The story of this young family could have turned out much differently, and no one is happier to report its good ending than its caseworker.
She was there at the low point, when her job was to remove the 7- and 4-year-old from the home because the parents were addicted to drugs.
"Neither were working, and they were cooking meth to support their children," she said.
Losing their kids was a wakeup call.
Normally, the caseworker's involvement would have been only at the start of this story. But she changed jobs within her agency and subsequently followed their case.
Within seven months of that horrible day, the parents have completed drug treatment. Both have found jobs.
"They have worked incredibly hard, accomplishing a complete lifestyle change in a short amount of time," the caseworker said. They currently receive no public assistance, and though they work for minimum wage, they are able to pay for basic expenses such as rent, utilities and food.
The man and woman, both 30, have expressed their gratitude over and over again to their caseworkers. Soon, they'll be reunited with their children.
