I am appalled by a system that can profit from dismantling households. Family courts should be required to show the same burden of proof (without a reasonable doubt) in front of a jury of their peers (or in front of a person who wont profit from the desion being made) as the same as in criminal court before they can remove the child. If abuse of any form is truely happening there should be criminal charges brought fourth. However, many of these stories of cps stealing children have no founded evidence that would hold up in criminal court. so why are loosing their children? Because cps can get away with anything if it done for the safety of child. Requardless of what constutitional rights of ours they trample on. For those of you who really want to know the depths of this evil organization need to research nancy Schaefer from the Georgia State senate.
To this day, I am still fighting to get my babies home and it feels like I'm fighting a losing battle daily. I've done everything I was supposed to do and they are still against me.
I called on my ex husband for allowing my children access to drugs and alcohol. Everything went good until I got pregnant 4 months into the case. They placed my kids in a drug house that had been raided twice, filed false police reports on my fiance, stalked us, threatened us, threatened my ex and our children while they were at school. It got so bad I had to leave the county. A year later they have put me on supervised visits at my ex discression with him supervising without a case even open!!! And get this... if I want to see my 7 year old autistic daughter, I have to bring my 11 month old son back into the county. There has been no court and there isnt even a case opened against me or my ex.

We are a foster-to-adopt household with several children that were placed with us over a year ago. The kids' social workers have taken many situations out of context and spun them into false allegations (at least one a month for over a year). The social workers, county counsel, and the kids' counsel petitioned to remove our precious kids, but after 24 trial hours to object the removal the judge eloquently place the lies made by the county back into context and invalidated all of the allegations made by CPS. The social workers still have their jobs and free to harass us and other families without any accountability for the damages they are causing.

In the late 80's, CPS was instrumental in putting an innocent man in prison for years, forcing him now to be on the registery. They did No investigation, told the court things that were not true, again, no investigation! I believe they are an out of control nightmare for any child. CPS does not protect, they take a child, then put that same child in more harms way by putting them in foster care! My family was destroyed over CPS's inability to do a proper investigation, and to make up stories which only serves them, not a child!
My grandson is in the system with no proof of any abuse. He needs his mother NOW. Please help.
my step daughters children were taken from her and given to an ex spouse who could not pass a drug test and given to him anyway.a dirty shame
My brother and I were foster children in the 50s and 60s.We were abused. At my age at 60 years old I was diagnosed with ptsd.After I was diagnsed, I thought about it and realize that I must have had it as a child. I would cry myself to sleep being afraid the foster family were going to hurt me physically.My brother died from cancer obtaining it from agent orange in viet nam.I ran away from the foster home at 15 years old. My brother joined the army as soon as he was old enough.He had told me he was happy to fight to get rid of his anger from our childhood.Because of our childhood being so traumatic, it has really ruined my life. I want to have a voice for all foster children from my terrible experience as a foster child.Cps had so many faults. They were looking for a place for us to live. Our mother had 11 children and were all taken away. We were all spread out and because of this, all of us as siblings, have never had a chance to bond. Foster care can be such a difficult thing for a child to go through. No steady home and could never show love. As my brother lived in the foster home I think for 13 years,we never had a hug also never heard the words,' I love you'.Therefore,this has altered my relations with my children because I never knew how to show love.Not having a loving mother or loving father to be there to talk to was unknown to my brother and me.Please I want to have a voice to protect foster chidren that they are placed in a home with people with warm and loving hearts something that we were not blessed to have. Trust me, this would last a life time how a child is raised.

