Went through my kids being taken by cps 2 times because of my ex husband. Now they are in grandma's custody because of all of his lies he told cps. Elizabeth benadetto (betsy) lied in court and it's bull something needs done. Even my boyfriend agrees you shouldn't be allowed to be a cps worker unless you have children and wasn't abused.

This is happening in Schenectady, NY withmy own children.
Cps is a joke and needs to be completely dismantled and rebuilt from the ground up with people who are qualified to actually correctly to assess if a child if being abused or not. I have done my fair share of research into the background of cps history and its disgusting enough to give even the most heartless or the toughest nightmare.
My family is going through it too. My sister in law and brother had there son taken away because the damn hospital in Texas can't get there story straight and they think my sister in law abused him and he's only 4 months old. I have gone through it too with my son. He has special needs and most of the calls regarding him have been made by his dad or his paternal grandmother just to disrupt my household and try to have him taking away from me.
I am currently dealing with Texas CPS. They wrongfully ripped my grandson away from his parents during a CPS raid at a hospital in Texas. We are going for temporary custody so we can get him out of Texas and he'll be with family
I am willing to rally and attend ANY movement you are able to create to get an overhaul of CPS. I have absolutely no issues with even going and attending a hearing with congress, any state level employee anything you can get. I fully support action against this disgusting government agency. My email is attached, I live in north Carolina, if you wish to contact me I will be for as much assistance as humanly possible and I find it extremely important to band together as many people as possible to call for this reform, IMMEDIATELY before a single child is further damaged
I have to many. Yesterday in a Mattapan. Playground. They found a child at 6pm. Barefoot,on a trycickle. . T hey guessed he was 2 or 3 . He spent the night with DCF and still all night no one reported him missing. I guess this morning someone from finally did. He was brought back to his family. I'm glad DCF doesn't have him
I have had an Investigator.and to assessment workers,in my home, because ny grandson
Snuck out the back yard.with us close behind. I live on a tiny street ,and he went three houses down. I only have six houses VC on my street. I have a video I took of my niece driving My granddaughter Jeep down the street. It shows u s ,and not it o ne car went by,and he stayed on the same side of the street. My neighbor if 29 years. Came up the two Single family homes with him. Saying I had one of him. She said don't worry a different neighbor brought mine home everyday. I know I was one of them. . It was the talk of the neighborhood. Do you think one of my kids would have gotten their 2 year old back. After he was out .in s neighborhood where there are shootings every night. God give me my grandchildren. How far they take two beautiful infant's.
This******is happining to me as we speak, they stole my two boys ga-nesha Hamilton and the other agents name is jree
I was granted guardianship of my 2 yo granddaughter nov. 2015. Lilly Hay. She was happy and healthy. Scored well above average on every test dcf and cps made me take her to. Never one bad report. Even the g a l, Shannon Dorn, said " lilly is happy and safe. I see no issues here. I need to focus on the children who really need me. I will come one more time, then request our case be closed". I was so happy. Then even better, i found a great job. The cps worker Danielle Geiger asked if i wanted daycare. I said no, lilly spends the day with her uncle, swimming, going to parks, playing with neighbors kids. I dont like kid kennels. That was strike one. Lilys mom was not allowed to live with me. So i had to tell my 18 year old recovering addict daughter that she had to live on the streets, try to stay clean, try to stay safe, i love you. No other family here, limited income, she relapsed, went to jail. Strike two. Ok, bills are piling up, i get a second job, going to be late, get pulled over, find out i had not paid a ticket and license was no good, got detained for 3 hours. Strike 3. They took my baby. Not for abuse, not for neglect, but because i will not sign a "safetyplan" that said i knowingly put lilly in danger by driving. A car that she was not in. Ohhh, and did i mention how they lied about visits, documents, concerns they supposedly had all along, but were never once documented, or even mentioned to me. The g a l lied. Anthony something. He said he had come to my home on many ocasions and i would not open the door. Yet a coworker of his said she was going to request closure. 3 weeks of pure hell finally get to see my baby. I almost fainted. She lost so much weight, she was sick, had a bruise on her face, and back in diapers. Her little lip curled under when she saw me, then she just went blank. It was 45 minutes of agony. Part of me wanted to beg and plead for her return and part of me wanted to end the very exsistence of the person who initiated the removal. 2 more grueling weeks. Lillys uncle went alone this time. She is still sick. Can barely open her right eye. Coughing up mucas, chest congested. Why arent they bringing her to the hospital???? My baby is suffering. My daughter is out of jail, doing very good because she is living at home where she has love and support. I cry myself to sleep everynight, asking how an agency who is supposed to protect innocent children can put this little girl through this. I cant eat, cant sleep, wake up everyday searching for a reason to not step infront of a bus. Then i picture lilly, how she calls me "Wubba", and would fall asleep in my arms everynight listening to itsy bitsy spider. If there is anyone, at all, who has any advice, recomendations, anything, please help, please.
INCENTIVE monies need to be reallocated to supporting biological families. To family preservation and to the education of families.
This agency and it's methods needs to be investigated!! And CPS workers need to start being held accountable for making up stories and lying in a court of law!! When will it end!!!!
