Blessed with my family, praise! step one done, oh and she didn't take kids, this was a custody dispute between father and i, that somehow she showed up on, at custody hearing... hmmmm well, praise that my family has always been around my children and i and during CYFDs actual visits!!!!!!

really CYFD get it together, my humbleness only made me stronger and angrier.... even my own mother stated, after dealing with CYFD i will never call them if I felt a child was in harms way... that is sad, but caseworkers who abuse this system for whatever jolly they get off on for bullyin others, you just make the rest look bad who actually want to help...

CYFD is charged with investigating the possible abuse of children. Generations of children gone before were abused and now those children are beating the daylight out of their children today. The failure of those "Adults" going back 40 years or more was that they decided that the responsibility for protecting children lies SOLELY in the hands of CYFD. Now you have a Governor Susana Martinez that institutes a tattletale line (#SAFE) directly to CYFD, forcing them to investigate every BS claim of child abuse with no increase in staff or budget.
CYFD is not the problem, it's you and your parents. Until you work to gain an understanding of the entirety of a problem and are willing to work to find a real solution, you really just need to shut up. Keep cutting the budgets of school districts and see how many future parents (today's children) believe you when you say you care about the protection of children when you didn't protect them from losing their favorite teacher, and didn't protect them when they needed you parents to step up on their behalf the most!
I do agree that there are many parents who do not have the ability or desire to look in the mirror when it comes to issues within the home. However, to say that nobody should blame CYFD is absolutely wrong. They operate in a black and white world whereas the real world operates in mostly grey area. Should parents cooperate with them... they don't leave much choice in the matter. They use tactics to create the "illusion" of parental inclusion; however, this is again simply not true. They came to my own home and stated that my son had to live somewhere else and that I was only allowed 4 hours a week with him, supervised! No substantiated abuse, NO neglect, NOTHING. A complaint was filed form someone who was upset with my family and due to current laws we now have to jump through hoops to get our son back. Sorry, but I call bullshit. There are children out there who desperately need CYFD's help, but we did NOT. They even admit that our son is a happy, healthy child. Hmmmmm... They do have a tough job; however, until something is done to change the way in which they operate, innocent families such as ours will continue to get hurt. I think that their funding could be used much differently. There have been no interviews with qualified mental health persons, yet they make judgments on mental stability?????

It's very plain and simple to see what actually goes on. After being with multiple program entities serving the social populace who qualify and who live in squalid conditions is both bogus and sad. There are 2 sides to the coin, and both need to be looked at before you can make the judgement in the cases. Each case is unique in every single facet, a single cookie'cutter method will not work for these situations.

There are individuals out there who have had warrented and substantiated claims of abuse and neglect who want the help, who will cooperate with an entity to remove themselves from their situation. They are thankful for the help they have received as paltry as it may or may not be.

There are also the tainted cases where biased is a factor or black mail and intimidation sway one party's opinion one way or another, and that should not be tolerated.

Instead of the bitching, whining and complaining of the system, you should educate yourself and others and take the initiative to be informed. So much slander and wrongful finger pointing is only keeping the public complacent. Humans think that they are basically entitled to anything and everything. It is a species that is a virus with shoes on.

We don't give a fuck about the planet we live on which we are destroying and suckling precious irriplacable resources 24/7/365 at an alarming rapid rate without ANY thoughts to how we can replenish what we are consuming. We do not heed to any other laws of nature which will be our end. Most justly the law of survival of the fittest and natural selection. An animal that is stupid, or does not work for it's food, shelter, sustancences and protection will not get a hand out from it's herd, pod, group, or peers. It is banished and killed for something else's food, pleasure, trophy. If we did the same for society when it comes to just repopulation, I think it should be simple to say if you cannot afford to bring a child into the world financially, or live independently that procreation shouldn't be an option for you until you can. The virus' are reproducing and consuming at an alarming rate with no pauses or stops. the virus is the ignorant bottom feeders of society who will do absolutely nothing with their lives and will just basically suck the tits of the working society around it meanwhile producing 10+ stupid/ignorant spawns who will do the exact same thing and continue the cycle. Now, I would totally sanction the offing of these people. able bodied ignorance who are capable physically and mentally to work, produce and contribute but CHOOSE not to, I would have zero qualms with putting a bullet into the back of their heads and burying them in a shallow grave. Because I'm a "green" type thinker we could also recycle and donate their organs to others who will make use of them.

