Put aside whatever you think of me for the sake of a kid I care a lot about. I have a member of my family who is eight years old and neglected to the point where I know for a fact their mother would wash his hands of them in a heartbeat. There is no need for me to air what has happened on here but I want to give the kid a home but have not a fucking clue how to approach this at all. The bairn is passed to whoever will have him and his mother hasn't seen them in nearly two weeks. If anyone has ever had any experience of this sort of thing or ideally works in some kind of social service drop me a pm please. I know I act the arse on here but today I have learned that she now has been reported to social services (rightly) and there is fucking no chance he is leaving his family. Cheers.
