Help Needed in Phoenix

December 22, 2013 in Arizona, biological parents, caseworker, Child Protective Services

My story starts off with my ex-girlfriend that has mental condition and left with my baby boy Danny. She refused to get treatment and CPS was called to make sure my son was safe.

The caseworker Ann Britenmister was always so rude to me and my family and she decided to place my baby boy with a family in foster care. I have not got to see him at all.

I love my son but she thinks because I am only 18, I can’t care for him. She called me today saying if I don’t comply with her request, my son Danny with be placed for adoption. There are people my age raising kids and people my age fighting wars, but I can’t raise my son? I love him with all my heart. I work to be able to provide for him. I have asked for a new caseworker but haven’t got any response.

Can someone help me please?

Trouble in North Dakota

14020 PATH North Dakota Foster Care

PATH North Dakota Foster Care

Please help, we have a tyrant CPS worker here in Hettinger, ND who is harassing me and three other families.  We would all like to file a joint complaint. Where do we go? What do we do?

I am under ongoing investigation for “educational neglect” because I homeschool. My neighbor is under ongoing investigation for “educational interference,” for refusing to put her 5 year old on mind-altering ADHD medications.

There are 2 more families I have been in contact with as well.

North Dakota takes more kids into foster care than any other state — I just found that out. They were recently granted 35 million dollars from the Federal government for doing this. They are literally profiling and selling our children off to prospective parents.

Help!

All four families would like to file a complaint against the one worker. We know we cannot change the world, but the ongoing harassment is unacceptable. We know we cannot change North Dakota and two of us plan to move as soon as possible, but the other two families cannot move. If we could at least get this caseworker terminated that would help so many innocent kids from being Kidjacked and sold off to new homes.

My advice?

My best advice is contained in this post. You need to start a shit-storm for that woman and make her life miserable. You should call her EVERYDAY and calmly, plainly state what you want from her. Call your US House Rep., if your state has an ombudsman contact him. Tell everyone that will listen.

ASK them (CPS) how to file a complaint. BY LAW they have to give you the paperwork. If they refuse, make sure you indicate that within your report when you file it. That is a form in three or four parts.  Everyone, all the way up to your congressman will know there is a problem.  It can get ugly.  Make her life HELL. But do it with a smile. Have fun!

Do you have any advice for this mother?  Anyone here live in North Dakota that could offer her some guidance and some help?

Are you a sociopath?

October 18, 2011 in caseworker, Child Protective Services, DSS, parent-child relationship, parental rights

I would like to publicly thank Carolynn Middleton for posting her letter: Caseworkers- Are You Contented? We’ve all asked ourselves the same questions, in a nutshell we want to know what kind of animal could be so cruel to another human being?

I would like to print this letter off and get it into the hands of every caseworker in America.

Caseworkers- Are You Contented?

We all like to think of ourselves as righteous, noble, honorable, and ethical, with dignity and self respect. But, in cases where there is no abuse/neglect, or where indications of abuse/neglect are quite questionable, how do you sleep at night. How do you live with yourself knowing that, earlier in the day you tore a family apart? How do you look at yourself in the mirror in the morning, knowing that you apprehended a child(ren), taken them away from their parents, and left a family devastated, and maybe you really didn’t need to?

Think for a moment…

Whether you are a religious person or not, this is a pretty good Personal Rule, “Do onto others as you would have done onto you.” With that in mind, how would you feel if someone came along and hurt your children, your spouse, and your family, without good reason, even though they may have thought they had good reason?

In many or our planet’s animal species, the mother will die trying to protect her offspring from would-be predators. I know there are cases where children need to be taken into custody to protect them. 

But what about all of those children who’ve been apprehended who don’t need to be?

  • Are you a narcissist?
  • Are you a sociopath?
  • Do you take delight in causing someone else pain?
  • Or is it that you just don’t think about it?
  • Or is it that you really don’t care?