I know, by now I've probably attracted the indignant and anti crowds who are asking me who am I to judge and make that call bla bla bla. My answer is this. I'm a social worker who has been in the field of child and family services for the last 11 years who is sick to death of society and its petty, loathful cycle of blame and punish and judgement. I have seen shit that I cannot unsee. I have read stories and police reports that would make you cringe, vomit and cry for the light of day. Time is valuable and we don't have the time, inclination or resource to investigate false accusations and bogus family quarrels who "get back" at eachother by calling these field workers at all hours of the day. If you were so anti-government and groups, then why fucking call? why can't you do it yourself big shot? your CYFD complaints are void and you have zero idea of what you're talking about. CYFD and I repeat many times DOES NOT, CAN NOT, WILL NOT, take your children... that is a police matter. solely. they (police) call CYFD when they're going to place them in their custody. the situations for doing so is dire, and emergency based. whiners, haters, get a fucking life.

Coming across many ex-caseworkers, most agree that the children's best interest is never in mind and that CYFD has now become a bureaucracy. I believe this program needs to be looked at and reviewed itself.

So what happens when you are over your required 60 days to a hearing from sending in paperwork back in October... finding out 2 months ago they lost you and then still have the nerve to tell you well there is others before you though it has been over 100 days (PLUS) to waiting on the caseworker who didn't do her job in the first place who lied in court.... YES CYFD NEEDS TO BE LOOKED INTO... i'm sure it can even fix the debt in this country... a joke to me... not in the best interest of children at all.....

Your story is quite like a few I have heard regarding the CYFD Case Workers, they seem to handle cases based on how you look and "they" feel. There does not appear to be any logical protocol or basic written procedures that CYFD investigators follow. Law Enforcement act like little puppets accepting what the absent minded, drug and alcohol infested case workers feel like saying based on what is on their agenda for that evening or that weekend. People should also know that CYFD investigators do not have the qualified skills necessary to protect children or infants. What person "in their right minds" hand back infants and toddlers to potential child abusers and killers, certainly not regular people like you and me, but those EXPERT phonies at CYFD, they do, and all without conscience. It makes one wonder if those workers at CYFD do drugs or are always with their alcoholic drinks in those cups they throw out just as the stater is ready to issue a ticket for speeding. Yes, it makes one wonder. These CYFD employees are involved in "partying with willing subjects that are being investigated" especially very young mothers, ask Matt Esquibel.

I agree with you and not the father who for some reason is angry with our governor. Come on man, place the blame where it belongs! Besides where did he get the idea that CYFD has NO money, that's a laugh. They have so much money they spend it on junk. I know mother who was supposed to be investigated, but was rather, doted upon by her buddies at CYFD. They put her through classes, intimitated and threatened the father at the mother's false statements. CYFD obtained educational CD's and videos for the mother, gave her expensive clothing and furniture for the children being abused and neglected by the mother; located housing, food stamps, social workers assistance, legal aid and attorney, fixed documents in the mother's favor for the courts, CYFD employees even provided her with legal assistance (don't know where they obtained their law degree from), and still work as "case workers and investigators"). So much for CYFD being understaffed and underpaid. Go to the sunshine portal and see how much these workers are underpaid! Some salaries could be used to hire six more CASEWORKERS with degrees in Psychology, Social Work, and Psychology, not these run-of-the-mill bullies with addictions and mental problems currently working for the state of New Mexico.

Too bad I had not read your smut before the elections. Your misinformation may have had some bearing on the ignorant and those who listen to what other people say rather than taking the time to do their own research. If you study your history, you will find that Republicans as a whole are considered "conservatives" and more than likely respect and uphold "family values." Republicans respect the Right-To-Life, do you have any idea what that is about? Republicans promote the truth that people work so that they can get ahead in life and be the masters of their "own" destiny and not the habitual takers of "hand-outs" and government freebies, know what I mean??

