Any advice for Texas grandma taking care of the kids?
Hi- I have 4 grandkids, age 1,3,6, & 8 years old. They all are living with me for the past 2 months after being removed from their home by children's protective service. They were being neglected due their parent's drug use, and because of the continued drug use, it looks like I am about to get custody of them. My husband is disabled,in bad health which affects our income.I work part time and have been trying to get a bachelor's degree, but it will take 2 more years. Does anyone know anyting about Texas laws? I am looking for any advice, tips, etc. I know I can get foodstamps and child health insurance, but am worried sick over how I will provide for 4 children and have the energy to try and work full-time. I've barely had enough spare time to make many phone calls or gather information, but have now decided to search the internet and join a few groups seeking advice. I want to be prepared when the social worker visits, so that I know what questions to ask.
