    to brea, if you can get evidence of this i'm sure you can get away from her. the problem is...you'll probably be taken in to another foster home. unless you can prove you can support yourself on your own (having a place to stay, possibly a job, or family that can take you in)

    chelsea, sorry if i spelled your name wrong but the chances of you achieving your goal is very slim... if you actually take this to court, the judge will probably not grant it because there is no serious reason for you to be removed, plus you'll be 18 in 6 months so he/she will probably say you can just wait

    To Melody from AZ, first off I am a mother and I have a daughter and 2 step sons. First off don't give up on school you are so young, second look for resources in your community. You sound so desperate and I was once your age and made many bad choices do to the environment that I was living in and always felt the need to run. Please look for resources in your community. Maybe there is an alternative learning center in your county or a community counseling center. You have options but stay in school, trust me, I do know. Thanks and search out your future is important!!!
