Christmas Eve of 2011 I turned my head for a few seconds while my children were in the bath, my child started shaking and then stopped breathing after I had picked him up. After nearly four months went by CPS had decided that I neglected my children and that I am abused. I am not, we are not abused.
March 26th 2012, I was called into the CPS office. I was told it was to do a follow up to close the case. Upon arriving my children were separated from me and I was told I had 2 choices: 1 go to jail, loose my children or 2 go with my children to a safe home.
I signed an infomal disposition agreement in order to keep my children who I could hear crying through the walls. I didn’t know what the agreement meant or said, and I didn’t recieve a copy of it until a week later when I stopped in and demanded it. After this I was told that I could continue my relationship with their father so long as I did not disclose the location of my children.
April 13th 2012, a friend offered to watch the kids so I could go see Brandon. At our home late that night three officers showed up. I was arrested without reason.
That morning the investigator of my childrens case and whom I was told ordered our arrests came into my cell and asked me to disclose the location of my children. I was told they only needed to enusre their safety. I asked if they planned to remove my children, if that was why I was taken to jail. I was assured they only needed to ensure the children were safe.
A few hours later a social worker came in and informed me that my children had been taken into the custody of the state of Wisconsin.
I have not seen, talked to, or heard from my children since. Many other things have happened since then. Do you have any resources that may be of help to us?
Thank you for your time,
