Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
To be certain I understand - your son was taken into care because of your relationship with your ex.
You want to know whether or not resuming the relationship will mean that you will lose your younger children as well?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes this is what I'm getting at would I loose them too or would their be help in them working with us to prove their would be no violence in the relationship and that he is a changed person as it was my inabilaty to protect they were willing to work with my ex ten years ago but we then had another domestic and so they didn't get to work with him
Expert:  Clare replied 4 years ago.
It is highly likely that resuming a relationship with him will indeed place your care of your younger children at risk
i am sorry but you do need to decide which relationship is more important
Please ask if you need further details
