DHS Destroys Family!

March 12, 2009 in Adoption, DHS, foster care, termination of parental rights, TPR

My child was hurt by someone who was babysitting while I was at work. This same person — that I trusted — shook my baby so hard that it gave him brain damage.

My children were all taken into custody. I have done nothing wrong and I am the one who is paying for his crime. My children have been taken by DHS and I have done everything that they have asked.

DHS Destroys Family!

I have completed every parenting class that there is to take, and still they made me sign over my rights. Then, since this happened to my son I have given birth to 2 other children and they removed them from the hospital. They wouldn’t even give me a chance with them.

How can they do that to someone who has done nothing wrong? They blame me for what happened and they just wont leave my kids and I alone. I have recently got married and they told me that as long as my kids have not yet been adopted my case would not be closed. And they will continue to take my children.

So, for the past 2 ½ years I’ve been fighting for my kids and they are still not going to give them back.

Where is the "innocent until tell proven guilty?" Where is the justice?

My children and myself will be paying for a crime that someone else committed for the rest of our lives. Our family has been destroyed by DHS.

What’s even worse is that the person that did this to my son is free! He is walking the streets of Silverton free to hurt someone else, he got out on a temporary insanity plea.

What kind of justice is that?

I would like to hear from anyone who has a lawsuit against DHS, can offer any help or information. I am almost out of time. Please someone, anyone that can help me, please respond to me. My kids are counting on me.

Visitation Questionnaire

October 17, 2008 in DHS, foster parents, Visitation

We are a foster family that is frustrated with DHS regarding visitation and we are considering offering to supervise visits to make it easier.

The mom made some mistakes regarding visitation at the beginning of the case, but seems to be doing better. It is so difficult to get visitation scheduled with DHS supervising that we think it would be easier to work directly with the mom. We would like feedback from bio parents.

  1. Would you prefer to have one of the foster parents supervise visit or would you prefer DHS?
  2. Would you want the foster parent to be silent unless redirection of conversation is necessary?
  3. Would you be willing to do things together with the foster family in order to make it more comfortable for the kids?
  4. What recommendations/concerns would you have as the bio family?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.

School Makes Me Sick!

October 9, 2008 in Arkansas, caseworker, DHS

Truancy in Arkansas

I have to tell you my case about horrible injustice, abuse, and discrimination, constitutional and civil rights violation being committed against my son and me by juvenile court in Arkansas.

I fear my son is in danger of being legally kidnapped by a corrupt juvenile court over immoral laws for truancy and sick days. The corruption includes fraud, abuse, and the legal kidnapping of children from loving parents. Please help! Our case went from truancy, to sick days, to forced therapy, to contempt then an accusation of neglect. My son and I desperately need your help and I pray you can help us.

This case is not about my son and me accused of abuse, drugs, alcohol, neglect or any past criminal record. We are innocent!

Here’s the story

My youngest son was bullied in the fall of 2006 by a new, first time third grade teacher and again by the principal who has never liked us. Sadly, the nuns left in 2002 and the school never recovered but I stayed out of loyalty since my family had gone there for over 40-years.

It once was a loving, wonderful, private, Catholic school. This principal was always cold and unfriendly towards us not acting at all like a Christian and he didn’t mind showing his hatred for us and the teacher acted the same.

My son was sent to the office everyday for behavior problems such as being the class clown. He usually got sent home or I would check him out so the principal wouldn’t torture him.

Child Bullied by School Officials

I believe the constant bullying by this principal and teacher made my son sick emotionally and physically. My son complained of headaches, stomach pains, nausea, sleep problems, often vomiting in the mornings, and sudden crying episodes.

Then, he made several suicidal comments about going back to school so I changed him to another school quietly; where he made the A & B honor roll and graduated to 4th grade. We were not the only family who changed schools because of this principal.

I know the principal was angry that we changed schools so he filed a truancy complaint at the prosecuting attorney’s office for my son’s absents even though we no longer went to that school. I tried to explain all this to the judge but all she cared about was the sick days missed, not the trauma and abuse my son had suffered from these adult bullies.

Juvenile Court

And our nightmare had just begun: We have been dragged through the juvenile court treated like criminals for almost 2 years now; more missed days of school for court, caseworkers monitoring us, doctor visits, appointments with the already biased, court-appointed psychologist, and threats of DHS taking my son because of sick days.

We had court for the fifth time on June 27th hoping to close the case but instead the judge threatens to throw me in the county jail after a court employee lies on the witness stand claiming I refused to get counseling and complains that my son missed 32.5 days of the school year.

I found out later that the lying employee was my son’s parole officer who has never met us or never talks to us. I found out later that she was supposed to have set up the free counseling for my son and me after the last hearing in January. She clearly didn’t do her job so she shifted the blame on me because one week after this hearing, I received an appointment with a social worker at United Family Services set up by this lying parole officer.

