Senator Patrick Leahy, I truly am very shocked and surprised that you have not even responded to the constituents of your own state of Vermont. This not only is very disappointing to me; but it is very alarming to me as well! This makes me wonder if you truly do care about not only the families in our state, as well as our entire country, but more so- if you care AT ALL about our most precious and innocent, the future of our country; ALL OF THE CHILDREN! Why don't the children in our country get AT LEAST the same rights as the adults do in this country? The innocent children should be getting more rights; or at the least,the same- and which would include: evidence required, recording in courtrooms, accountability for DCF workers that cause or contribute to the death of a child; NO BONUS MONEY given out as an incentive to remove children from their families! Someone should, at least, at a minimum, be doing a better job making sure that a child's or children's best interests are being looked at thoroughly and completely. An Agency/Person/Court/Judge, should be 100% sure, WITH EVIDENCE, prior and before making a drastic decision, like tearing a child/ren away from their birth-right, their families, that the decision they are making, is truly in the best interest of the child. (Not in the best interest of someone's paycheck)- Because the statistics show, based on every category of abuse; that more children are abused when they are removed from their family, than they are/were prior. The system is broken, and needs to be fixed. Please, at least respond to me via e-mail, and let me know what your thoughts and opinions and ideas are on this subject; as this is not an issue that should be ignored. As you know, Vermont has had two deaths, of children that were in DCF custody. I have other issues and facts that you really should know about. I am possibly looking at a lawsuit myself, due to what John Zalenski did and caused harm to my family as well. The truth came out in our favor. Instead of receiving an apology- the Rutland office continues to defame our families character. Shame on them. We have never broke the law; and my husband is a Veteran of this country. We have six children; two of which we adopted- not through DCF; privately. DCF committed perjury, fraud, broke the law, etc.. etc.. and they do it, because they can, and no law stops them. Like I said, the truth came out IN OUR FAVOR, and THEY STILL ARE NOT STOPPING! Please contact me asap. Thank you for your time. Cindy
Cps has harassed my family for years and years, in fact they even went so far as to take my rights away and attempt to adopt my kids out after I lost my job and home do to a disabling injury. I reached out for help and instead had my children stolen from me, even after the court of appeals declared cps did not present sufficient evidence to sustain taking my rights and removing my children cps has still refused to let me so much as talk to my children and are continuing to attempt to retake my rights and adopt my children out to a "home" that my youngest son was sexually assaulted in. THIS NEEDS TO END not to mention the fact that there are still people out there that think if CPS has taken your kids you must be a bad person that some how deserves it.
They took my girls and adopted them out ,I did everything they said and when it came time for me to get them home I was gave the choice of signing my rights away ir letting them go to my family which are convicted sex crimes against children so I let them be adopted one daughter with her dads family and the other stangers
Total abuse of power by under educated DSS Child Protective Services. Even when reporter admits they lied. fabricated, and made an unfounded report, the Halifax County, NC, case worker Vickie Foster continued vigorously to pursue absurd illogical complaints. The Roanoke Rapids Graded School District interim Superintendent even called Ms. Foster and admitted his Principal Williams, and special education teacher made up and distorted the allegations, Vickie Foster refused to close the case.
They removed my kids twice in a row for no reason now they won't even let me do anything to bring them home it's a volentary agreement I am the custodial parent to all 3 kid's
im in ky why is it that these people goes on lies or takes what kids says witch was lies and did not check nothing out just went on what they saidyou all need the check social services out in grayson ky in carter county ky
they need to go on the truth and check things out
Nowhere in the Constitution do you have the authority that God granted me to protect and raise my kids. Cps is the beginning of the end. Mother against daughter. Son against father. Fight back. Save your kids kids
Defamation of character from the Rutland Office; which started with John Zelenski; and although he has been fired; it is still continuing with his other employees. My husband and I have clean criminal records. My husband is a Veteran of the U.S. I have one Grandson that was adopted out Illegally; now they are targeting my other grandchildren; and currently have one in an abusive home; which they fail to even investigate. (The new director actually accused me of making calls!) They have caller I.D. I'm sure she can prove or disprove that quickly. The person who did call was told her recording would be played in court in front of the judge; but of course it wasn't. Money seems to be more important to many of these people, rather than the well-being of the children. Which is just heart-breaking, and wrong, in every sense; morally, ethically, against the American way. We have six children. Two are adopted. We did not adopt them through the system. It was a private adoption. We won't use children for money. It's just not right. There are too many children in need in our country today. Please help change the laws. I am happy to talk to you further. If you can offer me any personal help with my situation, I'd be very grateful; for my children and grandchildren's sake. Thank you for your time.
