Something happened to me that has me gravely concerned. Today my wife got a call from someone whom she knew when she was younger. She was having some serious problems with drugs and my wife ended calling the Children's Aid Society, and subsequently her daughter was taken into foster care. While on the phone, for reasons I cannot fathom, my wife told her it was she who called the CAS. Predictably, her "friend" was not too pleased. Unpon finding this out, I have gone into a panic. My chest is tight and I am extremely frightened of possible reprisals from this woman, after all, she knows our address, and now my wife is likely the one who will be to blame (in her mind) for losing her daughter. I am afraid to sleep, afraid to go to work and leave my wife alone, afraid of everything. There was a case of "a settling of accounts" that happened last year in my city in which a firebomb was thrown through a window and two children died. I feel fairly convinced that my family now risks a similar fate.
This woman was addicted to heroin in the past and as a result, I believe that she likely has many connections with the less savoury characters in the city. Although she said she was clean and putting her life back together, I am afraid that this will be what sends her over the edge. People have been killed for much more petty things in the past.
I don't know what to do. There is no legal recourse because no threats have been made, but at the same time, I feel like a "sneak attack" could happen at any time. I feel that I may fall into a sort of paralysis. I don't know what to do. Please help!!!
