The system is so flawed and many CPS staff enjoy tearing up families and find ways to keep children from kinship care as well. The children taken develop anxiety and PTSD which the agency then says happened in the home and they make up trauma to substantiate the mental anguish these children experience when separated from their family. They create mental illness issues that can last a lifetime.

Cps is the most corrupt organization in America and it's process is done all in the name of money and is destroying families lives with no real regard for the CHILDREN.
I agree something must be done to save our children
Cps of Snohomish county placed my child with a habitual offender who mentally and physically abused him. I was made to complete several classes, psy eval, and was separated from my child unnessarly. This system caused pain and grief while paying social workers salaries at our expense. I am against CPS in Washington state!
I was told by a Broomfield Colorado CPS Suporvisor that the Police Report that stated my minor child fear for his safety because his father was drunk and going to drive with him, was really just bad parenting. And the bottle of water with Vodka in it was not a threat to his safety. ADAMS County had already determined that it warranted investigation but it was in the wrong county. Broomfield was condesending and told me I just need to take it to court.
I guess I will just have to wait for one of my children to get into a wreak for them to take me serious. Utter Disgust!!!
CPS and Washington state have done more damage than good to my family, they took my aunt's exaggerated version of the truth and ran with it trying to destroy my career and housing that my other children depend on, my son attacked me, I defended myself; I'm facing a felony assault charge.... even though my son has a documented history of attacking me...
Petition for involuntary termination of parental rights of the mother, nathalie dibenedetto
( I will only write the most atrocious parts)

Grounds for termination: 3- the children have NOT been adjudicated dependent. Children were sheltered from the parents on 2/19/16

The mother has engaged in conduct toward the children that demonstrates the continuing involvement of the parent in the parent-child relationship threatens the life, safety, well-being, or physical, mental, or emotional health of the children irrespective of the provision of services, pursuant to 39.806(1)(c), Florida Statutes, in that:
A. The mother has orchestrated the removal of the children a third time and shows a complete an cutter disregard for the emotional well-being and safety of the children.

B. The mother has an extensive history with the department ... St. John's county case DP14-14 on March 6, 2014 the children were removed from the mother and placed with the father due to her "attempted suicide" (*personal note, hospital records state I consistently denied attempted suicide and took too many of my anxiety meds) ongoing mental health concerns (*i have 6-7 evaluations from THEIR mental health professionals with NO DIAGNOSIS) a failed diversion case (*this document was informally signed outside of court at a library and sent via email, I did not violate the signed document. Another document has surfaced, with non matching signatures and even partial images of a line under some signatures, where they had been cut from a piece of lined paper, and attached to this document which happened to be unlined, however even the forged document was never violated). On April 17, 2014 the department voluntarily dismissed the case without prejudiced due to [the parents divorce]

In St. John's. County case DP14-55 on September 13 (*12th, these people are idiots) 2014 the children were again removed from both parents and placed with a non relative DUE TO THE PARENTS LIVING TOGETHER (there was NOTHING THAT SAID WE COULD NOT!). .... [more nonsense not of significance]. Mother did not substantially comply with tasks in her case plan. (*they claim I never provided them with a lease agreement, which I did, and is nonsense anyway bc I have lived in a property owned by my dad for 12 years now.). [more nonsense]. Mother continues to exhibit erratic and disturbing behavior in the presence of the children. (*fails to specify or give 1 example...

5. The mother has on 3 or more occasions had these children placed in out of home care, and the conditions that led to the children's out of home placement were CAUSED BY THE MOTHER (*ex husband moves back into my home with children! my fault? Third removal I had a black eye and busted lip which they are claiming I did to myself even thought his knuckles were cut and scratched)

