Re: So lost about this CPS system

Keewa, why did they take your kids? And where are you in the whole process, are you working on a case plan?

Re: Can they really take your baby??!!

Too vague. They would look into why the first kids were taken, and what the risk is with the new born. Maybe, if you're really lucky, this would happen. From what I've seen, the hospital will put an administrative hold on the newborn, just long enough for a CPS investigator to round up enough "...

Re: Paranoid mom

My child's therapist said it was abusive to talk to the kids about CPS Can you switch therapists? Abuse means raping, beating, starving, or burning your child. Any therapist who puts talking to you kids about a genuine threat--which is what CPS is--in the same category as real abuse has a screw loo...

Re: Which are the best states or provinces...

There really isn't a 100% safe haven. That's because these laws, and the funding to implement them, originate at the federal level. Some states are worse than others: Nebraska, Oregon, and (I believe) Texas all have poor records, but that's not an exhaustive list. I also suggest avoiding Washington....

Re: they took my baby from the hospital and cps lied!

RainDE, I'm sorry about what CPS is doing to you and your baby. It's cruel. And I can verify that Washington CPS tells lies. They portrayed my dyslexic DIL as a total moron, claiming she didn't even know how to spell her own name--which they knew to be untrue.

Please don't let them wear you down.

I would highly recommend getting an attorney if you can afford one. There are legal ...

Re: Can they really take your baby??!!

Yes, if they involuntarily terminated your rights and adopted your kids out, then they will take your next baby. You can try to have the baby in a different county or state, with a different doctor, and hope they don't learn of your previous history. But if you're on public assistance/Medicaid, you'...

Re: dissmissed

Okay, if dad isn't on the birth certificate, your daughter needs to call the police and insist that this woman is keeping her child illegally. This is ridiculous. Your daughter needs to insist that this is a kidnapping and/or custodial interference. Don't take no for an answer.
