CHILD ‘PROTECTIVE’ SERVICES DESTROYED MY FAMILY (sent in an email by the author)

Each child in your family has a 1 in 25 chance of being the subject of a child abuse/neglect investigation this year. The chance of getting a flat tire on the family car is 1 in 70 (including Firestones).

Many children are taken from fit and loving parents solely based upon false allegations reported anonymously to a hotline, or as a result of a caseworker’s own personal judgment, or even by someone with a vendetta as in our case.

The State gains entry into private homes following the filing of a report of suspected child maltreatment. This report may be filed anonymously by anyone: a vindictive neighbor, a teacher, a day care provider, or an unstable busybody. You can lose your children from an anonymous phone call, with NO involvement from law enforcement, and NO charges of any wrong-doing. CPS controls the courtroom and employs the tactic of delay and “hide the ball” to keep families separated. This can go on for months and even years while children are separated from their families.

Actual acts of child abuse or severe neglect are not the primary allegations used to seize children from their families, meaning deliberate acts, willfully committed with the intent to harm - contrary to public assumption. CPS employs a method known as the "Clinical Model", in which the behaviors of the child are used to claim that there is some sort of obscure psychological abuse in the home that has traumatized the child.

“Child protection is one of the biggest businesses in the country. We spend $12 billion a year on it. The money goes to tens of thousands of state employees, collateral professionals such as lawyers, court personnel, court investigators, evaluators and guardians, judges, and CPS contracted vendors such as counselors, therapists, more evaluators, junk psychologists, residential facilities, foster parents, adoptive parents, MSPCC, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, YMCA, etc.”

Nev Moore, Founder of Justice for Families.

Service providers, called vendors, hold multi-million dollar contracts with CPS. Families are ordered to engage in "services" with these contracted vendors, all of whom bill Medicaid at enormously inflated rates for "services" that are often inappropriate, unnecessary, and completely irrelevant to the families situation, or to child maltreatment.

Behind the money is the socialist ideology that children should be raised by the state. This agenda was promoted by Dr. C. Henry Kempe (author of the Battered Child Syndrome) in the 1970's. An open supporter of the Communist party, he stated "We must remove children from the crude influence of their families and, frankly, nationalize them." Dr. Kempe emphasized the need for a "stealthy, incremental approach" to implementing the agenda to make families obsolete.

Families are coerced into participating by intimidation and the threat of losing their children. In return for fraudulently collected profits, the contracted vendors provide manufactured "evidence" of child maltreatment to support the claim that they need to keep the child in foster care. In return for this they receive more federal funding. Now this is truly job security.

Nothing in our life experience is more devastating than the abrupt, brutal, and
unwarranted forced separation by strangers. The parent-child bond is our strongest instinct, superceding all else. To have this bond severed by state agents who possess unhindered power, and give no thought or consideration to the fear, anxiety, and trauma that their actions cause, is a crime against humanity. This is happening to 4,600 children per day, right here in the United States of America.

The law states that a child can only be removed from their home as a last resort, and only when the child is at imminent risk of serious harm, but CPS does not follow established law and policy, and nobody makes them.

I home schooled 7 children and raised them in the Christian faith. My middle daughter (then 19 years old) walked across the street in January 2006 and told the neighbors that she was sexually molested with power tools, beaten with crow bars and burned alive. This all supposedly took place between the ages of 8 to 16 years. Never mind that there is no physical evidence of any of this (because it never happened). Not one of these neighbors bothered to come to my door to ask me if these things were true. My husband was arrested but subsequently released on bond.

The “protective” order drafted by this daughter disarmed us for 2 years. We live out in the country where predators threaten our livestock. None of us has ever pointed a gun at a human being, yet, this daughter “dreamed” that her father pointed a shotgun at the family and told them to get on the floor or he would kill us all. She later mentioned that the dream seemed “so real”. Yes, it was real enough to make sure we wouldn’t even be allowed to have ONE bullet in the home without fear of arrest.

My 2 youngest were taken away from me without a court order. CPS just walked in…and took them—NOTHING was done to keep them in the home. REMOVAL was the first and only choice of CPS. The law states that a child can only be removed from their home as a LAST resort, and only when the child is at imminent risk of serious harm. Removal of my two daughters, non-abused children, from their home was perceived by them to be an act of emotional and psychological terrorism. CPS does not follow established law and policy. They face no consequences for their illegal behavior. Law enforcement routinely submits to the whims of social workers as they did in our case as they accompanied CPS into the home and told everyone to get out of the house so CPS could “interview” me.

State and federally funded Child Protective Service agencies are seizing children from non-abusive homes in the absence of evidence or realistic cause to believe that the child is in danger of harm, an act of emotional and psychological terrorism, and CPS does not follow established law and policy. State and Federal regulations, and the Constitution of the United States. Children failed by the system have died while in the protective custody of the State, in the care of CPS and in foster care.

Normal, innocent people do not tend to be suspicious and defensive, so they usually cooperate when social workers knock on their door. This mother offered no resistance believing that truth and justice would prevail and that we had done nothing illegal and therefore had nothing to hide. Citizens should NOT be removed from their homes and family members based on nothing more than hearsay.

Federal statistics say that there are approximately 3 million reports of suspected child abuse and neglect each year. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services documents 900,000 as "substantiated", leaving over 2 million families per year FALSELY ACCUSED. Of the "substantiated" cases, 68% do NOT involve child maltreatment, according to the federal authorities. This figure is escalating at an alarming rate each year as over zealous reporting and frivolous intervention by CPS spins out of control.

Here in Texas, we have a similar rate of unsubstantiated cases of child abuse. “In 76.4 percent of investigations, investigative caseworkers either rule out abuse or neglect, or are unable to determine whether it occurred.” (Protecting Texas Children, Health and Human Services Commission, CPS Reform Recommendations 1.5 Screen Out Unnecessary Investigations...page 22 January 6, 2005)

The case dragged on with my 19 year old feeding CPS all kinds of lies...and they believed her. I asked this daughter HOW did she come up with these horrifying events that she told the authorities about. She responded that she did research on the internet and read case histories of sexual abuse. Then she said she “fantasized about it” to “make it more real…more believable”. Well, her lies, fantasies and dreams destroyed our lives. And she has been rewarded for it as well. She is going to school to become a social worker so she can join the ranks of CPS and “save abused children”: her words, not mine.

This daughter even perjured herself multiple times during our trial but there were NO consequences. There were also NO consequences when she failed to show up for the final day of our trial, even though she was under a subpoena. A legal system that tolerates perjury and the subornation of perjury can NOT produce justice.

Judges should not blindly go along with CPS and allow them to control court process, but fulfill their judicial canons by insisting that due process is followed, laws adhered to, and that procedural error is not tolerated. Parents are subjected to a highly irregular "civil" proceeding that makes a complete mockery of our judicial system. They are often told they may not speak or present exculpatory evidence as we tried to at the June 21, 2006 hearing regarding anonymous e-mails sent to our CPS caseworker.

The case degenerated into an exercise in character assassination and slander by neighbors who we have never met. Actual acts of child abuse or neglect that place the child at "imminent risk of serious harm" were not even discussed. Vague, obscure, and distorted allegations about our personalities and hearsay comprised the bulk of the “evidence”, including our "being in denial" and "anger problems".

Our family was put under a powerful, and distorted, microscope. Social workers asked bizarre and invasive questions. We were asked whether or not we had “explosives and missile launchers”, whether I intended to “run the pick up truck thru the public school, kidnap my daughters and take them to New Mexico and drink poisoned Kool-Aid and commit suicide”. One neighbor that we’ve never met, even wrote on a police statement that I come from a long line of devil worshippers. Perhaps this is why I was asked by the prosecuting attorney for CPS during the trial on the merits in June 2007, “did you ever drink blood?” I’d laugh my head off if this weren’t so serious…but unfortunately TRUE!

Under the CPS microscope every word, inflection, and action is attributed with the most bizarre and outlandish "meanings." If you have ever bounced a check, you have a "criminal record"; if your child is shy, they are "fearful and withdrawn"; if they are outgoing and active, they are "acting out due to the trauma."


Do the parents ever argue? Do they ever raise their voices? This is then documented as "domestic violence." The majority of the funding for domestic violence programs is channeled through CPS so this was no revelation to us. If parents deny domestic abuse or child abuse, they are told that they are "in denial", and this is all "part of the syndrome." Admitting - confessing - is one of the requirements. Truth and reality are not important. Saying the right things to keep federal funding flowing, is.

Federal law gives CPS 15 months to seek Termination of Parental Rights and have the child adopted out (and collect hefty adoption incentive bonuses—did we mention the money?) So, children are being put up for adoption based on the timeline, even when parents have not had a chance to answer the initial allegations, and in the absence of any evidence or charges that they have harmed their child. Social workers routinely perjure themselves under oath without ever facing any penalties or admonishment.

Meanwhile, children who have been removed from their grieving families are placed in state contracted foster homes and institutions which receive federal benefits. Residentials and other institutions hold multi-million dollar contracts with the social service agencies. Children are drugged, restrained, put in straight-jackets, some are sexually, physically, and emotionally abused. In Texas, 12,000 foster youth received psychotropic drugs in 2004. Each child averaged 21 psychotropic drug prescriptions a year. ALL are tormented by a system out of control.

One of my daughters CPS took from me "aged out" and returned home in April 2007. At one minute after midnight on her 18th birthday, we gratefully received her back into our arms. No one from CPS came out to our house to make sure it was “safe” for her to return. The day before she turned 18, she wasn’t even allowed to receive a phone call from us. The day after she turned 18, none of them cared. They don’t care because the Federal funding ceased when she turned 18. My 15 year old is not allowed to receive or make phone calls to us either. I am “allowed” a one hour a week, heavily supervised (by CPS) visit. She is not allowed contact with her brothers and sisters at all with the exception of the sister that was abducted along with her (the one that returned home to us recently) back in January 2006.

If social workers “care” so much for children, I have 2 questions for them:
1. Would you work without pay and sacrifice for the child? I did. No one paid me to be a mother, to carry the child for 9 months under my heart, to be there many sleepless nights when they had teething pain or were sick, prayed for them, taught them right from wrong, fed them, clothed them, educated them, gave up my time, and put off buying things for myself because I always put them first, just to name a few things that come to mind.

2. If a life-or- death situation arose, would you give your life for the child? I would. No questions asked.

Which of us REALLY has the “best interests of the child” at heart: parents or Social Services?

The financial incentives for shredding families, warehousing children until the barriers to adoption (parents) can be eliminated and children adopted out, are lucrative. CPS is part of a $12. billion dollar a year, tax payer fueled, child abuse industrial complex which provides jobs for caseworkers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, various court personnel, psychotherapists, foster homes, pharmaceutical vendors and a host of others.

This is a HUGE growth industry that provides private profit through Medicaid. Service providers (vendors) hold multi-million dollar contracts with the social service agencies. Families are ordered to engage in "services" with the contracted vendors, all of whom bill Medicaid at inflated rates for "services" that are often inappropriate, unnecessary, onerous, and completely irrelevant (not to mention unconstitutional) to the families situation, or to child maltreatment.
This writer is 57 years old and has been married to the same man (the biological father of our 7 children) for 32 years. I am a registered nurse, do not drink, smoke, never did drugs, don’t even have a traffic ticket. I have never abused my children nor has my husband sexually molested any of my children. My husband has worked for the State of Texas since 1979. WHY is this happening to us?

Do you, dear reader, have any idea WHAT it feels like to have a child taken away for NO reason? Can you imagine the pain and anguish that comes in unrelenting waves as you try to figure out why this is happening? How would you like to be falsely accused of child abuse with your name smeared all over public records for horrific events that NEVER OCCURRED? What would it feel like to have your reputation destroyed? How would you like it if neighbors driving by your house slowed down and stared…and took pictures of your house? And every time you walk in the gas station or the feed store where the ranchers gather for coffee, they suddenly stop talking and stare at you? Did it ever occur to any of you to come to my door and ASK me if these things were true? Or was it more fun to gossip and believe the madness because it’s more exciting than reality? Now, we’re just collateral damage in the war against children, just another family chewed up and spit out by the State.

