I do not want any of my tax money going to these child protective services any more ! I still can't believe what I've witnessed in the past two years . My grandson disclosed sexual abuse by his father on his weekend visits with him . The dcf and family court ignored witnesses , ignored the child's doctor's report , ignored the child's therapist's report , ignored statements the child made to police and his school counselor , they ignored the pleas made by his mom and myself to protect our child. Instead they took my grandson away from his mom and his brother and sister and made him go live with the abuser . Now he's lost 10 pounds He cries all the time just like he used to do when he returned home from his weekend visits with his father . He is dropped off by his father at a drug house almost every night of the week till 10:30 so the father can go gambling and then has to get up at 6:00 in the morning to be dropped off at kids club at school at 7:00 . He has big black circles under his eyes . No one is allowed to talk to the child about the abuse and they are all acting like it never happened . The father took him out of counseling . Our child has been silenced . One thing I've learned is that from the police to the family court judge none of them really know how to investigate child sexual abuse . Or in our case they just don't . The father said he didn't do it and that was the end of the investigation by the police . And the beginning of hell for my grandson and my daughter and myself. Just one more thing , I've been wondering about . Sexual abuse of a child is a crime , so why do they take it to family court behind closed doors with one old man making all the decisions ?
In 2004 after being off drugs for16 months they took my newborn daughter from the hospital, violated me and my daughters due process, and adamitly fought to keep us apart for forever. So atrocious and malicious, we must stop this taking of newborns from their mothers.
CPS (Placer County in particular) are determined to "Create new and better families" at the expense of the existing family.

My granddaughter was shaken by her birth mother. She lied in court about my son and all of us. CPS awarded my granddaughter to what the court calls NRFF's (nerfs), Non Related Friends of Family, the birth mother's friends. These people are adopting my son's daughter and CPS made a deal with these people long ago.

The Paternal family are no longer allowed to see this child, because the NRFF's are friends of the birth mother and "don't have to do that anymore".

CPS really botched this, and I am sure that this happens ALL THE TIME.
CPS discriminates against my hard of hearing granddaughter and said she must of heard the abuse happen ( by her husband they claim ) She has not seen her babies in 6 months and they keep delaying the trial.In family court you have NO rights and you are Guilty and have to prove your innocence which is hard to do when you did not hear or see anything happen.So they tell you that you have to admit your husband abused the children or we terminate your rights.The laws need to be changed.That is blackmail !!!!
I cnt wait to sue cps.adrienne simmons from dss in charlotte is an idiot an needs to be investigated.her and her dumbass supervisor smfh.
couldn't have said it better myself - i audit australia case files and compliance with law is attrocious. accountability does save lives.
Thank you for the knowledge

Hello senator my name is Danielle Smith I am a very big supporter of you and need you to step in and do something right now. I have had in my custody for well over a year now a little 17 month year old girl named Jaiden. Her biological mom was unable to care for her and would leave her for, days at my best friends house. My best friend has a little one of her own so I took Jaiden home with me I have been trying for a year to get the mother to sign guardianship over to me but she would refuse. So here we are over a year later and the biological mother has been reported to CPS because of her new 4 month year old she just had. and CPS removed Jaiden from my home too for no reason. They say there are to many foster kids and not enough foster homes. Yet they remove a child from a good home where she is happy and healthy. They wouldn't let me keep her because of my background check that is wrong. Maricopa screwed up my paperwork and they are saying I have a felony Marijuana possession that was designated a misdemeanor at sentencing. My mom and brother both passed there background checks. All of that is irrelevant now because my mother has guardianship of her now but CPS is pulling the we have more power than any judge crap and still will not let me have her. Jaiden already has separation issues and now I know she is traumatized again over what they are doing. Isn't there job to do what is in the best in intrest of the child???? You are the only one I think that can help me at this point I know it is a holiday weekend but I need your help now. Please please please help me.

CPS thinks ripping children out of their home is always the answer. My daughter was made to voluntarily place her two children. I have had the children for a month. She just got a letter saying they could not substantiate abuse or neglect, but they still wont let the kids go home. I am not very happy with these people. They can work with some families in their home, but choose not to, it is easier to disrupt the childrens lives. While they are busy messing with cases they have no business messing with, there are other children really being raped, beaten, locked in closets, and even murdered. Who gave CPS so much power? Why are they allowed to destroy families? They need to be stopped.
CPS Has no oversite! People must have a right, and be given the means to fight for their children.

Me, and about 5 other people I know, have dealt with "protective" services and their tactics. I have worked in detention centers for abused and neglected minors, and they might as well be in a prison the way they are treated.

