Dane County officials recently moved to ensure the safety of a local child after state officials tipped off the county that a registered sex offender listed the same home address as the child's foster home.
Churenel Rector doesn't know who she is.
She can't recall ever seeing her mother. The memory of a photograph that she last held more than 15 years ago is the only image she has of the woman who brought her into this world.
Thirty-one people were arrested Tuesday during a truancy sweep in Sacramento County.
Among those arrested during Tuesday's sweep included a Child Protective Services worker whose child was habitually truant, and a mother who was found in her home smoking marijuana with her truant son.
Probation Arrests Parents for Truant Children
Parents found out the hard way that it's against the law for their children not to go to school.
Note: A babystealer arrested for her kids truancy! LOL!!! You'd think she'd be a better parent.
A 6-year-old little boy was taken from his home by CPS caseworkers, while he was being watched and supervised by his grandfather, a retired LTC USA. His mother had raised him for 6-years, alone as a single mother. False allegations were made to Child Protective Services, by his unwed, absentee, father so, CPS classified it as a dependency case, now the child has became a ward of the state.
A new study finds Michigan could save money if it did a better job of providing legal aid to parents in child neglect or abuse investigations.
Lack of legal help keeping many parents, kids apart
Sometimes it's because of sheer neglect or abuse. But often, not having attorneys to represent them keeps Michigan moms and dads away from their children.
The foster mother of a 9-year-old boy accused in the gang-rape of an 8-year-old Liberian girl testified Tuesday that the boy is flourishing in her home and is so happy there that he sings all the time.
State social service administrators are demanding a host of reforms from a Fort Lauderdale drug treatment program, saying in a report that Spectrum staff members have used ``hostility, bullying, humiliation and fear'' to treat adolescent drug addicts and given them cold medicine to make them sleep.
Kings County (Brooklyn, NY) Family Court Judge J. Alan Beckoff denied a petition to terminate the parental rights of an incarcerated father late last week. In the matter of Jayquan J., SCO Family of Services, a foster care agency, petitioned the court to terminate the parental rights of Clint J., saying that he had made no efforts to contact his child and had abandoned the child, therefore his consent was not needed to put Jayquan up for adoption.
A lawsuit filed against the state Department of Social and Health Services on behalf of two children who were sexually abused by their state-licensed foster parents has been settled for $2.5 million, according to DSHS officials and the children’s attorney.
A panel of judges from across the state perused transcripts Tuesday and watched hours of video recordings from the courtroom of a Central Kentucky family court judge facing charges of misconduct.
Black and American-Indian children are more likely to be placed in foster care and to remain wards of the state longer than whites, an Oregon study finds.
Each day before the school bus comes to pick up the neighborhood's children, Lisa Snyder did a favor for three of her fellow moms, welcoming their children into her home for about an hour before they left for school.
Regulators who oversee child care, however, don't see it as charity. Days after the start of the new school year, Snyder received a letter from the Michigan Department of Human Services warning her that if she continued, she'd be violating a law aimed at the operators of unlicensed day care centers.

Few people object to the existence of government agencies charged with protecting children from abuse and neglect, nor do they oppose giving these agencies the power to remove children from abusive environments, at least as a last resort.
However, this post from the Wall Street Journal Law Blog shows what can happen when the legitimate mission of state Child Protective Services agencies can become sidetracked by puritanical hysteria.
Connecticut has received an extra $511,354 from the federal government as a bonus for its efforts to increase the number of children adopted from foster care.
Note: Florida got over $9 Million. So there! You guys are slacking.
A Vietnamese court has sentenced six people to up to 4 1/2 years in prison for arranging more than 300 fraudulent adoptions, a court official said Tuesday.
Among those sentenced were the heads of two welfare centers who helped persuade unwed pregnant mothers to give up their babies in exchange for free food and shelter.
Had this parental abduction drama played out in the United States, Christopher Savoie might be considered a hero -- snatching his two little children back from an ex-wife who defied the law and ran off with them.
It was Jack White's dream job: working with developmentally handicapped children at the very treatment centre where he had suffered 12 years of institutional abuse at a time when such horrors were commonplace.
A citizens' report on Fresno County Child Protective Services, prompted by a beating death of a 10-year-old boy in January, calls for improved communication among agencies that respond to child-abuse allegations.
Elise was placed in foster care at the age of 13, after being raped in her home by a man her mother knew. Just days later, Elise had to testify in her mother's presence about the rape and her mother's prostitution and drug addiction. The most resilient adult would struggle to cope with such trauma. Yet, Elise was unable to get any therapy or counseling for several months. Why? Because she was placed in a foster home outside the county where she lived.
Child abuse doesn't discriminate by race in Oregon. Authorities say the abuse rate is the same for white families as it is for minorities.
The first children in Britain have started receiving a swine flu vaccine as part of a major new trial.

