arabian will become famous soon enough

We obviously only know one side of things.

If mother doesn't have anything to hide, one would hope that she does the right thing and calls Children's Services for assistance. I think it would be better for professionals to do their analyses of both homes and position the children in the best place until such time as the court makes a decision. I have no personal experience with Children's Services but one would hope that they interview all involved parties; inspect homes; do criminal checks of people living in homes, etc?

I recall when I was 10 my parents told me, prior to their extended European tour, that if anything happened to them I would go to live with relatives in another province. I was mortified. These people were bible-thumping types who lived on the farm. I told my parents that I would NEVER live with them. I meant it. It would have been horrible. I'm sure the Children's Services will spend time with the children and try to do the right thing. Losing a parent is a very tough thing.