I know many people who got into the field of social work because they wanted to help others. That is a very noble sentiment. But how does unnecessarily devastating a family and tearing it apart, help? How does dragging parents into court and through a long and drawn out bureaucratic process help? Certainly if a child is being seriously abused/neglected- then they need your help, and the important thing here is to try and help them.

But many foster homes are either inadequate or run by people I wouldn’t trust to care for my pet rock. [Continue Reading…]

Whether you mail it, email it or hand deliver it, doesn’t matter. What matters is getting CPS Agents to examine their own motives. I’ve personally spoken with caseworkers, investigators, even supervisors who staff child protective service offices and many of them are feeling guilty about the work they do. Any worker worth their salt knows she is causing more harm than good.

Perhaps, we can give them a little shove in the right direction. This is not about simply collecting a paycheck. We are dealing with the lives of millions of children. The entire makeup of the country is being changed – hardly a single life has been left untouched by the vultures at the Department of Health and Human Services. The family unit is being destroyed and our nation will never be the same.

We should refer to this generation as The Lost Generation. You don’t have to be a statistician to realize the significance of the numbers. I am involved with family rights issues on a daily basis. I consider myself very informed on the issues and these numbers even freaked me out. I’m devastated by these numbers. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

CPS Inflicts Pain

July 1, 2009 in caseworker, Child Protective Services, CPS, foster care, investigation, Washington

CPS Prevents Mother From Being With Dying Child

My name is Haley; CPS stole my children on April 30, 2009.

How It All Began

On March 2, 2009, my daughter Emma Grace passed away she was 11-months-old. My husband and I were not home at the time of her death, we were at the hospital visiting our new daughter Chloe, and she had been born 2 months early.

At 12:30 p.m. on the 2nd of March 2009, we received a call from our landlord saying we had to come home that our daughter Emma Grace was dead, we rushed home, which was one hour away. Our uncle was watching all the kids (we had 5 children at the time).

CPS Inflicts Pain!

As Our Child Was Dying

When we got to our home the police were there, they said our daughter had been taken to the hospital but they refused to tell us if she was okay. They kept us there for 90-minutes questioning us, and then they finally allowed us to leave to go to the hospital.

Now this entire time they still would not tell us if our daughter was okay, they would not let us call the hospital to check on her. When we finally got to the hospital, they told us our daughter had passed away. We were robbed of her last few minutes of life.

When they told me that she had passed, I fell screaming to the floor, I was hysterical, it was like a horrible nightmare that I could not wake up from. I kept screaming at God for taking my baby.

CPS Investigates

We were kept at the hospital for 6-hours and the entire time the police were at our home, "investigating." When they finally let us go home, the neighbor said, CPS was here and they said that you cannot have your kids back.

I took my children anyway and went to my mother’s home, the next morning I was a wreck I had to go to the CPS office.

I asked then what is going on. They said, "We need to know where your kids are." I said, "Why?"

They said you can either cooperate with us by doing voluntary services with us or we will take custody of your children. Now keep in mind, my daughter had just passed away — it had not even been 12-hours and they were threatening us.

They bullied us into doing voluntary services with them, we did not know our rights, and we honestly thought that they had made a mistake and that they would leave us alone. We felt we had done no wrong. We know we are great parents, we do not believe in spanking or yelling at children.

We have never taken illegal drugs or drank, we attended church regularly and we had only moved twice in 7-years.

They came to our home constantly, always surprising us never calling us. We thought everything was going fine, then we found out our home had an infestation of black mold. So, we decided to move because we had heard that black mold can cause health issues.

No News Is Not Good News

Now with all this stress happening CPS still came out unannounced all the time. Then on April 13th, we stopped hearing from them. They did not call or come to our home at all. We called and left several messages, but we did not hear back from them.

Then on April 30th, we were at my mother in laws home and CPS came with the police and took our children. The only reason they gave was that in the social workers opinion I had mental health issues due to the grief of our loss.

She did not believe that we could parent our children. It was a ridiculous notion. Yes, I was and still am grieving the loss of my baby, what parent wouldn’t?

Grief A Cause For Removal?

But according to the social worker I was grieving too much and crying too much. The social worker is only 21-years-old; she has no kids — not even a husband. So what makes her such an expert?

