First, I'll state that the only reason for this report is to get TRUE facts recorded about the activities of the Child Protective Services Division (CPS) of the Department of Human Services (DHS). The reporter apologizes for the length of this report knowing that THE TRUTH NEEDS TO BE REVEALED AND ACTION TAKEN TO CLOSE CPS! Read on ...

CPS has severely abused and neglected two young children that they took into custody as a result of their being sexually assaulted by bigger students on a public school bus. The bus driver just kept on driving, ignoring her responsibility to protect the children while in her care. She permitted the bigger kids to sexually assault the little kids.

A few days later, after the assault was reported, several school officials unendingly questioned the children and ultimately frightened one child into making confusing statements about the assault. School officials, fully aware of the sexual assault, grossly mishandled the information they had in their possession.

The assaulting, abusive bullies were reportedly disciplined by not being permitted to ride the school bus for a short period of time. The individuals who suffered the greatest from the sexual assault are the two young children, one a kindergartner and the other a beginning third grade student. It's difficult to understand why the assaulting students have ultimately been REWARDED while the younger children have suffered horribly, with one lawyer reporting to the judge that CPS had destroyed them.

FACTS that relate to this case: CPS tells in their secretive KIDS Files that two fictitious witnesses knew the family very well. Family members have no idea who those two individuals are. Names, addresses and telephone numbers are all fictitious. Who told those two people to call CPS about the parents. They'll never tell because it is just a fabricated story.

This case has been intermingled with a Kiowa Indian case and a case where the parents had three additional siblings. Not one relative knows the identity of the other three children and neither DHS or anyone involved in the case can provide the names, address or any identification for the three siblings. Of course, if that information WAS given to CPS, the person didn't even know the family members. That information was evidently fabricated also. However, it is believed that IF the report was given to CPS, the person reporting the lie has left the community. Good thing! I'd be so ashamed I wouldn't want my face seen in the community again either! Too many people know the information is a full blown lie.

Usually the CPS worker recommends that the parents complete a Parents Assistance Course but that was denied in favor of adoption to strangers. Denying the parents of attending PAC is a suggestion that the PAC program is not of much value to anyone participating in the program. Strange that CPS does not even think their own programs are worthwhile!

The CPS worker refused to follow the juvenile judge's order for relatives to visit the foster parents. The newly assigned CPS worker instructed the family member to NOT contact the foster parents until CPS had visited with them. Three weeks later, CPS told family member that the foster parents "felt too uncomfortable" to visit the family member. Why would such a report be given unless CPS made threats to the foster parents?

Family members left school supplies with the CPS worker but foster parents are too frightened to notify family members of their receipt. Family member left voice message on telephone recorder, DURING SCHOOL HOURS, asking if the school supplies were sufficient and expressing a desire to furnish any other supplies they need so they would have the BEST. Foster parent played the voice recording of the family member so the children would be upset from hearing the voice. CPS and their counselor then TOLD the judge to NOT allow any visits or communication.

The family member who had tried to protect the children from an abusive parent, applied for adoption but because of the lies in the CPS KIDS File, was denied the opportunity to adopt the children. That family member not only held a BS degree in education but had served as a substitute teacher in two separate schools. The foster parents had NO children and no college training but were deemed BEST for the children. Very strange!

CPS reported in their KIDS File that one of the children "was having severe abdominal pain but when he was given the medicine, he was OK." THEY HAD THE PRESCRIBED MEDICATION BUT REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH WARNINGS GIVEN ON THE MEDICATION AND BY FAMILY MEMBERS FAMILIAR WITH REACTIONS! The family wonders why the child was taken off of the medication that caused the stomach disorder. Home school did not want him taken off of the medication and even encouraged the private physician to increase the dosage, knowing it resulted in great discomfort. Laws changed so foster parents can refuse to comply with the family doctor's recommendation.

Soon after the children were taken into custody, CPS was told to find someone who was familiar with the children to go with them to the CPS contracted physician. Guess who they sent with the children. They sent the case worker who reported that the child had severe stomach discomfort and would NOT consider one word the family told her about the medication.

It is evident now, that CPS has instructed the foster parents to take the child to one of their contract physicians who they knew would be willing to use an alternative medication that could reduce the pain caused by the stomach disorder.

The children are reportedly doing "wonderful" since they've been adopted. However, one child is not emotionally able to attend regular classroom activities because he knows he has been lied to and tricked. The other child is in special education because of birth defects.

Both children are NOW very emotionally disabled and receiving Medicare for those disabilities. It should be noted that every child is immediately emotionally handicapped once CPS has removed them from their loved ones.

The Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 (ASFA) has rewarded CPS over $10,000 per child for the damage they've done to these two children. That's in addition to the salaries the ASFA has paid and approximately $100,000 they have paid to the foster parents. The adoptive parents will receive approximately $1,000 each month as suppliment to help them with the children's disabilities. Counselors, psychologists, lawyers, special education teachers and now even home schooling supplies are completely paid for through the rewards and bonuses of ASFA.

The ASFA provides for awards and bonuses to DHS for every child they can manage to take into custody, place in foster care and ultimately adopt them to people outside the family. THE ASFA SHOULD NOT PROVIDE AWARDS AND BONUSES THAT ULTIMATELY SUPPORTS DHS'S CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT ACTIVITIES IN THE PRETEXT OF "WHAT'S BEST FOR THE CHILDREN."

Check the records! Adoption workers and MILLIONS OF CONTRACTORS are being paid rewards and bonuses for what they can do to further injure and damage little children. It's a well known fact that contractors are fearful that they will lose their contract with DHS if they don't follow every recommendation DHS makes. Many very affluent contractors are willing to abide by the false information CPS maintains in their KIDS files to gain monetary rewards and bonuses.

CPS Home Study Contractor was given information from CPS that relatives KNEW how the children's bones had been broken. If bones were broken, they were broken while in the foster home. Sure enough, upon asking the dates, the Home Study contractor found it was while the children were under the 'protective' custody of CPS.

Grievances were mailed to OKDHS reporting abuse and neglect. One Certified Letter reportedly never arrived at OKDHS. Family members believes that DHS saw who the Certified Letter was from and immediately dropped it in their 'round file' so they could report it had not been received. VERY STRANGE! Since the return receipt was not signed and returned through the postal services, the post office says "the letter may never be found." DHS employees KNOW the tricks!

CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES DIVISION OF OKDHS NEEDS TO BE CLOSED DOWN IN FAVOR OF THE JUVENILE JUDGES LEARNING FULL TRUTHS ABOUT THE CHILDREN AND VERIFYING THAT THE CHILD IS REALLY RECEIVING WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CHILD (NOT FOR DHS).

U.S. citizens need to read the reports that DHS has in their secret KIDS files. As in this case, they will likely find that much of the information contained in the KIDS FILE is fictitious and full blown lies. Legislation needs to be approved that will force DHS employees to tell the truth and record ONLY truths in their KIDS files and other records.