Families are coerced into participating by intimidation and the threat of losing their children. In return for these fraudulently collected profits, the contracted vendors provide manufactured "evidence" of child maltreatment to support CPS claims that they need to keep the child in foster care. In return for this they receive more federal funding. Now this is truly job security.

On May 21, 2007 the CPS trial on the merits began in the Caldwell County Judicial Center in Lockhart, Texas. It consisted of 6 days of persecution and mockery of my lifestyle and personal beliefs and made a complete travesty of our judicial system. Their “evidence” consisted of hearsay and e-mails allegedly authored by my 19 year old daughter. Constitutional violations were rampant throughout this ordeal.

The Guardian Ad Litem testified that it wasn’t “safe” for my 15 year old to return home “(even if the father were removed)” because she would “suffer thru abuse rather than report it”—“even if she continued going to public school because when she got back home, her mother would deprogram her.” WHAT abuse? “DEPROGRAM”? Does CPS normally “deprogram” it’s victims by telling them—as they told my daughters-- “your mother doesn’t love you”, “she abandoned you”, “your mother chose her husband over you”, “it’s all because of your parents that you are here in this emergency shelter now”, “your parents aren’t cooperating, it’s not our fault you are here”, “why don’t you pray to your God—see if He will answer your prayers and get you out of this place.” Your tax dollars at work. . .

Harvard psychiatrist Chester M. Pierce stated that "Every child in America entering school at the age of 5 is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well by creating the international child of the future." I guess the State of Texas and the public schools are just “making my sick daughter well”.

We USED to be Christian home schoolers. Evidently, the State of Texas has a resocialization program underway to destroy my daughter’s belief system since it’s a crime to be a Christian and to home school. It is socialist ideology that children should be raised by the State. Dr. C. Henry Kempe, author of the Battered Child Syndrome and an open supporter of the Communist party stated: "We must remove children from the crude influence of their families and, frankly, nationalize them."

On June 26, 2007, after 6 days of "trial", I was adjudicated as an unfit mother in spite of NO evidence of abuse and with the civil court’s full knowledge that “the criminal charges against my husband (which were fabricated by my 19 year old daughter) would be dismissed any day now because of lack of evidence”. Indeed, criminal charges WERE conveniently dismissed June 28, 2007--2 days AFTER CPS court rendered their decision. This is CYA (cover your afterburner) in operation. As of this writing, we are appealing to the Third District Court in Austin, Texas. SOMEBODY in this universe needs to investigate the corruption going on in CPS.

My youngest child (who will be 16 years old in February 2008) will remain in permanent managing conservatorship of the State and continue to reside in foster care against her will and despite her telling the judge, Guardian Ad Litem and all the rest of these people--on multiple occasions since her wrongful abduction by State actors known as CPS on January 11, 2006, --that she was never abused and just wants to return home. It doesn't matter how many times you tell CPS there was no abuse, they just tell you that you are in "denial" and "not cooperating". Children should NOT be held as indentured servants or held in thrall to others for acts they have not committed.

My daughter in CPS custody has not been allowed to see her brothers and sisters since their visits were cut off during a court hearing in February 2007. Before that, they were allowed a one hour a week visit. No phone calls were ever permitted and still are not to this day. We tried to get permission to have some phone contact with her but the Judge denied it again as recently as August 1, 2007. The reason the siblings’ visits were cut off was that the CPS caseworker told the court that 2 of the siblings were passing notes to my daughter. Yes, my son passed her a $20. Federal Reserve note because she needed money to buy school supplies and clothes for school. Evidently, Caldwell County doesn’t have enough money to buy what she needs. When we home schooled, there was always food, clothes and supplies for the children.

My husband is not allowed to have a visit with our daughter (in CPS custody) because he refuses to take sex offender therapy. He refuses to take it because he is not a sex offender. In retaliation for not cooperating with the court, the Judge is punishing him by cutting off his visits. CPS has gone above and beyond to punish us. The weekly one hour visit is held at CiCi’s Pizza, a highly public area next to the Army, Navy and Air Force Recruiting Stations. Apparently, the Judge thinks that my husband may leap over the pepperonis and molest our daughter, with a CPS agent sitting right next to us and 3 branches of America’s finest next door. He is however, allowed to be around my 15 year old grandson (same age as my daughter). The only difference between them is…my grandson was not incarcerated by CPS and pimped out to obtain federal funds.
After our trial, the Judge said that “REGARDLESS of the outcome of the criminal case, my husband has to take sex offender therapy” and our daughter can’t come back home unless recommended by THEIR CPS contracted, bought and paid for, psychologist. We tried to offer another expert opinion to testify that it was safe for her to come home, but the Judge practically RAN him out of the court room. They don’t want to hear anything that doesn’t agree with their paradigm. They certainly aren’t interested in the truth. Citizens should NOT be censured by public officials for crimes they have not committed.

I’d like to know how Caldwell County even GOT an indictment in the first place. All the so called “evidence” is whatever my daughter told them. There is no physical evidence of “sexual molesting with power tools, beatings with crowbars and burning in the fireplace”…. BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENED. My husband’s criminal lawyer told us the “grand jury rubber stamps indictments presented to them by the District Attorney”. Maybe that’s why this D.A. was voted out of office and replaced in January 2007. This former D.A. indicted several people during the same time span (that my husband was indicted) that also never should have been indicted. One particular, well known individual that comes to mind, put an ad in the Luling Newsboy newspaper apprising the people of Caldwell County that his charges were dropped by the D.A.’s office.

My husband and I took all the court ordered parenting classes required by the State of Texas and attended weekly psychotherapy sessions thru CPS contracted vendors. These sessions consist of nothing more than coercive persuasion designed to interrogate, break down your will and cause you to believe the unbelievable. In the end, it’s all for nothing. CPS tells you that you’re “in denial” and being “uncooperative”. It feels more like Nazi Germany and the Soviet gulags every day.

Think I’m being too harsh comparing CPS to Nazis? Homeschooling was a basis for child endangerment charges under Hitler. The German High Court (Hamburg) ruled in 1936 that "Custody rights shall be terminated for parents who, as fanatical Bible students, cannot rear their children in accordance with today's State and because this endangers the mental wellbeing of the children, who are thereby prevented from participating in the national community."

CPS routinely employs unconstitutional actions, fraud, extortion, deceit, kidnapping, and conspiracy in an ongoing criminal enterprise designed to cheat the public and destroy families of the United States of America for profit, for agrandizement and to delude the public into thinking their actions are for the general welfare of this nation. Unconstitutional summary judicial proceedings designed to perpetrate for-profit crimes against humanity, family dismemberment and human trafficking, and to defraud the Federal Government for Social Services Agency operational funds have been perpetrated upon many families in America.

Child Protective Services, in taking children who do not meet the statutory definition of abuse or neglect from loving homes is creating more throwaway children than they are legitimately saving. CPS actors merely decide that children are “at risk” and that abuse or neglect may occur in the FUTURE. These are POLICE STATE TACTICS that are routinely deployed against citizens of totalitarian regimes. What happened to due process? What happened to the Constitution of the United States of America? Where is the Bill of Rights? Dismembering families and creating artificial orphans by means of fraud and/or deceptive trade practices is NOT legitimate government business.

CPS engages in for-profit crimes against humanity consequent to the unlawful dismemberment of families to create human trafficking victims from which the County earns Federal funds with which to fund it’s operations. The exploitation of men, women and children for financial gain is the definition of human trafficking, which the U.S. Secretary of State Condolleza Rice states is a modern day form of slavery. http://usinfo.state.gov/gi/global_issues/human_trafficking.html

Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, in Fiscal 2003, 30 foster children died in our state's care; in Fiscal 2004, 38 foster children died; and in Fiscal 2005, 48 foster children died. Data shows that while the number of foster children in our state's care increased 24 percent from 26,133 in Fiscal 2003 to 32,474 in Fiscal 2005, the number of deaths increased 60 percent.
Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn Statement On Foster Care Abuse given Friday, June 23, 2006 in Austin, Texas

DFPS statistics themselves underscore the fact that my 15 year old daughter is in FAR GREATER DANGER in the custody of CPS than she is in the care of her falsely accused biological parents. The State of California published the following statement: called the “perverse incentive factor,” States and counties earn more revenue by having more children in the system – whether it is opening a case to investigate a report of child abuse and neglect or placing a child in foster care.” Facts-at-a-Glance, Child Welfare in California, 09-09-2003 www.dss.cahwnet.gov/pdf/facts.pdf

At the end of FY 2003, Texas DFPS had legal responsibility for 22,346 children. Of that total, 15,414 children resided in foster care. In the same time period, there were 6,932 children in the Department’s legal custody who were not residing in foster care. Texas, as does California, PROFITS FROM HUMAN TRAFFICKING, which is a deplorable manner by which to fund County operations.

Some statistics from the State and County where I live:

In FY 2003, CPS conducted 131,130 investigations of abuse and/or neglect in Texas and confirmed abuse and/or neglect in 32,792 cases. In FY 2004, the number of child abuse and/or neglect investigations is expected to increase by 10 percent over FY 2003. In FY 2005, the percentage is expected to increase by four percent over FY 2004. http://www.hhs.state.tx.us/StrategicPlans/HHS05-09/final/pdf/Chapter08.pdf

In 2005, the child population in Caldwell County was 10, 258. There were 510 intakes alleging abuse/neglect, 448 cases were assigned to CPS caseworkers, 329 completed cases alleging abuse/neglect, 539 alleged victims in completed cases, 101 confirmed cases, 153 confirmed victims, and 131 cases opened for in home services.

CALDWELL COUNTY FY 2007 - 2008 COMMUNITY PLAN FOR COORDINATION OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND RELATED ACTIVITIES

In 2006, the number of child sexual abuse clients served at Roxanne’s House (a program of the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center) was 73. 30 were from Lockhart, 17 from Luling, 4 from Maxwell, 5 from Martindale and 17 from other Caldwell County areas. 26% of the child abuse clients served at Roxanne’s House were from Caldwell County in that year.

Two of my daughters are statistics in the 2006 report. NEITHER were EVER abused in any way, shape or fashion until they were abducted by the State of Texas. This was emotional TERRORISM and TORTURE of the highest magnitude, conducted under the pretense of keeping my daughters “safe” from imaginary “risk”.

It’s all about the money. And there’s no money in family reunification and returning my daughter home. For information about CPS, drugging foster children for profit, and the social engineering of our nation’s children, please check out my site at: http://texasroadrunner.spaces.live.com/
Citizens should NOT be more afraid of social workers than they are of criminals. To this end, I have uploaded over 1,000 documents in PDF format for your edification and enlightenment in the Public Folders section of my site (scroll down to the bottom of the page and you’ll see them).

I am a volunteer at CPS. When I began there I had no idea what to expect. I thought that all CPS did was take children away from families but what I learned is that they truly do help and protect children. CPS does its best to keep the children with their families. They offer programs to help the parents because they want the parents to be able to keep their children. The agency gains nothing from taking the children away from their parents and I am sorry that there are people that feel that way. During my volunteer hours I work with a wonderful caseworker. She genuinely loves every child that is in her care. She works long hours for little pay and she does it gladly because she loves to help these kids. I honestly dont see how someone can think that this is a buisness and that these people work for the money when there really isnt much money to be made. I am truley sorry that this happened to you but without CPS there would be thousands of kids with no where to go. Kids that would be forced to live in abusive homes. I know because i have seen it. I have seen the damage that some parents have done to their kids and i thank God that there are people with the heart to help these kids. I am currently going towards a degree in social work and even though i know it is not the best paying degree I wish to get this degree because I care.