A former Orange County second-grade teacher who also served as a foster parent pleaded guilty to a federal child-pornography charge this morning.
Two recent cases of maltreatment have prompted Oregon officials to initiate the state’s first ever study of how children in foster care are neglected or abused, reports Ruth Liao of the Statesman Journal.
Plans to allow the media to name social workers in family court cases are being opposed strongly by judges and lawyers, who warn that the change could breach human rights laws. They have expressed “grave concerns” that the latest tranche of reforms to open up the courts may drive away experts and violate children’s rights to privacy.
THE CHILDREN’S Rights Alliance has called for the urgent ratification by Ireland of the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoptions in the light of the lapsing of a bilateral adoption agreement between Ireland and Vietnam.

The Menace of Middleville: The Michigan DHS Files Complaint Against Woman Who Watched Neighborhood Kids While They Waited For Their School Bus
Lisa Snyder has been finally stopped. Because some parents in her neighborhood have to go to work before the bus picks up their kids in front of Snyder’s house, Snyder watches three children in Middleville, Michigan for the 15 or so minutes while they wait. The Michigan Department of Human Services has now filed a complaint against her for illegally operating a child care home.
The tragic details of 2-year-old Guillermo Alvarez's life and death appeared in a recent Californian article. But it took an act of the state Legislature and the signature of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to lift the veil of secrecy from tragedies such as Guillermo's.
The Oregon Court of Appeals reversed a decision this week by a controversial Clackamas County judge whose rulings prompted Attorney General John Kroger to block her from handling child-welfare cases.
The appeals court said Circuit Judge Deanne Darling erred when she ordered an infant, who Department of Human Services claimed was physically abused, returned to the mother.

The parents of a 3-month-old say they are afraid Arkansas child welfare officials are going to take their baby in retaliation for an affidavit signed by the father and filed in federal court last week.
Lawmakers have a habit of racing too quickly to solve one highly publicized problem, only to inadvertently create a whole new set of problems. If we are not very careful, Los Angeles County is heading straight toward a bunch of unintended consequences in reaction to a pair of tragic events relating to LA’s foster care system.
Following the railroad track to new roots.
“They put us all on a big platform in some big building while people came from all around the countryside to pick out those of us they wished to take home. I was four years old, and my sister was only two . . .”
This is a tragic tale of Corrupt and Criminal juidicial neglect which led to the death of Adrianna Cram, the words cannot express the pain or anguish her mother must have endured. This girl though is one of the many that have been lost in a string of wide-spread child kidnapping by CPS. This vile and putrid organisation is rotten to the core, backed up by an equally vile and putrid Family Court System.
Just how much one person suffers from CPS is amazing, Sonja (shreddededsociety) has suffered dreadfully from the appalling corruption at the so called family court in St Louis Missouri. Yet this is only the tip of the iceberg. The illigitamate theft of thousands of children by perjury and corruption is rife across the developed world. Something all decent people need to be aware of.
It was about 9 a.m. on a Saturday, Labor Day weekend 2008, when police knocked on AJ and Lisa Demaree's door. They had some questions about certain pictures the Peoria couple had dropped off at a Walmart the previous evening.

In this case, a single father actually wins a round in family court. It's not over yet, for reasons I don't understand, but read the court's opinion here and maybe you can figure it out.
Susan Atkins, who committed one of modern history's most notorious crimes when she joined Charles Manson and his gang for a string of killings in 1969 that terrorized Los Angeles and put her in prison for the rest of her life, has died. She was 61.
Her father eventually abandoned them for good. Susan and her brother moved to the rural Cental Valley town of Los Banos, where their grandparents lived. Susan enrolled in high school and got a job as a waitress but was overwhelmed by the stress of trying to care for her brother, work and go to class. At one point, she and Steven were in foster care. Susan dropped out of school in the 11th grade and started drifting.

A highly unusual report, ordered by the Gov. Christine Gregoire, is out. It’s in response to a series of news reports by the KING 5 Investigators.
The Utah Fetal Alcohol Coalition is planning a November seminar in Kaysville to help parents raising children who suffer from fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
The disorders are the No. 1 known cause of birth defects and intellectual disabilities, according to the Utah Department of Health. Each year, 40,000 babies are born with FASD in the U.S. -- and the majority of them are adopted by unprepared families.
An Ohio woman is carrying another woman's baby after an error at a fertility clinic. Embryo mix-ups are rare, often leading to ugly lawsuits. But not this time. The Savage couple is giving the baby to its biological parents.
Note: That was stupid.

