About 5 years ago I was married with 3 boys. What I didn't know was that while I was at work, my husband at the time was not watching my children. The neighbor lady called the CPS and had them taken. after a year of my ex not getting any better at taking care of them at visits, they told us we should give up guardianship to a family member so we wouldn't lose them to adoption. We signed over guardianship to my ex's cousin and his wife. About 2 months after that, my ex threatened my life and I filed for a divorce. I went and got my own place and asked for guardianship. The cousins told me I didn't make enough money to support 3 children. I then went and got my GED and enrolled in college to get a better job to support my kids. Meanwhile, I had financial difficulties and I couldn't go and see my kids for a few months. When I got more financially stable, I asked if i could see my kids and they told me no because I hadn't been much of a mother lately. I had tried to get a hold of them a couple times after that but they wouldn't return my calls or answer my letters. I graduate in December, and I just got a letter in the mail from their lawyer stating that they wanted to adopt my kids and wanted to know if I was ok with that. My question is, what should I do now? Should I answer them right away or should I wait until I graduate and go for custody instead? Should i write them a letter asking for visitation to show that I still want to see my kids or should I go to court to get visitation? I am terribly missing my kids and she won't even send me any pictures of them, but my ex has school pictures of them on his Facebook page, even though I know for a fact that he never visits them. Please help!