She cannot even begin to fathom the depth of my feelings for my children, and this whole thing makes no sense if she was so concerned about my children then why didn’t she call me or come check on them for over 2 weeks?

Caseworkers Violate Court Order

We went to the shelter care hearing and the judge court ordered all 4 of my children to be placed with my mother and father, but they still to this day have only placed the 3 oldest with my parents, they have not placed my baby with them.

We were court ordered to do all these services that CPS was supposed to pay for, but they still have not sent me the referrals, so I went and paid for them myself.

Our baby is still with a "foster family" we had a family team meeting on the 5th of June. What a joke that was! The foster family who has my baby were there and they said that they wanted to adopt my baby!

I said there is no way!

Speedy Trial? Fat Chance of That

We had court today the 9th of June it was all nonsense. They asked for a continuance and of course the judge granted it. Since this all began I have only got to see my baby twice.

I cannot afford an attorney, but they have nothing on me. They tried to say I was a drug addict, so I went and did a UA (urine analysis) every day and paid for it out of my own pocket; It of course came back negative — no drugs or alcohol. This is the most senseless thing I have ever heard of.

CPS Inflicts Pain!

Protesting Illegal Actions of CPS Workers

We are protesting with a lot of families at the CPS office with signs and banners, the news team from Channel 5 and other news stations will be here in Everett, Washington at 840 North Broadway (the CPS office).

We need to all stand together on this. They are taking our children for money. They get money each time they steal a child and each time they place a child with adoptive parents.

We need to all unite and become one voice for our children. We need 2000 signatures to get a bill passed at the legislature. Please come sign our petition and help us reunite families torn apart.

Terrorist Among Us

You know the real terrorists are CPS and the lawyers who work with them, as well as the judges. They are violating our kids and us. This is supposed to be America the land of the free, that is not true anymore. No longer do i see my country through rose-colored glasses.

Now I see it for what it really is, greedy, conniving, thieves, liars, terrorists.

So, please share this post with all the people you know, we need to set up rallies and get petitions signed. We need to change the laws for our children and the sake of their future.

Stand With Us

Don’t forget starting Friday the 12th of June every day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 840 North Broadway, in Everett, Washington. Be there! We can as one make a difference.

If you have any questions, or advice, please call me, we can use all the advice and support we can get.

Today we went to our preliminary hearing and the "lawyer" the court assigned to us still does not know if she wants to take it to trial. I gave her two psych evaluations and of course they claim they cannot find them. I gave them depositions from a lot of family and friends and of course once again they claim they cannot find them. This is so frustrating.

CPS Inflicts Pain!

I honestly do not feel as if this is America anymore. This is no longer the home of my birth, the land of the free the home of the brave. Yea, right more like the land of if-you-have-money-you-can-do-anything-you want, but if not, then guess what, you have no more rights then women over in Iraq who are persecuted all the time. This is the most outright wrongful thing I have ever been through. If I had not gone through it myself, then I would not have believed it, but I will never give up I will get my babies back.

One strong honest voice is louder then a screaming crowd. We all need to unite together, not just us parents going through this but all Americans — all true Americans. We stood together against England to fight for our rights and know we need to all stand together, against those who try and take away our God given rights as parents.

How can anyone tell us we are not fit to be parents? I carried my children for 9-months and I have been raising them for 10-years. I am a wonderful mother. I would give my life for my children. I would gladly rip my heart out of my chest to save my babies from even one moment of pain.

In the Best Interest of the Children?

This is killing my children, my son is 2, every time I go to see my kids at our scheduled visits, when I tell him I love him he starts crying, hysterically, because, he thinks I am leaving. This is hard on us but it is even harder on our children.

I know, there are many of hundreds of thousands of us parents out there, please call me anytime day or night or email me, if we all stand together we can and will prevail. You are all in my prayers remember never give up, these are our children our future we are fighting for.

Wrong on many levels!