My daughter made false sexual abuse allegations against her dad and since November. 2014, my daughter has been in 5 homes and being brainwashed and threatened if she recanted she is going to jail and if she calls or texts me her aunt told her she'll give her back to cps!!! She has already told her dad she's sorry n texted her lawyer stating she lied but the lawyer told us that is not relevant in court
I also would like for them to question doctors, and stop pushing dingos is when parents said there's adiffrent diagnosis of mental health. I also would like them to see if there's a mental health disorder that there be no discrimination on the parents but cps to work with parents to help the mental health area and not just take kids away because a percent has a mental health disorder
Please help right the wrongs.
These are the same issue we are going through in louisnanna, so two years we live in texas, and we wasnt the reason they took him,
My case was open due to my son passing away because of an accident due to the reason of my son having multiple sicknesses,my kids got removed to family and now I am getting sent to court because I admitted I smoked even before taking a drug test.Started doing everything with out them asking.Cooperated with everything without being asked and I'm still getting badgered on;knowing I'm a grieving mother with my own support system.To top it of during the incident there was no smell of marijuana or anything but I'm neglect I've cause I came out dirty..
Someone called CBS in Killeen Texas and said that my daughter had no food, house was dirty, and she was smoking Marijuana. CPS, came to the house and saw that there was food and the house was spotless. They told her she had to take a drug test to prove the other allegations were not true, my daughter too the test of course she came up hot for Marijuana then they told her since your father lives here he has to take a drug test to. He refused so they said the house was a danger area because he refused and took her son out of the house. He can't be with his mother because she lives with her Dad. He has been out of the house a month now his school grades are falling and he just sits in class and makes airplanes. He is not interested anymore. A danger area his mother's house is because his grandfather refuses to take a urine test, CA has removed him he is under PCSP. No court order in place no where just PCSP.how is this a danger zone.because grandfather won't take a drug test if it is that bad get a court order. No worries son is separated FROM MOM. PCSP that Is, where my the grand son is.

My sister and her husband are going through hell right now having her 3 daughters removed from home by CPS. False accusations have been made and now the CPS lady is threatening to have my sisters rights terminated and to place the children with her abusive ex husband. This is wrong on so many levels and the laws need to be changed now!
My son is being stolen form me they have no allegations and I cant take it anymore I am going to the capital anyone want to come pleas contact me I need all the help I can get pleas help bring my son Jeremiah dean Marceau-neilson home
I'm a single mother of 2. I'm unemployed and have a family case history extending back to my own childhood where CPS first started with attacking my mother. We knew that her ex-husband who was raping my sister (which we later found out about) was making those reports to keep the attention off of himself. But because of anonymous reporting we couldn't prove it. My mother was a single mother as well and had little income. CPS took advantage of that and as soon as I had my son they shifted their black cloud over my head. They have threatened and harassed me time and again. Including investigating me during a case I was not supposed to be investigated in when my child and family were the victims. I am even now undergoing yet again another case where there is no reason or just cause for them to investigate me. Not even suspicion of exigence. Nothing absolutely nothing. Just because they can. When I contacted lawyers and attorneys to find out what I could do to protect myself, my children and my family from further harassment and threats I was told the same thing. CPS has immunity and nobody will take the case. They are protected but who is protecting the people? The millions of parents who are being targeted with no actual cause or reason other than CPS's knowledge that they have little money or education to do anything about it. It's time that America is informed of what is really going on and has the right to stand up to protect their children, homes and families. We need more Advocation to represent parents and children who are being illegally punished for crimes of abuse/neglect they did not committ.
Maybe we need to look and see if any of our missing children are in States custody?

