Too cut a long story short they lied again and told me he's been adopted yet I got a letter  last week stating my baby was still in foster care ready for adoption,so I attended court like it asked me to and the judge asked me if I wanted to applause I said yes I want my son back and will prove that I'm a fit mum,now I have to go back to court in 2 weeks time social workers haven't been in touch with me since they took.my baby can someone please give me some advice and guidance on what to do and expect please or what they might do because I can't go threw the heartache again of thinking I will get my boy back if I don't,thanx