6. Adoption is the least restrictive means to achieve permanency for the children based on the following: The children WOULD NOT BE ADOPTED DUE TO THE FAT
My two children were wrongfully taken by Iowa DHS when I turned my ex husband in for abusing them. Our so called pathetic government needs to be shut down before they destroy any more families.
Lawless genocidal government needs to be put down ASAP
I lost my four children. I had two girls and two boys and they separated them. It was okay to them because they lived in the same town and would see each other. However, families moved and they hardly know each other now. I never dropped a dirty UA. Did everything they asked. They wanted me to do another inpatient treatment and I couldn't understand for what already did an intensive prison 120 shock treatment and a year of after care plus classes. I'm now in college. Still drug free, got a promising career. See my boys on occasion and my girls got abused in their adopted home but they kept them there. My family was torn and shouldn't have been.
Because CPS (DHS) in Iowa took my two grandchildren away from me, but let me, adopt their half-sister who is no blood relative to me. False allegations and so much corruption and then they put these two little girls in a completely different culture and their sister and I cannot see them. They destroyed three little girls’ lives. Before they were involved these three girls were like three peas in a pod.
Our Children are NOT For Sale!!!
Under any name they are ruthless destroyers of families and should all burn in hell
They took my baby, after using a service plan designed for failure against us, it had so many daily classes we both lost our jobs then we not financially 'fit'. They adopted him to the fosters who wanted him from day one, they changed his name. The case worker was rewarded with a $6000 bonus for seeing that he was adopted to non relatives, STOP TITLE lV FUNDING FOR TEARING FAMALIES APART, fund family prservation equally, or greater if you use statistics which show repeatedly and conclusively that kids are better off in troubled homes than foster homes where they are 6 times more likely to be beaten to death, 5 times more likely to be raped, etc.
They stole my white newborn son, not becuase the hospital called, because they did not, a ex called to get back at me, and they ran with it, lied in court, then failed to inform me when the court hearings were. They adopted him out even with all grandparents, aunts uncles and cousins begging to be his permanent home, and all being wonderful family homes.
Cops has clearly violated people's civil rights including myself and something needs to be done on a local state and federal level and be addressed these people clearly will violate people's civil liberties till something is done
NC is removing children from loving, nurturing homes and placing them in the home with the abuser. This needs to stop. Children have rights. Protect the children from the abuser
NC corruption out of control. Save our children and give back parental rights!!
CPS in lakeview, oregon has torn my family completely apart for no reason. They came into my home and said my fiance and I were abusing one of our kids. Now the three kids that are in foster care are not in the same house and also to youngest which is a year old is being abused in foster care. And now we had to sign over out newest daughter 2 weeks old to my fiances mom so that she didn't get abused too.
CPS destroys me many different ways. As a child I was abused mentally, physically and emotional. CPS failed to listen to me, my witnesses or other victims. Instead they brushed the abuse under the table. Years later my step nephew you would be place by CPS in the home of my sexual abuser. My husband and I would also deal with CPS harassing us when husband got custody of his nephew. The eventually took his nephew from our home accusing us of abuse and neglect. No witnesses or stacks of evidence we had would be used. Charges on me word were dropped after I Sat 4 days in jail month of court hearing. My husband received no charges in the court of law but they badgered him to sign right over. Even though all charges have been dismissed CPS still holds then dismissed charges over our heads and the parents of AJ. We have lots of evidence and witnesses that we were loving fit caregiver.
They harassed me for no reason... Never taken my kid's. But like to show up to bug me for no reason.. I work.. I am fully sober parent and have always have been and never spank my kids... And only due to the fact that I am a struggling parent with a fulltime job. They waste peoples time.
CPS/KVC and the foster mother from day one have tried to adopt our our children! KVC and Jennifer Hagg promised the foster mother Mary Tye, the children from day one. They immediately changed my babies names and we didn't know what was happening until Mary finally confessed. We are still fighting it!! Help us!

