I agree 100% with JJ and most of the others here. Right now the children are fed, sleep comfortably, eat regularily, plus they are together, even though the love and guidance they need they don't get at home. But once social services sticks their nose in when called, all hell could break lose. The kids sent to separate homes of God knows who or where. This way you are near and they know and love you, and you them. You can keep watch so if things did change for the worse you could then and only then report any neglect or abuse. Believe me, having a clean house growing up does not a good, healthy child make!!! It takes so much more and apparently you are their saving grace for now. BRAVO for your kindness.
