My opinion is if you take care of your kids you won't lose them. My best friend was in a foster home. They gave the foster mother so much money to provide for that child. So no, dcs doesn't get money when they take a child. Be a good parent and you'll have a good life with your kids...

Foster kids dont allways end up in good homes .I wont say all but some at DCS dont do their job .I was told by a deputy that DCS has to notify the foster home in advance of any visit to the foster home .I guess this gives the ones who are in it for the money time do what needs doing .Children taking cussings on a daily basis is just wrong .

A few years ago I offered DCS a seat under my shade tree to set and listen to the cussings but I had no takers .

the foster care system has become a money making avenue for the government .They have passed laws that state that they can receive your estate or life insurance and retirement if you do not receive your children back . this is not legal and the constitution states that the states may not hender parents for there is no greater bond but a parent and their children . then they are adopted out for revenue . They are only suppose to reunite children not distroy the family unit and deny visit . They are paid payments to adopt children out no reunite . to reunite does not allow them to recover any funding . that it . the children deserve better

if you know of a single women please help her . do not fall for it . never sign anything , even if they threaten you never sign anything to give up your children willing , never never never tell them anything about your family thats the thing they prey on the family . they will pit you against each other . never let them in your house willingly make them get a search warrant . you have rights as citizens us them or lose them . if asked to sign tell them you dont understand whats said or it meaning . never volunteer to take your child to their office ever ..... demand your constitutional rights .. never go to court and testify without an oath given to you .. so help me God ..... it matters . if they acuse you of abuse that is a crime a crime allows due process and the right to be heard by your acusers and jury trial in America.If they seek money that also states any thing over 20 dollars must be heard . dont believe all they say to you . They are being paid well for what they are doing . Demand your rights and the rights of your child . Your child has a right also to be hear . read "the constitutional right to be a parent on line " it has laws that pertain to custody by the supreme court . Dont let anyone tell you that they dont use them anymore .

recently I read where 232,000 had been given services each service provide is income , CASA is supposed to be a none bias agency which is supposed to be for the benefit of the child and family with no conflicts of interest of the court or their board of directors . Every day people so that fairness is allowed . How can you get you children if the attorneys and the mayor and police chief is all involved . All are to protect your interest while in office and be not involved with anything that may be harmfull in anyway to the citizens in their community . There are CASA run by attorneys . This is a conflict of interest all the way around see.reunification is to be demanded and you and your family must stand united . The countys in some areas suppliment salaries to CPS workers to "make sure are safe " is that the real reason or is it that the sity and countys are profitting from the estates and money received . The bible states that they will take your children for a debt . Most are single women alone and are not given a fair chance at all. Some have been involved in prison . They now have in Texas prisons for profit . Is it really abuse and negligent your parents land and property they are after . If you lose your children they come for money , if your parents have oil rights or land that effects your results . Who can you go to for justice . Make sure you ask them to swear an oath before God on what they are say about you too.

if you have not been involved and dont know the laws they made dont say this . Its not true . I have studied law for many years and they are not gooing by the constitution . They are not having people swear before God anymore and The governor has made the Losers bill which makes sure the lawyers get their money but not necessary your rights . It is against the constitution for an attorney to allow his client to be harmed but they do for money . The mental eval is often by those working with them and the constitution does not allow you to have to witness against your self I believe its the 5th amendment . dont have them in front of me right not . read the law know your rights . if an attorney does violate the attorney client priviledge they are respondsible for that . they are not to harm their own client . take time to read the bible and the constitution and see for yourself what going on . Which one protects you and your children ......

I think to many young people are having kids to young . People dont stay married anymore. Responsibility is great with childern . Just because YOU think your ready for sex doesnt mean your ready for childern . 20 minutes of bom bom time doesnt mean your ready for 18yrs of taking care of anothers life....just a thought.

Maybe some of these so called mothers should put their children before their drugs and partying. Women have these children and then seem to forget that it's their job to raise and nurture them. Then they are offended when their children don't see them as mother, or that someone else is raising their kids. It takes alot more than giving birth to be a mother, you have to earn that right. I know of quite a few women in Carter County that fall into this category.

They're selfish women (I won't call them mothers) when they put their own needs of needing men, parties, and drugs in front of raising their own children. Women like them should be sterile from birth and never able to have kids, especially when there are so many loving and decent couples wanting a kid and they are medically unable to. It's a sad situation all the way around.

