Two young parents face off against DHS to regain custody of their twin boys.

Alyssa and Chris Weber had the same kindergarten teacher but they didn’t meet until grade school. They started dating when she was a junior in high school.

“We used to hit each other over the head with a pop bottle,” recalled Alyssa. Soon after, he proposed: “He did a knee slide up to me in the cafeteria and asked me to marry him with a ring and everything,” she said.

“I didn’t have a rose in my mouth. That was the only off key,” added Chris.

The Webers married in 2008 at Stayton Pioneer Park. Alyssa had just found out she was with child. “We were both happy … and shocked, and kinda scared because of the fact that we were homeless,” she said. They hadn’t been able to make the rent and were living in their Chevy Lumina for a few weeks. Upon receiving the news, they moved in with Alyssa’s grandmother until their twin boys, Aiden and Zander, were born. Soon after, they found a place of their own.

“Two weeks after we moved out, DHS took our kids,” said Alyssa, who was eighteen at the time.

She had noticed two-month old Zander was fussy and wasn’t moving normally. Concerned, she rushed him to the emergency room. An x-ray revealed he fractured his clavicle, but an ER doctor explained that this kind of injury is common in babies, often caused by the birth process, and that they may go undetected because children so young don’t move around very much. Zander’s fracture was left to heal on its own.

At the time, the Webers didn’t know what could have caused the fracture.

The hospital called the child abuse report hot line in March ’09. “It is our policy [that we report] any child up to age two with any fracture that is not associated with a motor vehicle accident,” said Julie Howard, Salem Hospital spokesperson.

The Marion County child abuse expert ordered full body x-rays of both boys, which revealed a possible fracture on Aiden. When investigators could not get a clear answer of how either injury may have happened, DHS [Department of Human Services] took custody of the twins, suspecting child abuse.

Soon after, it was confirmed that Aiden never actually suffered a fracture, but by then it was too late.

“We all sat around and thought what could’ve caused Zander’s fracture. Within a week after they were taken, we figured it out,” said Alyssa. “We were on our way to go pick up my mum and go shopping. She would help us out with what we needed that we couldn’t get with food stamps. I noticed the car seats were a little snug but we were already late to pick her up. We almost rear-ended someone. I slammed on the brakes to avoid an accident.”

The day before the almost-accident, the boys had received shots and Alyssa was expecting them to be fussy, which is why she said she did not noticed he was hurt.

“We told DHS what happened and they still said the cause was undetermined,” she said. “We didn’t agree with that report.”

Authorities dropped all criminal abuse charges but DHS founded them for neglect because of the ‘unexplained’ injury.

As part of the DHS investigation, the Webers submitted to DHS psychological tests. A DHS-appointed psychiatrists diagnosed Alyssa with depression, anxiety and ADHD. Chris was diagnosed with PTSD and ADHD, and was told he needed to “grow up and mature.”

“When they found out it wasn’t child abuse and that we were gonna do everything possible so that it didn’t happen again, they told me that I wasn’t mentally stable enough to care for twin boys when I was doing it fine before,” she said. “I only made one mistake which was not loosening up their car seats before leaving the house.”

The Webers did say they have been sad.

“It’s hard enough every morning waking up and not seeing the boys in our house. We stored all their toys in her grandma’s house so we didn’t have to see them,” said Chris.

Two weeks after the call to the hot line, a juvenile court judge granted DHS temporary custody of the children, while DHS stated they would “continue to seek jurisdiction of the children.” The conditions for return included the parents’ cooperation with treating their mental health issues and them proving they had the knowledge and ability to parent.

“How do they know that I can’t parent when they haven’t even given me the chance to try and I’m a first time parent?” questioned Alyssa.

The twins have been in foster care for the last sixteen months. During this period, the Webers found an infected gouge on one of the boys’ heads, it was revealed that they had received a double dose of vaccines, and the kids were taken out of state, they said.

“I didn’t see anything stating that they had permission from the judge. They went to a wedding for a family that wasn’t even their family and we missed a home visit over it,” said Alyssa.

Since the boys were taken, the Webers have been allowed to visit them a couple of hours a week in a DHS location supervised by a note-taking observer.

In August’09, DHS had noted the parents’ strong bond with the babies. Yet by December, the Webers failed to meet many of the DHS workers’ standards. They stated a lack of bonding with the children; they commented on the Webers’ appearance, which was “unkempt;” they made “little eye contact” and they claimed the children made less vocalizations and attempts to stand up when around their parents than with the foster parents.

They stated: “Both children are very attached to their foster parents … both children do not appear to have a strong bond with their parents.”

The Webers agree. They say the time spent away, the limited visits and the children’s young age have contributed to their lack of proper bonding.

“Other DHS kids may seem like they are bonding better with their parents because they are older,” said Alyssa.

“Our boys don’t look at us as parents, they look at us as the Monday babysitters,” said Chris, adding that a joyful DHS employee told him one of the boys said “hi dada” to the foster parent. “It was good news because they’re talking but it was a slap in the face, it was like saying ‘Guess what, your kids don’t believe in you.”

Alyssa said, “It hurts. It doesn’t feel right. I carried them for practically 9 months. We’re the ones who created them. I went through the c-section and the recovery time. I spent all those nights taking care of them and I make a single mistake and someone else gets to have my kids.”

In order to improve their bonding skills and meet DHS requirements, the Webers took a class called “How to bond with your child,” which recommended parents to “use your babies as weights to benchpress” among other things. They also had several meetings with parenting counselors.

Their efforts were in vain. DHS stated that they had failed to demonstrate their newly acquired skills; for example, by not using the DHS toys. “We used the toys. And we have recorded every visit until DHS told us we weren’t allowed to record anymore,” said Chris.

In the first part of 2010, the State’s plan continued to be returning the kids to their home and the couple had made some progress in DHS’ opinion: Alyssa was engaged in counseling and taking medication, and they had taken parenting classes. They were ready for Aiden and Zander to come home. “We baby proofed our whole house,” said Chris.

Then, in June ’10, there was an unexpected turn of events: DHS recommended that the plan for Aiden and Zander be changed from return to parent to adoption, based on visit observations and the fact that Chris had failed to get a job and attend counseling.

“It all changed when the foster parents said they wanted to be permanent guardians for the boys,” said Chris. “DHS always had their mind set on adoption,” added Alyssa.

Indeed, a May 2009 court document stated that adoption was a concurrent plan. “It doesn’t seem right when it says that that early,” said Chris.

They believe that their boys are very desirable candidates for adoption because they’re younger than most kids who enter the foster care system and they’re identical twins.

“They won’t remember their parents if they’re adopted out now. On a little one they can change their last names, they can make them believe they’re the real parents. And identical twin boys are like gold for people because not everybody can have twins and twins get the most attention,” said Alyssa, adding that people used to stop her constantly to praise her babies.

A juvenile court judge will make a final decision August 30th at 9:00 a.m.

“Chris has a job now and he got into counseling,” said Alyssa. Chris is confident that the boys will come home this time, but Alyssa said, “I don’t want to get my hopes up.”

Added to their fears is the fact that Alyssa is now seven months pregnant. She is expecting another boy, who will carry the name of Iven James.

“I should be happy about this pregnancy but all I am is terrified. DHS told me I’m red flagged. They told me, ‘If you’re gonna have it in the hospital we’re gonna be there ready to pick it up,’” she said. “They are saying we are not stable enough to have either the twins or Iven.”

Gene Evans, communications officer for Child Welfare, said it’s very rare for DHS to be in the hospital when an infant is born, but he said, “It does happen if there’s a danger but not because another child is in DHS.”

He continued, “Every case is different. Every case starts with someone reporting a child is in danger.” He also said that a report could come from a DHS employee if they thought either parent presented a danger and that they are in fact mandatory reporters.

Evans said that potential issues could be drugs, alcohol or even mental illness, including depression, but DHS would need a reason beyond just the depression per se, such as deeming the mother unable to make decisions. “It’s about the mom’s behavior,” he said.