Personally I think we should get a lawyer and get a class action lawsuit going against the State of New Mexico. I used to work for them, and I totally understand that they are the most unorganized, uncaring, unprofessional group of professionals I have ever worked for. All the counties are run differently, I was told when I started working there, depending on who is in charge. Their set up policies and procedures is vague with a lot of holes in it, so, because they are a government entity, they think they can get away with anything. And yes, the basic idea of child abuse is horrible and indeed we need to keep our children safe, but the overt abuse cases are the only ones that they can actually do anything about. If a consumer is smarter than CYFD, they can outsmart CYFD. I have seen it happen. And, a lot depends on who the judges are at the time. I personally have been falsely accused of abuse and neglect in the past and have really had it with these groups of professionals who confess to be about keeping children safe, while they actually are one of the poorest run government agencies I have ever seen. I think it is about time that New Mexico hire some people who are from out of state and have them straighten out the mess they have. When reports go thru the statewide centeral intake in Albuquerque, they have the option to screen in calls or simply not screen them in. And, the people that are screening the calls do not do checks on the people making the allegations, so anyone can call and make up lies about anyone, and if it sounds half way true, an investigation is started. I am very sorry that I ever moved to the God forsaken state. Should have stayed in Ohio or California where I lived previously and NEVER HAD A CALL MAKE AGAINST ME! That should tell you something. On top of this horrible system, New Mexico has many other antiquated and untrained political people running the show, and this makes me just sick! I am about to sell my house, maybe get a lawyer and sue the State, and hopefully get as far away from this "Kingdom of the Sun" which is no longer very nice to live in as the weather seems to be awful the last few years. More snow and wind and cold in the winter, which was never the case before, and exdrutiatingly hot weather in the summer. New Mexico is bad all the way around in my book lately. Good luck to anyone who agrees with me and you can contact me at [email protected] if you want to talk more.

Any advice? How do we get these nazis out of our hair? Why do they bother a two parent family that tries to raise children with old fashioned manners and respect for elders instead of doing their jobs and getting kids out of the hands of crackheads?

To madd realist: I think you are missing the big picture here people are losing there kids for being good parents, when there are parents out there that are worthless. Yes parents care about their childs education BUT thats not what theiy are talking about they are talking about KEEPING THEIR KIDS AT HOME WITH THEM. it seem to me you have no children and if you do they probably have no repect for you or others.

Have you noticed when an officer of the law or even an attorney is busted for breaking the law, they've made front page? well here in roswell they have. funny, i found info regarding a CYFD worker here that opened a case illegally against a family, was pulled over and was Driving Under the Influence and had narcotics in her car. where was that in the paper or even in the news? why the cover up? is the state afraid to uncover how bad these people they feel are "protecting" our children are? They are no better than we are. Child abusers need to be locked away and even put in the electric chair. CYFD needs to be held accountable and investigated for commiting crimes and using innocent kids as leverage to commit them.
Yes the cyfd social worker who was busted for DUI was placed as receptionist at the San Mateo office. Now she's all of a sudden back as a social worker, there's about ten that I have see. Busted and are just moved to different area or county.
Same goes of any other trouble they just move them or promote, really all other agencies your job is gone CYFD well....

Oh that's rich Walt, the way you "change the subject" from the criminally insane at CYFD to bad mouthing churches and sticking it to the parents, a few are the actual trouble-makers.

And how it's society's bad seeds that force CYFD to act and react with vulgar display of bullying, harassing, and committing acts of creating false documents to discredit the innocent, placing helpless children in the custody of predators.

No it's not the church's fault CYFD fails to operate with a morale conscience, nor is it the fault of parents trying their best to care for their children.

If CYFD's job is so impossible, lets get the legislature & our representatives to work a plan to DISMANTLE the CYFD beast limb-from-limb.

You see that's the job that's almost impossible, Restructuring cyfd for overall performance, accountability and rewards.###

CYFD has an impossible job. People have babies they have no idea how to raise, can hardly afford to feed, and would rather neglect than give up their drugs and booze for.
The church is little help, obviously. In fact, you could say pretty much the same thing about them that you can say about CYFD.
We can start by sterilizing serial welfare queens and deadbeat dads, but that's a non-starter for those who think it's a plot against minorities. So until we can talk openly about how a large percentage of the population recreate without any plan, nothing's going to get better.

