Georgia CPS Kidnap Child – No Reason Given

November 13, 2012 in California, Child Protective Services, Georgia

My family and I just moved to Georgia less than 4 months ago due to our home burning down in California. We have three children 2 of them on college and a 12-year-old handicap child.

Since moving here, we have fought the school system for her basic federal right to an education. The school has violated her FAPE fights and her IDEA rights as well as harming her to the point were they called us to come pick her up.

We took her to the hospital. I signed a paper for her to have a 72-hour evaluation at which point Child Protective Services (CPS) came and took her before without notification or reason. It took us a week to find out where our child was and what had happen. When we asked as to why they had removed our little girl, they said it was not due to neglect or abuse yet refused to give us a reason. This freaked us out, so I called the police. I actually believed she had been kidnapped.

17 Helpful Tips on how to protect your family

They were no help, as you can imagine, once they found out CPS was involved. All rights educational, medical, and financial have been removed. They refused to allow us to appear in court for her. CPS withheld the location and time of her hearing. After 2+ weeks I was finally allowed a supervised visit, my child who immediately told me she had been spanked. She had what looked like a cigarette burn on her face and a large wound on her neck (3 inches long and 1 inch wide) – both wounds were fresh.

They refused to allow me to take pictures of her wounds. The caseworker only said, “We will look into it,” regarding the spankings she is receiving while in foster care.

When she left our care her skin was fresh, clean, dry and in good shape. The school had also mistreated her allowing her to become dirty and covered in food. I had asked them many times to respect her dignity over these matters and other issues. Yet she would come home from school crying daily for being punished at school because she would ask questions regarding her work.

The main reason I am writing is to obtain help. CPS has broken many laws in regards to our handicap child she has multiple handicaps and cannot speak well, but her mind is “normal” and she knows sign language fluently.

Neither CPS nor school has provided a translator to aid in communication for her. They have also failed to provide her vitally needed medical equipment, which was on loan to the school and never returned.

I know it doubtful this email will realistically get any help or results, but I just had to get this off my chest. Our family is in fear that they will kill her or do great bodily harm, not knowing her intense medical needs.

They actually sent her home to die as an infant. We had told them we wouldn’t allow that to happen, if at all in our power. She is now 12 going on 13. She is very smart and has over come just about all her complex medical issues. She can walk, run, play, learn, sing – she loves to sing (even though most of which is unintelligible) to the common person. Her favorite band is Big Time Rush, which is age appropriate (and cute) anyway.

Shealynn is our joy, our reason for living our life. She has never been abused in any form at home. The fact that I cannot protect her now rips my heart out. A hole has been, ripped through our souls by an entity, which seems too big for us to battle, but we will give it our all – although I am doubtful of winning. I feel it in my heart, that feeling a mom gets when something’s wrong with her child, its magnified by 20,0000.

DFCS, ‘Your Daddy is in Jail.’

July 21, 2010 in DFCS, Georgia

I am not really sure where to begin, but here in Murray county (northwest Georgia) you don’t really need evidence to take a child away and convict a person, you just need some kids (who have made false allegations before) to make allegations, and ignorant people to listen to them.

My Daddy's in Jail?

They came up with a plan; even wrote a note telling one of the others what to say, at a child advocacy center with paper thin walls, so that each child can hear what the child before them said. (Yes, this was recorded at lovely Green House CAC) by a vindictive family that knows its way around the system (they have always been in it).

My husband and I have been caring for 6 children for several years now. He and his ex-wife had 4, one passed away shortly after birth, and it drove the mother to a life of alcohol and drugs. The mothers family only mad attempts to be involved in the family when they benefited from it, like at tax time and stuff like that.

Well, we also had one child of our own and two nieces, which were placed with us under the Kinship care program. We moved here from Columbus, GA to keep them from seeing how their mother was killing herself, and to keep them from the gang life. We left the youngest of his older three with the mother because the mother would do anything for her, that is where she wanted to be and we did not want to force her.

