I lost my son in December because I died due to my kidney & liver both failing. I was in ICU for 8 days & during that time my father picked up my son. Because I was in a foster home when I was 15 DCFS took my 6 year old son from his home. He went to the police station in an attempt to get my son back & told them I was a heavy drug addict that didnt give a sh** about my little boy and has a history of suicidal tendencies. None of this is true however for almost a year now my son has been trapped in a group home. I am taking clean drug tests doing parenting classes individual counseling conjoint therapy and I get to visit my kid 2 days a week. 1 visit is 2 hours and the 2nd is only 1. He has now celebrated his 7th birthday and begun 2nd grade. He now dives off a diving board and can ride his bicycle without training wheels. My DCFS worker tells me that Im not really on the right pather to get him back and after Januarys court hearing he will be adopted to a new family, if they decide that I dont qualify. I have followed every order given by the judge in the minute order. Yes I DONT QUALIFY!! HES MY GODDAMNED SON. HOW THE HELL DO I NOT F****NG QUALIFY????????
[QUOTE/] who="Beth"]I agree, DCFS is worthless. My husband has a 9 yr old daughter who lives with her mother and stepfather. The stepfather had grabed her and her sister and pulled them together so hard that their heads bumped together really hard. DCFS was informed, the stepfather admitted to doing it and said it was an accident and it wouldn't happen again. My husband was in contact with DCFS the whole time during this incident. As usual, they didn't do anything about it and it was unfounded like the incident never took place. It's really sad that it practically takes a child to be killed before DCFS will do anything and then when it does happen, they right it off as..well we didn't know that was going on.[/QUOTE]

DCFS interefered after ,Social Sevices conducted an investigation,without any evidence to support the claim ...The case was closed and proved . The woman who filed the complaint was seeking for revenge with the intent to procure a conviction ,she filed false statements with different offices until she got help from a friend who works at DCFS who did not do any investigation. Both agencies they denied reports for the trial Attorney that was evidence that the woman was looking for revenge for $800.00 out of anger she reported and reported until she got what she wanted ...He was sentenced to 15 years to life..

I called DCFS to file a report for child endangerment I have witnesses to support the claim and they refused to do it. They are ignnorants ,they only help and induce their friends to make fraudulent reports,against innocent people without condunting an investigation.

Yes, we all need to pray daily for the parents and children who were forced apart. NCCPR has a lot of good information for those who need to know the system. CPSwatchlegalteam also has excellent resources for parents. Cheryl Barnes book "Parent's Guide to the System" is a must read. Also, there are many websites "legally kidnapped" "Suncanaa" and so many, many more that will give some step by step information for parents and how cps/dhs runs and how you can document your case and prove wrong the lies and prove perjury. I too have lost 6 beautiful, young children - where no evidence was presented, but the judge was biased and the dhs determined and CASA and ad litem worked together. So what is a parent, with little resources to do? Pray for God to do something!

I understand how a parent or parents feel when there child is taken away from them whether it be for neglect drugs and alcohol or whatever the case may be we come from all walks of life but we bare something in common the love of our children. My daughter has been taken from me and now the foster parents want to adopt her because she is a great child. How do you think she got that way. I am still fighting for her and yes dcfs makes themselves out to be good people but I know my daughter wants to be home. I would like to think as parents we can band together and get some rights back as far as our children are concerned we need to work together. Our children are the most important in our lives regardless of the mistakes we have made as parents. I to did what they asked of me only to lose my daughter to the system so if we can lets work together at least to allow us some contact with our children. Please reply if not on here then to syrianna0525@yahoo.com

Parents there are so many fighting, hoping and by making other parents aware. Join CPSWatch @ yahoo groups, join NCCPR, Parental Rights.org , legallykidnapped, fightcps, and so many others. The possibilities are endless. By informing neighbors, friends, relatives and going to the courthouse on social services day in your town, you can inform other parents. Tell them to find Cheryl Barnes book, "Parent's Guide to the System" at cpswatchlegalteam. Tell them to read all the CPS/DHS policy manuals, study on how to make your attorney work for you. There is so much to learn and so little time. This could be the best information you could share with another parent because you never know when it will be needed!

I just dont get it my 2yr old was taken away from july of this year because her doctor noticed a small bruise on her lower back.It didnt appear to hurt or bother her when the doctor probed at the it. I wasnt aware of it until the doctor pointed it out.My daughter spent nearly a week in the hospital while a so called bruse expert analyzed her.Because I wasnt aware of the bruise and couldn't explain how it got there they took her away.I was there every day and night as they ran hundrends of nonsense tests.My daughter was tramatized any time that she saw someone wearing scrubs walk into the room.The dcf people were so rude the constantly cut me off in mid-sentence and twisted everything that I said or did in the hospital. One day they were going to sedate her for a exam.I said that I had concerns about the sedative the that they wanted to use on my daughter and they accused me of refusing the exam. Prior to the exam the doctors told me that she couldnt have anything to eat or drink not even water from 4am until the time of the exam. Well... the didnt perform the exam until nearly 5pm. All day I had to hear my daughter cry " mommy I hungry" and "mommy want please" and there wasnt a damn thing that I could do about. While she couldnt eat or drink, I didnt eat or drink. They starved and dehydrated my poor child but im supposed to be the one thats abusing her.DCF takes children from the wrong people. I know two women who have had DCF involved. One is a drug addict, currently in a domestically violent relationship, and one of her children is special needs.She still has her children and they have never been removed. The other women has stated that she doent want her kids and has threatened on several ocassions to kill her chilren.They were removed but returned shortly after. Im dealing with DCF in Massachusetts. Good louck to you all!!. Im praying for the day that my heart will return to me :)