CPS reported that a family member visited one of the children in the new school but they CANNOT find a date of that event BECAUSE IT IS ANOTHER FULL BLOWN LIE TOLD TO THE JUDGE TO TAKE MORE OFFENSE AGAINST THE FAMILY.

CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES DO NOT NEED TO BE TORTURED BY THE CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES of DHS! PLEASE HELP CLOSE CPS DOWN! Find what is actually in the BEST INTEREST OF CHILDREN instead of what is in the best interest of CPS and DHS! Vote for judges who love children and want what is truly best for the children instead of judges who want SS and Medicare robbed because of lying CPS workers.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU'RE ON THE CPS TEAM (EMPLOYEE OR CONTRACTOR), YOU'LL TAKE OFFENSE AT THIS REPORT. CPS EMPLOYEES AND THEIR CONTRACTORS KNOW THESE STATEMENTS ARE TRUE!

BE ASSURED THAT IT IS A FACT THAT SOME CPS EMPLOYEES ARE NOT LIARS BUT THIS CASE REVEALS SEVERAL WHO ARE VERY EXPERIENCED LIARS.

CPS EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR STATEMENTS AND PROVIDE PROOF OF THEIR FACTS. THERE IS NO WAY THAT CPS CAN PROVE THEIR STATEMENTS. WHEN WILL THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WAKE UP AND STOP THIS DESTRUCTIVE ORGANIZATION BENT ONLY TO PERMANENTLY DISABLE LITTLE CHILDREN SO THEY CAN RECEIVE THEIR REWARDS AND BONUSES.

AGAIN, sorry this is so long but the facts needed to be revealed.

It's all just simple facts, Peter... Pony from Alabama

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Peter, the most recent FACTS are that when a child is taken into CPS custody, nobody is to know the child's name. It's confidential. The parent is not supposed to tell his/her child was taken into custody or why. What is a parent to say when someone asks where their child is? Are they to say, "I don't know! Have you seen him/her?" Of course if the parent answers such, they can be reported as a NEGLECTFUL parent. Where does this end?

It seems to me that if we're not allowed to tell anyone that our child was taken into DHS/CPS custody or why, it's crossing the barriors of our Freedom of Speech, our Constitutional Rights.

Currently, there's an appeal with the Superior Court of our state against Judge Hammond who ordered that I cannot put the names of these children on an e-mail to my friends or legislators working on the Kelsey Briggs OKDHS Reform Committee. She's even hired a lawyer to fight FOR her order.

Peter ... Pony, how can a juvenile judge over-rule the contents of the Constitution of the United States? The judge is VERY MAD because the Supreme Court Justice ordered her recused from the case when she was found talking to witnesses about the case BEFORE they had an opportunity to testify. The Supreme Court Justice ORDERED her recused from the case in 2002. That order must have meant zilch because she signed the final adoption papers on the children in 2004 while another judge had the case in his courtroom.

That judge is STILL on the case today, five years later! Is she above the laws of the Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma AND above the laws of the Constitution of the United States?

She's also the judge who ordered a representative from the Kiowa Tribe to be in the courtroom before she could begin the case. We had to hire a lawyer to help us prove we were NOT Kiowa Indian. SHE had combined this case with that of a Kiowa Indian drug case. We told her we weren't Kiowa Indian. Our lawyer told her we weren't Kiowa Indian. She would NOT believe any of us. Finally, our lawyer said, "Your Honor, you need to look at your file. These people say they are NOT Kiowa Indian! Something is wrong." Then, she started flipping sheets from her case file in several directions. She's been MAD since then. Most important, she was ordered RECUSED from the case but remains on the case today! WHY won't she follow the orders given by the Supreme Court Justice?

#2 Consumer Suggestion

RESCIND THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Please contact your legislators. The phone number to contact YOUR legislator is 1-866-220-0044. Once your legislator is on the line, ask them to rescind the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. It's likely that they don't even know about the ASFA. Ask them to READ the ASFA. Tell them that if the ASFA is rescinded, it will SAVE children and SAVE our Social Security Fund.

There's no need for President Bush to recommend changes to the Social Security Fund. Just simply rescind the ASFA. That's ALL that's needed!

EVERY child is "emotionally handicapped"?? Right ...

AUTHOR: Peter - (U.S.A.)

"Every child is emotionally handicapped when taken by CPS"??? Really?? I'd think that they'd become "emotionally handicapped" (if there is such a condition) when in their homes, being neglected, abused, and uncared for/unloved. CPS is designed to remedy the children's environment and place them with families headed by responsible adults who care properly for them.

To the OP ... you certainly have many issues at hand here, and numerous opinions and generalizations to boot. May I suggest that you deal with your own issues before attempting to deal with others'.

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Oklahoma Legislators Voted to GIVE OKDHS Funds to Hire 100 MORE CPS employees?

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

ONE HUNDRED M-O-R-E caseworkers will enable DHS's Child Protection Services to damage thousands more of our Oklahoma children. It IS all about money! If it isn't all about money, why did the Oklahoma legislature give Oklahoma DHS/CPS money to hire 100 more workers.

When the judge TOLD our DHS caseworker to send the case to reunification, it was NOT done. Oh, they sent an adoption worker to my home to see if they could be returned to my home. He was not able to find a reason to NOT return the children to my home.

Then, OKDHS hired a contractor to make a home visit my home. The contractor's only desire was to find a way to please the contractor so they could keep the children in custody. The contractor was paid big bucks to visit my ome to find some reason NOT to return the children.

That caseworker, Ms. Hill-Myers told me that my grandchildren's bones had been broken and that DHS said I knew all about how they were broken. She said their bones were broken sometime between January and March 2002. That was during the time the children were living in TWO separate foster homes. All of my visits were stopped in 2001 because I TOLD my grandson why he couldn't find the kids "who got him into trouble on the school bus."

Reunification is a joke in Oklahoma! OKDHS caseworkers arrange to intentionally damage EVERY child so they can be placed them on Medicare. They act like they're trying to reunify the family. Our children need help but they DON'T need the help from Oklahoma DHS/CPS. It doesn't make sense to yank a child out of the home and then make 'attempts' to reunify the family after they've permanently damaged all of them.

Shon, did OKDHS or the judge make even ONE attempt to have your foster child GENTLY reunited with the father and his siblings? NO! They just delivered the child to the father and expected him to handle the situation. How inhumane! That's their way to find a reason to take him back into custody!

Why didn't the caseworker help the father and all the children adapt to the new resident? It would have meant that TWO Oklahoma counties would need to work out a plan. They can't do that! The system needs massive repairs.

There are even interstate agreements to help children be placed with biological family members in another state. However, that's not done because it would mean MONEY would need to be sent from Oklahoma to the other state and the other state would have to have workers visit the home using funds given them from Oklahoma. They can't stand not being in complete control of the money sent out of state. So, instead, they place the child in a home that knows NOTHING about the family except what the DHS worker tells them. The foster home THINKS the DHS worker is being truthful but that's NOT true. DHS AGENTS FABRICATE TALES to justify them keeping the child in custody.

