If state doesn't reunify grandparents should be given the children and not have to be a licensed foster home.

There is nothing more traumatizing to children and their loving parents than being separated by CPS! This happens much more in America than anywhere else in the world! Heartbreaking!
I feel that CPS abuses there power! They do not care for the child/children, they care about the money! Nor do they care about the truth - half of the CPS/Foster Workers only put what information they want into their forms! It should be mandatory that are their meeting rooms contain cameras in voice recording!!! So all evidence in documented!!!

Kaufman county CPS is the worst CPS. My 4 year was sexual abuse in foster care and they trade to blame me in my wife then sent my 4 year old to a mental hospital saying she was suicidal and we had to go 5 mths with out seeing are kids for something that happen in there care. why they sent my 4 year to the mental hospital to cover it up. And asked are case worker about the foster home and he tells us don't know what goes on in a foster home. Case went on for two years them closed them two mths later they came back with the same false allegations
CPS is the most negligent, incompetent and abusive agency I have ever had do deal with!! Yes, I have a CPS case pending on me. Since these monsters have came into mine and my childrens' life They have not followed the rules and have made decisions and continue to try to take action solely based on their personal goals, and not what is in the best interest of MY children. The CPS workers on my case have done nothing but lie and fabricate and falsely accusing me of putting my children in danger and considering me an "abusive" parent. The reasoning behind my case was some sort of sick twisted revenge my husbands ex-wife plotted. Now My family and I are having to live a nightmare. I truly believe there needs to be some sort of guidelines met in order to be a social worker. One being I think that it is important that the social worker has children of their own because I do not know how one could sit their and talk about what it means to protect a child when the case worker does not have a child of their own. Because if anyone is like myself, The moment my babies were born that was a magical moment a gift from God, and I want to protect my gifts (my children) so yes I believe Justice needs to be put back into Child Protective Services. These caseworkers spend too much time worrying about petty nonsense when they need to be worried about the children truly being abused rather than the money gained by snatching kids from loving homes. In addition to it takes away hard earned dollars of tax payers money to fund this agency to torture families to the breaking point.

Thank you for listening to my opinions and this is also my experience with CPS as of right now which is still a battle I am trying to fight and I will win this battle!!

I have done all the research that is available to public and some sources and in my county, those in cps court all know exactly what they are doing and its all for the money and the illusion of doing a job to "protect" the innocent. Its horrifying what they are doing. If this was being done in any other country, our govt. would be the first to send in the troops!
This is definitely about state agencies removing children on zero criminal charges to cash in on state and federal uncapped monthly money and bigger bucks for adoption. It is racketeering. ABSOLUTELY. This will be stopped one way or another.
The Kern County C.P.S. Dept. of Human Services worker Michele Dujhaz wrote me a letter in 2009 that placing the two children that I had been caring for over nine years would suffer from emotional trauma placing them with me. They were taken from their biological mother a close friend of mine. I had previously cared for them from ages 2-9 years old. The C.P.S. had no allegations or anything against me whatsoever.I was finger printed several times and also my home was C.P.S. approved for the girls to reside here with me as they had previously for seven years.They were eventually awarded custody by the Juvenile Court Judge Aspach to a foster mother here in Pine Mountain, CA. She eventually adopted them and moved to Ashland, Oregon. I haven't heard from them since they were removed by C.P.S. Recently they both contacted me on my facebook to inform me that their adopted mother was sexually, emotionally, mentally and physically abusing them. They were removed from her custody by the local police and home pending local charges against her. They are now in yet another foster home in Talent, Oregon. This sums up your foster care and adoption of children by C.P.S. in Kern County CA.. and across our nation. I have raised 2 sons sucessfully,, was a former L.A. County licensed foster father, ran a CA licensed community care facility for boys ages 12-18 for eight years previously, I have a clean record no anything, I am a Ph.D. psychologist, N.D.a naturopath, Cert biofeedback, neurofeedback therapist, a Cert. Drug & Alcohol Chemical Dependency Recovery Counseling Specialist, Ex U.S. Navy Honorably discharged veteran, I have many years of experience with children and their care. Yet with all of this they C.P.S. with their reckless, insane, non-senseless determination ruined the lives of two sweet innocent girls?? I intend to sue the State of CA. D.S.S. and the Kern County Human Services Dept./C.P..S. et al. The truth will always set you free. So I never-ever give up hope. I believe this injustice is grounds for abuse of the highest degree. C.P.S. and anyone that was involved in this tragic situation must be held accountable. We need to all or anyone that has been damaged and especially on behalf of the children illegally taken and abused come together and right it.. Money is the necessary thing to hire lawyers like Gloria Alrad et al. to represent us in a federal, or state court with law suits, class actions and individual actions.

