Caldwell County DSS is a freackin joke. My social worker lied to a judge to get them to sign the custody papers, then came and picked my kids up in the middle of the night 2 am in the morning to be exact. Woke my kids up while they were peacefully asleep and told them they were taking them to foster home. I complied with all their requests except finding a job which isnt heavily available, but was trying as hard as i could. went to rehab got clean stayed clean passed all my drug tests and thought i was on good terms with my social worker and she saw my effort, but boy was she a crooked ass lying no good fucking bitch. anyone that could be so cold and heartless and can consciencely take your children with no remorse on their face are seeing their removing the children isnt helping them it's only fucking them up in the head but to them it's just a job. To me, this is my life. So Dss can go to hell and when i get my kids back from this unneccessary bullshit i hope DSS burns to the ground. Especially the heartless bastards that work there.

A few years ago my best friend became a child protective services investigator in a rural part of Florida similar to Caldwell County. It really moved me that he was working his ass off with a case-load of over 200 cases, many going back two or three years.
Eventually, when I needed a change of occupation I considered becoming an investigator like him or a caseworker. He talked me out of it! Even though he knew that every DSS agency needs more dedicated people ... he did not want me going through the "hell" he was seeing every day.
Imagine this: you get called or paged at 11:30pm by your agency because police are at a trailer (40 minutes from civilization) where both parents are being arrested because they're drunk out of their minds, beating each other. Kids are crying, the parents have assaulted the police officers and no other family members are able to take the kids. You have to calm the kids down, call a temporary shelter, drive them there, explain what's going on, and then you finally get home at 6am to sleep for two hours before returning to the office to complete paperwork.
Now you have to return the kids a few days later and do an inspection. At the trailer your find alcohol bottles everywhere, trashed piled up, rusty tools laying around, exposed electrical sockets that were never fixed, and just all-around country-lazy nastiness. Meanwhile the kids are the victims.
DSS work is not glamorous, not fun, not money-making and takes a special kind of person. And just like firefighters, garbagemen, police officers and grocery baggers ... THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS and can make mistakes.
As for all this single sentence bad grammar complaining about taking "my granbabies", parents being handcuffed for "no reason", DSS selling babies, pre-deciding who is getting their children taken ... that's all just bull. Why would underpaid, overworked, case-loaded DSS workers want to mess with you? As if they have some sort of "scam" going on ... or personal vendetta. These are the same arguments a trouble-making kid makes when a teacher punishes him: "The Teacher just has it out for me!"
Oh, and if you saw the horrid living conditions, redneck lifestyles, and abusive families that DSS workers saw ... you'd want to go to Steel Horses and have a few drinks too.
You were really in the Christmas Spirit when you wrote this weren't you? Mery Xmas to you....X'it your kids on Christmas. True meaning of CPS workers.....

One result of the death of the Baker child is that few DSS workers will take a chance leaving a child in a questionable home. One thread on here is that DSS did not do enought to safeguard Zahara. This thread is that DSS takes all children.
We cannot have it both ways here. I promise you with the media scrutiny more kids will be removed, like it or not.
Any parents engaged in domestic violence or substance abuse and a DSS worker or law enforcement officer sees some evidence, your child will be removed.
My feeling is that if the parent is so sloshed they cannot look after the kid, they are unfit and will need to earn the child back.

I am very upset that in this society we all find reasons to blame,,,I have adopted a child from cald. co and that is the craziest thing I have ever heard that Robert Brady would conspire to sell children or aide a defunked social worker in doing so. Believe me it took 5 years to get the whole process done....in the meantime all dss ask of her and him was to comply, show up for visits, and make and effort to the court to show they really could and wanted to take care of this baby.
Took another 2 years to terminate parental rights. So as far as stealing children, I don't think so....there are laws against that. At times I do beleive that because of the laws the respondent parents are giving way to many chances... especially after 2 or 3 years.\
The thing no one is mentioning is the best interest of the child, only that they as the parents/grandparents were blameless and got the shaft. hmmmmm....sound like they should decide if they had actually done enough instead of trying to tell dss and the courts that "they can't tell me what to do with my child" because they can. Anyway I will say in every field of the law and government there are those crooked few that just don't do their jobs well, but you can't shed all the blame on them...they do too much to try and not do anything that I find it way to hard to belive that they take a kid in just because.

The reason nothing was done about Zahra was because she was handicapped. It's hard to find homes for handicapped and that would mean they would be losing money not making it. But now since they are under the microscope they are harrassing people with handicapped children. I know three people who havehandicapped children that were not botheed until after Zahra and now they get multiple visits and the drs are taking the parents sides. I also know of a school teacher who has adopted children through dss but was able to get the babies from the hospital at birth and knew months before birth she was getting them. Even though the parents fought it she was able to get parents rights stricken and courts to say no family member was fit within 6 months of birth. and all this happened within a few months of her dciding I want a baby yet there are others that have been waiting for years. $$$$$$$$. Not to mention these kids are healthy white babies and no drugs were involved with the parents.