Remember, they co-mingled 3-5 other cases with our case. First, we had to prove we weren't full-blood Kiowa Indian. Then, we found their bones were broken ... another case where children who had fragile bone disease were taken into custody and the DHS worker refused to believe the private physician. The mother's report is above.

I'll never forget the Oklahoma County Juvenile Judge asking one OKDHS worker, "Are the parents STILL living together?" Reunification? That's not reunification! Why have contractors teach Parenting Assistance Classes if the ultimate goal is to have the parents divorce? It makes absolutely no sense! Oh, the caseworker's reply was, "Yes, your Honor, the parents are STILL living together." The foster parents were there with the infant and 4-year old girl. The parents had evidently been ordered to get a divorce.

Divorce is THE UNTIMATE answer according to DHS workers and juvenile judges. Divorces give lawyers more money through family court actions. Divorces give DHS more money when they collect child support from the parent and keep part of it for their services.

It's just like our case! My son called OKDHS caseworker Giwa about parenting classes. Ms. Giwa said, "We don't have parenting classes. You need to move out of the house, take your children with you and get a divorce OR you'll be charged with depriving your children." He wanted help! He didn't want a divorce! These parents evidently needed or wanted help. They must not have wanted a divorce. It's no wonder Oklahoma's divorce rate has skyrocketed since the 1990's.

Private family therapists and counselors are afraid to testify FOR their private client. They're afraid that their primary financial resource will be cut off if they take the side of the family. They get paid BIG BUCKS when they take a case sent them by the DHS agency.

My son moved his children to my house so he'd have more time to get some help for their mother. I'll never forget my grandson saying, "Grandma, why don't you marry my daddy? You love us!" His statement broke my heart. I replied, "Oh, Honey, your mother loves you. She just needs some help to know how to show it." That's what my son was trying to do. She needed help! He tried to help her. The juvenile judge even said, "It looks like OKDHS has failed this family!" Sure nuff! He's correct! They've destroyed the family and permanently damaged both children! The workers didn't FAIL their agency! It IS all about money!

Shon, I'm sorry you don't get to visit the child you had for so long. Maybe instead of reporting the abuse yourself, you should have told the child to show his teacher the bruises. Why didn't the teacher see the bruises that you saw? They're mandated to report suspicions of abuse or neglect!

In the first place, Shon, it's very difficult for a child who has been in foster care for so long to FIT back into the home after being away for such a long time. There had to have been a lot of jealousy between the siblings. Why didn't the caseworker recommend parenting assistance? Why didn't the caseworker send all members of the family to reunification counseling? The only intent of the DHS caseworker is to further damage the child! It's ALL in the interest of what is BEST for the DHS agency. NEVER in the interest of what is BEST for the child!

Hopefully, the Kelsey Briggs OKDHS Reform Committee will learn about these problems and try to write laws to HELP children and families. However, by the time OKDHS finishes writing their "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO DHS EMPLOYEES" the law will be insignificant. Our Oklahoma Legislators need to READ the "Special Instructions to DHS EMPLOYEES" so they'll know how the laws are complied with.

By the way, Shon, I am a former foster parent, too. I'm not a foster parent NOW because the foster parent contractor I worked with required me to be married. I was widowed in 1987. That's why I went to work for OKDHS. I worked for OKDHS from 1989 - 1995.

My foster children lived with me from the time they were 6 and 7 years old until they were 11 and 12 years old. They BOTH STILL call me MOM. We treated them so much like OUR children that when I had the gravemarker made for my deceased husband, I put their names on it as OUR foster children.

When we were asked if we wanted to adopt them, we said, "Sure! If nobody in the family wants them, WE SURE DO!" Their dad was released from prison and worked the plan to get his children returned. They were afraid at first but I told them that they were always welcome to come back or call us. They even left some of their things with us. They hadn't lived with their dad in more than ten years.

I'll never forget what the caseworker told the children. She said, "Always remember that your dad is your dad. Give him that respect. However, you don't have to respect the things he's done." That separated the act from the actor so the kids could adapt to the environment better.

They had been told that their mother was dead. Once they were returned to their father, they learned that their mother and even another sibling were very much alive. Members of the family helped them go to North Carolina to visit their biological mother AND their younger sibling. DHS didn't help them find their mother or their full-blood biological brother. Reunification! NEVER!

It reminds me of the lady from Harrah, Oklahoma who finally found her baby sister. The baby sister had been adopted to a family in Texas and had been told she had no living relatives. LIARS! The three siblings were finally reunitied about a year ago through the efforts of the older sister. OKDHS didn't help them re-unite! The baby sister finally found out what REALLY happened to cause her to be adopted. DHS caseworkers seldom or NEVER tell the truth to a child! The older sister helped a friend search adoption records for a baby whose birthdate was the same as her baby sisters. That's how she found her baby sister.

Come on Oklahoma Legislators on the Kelsey Briggs DHS Reform Committee! SAVE OUR OKLAHOMA CHILDREN FROM BEING PERMANENTLY DAMAGED BY OKDHS. Place children with members of the family when necessary but don't destroy EVERY member of the family unit! Our children don't deserve what's going on in DHS agencies all across the country.

Come on members of Congress, RESCIND the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. Enact a law that will give Bonus Money to DHS agencies when they HELP the family. That's what is needed! We certainly don't need our Social Security Fund given out so freely to DHS agencies when they permanently damage our little childen and then adopt them for Bonus Money.

Oklahoma Legislators Voted to GIVE OKDHS Funds to Hire 100 MORE CPS employees?

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

ONE HUNDRED M-O-R-E caseworkers will enable DHS's Child Protection Services to damage thousands more of our Oklahoma children. It IS all about money! If it isn't all about money, why did the Oklahoma legislature give Oklahoma DHS/CPS money to hire 100 more workers.

When the judge TOLD our DHS caseworker to send the case to reunification, it was NOT done. Oh, they sent an adoption worker to my home to see if they could be returned to my home. He was not able to find a reason to NOT return the children to my home.

Then, OKDHS hired a contractor to make a home visit my home. The contractor's only desire was to find a way to please the contractor so they could keep the children in custody. The contractor was paid big bucks to visit my ome to find some reason NOT to return the children.

That caseworker, Ms. Hill-Myers told me that my grandchildren's bones had been broken and that DHS said I knew all about how they were broken. She said their bones were broken sometime between January and March 2002. That was during the time the children were living in TWO separate foster homes. All of my visits were stopped in 2001 because I TOLD my grandson why he couldn't find the kids "who got him into trouble on the school bus."

Reunification is a joke in Oklahoma! OKDHS caseworkers arrange to intentionally damage EVERY child so they can be placed them on Medicare. They act like they're trying to reunify the family. Our children need help but they DON'T need the help from Oklahoma DHS/CPS. It doesn't make sense to yank a child out of the home and then make 'attempts' to reunify the family after they've permanently damaged all of them.

