Cps removed my Grandson last year in May, I filed a petition for custody 2 weeks before he was removed, there was trial, I lost, I believe they had decided to adopt hi out the day he was removed, I jumped through all their hoops, CPS found nothing negative as far as I was concerned, I had 2 home inspections, passed, no indicated reports of abuse or neglect, no criminal background, I am employed full time. The Judges memorandum was full of lies, I am appealing his decision, I have submitted a affidavit to the Appellate Court, they still want to adopt him out in November. I believe the laws need to be changed.
cps is the most corrupt agency I have seen, they will come up with a lie to continue a case when they cant find nothing wrong
We were wronged and cheated and lied about by the Lauderdale County Department of Human Resources Child Protective Services and lost the battle on November 7, 2014 with a corrupted agency, corrupt Judge and G.A.L. the lawyer assigned for our kids. THIS INSANITY NEEDS TO STOP. Good families are falling by the wayside and on the deaf ears of our Government. Time to get something DONE about this.
Ocean County "Dyfs" should be looked into. The lies and covyer ups are astonishing.
I'm still fighting for my children to come home. For something that wasnt true at all! But I still believe in Karma, and she will be visiting them in time. That helps me get through this. God doesn't like ugly!!
The government needs to stop stealing our children and grandchildren For profit. The Cps,dhs,dfs and judges all LIE. I know this for a fact, Please end all CPS ,DHS,DFS ALL, THIS IS DESTROYING INNOCENT FAMILIES.. BRING BACK ALL THE CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN TO THEIR LOVING FAMILIES..STOP ALL ADOPTIONS OF CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN THAT HAVE FAMILY THAT WILL CARE AND LOVE THEM.ONLY ADOPT OUT CHILDREN THAT ARE GIVEN UP. NOT TAKEN BY CPS,DFS,DHS AND JUDGES THAT WANT THEIR CUT OF THE MONEY FROM OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN.THIS IS HAS TO BE DONE ASAP..SO PLEASE ABOLISH FORCED ADOPTION.
Cps has way too many hogh and mighty workers who decide that their opinions of you makes "bending rules" or fixing paperwork with outrageous lies perfectly okay because it is whats in the childs best interest. They tear families apart. They have no concerns about what they do to the children, the aftermath parents too afraid to punish their children for fear of Cps ahowing up and snatching their children away. Giving some children a new found power to not be afraid to misbehave, and now we as parents have to fear punishing our children..... not enough or too much. They need some serious reform!

Im in Napa county, my INFANT was kidnapped through cps by peoples Slander! I have proof...please help me and my baby they took her straight from the hospital illegally! LELA MOORE OF NAPA COUNTY
Innocent people should be treated as innocent, not as guilty. Too many innocent people being hurt by an unjust system.
The FBI really needs to investigate Johnson county Texas. They are way out of hand. My child simply broke her arm while I was at work and now my life is hell. This Cps lady has lied numerous times sending police to my house. She came in my house and demanded my babies talk to her alone. She told me I couldn't be alone with my children. She has told me I have to take a lie detector test for no reason. She is harassing and ruining our whole life. I adopted my baby. I love her with the whole world. How dare this system take so many families and ruin lives. PLEASE HELP AMERICAN BABIES
Total revision of CPS and "family" courts in needed to stop violating Children and their family's Constitutional Rights. As it is now CPS and "family" courts have act as if they have no accountability for any violations. These very employees are themselves the abusers of many children and need to stop.
I've lost my little girl to cps. My ex sister in law called them on me for smoking marijuana. They took my little girl 2 days after Christmas. My house was a wreck due to having to move by Jan.3 2014. They took her at the time because of the house was a mess told new they would bring her back the following Monday. She's never been returned. I failed only one hair follicle for marijuana,went to rehab when i was able to get into one. They wouldn't let me see her. I've done everything they did to do including leaving my fiancee. If i called them for any reason they said they would call me back. Everytime i never got a reply. They told me They were gonna make sure i never saw her again. They say i never took drug tests mind you i did every month someone's twice s month. That was the final decision thru used to adopt her out to my ex sister in law. Is there s way to get her back. Do to all this i now have PTSD MAJOR DEPRESSION N ANXIETY. This they also used against me.
I.S.T.O.P AWARENESS NOW

I fought the DFPS CPS system for almost 6 years and 6 courts in Texas and went through about 9 court appointed attorney's. The LORD JESUS CHRIST got my children home. I am meeting with State officials to change LAWS.
Cps ignored the evidence produced not only by media archives, but also by signed statements from victims, neighbors, college peers, recovered computer files and police & FBI records regarding the mental state and violent vengeful nature of my ex-husband. I begged cps to read every document, and not fall victim to his pathological lying, and persuasive charming personality he uses to gain your trust. They didn't even try to listen, instead they took my son put him in foster care from false allegations my ex made, and somehow w/out ever informing me till after the fact....ended up giving my ex-husband sole custody of my son ( my ex is his STEP PARENT!). Immediately following the sole custody of my 5 yr old son, my ex moved 3000 miles away to the other side of the country! I have not seen nor heard from my baby boy since. He turned 15 last month. My oldest son tragically passed away just after he started college 18 months ago, my ex wouldnt even allow my son to attend his own brothers memorial service! My depression has rendered me physically ill and metally exhausted, living in constant fear for my childs life, his emotional state, if he knows his mother loves him more than anything in the world and has never given up hope that somehow some way God will help bring him back home to his family reuniting us!?
The Social Workers in Marshall TX are out to break apart families and to take newborns from families!!! I have 2 new born grandsons in the NICU in Longview and 4 girls here and I am good enough for the girls but they will not say if I can have my grandsons or not and the girls are really upset they have not met their brothers and my daughter has been told to leave the home at 10 pm and can come back the next morning and stay ALL DAY then leave at 10pm what a crock of S___!!!!!!!
My daughter was found dependant so workers could enter my home. After found dependant by a court and only 1 visit they closed case.
REDICIOULS I have a dfc case that should have been closed they will not close it for some reason never failed a drug test although I had a call for me usen drugs ... My worker came to my home saying my case will be closed today and bold faced lied .....
I am appalled by the overreach of government.
This country needs CWS reform NOW. Stop the incentives for taking children and greater incentives for adopting them.

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!
