Re: When they took your kids.....

My kids were taken away because CPS came to my house on investigation that my daughter was eating out of the trash at school. They at that time took all three of my children because if they were to take one they were to take all because siblings are suppose to be together. CPS knew I was trying to g...

Re: Almost out of the woods

I just had to sign some papers and then my caseworker sent a letter to the court for approval and that was it. A few days later I got a copy of the signed order of case closure. I do want to say that as Marina mentioned something could pop up at the very end. I had the foster parents send a horrific...

Re: My autistic son & CPS

My daughter was diagnosed also with Asperger's so as with Linda I too know what you are going through. I tried various methods to keep my daughter in her room at night and nothing worked. We went from 2 baby gates stacked upon each other, motion detector and an alarm that went off when opening the d...

Re: Don't Be Angry With Foster Parents

My kids foster parents tried to sabotage any reunification. If I remember correctly they are there to do the complete opposite and encourage reunification. My kids were brainwashed and used for money. The "babysitters" got almost $3000 a month for the care of my children and basically I st...

Re: Assaulted father, CPS threatens Neglect!

London, I have a soon to be teenager (13 tomorrow) who everyday threatens me to call child abuse because I make him do chores or because I won't let him go outside. Some say go ahead and let him call but when you go through the system you don't want them ever back in your life. My son also reminds m...

Re: My story, need advice plz help

Somewhere on this website is a link that will take you to visitation forms which you take with you and document what occurs during your visits. You can also try and google for such forms. Document, document, document. I've learned that from the people here and it helped me a great deal.

Re: My story, need advice plz help

I agree with the advice given. You need to decide who is more important at this point. If you stay with your fiancee then you can pretty much bank on not having custody of your child anytime soon. Is your fiancee being charged criminally? Also does he get visitation? Leaving your fiancee is only tem...

Re: CPS took my kids as result of sibling death

This situation sounds so familiar. I had a girlfriend who at the time had 2 children and wasn't with any of the fathers. She moved her boyfriend in and assumed everything was fine until she came home and found her 2 year old falling over. She sought medical treatment right away but the little boy wo...

Re: help with meeting today at 12:00

The only advice I would give is to work with your attorney on getting more visitation. I had team meetings every month and the case worker would suggest a little increa...

Re: This just sucks

Take Linda's advice and make sure to go with a full trial when given the chance. I think we all can admit we didn't go to trial not because we are guilty of anything that CPS alleges but because you are bullied about not seeing your kids or pressured into believing that not going to trial is better....

Re: Tortured 4 year old

WOW!

Mom needs to suffer same charges as boyfriend. I'm sorry if I have to shield my child from getting beat then either I'm out or he's out and police called. It's obvious love was more important than her child in my opinion.

Shame on CPS for letting a REAL case fall through.

If I could I would become a Casa worker, not because I would go in there with a big head and demand all the children to go back to their parents but to be fair.

This is a tough one because I had two Casa workers in my case and one worked with me and one worked for the babysitter (aka foster parent).

I don't want to discourage you but things just never seem that easy when dealing with CPS. I had a service plan as well and mine just consisted of my daughter getting therapy. That was it!

Sounds like an all to familiar scenario. They wait and wait and wait. They don't care, they have no feelings involved. They don't realize that they are taking precious time away from us.