Shon, did OKDHS or the judge make even ONE attempt to have your foster child GENTLY reunited with the father and his siblings? NO! They just delivered the child to the father and expected him to handle the situation. How inhumane! That's their way to find a reason to take him back into custody!

Why didn't the caseworker help the father and all the children adapt to the new resident? It would have meant that TWO Oklahoma counties would need to work out a plan. They can't do that! The system needs massive repairs.

There are even interstate agreements to help children be placed with biological family members in another state. However, that's not done because it would mean MONEY would need to be sent from Oklahoma to the other state and the other state would have to have workers visit the home using funds given them from Oklahoma. They can't stand not being in complete control of the money sent out of state. So, instead, they place the child in a home that knows NOTHING about the family except what the DHS worker tells them. The foster home THINKS the DHS worker is being truthful but that's NOT true. DHS AGENTS FABRICATE TALES to justify them keeping the child in custody.

Remember, they co-mingled 3-5 other cases with our case. First, we had to prove we weren't full-blood Kiowa Indian. Then, we found their bones were broken ... another case where children who had fragile bone disease were taken into custody and the DHS worker refused to believe the private physician. The mother's report is above.

I'll never forget the Oklahoma County Juvenile Judge asking one OKDHS worker, "Are the parents STILL living together?" Reunification? That's not reunification! Why have contractors teach Parenting Assistance Classes if the ultimate goal is to have the parents divorce? It makes absolutely no sense! Oh, the caseworker's reply was, "Yes, your Honor, the parents are STILL living together." The foster parents were there with the infant and 4-year old girl. The parents had evidently been ordered to get a divorce.

Divorce is THE UNTIMATE answer according to DHS workers and juvenile judges. Divorces give lawyers more money through family court actions. Divorces give DHS more money when they collect child support from the parent and keep part of it for their services.

It's just like our case! My son called OKDHS caseworker Giwa about parenting classes. Ms. Giwa said, "We don't have parenting classes. You need to move out of the house, take your children with you and get a divorce OR you'll be charged with depriving your children." He wanted help! He didn't want a divorce! These parents evidently needed or wanted help. They must not have wanted a divorce. It's no wonder Oklahoma's divorce rate has skyrocketed since the 1990's.

Private family therapists and counselors are afraid to testify FOR their private client. They're afraid that their primary financial resource will be cut off if they take the side of the family. They get paid BIG BUCKS when they take a case sent them by the DHS agency.

My son moved his children to my house so he'd have more time to get some help for their mother. I'll never forget my grandson saying, "Grandma, why don't you marry my daddy? You love us!" His statement broke my heart. I replied, "Oh, Honey, your mother loves you. She just needs some help to know how to show it." That's what my son was trying to do. She needed help! He tried to help her. The juvenile judge even said, "It looks like OKDHS has failed this family!" Sure nuff! He's correct! They've destroyed the family and permanently damaged both children! The workers didn't FAIL their agency! It IS all about money!

Shon, I'm sorry you don't get to visit the child you had for so long. Maybe instead of reporting the abuse yourself, you should have told the child to show his teacher the bruises. Why didn't the teacher see the bruises that you saw? They're mandated to report suspicions of abuse or neglect!

In the first place, Shon, it's very difficult for a child who has been in foster care for so long to FIT back into the home after being away for such a long time. There had to have been a lot of jealousy between the siblings. Why didn't the caseworker recommend parenting assistance? Why didn't the caseworker send all members of the family to reunification counseling? The only intent of the DHS caseworker is to further damage the child! It's ALL in the interest of what is BEST for the DHS agency. NEVER in the interest of what is BEST for the child!

Hopefully, the Kelsey Briggs OKDHS Reform Committee will learn about these problems and try to write laws to HELP children and families. However, by the time OKDHS finishes writing their "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO DHS EMPLOYEES" the law will be insignificant. Our Oklahoma Legislators need to READ the "Special Instructions to DHS EMPLOYEES" so they'll know how the laws are complied with.

By the way, Shon, I am a former foster parent, too. I'm not a foster parent NOW because the foster parent contractor I worked with required me to be married. I was widowed in 1987. That's why I went to work for OKDHS. I worked for OKDHS from 1989 - 1995.

My foster children lived with me from the time they were 6 and 7 years old until they were 11 and 12 years old. They BOTH STILL call me MOM. We treated them so much like OUR children that when I had the gravemarker made for my deceased husband, I put their names on it as OUR foster children.

When we were asked if we wanted to adopt them, we said, "Sure! If nobody in the family wants them, WE SURE DO!" Their dad was released from prison and worked the plan to get his children returned. They were afraid at first but I told them that they were always welcome to come back or call us. They even left some of their things with us. They hadn't lived with their dad in more than ten years.

I'll never forget what the caseworker told the children. She said, "Always remember that your dad is your dad. Give him that respect. However, you don't have to respect the things he's done." That separated the act from the actor so the kids could adapt to the environment better.

They had been told that their mother was dead. Once they were returned to their father, they learned that their mother and even another sibling were very much alive. Members of the family helped them go to North Carolina to visit their biological mother AND their younger sibling. DHS didn't help them find their mother or their full-blood biological brother. Reunification! NEVER!

It reminds me of the lady from Harrah, Oklahoma who finally found her baby sister. The baby sister had been adopted to a family in Texas and had been told she had no living relatives. LIARS! The three siblings were finally reunitied about a year ago through the efforts of the older sister. OKDHS didn't help them re-unite! The baby sister finally found out what REALLY happened to cause her to be adopted. DHS caseworkers seldom or NEVER tell the truth to a child! The older sister helped a friend search adoption records for a baby whose birthdate was the same as her baby sisters. That's how she found her baby sister.

Come on Oklahoma Legislators on the Kelsey Briggs DHS Reform Committee! SAVE OUR OKLAHOMA CHILDREN FROM BEING PERMANENTLY DAMAGED BY OKDHS. Place children with members of the family when necessary but don't destroy EVERY member of the family unit! Our children don't deserve what's going on in DHS agencies all across the country.

Come on members of Congress, RESCIND the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. Enact a law that will give Bonus Money to DHS agencies when they HELP the family. That's what is needed! We certainly don't need our Social Security Fund given out so freely to DHS agencies when they permanently damage our little childen and then adopt them for Bonus Money.

Why not pay the parents $750-2,500 each month to help their own children. That's what they pay adoptive parents! Why not give the parents at least the same guidance that's given to foster parents? What's going on? It IS all about money!

Your're Right Gail

AUTHOR: Shon - (U.S.A.)

Gail, in our state of Oklahoma, the law states that if a child has been out of the home for the last 15 out of 22 months, then the state must file a petition for termination. However, there is a loop hole.

If the state feels that the parents are "trying" then the petition does not have to be filed. It is all nonsense to me. If you can't get your life together in the almost 1 1/2 years that they give you, then chances are that you never will or if you do minimal to get your kids back, the changes will not last and things will be back where they started.

