She singlehandedly destroyed the most important thing in my life, my family.  / Adriano Parente
I am a perfect example of what CPS has done to my family, a family that has been destroyed. Before CPS entered our lives, we had bliss. We were happy people. Things were good in all aspects. Finances were up, our marriage was loving, and our children were always happy. Then CPS stepped in and picked our family apart. NANCY DOYLE, our caseworker lied on the stand. Our lawyer, who was appointed by the court, actually lost his cool in court when he heard her lies. The end result was our children were taken away. The pain destroyed our once loving marriage. At one point I let myself go down in flames and I didn't care about life anymore. Today, I'm picking up the pieces of my life and I still struggle to do that. My mental health has improved but I fear of what would happen should I encounter the caseworker in public. She singlehandedly destroyed the most important thing in my life, my family. Close

once cps involved in your life, no one else hears you.  / Desheika King
Once CPS involved in your life, no one else hears you. They tell what they know and then you tell your side but it really doesn't matter because they sound so confencing to the point you have to prove to them who you really are. You are the one being judged by everyone but they don't hear you , that piece of paper that states what you are acussed of is louder than any tears you cry, any pleading you do,and screams you scream. some one needs to hear innocents voices.

It is traumatic and heart-breaking.  / Christopher Slitor
Despite the fact that my wife and I were EXONERATED of any finding of "child neglect and abuse" by the state headquarters of CPS, Richmond, VA, the Arlington County CPS is still moving full speed ahead to terminate our parental rights and have our daughter, whom we love dearly, put up to be adopted by the foster family. We are appealing this to Circuit Court. We have spent over $100,000 in legal and related fees. It is traumatic and heart-breaking. Close

My daughter was taken from me when she was only two weeks old  / Nancy Hey
My daughter was taken from me when she was only two weeks old, on false charges of neglect, just because she lost a little weight after birth. She has been in a foster home for a year and a half now. Despite being exonerated of charges of child neglect, Arlington County Department of Child and Family Services still wants to terminate my parental rights, and put my daughter up for adoption by her foster family. They misdiagnosed me as having Aspergers Syndrome, and being incapable of raising a child, even though this diagnosis was proven false by an independent psychiatrist. I love my daughter dearly, and want her back with me. Close
These individuals do not care for children's welfare  / Eileen Kuch   Read >>
These individuals do not care for children's welfare  / Eileen Kuch
CPS exercises too much power vis-a-vis families and children, but no responsibility for the tragedies that often occur as a result of this unbridled abuse of power. With power comes responsibility and accountability, which most officials ignore. How many cases involving horrific child abuse and murder have come before courts, because innocent children had been unjustly taken away from normal households and placed in unstable - often violent - foster homes? What gives these incompetents the right to play GOD over the rights of both the children and their natural parents? Nothing. It is one thing to remove children from abusive parents after thorough investigations and hearings. However, it is quite different when this process is abused by incompetent and/or malevolent agents and judges. These individuals do not care for children's welfare, or that of their families; and, they should not have any control over child protection. Close

my mother is a foster parents and i live in her home.  / Foster Parents
my mother is a foster parents and i live in her home. the agency pulled her foster children from her home because of false accusations. they were infounded and thrown out. the agency had no other reason to pull these kids, which were absolutely devistated. they loved our home. we love them and we want them back. the agency gave excuses of why they were pulling the kids but made no sense and everthing they said was found not true. so why did the kids get pulled? the agency said its a miscommunication. its a miscommunication on there part. and in the middle of all this and there confusion are these kids, that don't deserve this. they deserve a chance at a normal life and a steady home, that they finally found in our home. we will fight to get them back. we love them. please don't let them get lost in the system.

Help me- I am becoming a victim of the systems abuse!  / Kayla Pumphrey (Passerby)
My name is Kayla and I have to young children. One of my babies passed away almost one and ahalf years ago now. I am trying to divorce the father of my children. He is abusive and is in prison for assualting me. He now using the children and youth agency to harrass me. I have asked for help from every law enforcement agency and just get told I have not one right. My sons death was immediatley investigated because it was an unexpected death. The police department found there to be no foul play involved and the matter was left to the coroner. The coroner came to the finding that he was born with a heart diease that should have been caught long before his death and his brief bout with bronchitis and the medication that was perscribed were the cause of his death. The doctor perscribed him a perscription dose to high for his age and wieght and the medication never dispersed in his system properly. Now my ex in teaming up w/ CYS to try to make my life hell claiming i am unable to care for my child. Each time they arrive the investigation is unfoundedand the case closed. Then next week comes and the same thing comes all over again. I am emotionally drained. and its becoming out of hand! 
HELP

My grandchildren lost their mother because they were never allowed to talk to their mother. The effects of this kind of torture on children can be devastating. My prayer is that all who have been torched by cps is to not let this pain consume you. Get the help for the children and for the parents who have suffered also. Get involved it can help change lives and your life also. God Bless all of you. Together we can do this. Close

As a teacher, I am a mandated reporter  / Laura Ingram
 As a teacher, I am a mandated reporter, which means I must report suspected child abuse and neglect. Since statistics show that CPS agencies commit horrendous acts of abuse and neglect against children -- physically, emotionally, medically, even educationally -- I am mandated to report CPS. As a single mother since the age of 15, I have seen what a joke these agencies are. When my first child was born, a social worker told my mother, before I even left the hospital, to take us home and then report me to DCFS (as much as my mother wanted the baby to be put up for adoption, she would not make a false allegation). My second child, born 16 years later, is autistic. When he was three, I was relieved when a DCF caseworker refered us for childcare and therapy. However, the day care center soon expelled my son and the agency denied funding for the therapy (I had no insurance at that time). So the caseworker changed her "referal" to "clean your house or he goes in foster care." Four years and 1,200 miles later, I am happy to report that my son is doing well under my lone care, even when the house is a mess. Close

