Diabetic Needs Help

February 21, 2012 in Child Protective Services, Pennsylvania

Hold on to your kids: Why parents need to matter more than peers

My name is Edward Bogan (and my wife Kimberly) here is my story, please find time to read this. WE NEED HELP.

BCCYS illegally took my children Monday afternoon from there home.  BCCYS Took my children Monday 2/13/2012 @ 1:30pm

The big guy in the videos is Eds case worker thru BCCYS (The blonde hair girl is Noelle and she works for him) Greg the case worker came to the house Monday morning when Ed told him not to because it was his birthday and Ed told him to come Tuesday. But he showed up unannounced on Monday when Ed was in the basement with the kids.

Ed didn’t hear him knocking, but Greg heard the tv in the living room on and assumed they were home. He called the police, the police had maintenace open the door. When Ed heard someone walking around upstairs he came up and found 2 police officers standing there. Ed freaked out. The police said that Greg heard the tv on and they wanted to check the kids to make sure they were alright. So Ed let the police check the kids but told Greg that he wasnt allowed in because of what he had just pulled.

To have police in his house with 4 little kids scared was too extreme and there was no need for it. So Greg took that as Ed not complying with him or BCCYS any longer so he came back 3 hours later and took the children. Hence the videos that were posted on youtube and facebook.

My 8 yr old little girl, Hailey is a type 1 diabetic who receives at least 5 shots a day. They took her from her home without getting any of her medications. When I found this out I made some phone calls and found out where and who to deliver it to. Since then my oldest daughter Katelynn who is 11 has been calling us and informing us of Haileys medical conditions.

BCCYS Placed my child in a home WITH NO MEDICAL TRAINING OR KNOWLEDGE IN DIABETES. They did not know how to give her the shots, nor her regimen (how much she should eat at each meal, how many carbs, how often she should eat, and when to administer the shots, nor the locations of where to give the shots). When she began to become really sick Alyssa my 9 yr old stepped up to the plate and started giving Hailey her shots. But regardless, other steps weren’t taken and Haileys blood sugar numbers have gone crazy.

I got a call from my kids Tuesday morning saying how sick Hailey was with a bad belly ache, and a headache, and she felt really tired. (Which are signs of ketone acidosis … which happens when a diabetic eats too much and doesnt recieve enough insulin.)

I have been calling around nonstop since then trying to find out answers of why they took our child and placed her with foster parents that cant take care of her medical needs. When I spoke to Greg and Michele (Gregs supervisor) they said they were concerned for Haileys health but they had nowhere else to place her and that they would eventually get the foster mother some beginners training classes in diabetic awareness.

When the childrens case worker “Mr. Ed” they call him found out Alyssa had been giving her sister the shots he threatened her and yelled at her not to tell her parents. And after I spoke with Michele and Greg and told them how unhappy I was at their poor decisions in caring for and treating my daughters medical needs a few hours later they took my daughters cell phone from her to eliminate all contact.

My daughter called us screaming saying they were taking her phone, and she screams “get off me!!” just before the phone hangs up…. and that was the last we heard from our children.

THEY ARE PUTTING MY DAUGHTERS LIFE AT RISK!!! And no one is listening to me. I need help before something terrible happens to her.

Katelynn and Hailey have learning disabilities and are suppose to go to an afterschool reading program to help them. Since they were taken they have NOT attended. And because they don’t have adequate transporation for all the kids, they take the 3 girls to school and then they bring my son. Who has been late to school this week because of it.

How can CYS take children from a home that has no allegations of abuse or neglect and place them in a foster home that is not meeting there required medical and educational needs??!!

Please help our family. Something is seriously wrong with this system and children are being hurt in the process.

Proof of Innocence?

February 3, 2011 in DHS, due process, false accusation, family court, Pennsylvania

Love your website. Thank you so much for sharing it with those of us who have been raped by the system. Although, I am so sorry and upset that it is even an issue in this country!

I thought I would share a little bit of my story with you.

First, I have a friend who is a social worker who was helping me the moments before CPS came to my door. She told me to let them in or they will get a warrant and that it looks guilty if I don’t. So I let them in.

I let them interview my children. The worker interviewed my two older children together. My 8-year-old generally tells the truth, unless my bossy 11-year-old is around to sway her. My mother was the one who reported me. My 11-year-old went along with the story that my mother cooked up because she really wanted to live with my mom because she “buys her things” (this she said later in front of a CPS-paid counselor). Also, I think it’s important to note that I have cut all ties with my mom since this incident in August.

Anyway, when the CPS worker then came from her interview with the kids and asked me what happened, I told her the truth, to which she replied, “Well, I always believe the kids.”

Then why ask for my side? They wanted to kick me out of my house for seven days. I refused to sign any papers until morning when an attorney could look them over but agreed to leave my home anyway.

The worker then threatened to remove my children and put them in foster care if I did not sign the papers. They were not an admission of guilt, but an agreement to leave. I did not know that at the time, but I felt like I was signing under duress and couldn’t think clearly to even know what I was signing. It was awful. I was even breastfeeding at the time but they didn’t care.

They ended up opening a case for 90-days. Two social workers, a parenting coach and a counselor, were hired by CPS from an outside agency to come into my home three times per week. They also forced me to put my two year old son into daycare for the first time in his life. I am a stay-at-home mom so this was very traumatic for him.

They also had a counselor from an outside counseling agency come into my home to see the children once a week. After the counselors and social workers came into my home, they told me that I am a great mom, that my family situation is not one that they would typically be called to, and that they have reported only good things to CPS.

After complaints from my friends to CPS and my lawyer to the prosecutor about the initial case worker who illegally forced me to sign papers, they moved my case worker to another county. I got a new case worker who was, thankfully, much more intelligent. But it was too late. They already decided to substantiate “hitting” and “psychological and emotional abuse.”

I am appealing this decision. I have a hearing in about two weeks. I still have my attorney, which I have spent $1,000 to retain for this whole ordeal. Hopefully, it will be done soon because I don’t have very much money left. I am not sure how to defend myself and prove my innocence because to those who don’t know me and my family personally, it looks like I am simply pointing the finger at my mom for the blame and not taking any responsibility. But it is the truth!

I have some questions that I would like to pose to you because I have been researching, but I can’t find any information about. Firstly, how can they take an anonymous phone call from someone and not allow you to address your accuser, as a rapist or attempted murderer would be allowed to do? How is that legal?

Secondly, how are the infamous CPS state lists, going by various names from state to state, legal? The people who’s names are on the lists are guilty until proven innocent, which is the complete opposite of what our legal system is supposed to be. These lists are a collection of opinions not necessarily based on fact or evidence. Furthermore, they share this information with employers, but confess that all information regarding our cases are confidential because it’s a juvenile matter. That is contradictory and confusing.

I am just so torn up about this and I wish I had a million dollars because I would be the one who goes to the Supreme Court about outlawing those lists and confidential tips.

Thanks again for all you are doing,
Kim,

PA: Help Needed

April 9, 2007 in child abuse, foster care, Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Office of Children Youth and Families (OCYF), are out of control. They are removing children from loving, caring families and letting the real child abusers keep their children. My children were taken over 20 months ago, we have done everything CYS has asked for and are not even close to having our children returned.

Can anybody help? I don’t know what else to do to save my family.