Foster kids are more likely to become young mothers, a new study finds. The University of Chicago study found that almost half of all girls who had been in foster care became pregnant by the age of 19. The study also found a high rate of multiple pregnancies in a girl’s teenage years.
The founding director of a summer camp for foster children blasted the Rockingham County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday night for their "lack of ability to deliver social services to children and families in the community."
A Care Council for Wales conduct committee has been accused of being overly influenced by a child's death in its decision to bar a Swansea social worker in relation to the case.
A Michigan representative has proposed a bill that would allow families to leave their children in the care of friends without repercussions.
Rep. Brian Calley, R-Portland, said he has learned that the Michigan Department of Human Services has ordered a Middleville family to stop caring for a friend’s child because they are not a licensed day care.
Note: Just not enough.
More Long Island children are being diverted from the foster care system into the homes of relatives, mirroring what experts said was a growing trend toward finding familiar surroundings for vulnerable youth, county officials said.
A voluntary recall of several varieties of children’s and infants’ Tylenol has been announced by the drug’s manufacturer, McNeil Consumer Healthcare. Specific lots and flavors of 21 Tylenol products are being recalled, including Children’s Tylenol® Suspension 4 oz. Strawberry, Children’s Tylenol® Pediatric Suspension 1 oz. Cherry, and Infants’ Tylenol® Suspension Drops ½ oz. Grape.
Recent events got me thinking of a conversation I had with a co-worker a while back. He had served on a jury that was deciding whether to take five children away from a mother who neglected them and allowed others to abuse them. It was one of those hard cases with no good option and no good news.

