I could see myself making this rash decision and contacting DHS, especially now that my husband seems okay with it. I don't want to do something that I may regret though, or something he may resent me for. I could easily tell myself that it is not my place to step up and help this child, and it is not, but whose place is it? If I don't, who is going to? No one at work, that is for sure. Then when I pause and stop thinking about the child and think of my family instead, it becomes apparent how many difficulties it could cause. Still, I feel like I should do something. She shouldn't be with the family she is with now, that is for sure.
I may not even be able to help, DHS probably has it all planned out, but their plan has not worked so far. Taking a child out of an abusive environment only to place them in another one is useless. They might as well of had let her stay with her mother. I don't know what to do, or if I should even try to do something. I have mentioned it at work, and have been warned not to do it, that I should not get involved. I don't know maybe I am crazy for even thinking of it, but what if I could make this one child's life better?