CLEAN UP DCF AND PROTECT OUR CHILDREN!
You Reap What You Sow
The basic nature of God's Justice:
GALATIANS 6: 7-9 (KJV)
7: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8: For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9: And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

THE DEFINITIONS:
1. Everything that you do has repercussions. It comes back to you one way or another.
2. You cannot escape the consequences of your actions. What you do comes back to you.
3. You will see the long-term effects of your actions.
4. KARMA - The total effect of a person's actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person's existence, regarded as determining the person's destiny, especially, in his next incarnation.
5. What goes around comes around.
6. Your actions all have consequences. Don't ever be fooled into thinking that your actions don't have consequences. Don't think you can get away with bad choices even if you don't seem to get caught. Remember verse seven tells us that God cannot be mocked. He sees it all. You reap what you sow.
Watch the way you live your life because you reap what you sow.
My kid taken in the state of MD for reaching out for mental health services. I was denied these services. CPS did not give us in home services nor preventative services. They went behind my back and took my kid. Then they lied in court saying I was unable and unwilling to attend to his mental health issues.
My dear friends have had their 3 beautiful children taken from them. They have jumped through every hoop the dcf has placed in front of them, and still their children have not been returned. MA needs some serious work done. I am terrified that one day an accident may take my future child away. This is not acceptable we must protect children and families.
My 3 innocent children have been removed twice. There are numerous false accusations that I have been accused of per DCF. I'm being denied visitation although I still have my parental rights. They trying to force adopt my children out. My boys who are 4&5 yrs old lost their father 3 days after Xmas in 2012. My daughter is only a yr old & her father verbally & physically abused me so severely that I was hospitalized at 27wks of my pregnancy. Mine , as well as my children's constitutional ammendment rights have been seriously violated. I understand that there are kids who have been abused and/or neglected, mine have not been.