Nobody ever said that all caseworkers were bad. Lots of them are, but not all. Nobody ever said that there wasn't a need to protect children. There is. However, lots of cronies get state contracts and make lots of money. Lots of foster children have their lives destroyed. Lots end up homeless, in jail, on drugs, pregnant, medicated, abused in foster care. Lots of kids are taken because they are poor. Lots of kids are taken for no real reason because of overzealous caseworkers who like to jump the gun, panic because of what happened to some other kid that caused a public outcry which the state uses to plead for more money to hire more workers, put more kids into care, then on the market.

If you're one of the good ones then good for you. You'll be corrupted soon enough. Just wait til your supervisor tells you to do something unethical.

Anybody reading this comment, please remember that workers are master liars. Anybody who has ever dealt with them knows this.

The foster care system is no better or safer than an abusive home.

A friend of mine just had her kids essentially stolen from her and given to her parents. She has no history of abuse or drug use. She doesn't know where to turn and I am very worried for her. Do you have any ideas on any next steps to help her get her kids back? Please email me if so @ momzilla42@aim.com.

My 11 yr old daughter has said that my husband (her step-father) molested her and CYFD came in and was real nice when I belived her...but as her stories changed depending on the person she told it to...My husband came home and I took my daughter to her father's house to "keep her safe" till the whole investigation was done...CYFD now turned on me and states I am an unfit mother a danger to my children and myself...even though I haven't done anything wrong...Now I am fighting for both of my daughters to come home to be with their brothers, their mother, and to the only man that stepped up as their father...my ex now is using all these lies told to gain full custody and supervised visits...When he wasn't even there for years...I am being punished for being a mother and a wife nothing else...

Maybe the one you should be looking to to blame is your daughter. If she had not fabricated the lies you woud not ever have been in this mess. I guess the key lies in teaching your children not to lie, and teach them to value family. Perhaps you did try to do this with your daughter...perhaps she is just in need of mental health services, which you could have caught on to early on and referred her there, then she might have had a history of being a story teller.
Trust me, it all started with her lie, had she never made up the story, "fantasized" about it then reported it, cps would never have entered your lives.
I realize that the system can be flawed...but the flaws are not intentional. Social workers don't go into practice wielding a pitch fork, we go in with empowerment and empathy. If a child tells a detailed story of abuse then of course we HAVE to take a second glance...and if their story is as horrific as this one sounds, then we HAVE to remove...suppose the allegations are true? Which I am not suggesting that they are.
I really feel bad for you, I'm sorry that you have had to endure all of this pain but please don't blame the system, we didn't go hunting for your daughter, she came looking for us and a call for help must be answered. We only hope that a child wouldn't be vile enough to fabricate something that would break up their family. Honestly, your daughter is the only one who could have turned this around...why she did not recant her story after seeing all the hell she put you through is beyond me.

I sincerly symperthise with your story 100% because the same thing is happeneing to me... and every thing you have said about finances ect is exactly what ive been saying for the last 8 yrs. Its a jobs worth issue not whats right.Social services perspectives are the biggest lies going and the poor children that genuinly need there support are being murdered or abused because social services are putting so much more energie in making examples of good perants out to be bad ones the bad one get away with litualy murder.

Children who lie to get their own way are heard... but YOU try to tell the truth of the matter and defend yourself they class you as agressive and angry but YOU wernt agressive or angry in the first place and they cant see what they are doing is more abusive to the children than what ever was said about you in the first place...

One rule for one... another rulle for them.

I better stop now coz im getting wound up again..

I wish you all the love in the world and hope that you like me will be able to move on fron this distructive situation...

im glad im not the only person to think the same way and your in the USA ... im in the UK.

xxx Krissy ENGLAND.
mother to 6 children 5 of whom live with me .
2 have neverbeen in care or had social services intervention.
3 of whom have run away form the placement and returned home to me (not to anyone else)
and 1 that im fighting a court case just to see and who is terrified of the placement and speaking her mind in fear of being told of by the carer.

As for Anonymous's comment that "You guys are full of shit" if this person is a socialworker.
then im sorry its you thats full of it.. this is happenenig the world over and every poxy worker i have had the displeasure of speaking to are either children them selves with no life experiance other than sitting behind a desk reading or having a placement in a nursey with no practical 24/7/52 get up in the middle of the night with a screaming child coz of nightmares/illnesses/nosebleeds ect. Having to raise children on a pittance and making a budget work, going with out food and clothes so that your child doesnt have to. getting no sleep because of running your self ragged looking after demanding children. Putting up with the lies they tell to get their own way and having them rip you heart out because they can because of all the b*****s they are being fed by the goverment saying if this .. fone this. (AND its not the way they were) brought up to behave.

How the HELL can a worker with no experiance have the ordasity to question or judge any person who like myself and this lady HAs DONE NOTHING to warrent this.

Social services need (sod political/sexual correctness)a big kick up the backside and only employ people who have actualy lived and experanced what others have been through . Coz i can tell you now i have more experiance in my little finger on how children behave i can read lies like a book and know when some one is telling the truth. WHY!! because ive lived it as a child and an adult.

A social worker should be a mother/grandmother whos divorced and been in an abusive relationship (b it emotional or physical) then they can tell you how to deal with situations and understand the bigger picture.

If Anonymouse was a perant who is going through the same situation then the comment was a just one.

The CPS is very corrupt. I had to place my daughter in a Group Home for severe mental health issues. Now they are trying to keep her until 18. Well they definitely will not be doing that. They steal children out of non-abusive homes and place them into abusive homes. They sit around the office and talk about children and their families on a daily basis. They to play hard ball. I will play by the rules. Legally they cannot keep children. I will get my back in May. Fight this corrupt department. Our children are our future. They care nothing about these children's future. I had to get a worker fired. Because she was messing over my daughter and other children. The new one i have i will get her fired. I donot feel she is for the children either. If you are successful and doing well. They and others will try things to tear your family apart.

Hello, I am going through this as well. My family is gone and I am told if my daughter changes her story that I will lose her forever. My daughter has told the truth but we are afraid to tell them. My daughter lives with my sister, my son lives with a friend under house arrest(he is innocent). I am just a scared mother wishing this nightmare would end.

How shocking.

Carmen Middleton said...

I am the original author of this post and would like to update the readers on what has happened to my CPS case:

On September 11, 2008, Beau ran away to escape CPS custody after being incarcerated for 974 days.
On September 4, 2009, Mark and I were divorced after 33 years of marriage.
On September 16, 2009, Mark and I appeared before CPS Judge Bonicoro again. She noted that it had been over a year since Beau had run away and since CPS had no idea where she was, she was taking them off the case. She then turned to us and stated “but YOUR status remains the same”…meaning her final orders are still in effect, so if Beau should come back to us, Mark won’t be allowed to be around her until she turns 18, and I can’t be around her until one of THEIR CPS contracted vendor shrinks says it’s okay to have unsupervised visits again—that’s visits, not live with her.
Both Beau and her sister Colette (CPS abducted them both on 1-11-06) are now Satanists since God didn’t answer their prayers and get them out of CPS custody.

Did I mention that CPS destroyed my family?

in the State of KY, the had a handout about how people can touch you"in a bad way" discussed it in class, my Daughter was 7. I think that was GROSSLY inappropriate. I am her Mom, I should be allowed to talk to my child/children about things like that, especially when you take into consideration the sheer number of "EDUCATORS" brought up on rape charges!

And as for the "DEVOTED" caseworkers. The majority of them are Educated in THEORIES of how to parent, have no idea about how SOME divorcing parents lie & involve CPS in order to get out of Child Support. They may have the best of intentions, but fail to find what is in the best interest of the child.

If you look back at our own childhoods, NONE of us would have been raised by our NATURAL parents! There was no widespread use of carseats, people smoked & drank while expectant, my parents spanked me when I deserved it (with hand, belt, switch, whatever they could reach) but I was not abused for the times, because it was NORMAL to discipline kids.

I have a stepchild now that I locked out of the house while she was playing on the slip & slide in the back-yard, I had just mopped and was allowing the floor to dry & keep the wet kids from knocking thier BRAINS out! She started screaming it was "child abuse to lock a child outside"

we are talking FIVE minutes, they were in OUR yard, and it was dangerous for them to run in & out on lineoleum while sopping wet!

Wonder where she heard THAT one?

Anonymous said...

Here is a thought...just a thought...did anyone ask for a lie detector test? seriously, if these issues keep coming up...and I know CPS has the best of intentions and they do try to do what is best for the child but everyone knows someone is lieing in each case be it the parent or the child or the nosy bored neighbor. Just start using measures of a lie detector test. Parents and children can be tested and behold the truth will set you free. A lot easier and cheaper than all the investigating, etc. It would save millions of tax payers and government money and prevent the trauma that this woman says happened to her and her family.

My son too was taken from my home and the same day placed with a family member who have left him on CPS's door step just 3 months before. The same person who set my hands on fire at the age of 6. I'm 49 years old now. My son was 2 when he was taken from me. I have not been aloud to see him or know where he lives. I have gone back to court but they believe I'm the bad one here and Its been so long now since I've seen him, He wants to stay with her. I miss my son every day and pray that someday he will chose to know the truth of all of this.

Yes I do Know this. My little girl was taken by my wife and took her away. She is a drunk, drove with them drunk in the car with them. Left them alone in a house on more times then i care to remember and has beat her son from someone else. and they gave her the children. And I am fighting right now for my little girl.

I made the horrible mistake of contacting Job and Family Services myself in order to get help, we were being evicted and I felt like I was caving under the strain of raising 3 children on my own. I was only reaching out for help... what followed was 3 years of pure hell. They took my own words and twisted them, the hoops they wanted me to jump through were so numerous and time consuming that I didn't have time left over to work... it was a vicious cycle that took me to the brink of madness.. When I refused to admit that lies were the truth I was labeled as being in "denial". I know that many abused kids are helped by CPS... however in my case the charges against me were "instability" because we had to move frequently and "substance abuse" because I took doctor prescribed anti-anxiety meds and happened to mention to a caseworker (I was so STUPID!!) that I was afraid I might be addicted to them. I was NEVER charged with hitting a child, or neglecting a child, never with not feeding or clothing a child... Nothing that you could call child abuse. Yet my children, under CPS protection, were moved around from foster home to foster home, ugh... I have to stop now, all this makes me sick...

My father is now 71 and his partner. i have been taken falsely to a hospital twice where they thought i should be so as they could give me drugs and try and give me shock treatment to make me better...OMG don't these imbecile's now by taking my daughter that was enough shock treatment for me...i am horrified that these people have the power to take our human rights away from us due to a phone call... I am a strong woman and my daughter i just like mother she will speak up like and in a loud voice...We will be heard and i will not stop talking even to media till she is returned home...Markitah will not be part of the STOLEN GENERATION she is to be brought back home... The Australian Government said SORRY to the Indigenous people of this country,that has to mean something...I so wish that you and your family get your children back and then make them accountable of there crimes as i am in the process of doing...30 years of being a mother and no one has ever crossed that and come for one of my children...I will make sure they never do it again...I AM GOING CLASS ACTION against these PARACITES and then civilly suing the Indian migrate that has no children to court as well...Stay strong and never give up hope you are such a brave and wonderful woman/mother ..stay proud... i told the DEPT and the worker these words and i stick by them...

The CPS and judges have been given to much power. CPS lies, twist and pad their own defence and a person never gets to tell the truth. The Bullitt County Family Court in Kentucky is run by a Judge who could care less about children's rights. Something has to be done about the abuse of biased power, poor personal judgement and special treatment of CPS workers by a Judge. Just try and get a lawyer in a small town who makes his/her living off the judge's grace to them. They will not fight for you because of fear it will upset the Judge and cost them money on their next case with the same judge.

My 16 year old and her boyfriend called the CPI and said I was drinking and driving with my 2 younger children and I was taking ecstasy.

