Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What was the reason the Care Order was made and what does the Prohibited Steps cover?
Will your CPN confirm that your mental health has improved?
When did you last see you son and when is the next LAC review?
For clarity - do you mean you last saw him a month ago?
When is he due back?
Who is he with?
Who has he gone to Kenya with?
Are you still under the care of a CPN?
Are you actually taking your drugs?
If you wish to be in a position to have your child with you again then you must commit to taking the drugs indefinitely and persuade the medics that you will do so.
It is unlikely that you will be able to change the existing arrangements prior to the next LAC review.
If when he comes back your son has changed his mind about living in Kenya then you could make an immediate applictaion to lift the Prohibited Steps Order but I am afraid that unless this is the case there is no point in doing so
However if your health continues to improve then you can apply to increase the Contact - with a view to rehabilitation with you in due course
Please ask if you need further details
If your health is stable and the overnight Contact starts and continues (at his request) then you can apply to the court for him to be returned to your care
