yes what Daffy said

wow that is really testing for you Luci
always be on your own side, fighting for yourself and the children
representing yourself
its hard work being ourselves sometimes
but when they see how passionate you are about the children
and how much you have been harmed
things will go well for you

keep posting ...

We haven't even been in the court room yet. Lots of issues being raised about the validity of the information social services are using.... lots of sitting about waiting and frustration -_-

Judge validated my concerns. Social worker provided bias and incorrect information, not just in his assessments but to the other parties and services involved. This has caused furthur delay but is an important finding. :D
The hearing is now going to stretch over 2 weeks. 2 days this week and one or 2 days next week
Please send strength and positivity my way and keep my children in your thoughts ♡

Will you have your chance to say what’s being said is incorrect. Have you a solicitor that you can speak to

I have a barrister and she is excellent. She is meticulous and is also a trained psychotherapist. She has done a fantastic job of advocating for me. Thank you ♡