The CPI came the next day to my suprise and tested me ror drugs and alcohol both were negative. She asked me if I drink a lot, I told her I used to drink a lot until 1986, but rarely ever drink and for 12 years never even touched it.

Her report said I drink a lot by my own admlsslon.She also checked off on her report everything was done to keep the family together. I had never even seen her before then she took my kids. It was that simple.

I have driven down the road and seen a mother coming out of a trailer holding her length of rope she was bringing outside around her baby's neck (who had a abusively full diaper)chasing down her drunken husband with a beer at 9am.. These are the type of people that never get investigated by these agencies and their children get abused until they mysteriously turn up dead. I have had cps show up to my home at 7 am with drug testing kits ready to inspect every inch of my child and home because they got an "anonymous" tip from 1200 miles away with a 2 page list of completely outrageous, false claims. I still had to run in their circles and it was INSANE. Supposedly there is a fine for frauding such agencies, but there is NO way to prove it... I am outraged and have to live in fear of what crazy, fake stuff is brewing up to sabotage my family. My mother in law simply doesn't want her 32 year old son to live away from her (although she neglected and abused him growing up) and so I have been set up and framed many times since. What does it take to stop wasting 90% of the tax money going to cpf from being wasted on cases of obvious fraud? There are SO MANY abused children that NEVER get helped because these people are too busy hassling innocent people and great parents!

It breaks my heart to hear so many stories of heartless social workers.
My good friend Vicky is a victim of the corrupt DCF system in Florida.

“Absolute POWER corrupts absolutely”

American Dream is not for illegal immigrants.

Victoria’s story is one of heartbreak, she thought the American Dream was to come here and work hard, make money to help her family and have a family of her own. Yes, both her and Jennifer are illegal; however, this does not mean that they are not human beings. Instead of the “American Dream” they have gotten the “American Nightmare”. Victoria has been bullied, DCF stole her sister and her nieces, she wants her family but they say because she is illegal she can not have them, she can not even see them. This is not true and we have asked for this law and it has not been produced. She wants her family. And Ms. Jensen, lawyer for DCF, has taken both of these children and her sister and removed them not only from their family but their culture to give them to the “American” family she feels is more appropriate, the legal, white family. These children are wanted by family. Because she is illegal and Hispanic her civil liberties are worth nothing. I guess this is one way to stop illegal immigration, steal their children.

One rule never trust any cps worker, do not spend time trying to defend yourself, they are the enemy and they did not give a damn about your children. A victim myself had my son kidnapped at birth over a c-section which I had accused of refusing the c-section. Call them liers and use the same intimations. They will rape and kill your kids without regret, my cousins 21 month old daughter was burned to death in her play pen while in their care and they still have her twin till this day a mia or pow. I got my son back and ran. I moved every year till he turned 18, thet are a nightmare.

CPS was called on my husband and I by the Baptist church across the street from our home. We don't attend church, the only family in our new neighborhood who doesn't attend the neighborhood Baptist church. We know it was them as we have no other close neighbors but the preacher's home and the church itself. Someone called and said I was leaving in the middle of the night leaving my children unattended and giving them alcohol. They even told CPS what kind of beer we were giving the kids. Well, I was leaving alone late at nights as it was December and I could shop the toy section of the 24 dept. store alone. And, the minister saw my husband working on the mower with that brand of beer but none EVER for the kids. One anonymous call, the kid's school was notified, our home searched and we were all interviewed. The man even told me if he came back, I better not have a dog in my house and my home is very clean dog included. I should go to church too and avoid such problems. Our name is dirt. I know CPS has a tough job but they are used to abuse people and should keep religion out of it. They didn't get my kids but I've never felt safe again.

Great article.
Cps took my newborn baby girl at birth right out of the hospital without warning or anything. My mother, who hated the idea of me having a baby and being unmarried, called CPS along with my psychiatrist brother, Richard E. Repass. They made false claims that I was "mentally ill" MY brother told CPS I had "narcissistic personalisty disorder" and my mother gave them a different diagnosis that I was "scizofrenic." Cps believed their lies, or wanted to, so they could collect federal funding and they put my baby in a foster home for 5 and a half mos. where she suffered severe sexual abuse by an 8 year old boy and she also suffered from failure to thrive. I was able to get her back because social services' own psychiatric report stated that I "had no major mental illness" and another agency stepped in because my daughter had a failure to thrive and forced cps to give her back to me. That agency was the COmmunity infant project. I was able to get a settlement out of the County this happened in, and sued the foster home and got a small settlement. I am angry to this day, but especially my brother, a psychiatrist, working to this day in Hutchinson, Minnesota, his name is Richard E. Repass. He has never apologized for the damages done to his niece by his actions. He is pure evil. CPS is evil and does take children away for monetary gain through federal funding but the people that call CPS are evil as well. In this case, my brother Richard E. Repass.

CFS as thier now called here in San Bernardino just recently took my kids. I just found out that the social worker who got the court order was the one who made the allegations of sexual abuse because she tried to hide it from my new social worker. She took my kids because i told my mother she couldnt see my kids so she got my brothers boyfriend and my own cousin to call cps on me. All because me an my fiance argue and fight but guess what we do it in another room behind closed doors. Now im a supposed drug abuser with mental issues. And now that they basically had a rape kit done on my seven year old daughter and found nothing thier still fishing for information. Im going to sue cfs big time for this and if i dont get my kids back on the eighteenth im taking this to a higher court because its BS. All i have to say to the good mothers and fathers out there is fight and keep fighting!

The cps pigs don't need to be jailed, NO, they should be tried for the crime of MURDER. You see, to forcibly rip apart a family is just like killing a living being or entity. This is because a family as a whole fits the definition of a conscious living organism. ERGO 1).A family autonomously declares its own creation. 2).It has its own collective immune defense system that allows it to ward off and defend itself against outside attack, and then to repair and heal itself afterward and to even refine glitches within its own body politic to solidify family loyalty and further fortify itself from learned enemies. 3).It develops and grows in stages and is self-aware, with the mature family becoming independent and needing NO external governance, with the family assembly more resembling a micro nation-state, if you will. 4).Its distinct heartbeat is detected in the 'what shall WE do' motive force mapping the family's course of direction during its times of togetherness. - - Gee, I'd say that fits the definition of a living being, true? So to all of you PETTY LOCAL TYRANTS AND CPS BUREAUCRATS - YOU HEAR ME NOW ! ! KEEP YOUR FILTHY SOCIALIST HANDS OFF OUR CHILDREN ! IS THAT CLEAR? Whether you are directly esponsible for butchering one family or a thousand, or whether you merely held the theater ropes, YOU ARE ALL CULPABLE. You all have blood on your hands. We the people WILL DELIVER JUSTICE. Yes indeed, the nuclear family is greater than the individual. Greater than its sums in fact. To dismember a family is thus a greater crime than the murder of a mere individual. We THE PEOPLE must cry out 'TRY THEM FOR MURDER' - 'TRY THEM FOR MURDER' - 'TRY THEM FOR MURDER'. May the message ring across our land, from sea to shining sea, that the murderers BE GONE and that THE ALMIGHTY FAMILY LIVES ! !

Jay said...

The sad thing is, while DOCS (the Aussie CPS) steal much loved children from families based on false accusations (even when they have conclusive proof that the allegations were false) they still steal the children.

While those of those who are going through family court with a violent, narcisstic convicted child abuser, cannot even get DOCS to look into the abuse their child is reporting. Even sexual abuse reported to independent third parties is not investigated. Just told "it's a matter for the family cour to investigate" who in turn say "no, it's up to DOCS to investigate.

constantly passing the buck back and forth while children are bashed, raped and some even murdered.

When a child is murdered, they use the excuses of "we don't have enough funding and staff to investigate every complaint" yet thousands of children are stolen from loving homes, and when (IF) the children are finally returned then DOCS workers visit for a couple of hours, a couple of times a week for months or years.

So to turn around and say they don't have a work to send out for a maximum of an hour to investigate a child who has been molested where the father is a convicted repeat offender for assault and drug use, living with a diagnosed sociopath whose own child was removed for sickening violence against the poor child...

It's total utter BS. My daughter deserved better. She is only alive today because her father chose to stop seeing her because his diagnosed psychopathic mistress was jealous of the few hours he saw her each week.

DOCS wouldn't lift a finger to protect my daughter - but they had no problem stealing children from two of my friends who are happily married, and they are loving mums, and their husbands loving dad/stepdad. DOCS took months after the allegations were proven to have been made falsely before their children were returned, in one case the relative who made the false allegations was given temporary custody, filling the child's head with lies about how much his mother didn't want him etc.

Both kids are back with their parents now, but they are emotionally scarred even now, years later.

Yes there are some good social workers (they aren't all bad) but the good ones are few and far between.

And for the volunteer... Abusers aren't stupid. In organisations where there are abusers, the abusers don't show their true colours to volunteers. They wait til they are completely sure that you support their abuse before they show their true nature. It's no different from paedophile teachers and priests - most people think these men are wonderful until they see their true nature. That is the nature of abuse.

I see the same thing happening in hospitals (I'm a nurse). As a student, abusive doctors and nurses hid their true colours - their true nature only comes out when they think you either support them or that they can victimise you. I've been a victim of horrific abuse at the hands of a doctor and a nurse while a patient - they thought I'd be the perfect victim and wouldn't speak out. They were wrong. But abusers rarely get it wrong - they target families who they think make good victims. They only show their true nature to their supporters and their victims.

Be glad anonymous, that you got paried with a good caseworker. They are few and far between.

Yes there are terrible abusers - my ex husband is a psychotic, drug addict and the mistress that became wife number 2, is a genuine sociopath who abuses children terribly. DOCS would not do a thing to protect my daughter from these monsters.

Yes children need protecting from genuine abusers, but working in healthcare (and seeing the fallout) I can guarantee - where there is real, serious abuse, DOCS does nothing. Where there are false allegations and good parenting, DOCS steals the children.

to the obvious cps worker that commented that you have to investigate and the problem is that the child lied to get cps involvement, let me enlighten you. you are as an agency, the most corrupt, immorral, lying, manipulating, unconstitutional agency ever put into existence. i know this because after your agency put my family through your "services" three of the people that worked/contracted with you found their morals and ratted you out. the first of which was the original investigator who stated that they knowingly built their case on lies. the second a cps contracted psycologist who stated i did nothing wrong and then told me how to present the information to the judge. the third was the licensed counselor who was cps contracted pulled me into her office looked around to make sure noone in the cps office could hear her, closed the door and informed me that the information she was about to give me could cost her a very lucrative contract with cps but she could not look the other way any longer because of the mental trauma cps was causing my children. the information that was passed to me, i passed to my attorney who knew just the right way to ask the social worker in front of the judge a very important question. the result: CPS HAD TO ADMIT TO THE JUDGE THEY WERE LYING FROM THE BEGINNING. THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS! CPS CAUGHT IN COURT LYING. and they recieved no punishment. so much for your theory that cps protects children.