The Webers plan to have Alyssa’s father adopt Iven before he’s born, but they haven’t started the process because of a lack of resources, and a hope that the judge will rule in their favor before they need to resort to that.

At her young age of twenty, she is thinking about having a hysterectomy. “I’m thinking about having my tubes tied after this one because of all the troubles with DHS. I’m too terrified at having more babies yanked from me,” she said. The Webers wanted a large family.

“We had a lot of hopes and dreams for our kids, like how we would spend our first holidays,” said Alyssa. “We haven’t had a single holiday with them. I’ve requested them, and I said I would agree to having supervision the entire time, and nothing. They say ‘we’re closed for that.’”

The Webers have a clean record. “We don’t do drugs, we’re completely clean people,” said Chris, adding that they are peaceful people and that he never even curses. “In over seven years he’s yelled at me once or twice, and that was only to get my attention,” added Alyssa.

They think their financial situation acted against them, particularly in their inability to hire a lawyer. “I got a court-appointed attorney. They work for the state, doing what the state wants,” said Alyssa.

There is one loophole, but they’re not confident it will help. Chris is Native American, Ojibwa, Black Foot, Cherokee and Cheyenne. However, he doesn’t have an official statement of his background. “I’ve been trying to find my grandfather my whole life,” he said.

DHS rules apply differently to Native Americans. “It would be up to the tribe to decide whether or not the boys can come home,” he said. “But it’s up to DHS.”

The requirement to achieve Native American status may vary. “In some cases it could be 1/2 and for others it could be 1/16,” stated Evans.

The May 2009 record stated that DHS was “still researching whether the [Indian Child Welfare Act] would apply to this case.” The Webers have yet to receive an answer.

Though they believe their case is unfair, they say sometimes DHS is justified, as in Chris’s case. He was abused as a child and grew up in foster homes.

“DHS is taking an Oregon kid unrightfully,” said Alyssa. “I believe that DHS Child Welfare in the state of Oregon has become corrupt with either money or power and are beginning to discriminate against young parents or parents with minor mental health issues.”

According to Chris, DHS would have returned the kids faster if he had left Alyssa. “The judge said my mental disabilities don’t inhibit my ability to parent, but Alyssa’s disability would.”

The Webers owe DHS a few thousand dollars for their boys’ stay. “$365 dollars per month for each. It’s like a daycare fee,” they agreed.

States fund their own child protective services, with large amounts of help from the federal government. Additionally, states receive federal incentives for increasing the number of foster children who are adopted out.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, Oregon received $220,000 in 2009 for increasing its rate of adoptions compared to previous years.

“They say that they are there to help put families back together but that is a lie,” Alyssa stated. “They are there to rip them apart and get the money while doing so.”

      Listen. I am from mississippi and I had problems living there. I lost my children to a former drug dealer. Yes DHS gave custody of my kids to a former drug dealer in 2002. I was 22 at the time uneducated. That is what they do. They prey on the young parents instead of helping them. Today I have a high school diploma and I am in college right now working on my bachelors in Business Science and Management. The father still has no high school diploma.

      When are we as parents going to actually have parental rights? DHS wanted a psychiatric evaluation why?…Oh let me guess…I was seen on a rooftop clucking like a chicken? Pleeeaaase. It’s like you are guilty until proven innocent in this ” Third Reich” government agency. I actually heard that a monetary bonus is given to caseworkers that remove children and place them into fostercare homes. Which in turn would come to light that there is no evidence and just hearsay in multiple, and I mean multiple, cases. Granted they are needed in some cases but it”s my opinion that we no longer live in the “LAND OF THE FREE”. What constitutional rights? Whatever you do folks…retain legal counsel that is not court appointed. It’s my opinion, as is this whole message entirely, that DHS preys on the less fortunate or lower class or uneducated. Why else would DHS appoint a “PUBLIC PRETENDER” I mean public defender without even asking? Can you say CORRUPTION?

      I too been through the same situation. SHARON DORFMAN was her name and she was everything but nice and polite. I too was a young parent and DHS used that against me. My parents were alcoholics and I was staying at my husbands family house at the time when DHS took me & my child out of my parents legal custody and put me in a safe house even though I was not even living in their house. Then DHS decided to flip it around on me and they said that I was not doing everything to protect my daughter. Sharon manipulated the story with the he said and she said,trying to get something out of it. I had to go through counseling and all of that! Until I realized everything on the report that I had to ask for because she refused to give it to me was false. I had called her supervisor and got it from her. That is when I had to get the law involved because I was not about to lose my baby because this lady did not approve of my age, which was 18. I got a lawyer involved and almost immediately the case was closed. Her plans were to keep me in the system until I was 21 and to put my daughter in foster care. Keep in mind that I did nothing wrong and I was living in a perfect household but one phone call from my brothers highschool landed me in this ridculous situtation. I was about to start a job at the time. Sharon was nothing but rude to me the second she met me. She would lay my daughter on her belly and throw objects at her face to see if she would flinch. SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW THAT IT SUPPOSE TO WORK?!SHE WAS AT THAT TIME 3 MONTHS OLD AND SHE WAS WIPPING STUFFED ANIMALS AND BABY RATTLES AT HER FACE!….Anyways the point is that I WON & I WAS RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING! SHAROn had no right and all those DHS employees want to do is break up a family so they can get a pay check and say they did something good. I was 18 at the time, family would not talk to me and my husbands family would not because they thought I had something to do with it.
      TO SHARON:
      NOW LOOK AT ME! I AM MARRIED WITH 2 KIDS AND A GREAT CAREER PLUS I HAVE A DEGREE. I AM HALF WAY THERE TO OWNING MY HOUSE TOO I BET YOU LOOOVEEE THIS!!!
      …People involved in DCFS make sure you get a second opinion from a lawyer because these people will ruin your lives and rub it in your face!

    I wonder if DHS is aware that losing a baby often causes PTSD, anxiety and depression. This happens all the time with the parents I work with whose babies have died before, during or after birth for any reason.

        I went threw a session when my three boys were placed out my home, and the sad thing is this the system is here not to help us parents but rather to see us fail, but you as parents have to get educated on your rights as the parents. Yes the court may have jurisdiction for the moment but you still have your rights as the parent. If you don’t agree with your case worker ask for another one that is your right ask for a team descion making meeting and that is when you bring ALL you concerns to the table. Dont just sit there and allow these people to take your babies from you, believe me if God intended for them to have kids he would have gave them their own. I always kept notes documents and I had a journal just for the cps system. Keep in touch with your lawyer always let him / her know what is going on and if that person is not doing their job they too can be replaced. also see how can you get a parent support partner you want a person that have been threw what you are now going threw and they successfully had their kids returned back to them. Just know this is not a easy fight because you are going up against the goverment and they are liers and they do treat us as if we are uneducated, but God is above all them and I had to place my faith and trust in God and I had to pray until God became bigger than the goverment and know that the goverment is a speck to the God I serve and because of that my children was taken 9 /07 and they returned my children back to me given me full custody of ALL my kids 3 / 09 all I can say is God bless and I hope this will help some body.

    I’m so sorry about your situation. I used to believe that I could trust our justice system but 3 years ago found out, the hard way, I couldn’t. The state of Michigan says it wants to put families back together too but it’s a lie. They refused to even listen to our story. All they did was threaten to get their own way. They really didn’t want the truth.

    CPS is a typical parasitic government entity. It says it wants to “stop child abuse” but if it did, the entity would die. It needs child abuse, that is what sustains it, that is its food, its nourishment. Parasites like CPS need to promote further family turmoil and disruption and substance abuse, so they cant grow bigger. its just typical government.