I am a surviving victim of child welfare services.  / David Jones (Ex Foster Kid )
I am a surviving victim of child welfare services. When I was 11 yrs old, my mother was forced by DCF to place me under their "protection" due to an absent father not paying child support. My mother was forced to get a fulltime job to provide support for her own 3 children. I became a "latch-key kid." I would have disappeared within the "system" if it weren't for the fact that my mother worked for the courts as a court clerk. Thus DCF was warned by a judge and kept from removing me from my mother's custody. BUT I still suffered psychological damage at the hands of "case workers" who tried to get me involved with child prostitution. But because of my upbringing within the church, I recognized their evil and spoke out against them, to everyone I met. When I turned 14, I was forced to move in with my abusive dad due to oppresive force applied by DCF upon my mother. After I graduated from high school I moved back with my mother and told DCF in so many words that if I ever see them around my family again, I'm gonna shoot them. Now I'm 45 and am working as a political activist. I never thought that DCF would ever get so big and powerful, and more & more evil. Judgement is gonna fall upon our country like a ton of bricks.

My foster daughter lost her life  / Dawn Wetzel (Foster Mother )
My foster daughter lost her life because I trusted dhfs to protect her. I would have kept her in my home and adopted her, if I had known she would not get any more help than she did when she was with me. It is very sad to know that they didn't care that I loved this child, but I needed some help dealing with her problems. Instead they sent her from foster home to foster home, which eventually lead to her death. Close
real abuse, neglect, etc.. and they turn a blind eye to it.  / Andrea Cool   Read >>
real abuse, neglect, etc.. and they turn a blind eye to it.  / Andrea Cool
For as long as I can remember, everyone we knew has feared CPS. You always hear "They took so and so's kids cause she didn't have enough money to pay her electricity." ... and then you have the other cases, like mine, where they are faced with a real situation, real abuse, neglect, etc.. and they turn a blind eye to it. In my case, my abuser told CPS (which was called HRS in florida when I was a teen) that I was on drugs. She used pictures of me to prove her case. My first picture was me in 7th grade, obese. The second picture (her proof as she put it) was me in 9th grade, suffering from self starvation because of my step father telling me how fat I was everyday, gaunt faced, dark circles under my eyes. So I asked her "So I'm on drugs? Lets do a drug test right now." She refused to do one. So I started asking her where I got the belt buckle shaped bruises on my ankle and legs that I had just had the local law enforcement photograph when I ran away from home TO call the cops. Her response was that when people shoot up they bruise. So I was sent back home where the abuse and death threats grew worse. I ended up being one of the lucky ones. I fought back finally and defended myself. I didn't care at that point if I died or not doing it. He came at me on my bed, I clawed and scratched at him, he jumped back a moment to dodge my nails and I pulled my legs into my chest and just kicked him as hard as I could in the chest. When he staggered out I was sure he was having a heart attack, but it ended up I only damaged his esophogas. But his 'power trip' was gone after that and I had to go. I was finally allowed to leave. I spent the rest of my teen years with my grandparents and married at 17 just to fully get away from everything. I share this not for sympathy. I am a survivor. I share this to show how the system NEEDS TO CHANGE. Strict qualifications need to be implemented and instead of pulling some of these kids out because mommy couldn't pay for electricity, or mommy was pushed by daddy (but then left him), Help those families. Teach them parenting skills in their home. Send nurses or house cleaners over once a week to help out a mother with a heavy workload on her shoulders. Stop turning these children into bedroom buddies for perverts and punching bags for people who only foster for the 'benifits'. Enough is Enough. Andrea Cool

I was raped repeatedly for many years.  / Ex Foster Kid From (Massachusetts)
I was in foster care system, sorry to say it's as broken as it gets. I was raped repeatedly for many years. The agency that placed me knew it, and did nothing to protect me. Sorry to say it still happens today. They base their pay scales on cps workers on how many children they remove from homes. Their goals are not to keep families intact, but how many they destroy!!

It's REAL and TRUE! LISTEN to what these people are saying.  / Bryan Montford
Please, for the love of all that is Holy, and for the American Family, LISTEN to what these people are saying. It's REAL and TRUE! Family services needs no evidence and will take your children from you! The emotional devastation that are wreaking upon thousands of families every day is incalculable. Yet NO ONE will do anything about it! The madness HAS to stop! I don't know if I’ll ever be allowed to even see my children again, for an accusation they cannot prove. Close

I am a product of the system... Despite the system. I lived my entire life in Foster Care. I was never beaten by my bio parents, I was beaten by my foster parents. We need to protect OUR children of ALL races, against the Foster Care System. They do NOT protect children they are harming them on a daily basis. Please, GOD, someone HELP, before its too late for all of them. We need to START protecting our children!!! Close

When you lose a child on trumped up lies  / Family From Texas
When a child dies grief overtakes you but eventually you learn to live with it and though it never goes away you do survive. When you lose a child on trumped up lies used by hateful people and no one has to have any proof of the accusations you die. Physically you survive but there is basically no reason to continue. You cannot cook, you cannot go to a store or a restaurant or anywhere you have previously been with that child or children. Everytime you see a place you hurt all over again knowing you can never take the siblings to enjoy what he did. This pain does not leave, this grief continues until----- When my great grandbabies were taken I wound up in the hospital with triple bypass. You only survive mentally. If the abandonment issues are this traumatic for me and other adults to the point it almost kills us what do you think it does to the babies and small children? How are they supposed to handle their grief? Tell me, please. Tell me what rights the children have. Tell me how someone else can say in the best interest of the child when they do not know the child? Who gave them (Child Protective Services) the right to over rule God's destination for His children? Close
