The state of Indiana basically kidnapped my grandson who lives in IL, who has always lived in IL since his birth. IN DSC stated that the mother, my daughter abandoned her child so the father, who has lived in my house for the 4 years, was now the legal guardian and since he was visiting his mother, that IN must have been the child's residence. Luckily, I was able to get him back by filing for guardianship in IL. However hear in will county, the court advocate said that us grandparents, who have taken care of the child since his birth along with the parents needed to be investigated first before we could be granted guardianship. Figuring that we have the child home from IN, we tried to pull our petition for guardianship, because there was no need for it, but the court has refused, saying that we have to be fully investigated first. IL DCFS interviews my wife and I, and says this was a waste of time and resources. Next court date, they say they have no information from DCFS, that now my daughter needs to be investigated. Finally received the unfounded letter from DCFS, we'll see what the court does next.
stop distroying familys and start putting them together.
Parents who are found guilty need to be allowed only supervised visits. It is wrong to abandon innocent children with people who have already broken their trust once. The Shockley case here in Arizona is the reference I am making.
This agency needs reformed badly. Please help stop the legal kidnapping of America's future.
CPS is ruining lives! I am a survivor of it.
End abuse by CPS!
i am so a vicim of this please can someone tell me how to fight this
CPS has overstepped its authority and has arrogantly circumvented the constitutional rights of parents and children by circumventing reasonable, evidence-based investigative practices and just plain caution.
This is a very serious and much too widespread problem. Anyone's children are at risk! Please help by spreading the word and any other means you can find to do so!
I AM calling for the abolition of all forms of CPS.
Cps was created to protect children who where abused and had no escape. They were suppose to give them a chance for a better future. And they promised our children forever families.
Cps has failed on all three. And to add insult to injury, theyve tried to hide their mistakes rather than exposing them and asking for help to make things better for our children.
Cps can not continue being allowed to be above the law, they are human, they make mistakes, and covering up their mistakes is killing and abusing our children.
either shut them all down, or open them all upto scrutiny our children deserve this.
We the people are our childrens protectors, not some self imposed agency.
Our Children Come First
Justice for my children and justice for all.
BABIES ARE DYING AT THE HANDS OF REALLY BAD PEOPLE. CPS IS NOT WORKING AND I AM LIVING PROOF OF THAT. I WAS A YEAR OLD BEING ABUSED BY A VIETNAM VET WHEN CPS STARTED. I WAS IN THAT HOUSEHOLD OFF AND ON(THANKS TO MY GRANDMOTHER)FOR 11 YEARS. CPS NEVER INTERVEINED...NOT ONCE AND I WAS THE CHILD THAT DID TELL. I TOLD TEACHES, PRINCIPALS, SCHOOL COUNSELORS ALL TO NO AVAIL. THIS SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK. IT IS TAKING MONEY FROM WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE TO FEED MORE AMERICAN GREED. HOW IN THE WORLD COULD ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND THINK THAT MONEY IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN A CHILD'S LIFE? SHUT THEM DOWN. WE THE PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF YOUR RACKETEERING SCAM, CONSPIRACIES TO COMMIT MURDER, AND YOUR FEDERAL FRAUD. YOU ARE NO LONGER WELCOMED OR WANTED ON AMERICAN SOIL! ~KK~
I arrived to the United States legally in 2006 along with my family, because we sought the better opportunity to contribute our efforts in the prosperity of US and to enjoy the paramount values of human rights; whereas Rule of Law is the pivotal pillar in the United States. I had glowing references from my previous law enforcement employers in the Ukraine within 12 years period; moreover, I had also excellent references from United Nations, whereas I contributed in the Balkans as an international Civilian Police serving peace and justice during three years. I arrived in US in the search of better opportunity of career either. I dare to say that I succeeded, in a four years of my residence in US I received the State job as a correction officer, then in a year or so I succeeded in correction counselor trainee ,thereupon I was arrested on false allegation. I and my family worked hard in order to contribute in the society and to enjoy the rights. Nevertheless, my beliefs and admirers of US justice system stays firm as they were before my arrest. In the country where the human dignity values are central, the judicial system must be strong and jealous in prosecuting wrongdoers. Unfortunately there are other individuals, who migrate to the US illegally with the sinister agendas and solid criminal experience, whereby to misuse the Rule of Law with sinister agendas.
I set forth below my matter that occurred in Illinois, Lake County in March 2012.
The charge against me is in the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Lake County Illinois.
