So you stalk hospitals looking for babies to feed to DCF$. You make me want to vomit. Parents cannot even be in a hospital with their children and expect safety.

I have NEVER called DCFS, not even in my family, when a call was very well warranted. I have gone to the ends of the earth to help my own family. I do not stalk hospitals looking for mistreated children, so don't get it twisted. Thank you very much.

I was abused from age 4-17 by my stepmom well my dad was in the military. I was bloody and bruised when I went to school. Numerous cases were made all were ignored by dcfs. Despist the fact that they saw the blood and brusing!!! Now I am 20 engaged and have my son. my drug attack biological mom came into my life last year. She clearly stated that shed kidnap my son if I would not move in with her!! She then became angerd by me not allowing her to take him to wisconsion alone I barely now her let alone would I ever allow my son to be put in harms way! Then she made a false report even admitted in numerous emails it was!! So my question is why when I child is truly neglected do they ignore it? And why do they not look into all the facts first? Why do you waste time and money and people that give there child what they never had safety, love, care, a clean home, food, ect. Why don't you look at the inocent children that are truly hurt or neglected. I will never understand why no one stped in when I was abused. But I want to thank the stupidity od dcfs for allowing me to live threw hell. I wouldn't be the mom I am today!!!

Where did this happen, in Tinley Park? Does anybody know more about this story? It sounds horrible; makes you scared as a parent that a medical person can just call DCFS and they can take your kid away.
I had once a bad run in with DCFS. That was when my now 20 year old son was a toddler and was in the hospital. We took him to a hospital in Indiana on an emergency basis but wanted to have him transported to our doctor as soon as possible. The hospital refused even though our doctor talked with them. My son had been admitted for severe diarrhea and was now stable but the hospital kept being stuborn. So I took him out without the hospital's blessing and brought him to our doctor. The hospital called DCFS on us. They came to the house and looked at all the children. That's all they did, I guess we were lucky.
I am currently opening my jlin.lin@yahoo.com for all stories accross the USA involving nightmares with DCFS which is a program designed to destroy families contrary to their motto, "for the children!" It is my hope to gather these stories to use to "STOP" DCFS from manipulating their case files. Judges are blind to this manipulation, it is time to take the blindfold off! I know several families that have been deestroyed simply because they did not like the parents involved. The case which has inspired me to take this stand is about a little girl taken from her family and placed with her biological father simply because the mother was a victim of domestic violence. The state walked in and took the mother's 3 of 6 children in the home placing them in foster care and not allowing any family members to have them. DCFS case workers, Catholic Social and Children's Home manipulated the case in the sight of God and the courts tainted with lies and unfounded hearsay. The father of this little girl was a sex for cash relationship with the mother who liked to dress as a woman and be sodomized which he openly stated in court. If you have a good job, own a home and keep your bills paid the courts will give you children no matter what your sexual appetite is. This man has a sexual appetite for young girls, he paid the young mother of this girl for illegal sexual acts and yet the courts took her from the mother and handed her over to a perfect stranger! The state adopted the other 2 children out knowing a family was fighting to kmeeep them by loosing paper work and ignoring phone calls. DCFS workers seeing the wrong had their jobs put on threat alert while turning a cheek to the truth. My friends, this is not a complete story but it has been a very exspensive story to the family trying to get their grand daughter out of the clutches of a man the court system placed her in. These horror stories are nothing but stories, unless, we the people take a stand as onend "DEMAND" change! A change is coming, please send your stories to jlin.lin@yahoo.com and be apart of this change. PS. anyone who is able to shut the door to DCFS and never see them again, is very lucky.

Where is the proof af anything except the calls from a nasty neighbor or welfare worker?
Where is the proof of three calls to 911 or any abuse or neglect or brain damage as psychiatrists and welfare Canada investigators expession.