I also think if CPS is removing a child the police officers involvef should take pictures of the child so CPS cant make up lies and say your child had a rash or something else.
i am going through a horrific time trying to get my son back after I voluntarily signed joint conservatorship for CPS to pay for my son's RTC. After three appeals with Tricare they told me it would be like having joint custody with a divorced parent but you are the primary conservator. I'm going to court to fight to release him from the State funded RTC that has only made my autistic child worse.
Statitically proven that more children are severely abused or killed through our current system than leaving them with their families, my children were no exception to this stastistic... CPS needs reform and it needs it now! This must stop, social workers are permitted to lie and falsify documents with absolutely no accountability and no regard to the harm they are doing to the children whose lives they have been entrusted with... Children are manipulated to support their agenda, parents are forced into admitting to things that never happened in an effort to comply out of fear they will never see their children again...it's so incredibly debestating to know that this is going on in America or for that matter anywhere in the world. It has to stop, efforts should be made to keep families together, statistics don't lie...it's time to put an end to the needless suffering that our broken system is putting these families through!
I am going thru cps and this is a nightmare my son autistic and they took all 5 of my kids and now they order the 2 babies put back in my care but refuse to give me my other 3 my kids have never had bruises and great attendance until cps became involved. Now my oldest daughter is 14 and serially active and keeps running away from placement
It's horrific enough when a multitude of persons employed by our Local, State and Federal governments are blatantly and so clearly covering, lying, cheating, disregarding and SWAPPING documents on the face of their very OWN Records in our Systems against our very own U.S. Citizens... but to snatch our children only for numbers and System Profits... to only IGNORE the ABUSE that even our very own Children are SUFFERING at the hands of STRANGERS within such a System of pure GREED... to DENY anything other with even ONE Child, but SO MANY CHILDREN in this Country... is over-the-top OUTRAGEOUS!! Yes, if it is not happening to you, it IS happening! Just LOOK!! Even the most ignorant person among us, CAN see it... Why can't YOU?? Signed, -Sickened, Saddened & Outraged
we need one for greenfield mass
I have been investigated on bogus hotline calls, my autistic son has been targeted and removed based on "history" not facts because of the bogus unfounded calls to the hotline, every time a call comes in they are here to investigate. THIS NEEDS TO STOP!!!!
Stop CPS child medical kidnappings now. Help parents keep their rights.
my son was shot in az. (home invasion) cps took my grandson while his dad was in the ambulance. then said it was because of his lifestyle even though he has never met the intruder. the man was arrested.still fighting to get him back. cps have more power than the FBI.
need to save abused and neglected children not the ones who are not in any danger from their loving families
Medical kidnapping is still kidnapping, and is a felony in every state.
they need to go after abused and neglected children not the ones that were in a happy home
Injustice against one American is injustice against all Americans. Help us put the Justice back into Child Protective Services and get them focused on finding and saving abused children. It's time we removed them from the profitable business of tearing loving non-offending families apart...
The extent to which children are being ripped from their families is not only alarming, it's a disgrace. The fundamental design of child protective services has fallen by the way side and has been replaced with greed and power of abuse. This must stop.
Stop abusing children by taking them out of their loving homes and putting them with foster parents who are mentally incapable of bringing love and basic needs to a child. You practice injustice instead of justice. Get it right now before affecting more families!
Stealing children form non abusive homes is a crime against humanity. Medical kidnapping is wrong and it needs to be stopped.
I pray for the souls of the offenders. May God give them truth conviction and healing.
CPS needs to get back to the point of protecting children, not putting them in dangerous positions!
Stealing children form non abusive homes is wrong and a crime against humanity. Stealing them for medical purposes to conduct medical experiments on children is wrong. Hundreds if not thousands of these children are right here in America. Due process needs to be restored to the family court system and the children that have been kidnapped from loving homes need to be returned. the financial incentives for removing children needs to be taken away. DCF and CPS workers earn a salary. They should never receive a bonus for removing any child from any home abusive or not. Far fewer children would be getting removed from parental custody if there were no financial incentive to do so. Parents need to be allowed to make decisions medically for their children without DCF involvement. If a Doctor has a problem with a second opinion then maybe another Dr. should examine the child to determine if a procedure is medically necessary. To many Dr.'s think they are God and can do no wrong. There are many children out there that have been removed from parental custody for simply asking for a second opinion. This is wrong and needs to be corrected.
Stealing children from non-abusive homes is not only a crime, but a horrific act of inhumanity. Children are not assets of the state, they belong to and with their loving families. For the care and protection on actual abuse cases, protevtive services must be held accountable to the fullest and most serious extent of the law. It is an atrocitie that families should live in fear for the safety of their children from a system which is supposed to be in place to provide protection and safety
I have young adults, and I have met to many children abused by the system over the years, too many children have been victimized by these agencies, and the steeling of children for medical purposes has got to be the biggest and worst, yet.. Make these agencies work properly for our people... Perhaps it might be prudent to give them a history lesson as well... World history, the decimation and oppression in other countries that did so much immeasurable damage over the past 50 years to the people who suffered through it. The experiments of the holocaust. The Cold War.. All good examples of conditions we want to avoid... Children need protection and so do families, but it appears that the bad guys are turning out to be you... The government, because you are passing laws enforcing and allowing these agencies to abuse our people for a series of industries that have no human conscience, and sustain themselves by feeding on our people.. Starting with the children first... It's time for you to stand up and do what's really the most important reason you hold office, the care and well being of your people... Thank you for hearing my thoughts on this... Mom.
My son was adopted out by cps without any abuse at home.