It is such a long ordeal. Starting when she was 3 and court ordered visits with bio/father. I kept journal of her behaviors that were concerning and of things she said. She has told of abuse, all kinds since 3, but wouldnt repeat it to the official people needing to hear it from her. And when she has told the "right" people, they interview the bio/father and let it go. Things such as "inappropriate discipline" for a 3 year old. and most recently, at 7 years old, July 08, she has told all the right people of a pool incident occuring in care of bio/father at bio/father's parents house, that daughter has said"Daddy John hurt me, i am afraid of him, he will be mad I told.
"Daddy john wouldnt stop dunking me and couldnt hop on one foot forever"
This was dismissed after interviewing bio/father as a "normal" splashing event. 3 weeks later my daughter has such disturbing behaviors that we child line it. Forensic exam shows sexual abuse. But since my daughter didnt come right out and say" i was sexually abused" they wont take the pool incident as the place it must of occurred.
Instead-- they took my daughter on June 19, 2009 and put her in foster home, without contact from her family and now that she has been secluded- Children and YOuth SErvices' psychologist has taught her a vocabulary (one she had was quite advanced for a 7 year old) and now she has named her oldest brother as the one who sexually abused her, plus her bio/ mom now knew about it, and her stepdad, threatened her to keep quiet about it.
Her stepfather and myself-her bio/mom are in shock, we childlined it, we did everything we could to protect her, get her help for her symptoms and yet IT ALL HAS BEEN TURNED ON US, AND WE NOW HAVE A MESS--NO DAUGHTER, AND it is taking all we got to fight to get her back.
bio/father has a criminal record, arrested 1 month after the pool incident for growing drugs, and his 2nd dui. Yet they polygraph him as the investigative tool, and passed, eve though he had been growing marijauana and hadnt got caught with it at the time of polygraph. How can one pass a polygraph while knowing you are doing other illegal things?? Because my ex is a socio path and i left because he was punching the bed beside my curled up body everywhere when i was pregnant with her, and threatened to kill the baby if i didnt stay with him. Drank heavily, urinated in the kitchen sink, and tried to make me sell marijuana. I left. He then harassed my parents via phone, and threatened to take my 4 children i had to my ex-husband away too. Had to call State POlice to get him to stop harassing my parents.
What is with this system in Crawford County??
A couple my cousin and her daughter lived with for a little over a year is seeking custody of her child. On 8-26-09 the couple claimed she abandoned her child last year and filed a intervention in a pending Attorney General child support case my cousin filed on her Childs father. The couple is requesting sole custody. They want the child to have no visitation from the biological parents or relatives. This couple has lied to CPS, police, judges, government welfare services, identifies there self as Foster Parents and gossips to anyone who will listen.
On 8-20-09, I witnessed my cousin attempt to retrieve her and her child’s belongings and child from their residence. Law enforcement escorted us to the home but would not order the surrender of child. She was allowed to retrieve some of her belongings that had been placed in the garage. She was verbally attacked and accusations where made to embarrass and prevent her from living with her child. The local CPS office was closed leaving us with no options until the day. She made a report/complaint with the Child abuse hotline that her CPS case was closed in May 2009 and her former case worker had confirmed to her relative (me) 4 hours ago the case was closed. She explained the couple she lives with is stating its open and they are not to give her the child because a emergency suit was file and the CPS case was a emergency re-opened. She stated she was moving out of the home and they are making false claims in an attempt to keep her child. The whole time she lived with them telling her, her family was going to take the baby away and that they would never do that to her. They have now confronted her they are going after custody.
On Friday 8-21-09, a CPS investigator went to the couple’s home. We can only assume to investigate claims the couple was making to CPS about the Childs mother. Late that evening the CPS investigator calls and states she is getting 3 different versions on what is going on, an wants to set up a meeting Monday Aug 24,2009. Sunday Aug 23 ,2009 at around 7:00 pm we were told the meeting (a round table) was to take place at the Weatherford, TX CPS office. This meeting location was 3 hours away and we got less than twenty-four hour notice.
On 8-24-09, the meeting took place. The CPS investigator, investigator supervisor, Biological mother, maternal great aunt, maternal 2nd cousin , Mrs. ****** arrived on time but Mr. ******** was a hour late. (Couple who will not release child) After the first hour of the meeting CPS employees spoke with the biological mother alone for about a hour. Everyone was called back into the meeting, and at this time Mr. ******** was here to participate. As the meeting continued the first 25 minuets was spent backtracking to fill Mr.******** in on what he missed. Then it was announced the child would transition to the maternal cousin. Mrs. ******** became upset and ran out of the meeting crying, and slamming the door. She was unable to compose her self and act in the best interest of the child, her participation in the meeting ending at that time.
Mr.******** questioned CPS on why the mother should get the child, stating they can care for here and that it wasn’t right. CPS was more concerned with the Mr. & Mrs. T’s feelings then the bio. mothers. Mr. T insisted it was not right that cps was not going to permanently allowing them to keep the child. A transition schedule was planned and started in three days. We all received copies of the signed participation plan we agreed to.
I had prayed for this day for a long time. She was just 17 years old when her daughter was born and involved with an abusive boy friend. Yes she made some bad choices, abusive boyfriend then to a emotionally abusive controlling environment by living with this couple but I thought everything was getting on the right path. I was very wrong.
On Aug. 28, 2009 the first day of visitation went horribly wrong. I should have listened to my guts warning. We spoke with Mrs. T the day before the scheduled pick up at the Childs daycare. Mrs. T insisted on the bio. Mothers attendance to assist me with any issues that might arise with me trying to pick the Child from daycare. On pick up day we exited my vehicle walking to the daycare entrance and the bio. mother was served with Mr. & Mrs. T’s petition in intervention to suit and court order.
How can a couple get a restraining order allowing them to temporary keep a child they have no legal rights to. They only filed because CPS and bio mother made plans to remove the child from there care and possession. How is this not interference with a CPS investigation for this couple to not follow the plan and file suit. How can CPS get away with NOT physically removing the child from this couples home on the 28th of Aug.? Filing a suit when they have no proof of rights ( because they have no rights) or that the child was endanger, and retain the child from the bio mother who cared and provided for. I was not a party to this suit and have guardianship over the child yet no one removed the child from this couple’s physical possession, after it was clearly not an appropriate placement. How is this not kidnapping ! All we can do now is wait until the hearing in 11 days.
People need to know about the legal unjust way my second cousin was kidnapped.
§ 151.001. RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF PARENT
I witnessed emotional abuse to the biological mother on several occasions. I feel the Mrs. T may suffer from a mental illness. They use the child to fill his or her unhealthy emotional needs at the expense of the parent and child relationship.
My cousin has been verbally attacked, spy upon, and accused of actions they have no personal knowledge only to bully, harass, embarrass, intimidate, and isolated so they may keep her child. Emotional abuse, brainwashing, and communicating to third parties they are foster parents and they are to care for and withhold the child from the bio. mother is just plan abusive. The couple uses poor judgment in allowing a person with a pending 1st degree felony (Drugs) to live in the home. This places the child in danger yet they keep her from her mother.
8-28-09 the couple displayed extreme, obsessive, and ongoing parental alienation that may cause terrible psychological damage to the child and my cousin. The Couple is not disclosing the correct location of the child when questioned giving me concern they are hiding the child or preparing to flee to Kentucky.
Mr.******** verbally via phone attempted to bully my cousin to come and speak with him in private to “work things out.” I am concerned with Mrs. ******* claiming she received information on “Aug 18” from a person who has been deceased for 13 years.
Isolation of the child from the bio mothers relatives with no just cause.
Couple makes false accusations in attempts to discredit and bully bio mother in an attempt to have short-term control over her and the child. Couple repeatedly allow their adult children and persons to have access to the child who have been known to exercise poor and bad judgment ,use drugs, accused of using drug, persons who have been in jail, committed domestic violence to bio. mother. Couple allows the adult son with a pending 1st degree felony (poss. drugs w/ intent to deliver) to live in home with them and the child.
I fear for the child’s safety and well-being in her current environment because the present abuse and neglect. The couples obstructed view and concerns for only their needs and wants is of great concern for the safety of the child.
I feel the child is in immediate danger and requested the child be removed from the home and care of the couple,…No one seems to care about what is going on. The bio mother and maternal family can and will provide a safe, drug free, abuse free, caring, and loving environment for the child to thrive in. Removing her from the danger, abuse, and drama is the only safe remedy for the abuse to stop but I cannot get anyone to take action. I just pray each day for her safety and the day a change is made. Children are the future… CPS and Law enforcement must be held accountable for not removing children from dangerous caregivers and environments. We must have justice and uphold parental rights. If CPS is busy, harass a innocent parent because it makes the job easier then who is helping the true victims. I have taken a community stand and will continue to fight and tell this story.
CPS is corrupt. My son and girlfriend had a new baby, they are taking him from them. They also will not talk to us, the grandparents. Saying they can not divulge any info to us. Small one horse town in Oregon, and the sheriff is married to the cps worker on the case, he has been heard making comments about how he wants to buy a baby, the cousin of the mother is married to a cop, and the other cousin is a jailer. All 3 are standing in line for our grandbaby, The cousin married to the cop hates my son and the mother, I know they have very little chance of getting the baby returned to them, My daughter wants to take the child, but we have no means to fight them, no attorneys will help unless you have a hefty bank account, we will have to live the rest of our lives knowing we have a child out there somewhere, our everyday lives will be empty now. IT will be like having a bouquet of forget- me- nots sent to us everyday for the rest of ours lives. WE can love this baby, why do they do this to families. I will go to my grave with a broken heart, and this baby will be forever lost to us just because we have no one to help us fight these people. nobody cares, nobody helps, they just write about it, nothing changes. I am sad, depressed and feel hopeless, and I am mad. no one will fight the cop or the sheriff, they have had this planned since they new of the mother being pregnant, so now the sheriff won't have to buy a baby, he will get one for free, and get a monthly check to along with it. I hope they all rot in Hell for this.

