God, these are horror stories. I'm so sorry for all of you.
There are also those lazy workers. My son's bio dad was abusive but I couldn't convince anyone since I left instead of staying and filing multiple reports. I was forced to split costudy until his current wife had him thrown in jail for abuse. They finally listened, after my son was exposed to their violence for 2 years and I spent close to $10,000 in attorney fees. Its the courts as much as the DHS workers.
Yea they all go hand in hand trust me when I tell you this. There is a lot of money to be made off of these children and they don't want anybody to get in their way. Some of the judges sit on the panel of these adoption boards also. If you have good evidence save it for court as your ace in the hole don't let them know what you have until you get to court it will better your odds of a fair trial.

There have been good workers. The problem is that they burn out. There are also workers there who, as cited above, do all they can to destroy homes. We went through that when my granddaughter was a toddler. She was out of the home for 4 years because her stepfather's mother decided she could raise her better. She would not have liked it if I had reported what I had seen in her house which was abuse, but I did not get the chance. Luckily, we were able to get a private attorney for my daughter and she was finally able to get her daughter back. They had the adoption papers ready and were trying to find a way to terminate her rights while she had the public defender. The private attorney nipped it in the bud and she is with her mother where she belongs. I heard a lot of people who said that the worker who took her worked very hard to break up families instead of trying to keep them together. They said if she went out on an investigation, you could count on her taking the children out of the home whether it was groundless or not.
Yea they have some that do that and if I had her name I could also see if she like the one I dealt with may also have a record. The bad ones make it really hard for people to trust the good ones. One of the ones that I was dealing with is known as the snake lady by the another agency that she deals with. Of course I can't give you the name of the agency on here. I don't want them to have to deal with any retaliation from this woman who as I have found out also has a record.

What happens if you can prove DHS violated it's own policies! And as a result of that violation a child was almost killed!

Nothing happens except the state and DHS scurry around and bust their asses to cover their own asses. You could try submitting it to the media secretly of course you don't want to go to jail for exposing them.

The story says they(I'm assuming dhs and the sheriff's dept)questioned the family and then left. Then they took the kids the next day. My personal opinion is that "they" didn't believe what they heard and they acted on it. There are just so many variables to this. They could have talked to neighbors who gave opinions rather than facts. We've all had them at one time or another right? At any rate, it doesn't give any of them the right to make such a terrible mistake. This family has a lot to deal with now and just because DHS has dropped charges doesn't mean crap. They still have to deal with the fallout and the opinions of narrow minded jackasses in their community. Some places can make or break a person or an entire family. Who knows? Maybe one of their relatives was a child abuser. So you know in some eyes that makes everyone who is related the same. People need to act on fact and not opinion because opinions are like....well you get the picture.

im going through kind of the same thing right now. my ex has the kids and i havent seen them for 3 weeks. she tried to kill them and dhs turned there head. then she made reports of marks on there knees and shins dhs gave them to her. but when i made calls to dhs,child protective services,family and children services and anyother places i could think of to help protect my children from stuff that several people including the kids had told me that was going on at my ex-wifes house. i got ignored. and now i havent seen my kids and the case worker has not returned my calls. i feel left in the dark. the one thing thats kept me going day by day is the faith in the good lord. i hear and feel your pain man. i hope and pray for you and your family. walk with your head high and your feet firm. and dont lose faith no matter what they say.

This literally just happened to me!! I have a 9 month old and 4 year old that we're put into a "safety plan" it's a joke and I just past my drug evaluation w flying colors today!! They are fucking idiots trying to make a name for themselves, I've already talked to a lawyer and they don't have shit. My son died while being born prematurely due to hemmoraging in my stomach that's rare but does happen in pregnant women. I was in labor for over a month and after my son passed I took medication prescribed by my physician and less than a month later these idiots are knocking on my door and taking my kids!? Keep in mind, my house was clean, Kids fed, and clean! Not one scratch on them!! They messed w the wrong momma!!
