    If I am in a position to take the child, absolutely. We have done something similar (but for family) several times.

    Yes. Without a doubt. The only thing that would sway me to a possible no would be if it was a close knit community and the parent was not accepting of the idea of having their child out into care and was likely to get violent towards us. In that case I think it would be best for all involved for the child to go somewhere where the parent is less likely to find them.

    In your case though, absolutely without any hesitation.

    That was kind of my variables also.

    In your situation I would see no issue. I feel like it would be easier to just have the kid full time, instead of sharing, purely for stability for them and not having to worry about coordinating things but would do shared also.

The agency is calling rather than me because according to others I'm not thinking overly rationally, don't see the need for hospitalisation & just aren't capable of doing much at all right now. If someone can't be found over the next few hours then DHS will place him somewhere (though I have asked for this not to be told to those I've given contact details for)

    There is no close friends to ask or family members. His dad is deceased so no help there either.

    I have given details of 3 families who can possibly help. 2 of which he has stayed overnight at regularly. 1 is a good friend of his - plays sport with & plays with at school. The other 2 he plays sport with but isn't so much friends but 1 has helped in the past & indicated where possible she would in the future but I used to be better friends with these 2 parents than I am now

    Good on you for seeking help. You are a strong woman for doing so!! Best of luck!

    Yes, in a heartbeat.

    I would like to say I'd discuss it with H first, but to be honest he probably wouldn't notice lol
