Tompkins County CPS is corrupt, I know this, because my sister has been fighting with them for almost 3 years to get her kids back and they have done everything in their power to ensure that she doesn't get them back. It all started in Oct 2008, my sister trusted someone to watch her kids and was betrayed by the person she trusted. In fact her own mother went and lied to CPS about my sister being a drunk, mind you this woman had absolutely nothing to do with my sister or her kids in over 6 months, so how did she know what my sister did? I, on the other hand, spoke to my sister 4-5 times a week. But yet when I told CPS about what kind of person the grandmother was, they didn't want to hear it. In fact the grandmother involved other people in this mess. The grandmother has everyone convinces that my sister is a bad mother, yet she didn't raise any of the 4 kids she had. The grandmother had sent me away to live with my aunt not even 6 months after I returned from California. She didn't have any contact with my sister for over 8 years and has had no contact with our brother since he was 8 years old and he is 32 now. My sister told me that when her kids tried to tell her about the grandmother was doing to them, the CPS worker would stop them, telling them that now wasn't the time to be saying anything. In my mind that is covering up abuse and that is against the law. These people are suppose to protect children, not keep them with abusers. But from what I have read about CPS it's all about money, the get paid for every child that is in foster care and then get bonuses for every child that gets adopted out. It is sickening. I'm sure my sister is not the only one that is going through this with this agency. Something needs to be done before more kids are killed by their foster parents. I mean the grandmother actually got away with beating the crap out of my then 3 year old nephew. My niece told her mother that she witnessed her little brother being beat and her grandmother telling her little brother, that if he didn't go home and go to sleep that she was going to "fucking kill him". The grandmother then left the 3 year old outside his grandfather's house. No one knew he was there until his grandfather's girlfriend opened the door and found him rolled up into a ball on the front porch. But yet the grandmother got away with it. The CPS worker that went to my stepdad's house actually told the girlfriend to be careful about what she said. Just recently I read that my 7 year old niece had lyme disease to the extent that her face became paralyzed. I did my research and found that someone has to have had lyme disease for a while for that to happen. To me that sounds like the grandmother neglected to take my niece to the doctor when she first was bitten. Anyway, I just want to see if anybody else is having this same problem with Tompkins County CPS and my sister and I are going to keep fighting to get those kids back. They need to be back with their mother who misses them terribly.

In fact Tompkins County CPS is so corrupt that they actually tried to scare me into letting the grandmother see my child. I was told that if I wouldn't allow the grandmother to see my child that they were going to work on my husband until he gave in and let this horrible person see my kid. How low do you have to go to threaten someone and right in front of their family? Stupid move on their part.

My nephews parents both surrendered their rights to Dss in July, the maternal grandmother, who is a drug addict and alcoholic was given placement by Dss! His bio mom who hadn't cared for him since the beginning of his life despises me as I do her and has told cps some awful things that are so far from the truth but cps believes the heroin addict and refuses to let my husband and I have custody! I've reached out to cps since she tested positive at his birth and they did nothing! Now he's been removed from the family and is in foster care and won't tell us where and no one can see him! Cps is basing its decision on information from a heroin addict mother and drunk grandmother please tell me how that is justice for my nephew who had been in my care off and on for 15 months except for when I'd say no to giving out money or object to something these people have done, then they would take him from us until I gave in! All I've tried to do for 15 months is protect this baby from his mother and grandmother and now I have to battle cps wich I intend on doing until he is returned to us where he belongs! The workers and lawyers at Dss are uneducated and discriminate as well as judge and jury bullshit I will fight for my boy and win

Your story is almost an exact match to what my husband and I are going thru. I couldn't believe it when I read this, I'm so sorry about what your going thru and I know how this feels. My nephew is 16 months and I have cared for him and my heroin addict sister since I found out she was pregnant . I also turned her In several times and cps did nothing. Then after a few months she was involved in a drug deal with the baby in the car still cps let her keep him. It's pathetic. Finally her worker talked them into terminating their rights and they gave him to her mother that had a history of drinking and drug use. I turned her in after I found out she put the baby in a car with a drunk and instead of considering anyone in the extended family the took him on a Friday so nobody could petition the court for placement. It's been two months since we've seen him. We were told he's stopped talking and is having problems with eating. This is purely neglect and abuse on cps to allow this innocent boy to be treated this way it is very obvious that he misses us. He was calling us mama and dada we were his family the only family that has been stability for him and cps won't consider us at all. Come to find out my husbands ex wife's mother is a supervisor at Dss in the foster and adoptive unit. It's just wrong and criminal. We have a lawyer and are fighting but how much longer does he suffer and regress in foster care. We need some help an advocate for families or someone to stand up for this baby he's so innocent and has been abused and neglected enough it has to stop.

Can anyone recommend a lawyer in Ithaca who fights CPS. They just took my 5 month old grandson and placed him with my drug addict ex husband who has never even met the child. I asked for him to be placed with me - I'm a mandated reporter, licensed to treat addiction and have the child often. They denied my request. Its time to fight!!