These parents can take one step forward and the state just "lets things ride" to see more progress. It doesn't matter that when you took the one step forward that you also took two steps back. That tends to be ignored.

Why shouldn't these children be able to have their God given RIGHT to be raised in a stable and safe environment? Just because some woman carried them in her womb or some man's sperm helped produce them, doesn't mean that they are possessions. They are human beings and should be treated like humans.

I just wish that the well being of the children were top priority. I don't care what the parents, foster parents, judges, prosecutors, or anyone else WANTS. I just care what's best for the kids.

Hello Shon,

I am sorry to hear about what happened with your former foster child. It appears that the laws in Oklahoma do not provide for timely decisions on such an important matter.

In Michigan, parents are given one year (unless the abuse is so heinous that the parent is incarcerated) to make changes necessary to properly care for their child. It is a shame that the child you cared for was taken out of your home after 6 years. This doesnt make any sense.

I know that DHS makes mistakes and so does the court, but the bottom line is that children are abused/killed/molested in their own home the vast majority of the time. People tend to talk about stranger abductions or abusive foster parents while children are at greater risk with "mommies boyfriend", daddy the drunk or mom the crack head who live in their own home.

There is no government conspiracy to take children out of their parents homes. Most people are good parents who really care about their children, however, there are some real losers out there who probably never should have had kids.

I know that DHS makes mistakes and so does the court, but the bottom line is that children are abused/killed/molested in their own home the vast majority of the time. People tend to talk about stranger abductions or abusive foster parents while children are at greater risk with "mommies boyfriend", daddy the drunk or mom the crack head who live in their own home.

There is no government conspiracy to take children out of their parents homes. Most people are good parents who really care about their children, however, there are some real losers out there who probably never should have had kids.

Shaun, Kelsey was returned by the JUDGE not CPS

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The courts don't get very much of the Bonus Money from the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. They get Bonus Money for SPEEDING adoptions! It doesn't take many hours to speed an adoption. The judge 'knew' members of the Kelsey Briggs family. DHS didn't want the child returned. The judge wanted her returned. DHS wanted her parents' rights removed so they could adopt her for Bonus Money. Kelsey was worth a lot to OKDHS to keep her in custody.

ONCE AGAIN THE CHILDREN ARE FORGOTTEN!!!!

AUTHOR: Shon - (U.S.A.)

Come on people. This all started over someone scorned about their children being taken into DHS custody. Somehow, its all about the money now. How much DHS/CPS gets for this or that.... The real problem here is that the children are falling through the cracks!!!! All I've read in these reports are money this, bonuses that. It really makes me sick!!!!

Let me ask you something... if DHS was so worried about getting award and bonus money, then why did Kelsey Briggs die??? If DHS, was wanting bonuses so badly, why did she get sent home? I'll admit that the state family court system is something that is big and UGLY, but they are not out to get everyone around.

Let me point out a few facts to you. Their goal is reunification. It doesn't matter what is best for the child. Case in point... We opened our home as foster parents to an infant. I cannot go into certain details for confidentiality purposes, but lets just say that I went to EVERY court case and saw first hand what the parents were doing, or I should say not doing. The parents were given chance after chance after chance. Meanwhile, this child was legally in limbo, though he didn't know it. The mother finally signed away parental rights because she didn't want to "play" anymore. She wouldn't do her programs. The bio father decided he wanted the child though he was not a very big part of his life. We continued playing the games... the judge would threaten that progress would be made or a trial for termination would be set. Ha!! What a joke. He never meant it. Finally, the bio father did minimal and two days before the child's 6th birthday, he was given to the father. Yes, that's right we had him all of those years and he was ripped from the only parents or home he knew. What's worse is that when a child goes home, the bio parents are not required to let the child see the foster parents no matter how many years the child was with them.

We were lucky in the fact that the bio father let us see the child almost every other weekend. We had to kiss up and do everything he wanted, but we did this to be able to see the child. I knew that the child was not being treated fairly and was being spanked with a belt, but I when I discussed this with the social worker, I was informed that he is allowed to do that. Well, over a month ago, my mother picked the child up for his visit with us and brought him to our home. The moment my mother walked in the door, she told me of the bruises on him. I checked him and he had 4 lashes on his body. I was outraged!!!! I was on my way to work, so I called DHS on the way to report this. Thinking the child would finally be safe and not have to endure anymore abuse, I finally had piece of mind. That piece of mind was short lived, very short lived. I received a phone call from my mother at work to tell me that an investigator named Allen was sent to our home and didn't seem too concerned. The investigator talked to the child in front of my mother and the child told him how his dad only spanks him and not the other children and how he hits him in the head. Wow, with the marks and the child's statement, you think that would be enough to rescue the child. No, it wasn't. Nothing was done except to follow up and tell the father that a referral was done in Canadian County. Lets see, I live in Canadian County and the child lives in Oklahoma County. It didn't take the father long to figure out who made the report. Guess what? The father will no longer allow me to see him or speak to him. Phone calls to him will not be returned.

I spoke to the OK County social worker (for one of his other children), but he seem unconcerned. All I received was rehersed answers "I understand your concerns", "I hear what you're saying", etc. He did advise me to contact the investigator and tell him my concerns. Well, if that isn't a "pass the buck" statement, then I don't know what is.

A couple of weeks ago, the bio father got a DUI (public info in the newspaper), but that doesn't seem to matter as well. Also, one of his other children, who happens to be placed with a friend of mine, contracted scabies. How horrible is that??? An infant with scabies!! Funny how he didn't get scabies until he started going on overnight visits with his father. Don't get me wrong. I'm not accusing the father of sexual mis conduct. I don't think that is happening. I just think, the father, who obviously has no regard for the law by looking him up on OSCN.Net, also has no regard for his children.

There are several children involved in this case, but once again, the children have been forgotten. Shame on you DHS and evryone involved for making these children suffer the way they have. Shame on you!!!!!!!!!

One last thing I'd like to add. I'm not writing this to get the child back. I no longer am a certified foster home, so I couldn't get him back anyway. I'm writing this to let you know that the kids are being forgotten, whether its because some of you feel DHS is "keeping them" to adopt them out or whether they are being returned home when they shouldn't be. Its all sad to me because these children, who are our future, are being forgotten.

P.S. Allen from Canadian County, and Fred from Oklahoma County I hope you read this. What I really hope is that you pray for forgiveness and take a stand for these forgotten kids.

CPS Manages to Keep Children in Custody for Bonus Money!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

On July 27, 2006, a friend invited me to Juvenile Court to hear her judge and OKDHS caseworker tell her things that she still needed to do to be able the get her little boy returned. Her little boy was in OKDHS custody for nearly a year.

The lady invited me to be her friend in court becaise my son and I helped her fix the things that OKDHS and the Juvenile Judge required fixing before she could get her son returned.