I am so sorry our justice system and all that is corrupt. It shouldnt be but just like with everything it all boils down to money. I have never liked anything govt. This is exactly why. I am and have been a low income family. My childrens father and I arre not married but we have been together for 12 years. My mother is a god freak. Now please dont go all crazy on me for my choice of words but i believe their is a difference in believing in god and being a follower and being brain washed by your church to the point you dont even acknowledge free will anymore. Which is what she is. My daughter has come home talking about it doesnt matter what she does god will protect her. She almost stuck her finger in an outlet socket she broke off by her bed and when i saw that i explained to her that it could kill her, and her answer to me was no it wont god will protect me grandma says so. She doesnt ever take my son unless i throw it in her face that shes plays favortisim. I have gotten to a point where I do not want my kids around her at all. So i have decided to keep them from going to her room. See right now me and my family are stuck living in a hotel room until we can pay off an eviction that happened due to my fiance being laid off after signing a new apartment lease. Well my mother also has a room here with my brother. She is constantly calling me trying to get me to get her food. Which its tight enough with a family of 4 without adding 2 more mouths. She doesnt have any money because she goes shopping for crap she doesnt need. Now she knows that i plan on not letting her keep my kids overnight or see them anymore and shes out to get me however she can. She has already told me she will call whoever she has to in order to keep me from keeping the kids from her. My mother has mental issues although she has never been diagnosed with anything she clearly has issues and anyone who meets her and sees how she acts when she doesnt get her way has said the same thing. I do not want to deal with CPS because I know I will go to jail because the minute they try to touch my kids I will hurt them. NOONE will take my kids from me. I as the parent have every right to decide I dont want anymore of my mothers influence on my kids, mostly my daughter luckily she hasnt been around my son enough to influence him about anything. I already know she plans on telling them I do drugs and dont keep house well. I swear I might end up in jail for killing her should things go down like I fear. I cant stand her which is sad as she is my mother. What can I do to beat her basically,like let someone know she is threatening to lie about me and my fiance and our character?

A former Polk County detention deputy was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison, followed by 20 years of sex-offender probation, for spanking two naked girls and transmitting video of the abuse to her online boyfriend in Australia, theledger.com is reporting.

Robin Pagoria, 47, pleaded no contest to two counts of aggravated child abuse by torture/malicious punishment, two counts of using a child in a sexual performance and two counts of lewd or lascivious battery, for the acts committed at her home in Auburndale, according to the website.

She resigned after her arrest in May 2011.

Hey I have a case in San Bernardino too. My whole case was based on lies from a family member and I complied and did their stupid case plan. They still terminated my rights because I spoke out publicly against them and nothing more! I personally know of about over a hundred cases that got closed and children reunified even though the parents tested dirty,had no home, or did partial case plans. I was told that the only way to secure your reunification regardless of what your accused of or have done is to kiss ass to the social worker! I wouldn't do that so I lost my children. If I could give advice to anyone I would say do exactly that if you can morally. I refused to lie and agree with their allegations because as a Christian I just could not do it. It's a hard decision that only you can make. I personally think these social workers don't have a soul and enjoy taking children because their own lives are out of control so they get power hungry and money hungry. San Bernardino has corrupt judges that side with every worker and don't make any judgements using their own brains. May God forgive me for my bitterness but NO ONE should have a child ripped away from them and these people who post about how Cps does good for the children I hope they too someday get a case and lose their children. Funny how NO SOCIAL WORKERS EVER LOSE THEIR CHILDREN , RIGHT? They have lives just like us and get away with murder. God will prevail and their judgement day will come.

This is horrible
I know
It is happening to me.
Bad social worker. Power hungry and she was manipulated by my exhusband.... wouldn't contested custody/divorce raise red flags? Not to this woman....but now she has disappeared thank God. but left her 'notes' and mess behind... and still DCF wants to give the girls to him (he is their 'foster' parent) DCF is unstoppable.... they are evil... I am not afraid to name names.... the case workers name was Amy Miller DCF plymouth MA.

Thanks for writing this... I survived having my newborn girl taken from my breast by CPS... My story is horrifying to any loving mother or father... My baby girl was taken for a no good reason and I still after five and a half years have PTSD... We got her back after 9 months, but all that important bonding time was lost.. WE got to see her one hour a week!!! While she was in care she went to the emergency room because she had an alergic reaction to her immunizations that we told them we didn't want her to have, at-least until she was five and her immune system could handle such an invasion. Well we didn't here about her ER visit till four days later at our visit.. I was outraged to say the least. My step daughter contacted autism after her 18 month shot and that was another reason we did not want her immunized, and they knew this.. What they did to us is criminal, and I know they make the same mistakes all the time and take kids who don't have any business being in state care.. No child comes out of state care unscathed, even if the foster parents are good people, the children still want their real families and feel neglected and become emotionally scarred... This can't go on for much longer, something must be done..

And for that volunteer worker.. It's been years and you probably won't read this, but why if you thought "all CPS did was take children away from families" why would you want to work for such an organization??!!?? It's takes a hardened person and many times a mentally sick person to take children away from their families!! People with power trips take kids away from loving families when there has been no evidence of abuse.. And there is a big money incentive to take kids, maybe not for you because you volunteered, but for everyone else under the CPS umbrella there are bucks to be made and quotas to be filled. Our kids might be dollar signs to CPS workers, but our kids are priceless to us.. CPS is destroying innocent souls for monetary gain.. Now I know there are reasons for CPS to be in business, but they have to get a better screening process for both taking children and who they let become foster parents.. These people need hardcore psych evaluations, lie detector test, background checks and an open door policy to check on kids anytime 24 hours a day.. And this still won't be enough, child molesters and abusers will slip through the cracks, that's why we must listen to every child in foster care and if they say abuse has happened then remove that child, don't give foster parents the benefit of the doubt, because 97% of the time they're in it for the money and don't give a damn about the precious life they have in their grimy greedy hands..... Okay, I'm ranting I'd better go... May God bless all the innocent parents who've had the misfortune of having to deal with CPS.. And most of all God bless the children who go into CPS custody mentally sound and very happy and come out traumatized and scarred for life...............

i am a retired DoD special Agent, the top of the law enforcement ladder a neighbor called on my now ex wife and i in florida,they saw our daughter "playing" with herself in her bedroom, which was on the second floor with no view of ANY homes, that's why we gave her the room, for privacy for a 8 year old girl, yet that did not matter

it turned into a nightmare, see most if not all DHS workers enjoy sovereign immunity, which means when you let them into your home they can do what they want, include exert moral and legal superiority

i finally got to the point, i almost resigned, and they were threatening molestation charges, and more, until i contacted an attorney in NYC that specialized in these cases, amazingly in a week it was over, but not after casting a shadow on my character in the DoD

my best advice NEVER EVER let DhS into your home without a warrant, they will do anything and everything to "save" the child for everyone but themselves, the county or the state

I read your story. I am in the process of becoming a foster parent. I'm trying to see both sides of the fence. I am shocked that your eldest daughter did that to you. She is either a sociopath or she's telling the truth. You have to be pretty evil to destroy your family for spite, or attention. No loving person could do that.

On the other hand if abuse took place maybe your in denial. One of my friends was raped by her father and her family dishoned her when she testified against him. Her siblings said she was a liar, her mother returned everything she ever gave her and cursed her name. You have no idea what my friend went through. She was singled out and abused. None of the other siblings knew anything about it or the mother.
So like I said either your daughter is evil or something happened....

CPS is the biggest crock of crap there is. I personally have not had a case against me. Back in February of 2013 my friends daughters were taken from her by CPS on allegations of drug use and domestic violence. She had tried to seek help for the domestic violence for approximately a month before cps got invoked. Everyone including the police turned her away. She submitted a drug test which she told them she had take half an Adorall(?). She failed the test. About a week later they did a hair follicle test and she passed it. She has been given 8 test since then and all have been negative. They placed her children in separate homes but both have been place with family. One of the girls is in a home with her father who has never cared for her. He was caught taking her to a bar (she is only 13) and he got drunk and drove her home and tried to choke her. She is very close with me and my daughter and she tells me everything. I had the police sent there and she told them she wad fine. She said she lied because she was scared of her dad. We have tried to get her out of his home and place with her sister but cps just won't let it happen. There is lots more I can say. Does anyone have advice or someone my friend can talk to and get help to get her kids back?

"it did happen to me". Just had my three kids taken from me for my neighbor abusing my daughter. in this case it was the GAL that was corroupt, not DSS.... if you want my option, don't trust anyone.... going back now after spending almost $8,000 on lawyer fees to appeal. I've had my kids since the divorce (8 years), I did everything right! It happened to me and it can happen to you too!

I have 3 beautiful daughters one 17, 15, and 13 soon. My 17 yr old is in the Navy in fact. We had a visit from cps and they made me choose my husband or kids and made me file an EPO against him. Well before he could get served he checked in at a mental hospital and has been diagnosed with Bipolar. My thoughts was OMG WHAT ??? Well he has stayed away from me and the kids and cps shows up at my house and ask to see the inside of my home and check to see if he was here. I allowed them in and said sure I have nothing to hide. She finds noone here but me and one of my daughters. Now tell me why she is wanting me to do a piss test for drugs and they are tryin to get me for neglect on my children??? I have nothing to do with my husband not being found and im being punished?? How? and Why? because i ticked them off because he was not in the home like she hoped he would be? I cant trust them she has lied 3 times to me already I talked to his mental hospital social worker they knew he had court and she tells me they say they had no ideal.. WHATEVER

CPS doesn't want to help parents or families. No matter what they say, their goal is not reunification. They get PAID to get your kids adopted to someone else.

As I read all these stories they bring sadness and relief. My name is Allie. My husband and I live in Rochester Vermont. 3 years ago our the loss of my babies began. We are not bad parents and love our children and would stand in front of a car for them if thats what had to be done. My mother has my 3 children and not by choice I was bullied by the courts and manipulated by my mother. All it took was a bunch of lies and allegations from my mother. We cant afford any lawyers because they want atleaast four grand to even look at our case. no luck with pro-Bono. DCF backed out after a year saying the kids were safe. the truth is they are not. About a year ago my mother made an outrageous allegation and all communication and visitations have been stopped. My mother only has guardianship but with the state giving the kids a lawyer and my mother managed to surface with one as well. we had no chance. They did an investigation and found nothing but for no sense that I can come up with the judge stopped everything. we hadnt seen our kids in a year until a few days ago we ran into them in the store they ran up to us I couldnt help but to cry, hold them as close as I could, and smell them. I asked my 8 year old daughter if she was scared and she said no mommy I have been so worried about you and daddy. then my youngest son 4 years old said daddy you an mommy been in jail?? We reassured all of them that we have done everything we can to be with them and no we were not in jail but working and getting better. As we brought them to the parking lot my mother started yelling 2 years of f**king therapy down the drain. look at my car its falling apart because you 2 cant get you s**t together. Mind you our kids heard this all. We went to buckle them in and I could see tears forming in their precious eyes. We hugged them and kissed them and told them to be brave and that we are figuring things out. they looked scared and I dont blame them. My mother was very mentally and physically abusive to me and still tries to be. she told the courts the kids didnt want to see us that they were afraid of us. Our middle boy has been acting out and he failed kindergarten but instead of normally adding this up to they are struggling because they worry and miss us. they need us as much as we need them. My step father spanks my children and I was just recently told that he picks on my boys because they are not circumcised. I could go on and on but because my husnad and I struggled a little with alcohol and some minor drug use everyone treats like we dont matter or exist. we have done everything the courts have asked and still here we are trying everything and anything to get our story out. I have hope and I will never give up. one thought I have is why dont we all come together and help not only our children but other children. notify Dr.Phil, legislators, the president anything,something. thanks for reading and I am happy to see other people reaching out this is and epidemic that can continue to spread. ~~Allie~~

I'm going through something like this now, thankfully not quite as heinous. My ex-husband made false allegations in order to get custody of my son who is only 4 years old. I expect to get TPRed at some point even though I work in law enforcement with no criminal history. I never thought something like this could happen to someone like me!

