Its so true they removed my child because me and my boyfriend were fighting and then because I relapsed after being 5 yrs clean they removed my son from our home and put a no contact order between me and the dad and we been together 6 yrs +. My son every time I see him flops around and yells and screams and crys to go home and they say oh he just gotta get used to it. Now she found bs charges in orange co saying they are mine but they arent I never been there in 2015. and that just cuz they dont have to reunification us they wanna take my services but im fighting it. They will give him to dad though. The whole time noone care about what the child wants he says he want to go home its scary. smh
It is very true, very wrong, and happening to my family right now. I had no clue that you could take loved and loving children from a non abusive home and have so many lies and assumptions with no actual evidence or even an investigation. CPS spent 15 minutes with me 2 months ago. Since then they have had no contact with me except a letter in the mail to appear in court as they feel our children are neglected and I am a danger to the children in which besides a hug goodnight, I have never laid a hand on. I have raised my voice 3 times in 4 years though when their actions were extreme. Now the kids have been taken and their mother and I, who love each other very much are being forced apart if we want to ever see the children again. Imagine how the children are feeling. It is disgusting to think these so called child protectors are doing the right thing at all. They are like Satan's little helpers on earth. Can you comprehend watching the Cps woman smiling as she looks at the woman you love and very loving mother balling her eyes out after hearing the children are being removed from the home. That I'm afraid to say is a sick and twisted individual that I am supposed to think the kids will be ok in their hands.
I need help getting my niece and nephew back
THEY GET PAYED FOR DESTROYING CHILDREN & PERFECTLY GOOD FAMILIES! WHERE IS THE JUSTICE AND THEY CALL THIS AMERICA, LAND OF THE FREE. CPS, THEY ARE THE ABUSERS, THAT'S THE HONEST TRUTH!!!!!!
I was in an abusive relationship trying to get help, and got closed door after closed door. There was an accident with my * month old in the tub and they took both my children without even a warning, straight from the hospital. THe story gets even worse. I lost my home, lost everything. I know something is not right and I am fighting back for my babies to be with me.
Cps all over the usa needs to be looked at and here in oregon it's extremely bad. They don't even investigate the so called abuse.
An accident happened in our home and although no criminal charges took place, cps is trying to terminate my rights. Never had cps involved in my whole life. Because one cps quit and another took over, I had to do my services twice. Completed them all by the way.
Just read the report cps is giving for the hearing and bold face lies about some of the issues. We are able to call her out of some. Shouldn't she go to jail for falsifying docs? How can a 22 year old with 5 dogs and no kids, decide whats best for my son? DENTON COUNTY IS ROBBING STATE FUNDS. THE NEWS NEEDS TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS. I AM SURE LOTS OF CORRUPTION WITH THIS COUNTY. MAKES ME WANDER IF THE JUDGE IS IN ON IT. WHAT DOES HE GET UNDER THE TABLE?
My family is going through this at this moment and it is tragic that our lives are being put under a microscope by strangers because a false report was made by someone who is mad. Not to mention the damage this is doing to our repuatations in and around our small town. Mrs. Nichole Spiller out of Tyler County is the caseworker she assured me after talking to our kids that I have nothing to worry about but at this moment I trust no one. Our kids are our life and everyone who knows us knows this. This will be the third time someone has got mad and called in on me it will also be the third time that our kids are happy and healthy and free from abuse there should be more laws to protect families and keep them together instead of tearing them apart. I wholeheartedly believe people make false claims to dfps and use them as a tool of destruction when they are angry because they know there will be no punishment for it. Good luck to all out there past and present who have been falsely accused of child abuse and had your lives turned upside down. I pray for a change one day and I'm praying now that this may be the start of one.
This is for my niece and my sister cps needs to look into people's back ground before sending a child to someone that may hurt them and do them dirty stop hurting these instant children
I know first hand. After a long battle with dcs they finally terminated my rights.
This is for my grand daughters please help my Daughter get her children back and quit letting people that don't know what they have been through I will love all my grandchildren always. Please stop hurting these children.
I battled CPS for 4 long years over my 4 daughters. They took away my rights of my 2 youngest daughters and adopted them to their paternal aunt living out of state. CPS placed my 2nd daughter with her biological father against all of my warnings. I had kept her from him for 12 years after discovering child porn and learning of previous sexual abuse charges had been filed against him. Cps gave her to him anyway. Two weeks ago my daughter who is now 16 yrs old made a report with the police on her father for sexual abuse that started in 2013. She was able to provide the police with pics and texts providing proof of the abuse. At thus moment he is sitting at home once again plotting on how to once again manipulate the system that has time and time again let him get away with it just to do it again and my daughter is sitting in a group home wondering why she is being punished.Yesrday I recieved documents from CPS suing me for termination of my rights so my daughter can be adopted. And my oldest adult daughter is more than willing and able to care for her sister. I need help!!! Im desperate!!! CPS should be accountable for what they have done to my daughter after repeated warning of potential danger!!! I want to sue CPS for what they have done!!! Im just not sure where to start!!! Texas CPS are monsters!!! This is a desperate cry for help for my children...please....
I received my grandchildren 10 days after they went into custody for unfounded reasons. My 3 yr old granddaughter had been violated whil my 7 year old grandson witnessed it. After 5 months of unnecessary expenses to meet demands of the court 200 miles away, I became financially exhausted. Because I didn't finish the home study approval to be a foster home within 120 days, my grandkids were removed and placed into another foster home. CPS didn't explain all this. In fact just the opposite. This system tears children to pieces. It destroys their lives, not to mention the heartache and mental anguish that debilitates grandparents like myself. I'm totally lost and have no idea where to turn. We need this system fixed.
CPS policies are damaging families.
their are no attorneys who help a person put in this situation. Needs to stop now!!
Alabama cps is corrupt they have put my children in abuseive foster homes its been almost a year they still have my 2 sons ages 12 & 15 yr old. My kids want to come home. Our rights been violated we need help!!!

