I posted on here yesterday and I guess someone doesn't want to truth getting out. My daughter is 3 years old and has come home on different occasions from her dad's house with bruises from bring hit and grabbed. My daughter tells me that she is afraid of her dad because he smacks her. The last incident was on tuesday when I picked her up she had bruises on both arms. I took her to children's hospital, they showed a lot of concern because of the bruising and what she told the doctors. They contacted cys once again. Cys interviewed me and then her father. Of course he denied it. Cys told me that because the doctors rated her pain level as mild and not severe that they will not do anything. My daughter should not have to go through this because cyf is incompetent! I'm looking for anyone who can help my daughter and I. She is afraid of her dad from his abuse. I have tried courts, police, hospitals, cys/cyf, and the child advocacy. I also tried to get cys to set up a forensic interview but they refused

I am so sorry to hear about this horrible abuse to your baby. I suggest taking pictures of everything before and after she goes to her dad. I would also go to family division courts child custody. Call Directors Action Line and file a report on CYS. Stop letting him see her all together or ask CYS to supervise the visits. Or have yourself or another person trusting person supervise them do not let her be alone with him.Keep record of every time she see's him and what she looks like and how she acts when she comes home as well as the pictures. When you go to family court take all reports you have made , pictures and hospital reports to court with you. Also you can get a Protection from abuse order to keep the father from coming near the child. Please keep me posted on what is going on I am very concerned for you and your child. I am on face book as Christina Seeman

I'm so sorry to hear about this it always makes me sick. I'm a father of a girl and a boy and I don't know how people can handle their kids that way. I'm assuming she lives with you. If so you think he would use his time with her to have a good time and want to visit. This happend with my best friend and his wife. His step daughter (who has cancer) went to her fathers to visit. He drops her off and leaves fast. She don't want to sit, here they look at her and she is bruised from her back to the back of her legs. I was there when the police showed up. Don't want to mention the department because I liked how they handled it. All of us where there for support. Well said police dept told us when he comes back to get her to handle it our way as long is its not critical then to call them. We busted his teeth clean out of his mouth, and fractured his eye socket. Then called said police, they cuffed us and took us in, turned us loose in an hour and never heard from them again

I stopped at the police dept who is doing the investigation and for what the one told me .it sounds like something is going to happen soon. All I can do is just keep my hopes up and pray and stay strong for my daughter cause I don't want her to c how much it really has affected me emotionally and physically.

Yes, but the judge at custody hearing didn't even care about the bruises he put on her

What I'm saying is if you don't let him visit he will probably try to take u to court and if so it will work out for u. It would be in front of the family court judge. I'm originally from greensburg so I don't know who Jerry is

Thanks. If I refuse though, I have a big risk of going to jail and I cannot chance that for my kids. I picked up hospital reports and I plan on taking him back to court. I have a strong case against him now. And if police proceed with pressing charges, it makes it even stronger. I built up as much evidence as I can, and still have a few more things to do before I go got full custody. I know from past experience with the courts that my case has to be completely solid before they would even consider. And as far as cyf goes...they did nothing to help me protect my daughter. But I'm never going to stop fighting to protect her. I do not need people who only step in when the poison is severe by my side in this fight for what is right

Your right. What sounds stupid to me is when cus just goes over there and ask him if he did anything to her. Wtf did they think he would say. Last thing they need is sht to get out of control and get smacked with a big lawsuit and media hitting their a$$ up. Oh and I talked to my grandparents they are from up aliquippa. Do he got a lot of money or come from a money background cuz he said a lot of people in beaver get away with sht if they got money. But anyway all bullshtn aside, u got them hospital reports and them pictures you should be good. I hope they don't wait till he knocks her d@MN block off. Quicker u get in court the better. Did u talk to a attorney?