      LISTE TO ME, ALL OF YOU! THE ONE WAY TO PUT A STOP TO DHS TAKING YOUR CHILDREN IS TO NEVER COOPERATE WITH THEM IN THE BEGINNING!! WHEN THEY SHOW UP AT YOUR DOOR AND WANT TO COME IN, TELL THEM TO COME BACK WHEN THEY HAVE A COURT ORDER!! THEY WILL THREATEN AND LIE TO YOU, BUT DO NOT CAVE. WHEN AT YOUR HOME, THEY ARE NOT THERE LOOKING FOR THINGS TO PROVE THEIR CASE WRONG, BUT TO PROVE THAT THE ABUS IS HAPPENING. THEREFORE, ONLY THE IMPERFECTIONS IN YOUR HOME WILL BE REPORTED!

      TAKE IT FROM A FORMER SOCIAL WORKER WHO QUIT MICHIGAN DHS BECAUSE OF DECIETFUL AND LYING BEHAVIORS BY THE DHS WORKERS. ONE OF MY CO WORKERS SAID TO ME ONE DAY, ” I AM SO SICK OF STRUGGLING TO HAVE A BABY WHILE I WATCH THESE MENTALLY ILL AND SEXUALLY ABUSED TEENAGED TRASH HAVE THEM LEFT AND RIGHT!” I COMPLAINED TO MY SUPERVISOR WHO TOLD ME I WASN’T BEING SENSITIVE ENOUGH.

      YOU LADIES NEED TO GET A LAWYER AND QUICK. ALSO, AS SOON AS A CHILD IS BORN, ESTABLISH CUSTODY IMMEDIATELY, BECAUSE A FAMILY JUDGE’S COURT ORDER TRUMPS THE JUVENILE COURT.

SO with total biased and impartial judgement on behalf of DHS they took my child. Gave me a courtdate to appear which was less than 22 hours later. (probably hoping I couldn’t show) Am I really that bad of a parent if for the last year + they’re sending me written DHS letterhead letters to ask me if I could consider obtaining custody of a relative? HERE’S THE KICKER>>>they court appointed me my nephews DHS attorney!!! LOL!!! Looks like the left hand doesn’t know what the right is doing in their office.

    DHS is out of control. They believe they can walk into your home and do or say whatever it is they want. Make unsubstantiated accusations and rule over facts with their opinions. I’m so glad I have never had my children taken from me as I would fight for them. Legally at first but if time began to pass and all else failed, it would treat it as a military operation. I would see my children as being taken hostage so as a father I would be so compelled to act in a manner that would allow me to gain possesion of my children then leave this country behind. It sounds extreme and it is but I will spend my days in the ground or prison before anyone other than me or my wife decides what is best from me babies.

    Dear Chris and Alyssa, I am glad you have posted your misfortune on the Web. As well as others here too, let Me please introduce myself, and my first child, my daughter who has be taken from me from birth.

    My name is Brittany Marie Koltun-Roybal, my daughter astoriella grace Koltun-Roybal.

    I have heard alot about these silver-tongued snakes (dhs) from multiple people from my community. but it seems like nothing is done and kept hush-hush. For the reason that where I am at, (I don’t know what county your in) curry county, has no juvenile law department for child welfare… There for they have absolute say in the court. no matter what you do ”jumping through their hoops” means nada, except more except more excuses and gibberish stories to the judge as to why you cannot have your child(ren) back, for this reason the courts will just have to comply with whatever dhs may request. especially since everyone in this town knows everyone and are all Buddy-Buddy which doesn’t help.

    I have had the same story guideline as you, except I had come up here to start a,new life for her, I was 18 years old and pregnant with her when I arrived, I did nI know anyone but knew how to get my resources, this town seemingly appeared perfect, everything I wanted her to have growing up. Nobody told me about the baby thieves it has though.

    I had gotten everything she needed within the short time before my due date by myself, they were notified I was in labor at th r local hospital immediately, I had eight hours of natural labor with her, she was born at 4:30 a.m. two hours later I was drugged in my i.v. K (I would say a bit to much) for stitches. Not, after dhs showed up around 8:30. At the time I was way too overly exhausted, and because of the anesthetic drug, pretty incoherent, they had tricked me and said they had nothing to do with taking children, I didn’t know here in Oregon Cps and welfare services worked together(I’m from California). They said they were there to help me, and asked if there was anything I needed, and of course said yes, what new mom doesn’t need more resources? Being drugged and tired how I was, they told me I had to sign some paper work to get the benefits, I said okay and they tricked me, I had subconsciously signed my daughter away to them.
    After they had left, Tori and I had rested, the next day we awaited for the word when we could be discharged to go our home, the time of day for that had past, so I asked, they told me they didn’t know. Well I ended up getting a surprise visit from the same people, saying neither Tori or I could go home, I asked them why my peculiar daughter and I couldn’t go? they couldn’t tell me, they had said. There days later they tricked me again and took her while I was showering and she was around the corner out of my sight, but close enough to hear her fuss, I had heard her scream and quickly put my robe back on to rush to her, I saw she wasn’t in her neapolitan bassinet and heard her scream again, still wet from my shower I attentively rand to where I heard her piercing wail, they had her in an area of the hospital I didn’t know about, and had a sheriff blocking my way telling Mr it was unsafe for me to see my own baby, the case worker standing not not far behind his with a big sarcastic smile and a mocking wave as if to say bye bye baby, unfortunately none saw this, and she then served me paper for court saying I had to show up the next day or my parental rights will be taken.

    She is now 10 months old, and I am still fighting to get her back, I finish what they ask of me, but theu give me one more task after another, reporting that I have done nothing to show progress and saying,I have not complied,p.m. And if I silent do the next task they treats n me they can end the case sooner.

    I turned 19 as of Jan 2012, and her case is being terminated at the end of October, my fiancee and I are expecting another child around late November, and they are threatening even if tories case is closed, they will take this little boy… To this day they won’t give me a straight answer on why they exactly took her, and now say to me ”that was then, this is now” and pretty much tell me to shut up.
    my fiancee is not tories father, but has put a great deal of time and effort to save her and this little one of ours, as well as keep his twin boys safe that are with his ex. He is a tad older than I too, 27.

    N
    I have thought to take this to the big time courts, if I do lose her illegally, but the only way I can do that is petition an affidavit, and ask for people that have dealt with or are dealing with this , not be afraid and stand up for your family and little ones to save them Frome this mentally decapitating catastrophe, I’m losing my daughter temporarily, but on hopes of making things right for all, and be justly reunited with our lost ones and one who are looking at being lost.
    PROTEST, PETITION, AND CONTEST TO.THE STATE OF OREGON COURT OF APPEALS. SO THAT JUSTICE, EQUALITY, AND HUMANITY, CAN STAND FOR THEIR TRUE MEANING.

    have any info, please contact me with my email MARYKOLTUN@ART.NET, ESPECIALLY IF YOU WANT THEM BACK, THIS IS GOING TO TAKE A COUPLE TO FOUR MONTHS, BECAUSE OF OUR NEWBORN, AND HEED TO FATHER INFORMNATION PROOF OF EVIDENCE (FILES) ON YOU CASES WHICH IF YOU HAVE AND OPEN CASE CAN OBTAIN FROM YOUR LAWYER OR CASE WORKER WITHOUT WORD. IF YOU CAN’T REACH ME AT THAT EMAIL, TRY TORI1019HAWK@GMAIL.COM OR CHECK.ME ON FACE BOOK. GIVE IT SOME THOUGHT.

    DHS kills the hopes and dreams of not just the parents whom they stole their child, but for whole families. Our judge ordered my husband and I custody of our niece and DHS refused to place her in our home because we wouldn’t take all four children (who had been separated the whole time). I couldn’t afford four additional children in my home, and they refused to pay me for it. Then their excuse was that we were not Latino, we were white (as her mother is). The judge once again ordered DHS to place her in our home. I said I would take one more (giving me a total of 4 children to feed) and they still said they would not do it unless I took at least 3. I didn’t have a big enough car for 6 kids! They were paying crazy amounts of money to each separate foster parent for special needs care, yet refused to help me in any way shape or form. My husband and I are well educated and are middle class, but could not take on that many children without financial help.
    Long story short, my niece is now adopted far away and noone has any contact with her. Maybe someday her favorite build a bear’s hidden address will bring her home.

