Military Mom Has A New Fight On Her Hands

United States Army veteran Amanda Hurst has served her country in Afghanistan and Iraq, and was honorably discharged from service in 2013. According to KFOR, she would return home to find she had a new fight on her hands.

When she was deployed to Afghanistan back in 2009, Amanda left her then eight- and seven-year-old children in the custody of her stepmother. Her stepmother moved to New Jersey with the children, but things would go south from that point.

The state stepped in when the children proved to be too much for the step-grandmother to handle. Apparently her daughter had some discipline issues and her son became aggressive toward his step-grandmother, which landed the children in the care of New Jersey’s Department of Children and Families. The children remain in foster care, but Amanda is working hard to get them back.

“I want my kids back. I wanna be with my kids. I’ve missed so much of their lives serving my country that I don’t wanna miss anymore,” she said.