The reason OKDHS had her son in custody was that her sons were sleeping together in the same bed, she had some broken or cracked windows in her house and she had a leak in her lavatory. NONE of these are reasons to emotionally damage a little child!

We gave the lady a bunk bed with mattresses and set the bed up so her sons could sleep in separate beds. My son went to the local lumber yard and purchased enough window panes to replace ALL of the broken or cracked windows in her house. He also purchased all the materials needed to fix the lavoratory. She didn't enough money to pay for the parts to fix her windows or lavatory. The OKDHS caseworker and juvenile judge KNEW she didn't have the money to hire anyone to fix the problems!

When my son found out why her little boy was taken into OKDHS custody, he immediately purchased all the parts needed to fix her windows and lavatory. Then, he and the lady's older son fixed all the windows and lavatory. The lady had NO money to hire someone to fix all the things she was required to fix so my son did all the work and purchased all the materials needed to fix her deficiencies at NO charge.

My son and I donated our time and funds to fix everything the Juvenile Judge and OKDHS caseworker required. NOW, three months later, she has her son back but her judge has threatened her. She has ordered that the lady NEVER speak to me or her little boy will be taken back into DHS custody again. The lady asked, "Do you mean I can't even attend the same church? Her judge replied, "No. You can continue attending the same church but you're never to speak to her about your case!"

In the first place, friends, DHS agents should NOT take a child into custody for a year because (1) her sons sleep in the same bed, (2) she has broken or cracked windows and (3) her bathroom lavatory leaks. They KNEW she had no funds to comply with their orders! HOWEVER, that's what OKDHS did! They KNEW the lady had no money to hire anyone or even purchase the materials needed. They KNEW that she couldn't fix the things by herself. She was not supposed to tell anyone the reason her son was taken into custody.

THAT'S how DHS agencies manage to keep children in custody so long so they can permanently damage them! They are told the case is confidential and they're not allowed to tell ANYONE. They are told that they cannot even tell their friends or fellow church members that their child was taken into custody or why. DHS agencies AND judges do NOT want anyone to help the family so they can keep the child in their custody and permanently damage him/her.

It's all about money. DHS agents contract with foster homes, stop all visits and refuse to help a parent in need so they can find a way to adopt the child FOR BONUS MONEY.

Friends, the 'confidential' information about why a child is taken into custody needs to be told so the family can get some help. We MUST do everything we can to keep DHS agencies from keeping a child for adoption. Help the parents! The DHS worker and juvenile judges will be MAD but the parent will appreciate the help.

I'm so glad that my son and I were able to help the lady get her little boy returned. Her case is to be completely closed in about a month UNLESS she speaks to me.

I have filed an appeal with the Superior Court of the State of Oklahoma because of the actions taken on July 27, 2006. We MUST fight this monster called CPS and the Juvenile Court System.

It's clear! DHS and the juvenile court system do NOT want children returned home! If the child is returned to his/her parents, they lose the Bonus Money from the ASFA. If the lady's parental rights had been removed because she couldn't comply with their stipulations, OKDHS would have been given $4,000-6,000 for adopting him. According to the ASFA, courts get Bonus Money for SPEEDING adoptions.

I'm so glad the lady told my son and I what she needed and glad that we could help her fix her house so she could get her little hoy returned!

Adoption Reports Ready for DHS to Get Their 2005 Bonus Money

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

You'll be surprised when you read the current DHS Adoption Reports. Announcements of totals given to each state DHS agency will be coming out soon.

Remember reading the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997? It states that the Bonus Money for adopting children comes, UNLIMITED, from our Social Security Fund (FICA Taxes).

Isn't it strange that when a person dies, $255 is given to the surviving widow/widower. The DEATH BENEFIT has been the same amount for 50+ years. President Bush sure can't blame Social Security going broke by 2008 on the Death Benefits paid!

Our Social Security Fund is being ill-managed. It's Fraud, Waste and Abuse of federal funds!

Read the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. It states that if the adopted child has disabilities, the DHS agency will get $6,000. If the child has no disabilities, the DHS agency gets $4,000. If the child is twelve years old or older, they get an ADDITIONAL $10,000 in Bonus Money.

Watch for the report from your state so you'll know how much Bonus Money they were paid for the children they adopted in 2005.

Hearsay Witnesses Testify against the Defendant.

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

One hearsay witness testified in court that one of her kindergarten students looked into his lap during a class. Another teacher testified that the child ran down a hall in school and hit students and teachers. These acts got a man convicted of a crime.

The teacher would not admit that she changed the child's underwear and refused to tell the parents. The DA suppressed ALL evidence that would have cleared the man of any wrongdoing. Where is justice when the judge sustains every objection made by the DA? When the defense lawyer tried to bring out evidence, the DA objected and the judge sustained her objection to the evidence.

When a trial is totally is one side, where is justice?

Laws require that hearsay witnesses give their testimony in court at least ten days BEFORE a trial. One hearsay witness testified the day the trial began. Other hearsay witnesses testified one week before the trial. Where is justice when laws are ignored?

OKDHS Worker FIRED?

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

An OKDHS Social Worker was arrested in Oklahoma County for allowing a child to be sexually abused in HER home. She was also accused of providing drugs to children in her care.

More case workers need to be arrested and convicted of child abuse for what they're doing on the pretext of what's best for the child! Supervisors need to be arrested, too, for emotionally damaging (ABUSE) children in their care.

It's not BEST for a child to be placed on experimental mind-altering drugs and/or counseling. It's BEST to help families when they ask for help. Of course, there's more money for DHS agencies if they DON'T help the family.

Let's ask Dr. Phil to help stop DHS abuse and neglect!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Dr. Phl seems to be interested in children. Let's see if he will bring members of Congress and parents of children who are being abused and neglected by DHS agents to his show to explain why the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 shouldn't be rescinded.

The ASFA give DHS agencies Bonus Money when the exceed their 'mean' rate of adoption. The Bonus Money comes from our Social Security Fund (FICA Taxes).

Read the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. As your congressional representatives to rescind the law IMMEDIATELY. It's actually Fraud, Waste and Abuse of Federal Funds.

I, for one, feel that the foster care program today is supporting DHS abuse and neglect. Many little children are severely injured and some even die in foster care.

Read the ripoff report from the Arizona lady. She has pictures on her site showing the cuts and bruises her little boy is getting in the foster home. If a child shows up with cuts and bruises while living in a DHS foster home, it's fine. The DHS agent says, "It's normal for a child to come up with cuts and bruises!" However, if the child were to have been living with the parent(s) and come up with those cuts and bruises, they would have been taken into custody and placed in a foster home while DHS agents and the court system remove all parenting rights so they can adopt them.

It's TRUE! DHS allows children to suffer cuts and bruises in their foster homes. You'll also find on her rip-off report, a list of children who have died while living in a DHS foster home.

Contact your Congressional Representtive AND Dr. Phil. Let's get DHS abuse and neglect STOPPED! These children are the future leaders of our country. How can we expect them to defend a country who failed to protect them from DHS?