I worked as a police officer for 8 years in the suburbs of Chicago and I can't count how many times I had a call or a case that among other things, involved child neglect or potentially abuse and I was disappointed by the response from DCFS. Now, I'm bearing in mind here that I have had just as many calls or cases that were frivolous and merely fiction made up by supposedly abused children that were siimply angry at their parents and wanted to punish them. The problem I had was that whenever I contacted DCFS about a child neglect or abuse issue, I always sent them a copy of my report as soon as I got off the phone with them, a report which detailed the incident and explained why I believed there to be a case of neglect or abuse. Every single time I made such a report to DCFS, I always ended up getting a letter back from them saying they found no evidence of neglect or abuse. A case that comes to mind is one I handled a couple years ago where two very small children (ages 2 and 4 I think) were found just wandering the streets at night. I was called out there and I picked them up, but unfortunately they were unable to tell me who their parents were. Fortunately, one of my fellow officers recognized the children and knew who their parents were. The bad part is the parents were known problems in the community and had been arrested on numerous occasions. After several hours of attempting to locate the parents, and contacting DCFS at the same time, the parents finally showed up at our police department. According to them, the mother went to the store for some milk and left the boyfriend at home with the children. Well, the boyfriend fell asleep in his chair (I don't recall if he passed out from drugs or alcohol or if it was merely sleep)and somehow these small children were able to open their patio door and walk out. Now, bear in mind, we didn't hear from the mother for at least 3 or 4 hours before she showed up at the station and she claimed she was only gone from home for maybe 10 minutes. The question I posed to the DCFS case worker that I was in contact with about this was: Why weren't the police contacted the second she got home and realized she couldn't find her children? I'm sorry but maybe after a token phone call or two to a friend or neighbor to see if my children had wandered over there, I'd be on the phone with the police going out of my mind with worry. The end result of this case, the children were released back to their family and DCFS sent me a letter with the decision that there was no evidence of neglect or abuse. I'm no longer a cop and I can safely say that I deffinately don't miss having to deal with child abuse cases that go nowhere with an agency that is so broken because of overwork and lack of caring. And yes, for those of you who do support DCFS and their work, I do indeed understand that their agents are extremely overworked and it is incredibly difficult for them to effectively do their jobs. My biggest problem is if you have a police officer calling DCFS and telling them there is a problem, that pretty much goes above and beyond the typical "I want revenge against my ex" call.

DCFS needs accountability

Research shows that 58,000 American children's lives a year are harmed by federally funded agencies that are supposed to help them. As a society, we have to demand transparency and accountability. We can't continue to allow the federally funded child abductions that remove children from safe loving stable homes in good school districts and places them in unsafe, highly questionable, unstable homes in bad school districts. They violate policies, break laws that are supposed to protect them as well as the families, breaking the laws cause them to fail to properly assess risks, then they fail by assessing risks where there are none. They violate people's rights and they should be held civilly and criminally responsible.

It is my belief that no matter what the circumstances are..Each and Everychild should be appointed a GUARDIAN AD LITEM...this is to protect the childs rights, emotional well being, Health, Bond, Maternal Attachment, Trust, Connection, This is a FOUNDATION...when this is broken you have to start over with CONCRETE blocks, bricks, and pour the foundation again and build from scratch as if building a home....THAT IS NOT EASY,,,you take a childs spirit and a mothers love...IT HURTS..Gracie and i were Very Close and that is where they messed up. ASK THE CHILD WHO THEY LOVE AND WANT TO BE WITH IF THEIR OLD ENOUGH TO TALK...kids are smarter than the average bear and believe me if they DONT want to be with someobody they will TELL YOU!! FOR AN IN LAW TO iGNORE the childs pain and can clearly see and is competent enough to care for a child in foster care or child/relative placement..THEN THE CARETAKER should GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE SURE THE CHILD MAINTAINS A CONNECTION AND RELATIONSHIP...PARENTAL ALIENATION SHOULD BE A CRIME..ITS ABUSE IN THE MOST EXTREME FORM AGGRAVATED ABUSE OF A CHILD...its UN ACCEPTABLE...in my eyes BRING MY BRIMOO GRACIE NOW IM NOT RUDE IM COMING TO YOU .....WHERE ARE**** YOU**** UKingdom i dont have a passport..