Case number is 12CF708. Last year I already have sent the similar statement to the Main Judge
At the above court last year.
At the beginning, I laid out my explanations generally in order to become fact finders be thoroughly familiar with the persons involved profiles. Thereon I laid out detailed statement in the scope of analysis the matter of my accusation (AGG CRIM SEX ABUSE/VIC
26 Years ago my daugther was raped by her father and given a STD. CPS workers traumatized me then and still do now. I get so upset over seeing that NOTHING has changed in 25 years. Judges have the power to rip children from the protective parent based on false reports from CPS workers. The list goes on and on. To have your precious child ripped out of your hands and placed with the rapist is life changing and no words to speak how awful it is.
I apologies again for taking your time out of your busy schedule. Nevertheless, I think that below information you may find interesting and helpful in the scope of law, and intrinsically pertinent to my matter, which was commenced by the Child protective Service, hereinafter referred as DCFS. A fore entity became aware of allegedabuse in my case on Thanksgiving 2011. I was arrested on March 13,2012. The gap between those events left unexplainable so long as investigate professionalism and impartiality of those who conducted essentially investigation thereof.

my daughter was taken from me at ten days old based on the word of her fathers mother who hates me, it seems nearly impossible to jump through all the required hoops to get her back. Nothing in this system is logical, or constitutinal.
Three of my four children are special needs. CPS has threatened to lie to the judge to get them taken even though I have done nothing wrong and am a licensed CNA providing their care and am closely monitored!
This is the 5 time my grandkids have been placed back with parents 3 of the times with in week to a month was placed in someone elses care!! Now my grandkids has issues because of this!!! From night mares to letting someone get close to them because they are scared of them leaving to stopped talking!!! I have them back again and we are working on major issues .. I now have her talking again to me but to outsiders not so much!!!
Im still fighting issues with CPS on the parents and I hope this nightmare ends soon!!!
Cps came to our house over a person at my job was getting back at me,they made our family fall apart they didn't take the kids but we live in fear that someone will do this agin but we haven't head anything from them to say if our case is open or closed
When greed for money comes into the picture, all focus on justice to turn our heads to protect our children who are Truly being abused. And those loving families who are being Torn Apart for no apparent reason. This is just plain wrong. And must not be overlook.
Let's get these Agencies to start working better on these two topics. By doing the right thing. And not drool about the money it can bring their workers to do their job instead of becoming so greedy seeing money sign to make a quota.
Get on the same page, and have all agency follow the same rules and regulations. Those who are involved in the care of those children being abused, along with those loving families who are torn apart for no reason. Those workers should be accountable, instead counting their money in true accounts!
Ive watch my 3 nieces get put back with their parents only to get taken from them again for the same thing a month later sad to say cps is crap here just waiting an seeing what hapen next

If you've ever been through this .BS with cps please don't forget the pain and agony they put you and your children through...We have to stop this" kidnapping", I don't know what it will take but I hope this helps
We are dealing with the state of Oregon now. the caseworker has been caught in many, many lies. she is a so called recovering alcoholic and drug abuser. my grandson was sexually abused in foster care and she did nothing about it. unbelievable what they get away with.
i cannot trust a goverment agency that is supposed to protect children but have so many laws that makes them not held reliable for our children, enjoying goverment immunity and tearing up homes with no concern of what they are doing to our kids is horrible. i hope this does make a difference and changes will be made so that kids that really are being abused will get help
i have been fighting the state of idaho for two years to help my grandchildren and all because of one investigator whom has never met me but told me over the phone i am a ***** for turning in my own daughter nothing has been done even with physical evidence of her shoving a rock down a 6 year old throat..shame on SVU idaho
I have lost 3 beautiful children. One in Nebraska(Victoria), and two in Utah(Michael, Kirsten). I am a recoving drug addict that needed help with treatment not get my kids taken from me to prison and out of control drug addiction. Losing my children destroyed me. Doing everything DCFS wants only prolongs them adopting your children. I hope this helps people not go thru what I did. I miss my babies everyday, and wish I could be in their lives, but I can't because of CPS.
A while back my daughter was taken from me and I went through every step to get her back and after a while of CPS giving me reason after reason of why I could not get her back I finally put my daughter up for adoption I wish this could have happened sooner and I hope my vote will help the cause of so many more unexpecting parents who have done nothing wrong.
Someone please help me get my son back. I love my son and CPS will not let me see him and I never did anything wrong.
Do it for the children.