Hi my name is Shaun, Me and my poor wife have been going through hell for the last couple of years thanks to out lovely dcf program! to make a long story short Me and my wife broke up for a year and she had a kid with this kid Dave and he was psycho, I mean he raped my wife in front of my oldest son and I helped her get away from this scumbag, well she when to a women shelter with my kids to get away from him and he has a sister who works for DCF and is a foster mother well he called DCF on her and they made up lies to take the kids which I thought ok we did nothing wrong they won't do nothing WRONG! Well my wife had surgery on her tailbone which is really painful and she got pain meds for it, well DCF tried to say she got 600 pain pills in less than 6 weeks which is impossible no doctor would write that much as well as masshealth won't cover that much!! so they came took my kids and the kid she had with that kid who called, well again to make a long story short the baby girl they had together ended up in his sister's care because she is a foster parent and she quit DCF just so she can get her, I mean it’s got personal written all over it but some reason the court went in DCF's favor not ours!! When the report on us is just insane! and they somehow got our rights taken away trying to say we abuse drugs, now I'll be honest we used to have a drug problem after they took the kids because we were so upset they were gone and that we couldn't win to get em back this whole thing ripped our family apart!! We never used anything when we had our kids and they were spoiled and had a great life and now they have emotional problems from being taken away they messed our poor kids up and this is the most helpless feeling I ever had! I can't protect em or take their pain away and its killing me and all because it’s a personal case where a kid that raped my wife in front my oldest son which my son told em he did called DCF to get his daughter which he blamed the baby for her leaving him so when the baby was in his sister's care he grabbed the poor baby and shook her and threw her at the wall which now the poor baby has brain damage and can barely walk and do things breaks my heart! but he called to do all that and his family worked for DCF so we lost our whole life because of this and the area I live in seems so crooked that I can't get anywhere I can't believe the courts always go on DCF's side, I mean they caught the worker making false drug tests and everything no way we should of lost our rights and I don't know what to do, can someone please help me!

Please someone help me I don't know what to do! And also we went to Boston and told em about this and they talked to the dcf worker and believe her for some reason! Seriously please help me!

I realize that this post is several years old but I need to get this off of my chest.
I am currently 44 years old but what happened to me and 2 of my children happened 26 years ago.

I was booted out of foster care at 18 with a handicapped 16 month old and a 6 week old. I had no where to go except a shelter they had found for us. I was told by the group home that the shelter would provide the prescription formula that my 16 month old needed to survive because of multiple severe food allergies. This lasted a week and I was told I had to wean him off of the formula which the doctor said he needed. Alone, with no experience, with no where else to go, and not knowing where to go for help, I called my case worker who I had trusted all those years while in the system. I asked her if I could place them in TEMPORARY foster care and she had me sign the paperwork. Little did I know that they would be assigned a different caseworker who battled me for 2 years. I ended up losing them both and they were adopted out. A year in a half ago the youngest of the two contacted me. I learned that they had not been placed together and we both learned from his adoptive mother that his elder brother had killed himself while being held in a youth detention facility in California that punished the kids by putting them in cages. In one day I found one son and learned of the death of another. I was in a very dark place for several weeks. I had to send my youngest daughter to my mothers house for a while because I could not function from the grief. The pain in my soul was so unbearable... To know that this woman basically sold my children because of whatever chip she had on her shoulder left me angry and depressed. Still after all this time her actions affect me in a way that I would not wish for another human being. My children were sold in my opinion. There were other family members willing, able (Physically, emotionally, and financially) to take them but she refused. As a result, one of my sons is now dead. Our imaginations can be a dark thing and for me that darkness was imagining him wrapping that sheet around his neck and believing no one cared about him. Even now the pain rips at me when I think about it and my body shakes. I don't know what or if there is anything I can do about it. But I go on, one day at a time and pray that he is in a place of no suffering and knows how very much I love him. As for the state of California, I will never go back there to live as long as I have minor children in my care.

To Anonymous about taking a lie detector test.. I took one and passed it but did that matter? No! It did not set me or my children free. My story is somewhat similar to the original authors, I haven'y seen my babies in 18 yrs! Now my kids are old enough to learn the truth, they don't want to hear it. They have been so brainwashed into believing what DHS and the courts put on paper... they think that's the truth! DHS is destroying families by the millions across the world, these children are all of our futures, but what kind of future are any of us going to have with all these children being destroyed by the system?? DHS should not have the power to play judge, jury and executioner! We all need to wake up, stand together and demand this to stop.. Enough is Enough!!!

"The agency gains nothing from taking the children away from their parents and I am sorry that there are people that feel that way."

I'm sorry - but that's an outright lie. My 2 oldest were stolen from me because my half-sister called them and lied that I'd abandoned them and nobody knew where I was. She had agreed to take them for a couple weeks while I was looking for new housing and knew exactly where I was and I'd been in constant contact with her. My youngest was stolen from me by a 3rd party CPS agency after DCFS worker had already said the allegations were false but had turned it over to another agency to help me financially because I was struggling to make ends meet. Instead of helping they lied to the judge and seized my son - then intentionally did not pick me up for court like they were supposed to so that they could terminate my rights without my presence and put him up for adoption.

It's very sad when you know you have Donne anything wrong to your child and somebody is trying to take him way because the power they may have. I my self went to an emergency home in Boston and my son which was 14yo was cold and he was complain about the freezer place and I took my jone I give to him and I put my clothes on and he was so warm near me and those crew from a emergence room made a anonymous phone call to CPS and they come and took my kid way just for being warm on is dad. They have accusing me for child molested and they evaluated my kid even on his anus to see if he was really been molested by is own father. What a trauma they put my kid to go true? I was despaired and hope less and I think they the one that was abusing of my child with no respect for him. Thanks god my son was a big kid and he spook to his self and they had no chance to take him way from me. I WILL AlWAYS LOVE MY CHILD.

My name is joy and I base in USA...“My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called High Priest ADODO which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 7 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped High Priest ADODO 's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 3 days, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. High Priest ADODO is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try High Priest ADODO anytime, he might be the answer to your problems. Here's his contact:{adodospelltemple@gmail.com}.

My name is Nomsa Ranganai from London and I’m here to let you know that with what people say, it may seem impossible, but with what you believe, nothing is impossible. I made a promise to Dr. okoko and to myself that when he restored my marriage, I would testify and tell the world, I would share every single detail no matter how shameful and embarrassing it would be, in the hope and knowledge that I would someday be able to bring some kind of hope for a hurting wife or husband who would’ve been going through what I once was. I don’t want to apportion blame too much here but suffice it to say we had some in-law issues which contributed greatly to our demise before I contacted Dr. okoko from a post I read on a blog. Dr. okoko showed up in the mist of my situation and calmed every storm, he brought peace to everybody. We are all happy and eat together in the same table today. God bless you Dr. okoko . Please contact him immediately for help via: okokospellcaster@gmail.com

What is wrong with everyone ???? We all have our own stories to tell about how our children or grandchildren were taken away from us for no real reason at all.... I am a very loving grandmother who had three of my beautiful little grandchildren taken away from my daughter because of one accident....that could have happened to anyone.
I suggest to the none believers of this horrific situation....to do your home work, on this matter before you reply with its all B..L...SH.T. It's people who say things like that...that have know real reasoning, compassion, empathy for anyone but themselves....because to them, they believe it would never happen to them because they are better than everyone else. How sad to have such a very small and closed mind, to the real facts in life.
Before the story broke about this Pedafile ring a few weeks ago....I can guarantee that if someone told you that this was happening with, police officers, judges, social workers, priests, teachers, carers, etc, you wouldn't have believed that either......
And we are talking about people that have a roll in protecting our children....we....tell them that it ok to trust these people...because that is what society tells us to do and how many children were harmed by these so called people that have jobs that should be protecting our children....not abusing them and treating them worse than animals ?
Oh yes....to you... you may think what you like....because we as parents and grandparents know the truth...you see... we are living this nightmare..and how can millions of women all over the world suffering the same fate as one another...be WRONG.....and you right ?????

I agree. Sometimes they take kids who purely have no signs of abuse, put them in their system, and the children suffer far more in their care and have a lifetime of traumatization over it. Along with parents after some that get their kids back forever fearing cps can take them again any time. And often times they take the kids under false stories. Someone has to lie and take the blame and both parents are forced to accept the blame true or not and submit to whatever they are told to do in order to get the kids back. Often at least one year. And then the parents have to pay the foster care back. They took my babies when they were four months and three years old and I did what I was told. Got them back one year later. One visit my daughter's face was all scratched up from another child attacking her in their care. Nightmare! They were afraid of the dark and being left alone for even a minute. Then the years that followed cps kept on my tail investigating me every so often. Yet my kids were healthy and did well for years in my care. Recsently my daughter has become a rebellious teen. I was doing everything I could to get her on the right course. Trying to use correct parenting skills they taught me as always. Never hit my children. I got Counselling for her and myself. She quit hers. Every time I tried to say she was grounded she would throw a ballistic fit. She would threaten to report me to cps. Well she is 16 and two months pregnant now. I tried to fround her and she began hitting me. Then when I tried to stop her by holding her arm and trying to walk her back to her room telling her to calm down or she may hurt her baby while she was hitting me. Then she said her belly hurt. She called the police and told cps pushed on her belly sat on her and squashed her belly. Cps took her away and four days later took my younger boy away. They never take one child. They take em all sayn the others are at risk. My daughter admitted as partially a lie in what she said sayn I didn't sit on her and squash her belly. But cps went on to say oh but look at tour parents history. They pointed out that I have PTSD. (Raped in the service). And are trying to prove a billion other reasons why they can't return my kids to me. Such a nihhtmare. And having being this is the second time I know you can't fight them no matter truths lies whatever. I will do everything they tell me to get them back or they won't give them back. But I know this will traumatize my younger child so horribly. My daughter is just trying to het them to let her move in w her boyfriends family. So selfish not to consider her brother. I can only pray and do my best to get them back. But this is horrible. I wish someone could make them come up with a more thorough and fair system. And make a safer and comfortable place for the kids and allow more parent contact when not finding any actual physical abuse. My son has straight As and was happy with me. This is horrible and he left in tears and I in tears. Just as I cried every night the first time I will again now. Because I know my babies are sufferring. I can forgive my daughter, because I love her. I hate to know my kids are out there with them crying scared sufferring. I know this because my daughter is allowed to call my Mom. And my Mom tells my she calls crying and telling her how horrible it is where she is. My poor babies! How can they do this to people? I hope I get my kids back soon. Its sad they have to spend Christmas in their crazy assessment homes and foster homes. It makes me sick. And my sweet loving boy will not get his 14th bday at chuck e cheese like he wanted. Has to spend it without family. Oh my Lord how can you let this happen again? I SURE HOPE THEY REALIZE MY DAUGHTER LIED AND JUST NEEDS TO LEARN THATS WRONG and that they return my babies soon before they do far more damage in their system.

Today I spoke with my daughter. They are in foster care together since friday. She's the 16 year old. She says my son isn't sleeping nor eating right there. He is special ed and needs more attention than most kids. This is a nightmare. I'm gonna complain about this in the intake hearing tomorrow. I hope to God they return my babirs home. The hospital found no abuse nor neglect signs. My daughter admit I didnt sit on her nor her pregnant belly. So why do they have to be there especially for Christmas and my son's 14th birthday? This is so horrible.

I read you'r blog mostly in shock, near tears, and at the same time understanding. In 2007 a set of events began that have sent my life and my two oldest childrens lives into a tail spin that we still have not been able to recover from or correct. I will try to keep this short and to the point as it is confusing. On feb 6th 2007 my son was borne 6 weeks permature. He was in the NICU for over a month. After his realeace we had to say below a certan elevation because even with oxygen he could not breath. We spent close to two months at my mothers home. By the time we finaly went home I knew something was wrong. Within a month I had discovered what myself the doctors, and psychologists could only explane as sexual assault. This new sent me spiraling into a case of postpartum depression that scared me to death, and i therefor saught medical help. After my realeace maybe a six months my children where handed to CPS my my own father. Even tho he handed them over they took and made allegations against me of drug use, neglect, lying about the sexual abuse which I had many documents on, and even made a complaint to the police. The body of proof never seen a court room. There was never a drug screen done on me during this case. I was willing to do the drug screen, hair focal testing ( they never did ether), took the same parenting class twice once alone and once with my father and kids. In Jan of 2009 my father was grated full custody of my older children. In March 2009 my youngest daughter was borne. As a result of the case worker from the case which was closed in January made a false report against myself and my youngest child's father. Needles to say CPS came the day of our release and took her. Leaving us for five days without our new borne baby. fortunately we found a rare worker who truly cared. She found the allegations to be unfounded, and found the case which closed in January 2009 to also be unfounded. My youngest still resides with us, and my older children are with my father who will refuse to allow any contact for months on end. I understand you'r pain as I feel it each day. You never really recover, and there is often no real resolution. I have tried to reach out to the news, friends, family, CPS, and a number of other avenues yet I am still without my older two children. It makes being a mother hard when you are graving for children who have been taken from you in such a way.