    A couple other notes – there were family that could take an extra child, keeping them in the family, but none of us were equipped. The children would have been together more than they are now, 2 still rotting away in foster care. I walked away from the situation and know that when they are 18, their aunt will help them through college.

    I find it hard to believe that an underfunded department who does not have the means to help children that are in dire trouble (situations I’ve seen) wastes their time randomly harassing people and taking babies. I would bet that in every instance brought up here, there are multiple reasons why the DHS were concerned, and why they came out, and why they took children. The parents simply don’t want to take responsibility for it — which is probably a huge element in the problems themselves. Drug use/abuse? Crime? Mental illness? Inability to take care or yourself? Inability to make wise decisions and properly care for a child? I bet one or all of the above are true.

    Not to mention paranoia and delusions of grandeur.

I knew from the day the children were placed with me there were things really wrong including signs of possible abuse, neglect, trauma, marks etc. from a previous foster home. When I questioned some of the things, I was told stories by the agencies to explain scars, etc. I tried to get them evaluated by MH provider and have been held up by DHS. I took the one child to the doctors many, many times over chronic illness and child even ended up hospitalized for a week. I talked to all the doctors and nurses I could. They also told me their frustration of reporting abuse to the these agencies who would lie and say they would look into signs of abuse reported even by them and the same kids would come back again and again from the same situations. One of the phycian’s didn’t believe one of the explanations I was given about marks on my FS’s body either which was blamed on a food allergy. The doctor ordered tests to prove it was a lie and it was. On the same day I found out that lie, I found out from one of my kids that the same child had reported to him being abused and beaten by the previous FM. I have been working closely with the chidlren’s advocate and attorney who know all to well we are dealing with corrupt people who do not do their jobs right and abuse their power. They even lie to the judge in court and don’t follow the court orders either–they are really brazen. The children have made a major transforation for the better in my care during the time they have been with me and have bonded closely with my family. And do you know what I got recently for all my work and efforts to advocate for my children and trying to get them help and get to the bottom of their trauma? DHS now threatening to have the kids removed from me and threatenting to have ME evaluated! I was basically told to shut up if I didn’t want to lose the kids. The lawyers that advocate for these kids and the doctors who treat these kids and deal with CPS or DHS, now all too well they do not always do what is best for the kids or their families–whether they are birth parents or good foster parents. The bad ones get away with murder sometimes, but those of us who are good people and want the best for the kids in our care, well, if you open your mouth to much, they have their ways of stalling things or threatening you. We had a court order by a judge to have our adoption finalized by a certain month and guess what? The more I questioned things about my kids health or brought things to their attention and took them to doctors and tried to get help for them, the more the agencies conveniently found ways to delay our finalization and now they are threatening to take them away because I called them out on all the lies and misinformation they told me. Thankfully, I have a couple of attorneys working to help me and the kids out. And because I got confirmation on at least one lie about possible abuse and cover up and the child disclosing acts of abuse by old FP, I was told by the kids attorney I have to report it to the state–and who is the legal guardian for the kids–the state. So how do you think we are going to fair? Don’t be so quick to judge these parents whether they be birth or foster and why their kids are taken away. A mayor in a major US city said the DHS in that city was one of the most corrupt organizaitions in the country–they still are.

      I agree to an extent…yet I also have been at the receiving end of suspicious DHS workers. I was a young mother and I am Native American. I worked in a day care all throughout high school and as an employee, was required to take child neglect/abuse classes, along with early childhood development classes. I knew all about when a baby or toddler is supposed to get check ups, which developmental milestones to watch for, how to perform a baby Heimlich…and so much more. God knows how many diapers I’ve changed (excluding my own childrens’), how many bottles of formula/warmed breast milk I’ve prepared, how many cuts and scrapes i’ve cleaned, how many stories Ive told or songs I’ve sung, how many questions Ive answered (and kids ask a LOT) how many tears I’ve wiped…all for other peoples children. To sum it up, I knew EXACTLY what I was walking into with motherhood, even though I was only 19 when my son was born (completely unexpected pregnancy, but I believe in the sacredness of life and in the responsibility of a mother, so abortion/adoption was never an option). I had a full time job, was in college, and could very well handle my responsibilities. However….when my son was 2 he got a curious rash on his bottom that did not appear to be diaper rash, then later would not sit down and cried every time he went to the bathroom. I thought he had an infection or something so I took him to the E.R., where they suspected he had been molested by my husband, who was at home with our newborn daughter. Rather than inform me/interview me, they called in CPS and filed an investigation. It was a NIGHTMARE. I almost didn’t walk out of that hospital with my son. I was treated like TRASH and interrogated. I called our pediatrician to ask her to personally examine my son, and she did, at one in the morning (she was my pediatrician growing up and attended my wedding). It turned out my son has eczema really bad, which had gotten infected as diaper cream makes it worse (which I’d been putting on it, thinking it was diaper rash) and an abscess had developed in his rectum from the infection. There was no evidence whatsoever of child abuse (as there wouldn’t have been anyways) and STILL, I was treated like crap. After I’d calmed down and thanked the CPS workers for investigating, saying “If my son had been molested, it would be your job to keep him safe, and I respect what you do for children who are in situations like that.” the woman straight up said “Is that so? Interesting.” Rolled her eyes, and walked away. I sincerely believe we were treated like that because I am Native American (which later I found out Indian Child Welfare should have been called, not CPS) and my husband is African, and our children are black. I also was a teen mom and it being the middle of the night, I showed up in my pajamas, which probably made me seem sloppy.

    Wow these people are going down. Just hearing that story makes me not want to take my child anywhere. There are so many bad people in the world. My little sister took pictures of my two younger boys. They had little bruses from rough housing. I took them to the doctor and(you make sure you tell the doctor cps took your children wrongfully) sent the pictures to dhs. I asked her why she would do this and she said it is manatory at her job. She lost her Job 4 months later and she is sick. Point is people should make sure it is abuse before they call dhs. Cause dhs will take your children any way they can. I am fighting and have been Fighting for my four boys 3 years now. I had been fighting for my youngest 2 years. That case was dismissed.Never quit Fighting. I pray these parents get their twins back. Them poor babies. You have to stay strong.

      My sister sent the pictures to dhs. The doctor said the boys were rough housing right there in the doctor office. And she believes that is where the burses came from. They even took my children from Spencer Iowa to Sioux city to get a blue sceen test done. To see where the bruses came from. After saying I was bitting them. I said I would never do anything like that. The test showed the bruses did not come from bitting them. These people are unreal they go threw so many test and spend so much money to come up with what ever they are trying to come up with. They also took hair samples. That was negative but just more money they spent. They have power only God should have. Sorry about the miss speld words :)

    I live in MN & the Wright County social service dept is a JOKE! I actually have merit to sue them & we are really thinking about it. We definitely want 2 of the workers fired & 1 of the GAL’s. These are people who aren’t concerned over you,your kids or any truth. They are all about the money.
    Our story wasn’t about them wanting our son,they wouldn’t take him. The police were called,I reported over & over again,so did many doctors & therapists…yet the county wouldn’t help. Finally I called a neighboring county. They got our county to come & place our son,but we were tricked by Wright County.
    Our oldest child was molesting our younger kids & the officials refused to help. We were judged so horribly by some of the church community & by 1 of our oldests teachers. Hello! This kids was molesting 6known kids & he was the victim to them.it infuriated me! Turns out he was molesting kids at the school too. He had everyone eating out of his hands. He scored 120 I.Q. & had danced around seasoned therapists to tunes that would shock you. You thought Penn State was bad,this kid is worse!
    Long story shorter,we didn’t want him back in our home,but the county played us well. They didn’t care that our 5yr old had ulcers & couldn’t sleep,was turning into a wild kid when the oldest had to go home with us. We…(I) flipped out on the social worker & accidently let known my plans of going to court & putting a CHIPS on the oldest. They beat me to it & in the end the kid is with his grandfather & grandmother…oh by the way,the ones who molested him!! He told the county & they just wanted to dump him & stop having to be responsible. The place he was placed said they had never seen a child as sick as him & now my friends he is free with no charges,learning how to victimize more kids & just having all the freedom in the world by his preditators hands to hurt anyone he wishes….the government is messed up. They are just messed up!

