On our EIGHTH visit by CPS!!

After losing our son for over 8 months and having several visits since then, we are now on #8. The funny (no, not really) part is that we currently have our 2nd investigation open while the 8th visit takes place. The charges?? My 6 year old had bruises on his knees. Yup. That's it! Our current case ...

The outcome

They closed the case in 2 days, yet never bothered telling us for over a month! A "Wrap Around" person told us in passing. I can't believe that these people made me wait in anquish for over a month! I had my car packed and ready to "vacation" the whole time, too! We are currently trying to move out ...

My plan

Now that I know how they operate, I plan on getting a lawyer (not a court appoint.) and going from there. My trunk is packed with enough clothes and camping supplies just in case it goes bad. I can't assume that since we are innocent (as we were the last time this happend) nothing will happen. I was...

Current situation:

Last night, my now 8 year old, informed us that he was angry that he wasn't allowed to eat lunch at school anymore (his teacher told us several weeks ago that the lunch/recess ladies couldn't handle him anymore, so we began bringing him home for that time and returning him. The school is WELL AWARE ...

My worst fears have become true

We just learned today that there is ANOTHER case against my husband for abuse. My bags are packed. Should I just leave with the kids, now, or wait until they knock on the door?

EMERGENCY NOW!! CAN'T WAIT!! PLEASE HELP!!

My husband and I just found out that there is another investigation on him. We went through this a little over 2 years ago and lost our son (now 8 years old) for 8 months! Our son told his teacher that his dad punched him in the stomach and told us today that he met with his school counselor and "a ...

Great ideas!

Thanks for all of your tips! I'll try the water use and diet changes. We've cut out a lot of sugar, but not all. I don't think that is one of his issues. I will do some research on ADHD diets and try them for a while. I am also talking with my husband about home schooling. He's not too keen on the i...

Thank you for your suggestions!

I see how I'm damned either way. I did talk to my husband and we've decided to try yet another road of discipline. We took him off his meds a few weeks ago which may be aggrivating the problem, but we can't afford $300 a month anymore! Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone out there with a diffic...

Discipline questions

My son has severe behavioral problems. He's considered ADHD, but there's more to it that we can't put our finger on. He was removed from us when he was 5 for 8 months. They claimed abuse, but he was just a very accident prone, crazy acting kid. He still is! The problem is this: He's now 8 and we can...

I didn't mean to imply all fathers/men can't understand the bond. I'm just searching for a reason. My husband is a very analytical person. Everything has a beginning, middle and end. I feel like I'll always be trapped in the midde of this hellish agency that destroys families. I may never recover. I...

Kali and Trapped in Weakage

You both hit the nail on the head!!! It's so calming to know I'm not the only one that feels as you do. My child and I both "died" during that terrible time in our lives. We now have to learn who we are to each other, again. I can't believe that my husband can't feel what I feel. Maybe it's a man th...

I'm so sorry, Kali

My thoughts go out to you, as well. I can't even imaging how much pain you have gone through. Multiply mine by a thousand still wouldn't do it, I'm sure. I would go into family conseling (I am in it myself, now) but I want my son to forget it ever happend. He rarely brings up his foster family and t...

Thanks for sharing!

I haven't had any luck locating any groups in my area. I've considered starting one myself for both parents who've been falsely accused and those who may have made mistakes and are being overly punished for them. Thanks for reading my post and the best of luck to you in the future!

Ruined Relationship With 7 year old

My son was placed in foster care for 8 months during our poorly handled case full of false allegations. He's been home for over 2 years and I feel so distant to him! I love him, but I almost feel like he's damaged goods? Does anyone know what I mean? My husband just wants me to move on, but I have s...

I know exactly how you feel! You said it exactly right: You think about it every day; your husband doesn't understand why you can't just "move on" with life; if there's a knock at the door, you're gone! I will run with my kids if I ever hear a peep from the DHS, again. I've told my husband this. He ...

My case is closed

There is no open case against me. I'm still married to my children's father. I have told him that if DHS came calling that I wouldn't stick around to find out why; I'd just leave with the kids and he might never see us again. He didn't like it, but understands. I just wondered if there is a list of ...

Has anyone taken the kids and ran?????

I'm through with all of the DHS bull****, but I'm still in fear that they could come back. Since I thought I had nothing to fear the first time since I never did anything wrong, and my kid was stolen, I fear having a knock at my door or a business card left asking me to call. Rather than try and fig...

No one would even call me back or respond to my letters/e-mails/phone calls!

I think the media is afraid. If we all did it and hammered them with stories, they'd have no other choice but to look into things.

How Do I Get On With Life?!?!?!

My son was removed from our home for 8 months. He's been back now for a year and a half. I still have an enormous amount of hate and anger toward the people who did this to us. My biggest problem, though, is I feel distant with my son. He came back acting different, looking different (they cut his l...

There used to be a time when kids ran through the neighborhood and those who live around us watched after them. It was like an unwritten law.

Thanks for the info

Since I'm the "perp" it looks like I should have access. I will call them on Monday to see if they've even started the copying process. I was hoping to keep my lawyer out of it to save some money, but I'm very willing to make things difficult if they want to play their games, STILL.