This seems kind of hypocritical for us to get counseling from a social worker at UFS since my son and I were evaluated there 2-years-ago by a social worker; but the judge did not value her opinion. The social worker that talked to us then felt that I had made the right decision in changing schools and my son had adjusted well with no lasting trauma caused by the bullying; so she recommended closing the case.

Traumatized by the court

Of course now the court is traumatizing my son. I tried to defend my son for the 32-½ absents telling her that 8 of those days were court related, which we were told was excused; but the judge slammed her gavel down in a rage threatening to throw me in jail and put my son in foster care which terrified my son.

The threat of foster care

She is ordering DHS again to reopen the case and monitor us again. My son and I haven’t committed any crime. The court resembles Hitler and his Nazis; and my son and I are the innocent but condemned Jews. They torture us by scaring my son with threats of foster care; and me with threats of throwing me in jail and taking my son with no charge of any crime.

We had court today September 25th for the sixth time and I was falsely accused of contempt of court. The judge didn’t like that I had gone to two extra therapists for their opinion and help in addition to the counseling at UFS.

I tried to explain to her that I was showing the court that I am cooperating and never refused therapy even paying $200 to one therapist but the judge hated me for this effort claiming that my thinking was messed up.

The court appointed defense lawyer who never talks to me and has never defended my son or me because she usually just sits there, got up and said she thinks that I am neglecting my son now since I have a job. Before I was discriminated against and treated like scum because I wasn’t working and now I am accused of neglect because I am working again.

My son told me later that the defense attorney told him that she didn’t like me stating to him "I don’t like your mom." I know it upset him and I don’t want her near my son again.

It was so horrible and sickening how corrupt and evil this court is and they’re getting away with it. My son and I are ordered to go to therapy every week till we go back to court in January or the judge will take my son from me for a 72 hour hold if she finds me in contempt of these court orders which she will unlawfully and get away with it.

I believe this court is so evil that they are deliberately making sure my son and I can’t get therapy this week so they can kidnap him. They will make it look like I am not following orders even though I have called asking for help.

No where to hide

I have been advised to go into hiding immediately to protect my son from being kidnapped and there is reason to believe an order for his kidnapping will be enforced any day while he is at school which has me terrified to send him to school; but he can’t miss school because we’ll be in trouble for sick days.

I had to take my son to the doctor on October 7th and he was put on an anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications. My son and I are so stressed by the horrible abuse from this court that it is making him sick. Help us!

At first, this case was about bullies, then it was about my son missing sick days and now they have twisted the case as if I am neglecting him. It keeps getting worse. Please! Someone Help Us!

We are being treated so unfair. I am really scared and confused because I have always believed being a loving, devoted mom, a good-hearted Christian and a law-abiding citizen that I would never be treated like a criminal. I was so wrong – there is no justice in America.

My son was only 9 years old when we first went to court, which means he wasn’t even old enough for juvenile court in Arkansas. We are being crucified for a truancy complaint from a school we no longer attended and sick days.

Civil Rights Violations

We haven’t committed any crimes. Don’t I have the right to keep my child home when he is sick? Aren’t we protected by the 8th Amendment? 1st Amendment? 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendments also? Please help!

Don’t my son and I have civil rights? What about our Miranda rights? Aren’t we protected by the Constitution? Why am I in trouble for saving my son from those bullies by changing schools? Didn’t the Supreme Court give parents the right to choose the best education for their children?

Don’t I have the right to protect my child from bullies? Don’t I have the right to protect my child from possible corruption in juvenile court? Isn’t it my responsibility to keep him safe from harm or danger? I pray for your help.

Please email me if you can help or know someone who could help. Thank you and God bless you!

Abusing the Abused

September 21, 2006 in DHS, domestic violence, foster care, neglect

I’m a mother who lost her children due to domestic abuse. I didn’t know it was going to happen, but it was my fault anyways according to D.H.S.

They made me sign over my parental rights of my 2 children who were 2 and 5 at the time or they would take my 7 year old and any other children I would have in the future.

I’m a good mom. I never hurt my children and they also noted that in their report. They say I put them in harms way, there for I was accused of neglect, because my ex-husband beat me one day.

What confuses me is why am I good enough for my other child though? There is a lot of stuff that D.H.S. did wrong but I couldn’t afford to hire anyone to help me.

They stole my children and I can’t seem to move on. Neither can my son and I can only imagine what my two little children must think and feel.

I’m writing to tell my story, however I can’t write it all cause there is too much to tell. I’d also like to talk to other families and maybe if it isn’t to late find a way to get my family back.