    the dhs/cps does not give a crap about protecting your children they make hundreds of millions of dollars a yr. by selling your kids. They are the only govt. agency that does not have to pledge to defend and protect the constitution obviously money means way more to them than protecting American families and the constitution, and anyone who stands up and makes a stand against these bastards “commits suicide” is found dead thats the kind of money that is being filtered thru this organization of slime bags. And the nice little case workers that tell you they want to see your families reunited are getting large bonuses to make sure that does not happen. There was a congress woman from Georgia Nancy Shaeffer not sure if I spelled her name correctly she was going to war against these pigs and exposing them, her and her husband were found dead in there hotel room. Of course it was ruled as a suicide. Bottom line dont jump thru the hoops they want you to go thru they are not going to give your kids back. The only way to get them back is to pray to God and fight. How do you fight ? you expose them, they’re like a bunch of cock roaches if you turn the lights on on them they are gonna run like the little roaches that they are unite with everyone you know in your state, or area thats going thru the same thing, and start going to the media, passing out flyers all over your, area of what their doing to you guys,”MAKE SOME NOISE ,GET ANGRY”, they stole/kidnapped your kids, and their making you, and us “taxpayers” pay for their crimes and their laughing in your face,” all the way to the bank”, while their taking your kids away to their rape houses. Its something like 70% more likely fore kids to be raped physically abused and grow up to be pedophiles drug dealers or gangbangers in dhs custody than it it if they grow up in their own homes. I dont think anyone wants that for their kids. Remember they have no plans on giving your kids back, you have to fight for them. There are hundreds of thousands of ppl if not millions who are going thru the same thing as you, your now a huge group and millions of more ppl who will join you in the fight if you will expose what they are doing to your kids. I HOPE YOU ALL DO SOMETHING.

    I am a stable single parent of 3 who had a bad reaction to an antidepressant while my children were in my care. My children and I are inseparable, I was freaking out because my baby was going to start school and my doctor reccommended and anti-depressant. After a week on it, I had a really bad night – my heart was racing, I was sweaty, my muscles were moving on their own, and my breast started lactating. I looked it up and decided to stop taking the meds. I was up all night and decided that the next day the kids and I would go fishing to relieve some stress. I had really bad anxiety and was dizzy and someone reported me acting weird to the cops who arrested me because they thought I was on DRUGS!!!! They arrested me and dragged me in front of my children who were told to knock off their crying. They searched my car lookin for drugs and guess what? NONE! Dhs was called and my children were taken away. I was charged with neglect because they said I was not capable of supervising properly. I have no record, I have a job and home of 6 years. I spend my free time volunteering at the school. My children are the smartest in their classss and the best in all their sports teams!!! Dhs says I am an amazing patent and they have never seen a person like myself come through their offices. My children are crying themselves to sleep every night and having nightmares. We were a very very close family who snuggled at every moment we could. Dhs is causing so so so much damage to these kids it is unbearable for me to watch them suffer for being innocent. Dhs took temporary custody because I am fighting the cops on the charges and have a private investigator on the case and they say that shows I am minimizing my responsibility. I have a mental and drug and alcohol evaluation which I will pass with flying colors and then what? They say they have to prove that the environment is risk free. Well the odds that I have never had a history of any criminal activity and the stability of my job and home and the activism in the community should prove that, don’t ya think???? My children will be forever scarred by this!!! There must be another way to prove a risk free environment without great extent of damage to the emotional well being of a child. My Dhs worker agrees, but she says she must go through the steps!! Well, this system must be motified. They are creating a situation by damaging these children that will now require counseling from them as she has suggested. They are securing their jobs and growing government and control. At the cost of my children’s innocence!!! How dare you people! Take a deeper look. Weigh the odds. If you did, you would not be able to sleep at night, because you would know in your heart that what you are doing is not right for my babies. Do you lie awake knowing they are crying themselves to sleep, I bet ya don’t. But I do, because I really care, I am not paid to care, I am not a robot doing some JOB! I was given a gift to love my children from God, something that most childless Dhs workers do not know of. I really cannot believe this is America. So sad.

    Here is my story. My name is Nicole Espino Lopez I’m 28 yes old my husband is 23 we have been involved in cps for 14 months. It all happened when two of my children came into my life after 7years after the fact that they were stolen from me by my ex husband Reynaldo Antonio Alvarado abrego. My two children came back in my life threw a phone call from cps. As a parent a mother I first response to the phone call was ” where are they? Are they ok? Can I come get them?” I was told by Danielle turnage of Cary north Carolina cps that the children were fine but they had been taken into custody because of the abuse that Reynaldo Alvarado and his wife Olga de la rosa has afflicted upon the children. At that time I was told that my beautiful babies where locked in closets beat and that my son lexx had been abused to the point to where the child had two black eyes. Upon further decovery and going into the case more and more I never realized that my unborn daughter was also going to be placed in to custody of the state. As soon as my daughter Norma was born and released from the hospital I woke to having cps in my house requesting that my hold be turned over to them. Now I have done every little things they have asked and more I have supported my children all the way through. Now here’s the big deal breaker the two children I speak of hat were stolen from me don’t even know that I am their mother even after a year of courts and chois from these hell bound ppl my children still haven’t meet me. They refuse to send my 10 month old daughter to her grandmother because they believe now that I’m Prego once again that they will be able to obtain custody of this child as well well I have gotten smarter along the way in this struggle and I have realized that the only way to keep my unborn son and still parent him I would need to go out of the state to give birth to which they would not be able to find me due tithe fact they have no jurisdiction outside of the state of north Carolina. I’m sad that 2 children that are mine haven’t even had the chance of knowing me or seeing me. I believe that in my heart these people are here to hurt us and not help us. They have torn me and my husbands relationship all to pieces they have even told my husband to divorce me on several different occasions and yet we don’t understand why. They say I’m mentally unstable to have my kids but yet they have and have been the cause for my stress depression and many other factors related to my mental stability. I have never had a problem raising my children I have never spanked my kids or even raised my voice and for them to Denie me rights to my kids is just plain bs. We have crawled through every ditch and jumped through every loop hole they have thrown at us and yet we are still told no there is more that needs to be done before your daughter can be returned. I’m not only fighting for my daughter but I’m fighting for two children who don’t even know that I’m even here and that I’m the reason why they have new games and clothes toys and anything they ask for. I have given and given and yet nobody has even tried to meet me half way. What do I do I feel as if I’m lost in the woods without any survival tips at all. If anyone knows what I can do or what I should do please email me nicolelopez919@gmail.com please share my story I want it to be known that we are all alone when it comes to this brick wall that we are fighting against. Thank you for your time and I do hope to get some emails back. With love Faye Nicole Espino Lopez

    The reason you don’t have your children is because you don’t have the bribe money to stop these people who want your children, and the people willing, and given an authority to do so, to steal your children from you with the help of judges who control the police. The other reason is you”re peaceful law abiding citizens. You won’t set an example of these people. They’ve stolen your children and your paralyzed in fear of taking them back. You need to show these people what a hole in their gut feels like. What does a bear do when you get between her and her cub? Your children have been stolen by a corrupt system in a corrupt government and you and your children will pay the price for that.

