CPS took no action whatsoever after being notified of my plight to get my toddler to a forensic pediatrician in Sacramento. They had been notified by Dr. and nurses, but made no attempt to contact me. CPS only want to persue children they think are easy to take from theyre parents, and don't follow up on legitimate parents who are trying to escape domestic violence and sexual perpetrations. REFORM is greatly needed.
Kids were taken away in 2011 while in the care of their father (we had been separated for 3 weeks) father left back to California and then I was able to pick my kids up 3 months later when they realized I wasn't involved they messed up. I filed a grievance, they found in favor of themselves and I don't have the money for a lawyer. Now I have a substantiated CPS case and cannot work with children or the elderly.
My boyfriend of 3 years ex-wife called CPS on me. She is currently in a rehab and lost custody of her 15 year old daughter. She gave her to her friend who is rich and has no kids. The daughter is better off there. I have a 6 year old son and no family or friends to take him. I am scared and don't know what to do. My son is well taken care of, is not abused, neglected, I dont use drugs. She called them to get back at her ex-husband for not going to court for their daughter. This is insane and I feel so helpless. I don't know what to do. It's not fair and my baby needs to be with me. We are all we got. Please pray for us.
People use the system as a form of revenge to destroy peoples lives it's very very sad
This is a horrible trend and needs to stop. It happened to me and my family. We must stand together and fight this!!!
I have three children, no criminal record, they had NOTHING but assumptions and came and took my kids in the middle of the night on a friday when I could do nothing and made me think it was the best for my kids because I would be arrested. NO warrant was shown, NOTHING! Me and my children are victims of everything stated here and this HAS to be STOPPED!
My kids are with cps now and i am really fighting to get them back i really need help
My male caseworker falsely gave me a neglect charge after jumping through hoops to give him every bit of information, two drug tests, explaining my story several times in great detail, going through hell and back to prove my innocence and showing him I was too busy to repeal because I was getting my son medical attention from countless specialists and endless appointments! All this because my son had a seizure in the shower

So angry, after helping my daughter take care of her kids(4) for two yrs.(im 54)im not allowed to c them or help the other grandma w/their care because of the lies sed about me! stjoeco.in.) let alone the lies about my daughter and fiance! we r scared to aproach these poeple in charge of our lives for fear they will lie about all of our concerns!

Greenville tx has taken my babies please please help. The lady that took them is on the news she has been arrested now what can I do to get my babies back
Jackson County of MI. Is very corrupted they take and sell your children. They need to be investigated..
cps of Johnson cty. Cleburne texas.needs to be investigated...badly
I believe protecting children is honorable, however, Children's Services not being held accountable for the injustices they inflict is very wrong. Personally, I've heard them lie, malign, abuse power in nearly every way and yet, they get by with it. Stop harming our children and families...those children who are truly abused, many of the parents get by...innocent families are targeted sometimes and are horrendously treated and destroyed.
Investigations of CPS practices which include the needless removal of children, violation of civil rights, perjury in courts,false accusations, and the list goes on needs to be investigated.
My toddlers were strip searched at their preschool without my knowledge, consent, or presence. So what they are teaching my kids is that as long as someone has a badge, or says they are allowed to do this, its ok for my kids to show their private parts to anyone who claims they are allowed to see them "for safety purposes"!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS????? The charges against me stemmed from a bogus complaint from my neighbors who are upset with me. Whatever. I have nothing to hide. I have cooperated, and will continue to cooperate as I have done nothing wrong. They could have called me and told me what was going on, that they were at my kids preschool, and that I could come down there asap so they could do this, but either way, they had to do this. I would have been fine! I would have came straight down there, and held my child's hands and told them that mommy said it was ok to do this so that the people could see that they were safe. But no, they didnt even bother to do that! They walked in, flashed their badge, and made my toddlers take all their clothes off!!!! I AM LIVID!!!!!!!! HOW CAN THAT BE LEGAL!!!!!! I have tried my hardest to teach my kids that they dont show their privates to ANYONE except the doctor, and ONLY if mommy is right there with them and says its ok! And the government has went in and underminded everything I've tried to teach my kids!!! I cannot believe that anyone with a badge is allowed to go around strip searching toddlers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CPS operates on lies, i have seen their tactics and have family experience of the fabrication of allegations.
I was a CPS case manager and ever word is true. I had no children, no experience and little training. I had waaaaaaay more rights than police and was permitted to use police to enforce those rights, including but not limited to entering people's homes. I finally quit because I just couldn't handle the power anymore. I lived in constant fear that I was runining people because every word I said was "truth" to the courts and every choice I made changed people's lives forever. It was too much for me but some people thrive on it and those are the people that abuse that power and stick around to continue to feel important. That said, many are kind with the best of intentions and even they make mistakes (but that doesn't matter because either way they're God)
CPS got involved in our lives! We have proved beyond as the courts say, "a shadow of doubt" that they made at least 13 false allegations. They didn't win and are facing criminal charges now!!
I am an amazing mom who doesn't use spanking BUT I am terrified of CPS due to all of the horror stories. I am more afraid of them kidnapping my kids legally than I am of stranger danger. PLEASE END THIS.
Our loved ones are not your pawns and chattel.
im all for cps following same guidelines as law enforcement.
Texas CPS repeatedly returned my son to his mother who has an extensive abuse and neglect history. She currently has been arrested for gun trafficking, stolen guns and theft. She is also a drug abuser but they keep letting her go to "classes" and making me pay her child support to her while son was in foster care for a year.
3 CPS caseworkers arrested in my county today on multiple charges of Tampering with evidence and Official Oppression. Read the story yourself. Google CPS caseworker arrest in Greenville Texas.
My son is currently in foster care because I am an ex-addict. He was taken and I did everything they asked and then when I was supposed to get him back they falsified tests so that he would remain in foster care longer. At this point I'm scared and not sure if I will ever get my son back. He is 1 year old and now gone 6 months and bonding with the fosters more than me. I supply his food & clothes and have a beautiful home waiting for him ....waiting empty.
Justice for Alex Hill and others killed in CPS mandated foster homes. Business of harming the most innocent with no voice. This has to stop. Prosecute those who put Alex Hill in the home of criminals who abused and murdered a tiny 2 year old beautiful little toddler. RIP Alex and seek justice, penalties and reform in her name.