January 1, 2009 in caseworker, family court, family rights, foster care, investigation, neglect, Nevada, Texas

Our family lives in Texas. My brother and his wife moved back to Texas in February 2007. They had a one-year-old son and another child on the way. The mom has a mental illness (bipolar with schizophrenic tendencies) and had a breakdown in March of 2007 and went into hiding.

Panic Button!

In the end, she returned to Reno, Nevada.

My brother immediately filed for an emergency custody, protective order, and mental health warrants, but the mom was already hiding (Nevada law technically considers this a felony). Fast forward ten months and the children have been taken into custody in Reno (this was an absolute necessity!) My brother is contacted by CPS and advised that his children were taken into custody in January 2008. He learns that his second child is a girl.

The mom is charged with neglect that is later amended to mental incapacity. My brother is initially charged with abandonment that is subsequently dismissed after supporting documentation is sent to CPS. My brother agreed to enroll in and attended a parenting class; anger management evaluation; and DNA testing to verify paternity.

My brother (and other members of our family) participated in two court hearings in February and March 2008 via telephone. Initially, it appeared that CPS would be sending the children to my brother pending completion of an Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) study, (technically not required when a child is placed with a biological parent – non offending). The children received a new caseworker in April, at that time almost all contact with the caseworker stopped.

We drove to Reno for the hearing in July. My brother was initially reprimanded for not letting the court know that we would be there, until he was able to explain. In the end, the CPS representative was reprimanded for “taking sides,” in not exploring paternal family placement options, and for contradicting medical professionals, which stated that the mom was not able to independently care for her young children and might never be able to, as well as several other things.

A hearing was scheduled to take place at the nine-month mark in October, to discuss placement options.

All of our immediate family appeared in court in October and the master overseeing the case had made an error in scheduling the placement hearing as a review hearing, so nothing happened in court that day.

The foster-father also came to court to support my brother, something that he says he has never done before (the foster parents see the children everyday and observed the strong bond between my brother and his children and the lack of bonding with the mom, as well as lack of ability to care for the children).

Another hearing was supposed to be scheduled in the following two-weeks, but that didn’t happen either. The next court date is scheduled for January 6 and 7, 2009 to discuss placement (originally scheduled for January 22, 2009). CPS will be recommending reunification with the mom (the parent the children were removed from).

Now, there are a few pertinent facts that need to be included at this point. Some may seem obvious, but I want to be as thorough as possible.

Because they are married, my brother has joint legal custody of the children. The mom committed a Nevada felony when she went into hiding with the children.

The children were in a horrid condition when CPS intervened on their behalf. The son had regressed to a 9-month-old in some areas. With good care in the foster home, he has significantly improved from this environmental affect on his development (i.e., he has recovered from her neglect).

My brother is the non-offending parent and has not been charged with any offense. He lives out of state, and CPS has stated that living out of state makes it very difficult for placement.

At the time the children were taken into custody by CPS in Nevada, Texas still had a pending court action regarding custody of the children, thus they had jurisdiction in this matter.

The mental health evaluations of the mom state that she in incapable of caring for the children independently, and may never be able to. She has three adult children that she was also unable to raise. One recently won a hardship scholarship to Stanford based on an essay about being homeless and neglected most of her life.

The mom was recently allowed her first all-day visit, and an overnight visit, in anticipation of reunification in January. CPS did tell him that he could file for custody against the mom as soon as the children are returned to the mom.

Now for some opinions

This is wrong on so many levels. It does not seem fair that the parent who is the victim of parental kidnapping should not have had his children returned immediately. CPS is basically condoning this illegal behavior because they state that those legal issues do not concern them. The father has lost 10-months of the children’s lives because of the mom and another year because of CPS. And what about civil rights…he has the right to have his children.

Nevada does not have jurisdiction over my brother, yet they have refused to place his children with him while the mom works on her case plan. Instead, the Nevada taxpayers are paying for foster placement. The mental health reports speak for themselves…mom is not mentally or emotionally able to care for the children. I realize that CPS has an obligation to assist the mom, but the children should be their first priority.

Reunification with the mom is pending…my brother (our family) desperately needs help.
