My best friend lives in Oklahoma, we are about 4 hours apart in travel time. Back close to the end of March, after her sons birthday and before my sons birthday, DHS came and took her kids. All she was told at the time was that someone called and reported that she was abusing her children. She didn't keep an immaculently clean house, and the very next day cleaned her house to the immaculent state. Then she finds out that one of her so called friends mother is the one who called and said that to DHS. DHS placed her children in her sisters care. She was able to visit them and so forth. Then all of the sudden, she is called and informed her sister called DHS, told DHS she was too stressed and couldnt handle the kids and to come get them. My fried was able to get there and visit with her children for a short time before DHS came, and her sister refused to come outside to talk to her and wont even talk to her on the phone. Her mother is about to have a stroke because her sister did this, and my friends grandfathers health was worsening prior and they fear he may have a stroke or something. She still has not been given much info in regards to the case, visiting the children or anything. She was told they would be in a shelter then placed in foster homes, and that she could pick up some papers on the 25th of this month. I don't know what to tell her or anything, I am about as shocked as it can be, but I want to be there for her. My children chose to live with thier father and I have never had to deal with DHS before so I don't know what to expect or what to say. She knows I am here for her and would do anything for her that she needs me to. Has anyone had a similar situation and any possible advice? Please help.