Of course, DHS agents give our children mind-altering drugs and counseling to help them forget about the abuse but that doesn't make it OK for them to continue abusing and neglect our children!

Roma, you are EXACTLY correct! Rescind ASFA!!!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The Department of Human Services IS paid trillions each year for adopting children in compliance with the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. You're correct, Roma, NONE of the money goes to the children. It ALL goes to the DHS agency to use the way they desire. The ASFA states that the Bonus Money comes, unlimited, from our Social Security Fund (FICA Taxes).

Adoptive parents are given thousands of dollars each month in state Adoption Incentives and Adoption Assistance. Some of the money is paid to the adoptive parents until the child reaches the age of eighteen years old OR twenty-two if the child is still in school. Read the Adoption Incentive Brochure in your state. Read the Adoption Assistance Brochure in your state and you'll find the adoptive family is given humongous amounts of money to help the children adapt to the adoptive home. The adoptive family chooses how the money is used remodeling their home, buying new furniture ANYTHING to help the adopted children adapt to the new adoptive home. Why don't DHS give some of the money to biological parents to help them remodel their house and buy new furniture for their children? It's not rewarding to help biological parents!

When President Bush extended the Clinton Administration's Adoption and Safe Families Act from 2002 through 2008, he also lowered the requirements so that more states could qualify for the Bonus Money. NOW, instead of doubling their adoptions, the DHS agency must adopt ONE more than their mean average' of adoptions and they qualify for the Bonus Money. At least thirty-one DHS agencies have qualified for and received Bonus Money EVERY YEAR since 1997. It's no wonder that President Bush said our Social Security Fund would be broke by 2008. How many years can DHS agencies be given more than $17 trillion dollars for adopting children and still have money to pay those who qualify to receive their retirement benefits? THAT'S WHY OUR SOCIAL SECURITY FUND IS REPORTEDLY GOING BROKE! It's going to DHS agencies in the form of Bonus Money.

In Oklahoma, children are given clothes that they may eventually grow into if they survive OKDHS abuse and neglect. DHS contractors are paid $300+ per hour to take the side of DHS abuse and neglect. When a psychologist testifies FOR DHS, if their testimony pleases the DHS agency, they're paid $300-400 per hour AND given future contracts. However, if their testimony shows DHS HAS abused and neglected the children OR that the accusations against the family are false, his/her contracts with DHS will stop. DHS can't afford to pay anyone to testify against them. It would cause them to lose the Bonus Money.

When I worked in the Pauline E. Mayer Shelter, I tried to turn children's attention to something other than their loved ones to help them stop crying. Some of the little children cried so hard that it made them sick. Some cried themselves to sleep. It is totally unbelievable what DHS agents put little children through when they protect' them from abuse and neglect. They're exposed to far more abuse and neglect while in DHS custody than when they're living with biological parents or grandparents!

Why doesn't DHS/CPS want to help parents? They know that if they help parents, it's less likely that they'll get Bonus Money for adopting their children. The Bonus Money only goes to DHS agents when they can remove all parenting rights and adopt a child in the interest of what is BEST for the child! Bonus Money is NOT in the interest of what is BEST for the child!!! Bonus Money IS in the interest of what is BEST to help DHS agencies continue abusing and neglecting our little children.

It's true! Everywhere a foster child goes, someone is given money to continue abusing and neglecting the child and destroy all relationships with the biological family. Just as David Pratt said, Everywhere I go, somebody gets money to keep me from my mom and dad!

When a state agency, like DHS, reaches for Bonus Money at the expense of our future leaders, it's time to think about what's going on. ALL evidence indicates that caring for children is NOT in the interest of what is best for the child, but instead, in the interest of what is BEST for DHS agents to pay them to continue their abuse and neglect services. When will children get what is BEST for them? They'll have more of a chance to get what is BEST for them when DHS/CPS is closed and lying caseworkers put in prison for neglecting and abusing children or knowing the abuse and neglect was going on and not doing anything to stop it.

You said it right, Roma, their primary function is to protect children from abuse and neglect yet they are guilty of more abuse and neglect that anyone! Parents would NEVER jerk their child up and put them in the room with strangers and have them question them unending. Yet, DHS/CPS caseworkers do just that! They ask the child if their parent ever touched them. If they say yes' then there's further questioning. Like, How many times did your mother touch you? Where did your mother touch you? Did it hurt you when your mother touched you? The Intake Worker told the father, A father should NEVER touch his children! It is NOT appropriate! I wonder if male' caseworkers touch the child they're assigned to. Surely, they can't even hug them when they make good grades. After all, DHS says it is NOT acceptable for a father to touch his child. Why are strangers allowed to touch children but it's not acceptable for a parent to touch them? Something is really wrong with a society who says it is NOT appropriate for a parent to touch their child. Since it's not appropriate for a parent to touch his/her child, then who is supposed to feed and clothe them? Who is supposed to change their diaper or pull-up? Who is supposed to give the child a bath? Something HAS to change for parents to be allowed to care for their children as God intended!

I still am in disbelief at the abuse forced on both of my grandchildren. When the DHS caseworker couldn't understand what my speech handicapped granddaughter was saying, she called a MAN into the room to help (TWO ADULTS) restrain her. Then, once she was totally restrained from rolling her eyes, putting her hands on her hips and turning in circles (all signs used by speech handicapped children when they're frustrated from the person not understanding what they're trying their best to say), she said, I sawee! Then the OKDHS report says she was returned to the Pauline E. Mayer Shelter and placed in infant pull-ups the remaining sixty days she was protected' in the shelter! I still can't believe she was KICKED out of school in the shelter every day! It's called care-giving' to kick them out of school! Sixty days she was severely abused by care-givers' in the Pauline E. Mayer Shelter in the interest of what was BEST for her! WHY? So they could get Bonus Money!

Why, Roma, would DHS caseworkers combine files? Our case was combined with a Kiowa Indian case. It's STILL in the OKDHS KIDS file. How bad were their bones broken while living in the two foster homes? The home study caseworker from North Care said OKDHS records said their bones were broken between January and March 2002. How crippled are they? Will they ever be able to walk again? Who broke their bones? Why can't DHS agents tell the truth?

Who is Andy Brown and Susan Rhodes? Andy Brown supposedly told OKDHS caseworker, Ms. Giwa, that he went to college with my son. Susan Rhodes said she attended school with my son's wife. How did they know to call Ms. Giwa? Their report stated that they visited nearly every week with my son and his family. Why doesn't anyone in the family KNOW Susan and Andy? Why did the OKDHS KIDS file list their phone numbers with OKDHS phone prefixes and give their addresses as vacant lots? It's in the record. You cannot believe anything written in DHS reports. Judges need to realize that DHS caseworkers are not capable of telling the truth.

