Children Kidjacked

May 16, 2012 in Child Protective Services, corruption, family court, Florida, investigation, Texas

My name is Tonya, and this is my story.

View of exterior of Forestdale, a foster care ...
Forestdale, a foster care agency in Queens, New York.

Fifteen months ago I was living in the state of new York with my children, Maddy, and Michael. I had to go to Texas to take care of some business and left my children in the care of the man we shared a house with.

One week after I was in Texas, my son called me and told me his sister and he had been thrown out into the snow. I called three local police there and asked them to pick up my children and take them to the airport where I would provide plane tickets for then to be returned to me in Houston.

The officer chose instead to take them into custody.  I was then charged with neglect and abandonment. Since then, they have drugged and institutionalized my son, and accused him of sexually abusing my daughter. She will not state that and misses her brother very much. I was told that they would have a psychiatrist say that my children could not live in the same home, and if I wanted my son I needed to sign away my rights to my daughter.

The foster parents want to adopt her. I have not signed anything. My son has been in a facility for a year, and due to lack of finances I have not seen my children since last July. I just recently discovered that there was help for me, and I am fighting with all my heart. I am attending school to get a degree in criminal justice so that I can help others. I am starting a group called Mothers Against CPS Corruption.

Thank you for hearing my story and giving me hope.

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.

Arizona Mom Needs Attorney

January 20, 2012 in Arizona, biological parents, family court, family rights

Hi. I need help. I was hoping that you would have some reputable attorneys who fight cps in the Phoenix Arizona area?

It’s been a year since I have seen my little boy who will be 7 years old next month. CPS took him away from me on July 4, 2009.

For a year in a half I did everything that CPS demanded of me. I took parenting classes, anger management classes, mental health classes. My visitations with my son went from 2 hours twice a week to 1 hour once a week.

My son is diagnosed with MMR, ADHD & ODD. He was placed in foster care but only until an adoptive placement took place. I have found out many of times the foster care family neglected my son’s health. When I notified my CPS case manager they didn’t do anything.

I am all alone with no family support. I don’t feel like I can trust just anybody anymore due to the fact I trusted my state and they conspired against us (my son and I).

I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. I think of my son every second of every day. I feel guilty because I allowed the state into our lives because I had nothing to hide and they straight up lied about me. I am a good mom. My son is my world!

When I did have supervised visits, my son never wanted to go back to his foster parents. He always wanted to come home with me. The psychologist hired by CPS said to the court that my son doesn’t think of me as an authoritive parent but just a playmate because I only wanted to make the hour I had with my son happy.

I feel like I have a strong case against CPS but I cannot afford an expensive attorney. Can you please help me find an attorney who will listen to my story and help me. I feel so alone.  My son is in a group home now. I am frightened for my son to be all alone in this big scary world at the tender age of 7 years old. I just want to protect him and give him the same opportunity every child has at becoming an successful, honest adult. I want him to know that I love him and will never give up on him.

I don’t use drugs and I have never been in trouble with the law before CPS wrongfully accused me of child abuse neglect.

Please, please help me.

Kinship care vs Fostering

October 15, 2011 in California, DCF, DCFS, DHS, family rights, foster parents, grandparents rights, Idaho, Michigan

I’ve had several people in the past few weeks tell me that they wish to care for their own family members – as opposed to having them placed in foster care, with strangers. These grandparents, aunts, uncles and other close relatives are being told they must become certified foster parents.

Advocating for Children in Foster and Kinship Care: A Guide to Getting the Best out of the System for Caregivers and Practitioners Federal law requires that state social workers attempt to find suitable placement for “at risk” children, who are removed from their home. In many cases the state is merely paying lip-service and doesn’t actually follow the law.

This is a violation of federal law and the state can lose their federal funding. You should always report such violations of federal law to your U.S. House Representation. Call and request an investigation. You will need to provide them with a legal release form, along with the facts and any supporting documents.

Just today the Idaho Press-Tribune ran an interesting article:

In Idaho, more grandparents still in parental role

Many grandparents who take in grandchildren qualify for a $300 Temporary Assistance for Needy Families grant. The amount is the same regardless of the number of children in a family.

Grandparents also can become certified as foster parents, and take in their own grandchildren through the state system. That means more financial support. Monthly foster payments per child in Idaho range from $274 to $431 based on age; payments increase if children have special needs. Foster children get Medicaid cards and other benefits.

But many families don’t want to do that, Perry said. Some bristle at the idea of giving the state that much control over their families, even temporarily.

“They feel taking care of their own family is their responsibility,” he said.

Tracee Crawford, one of the leaders of the Grandparents as Parents of the Treasure Valley, a Southwest Idaho support group, said grandparents sometimes hesitate to ask for help of any kind, afraid that if they make trouble, their children will take the grandchildren away.

Becoming a legal guardian, another option, comes with its own complications, including steep legal costs, said Crawford.

She became part of a kin-care family when her daughter had cancer. Crawford cared for her and her grandson until her daughter died. She’s been in long legal battles with her former son-in-law over visitation rights with her grandson.

“To become a legal guardian, you have to prove a parent — your child — is unfit,” she said. “That’s really hard to do” — factually and emotionally.

Each state is different, which makes it difficult to know exactly what the law is your own state.

In my own case, I was shocked to find that while I was getting monthly kinship care checks from the State of California of ($357 – back in 2002), at the same time, another relative had a sibling to my grandson. The only difference was that they lived in Michigan; her checks from the State of Michigan – $123.  I felt bad for her because this child has autism and even in Michigan $123. doesn’t go far.

Be sure you check into your own states law, make a few phone calls, talk to an attorney and check out a few state websites before you sign anything. The choice you make could make a big difference in just how much help you are entitled to.

On that note, let me just remind you that if you accept money from the state, you accept all the strings that go along with that money, but it’s better than starving — maybe. We didn’t like giving up so much of our privacy, so we stopped received state funds many years ago – as soon as we could stand on our own two feet.

Knowledge is Power! Exercise your brain.

Kenai Foster Care

August 16, 2009 in Alaska, child abuse, CPS, foster care

My Child Lives in Fear!

My son is in foster care due to some behavior with alcohol, while I was away at work and he was with his mother.

The foster parents drink in front of him and go out drinking on weekends and sometimes drive with my 17-year-old son in the vehicle.

I complained and nothing was done. The foster parents then moved my son in with their 25-year-old daughter, who drinks and smokes pot and has a one-year-old child of her own.

I complained but nothing was done about. I’m told they can drink. I followed them for about 2 months, they continue to partake of the bar scene, so, one night when they leave the bar I call the police.

Well they didn’t get a DWI but his probation office is now telling my son that she is going to violate his probation because I turned the foster parents in.

This is ALASKA FOSTER CARE in Kenai.
