Your experience with DHR is very common. You should keep in mind that DHR is not on your side. DHR is not your friend. It is the same as expecting police to help a person charged with a crime. DHR is an arm of the executive branch of the government. I have seen very few parents succeed in dealing with DHR without the assistance of a lawyer. On the other hand, I often see parents prevail quickly against DHR when they hire their own lawyer. I recommend that you not speak with DHR, enter any agreements or cooperate in any manner without the advice of an experienced attorney. DHR is present to gather evidence, which is likely going to be used against you. I recommend you immediately hire a skilled lawyer to help salvage what rights you have not already waived by trying to cooperate. It sounds like the next step may be to terminate your parental rights. I wish you the best.
