Legally Kidnapped

Shattering Your Child Welfare Delusions Since 2007

Wednesday, September 23, 2009



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.


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.
