Monday 7th April
**** and **** had no clothes all weekend and were still in school uniform. (was informed by my daughter)
10.00 my husband was in court. Bailed with restrictions to stay at my mother’s house and not be allowed to the family home.
14.40 my husband and I attended Maison Le Pape to see *****.
After discussion with ***** we left with the impression that the children were coming home soon. She promised that she would bring ***** and **** home in the morning before 11.30 as she had a meeting at 12.00.
15.40 we left Maison Le Pape
Tuesday 8th April
Waited for promised phone call and children till 11.30. By this stage I was completely distraught. No call received.
Phoned 11.35 to ask when the children would come home. Was told ‘oh sorry we have now got to wait to see if you are being charged with wilful neglect’. yet again I could not believe what I was hearing.
I then informed her in no uncertain terms that they had no right to keep my children.
Wednesday 9th April
One hour supervised visit allowed with ****, no ***** with (come in no 1 you’re sacked). On seeing **** I gave him a hug, he was filthy, stunk and was in a fearful state. Seeing him like this made me extremely upset.
Asked if I would be able to cook tea for *****, I said of course I could.
***** was not allowed to stay at home. I was crying as she wrenched him away from me which left me in a state of collapse.