Paige Cummings loose her position & be brought up on charges back from 2008 my two boys Sebastian & migelangelo alderman were removed not even from me & cps lied in court falsified paperwork & promised me I get my boys back until last court hearing & decided because I had smoked marijuana I wasn't worthy enough to get my boys back & took my right away what a bunch of b.s.
My grandson was unlawfully removed from my residence without any evidence of abuse or neglect. He was 10 months old. We got him back 9 months later but we are still being threatened and bullied.

I have been battling cps for a year now to return my children they were removed because I was domestically abused and have been kept from me all based on lies assumptions and false accusations. They revictimize the victim and offer no help or support
This is not right !!!!!! They need to worry about kids that have no food Bc there parents r out buying drugs instead of this family who truly cares about the baby and twins .I will be praying for this family.
I'm signing because my children are in foster care because of CPS in Mobile Al and they are refusing to let any of my family have custody
Im signing because I have a niece and nephew in foster care that ive been trying to get custody of and Dhr in Mobile Alabama has done nothing but give me and my family the run around they dnt return phone calls, they lie to your face and seem to find any reason possible to keep those kids from their biological family I caught them in lies myself the first case worker told me the case was transferred to a new caseworker but 2 months after he told me that he filed a petition with the court to terminate my sisters rights I did everything asked of me to try to get those kids and dhr could not give me any legit reason as to why I cant get custody I passed background and home checks an all they could
I am dealing with this corrupt system now because of a ****ed off baby daddy, lying to ppl about me and my kids...
A family friend had their child removed and me being a state employee of Texas tried to get the child placed with me, but because I had an unable to determine with CPS in 2009 I was not eligible. I am an investigator for Dept. of Aging and Disability and because I forced the issue on getting court orders so they couldn't make me jump threw there hoops I was black balled. All because my exes mistress filed false complaint.
My kids my world my everything were taken from me on 06/09/2016 ,I have been battling CPS in Atascosa County in Texas since the beginning of May, they literally went to the extreme of putting out a warrent for my arrest and having a county officer arrest me and did not take the kids that day but the cps worker showed up just to watch me get arrested and did not take the kids till the next day when i was on my way to pick them up from their grandparents house and as i was getting there, they saw me and drove away with my kids. They are cruel monsters that take advantage of their job titles. It is hard for a parent that is low income and has a crimanal background especially when they use that to their advantage there is no justice!!! I pray someone hear out people in need of help especially times like these and when all parents can think of and live for is their children!!!! It is so sad to fight the government workers when they are trying so hard to steal your children away to what extent is ENOUGH!!!!
CPS Needs reform!
Bob Brady please help you knew my late father: Nicky Chieppa sr 66th st Overbrook ....I am having issues and being taken to court from CYS in Delaware County pa,
My son was taken by cps on Oct. 8 2011. The principal of his school called and was taken directly from school. My son has has asp ethers syndrome and other mental disabilities. CPS claimed that my husband and I did not get him proper treatment. Our son was under the care of a very prominent psychiatrist at that time who had 45 years of experience. Juvenile court sent his Dr. 2 subpoenas but refused to let him give a testimony! Well we just got him back 4 years later now that he is 18. Our son was sent to several state run facilities and a foster home where he was sexually assaulted by an older boy and was abide by the foster father. My son now has ptsd and other issues that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life. My husband and I tried everything to get him back to no avail. I tried to make this as short as possible but there is so much more I could write about this.
Babies are not paychecks. Our kids are people too. Cps and the system seem.to recognize them.as $$$$. And that's not ok. Also, foster homes should be randomly checked up regularly. Children who are put into foster care should be interviewed weekly without the supervision of the foster family.
Get up stand up don't give up the fight
I was targeted as non offending parent living in a domestic violence shelter when cps entered my room without consent and used threats and harassment to coherse me into voluntarily placing my children with my abuser against my wishes. I was added to the case based on unfounded allegations after several complaints that cps had not. contacted witness. Obtained medical reports of injuries to my daughter and refused to answer my phone calls. The cps caseworker never signed or presented me with any paperwork and mandated that my abuser supervise children with my children despite fears for my safety. I have audio recordings of cps misconduct and still have not been reunited with my children. catbirdsongs@gmail.com
I agree with this petition 100% stop the cps corruption and modern day human trafficking of our children. Thank you.
Dakota County MN cps is corrupt. Hastings MN juvinile court is corrupt. And public defenders are corrupt.
cps is a joke. my 2 year old is being neglected and abused by her mother. and i have proof. they rejected calls from the police and doctors. and find reasons why its fine to be a bad mom. i called everyone to get help but cps puts up road blocks at every turn. she cant keep a stable home. the police found marijuana on my daughters clothing and cps rejected the call. the new live in boyfriend she had overdosed and died in her home. and they say its ok. they refused to give me the records i have asked for over and over. the mother told the cps worker she was taking drugs and driving the wrong way down a one way street with my daughter in the car. they didnt do anything about it. no police report. NOTHING. this has to end.
Texas CPS removed my children and forced my to sign my rights over to my cousin to cover up the molestation accusations against my step mother.
Now...the accused molester is being allow to have visits with my children and I am not able to see or protecte them.
Now I am vigorously trying to find a way to get my story out there to try to help others from having to go through the same thing.
If anyone knows any one that may have any legit advice. My family would greatly appreciate it.