    I am so sorry about your situation. Went through this myself…fought every step of the way.CPS went to our home while we were at work , based on a anonymous retaliation call. CPS accompanied by five Virginia deputies demanded entrance to our home and upon gaining entrance after three hours they seized only three or four small children from our home and took them to foster care even though relatives(one relative even being a deputy in another town was available to take the children). The entire incident was tape recorded in case we wanted to file suit we had some pretty incriminating evidence against the deputies and caseworker. We immediately hired a court reported to take minutes in the hearings. Always retain a court reporter….CPS is the most corrupt agency you will ever do business with…I was informed of this by my own attorney. Every thing has to be in writing from them and never sign or agree to anything unless you are guilty. Most CPS cases are simply about the Title Iv funds…not your child’s” best interests”. Make all correspondence to cps in writing certified..especially complaints.Make sure you have a copy of all documents or letters you send. Demand your children be placed with a family member or relative. Get them out of foster care as soon as possible. The longer they remain in foster care the more likely they are to be harmed and CPS does not care as long as they get the funding. Take away the foster money and service provider money and they will no longer want your child. We did get our children back after going through living hell . Our cases were “unfounded “. Your children should not have to go through this…..unless they were truly being abused and if this were the case I find it hard to believe you would be on this site trying desperately to find a way to get them back. This is a secret court ..very sneaky and corrupt…do not agree to service plans that you and your child don’t need..stand your ground. In court ..with the court reporter there state in court for the record that since the court can not prove their cases you demand your children be returned and you do not agree to unneeded services. They pulled this on me. I stated in court I did not intend to help CPS intentionally harm my children so they could get their funding, I also stated in court that since CPS could not prove their case, I did not intend to sign or verbally agree to counselling or any other test or stipulations they tried to impose on us and our children. We are sure the Judge and that court will remember us for a long time. We did file a lengthy complaint concerning the corrupt actions of the Judge . She should be removed from her appointed position for judicial malfeasance. The tape will be turned over to appropriate agency since deputies sat in our living room for three hours discussing other cases and how they were going to shoot some ladies dog .One last thing we might add.. CPS targets anyone on food stamps, in a shelter , it you are low income you are a target. Your child’s school also works with CPS to drum up business. Just to make you aware…CPS very rarely goes after children whose parents can afford a good attorney. Also… 75% of foster care children end up in prison at one point or another. A large percentage are sexually abused or physically abused . I can name three or four foster care homes ofF the top of my head where abuse goes on and has been reported to know avail. Case in short….federal government does not make good parent. God Bless and watch over you and your children we pray .

    After a year of fighting I found out that my children were never going to be returned to me. It hurt so badly my babies are mixed with Mexican and white they all have blonde hair and blue eyes which seems to be the flavor of the year. I did everything in my power I fought cps to the fullest and still in the end they took my children without a cause. I’m currently pregnant and it hurts that I signed papers but I had to because I can’t allow them to take my unborn child. All I want now is to live in peace with my new baby and my husband. My heart has been ripped out of my chest my children are forever lost in the system. I will never know what they smell like or who their idol is?!!. It hurts me to the point where it feels as if ice has slowly started to form on my heart. My children are my world they are everything and to know that the state of North Carolina could just take them and not allow me a fighting chance to get them back is wrong. I did everything they asked I jumped through this loop and that loop and dodged this and that and still at the end if the day they still told me we have plans for adoption for the children. They refused to send my daughter to Texas with her grand mom all because this unborn child they wanted as well in their grasps. I hate myself for what I did I truly do I hate that I signed the papers to save this child from them but I knew they were not going to give me any of the kids back. These people are evil why do they do this to us? I love my babies I have never hit or spanked any of my children I have never raised my voice or talked harshly to my babies and yet they came and took my child away from me. They judged me for my past but they didn’t see me for me. Yes everyone has a past who doesn’t ?!!!!… I just don’t understand why and how these baby snatchers can legally take our kids and do as they please with them. Why is it that people are so cruel ?

    Has anyone ever had to deal with The Partnership for Strong Families in Starke,Florida before? They are just as bad. Believe me,I know. They got a call on us,made us move because my husband was working on our mobile home,checked out the new place,approved it,and closed the case. Then,gets another call from the woman who in the same duplex,comes in,and says we have to move out of where they approved. Granted,my husband got arrested for fighting another man after we had to move yet again,but they tried to say it was domestic violence,saying that he hit me. They LIED. While he was in jail,I had a job and our children and I had a house we lived in. My husband’s mother offers to let the children stay with her for the weekend and 10 minutes after I leave to go take of important matters,his mother takes our children to PFSF and tells them that I was living on the streets with our children,that my children had been with her for 3 days,that my children hadn’t ate in 3 days,and said she didn’t know where I was. I get a call telling me that they sheltered my children pending investigation of what was reported to them. My husband gets released,we get a case plan,we go threw all their hoops for years,then finally get them back after they decide to pay for us to get into an apartment on the 3rd floor and I was pregnant with our daughter,Emilie. The apartment was $700 a month,we had to keep a landline,keep cell phones,and all kinds of other stuff. Emilie was born sooner than expected and we had to rush out getting things we thought we had more time for. We did wind up losing the apartment and went to an apartment type thing at a motel. Emilie passed away at 2 months and 9 days old and PFSF steps in after her funeral,takes our children,and says it’s pending the investigation of Emilie. They get the report showing that Emilie passed away from SIDS and then made up new reasons to keep our other children. They terminated our Parental Rights and,get this,the woman who adopted our children just so happens to be related to the woman who made a report on us when we lived in the duplex years before. Plus,the woman who adopted our children made fake profiles on Facebook,posed as a lawyer telling me to give up before anything was even finalized,and she still tries to harrass me. She even went to Emilie’s grave and stole everything we had put there and put stuff she wanted there in place of everything we put there. They didn’t even give us a chance to parent our son we just had March 25th,2012 before handing him to her.

    Most of these cases, if centered in same geographical locations (especially small towns) strongly suggest an illegal child seizure and adoption ring. People are desparate to adopt small babies/children and unscrupulous persons in authority capitolize on that fact by abusing their authority as CPS case workers. Any and all of you involved, band together and call the State Police, call the local newspapers, call anyone that will listen and request an immediate investigation.

    Child protective services does not take children away from a parent unless there is good cause, I have noticed from reading most of these comments that I didn’t seen any of you admit to abusing your child or having a drug problem or neglecting your child,and I’m pretty sure at least some of you have had one or more of these problems, but I know kids are not just yanked out of a home by the authorities unless the child is in fact in some sort of danger, come on folks lets be honest here.

      I beg to differ, i know 3 small families in my home town who have had their children taken for no reason. I have called in abuse of a family (mandatory reporter) and their fatherinlaw was a counselman in the town…nothing happened to them…hmm i wonder why

      Yes, this is true, more or less. They will take a child if they BELIEVE there is good cause. They like to err on the side of caution, which I can understand. The problem is that if their judgment is made in error, they will never admit their mistake. They can and do fabricate evidence in their favor. Their report, which may be riddled with inaccuracies and outright lies is taken as Gospel by the judge and you have no voice in their courtroom. In order to fight them, you need money. If you have no money, you are at their mercy.

      This happens all the time. It is happening to a friend of mine and all evidence has been found that the child has lied about the accusations and the system still will not return the children. If you think for one second that this department in this country is not corrupt then you mam are blind, or you work for the very department that is taking children hostage from there families. This is not to say that there are not children out there that do get abused and need a department of the state to step in and investigate the accusations, but in my friends case there was no proper investigation, there was no interviews of family or friends. The only interview done was of the children, no evidence of abuse only here say by the accused step daughter that wanted to live with her grand parents that spoiled her rotten. It just so happens that the grand parents are the parents of the accusers father that is in prison for the molestation of a 4 year old girl.

