CPS Visit Is Over
Without going into too much detail, it seems like the case worker is of the opinion that BM is a typical divorced mother who starts shit with her kids once her ex decided to marry someone else. She sees that BM has mental health issues. She's sure that BM is angling for full custody so she can ask for support, since this whole issue with the abuse allegation started when she was fired from her job.
That being said, I'm still not super confident the allegation will be unfounded. I don't trust CPS. They never helped my BS when he really needed it, and I just don't trust CPS. Not that any abuse happened, obviously, but supposedly "SS" has "proof." She couldn't tell us what that "proof" was, but I'm sure he and BM thought of something really creative. They're both so ducking sick in the head. Truly. Both of them. They're quite a pair.
So, guess we'll probably be paying support soon, and it'll be a good chunk of money. I cringe at the thought of giving her a single penny to spend on Taco Bell and a new iPhone for herself, but DH is fine with paying support to keep them both out of our lives and keep CPS away. I guess he has a point. Pay for peace.
My mom...bless her heart. She's been so supportive of us since BM started her shit almost four years ago. She loves DH dearly. I talked to her after the visit this morning, and she said, "You know, of all five of my kids, you're the one who keeps getting all the shit, year after year after year. My own son is grown and I'm still dealing with crazy shit. It never ends. Ain't that the truth.
