I had to sign a paper as well and wham they tested me...lol the bad part is I didn't smoke on a regular basis and it just happened that I did the one time then found out I was pregnant. The social worker asked me if I wanted to talk about my problem. I told her I don't think one positive test indicates I have a problem. It was craziness.

that is generally not their first step these days so don't worry.
at least here, the process of they do drug test,is to go do a home visit. if you aren't cooking meth or running a human trafficking ring there's really nothing too worry about. most states have a system like that since there are already way too many babies in foster care and they will want to give you a good chance at success.

If they take your baby, I would be deeply shocked. They usually do a home visit after you leave the hospital.

They took him for 2 weeks to make sure she was clean the whole time. if you think they might take the baby for whatever reason they usually give you the option to request a family member to take the baby before they're put in a temporary foster home. I know it's crappy!

Not always. It depends on the state and the circumstances. Down in Florida family members have to pass a home study before being allowed to take a remanded child.

They will drug test if your doctor and/or any nurse or hospital faculty have reason to believe there is some kind of drug abuse going on. I wasn't drug tested, but my friend was and her son is not in her custody for him being positive on thc. Bs I know but it can happen. Do u have your card?