      You are sadly mistaken. Most Americans can not fathom the government charging into homes and ripping our children from our arms. Well they not only are doing it but on a scale that is remarkable. I am here to tell you and anyone who listens that the system is corrupt, flawed, and yet holds great power against anyone who challenges it. I know for a fact that caseworkers lie to judges, on forms, and all parties work hand in hand to take and keep children many without any factual evidence. The DHS makes money from taking children, the court makes money from backing DHS, if the manage to use this system to legally kidnap your child they are entitled to more funds for adoption and this is not based on fiction but on knowledge. They can take your child based on lies, rumors, gossip, and you are denied all of your rights as Americans, as mothers and fathers . Fayette County Ga. had a very lucrative hand in many illegal and unfounded DFCS cases under Juvenile Court Judge Terrance Schell. I mean blatant neglect of following any legal residences as he stole the lives of my children and many others. Once DFCS makes a mistake proof or not they will destroy and damage your children’s lives forever rather than confess. Our Children are very profitable to this system , bonuses and rising up the ladder depends on each caseworkers ability to alter facts, lie, justify their so called legally kidnapping of my and your children. I would have been like you until it happened to me, and I will tell you that I have never committed a crime against my children in word nor in deed, I have 2 degrees, I have never used any substance like drugs nor alcohol. I was hunted by lies from my X husband. Whom did abuse me and my children, but without speaking to me they beat in my door took my children and My daughter turns 12 this January again without her mother. I was divorced and starting over there. So be careful the powers of the government by DFCS could get a call about you from anyone looking to hurt you and you will be inside the nightmare that many of us wonderful and loving parents, mothers are

      I have never done drugs and I rarely drink. And in 2001, my children was pulled from my home because my oldest child missed a lot of school because of head lice. I thoroughly cleaned my home and tried to put her back into school three times a week, each time being cleared by the school nurse but only to be called a couple hours later because she had it again. Both of my children were said by CPS,they was healthy and happy when they took them from me. I had jumped through every hoop. I proved my employment along with my weekly earnings. From their psychological evals it was determined that my children was extremely safe with me and I had more than enough intelligence to take care of them. But yet child services refused to try to reunite me with my kids. During the three years I fought to get my children back, cps ignored judges orders and lied about me in court. I nearly went bankrupt fighting to no prevail.

      I am a grandmother who was trying to help my grand kids when my daughter fell to drugs. My grandson was placed with me by DHS and taken from me by DHS based on lies told by DHS stating that I said “Take him take him now, get this kid out of here.” Without truth or notice my grandson was taken and placed with a lady who drugged him heavily as he is ADHD. I was told later they did not like my interaction with him even though no one had seen me interacting with him and one was via telephone with a DHS person. They went as far as to say they thought he was in danger. How hurtful. DHS will take a child for no reason and make your life miserable and toy with you. They have too much power and it becomes too personal and they forget what is best for the child and the family they are hurting even more because they take a disliking to you or you don’t play the game of not talking about DHS negatively. They cannot be trusted and should be investigated.

    I had a similar situation, actually. I was accused of my 8 month old daughter’s ‘failure to thrive’ by a doctor who had a personal issue with me because I had a child ‘out of wedlock’ and she ‘didn’t think a mother should have piercings and tattoos’- a long story short, she’ll be 2 in late January and I’m just now getting her back because LUCKILY my case was closed and my aunt had been the one they left her with along with a temporary POA…
    Now my little one has night terrors and a bad case of anxiety if I’m not holding her almost 24/7.
    It’s a difficult thing, battling DHS… my story, while effed up as it is, is not as much so as theirs… and hearing their story simply breaks my heart and I hope they’ll be able to regain custody of their little ones.

    Document everything they say and suggest, then ask them to sign it,
    (after all, it their so called professional advise)

    I am going thru the same thing. Its been almost 2 years now and in the beginning we went 6 months without a court date when we were suppose to have one in 3 days. At first they tried hard to terminate out parental rights but we did every little thing we could.at times its still not enough they airways want more they tell you one thing and you do it and they add more stuff to out. We have started unsupervised visits and were only suppose to have a maximum of 3 months unsupervised visits then reunification.well its been 3 months and we’ve not even started unsupervised overnights.our car either lites all the time! Thank the Lord err can sue dhs after this for making us go 6 months without a court date! I just hope were in the position that we can I have 5 kids. The 5th one I got pregnant with right after they took our other 4 kids and they took her theweekend she was born and I went out of state to have her but BC I was from another state the cps there was suspicious and started looking till she found I had an open dhs case so thru took her to stop she was living in another state for several months then dhs moved herto Oklahoma where we were!

They were only in my life BC I trusted them when they said they were gonna help protect my kids from their dad. I wanted the backup. Little did I know that a urs and a half later right when they claim they are closing my case… they slap a no contact order between my kids and at the time boyfriend. I ended relationship and he left. 1 week later Dhs comes and says ‘hey saw me with him and r taking my kids. First off I didn’t have a no contact order with him my kids did. Second off I hadn’t seen him since he left… thirdly I had proof from daycare he wasn’t around when they claimed he was. Didn’t matter. The judge willback Dhs no matter what. So I went 6 months battling supervised and semi supervised visits being jacked around. We. made it to unsupervised first day and the Dhs worker calls and says my ex was at my apt and I was going all the way back to fully supervised. This was the second time
    and I was fed up. I tracked him all the way to Florida and made up a huge story. He came back to Iowa. I turned him in the min he was at my house. 2 Wis later

    I am currently trying to get “out of the system” with DHS. The staff in the hospital drugged me while recovering from a c-section. While medicated they sent psychologist and social workers to wait in my room until I got back from visiting my child in the NICU. They put a 72 Hour hold and filed a chips petition, they gave me paperwork accusing me of not demonstrating I could adequately take care of my child. I also was suppose to make an appointment for babies immunizations, a postpartum appointment, and an appointment for my baby a day after discharge without the baby being discharged. The witches. So the nurses, doctors lied and made false reports. The GAL, workers and especially visiting nurses and parenting workers came in my home speaking weird and trying to provoke me. They spoke lies and threatened that if I did not cooperate with their plan for my child the intrusion would be worst. They also linked this case to a probation officer. This happened at U of M children’s Hospital in Minneapolis. They do this in cycles and also receive funding from Jewish and Catholic agencies. They make sport out of your pain, driving you mad maybe to drugs and alcohol and accusing people of having mental illnesses. It is a network of demonic activity used to degrade and seperate families, rape and mess up kids.

    I am sorry to say that writing the president, senators, judges, governors and anyone else you can think of is not going to help. I have done that for my sister and yes the governor did send another cps agency to look in to it but agreed with hem. They agreed because of the lies. My sister and her husband along with their three children lived with her mother, we have the same father. Anyway, the home was very dirty, they had lots of dogs and cats, too. Cps took her children. My sister and her husband moved out, 8 months they have been in their own home. Never once failed a drug screen. Completed all recommendations and now on February 7, 2013 she will loose all her rights. They are saying now that since she and her mom fought over the years with police involvement she s unfit to raise her children. They told her her oldest sone, who is 4, is a manic depressive, he will be a child meloster or a serial killer he needs help now and they can give it to him. He just turned 5 but still they could not consider the fact that he was taken from his parents and that yes it would depress anyone. I still pray that hopefully the judge will not take their rights away over something so dumb. You will continue to hear “it’s in the best interest of the child” no one but their parents are the best interest of the child. If she would have beat the crap out of them, which she never did, she would have a better chance of having them returned. Never once did she have to take them to the dr for anything other than check up or a cold. Since in cps foster homes they have been to hospital several times for getting hurt. There is no help, I have lost so much sleep looking for help just to get ignored. She is a redneck/hillbilly and I guess it’s against the law to be poor and be out spoken, or you are not allowed to have children if you are these things. I have even went as far as changing county cps as she lives in a different county. The new county won’t take it because she had a skull and bones rebel flag hanging on her porch outside. The pickens county won’t transfer because they have already got her 5 year old son adopted. I am left all out of options I have done all that I could and I am still trying to find more things short of picketing the juvenile courthouse. They won’t give me the children because of a previous cps case on me that told me I was slightly abused, I really didn’t know anyone could be slightly abused. To me it’s either you are or your not all because I argued with my husband and he grabbed my arm and said please don’t go and it scared my kids, but yet if I owned a psyc center and someone was going to give me money just for finding someone had a problem you can bet your bottom I am going to make sure everyone they send me is going to have a problem. I didn’t realize this till the couselor they sent o my home told me. Well, she footed around it. She asked why are they being so rough on you and I said I have no idea I guess it’s who you get and she said you are right. (Because when she first came out there was two lady’s) she told me that he lady who came out with her the first time said she would keep us in couseling for two years. To the ones who says they don’t take your kids for nothing I have to say WRONG! When that investagator told me she was taking my kids whatever she said after that I treated like the gospel. Yes ma’am you are right he beats the crap out of me all the time if that’s what ou say let me take my kids and leave. She let me but she called the cops and I look out the window and 5 carloads was in my yard.none gets out unclips his gun and yells are there weapons in the home. I said yes but sir it’s not like that and he pushed me out of they way and runs in the door. 2 seconds later he comes out and says what’s going on here. I try to speak and she interrupts me and answers him and he yells and screams at her in front of my kids about how she is the ba person in all this and that she needs o leave us alone I try o speak up again and she interrupts wanting the officer to serve my husband papers, he says NO, YOU TAKE THAT MAN HIS PAPERS, he then grabs her by the arm and leads her into the house. I did not mean to get into all that but I get angry and I guess this is how I deal with it. I am so sorry to say no one can help. They can help but they will not.