I am truly sanded to know my family is not the only one suffering such a way

My family has been destroyed by cps in ny state.In 2004 my children were abducted by cps false reports phoned in anonymously because ppl are mad at you not really thinking your kids are abused or negelcted just because they know thats how they can hurt you the most. my 2yr old was molested and got genital warts my sons leg was broken my oldest daughters noe broken.My sweet babies were filthy wearing stained smelly clothes at every visit i would bathe them and hold them and complain to the hillside workers that my kids looked horrible and that i always took care of them.It was heart wrenching i love my babies .eventually a year later they put my kids in another foster home saying it was due to my concerns about their hygene .In this home everything seemed ok even though all i want is my kids to be home. on sept.16,2013 i was allowed by their adopted mom (aka the second foster mom ) to have them for weekends and holidays it was the best day of my life except the days the were born. Everything was going great until my kids start telling how the adopted father was beating them on a regular basis . on jan 18,2014 my 15yr old daughter got dropped off and she was screaming sayin mike punched me in the ribs so i take pics and she starts having trouble breathing so i call an ambulance and we go to hospital where of course cps gets called and i have to tell them what happened . they determine that my kids will be safe with me considering i called the ambulance. i speak with cps they tell me that my kids will be safe at my house i am so happy as are they all we have wanted was to be together again as a family so then on jan24,2014 they take my kids to the child advocacy center (a joke) and when they come back they tell me we gotta take your kidswe cant be sure they are safe here with you wtf they were always safe with me the almost ten yrs in ny state custody the were molested beat verbally abused they keep sayin my kids are disposable wtf my kids are not disposable someone plz help me if you can i need my children they need me

I need help my kids were taken with lies and its killing me and my kids. My oldest is in therapy because cps ripped her out of the only home she has ever had and is now not the same girl. None of my kids are. And my youngest was only two months old who is now 9ms and Donno her 4 sisters and barely knows me. It ain't right on what they do to families and I hate them. I never abused my children I would die for them.

A special petition is developed in order to help the families whose children have been taken away due to falsified accusation by the SPC (Child Protective Services) employees. As more and more families become victims of false accusations against them, we believe that such a petition is necessary in order bring justice in the country. In order to have working material, social service employees need more children to show the government that they need money. Following that goal, they falsify the accusations and take children from normal families. This may happen to any family. The petition will require the corrections in the law so that families and their children can be protected from the crime committed by social service employees.

I just wanted to say that sadly, I agree with all of this. I watched my best friend loose her three kids and couldn't do anything to help her. None of us could, and when we told CPS we'd adopt her children so she could still see them constantly, they told us WE weren't good enough. They tried to make some claims like we had to have some huge house just to fit her three kids.

People please, there are tribes out there healthily paid, that have ten people to a living room and that's okay. What just because we're white, and under 30 we can't keep them? People please.

What's worse is they tried to call her "mentally unfit" with almost no evidence other than finding out the mother had been raped by one of the children's fathers, who was thrown out of the house well before CPS even got there. I know, I was there. CPS promised the mom, who was a stay-at-home with 3 children and a working husband(not the ex but another man who took care of all those babies even though only one was his), that if she fought for the kids, she'd have them back in months.

Several months went by and CPS kept changing their tune. Interviewing all of us, though none of us spoke ill of the mother because she is a great person. We all loved her. And we all know that the ANON's that reported, were trouble-makers. One of them was jealous because her "boyfriend" (who left her later go figure), wanted to be with the mother of the 3 kids (and she told him hell no and to get out of her house). Drama started this.

I am in the same exact situation as you, looking for other's out there that have experienced the same nightmare of CPS workers coming in our home and kidnapping our grandbabies.

I did some research as I have been for the last few months and I have found that 43 babies and children died alone in 2013, due to this Illegal removal of children from their loving homes, and they all range from the ages of 3 months to 7 years old. They completely tore these families apart, and in the end these poor families suffered a major loss, they will never be able to see, hear, hold, and hug their children again. That is something no parent should ever have to face and do, is bury their own babies and children. Its the other way around, children are suppose to outlive and bury their parents. But loosing a child is far more devastating, hurtful and scarring, then loosing a parent. These are poor innocent children that never had a chance to grow up and become someone because that right was taken away from them the moment that Social Services/Child Protective services stepped foot into their home and illegally removed these children from innocent families. Shouldn't they be facing murder charges? I think they should, along with kidnapping and other criminal charges that rage from conspiracy to capital murder. Why should these people be free to walk and continue with their families while everyone else's families are being torn apart and in lot's of cases beyond that, due to the fact of these innocent children dying at the hands of what suppose to be for the protection of children. I am one family that's suing and know there are other families out there. I am getting together a class action lawsuit against them as well, but it all starts with finding people in the same situation and signing petitions. Help us keep our children safe because truth is, until this happens none of us are, especially them, and our children and families are continuing to fall prey to these predators. Let's put an end to this crime, punishment, and injustice. Please contact me @ Destinee_Angel@live.com so we can begin to make a difference and this world a better and safer place for our children.

I believe you and your story. CPS and the youth services police form an initial opinion about you and then they only see you through that distorted lens. The question now is - what can we do about it? How can this system be changed? It is not just about the children coming home - the system is wrong. CPS, police and the school system have too much unchecked power. They can destroy your life and your family on personal opinion, misinterpretation of data or of what someone said or did, false accusations, etc. The state should not be able to do anything without absolute proof of severe abuse or harm. Secret, anonymous informants (like living under Stalin or living in Orwell's 1984), always believing children and villainizing parents (like the Salem witch trials), no way of parents being able to defend themselves, irrational fears, beliefs and ideologies over statistics, facts or proof, always guilty until proven innocent (when it comes to children), destruction of families, destruction of reputation and careers (just so they can be right). This is not a free America. Something must be done. The problem is that people who have not experienced it do not believe the horror stories or do not believe it will happen to them and think CPS is good. They do some good things, but because they cause SO much harm they all need to be strongly regulated. Something must be done. I wish someone would make a documentary to shine a light on what is really going on.

No CPS did because they didn't investigate properly. If there was no evidence the case shouldn't have gone as far as it did. The CPS went by hear say which is not a proper way to investigate.

Hennepin County CPS took my 14 year old daughter because I doubted her story. My 14 year old was having some behavior problems and running away from home. She ran away while on probation and made up a story of abuse not against me but someone else. She was taken from me because I said I didn't know if here story was true or not but I doubted it because I was monitoring her accounts at the time and she never told her friends. I know my daughter well and she always chats with her friends about stuff. I have gone through a two year battle with CPS to return her and she is still in their custody despite writing an 8 page letter stating everything I had been telling CPS was true and she had lied. CPS retaliated against me because I insisted I didn't do anything wrong. There was never an initial investigation and CPS repeatedly ignored reports from psychologist that showed my daughter lied about almost everything. While under their protective care she was mugged in a park very late at night. She ran away to Texas. She hitched hiked there with a couple of friends. CPS actually blamed me for her running away in their care. I didn't have any access or visitation with her at the time so how could it be my fault. Hennepin County Child Protection is a joke. My daughter was placed in foster care because I doubted her claims and anyone who wants to see that paperwork I am happy to show it to them. They took her out of a safe home and put her in some very unsafe situations.

Teresa macmillan said...

My case is so different..........my daughters father HAS been abusing her and she has reported it, school reported it and friends and even her counselor. She has had bruising on her bottom,arm, black eye marks on her side from a belt....just to name a few. Copes come and do nothing. Father uses that he is an ex navy seal and I believe that's what saves his butt. The cops have said awful things to my daughter...you should be grateful that you have a nice home and lots of things, your stepmom can slam your head into the counter and that would be disapline, if I take you to Juvenal hall your will get beat up because the whites won't except you and the black won't either because you are mixed and no one would help you. Now this is only some of what has been said to her. I talked to CPS, who have been there many many times, and one even said she sees thru him and the police should have arrested him long ago but since they didn't there is nothing we can do. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I know you can spank your child but can't leave marks.....this man leaves them and he even tells our daughter when CPS leaves" I see CPS is really working for you" and laughs his monster laugh. She started cutting and talks about wanting to die. She has given up asking for help because it doesn't help and when they all leave she has to deal with her father and his wife. They even blamed her for the loss of the child the wife was carrying...omgosh how can you put that on a child....she has always been so excited to become a vet and that's all she has talked about for years and years. Not anymore because her father and his wife tell her she can't and how stupid she is. They buy her clothes 5 sizes too big and tell her she is fat, if she gets into trouble at home her father takes all her things away and locks her out of her room. He then makes her wear this awful outfit to school where the kids all laugh at her. I told him it's wrong and that will stick with her until she's out of school. Kids are so mean and you are making this happen. He says to me " and your points is". Why on earth would any parent do that to there child? This is just a game to him. His wife always tells her how she doesn't want her there and they even tell her that I don't love or want her, that I'm such a bad mom, she is damaged because of her mom and on and on. Mother point to all of this is my daughter has cried out for help and nothing....I've called and made reports and nothing. I've always told my kids that if your ever hurt or touched by anyone tell the police , a teacher anyone and you will be helped and not hurt any longer. When I was married to him the very night of our wedding is when he started hitting me. He abounded me for quite some time and even forced himself on my while I begged him to stop with tears coming down my face and nothing. He got away with all of that too. He would wear his navy uniform to court, that shouldn't be that way but it is. He can make anyone beleive him and he knows it. He even wears his uniform to court and gets out of his speeding tickets. Mproblem is he is no long in and hasn't been for a good 8 years now and knows his not supposed to wear it.
Anyone out there that has ideas or can help please email me. Bkmlove@yahoo.com
As of right now she is with me. He is trying to get me for kid napping and not following a court order and is telling her she is getting me into trouble. She is now 17 and refuses to go back, I'm in idaho and he is in victorville california. I'm scared to death but my daughter doesn't need to be hurt any longer. No one would help her.......we need help if anyone has ideas or info to help me help her

Cps stole my daughter 3 years ago without a warrant from school. I thought it would be best if I could get my sister to accept placement of her. At first she my sister said no I talked to her some more she then said yes. Well that was 2 months after CPS stole her and I still do not have my daughter back. I didnt realize my sister was such a control freakin monster!I only had one visit a week until this past March 2014 I was suddenly given overnights . We did about 5 weeks of sat-sun visits I then had to do 30 days in jail on an unrelated nonviolent misdemeanor when I got out this sister had an attitude we had agreed I could visit my daughter no one said to me anything about when to bring her back and I planned to bring her back before dark but this sister called we argued I hung up and did not return my daughter who by the way is 13 not 3 and now I am facing 2nd degree kidnapping charges. BY the way this sister 3 days after calling the cops on me called my 27 year old son to see if he would take custody of my daughter!!!