The mad realist must be a cyfd employee or best buds, the way they change the focus from cyfd employees to school budgets and finding fault with the governor. Get a grip!

CYFD employees have failed to perform their duties with respect and courtesy, especially where the lives of children are at risk.

And why blame the governor, that's acting rather prejudice.

Place the blame where it rightfully belongs, with incompetent, dysfunctional cyfd employees using their job positions for personal gain.###

So did u get the kiddos or get certified? This goes on a lot if they have promised kiddos to people and if they just don't like you. What were the supers names
]I’m married and have two daughters ages 24 and 15. My 24 year old daughter attends college in Albuquerque and my 15 year old is in high school maintaining a 4.0 average. I have an solid job earning over $120,000 as a Federal Law Enforcement officer serving as an Academy Instructor for our Agency. I obviously have a clean background without even a traffic ticket on my record. I have been a Federal agent for over 17 years. I have a nice 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home and no dept. other than my home mortgage.
In January of this year, my family and I were eating dinner together when the topic of adopting a child came up. We all relished in the idea of how wonderful it would be to have a little boy or another little girl as a new member of our family. I am also a Scoutmaster in my community and attend church with my family regularly. The day after our dinner discussion of adopting a child, my father called me and relayed to me about his experience in church that day. He told me about a wonderful little boy, age 5, who was being fostered by a good family that I know. My father teaches Sunday school to the 5 year olds. My father explained how sad it was to find out that the boy was going to be moving onto another foster family. I couldn’t believe that it was just a coincidence that the day after our family dinner discussion this adoptable boy is brought into the picture. I went to my father’s church, same denomination, the next Sunday. I met this boy and his 6 year old sister and my family and I immediately fell in love with the two little ones. After discussing it with my family, I informed the foster family that we were going to immediately do everything we can to adopt those two kids.
We took the mandatory “PRIDE” training which consisted of an 1 hour drive to Carlsbad, NM, 3 hours of class and an hour drive home. Five hours three times a week for the entire month of February. A CYFD worker came and inspected my home. We were finger printed for background checks. I completed a list of tasks (water tests, medical exams, ect.) and got my home ready. Then we all had our 1 on 1 interviews.
I want you to understand that the two specific children that we were interest in have been with a good foster family for the last 1 ½ years. This foster family happens to be good friends of my parents and I for the last 12 years. I know firsthand that these kids have made tons of progress in light of the horrors of neglect and abuse from their original family.
While we received our interviews in attempt to becoming certified to foster/adopt, we were totally bombarded with 100% negative horrific information concerning the 2 kids and behavioral issues. CYFD did not even tell us one single positive or hopeful thing about them. For whatever reason, CYFD felt it necessary to release full disclosure of all negative information to my wife and I while we were attempting to get certified. And to make matter worse they even threw in several hypothetical scenarios, what would you do if scenes. In my interview, it didn’t bother me because I was very well aware of the positive progress of the kids. My wife on the other hand was shock and awed with images of “Denise the Menace and his sister from hell”. My wife was evaluated and found to be a bit apprehensive by CYFD.

While living in Santa Fe, a school nurse's aid called CPS saying my daughter told her that she was passing out at home from her diabetes & I wasn't doing anything about it. My daughter said she never made the comment, but CPS said the nurse is a diabetic expert. The nurse was fired that day because a background check found out she did not know anything about diabetes, but lied to get the job. No investigation.

November 16, 2006
I showed up to pick my daughter up from school & she was in CPS custody, because she was still passing out from her diabetes. The diabetics experts said that I was doing a great job in her care & that she was in greater danger with them.

December 19
CPS called to say that since they had no evidence the negligence occurred, they were returning her. In court in January, 2007, CPS stated they had no evidence or probable cause that negligence ever existed & there was no need to proceed, but could not explain how custody can occur if there is no evidence.

January 7, 2007
The court & CPS dismiss the case due to lack of evidence. In fact, at no time did CPS ever visit my home or interview me & give me any chance to deny or disprove the complaint. They didn't even know where I lived- they had 3 addresses for me, one of which was my work address!
