If you live paycheck to paycheck and trying to get stable and you're trying to do right to get your daughter back and you have to provide stable housing but you can't afford it isn't the state required to help you with low income housing in some way shape or form
So.....you think you should have a child when you are unstable, with no place to live and live paycheck to paycheck barely able to support yourself.....and that its the obligation of the government to provide housing for you so you can get your child back ? Candidly, that view of the world is exactly why the courts and CPS remove children and focuses on the best interests of the children not the emotional neediness of the biological parents. You are missing the point - developing the ability and means to be stable and able to support yourself AND a child is the foundation for being a good parent. You aren't asking the State for help - you are asking the State to do your job and then be rewarded as if YOU accomplished something. Your post belies the problem when you refer to "trying" to get stable and "trying" to do right and "trying" to provide a good home - when the world revolves on the Yoda Principle where there is no "try"......only "do". People that equate trying with doing are simply seeking praise for effort not achievement and reward for failure not accomplishment. Start DOING and you will see things change for the better.
