Re: Please help

That is a really tough and sad situation for the kids. I think at this point, their addictions are overtaking the children's welfare. I don't think child welfare look past the are the kids safe, fed and not bruised. Have you and your family talked about an intervention lately? Or what about talking to them about taking the kids until they get themselves together? It sounds like the kids need adults around the house, they need to feel loved and safe. If this is not happening, I would consider telling them that the kids will be with someone else in the family until they straighten out their act. This is not easy, not an easy task. I know it is hard and tolling, but just imagine if you get a call saying they were in a car accident with the kids. Terrible things can happen when two people are using and there are two small children fending for themselves. Also children don't usually want to leave their parents, they feels scared and like they are getting into trouble. If they did talk to child welfare you can't be sure they told the truth. I don't know if this helps at all, but it sounds like a scarey time for you all.