The allegations made against me were proven false in my mother’s living room a few weeks after my duaghter was yanked from me. My caseworker has lied under oath at our hearings, she has made multiple mistakes in my paperwork and everything! I have asked numerous times for a new worker and I keep getting denied. It has been heart-wrenching dealing with this! I was a single mother, at that I was 19 doing it all by myself, her father is a drug addict that is in and out of jail and doesn’t care about any of this crap going on. I have a court appointed attorney that barely even speaks up for me in court. This case has been through hell and is trying to come back. They want my child to be adopted out, but yet I am doing what they want done. My mother’s lawyer even stated my caseworker is known for lying! I feel as if ANYBODY dealing with Child Services needs to speak up when they notice one thing wrong… My case has gone too far and all of the Children Services out there need to be gone through because of the “dirty games” they play with people’s lives!

My child was molested by his father but only told me and my husband and because he didn’t tell the investigator they dropped the case as unfounded then the judge ignored all our evidence and testimony and ordered my kids overnight visits to that man. I have called in several reports of bugs, including bed bugs, my kids being punched ( he even told the doctor) ,my kids not being fed,coming back with bad diaper rash, all to no avail the dhs always finds it unfounded without proper investigation.

    Same thing is happening with me…but a little different. After my violent ex-wfie assaulted me, I was thrown in jail. When my ex-wife told everyone I was innocent, I was threatened with 7 years in prison if I did not take the plea bargain, and promised I could get my son back if I did. I took the plea, did all the required “services” that are actually roadblocks. They sent me to a psychologist to make up personaility disorders (that have nothing to do with parenting), and then a counselor for treatment. When they found out the counselor as going to issue a report that the previous evaluator was wrong, and that I could safely parent a child, they cut his funding off and ordered me to a new evaluation with one of the DHS agents’ friends to confirm diagnoses, and claim that I was not treated. They continue to say that I refuse to address personality disorders and my “serious problem with violence” when there is no History and I can even prove that my ex-wife had initially lied because the State told her to.

    The process they use in Oregon needs to stop, too many children and parents are having their lives destroyed for nothing….meanwhile, it seems as if nothing is being done to help the children who are actually at risk. Fathers can be better parents than mothers sometimes, too. There needs to be fairness and there needs to be oversight…but, not even a federal lawsuit can abate these issues unless Congress passes a new law to allow people to sue the states to get their children back in Federal Court.

    It seems they just want people to resort to vigilante justice, so they can use a desperate act as the means to continue these bogus cases as a ‘justified concern” from the onset….
    THIS IS CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT AND TORTURE OF CHILDREN THROUGH TRAFFICKING AND EMOTIONAL ABUSE!!!!

    I have a a daughter she is the mother of 2 kids a 5yr. old boy and a 2yr. old girl. DHS took her kids they say it is because of a dirty house. Our house is clean and they have passed our house. My grandson has issues with learning skills they are delayed and slow. They still have not returned them to her. They say it is because of the record of DHS in the past that is from us her parents. They are using our past record against her. That is wrong we have hired an attorney to help her out. They should not use our past problems with DHS on her. We have told our attorney to have them use only this as my daughters first time. But DHS is not listening to a word we say. They say it is neglect of both children. Because of they are both developmentally delayed. I have been told they can’t use that against her. What is really worse is when they took my granddaughter given that she is 2 she still nursed on her mother.They made the decision to make the decision to make my daughter quit the breast feeding all together they did not even give her a chance to wing her off slowly. They had no right to make that kind of decision on both partys. That was something special they had to do together. My daughter is now getting depressed and lonely. They say she has no reason to be that way. If they understood what her kids mean to her they would understand. They think she can handle with only seeing her kids for 2 hours a month and with someone with her there all of the time. They are saying she is unfit to take care of her kids all because of just a simple thing. She lives with her parents at home because she can’t handle being without her kids. All she does is sleep all of the time. They haven’t even told her what she has to do to get them back. She is waiting to find out what it is. She has tried to sign up for parenting classes but they will not approve the online classes even though they say they are approved by DHS and and by court. She has no job because where we live there is no jobs that will hire her. She is a risk because she is depressed about her kids all of the time. I have told her she can live at home as long as it takes for her to get everything together. What else can you do for a daughter who doesn’t understand why she can’t get her kids back. I don’t even see why on that part if DHS doesn’t tell her what she need to do what can you do. We have 2 attorneys on this case it is breaking us with our finances at home. But my grandkids are important to us so we are doing what we can to help her.

    Mother I see you with your daughter and your great you have a great support system. I am grateful that Texas didn’t take my child because I would have been crushed to death. Even after dealing with those evil people for two pregnancies and having to fight for my oldest it was stressful and I knew they were going to take my kids. I knew if I couldn’t save all of them at least I could save one. As a parent it was the hardest decision I have had to ever make in my life. I’m not a bad person I love my children all my kids I have fought tooth and nail for my kids but social services just kept finding bullshit that didn’t mean shit! They tried using my step mothers illness against me I honestly don’t understand them they are cruel evil people and one day they will get what they deserve…

    DHS continues to falsify legal documents and add or manipulate words to make it appear any way they want it to.

They have been given a lot of power and that power is misused on a regular basis at the expense of the family. My grandson and granddaughter have suffered at the hands of DHS and there false documenting. i will not stop fighting these horrible people who are bias towards you if you do not do what they want you to. I am appealing the courts now due to the falsification by the DHS certifier and case worker in my case who are backed by their supervisors, they stick together no matter what so we need to stick together. I was never treated so badly for trying to help my family until DHS I was treated like a criminal because I did not jump for them so I was negative. They went as far to say that they were concerned with the way I interacted with my grandson one was via telephone and my grandson was no where around. So please be careful what you say even if joking, say very little and never tell all because they will use that against you too as they smile with you at first. DHS should be brought up on charges for all the harm done to families but they seem to be protected by the very organizations that are suppose to help you. So what do we the people do?

While in foster care, the mom was told that she would get her kid back as long as she completed the program. At the hospital, before they pulled the plug, the foster parents stated that they were told that they would be able to adopt the child. The mom always thought that DHS was making it impossible for her to complete the program and her suspicions were confirmed by the foster parents. After the child’s death, DHS publicly complimented and thanked the foster parents for their great work. During the process, DHS was dragged in front of the local judge who despised them and enjoyed humiliating the DHS worker who represented this organization of kidnappers.