They do have a place, but they need to have serious consequences if they use tactics, such as lying, in order to achieve their agenda.

This is happening every day in sonoma county ca theve taken my so a dozen of my friend are fighting to get thier children back are only crime is we are poor
This happened to us on July 7, 2013 and i am still fighting to get our babies back. Thing is these workers are trained to fabricated lies and the judge rules in their favor without reaon and evidence. I need help in my case especilly due t the fact that they falsely and criminally removed our babies out of their loving home and put them with family of criminals. So we Ly here every single night wondering if our babies are okay, they also took our visitation rights away so this was carefully planned and though out. If they got us out of the way then they figure they can keep our babies and make money off of it. Please help us!
The whole system is flawed...and its not in the best interest of any child.....

This needs to be fixed. What is happening with placing children with unfit foster parents is nothing but human trafficking.
TN CPS is just as corrupt and needs to be stopped
Cps in johnson county " Cleburne" is so crooked and should be openly investigated those people are not in it for the well being of the children they are in it to see how many lives they can ruin and get as much money as they can!!! Every cps worker needs and evaluation and followed unknowingly!!!
Children's Dept. of Social Services seems to be a State agency left to do as they please, with no one to hold them accountable when trouble from their care put children at greater risk than in their own home. Our children are not being taken care of in foster/adoption homes. Statistics are showing we have felons, drugs, sex offenders even pedophiles taking in our children only for money, this is not acceptable!!! We have lies and frauds flowing through out the halls of our courts done by those in positions we should and have trusted to be honorable. We need transparency, reform, and less funding to cut the corrupt incentives to do such damage to not only our american families, but to our innocent children...They are our future, your future, what are you preparing for when you do so much damage!!!
STOP These Child Snatchers NOW. They are The DEVILS SECRET SERVICE here in NC

CPS is too flawed. They do more damage than good.
Stop allowing vindictive people with grudges to use CPS as a weapon to disrupt families. This problem tends to undermine parental authority because children learn that when they don't get what they want, or they don't like being disciplined, they can get even with mom or dad by lying to CPS.
I was illegally adopted at 5 years old. They took me from my mother for no abuse. Even stated in my mother's tpr that no abuse occurred. There's alot to the story, but I have so many documents to prove my case. So I'm tired of cps doing whatever they want. I lived for 15 years without knowing my family. I found them 8 months ago. I live with them because you know, my mom is soooo dam abusive, yet she has 4 other children.
My parental rights were terminated for abandonment I have never been to court and was unaware father and paternal grandma was seeking custody I called my child everyday
Ker county cps , took my children when there was no warrant , abssolutely no imminent danger to anyone in my home and now they are terminating my parental rights and adopting them out, I see these signs all over Bakersfield stating they need foster parents badly bull crap they keep taking children from loving homes because they know our children are placeable putting them into foster homes so when there are trully abused children needing homes but they arent placeable and then have no homes to go to, Kern county cps has destroyed my life my faith and I now feel hopeless. How can they get away with this?
cps stole my children lies fabricated and false proof calls and reports my lawyer didn't do his job even when i beg and cried and pleaded for him to file motion to imminently return my kids homes and nothing my children were dangled on a hook in front of my face and the more i proved they were wrong and lying the more they reported to the judge false information and calls and reports and he slept and snored on the bench rolled his eyes on all my witnesses testimony in court at my TPR trial which my right were involuntarily taken away from me SOME THING NEEDS TO CHANGE I FEEL MOTHERS AND FATHERS ARENT GOING TO STAND FOR THIS ANY LONGER WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH WE LOVE AND WANT OUR CHILDREN HOME WITH THEIR LOVING FAMILIES WHERE WE AND GOD KNOW THEY SHOULD ALWAYS BE HOME ------------ I LOVE YOU HUNTER KYLE SKYE AND JOURNEY I AM KEEPING MY PROMISE TO KEEP UP THE FIGHT TO GET YOU ALL HOME SAFE AND SOUND WHERE I WILL BE WAITING WITH OPEN ARMS WAITING FOR YOU ALL TO FILL MY HEARTS ARMS AND LIFE WITH YOU LOVE GRACE LAUGHTER HOW I HAVE MISSED YOU ALL VERY DEARLY AND I PRAY TO GOD EVERY NIGHT WE WILL BE TOGETHER SOON ONCE AGAIN LOVE ALWAYS YOUR MOMMY DESIREAH
Staggering and Very Sad the rate so many good families are being torn apart without proper investigation!