JUSTICE 2 INJUSTICE HOPE KIDS FUTURE!! Kids aren't at fault!!
continued response to Amy's comment about Loraine M Lowling 01/01/1969 being arrested. people have been thinking she was a real targeted individual and followed her nonsense on facebook defaming her sister and ex husband and cursing her own mother and posting lies about these people. it is about time ti's stop worrying about what this woman is saying. she is not an innocent person and has threated everyone she has come in contact with who does not go along with her ideas and plans. this is why she harasses her family. she did not get her way. she calls everyone a narcissist but if you ask her victims she is the narcissist and a big one at that. she steals and plots against people right under their nose and thinks she is entitled to what belongs to them such as their homes and businesses. she starts arguments and then portrays herself as a victim. it would be good advice to stay away from her and let the authorities get her mental health care. the "evidence" she claims to have is not evidence but her own writings on people she doesn't like in order to manipulate law and get revenge on them. they are not facts or evidence just a bunch of nonsense. all the things she has claimed about people is never proven and then she runs from "restraining orders" they have on her so she doesn't get arrested. its about time people stop this and worry about real issues and REAL victims. her family is not stalking her or trying to hurt her, she is jealous of her sister and wants a home, husband and children who love her and wants to steal it from people who have it. now that's a NARCISSIST. these are real issues being posted here by real victims and to put her name in this is absurd. she wants to use the system to hurt innocent people. stop making her out to be an angel because she is far from it.
I would like to comment about what Amy said about a Loraine M Lowling being arrested. Maybe to police were rough on her but she had no evidence. All she has is her own writings and stories about people who didn't want to have anything to do with her anymore She is trying to build a case against her husband and sister so she can get their property. She threatened me and several victims of "targeting" to write us up and give information to DHS. She started arguments and then claimed we needed help and she would be our guardian. She then told another targeted individual who she did the same thing to in her home and claimed her children were on drugs and she would "write them up". She claimed she could have weapons and harassment started because we needed help from DHS to get counseling and medication and that the targeting was necessary. I called these agencies she claimed to be working for and none of them know or and said her claims were ridiculous and she needed help if anyone did. She goes into peoples homes and writes false things about them and claims this is evidence. This is what she has been doing to her ex husband and sister. There are many blogs about her and stories from other victims. She is trying to build a case against everyone so she can get their property. This is her so called evidence. She stole from my house and then told my friend she would steal my property. She did this to a Marjorie Townsend also and claimed I could move into her home once she got her arrested and claimed she was a govt agent who was doing a case on her, an elderly woman. She will turn on anyone who wants to sever the friendship and not provide housing for her anymore. Her daughters claim she was the one who assaulted them and that their father never did. There are too many people who say the same thing about this woman. she doesn't even understand what it is to be a targeted individual as she asked me over and over why "did they do this" or why are they doing that to you" what did you do for it to happen"? now a real targeted individual knows that there is no valid reason to be targeted and that good people with weak family ties or easy targets like women are used for profit. she has claimed to use the very same agencies and govt entities to harass and abuse law to get revenge on ti's who didn't want to house her anymore. she makes outrageous claims on people that aren't true and thinks she can probate their homes and be their guardian and wants everyone to use her name as an advocate to so she can use it in a case of dependency against them and move into their house. ive seen this so called evidence she has. Its a bunch of lies she writes about people. She is not a govt, agent, police officer, neuro scientist or advocate. If she is put in mental health care she needs it in my opinion but I do not claim to be a psychologist as she claims being. She was still threatening my friend and I who were warning people in the ti community that she was using for money

The government needs to shut them down,and start over,with an agency that protects these children.

it is time that cps is investagated
My wife called police to get a police report saying that she had been living with a bad roach problem and she was frustrated. They wouldnt give her the report that she thought (shes from honduras, legally!) would help her in suing the landlord. So we think she just has a roach phobia and she called the next day. You know how cops are, they had an attitude about going out there 2 days in a row. I was living at my dads recovering from an accident (only two weeks out of a wheelchair) and couldnt be at the apartment, so a cop reported her to cps as "mental" even though he admitted to me over the phone that the baby looks healthy and fine. Now we have a legal nightmare. If this can happen to us for something as trivial as roaches, imagine what they can do to other people.
cps needs to be reformed, now.