I was places with a sex offender at one point and up until the placement happened because my parents were running scared I had a happy childhood it destroyed my family and created monsters out of my brothers both spent most of their childhoods in foster care and in jail and on my and on of my little sisters talk and its on a needed basis out of 7 kids only 2 of us really talk and we barley have relationships with our parents because of it and we have no family relationship what so ever because of foster care and CPS we are torn, after foster care my mom and dad eventually got a divorce leaving us in torn situation especially me i was adopted by me step dad at around age 4, I never thought that an adoption could ever ruin a childs chances at life but mine was not done right and to make matters worse i cant get an id card i can get a job my birth certificate does not match my ss card i cant even go back to school as a young mom because of this Identity crisis not to mention i cant help my kids with getting an ID early because i cant get mine and to just add to the mess i married my oldest sons dad and now i have been in a 7 year battle with the state to get my life back...Child Protective Services thinks that they mean well but i have read story upon story in the paper about them destroying good families and leaving many abused children to die over prescription over doses because their parents dont want to deal with their ADHD or Their Bipolar disorders and then what do they tell the press "we were checking into it." one in particular that i remember reading about was a 6 year old girl! i have nothing good to say about child prospective services i have met social workers that seem to mean well and seem to be good parent but always in the end they are worse then they appear i changed a social workers life showed here the other side of the peoples life when they get involved she is currently in school to be an attorney...

I am posting this for a very dear friend of mine in hopes to help her get these precious babies back. Even if you can not donate, please post it to any of the resources you might have like face book or twitter. The more it gets out the more likely they are to get them back. The legal system is a joke and they are being jerked around by it. My friend and her family are being torn apart. I know there are still caring people out there. To them thank you for your support!

bucks county cps is running me around and making threats towards my wife... My kids are out of my house volountarily cooperating with cps since there is no court order. They say if you do this and this that the kids can return home. I do both and say I'm bringing my kids home and they say that they "reassessed" the situation and they can't return. When I say they lied to me and I was bringing them home they say they need to talk to their attorney to see if they have enough to take it to the judge for a court order. Obviously they didn't have enough because they call back and threaten with if I bring the kids home they will push on the DA and police to have my wife arrested and a no contact order placed. The agency makes up their own rules and doesn't follow their protocols, and continuously lies to you and calls it a "reassessment" when I did more than what they asked for and they had no other reasons for prolonging my childrens time away from home, but they didn't like the fact that I knew they didn't have enough reasoning to get a court order so they follow up with other threats.

I used to be a CPS worker. At the time I thought I was doing some good, and that CPS needed to be restructured. I worked in an office that ma have been somewhat misguided but not totally corrupt. Since then I moved to California and I am appalled. A child in my family was removed for no other reason than that a couple was seeking a healthy baby to adopt. These so-called social workers do not have social work degrees, they have not been trained, they are corrupt, vicious, slanderous, and singly focused on their agenda-in our case to find a cute healthy babies for their foster to adopt family. CPS does not need to be restructured. It needs to be disintegrated. They destroy families. They don't help. And this truly is a human trafficking money making system that has completely lost any of the value that may have once driven them. Even bad families are better than the system. Outcome stats for foster kids is proof of that. After hiring a lawyer and winning our case, they came after our baby again, with the most incredulous lies. We had to quit our jobs, break our leases,and leave the state because they were pursuing him again. Just days before we went to court, the social worker and foster parent had colluded to take him across the country. Thankfully, a substitute judge put quash on that. We are not sure if being out of the state will keep him safe or if we will need to take him out of the country to keep him safe from these monsters.

Anonymous: You evidently are nieve to what really goes on with CPS, because they took all three of my children many years ago, and the things that were allowed to happen in the foster homes were horrible. All of this started because I was a single mother, and decided to sign my children up for Big Brothers, Big Sisters. The people I got happened to be the Librarian at my son's school. Well she got it in her head to try to take my oldest son from me with false accusations that My late husband had abused him. She told me years later that the first time she saw him, she said she was going to get him one way or another, so she convinced my son to accuse his stepfather of abuse. He was arrested and charged with of all things cruel and unusual horseplay, meaning that they used to get out in the yard and wrestle with each other. He was fined 200 dollars and put on probation. Then they came after my other 2 children and the accusations were sexual abuse and mental abuse. These people put me through hell during that time. My youngest son was beaten by another foster brother on a daily basis. I had to go through parenting classes, among other things. I eventually had to put my youngest son in a boys home in order to keep him alive, because he was breaking into places and stealing pornography. The man who owned the place was going to wire his building up to a 220 to keep him out. He escalated to worse crimes,so I sent him away. The Social worker then had me charged with abandonment, because of this. I blame all of the liars of these perpetrated crimes for a lot of my sons mental issues. If I hadn't of sent him away he would be dead today. I believe that these Social Workers have an agenda, because they do lie, and I've been reading lately that 40 some children have disappeared from one state under the so called care of the workers. I do believe that these children are being sold in the black market, and are also being used for Satanic rituals. I don't believe these children that are being kidnapped by the thousands are alive today. I believe that the majority of these Social Workers are corrupt. There are a few good ones, because I've dealt with I know one, and there are more, but for the most part no. Don't believe everything you're told and little of what they let you see.It's gotten a whole lot worse today than when this woman who wrote the above article went through it. My daughter accused her step father of sexual abuse, then when we went to court she recanted her story and said she did it because she didn't like where we were living at, so she believed that if she had my husband locked up that I would have to move away. She was 12 at the time and didn't understand that he was facing 20 years. She got scared and admitted to the judge that she lied. My husband has since died, and I believe that this incident broke his heart. He died of cancer at only age 46. Because of this my family has been torn apart.

My CPS caseworker has a salary of almost $70,000 per year. My child was kidnapped by them for something myself and his father did not do. We completed our "service plan" and have clean drug tests. The psych evaluation we had to take by someone on contract with CPS was full of lies. Our caseworker never once tried to help us with shelter when we became homeless months after our child was taken. She was only concerned about hygiene. Now that the foster mother wants to adopt OUR CHILD,they are terminating our rights after we did all the work to finish our service plan,are free from drugs,and have a 4 bedroom house. Doesn't seem right to me. And this is in Illinois. Every state seems to have a screwed up system. They tear families apart and punish the child for things they never did. My child has had bruises in odd places since being in foster care. Is always sick when he never was before he was taken. He thinks he has two mommies. All CPS does is kidnap children,lie about the parents and ruin lives.

Has anyone ever been in a same-sex relationship and had CPS, DSS, DHS, etc. remove your child? Saying it was unhealthy, unbalanced, all that discriminatory stuff?
How about the state of SC? Anyone ever had dealings with that DSS? NC?
Any help, helps

I have to say...your story is what could have been for my brother and I. An ex-family friend who was/is obsessed with our family reported to CPS that I was being sexually molested by my step father turned adoptive father after a rumor was started in my old church (nice, huh?) by some of the kids in the youth group, including the pastor's kids. CPS showed up at my school (I was a sophomore in high school) and started grilling me, where I subsequently lost my crap and started screaming at the woman. I was so, so tired of everyone talking about this stupid rumor and there CPS was, feeding off of it.

After screaming at her, I told her that the conversation was over and called my mom, who immediately sent my grandparents to pick me up because the CPS woman talked to her in the meantime and set up a meeting with her and my adoptive father to talk about the allegations.

My grandparents took me out to eat, and we got a call mid meal from my mom. The same woman had gone to my brother's school (who was 8 at the time) and asked him leading questions like "does your dad tickle you or your sister? Does he wrestle with you or your sister?" Keeping in mind that we had shielded my brother from the rumor at the church, he had no knowledge of what was happening and answered the questions truthfully with a "Yes." Because, guess what? That's what families do! They play, they rough house!

So me and my grandparents went and immediately picked up my brother from his school because the woman had terrified him so badly by telling him that he was probably going to end up in foster care and he'd better tell the truth. By that time the woman had met with my parents, decided the allegations were just that (that I was very adamant the abuse had not happened), and " let my parents off with a 2 year probation". Both parents. A 2 year probation for a crime that was not committed but for a rumor started by a handful of psycho mean girls. Their 2 year probation ended in 2007, and they got letters to tell them so.

I came this close to being pulled from my home, or having my brother removed or both. I would've gone kicking and screaming and made their life a living hell, but my brother was too little too fight.

While I understand the comments of "without CPS a lot of children would suffer", you have to see it from a victim of CPS's point of view. I stand here a victim of their system. The things the woman said to me shortly before I lost my crap, the things she said to my brother, the way she treated my parents....it victimized us all. At the same time, I sit back and see hundreds of parents living off the system and mistreating their children, and when CPS is called to investigate, the children "aren't in any danger" despite being filthy and having a mother who is so bad of a drunk her oldest (7 year old) takes care of the baby. So the ones that need help don't get it, and the ones that don't are taken from their homes, family put under scrutiny and traumatized by the agency. Who is CPS really trying to "help"?

I'm in agreement. CPS is corrupt and needs either a serious reform or to be closed up all together - it's not like they're doing their job anyhow.....

wow...I truly believe you when you say the system is corrupt and based on lies, gossip and deceptions. I also believe the whole CPS system is a well oiled money machine.

This can happen to anyone. I have seen it first hand in Sweden where the unprofessional and unethical conduct hurts children.

I mean that these unprofessional and inexperienced social workers, teachers, judges and even create great harm in not doing their best to protect a child. Instead parental gossip and no facts are used to create an illusion of a child social environment leading to their removal from a loving parent.

It can happen in any country. Even in Sweden.

Ill trained people in positions of great power have nothing to loose in relating gossipy things about a single mom with multiple boyfriends...which isn't true but spread from faculty members and then related to cps as truth.

This is all wrong and the system is corrupt. Ultimately, great harm that will never be undone to an innocent child put in misery all caused at the hands of these unprofessional employed workers that are paid to serve families.

So sorry this is happening but it is and it can happen to anyone. As I said...The whole system is a well oiled money machine and your child is needed to fund it.

to the first anonymous responder whatever your direction of your statement to defend a corrupted and ignorant system is flawed beyon comprehention. Your severily wrong. Im not a mother, father, grandma nor grandpa, ima a 19 teen who has been victimized by CPS on numorous occasions . to say that any of what has happened in the article above is an opinion you lie to yourself. i was put in the car of CPS at age 13 for terroristic threats. i wont lie this is true what i did but the following is what is not true. I was accused of a sexual assault that was False and had no evidense of anykind to back it up. i went to trial. CPS called in a doctor who did the elegid victims physical exam. She reported there was scar tissue forming. and that i caused it. when my attorny asked if that could have been caused by any other activity such as falling from a bike or falling down. the dr. was hushed by a I object froma CPS officer hiding any other possible evidence. so i sat away in a treatment facility for 23 months. the last 50 days i sat in that facility my appeal was in motion. i won the appeal and went home only to be taken away from my family the next day saying i was selling drugs. This is not true. i got 14 hours with my mother and father. then they took me away. i sat in a detention center for 3 months for a crime i could have no way of committed due to pror incarceration. i was let out after those 3 months. when i came home i had to go to counceling. for 4 months i did councling then when my check up hearing came along DR.ALLen smith reccomended i go to YRTC-k in kearney nebraska. i sat there for 12 months because a Therapist said i wasnt telling him everying he needed to know. i got out went to live with my grandmother then a foster home then my mother who didnt want me in the first place back to my grandmothers . I tried tried to commit scuicide would have died if were not for the ambulence getting there. CPS stated that i tried to commit scuicide to get out of alligations i knew nothing about. i sat in NRC for Rapists and Child molesters for another false allegation. i was there for 7 months . CPS submitted a request for sexual predator eval and mental health eval and stated in the court document that the said juvenile is not exspected to leave the care of NRC for the rest of his life. CPS screwed themselves not knowing the NRC allready knew that there was no way i even had the nerve to do such a crime and that there was no possible way i had any mental illness. i passed both exams. CPS was outside the day of my release tying to tell me i had to go with them. I flipped CPS OFF and went home to my only two carrying family members i had left that were not turned against me by CPS. and went home. Iv been on my own since.i am unemployed, no home, no life, no happiness. i dont get to have any hollidays with the family i once had. i dont get to wach my siblings grow up. i dont get a life for things i never did to deserve that punishment. so i say fuck you CPS and all the bullshit you try to portray. if you anonamys user wish to protect families and there children then join the abundsment agancey and investigate these corrupt agencies tearing families apart peice by peice.

Guess what