My 3 children have been in care for a year now, because my daughter sustained an accidental injury. Since the type of injury is only seen as accidental in 3% of cases, DCF just doesn't believe it's an accident. DCF has pushed us for a year to say we intentionally hurt our children. We've had glowing reports from all professionals involved, including our pediatrician, early intervention, nurses, a psychologist (DCF made us get psych evals), individual therapists, a court investigator, a parental aid, teachers, family and friends. Nobody has a bad thing to say, and yet we're still here. I've exposed a ton of lies that my social worker told, she is now gone from the office. My 3 children were placed together, my oldest was assaulted twice while in their first foster home. He has since been moved but my two youngest remain in that first home and they are too young to tell me what their bruises are from. They need an overhaul done, the system was put in place to protect children not destroy innocent families!
Hello, I live in the city of Schenectady, NY. I have had my problems with this agency and find some of them to be on power trips for the most part.
The state need to fix CPS in Michigan they are taking children away from loving parents that love them dearly and kids are being abused in the state hands and none thing is being done about it please fix it thank you.
My children's father ATE MY FACE! I was court ordered to do visitation- that was the result of it. Cps had been involved several times prior yet visitation was still awarded. Now, CPS has trespassed and put me through a living hell. They deem me neglectful for following a court order. They took me before the courts and had all sorts of illegal practices going on. For example: the referee was practicing from the bench. Illegal! Wrong! My court appointed attorney told me and I quote " Do whatever CPS wants or your children will be taken from you and suffer brain damage!" My case is a severe example of injustice, demographic targeting, and incompetence on the agencies behalf! I am a college educated woman. This is wrong and I will not stand for it. This incident happened in Jan. and due to incompetence on the behalf of cps it was not even a real concern for cps nor given any kind of actual (wrongful) attention until May! My face was eaten! I'd say that is a warrent for concern! It is proveable through police reports, prosecution, and hospital records. Why was something not done immediately on their behalf? Moreover, why was the case opened in the name of myself, the mother? It should have been opened against the perpetrator of violence, the father. In addition, during the absence of cps I pressed charges, got a ppo, and had my custody amended to protect my children. I was told it was too hard to strip rights. So, I asked for him to have counseling, and drug testing, provided he did services he be allowed to see our child one supervised hour a week. That was awarded by the court. Cps took me back to court and had a new ruling put in place that he no longer has to do services before he can see her! I thought the principal of this agency was to protect children. They should not be taking proventitive and protective measures away from my child. I spoke with the director asking that he explain himself. He apologized and told me that he would make sure that my child's father did not see her if he were under the influence of drugs. I asked if their agency would make him partake in drug testing. His response was no, there are tells when someone is on drugs. There is not always a tell. I don't want to chance my child's safety on someone's best judgment as to whether or not her father is on Meth. Moreover, an apology from the director serves as no protection to my child. These types of issues need attention.
On a separate note I would like to add that I have two children. And two children's father's. The first child's father is a sex offender. Not an I urinated in the street type of sex offender- an I possessed child pornography sex offender. Cps is fine with him having visitation as well. My daughter was molested while in his care. They still did nothing. And have no problems with it. They told me is was a police matter not a cps matter. Couldn't those agencies have teamed up to do something about this? They are supposed to be protecting children. All I ha
My niece has had her children taken unlawfully just 2 months ago!!! there was NO cause to take her children, it was a case of "getting even" with her and her mother because someone didn't like the way they were talked to. They knew this was a sure fire way to hurt them terribably! NOW my niece has don everything the court told her she would have to do to get her kids back and the CPS agents sit in court and lie about receiving her documents she had to sumit, laugh at her and she had her proof in her hand sitting on the stand and the judge refused to see it!!! she had taken, faxed and hand delivered her proof numerous times to CPS and the judge doesn't care nor wants to actually see her proof . this is in Perry County MS. I have a very dear friend in Forrest county MS. going through the same thing, only they have been fighting this 2 years!!! Both of these families have special needs childred. my nephew is in remission as of now, but my friends daughter has a brain tumor. Until her and her sister were taken, she went to the doctor every 1/2 months to be checked. She hasn't seen a doctor in TWO YEARS!!!! CPS claims to not know anything about a medical condition even though her parents had to submit all medical records to CPS!! THIS SYSTEM IS A DISGRACE AND NEEDS TO SERIOUSLY NEED TRAINED WORKERS. It is more of a he said/she said system that thinks they are Gods and don't have to do anything lawful. And you know another disgraceful thing about this? NOT ONE GOVERNER, ATTORNEY GENERAL, CONGRESSMAN, SENATOR GIVES A FLIP!!!!!
we are taking care of my girlfriend's 1yr old grandaugher after her daughter's boyfriend attacked her ,but he is getting nothing out of this in court .the doughter was put in physic ward to be evaluated the boyfriend who attacked her and attemped to choke her is running around scott free,we also found out that he beat his last girlfriend too.but we have to pay the pric for CPS and their incompetent workers ..I did find on a site "CPS and the secret dirty trick's" they break the law more than you think.18 dirty tricks.never let them gain entry to your home unless they have a search warrant.it's against your constitional right's. find an attorney who hates CPS. and/or claim grandparent's righ's.to name a few.let's get the law in it's place.the children have to pay the price.THIS IS NOT THE WAY GOD INTENDED LIFE TO BE.
CPS is niothing more than a snoop station for people upset with innocent folks and accusing them of child abuse =- Overall a total joke - seems to take away your rights as an US Citizen
My son may be scared for life because CPS removed him from my care and placed him in foster care for a year because my mother passed away. I was told from the beginning that I did nothing wrong so why did they take my child? The only reason I got him back was because the judge finally saw through the lies told by CPS and ordered him home against all objections. We were discriminated against because I am on SSI and could not afford a good lawyer. The whole system is corrupt. I caught the caseworker in a lie and was told by my lawyer that I cannot accuse the government of lying. How is that justice?
My children were taken away for no reason other than CPS hated my current wife and my ex came down and lied and kissed butt. Since being with my ex, my son has been shot in the back by neighborhood kids while unsupervised and my daughter has been molested by another boyfriend of my ex. CPS didn't do any investigation into my ex's mental illnesses and her doctor supported inability to take care of the kids. She was the better smooger and gained control. CPS is worthless, even judges in the Sunset Commission report said it will never change. If the foundation of a building is weak, you need to tear it down and start over. IF you continue to build upon a weak foundation, the building will collapse. IT is just a matter of time before CPS collapses under it's own weight of guilt, lies and deception. The real question is, how many families will suffer before it does?
I was in a foster home for 4 1/2
Years and was abused by foster parents. The would take EVERYTHING out of my room, and make me sleep on the floor with out pillows and a blanket i have a big scars ( mutiple ) on my right leg. I was thrown aginst walls. This isnt how it is soupost to be. This is not right. My mother is a very fit mother. And they took me
I don't know where to begin except something needs to be done to help strengthen families not rip them apart. Please reform is a must!!
CPS in in Richland Washington took my kids for no reason spoke to them without me are making false allegations and unwilling to give them back no matter what we have done as parents we've done everything they've asked and they come up with other reasons.
I need help iam on ssi my children hey ssi and the first thing the state did was taketh erected money plz plz help with they lie to take children away
I want my grandson back! Charges were a result of a malicious intent. All false!
I will be sueing the mandated reporter, as there is just too much evidence that it was malicious intent. The CPS social worker - a pure sociopath. When these two forces come together - you are cooked. I got one call from CPS, put down the phone and called my attorney. The illegal and criminal treatment my Family received was what I have read about and it unfolded just as countless parents have described. The CPS workers report - fiction - and for added measure they cut and paste fake 'molestation' abuse and dates and people that we have never heard of. Their job is to make parents look bad - whatever thar is. One 5 minute call withnthe agent - lawyer twisted and just plain nonsense. Luckily it was only one call - the lawyer was always present after that. And you could tell this social worker was an expert at framing parent And getting that revenue in!! It never matters how innocent you are - the objective from the start was not child safety or how we were as parents - it was about 'inventory' and my beautiful child was targeted! By God they were going to get that warrant by hook or crook. Having a lawyer made CPS even more determined. I'd write more, but it was and is still so disturbing, I can hardly keep the contents of my stomach down.