Need to check into Lake County in Lakeview, Oregon
i'm fighting to get my son back and i've read alot of the stuff in the reports and alot is a lie and wrong i want my son back he is my miracle child since i was 23 i thought i couldn't have kids because i've tried then march 2012 i found out i was pregnant my son is my miracle
I do fully feel like false allegations should be reprimanded. My child's father has his little "friends" and family to call CPS for every little thing. Yet all have been negative findings. It's just his way of trying to belittle me and try and get custody. He did the same to my daughters older siblings mother.
They never gave me a chance to be a mom.
I am also a victim of cps. If anyone wants to hear my story please feel free to contact me at 4582050774
This has been happening in the state of Iowa for over 20+ yrs perhaps even longer. These children that were removed from their loving non abusive homes are growing up feeling unloved, issues with abandonment, depression and believe in these lies because it says so on paper. These are our children, our future, and they are growing up with mental health disorders they most likely wouldn't have had if left with their families that love them! This had been going on way to long, it's time to stop these monsters that use our children to line their pockets for their own greediness. This is not "for the best interest of our children!" These overzealous cps/dhs workers are ruining peoples lives with lies and harming these innocent children and damaging their mental health over lies just for their own personal interests.
end human traffiking of american citizens!
CPS took my children, in the petition there reasoning of having a shelter order was based on allegations and allegations only. They had no evidence. I had no jury trial, just a hearing. They still had no proof at the hearing. I jumped through hoops to prove my innocence. 70,000 later I was able to get my children returned home, all of us with PTSD symptoms. It took me 17 months, 17 months I'll never get back and trust that I don't think I'll ever find again in this justice system. Many minut issues are debated and decided upon every day except this one. I really thought I was alone until recently when I just decided to research. This country needs to protect its children but the right way.
Child protective services are sorry pos. They take kids from their families that don't deserve to be taken, yet leave the ones with the abusers and molesters. I lost two of my kids because i smoked pot. No never in front of my kids and it was after they were in bed and I only smoked at night. I was honest with cps but they still took my son. I jumped threw hoops for them passed every drug test and all my uas were clean. As soon as my daughter was born they did everything in their power to take her from me. First they go to a judge to get a warrant to take my baby, the judge denys them, stating there is NO reason to take her baby, she is clean and so is the baby and she is doing everything she is post to. I get to go home and while I'm leaving the hospital cps is adding more lies to take my daughter to their paperwork and went to a different judge and lied and got a warrant. The next day my daughter was not even one day old I had detectives cops cps at my door they don't show me no paper work the detective is corning me in my house telling me to give him the baby and like any mother would do I said no and tried to get away from him and he yanked my not even one day old newborn out of my arms. My kids dad came home and they drew weapons on him(tazers). So ya know I HATE HATE HATE cps dhs or what ever in my eyes they are evil demons. Lastly, I forgot one other thing at one of my visits with my older son I had noticed he had a blister on his leg it was a cigarette burn. I lost it and went ballistic. I told them what i thought of them and I was not gonna give them my baby back and they said they would take care of it and that my visit was now over. I wanted something done that sec. They wouldn't do anything so i called the cops on them and made a report about my baby's leg. The next day I get a phone call saying that my son was wearing pants and running outside (Mind you he's not even a year old yet and can't run, hardly walk yet.) And that's how he got the blister on his leg. The blister was a cigarette burn. I smoke I have had cigarette burns before. Nothing was ever done. I tried following up on it no one would return my calls. But the reasons they stated why they took my kids was, child endangerment cuz I smoked a little pot not around them, and child abandonment cuz my son would only go to sleep in his car seat, so I'd strap his butt in put him right next to me he was not going no where and as soon as he fell asleep I'd scoop him up and put him in his crib. They dont care about the kids they care about that $10,000 they get when they steal and sell your kid. Sorry this is kinda long but it ****es me off that these f***s think they are gods and can do whatever they want. It sickens me. People we need to stop these monsters. Sign the petition and get your friends and family too.
They took my infant from the hospital after I had done everything they had been asking of me
Please help Klamath county Oregon. The practices by CPS/DHS in this county are appalling, and the Klamath Juvenile court has not gone against a DHS case in almost 20years. This fact alone should raise red flags. Judge's who's rulings allow the removal of children who have never been abused, have family in supervisory roles at DHS. Children and families are being stripped of their constitutional and human rights based on the family relations between judge and supervisor, instead of because a child has been harmed.There is no due process of law, and children are being taken out of loving homes, and placed in group homes where they are abused. Please help Klamath County, please help this nations children. Please help our future and stand up for what is right. Be a voice!
BE A VOICE! We all need to stand up for these kids and fight for their rights! Don't let foster youths voices be silenced any longer!
Yes this is happening to me . What they say is true please help us fight this. If you can't save your own children from the government taking control and
They have taken 3 beautiful precious healthy loved children from us and us from them. Nothing is done lawfully, then when you think you will get to be heard, prove your innocence(should be proven guilty) your lawyer never presents anything that you have, objects anything they say, and by the time you figure out what's going on, they are saying that a packet full of lies is truth, 6months you do everything they said to do, come back to court and they say 6 more months because they don't like asking them about not meeting any of their ends of the contract. 380 days minus my children because I could 'possibly be innatentive' at some point. My family is destroyed.
In colorado first they took my two youngest daughters and i kept telling my family and friends i did nothing wrong i was trying to get there father prosocuted for being a child molester, and attempting to kill me twice. No one believed me i lost my whole family. Then ten years later i was raising my two granddaughters and had my life and theirs almost taken by the mother and her boyfriend. I went to file for legal custody and the same people jefferson county human services took them and it being my second time around i was extra carefull to jump through every hoop and then some. Yet 18months later they were both gone and addopted to there foster parents.
Stop stealing our children