A few months after moving, we received a phone call from the mother; a very vulgar phone call about how this 9-year-old girl was a lying whore, she had told DFCS that a friend’s stepfather had raped her and her friend; well it turned out to be a plot to live in a foster home together.

We immediately drove down to pick her up; the mother had been spending weekends in jail and the child was home alone, free to run around in an undesirable neighborhood with no supervision. None of the children liked living here, they said that there were too many “Hicks” here and everyone was unintelligent. These children were very smart; loved to read my college textbooks and always asked if I would copy any homework pages so they could attempt to complete the assignment.

I never stopped my children from excelling (yes I say my children, I raised them for 6 years).

When we would not allow them to stay with their mom they decided to call The Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) with the same allegations that the youngest of the three had used before, and it worked. I have lost my little girl, and now my nieces are going through the adoption process, to be forever removed from our family and heritage.

This is what our tax money does for us! My baby keeps asking if her daddy is in jail, or dead, and all I permitted to say is, “Baby, your daddy loves you.” I am monitored at all times, because they think I am going to tell my 4 year old something. They have her convinced that Daddy is in Jail! My husband is safe and at home with me, fighting for his little girl.

With one last note, custody of his three eldest was awarded to their mother’s mother, but she doesn’t have them, their mother does.

A Soldiers Battle

May 22, 2010 in DCFS, False Allegations, Georgia

An American soldier who is nine (9) months pregnant with her second child attempts to defend herself against a physical attack from her angry boyfriend in the presence of her eight-year-old daughter.

A Soldier's Battle

During this attempt the soldier frantically searches her purse for her cell phone to contact 911. She cannot seem to locate the phone so she pulls her weapon, to scare off the angry boyfriend.  In a frenzied state of shock, the soldier attempts to ensure that the weapon is on safe causing the weapon to go off in the opposite direction. 

The soldier tells the boyfriend that she cannot continue to do this with him; that she wants to end the relationship; and that she was taking her daughter and unborn son away from him and the tumultuous relationship. The boyfriend, out of anger and fear of not being able to see his son, takes the weapon from the soldier, calls 911 and reports that his girlfriend just came to his apartment in an angry rage and shot up his apartment. 

To add insult to injury, the boyfriend falsely reported to police, upon their arrival, that the soldier had anger and mental issues. He also stated that this soldier almost shot her own daughter. This soldier was charged with a cruelty to children charge among other charges and arrested. The cruelty to children charge was later dropped less than a month later. 

However, due to the initial incident, this soldier’s daughter was taken into DFCS custody. Upon her refusal to give her unborn son at the hospital into DFCS custody, both this soldier’s children were placed into foster care. 

This soldier was never given the opportunity to bond with her son (who was taken at the hospital). Later the court granted temporary custody of this soldier’s son to the boyfriend in exchange for his testimony against the soldier – where he had earlier testified for the soldier  that his initial statement to the police was out of anger, but because DFCS initially refused to give him custody he later, at another hearing changed his testimony. 

The judge who handled this matter (Who was DFCS’s previous SAAG attorney) also ordered that the soldier have no contact with the child while he was in the custody of the boyfriend. 

Now this soldier is no longer able to see her own son.  The courts are also pushing for termination of this soldier’s parental rights to her daughter and refusing to give daughter to family members as they have persistently requested. 

In addition, this soldier’s constitutional rights were violated and she was threatened that she will never see her children again if she did not sign certain documents, keep her mouth shut, and stop filing complaints. The soldier was coerced to comply.

Soldier gets tanked

Meanwhile, her daughter’s desires and request were blatantly being ignored in the name of looking out for the best interest of the child.  The daughter is dealing with anxiety and depression from being separated from her mother (the soldier) and being refused treatment by state workers, she has been moved and placed into four different foster care homes- two of those moves were due to physical and emotional abuse by the foster care provider.

Instead of this soldier receiving the support that she need from her Chain of Command, this soldier was alienated, defamed, and shown no loyalty from those with whom she served. After constant malicious accusations, false reports of behavior, and unauthorized contact (protected under privacy act) with the military, the Department of Family and Children Service successfully ended this soldiers military career of almost 14 years of unquestionable service.

