Hi @Emzoh90 and welcome to our online community!
Firstly, I just want to say that i'm so sorry to hear that you're going through so much right now. I can only imagine how stressful and confusing this must all be for you. I can hear just how much you care about your children so i'm sure it must be so heartbreaking to have had them taken away from you. Have you had any contact with your children since they were put in care?
With so much going on, I am just wondering if you are receiving any support for yourself during this time? It can be so hard going through such a stressful situation on your own, so if you haven't already, it could be worth looking into additional supports or resources such as a counsellor or psychologist.
I also just want to remind you that you are not alone and we are all here for you.

I'm certain that this is not the way you'd hoped to see your kids, but I'm glad to hear that you're still able to spend some time with them at your mother in law's place. I can only imagine how heartbreaking it is to leave them each day.
With everything that's going on for you, I can definitely understand why it's difficult for you to keep pushing through and do things like going to work. It would be hard to try and focus on anything else when you're fighting for your kids, especially for such a prolonged period. What do you do to look after yourself when you aren't at work or with you kids?
That's great to hear that you've been in contact with your GP, but I'm sorry that the waiting list is so long for counselling at the moment. In the meantime, if you think it might be useful for you, it might be worth checking out Relationships Australia. They have some great resources for parents who are trying to regain custody of their children and how to cope in the meantime.
Please feel free to keep us updated on how you're going, thinking of you.
