1. 4-21 AM Thank you for all your efforts. There is absolutely no reason on this earth as to why we should be separated from two of our relatives. However, CPS ensures that this does happen. We don't know why; other, than my niece was a marketable baby. No there was no money or help when I was expressing an interest in obtaining custody. It was I who had to pay. If fact, I had no rights from the sounds of what attorney's were telling me. "I was not a party to the case"; although I believe there was a referance in a court order that stated that "there was no living relatives".