Believe in yourself and eventually it will see you through! If you signed the case plan then you have to follow the services, however, you should only do what is COURT ORDERED. From here on out, document every visit, phone call, meeting, home visit and appointment. Send this document letter by certified mail to the person involved at each. Save the original for your files. The DCFS will lie about you on the stand, as will CASA, ad litem, psychologist, therapists, teachers, caseworker and DCFS attorney. You may prove perjury and establish the fact if you present evidence of uncontested fact of each visit, phone call etc. This will be your word against theirs. If you have a lousy, in their pocket parent counsel then you must inform them of your documentation. You may also write a court report (do not include hearsay)just facts of your case and history. The DCFS and CASA and therapists will also write court reports. Enter this evidence 2 weeks prior to hearings, and attach your documentation letters. Read Cheryl Barnes book, "A Parent's Guide to the System". Best advice ever! Join CPSwatch yahoo groups. Also, get sworn affidavits from colleages, family, friends, family doctor for your credibility and parental credibility. Build your case now before the hearing. I know all too well what hell you are all living. I live it every day and have hope only in God my Saviour!

DCFS admitted to lying on their findings report and then called it a typo. It was a whole paragraph where they stated I refused family services. I'm in the middle of a custody battle, spent nearly 25k so I asked them who in there right mind would refuse family services. They admitted there mistake, but I still haven't seen my kids in nearly 2 months.
My little girl fell at the park. She is 5 and ex-wife took her in to ER. My girl said she fell, 6 witnesses said she fell, and independent doctor said her injury is completely indicative of falling. DCFS interviewed my little girl 5 days later after her mother taught her to say I pulled her out of bed by her arm. Even though the 1st words out of her mouth is she fell and all doctors confirmed it could be from falling DCFS still won't let me call or see my kids.
I've contacted the inspector general. The ex-wife admitted to cocaine use and 2 police officers report her to DCFS for being intoxicated around children and she gets custody of kids because my little daughter fell. I reported ex-wifes lawyer to Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Committee for sending pictures of himself to ex-wife at 1:30am. Now everything I do is neglect, while everything she does is un-founded. This is fraud and DCFS admitted to lying in there report, but they called it a typo. Its a paragraph long and now that can't proof I refused family services there calling it a typo.
We should all ban together and file a class action against DCFS or at least contact the media regarding our stories. If you all want to ban together contact me and lets fight for our kids.

D.C.F.S in Los Angeles steals kids at an alarming rate and 60 kids in 32 months have been murdered in their possession. They make a lot of money from the government every time they snatch a child away from their parents. The Armenian mafia has control over some of the bureau heads, hopefully the truth will come out and something will be done about the nightmare.

DCFS is an outrage they used my veteran status against me ti indicate me as a seriouse risk to my son. They said due to my "special training" i am a serouse threat to cause harm or death to my ex and my son. So let me ask this of anyone who can answere me when did becomeing an honorable veteran who served two tours in iraq have the same status as a scarlet letter. I should be held in the highest reguards to my service to my country not Hiding in shame because dcfs thinks its a risk. Let me ask dcfs this, how many veterans work for you? how many veterans are your sons or daughters, brothers and sisters, moms and dads? Not only did you discriminate against me but It was an attack on all veterans. If anyone who agrees with me that dcfs should clean house and get rid of this scum let me hear it let me know that we will take it no more and rise up against the system

You must get witnesses on your behalf. If your lawyers won't help you then file, copy and send the notices yourself. Testimony is very crucial because it shows their lies.

I am in the process of dealing with a DCFS lady who already is jumping to conclusions, not following proper procedures & has threatened to take my daughter to foster care. I called her supervisor who was the complete opposite of her & he said they are short handed & cannot put anyone else on this case. It's no wonder no one wants the job, probably all the "good" people that didn't want to follow DCFS procedures, left! I had to deal with DCFS about 9 years ago & went thru the same thing! My ex was abusing my son with a belt & left bruises, I had pics from the hospital as proof, & they let me keep him ONE extra night & then I had to send him back to his dad on our regular custody arrangement...all because his dad promised he would not use corpal punishment again. Yeah, that was a lie!! I have no faith in DCFS!

I've been on this site, about a year ago. I've made a few comments before.. pg 56 or 57. I noticed that none of you complaining parents or family members have the balls to say anything to me about what i've written. So go's to show I'm right. If the dcf doesn't see you fit or think you don't have the childrens best interest then you probably don't.
