i was living with them after me and their son seperated. i think he even went to jail before i signed.. i didn't have anywhere to go. my parents were not very supportive unless i met their conditions for support. i was a stubborn kid learned everything the hard way.. my mother was a bit overbearing and controling. i know now it was bc she loved me but i couldn't get it when i was young. my ex mother was so nice and helped me to much and i was doing things my friends were they just hadn't had children yet. I never did anything for anyone to come and take him away from me i was protective of him myself. i wouldn't even put him in daycare. i don't trust daycares or anyone to watch my children besides my parents or the grandma that has my son. she is a very good person very loving. i know she loves my son like he is he own. i signed the paper bc i thought it was best if he had their ins and stability. i was struggling to even get my own place. i also thought they would give him back as soon as i was stable. so mostly i was dumb and niave. i was 20. i thought i was having a family when i had him and when dad turned out to not be the family type my ideal of family was hard to keep together. i wish i had been smarter at least asked alawyer for advice something but i didn't.. i still need to ask my son for forgiveness i have told him i was sorry. i remember when he was 3 and 4 and 5 he would cry when they wanted me to take him back. they would let me keep him for a week at a time then. but he would cry so bad that they wouldn't let him come back for a while and then wouldn't let him stay as long either.. i was far from perfect but i loved my son. i gave him to them bc i thought something was wrong with me and my ability to care for him. i loved him and i was young..