I raised two of my own and one stepson . If these women were raised them selves in foster care or had no mother ot father to help them or direct them . Are we not still supposed to care . We end up with nothing but broken homes on going and on going .I know the truth and to divide the family is an old method to distroy lives and others profit . My dear hilter did this same thing . Most people dont know the laws, and even if they were given their rights . How would you know the person you hired was telling the truth . The system must be fair and just . fair and just .... Do you not realize children are sold every day and that in its self is wrong.Selling children is illegal regardless if its a person or an agency. Just how much money does it cost to get your children back ? I know one person that paid $25,000 .If they did not get all the money from medicare , social security and other benefits they would go by the federal laws and the constitution that states a parent can not be denied visits or the welbeing of their child or children . The right to be a parent ... I have suggested that the schools or volunteers offer to teach parenting to young men and women . Remeber its not just the girls fault . Lets try and make this world a world of families as it was inteaded not a land of broken homes . i love ya

three issues parent should consider
the losers bill . you get involved in a legal issue and the judge now in texas has a right to file a motion to dismiss within 45 days . no evidence gets precented and you are harmed by this
look up hb 274 it effects your rights to due process ...
cps the right to raise and make decisions for your children . immunity is only if they act in good faith and no threats coerstion and legally within there own laws to follow . the third is prisons for profit . our children are now pawns for profit and gain and legalized so called slavery . please help me protect your children and others as well silence hurts every one .. have a blessed day
they are not elected to make profit but to serve and protect our freedoms

If it isn't bad enough,I know some people,and this couple is not the only ones either.They are a married cpl,and some of their friends are single and living together...well,sometimes they have had the unmarried couple living in their home,and i have heard them with my own ears,say,when are you two gonna have a little one.Can you imagine asking a cpl that is not even married,when their going to have a lil one?? Come to find out,they did it with my 22 yr old son and his g/f.They ended up having a baby(boy)my grandson,And when my husband and i went to the hospitol to see the baby born,She was there,and mad because i was there!! Come to find out,they were wanting her baby boy,because they only had three girls,and she had her tubes tied.Well,needless to say,they finally got their baby boy,just not MY grandson.But it was another girl(unmarried) a drug addict to beat it all.That had already lost her other children due to drug abuse.Well,i heard the adoption was in the works.They have legal custody.This mother does nothing but scream at her children all the time.And the poor little things are always upset all the time.I guess i am getting ready to call DCS..See if they can check on them.People like that,make me so angry,i cant see straight.

the constitution teaches us that no greater relationship than a mother and father and their children and they are bone of the bone and flesh of the flesh . Do not always believe those whose who care not for your child . there is money made and children are heirs to property and inheiratence . read the laws get informed and see the money trail . this is our nation and our children deserve to be treated fairly and justly and have a voice as well to what they want . dividing birthrights is unconstitutional . It is a lie told for profit . may all the rights be made right for us all . without the constitution there is tyranny and anarchy . we must realize our children are the priority of all . mother to mother

I was reading an article on this subject.I can't remember what magazine I had read it from either.Anyway it said that when 10 men ask for custody of his kids,7 out of 10 will get custody of the kids.One thing I read that if the husband got custody of the kids,the wife would be charged with child support.It also said that most of the women refused to pay child support,and the man would be left to raise the children by themselves.I was shocked by the whole article,because I was always under the impression that the women always got it their 99% of the time,and the man had to pay out the ass

Times are changing, courts are looking more at the best interests of the children. In past years the courts used the principle of the tender years doctrine, meaning the children would be best placed with the mother during the tender years. Basically age 13 and under, this law has been in place since the late 19th century. Recently many courts have held that the tender years doctrine violates the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment to the US Constitution. These days statistically speaking fathers who fight for custody win over 75% of the time, this is a huge victory for fathers who have felt they had no chance of getting their children out of a unsafe environment. Fathers who are granted custody of their children rarely file for child support, and alot of the time when it is ordered against these mothers, they usually fail to pay. We are raising my husbands children from a previous relationship and in 10 years she has not contributed a dime to their support. No birthday presents no Christmas presents, zilch support emotionally, physically, or monetarily. In our situation it is actually what is best for the children.

Maybe because so many mothers are only interested in the men in their lives and their own agenda with no concern for their children. When a person has a child that child's needs should come before anything. It was a choice the mother made. So live up to the responsibility. If the man in your life doesn't also see the child as the number one priority then he needs to be out of your life. Also the child should not be there so the parent can get a check. It is your responsibility to support the children to whom you decide to give birth. Not the welfare system. Make your own decisions, it is the American way, but also take the responsibility for them.
You said everything on point! Couldn't sum up this subject any better.