It is all about money, not child welfare. The United States is "not land of the free" and about "justice for all." not with Juvenial dependcy court that is for sure. If it is stapled to the psychopathic CPS worker's report - the judge admits it into evidence. The jusges are in on it too. Legally stollen kids put their own kids through college.

The US must change this now!! Poor lion hearted Senator Nancy Schaefer - she and her husband lost their lives trying to stop this beast! Why? It goes straight to the top and she was going to expose it!

We must implement real change! Problem is - there are not enough Nancy Schaefers and too many people who grew up believing 'greed is good.' and they are willing to trade their souls for money - and this is big business: foster kids being farmed out to big pharma for drug trials, adopted parents choosing a child before the investigation even begins, powerful pedophiles putting in their orders, foster kids that just go missing (poof! Nobody knows where they went? Yes they do - child pornography and snuff films that is where). And if you are a poor young single Mom that want to give birth at home (medical neglect! They'll take that baby the moment it is born). The list of horrors goes on.

Save our children before we have a nation of nothing but walking wounded and a vicious cycle of misery and dysfunction.

I am tired of sleeping with one eye open. This is not freedom!!

These people are pure evil, no conscience of the trauma to child or parents. They should be prosecuted for the suffering they cause the children, not to mention the families that are powerless to protect their own children from them. Pure evil!!!
my older 2 children were taken by CPS in march of last year i was never informed by them i found out a month later from my family who he contacted for bail money they refused to give me my children when i went up to get them and they are still refusing to give me my children
My 2 children was wrongfully taken from me
My 2 children was wrongfully taken from me
These people have too much power to kidnap, lie, and break laws. They need to be stopped! They claim to do what's in the best interest of the child, but in most cases, what they do is bring trauma to children and families that did not previously exist.
They took my two children from my mother's house while I was at work and then my boys were severely abused in foster care
I'm trying to fight to stop my three grandbabies from being adopted next month .since C.P.S didn't give my daughter a chance they removed them cause she has a mental problem and cause she didn't have a house of her own . her caseworker didn't help her get any transportation for anything that was required from my daughter her lawyer didn't even to his job especially when it was time to appeal her case and at the time my kids were removed cause of an accident stabbing that didn't take place at my house. it would have been prevent if the police in my town would have did their job so that's the only reason I wasn't able at the to get them and instead cps is letting a family adopted them that not related and has broken laws like taking them to México having their pictures on facebook , having them separated from their baby sister and telling courts and cps they have them in the same placement