Clyde Ray Spencer spent 20 years in prison for crimes he didn’t commit. In 1984, Spencer was a police officer being investigated on false claims of child sexual abuse and was getting a divorce. His wife Shirley Hanson and her lover apparently decided they wanted him out of their lives to proceed with their relationship. They “finished him off” by having their children falsely accuse him of child sexual abuse. Since Shirley Hanson’s lover Michael Davidson was another sheriff department employee, the attack on Clyde Ray Spencer was made easier.

An Arizona couple accused of sexual abuse after taking bath-time photos of their children and then trying to have them developed at Walmart are suing the state and the retail giant.
Lisa and Anthony "A.J." Demaree's three young daughters were taken away by Arizona Child Protective Services last fall when a Walmart employee found partially nude pictures of the girls on a camera memory stick taken to the store for processing, according to the suit.
The Peoria couple's attorney said Walmart turned the photos over to police and the Demarees were not allowed to see their children for several days and didn't regain custody for a month while the state investigated.
Neither parent was charged with sexual abuse and they regained custody of their children — then ages 1 1/2, 4 and 5 — but the Demarees claim the incident inflicted lasting harm.
The couple is seeking undetermined monetary damages from both Walmart and the state and have requested a jury trial.
Richard Treon, the lawyer for the Demarees, said the images of the girls were part of a group of 144 photographs taken mostly during the family's vacation in San Diego.
There were seven to eight bath- and playtime photos of the girls that showed a "portion or outline or genitalia."
Parent's worse nightmare
"There was nothing sexual about it," Treon said. "This is a parent's worst nightmare."
One lawsuit names Arizona, Peoria and the state Attorney General's Office as defendants, claiming that employees from each defamed them by telling friends, family members and co-workers that they had "sexually abused" their children by taking pornographic pictures of them.

Calls to Arkansas-based Walmart and officials from Peoria and Arizona seeking comment on the suits were not immediately returned Thursday.

For tens of thousands of people who were abused as children in the state's orphanages and foster homes over the past decades, an apology from the NSW premier has gone some way to help in the healing process.
