I have a question concerning "child abuse investigation". I had my daughter 8/23/2001 after a very difficult pregnancy. I had gone into premature labor. The ambulance came to my house and took me to the hospital. Due to extreme discomfort and limatations placed on me my house was not spotless(a few dishes in the sink, some papers around the living room and the floors needed mopped). Also the bottoms of my feet were dirty because i chose to walk around barefoot. this was my first child and there was no indication that i would be abusive. At the hospital they informed me that the paramedic had filed potential abuse papers with DFACS. As a result i went through months of random inspections and child care classes. I would never abuse my child as i have been abused and know how it feels. Also my child is extremely advanced for her age--can identify 4 colors at 11 months and speak 75 words plainly combining some into 2 word sentences--something that would not take place in an abusive home.
Because of all this, im terrified to discipline my daughter in public or even let her cry it out at night. I have lost sleep because i live in fear that DFACS will take my baby away for no reason.
Was it legal for them to conduct an investigation like that when there was no report of actual suspected abuse.