This soldier was separated without proper medical treatment for depression arising from the previously mentioned events. This veteran is still fighting to regain custody of her children while continuing to try to maintain resources for treatment of depression. 

Similar incidents are happening in the lives of families across the country.  But it seems the court system which once protected and advocated for families are instead advocating for Parental Alienation and Deprivation of Familial Companionship. 

The soldier who once fought and laid her life on the line to protect the Constitutional rights of every citizen of this country now has no one to protect her own Constitutional rights.

The government, which once upheld the Constitution that gave parents the right to raise their children without any interference now disregards that right and has given state officials more rights than the parents.  The laws, which were developed, to protect the victim in domestic violence now protect the perpetrator.

I feel the agony and grief of this once soldier, because I was that soldier. This happened to me.  I am a victim of domestic violence.  My daughter is in foster care and I am no longer able to see my own son.  I have all court documents, sworn statements, voice recordings, formal complaints and eyewitness accounts and will provide upon request to support that this is not just a dramatized story of exaggerated events but a real life account of a situation that seems never-ending.

Hardened Criminal

Hardened Criminal - Outside in Underware

In Dec. 2006, DCFS came to my house with a bogus report (again). They had a report that my 4-year-old was outside in his underwear.

I did exactly what I learned to do. I politely asked for her warrant, she did not have one. She was adamant about coming in my home. I politely told her that when she returns with a warrant then I would gladly allow her into my home.

Then the cop said that they don’t need a warrant. I explained the same to him. She then told me that she is getting a pick up order because I wouldn’t allow her in. The cop explained to me that she is taking my kids because I refused to allow her into my house. She only wanted to talk to my kids.

I then allowed her to talk to my kids outside. My kids would not speak. They got scared from the CPS workers hounding them with questions and started crying. I got fed up and grabbed my kids and told them to leave. She replied and said she needed to take them away from me and interview them. I refused and told her to get a warrant, turned and went back in my house and closed my door.

She returned about 20-minutes later with a pick up order to take all my kids. Including my oldest son who was at wrestling practice at the time.

In court the next day, the CPS worker stated that I bumped her while I was holding my baby and they charged me with assault. Since my 4-year-old son was outside in his underwear they charged me with 4 counts of contributing to delinquency of a minor, (1 for each child). I am also being charged with obstruction to an officer. I have yet to go to trial for these charges.

I do not know what I need to do. Do I press charges against these police officers? Does her having a pick up order give them a right to come in my home without a warrant?

If you know of anyone that can help me, please give him or her my telephone number (229) 424-7642.

Thank you and God Bless.

PS. I did contact head of DHR in Atlanta the next day and I did get my kids back after being in foster care for 9-days. CPS has since closed the case and I have not heard form them since (covering their asses, I know). I still have 6-charges pending against me.

Oconee County, GA

September 18, 2006 in CPS, DFCS, foster care, Georgia

Hi my name is Brandy and I want to warn all parents away from Oconee County, Georgia.

I’ve lived in many counties and struggled all my life but I had my babies with me and we were happy. Oconee County DFCS has destroyed my life almost completely and if they have their way they will finish me off.

They have my 3 beautiful daughters in their custody now because of social drug use. My little girls have been so traumatized since they came into our lives. When they took them from me they went to the school and picked them up…without me being able to tell them I love them, or why these were strangers taking them away or anything.

How was that in the best interest of my babies??

My children have never been left with strangers in their entire lives, not even with a sitter. I can only imagine how scary that must have been for them. I only get to see them 1-hour a week so there is not much time to talk about things.

I wish I could just lie in the bed and hold them and tell them everything is going to be ok. I can’t afford a lawyer and things don’t look so good. But I got off course there.

Out of all the counties I’ve lived in I’ve never seen any as bad as this one. Everyone I know with children in this county is going through something with these heartless cps workers. I tell everyone because I wish someone had told me.

Had I known, I would have moved into a box before I moving to this county.