I was falsely accused and cps now has my daughter and grandson. I had to sit and listen to them lie under oath
My nephew died because of CPS. These babies need protection from them! From Seth Ireland to Ronnie Tiner you can see the negligence of this agency. Reform is desperately needed!
My son was killed in cps.
Our children are dying plus suffering needlessly. We must stop the abuse of families.

The light of my life Samantha was removed from my care and given to her father who made allegations of alcohol dependence and mental illness against me. The same father who had physically abused me for the 1st year of her life and went to jail for domestic violence. Im made to feel victimized all over again. It's not fair
Please stop this torture on families! It is exactly as everyone state's, completely corrupt and the parents are just shoved out of the way and treated like garbage. There is no hope and no matter what evidence you present the judge knows they will not give your child back. Its all fixed. God help us and the children please!
CPS and Law enforcement kidnapped our 3 kids. We want justice for what they did to us.
So far i have put together a Class-Action Lawsuit for 13 Families that have been damaged by CPS unlawful tactics of "legal Kidnapping" for profit...this R.I.C.O. activity has too stop now...CPS with the assistance of crooked Judges and over zealous armed Police are destroying our biological families at an alarming rate!...and yes; It is time we removed CPS from the profitable business of tearing loving non-offending families apart
CPS with the help of the police have taken all 3 of children with no evidence and with us providing 100s of pages of facts proving our innocents meant nothing to the judge. he even asked the prosecuting attorney where they were going to eat lunch when we went to recess and when they got back the judged seemed anoyed that he had to sit through our hearing and did not even deliberate on any of the evidence presented. He adjudacted all three to states custody within a second. Guilty until proven innocent and oh yeah the dont want to be bothered with facts. That only gets in the way of there money from selling off the children. Shame on all of them and even though they have money and power on this earth it only last 80 or 90 years but when they check off this planet hell is an eternity....
Yeah took my stepdaughter the the judge ask what evidence they had it was none .stepdaughter still in foster care
My kids were taken. Have not been able to see them. no one has taken my side of the story and it's been 6 weeks were is my justice. How can this system be so wrong but no one willing to see or fix this injustice system? How can a poor family fight for justice with no money and public defenders are working in the same system eating donuts laughing with the DA? I thought this was America?how will people want to fight for this country that's crooked with dirty politicians where are the real Americans who will stand up for what is right. Smh I will change my carrier to learn law to fight this unjustified system.
Children are being taken under false pretense or false allegations of abuse or neglect yet parents never receive any forms stating if the abuse is substantiated or unsubstantiated, which is misuse of a government investigation unit , basically workers imply a report has been made but the report is never filed and no records and children are being used to Misappropriated funds to service providers and relatives of case worker through placement of children.
I'm so sorry for the horrifying pain and fear you are having to endure.I had to move out of Chandler AZ as police & husband kept filing false allegations harassing i still endure. You gave me hope. Don''t give up..you are an admirable woman. Contact me if you need help or just to have someone to talk to.

Cps destroys happy families.
There needs to be closer attention and regulations applied to DCF workers.

These people are a disgraceful insult to the children they are sworn to protect.
Children are human beings. They are not a commodity to be bought, sold, traded, bartered, or handed to the highest bidder.
Fix the broken, biased, and corrupt system.
Instead of protecting kids, DPS profits from destroying them. This has got to stop.
They should have the same if someone called.on them
Families of america unite for our future our heritage. No one is perfect but that in no way gives the state the right to steal our children.
CPS is still abusive even if its official goal is not to remove all children from homes that come into its cross hairs. From the very beginning they cause trauma and pain to families, create turmoil and upset the balance of families weather or not the parents are together. My direct experience with these people is they are a court supported criminal enterprise.
My daughter was taken away from me for someone making a false report against me.I was found not guilty but is still fighting for custody of my child...Where is the Justice?
Demetria Herman and Jim Hire in Saunders County, NE should be arrested and locked up for life.
Our family are VICTIM'S OF CPS ABUSE OF POWER, INJUSTICE & CORRUPTION. Although, we have insurmountable factual evidence that WILL support & prove WITHOUT A DOUBT our serious accusation's against CPS & DHS Agencies we continue to struggle with having our story be heard & we don't have an unending bank account like these Government Agencies. Despite spending thousands of dollar's thus far there has been zero progress in our favor. Although, we have run out of money, we have not given up our fight to be heard with hopes of bringing Our 3 Precious Innocent Little Girl's Home while Exposing CPS at same time to help other Children & families also. PLEASE HELP US!! IT IS REAL!! DOES HAPPEN!! Will you be a Hero in this battle or will you pretend it is not going on??