Oh, if you'd just read the Federal Budget for HHS! They get $$ trillions of dollars to feed their child abuse and neglect machine. They run them through the machine' in droves of 2,000 3,000 per day. How can our future generation continue much longer with such tactics used to destroy them?

Our little children are immediately diagnosed, by DHS contractors, as emotionally disabled so they can be put on Medicaid. It is nothing but fraud, waste and abuse of federal funds to support the DHS abuse and neglect system!

It's true that children who are diagnosed with disabilities of any sort bring in the greatest amount of money to DHS from Medicare and Social Security so that's the ones they eagerly take into custody and further increase their disabilities. DHS agencies get massive amounts of funds when they can put any child into a foster home, the more children placed in foster care, the more money the DHS agency receives from the federal government. They get NO money to help the family!

The most profitable means to increase their funding is for DHS/CPS to increase its daily caseload by taking more little children into custody. Additional profit is made by removing their parents' rights so they can be adopted for Bonus Money. It's a delight of every DHS manager, supervisor and director to tear another family apart and emotionally disable their children for $$$$. DHS agencies have plenty of money and means to provide parenting assistance to those who need help but they're not about to use the money to help the parents. They use the money to pay contractors to try to salvage what is left of the child from DHS abuse and neglect.

By taking handicapped children into custody, DHS agencies receive six to eight times more funding than what is needed for foster placement. It's ALL about money!

It doesn't matter how badly DHS/CPS needs additional funding, NO child should suffer DHS abuse and neglect. The truth is that 28 percent of the children taken into DHS custody experience abuse in the DHS shelter before being placed in foster homes or other DHS facilities. The fatality rate of children in state protective care is nine times higher than that of children in the general population. How can DHS say this is In the interest of what is BEST for the child?'

According to reports, 2,500 children are seized every day by child protective services in this country. Of those, only 400 are for "substantiated abuse." Inexplicably and incredibly, studies by the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect found that 61 percent of the "substantiated" cases it looked at did not even qualify as child maltreatment by the center's standards! Fifty-four percent were related to poverty or "deprivation of necessities," indicating that state and federal funds are being misused, FW& A. Those needing help are refused the help they request from assistance programs. DHS says they don't have the money to help a family with their food or shelter but they have plenty of money to permanently damage each child in the home. They refer people to churches or neighborhood assistance centers funded by fundraisers. SOMETIMES, if the family has transportation to the DHS office, they give the family assistance with food stamps. If they have no transportation, they do without unless they can find a friend or neighbor to help them. The DHS agency does absolutely NOTHING to help them. If they can't write clearly, they're denied assistance. If they have no transportation, they're denied assistance. That's the way they keep their budget flooded with means to destroy families!

It has been professionally estimated that 1.5 million parents are falsely accused of child neglect or abuse each year in the United States. There's plenty of evidence, just as in our case, that DHS/CPS is engaged in deliberate fabrication to tap into the state's $12 billion federal budget for child protective services.

"By seizing children illegally...via the filing of false and fraudulent documents...DHS is deliberately defrauding the federal government with the intent to get more money.

The DHS "money machine" is given multi-million dollars to contract with DHS agency psychologists, therapists and massive numbers of other services. DHS charges Medicaid inflated rates to pay those contractors at the rate of $300-1,500 per hour for each child serviced.

The federal government also provides financial incentives for getting children adopted after being in state custody for only a year, despite stipulations in both federal law and DHS policies that supposedly make every effort to keep families together.

In our case, there was NO real effort to keep the family together. During Family Assessment of Needs, Caseworker Hill recommended that parental rights be removed rather than given assistance!

Oklahoma DHS has priority placements for children in custody but they're not followed. The first priority is with parent(s), second priority is with grandparent(s), third priority is with other relatives and fourth priority is with the foster parents. Why do they skip the first three priorities and adopt them to the foster parents?

Oklahoma DHS makes NO meaningful attempt to keep the family together. They allow' supervised visits to some parents. Then, they tell the judge that the child didn't respond the way the DHS worker expected the child to respond so they recommend that ALL visits stop.

My visits were stopped when my grandson asked about the kids who got him into trouble on the school bus. He had looked everywhere in the shelter for several days and couldn't find any of them. He was puzzled why HE couldn't find the kids. That was the last time I was allowed to visit with either of my grandchildren.

Please contact your congressional representatives. Ask them to rescind the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 so children will have what is BEST for them and DHS agencies will stop being flooded with our Social Security Fund. We paid our F.I.C.A. taxes to the Social Security Fund so that when we qualify for our benefits, they'll be there.

Dean, Please READ my reply to your posting!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Thank you for admitting that we're right! All of us who have had our children and/or grandchildren yanked up by the so called Child Protection Services know full well that DHS abuses and neglects more children than ALL parents around the world! DHS agencies spend lots of money trying to correct their errors.

You're correct, Dean, DHS DOES have problems! However their problem is NOT that they're underpaid or overworked! They have PLENTY of MONEY and PLENTY of employees. Their problem is that they get Bonus Money when they can manage some way to remove all parenting rights so they can adopt the child and get Bonus Money. Managers, directors, supervisors and caseworkers KNOW that it's all about money! IT'S ALL ABOUT BONUS MONEY to support their child abuse and neglect system!

Dean, I don't appreciate a worker at the Oklahoma City "CARE CENTER" showing my eight-year old grandson pictures of naked people! She made at least two attempts to force him to look at her naked pictures! Then, she reported that when he said, "I don't want to look at pictures of naked people" it was a sign he had been sexually abused. His daddy had told him that he should discuss sexual matters with him or his grandmother or male teachers NOT with women! It's clear to me that the CARE Center employee attempted to sexually exploit my little grandson. Of course her job was to find something to help DHS keep the children in custody! If she couldn't fabricate something, then they would have less contracts given to the agency. It's ALL about money!

Dean, in OUR case file, there is at least one page where a DHS worker took the time to write a report about several caseworkers IN THE ROOM discussing whether the grandmother has false teeth or not! Why was it so important to spend an afternoon having several DHS caseworkers discuss the grandmother's false teeth? What difference would it have been? Why is it, Dean, that DHS workers have PLENTY of time to discuss false teeth but NO time to protect children from being sexually molested in foster homes?

Our court found that OKDHS placed another child in the foster home who sexually exploited my six-year-old handicapped granddaughter. The report stated that the five-year-old boy opened his robe and asked the kindergarten girl to come into his bedroom and feel of his private parts. Of course, it was deemed OK since the foster parent 'counseled' both of the children about their conduct. Then, three months later, when my eight-year-old grandson was placed in the same home, the court found that the same boy attempted to sexually exploit him also. The report said that my grandson told the foster mother about the exploitation and the foster mother AGAIN counseled the boy. He had to sleep in the same room with the boy. That's OKDHS protective custody!

Dean, you're incorrect when you state that DHS employees are overworked or underpaid! Making false reports, combining case records and telling judges lies is NOT a sign the case worker is overworked or underpaid. It's a sign that they are liars!

I filed a grievance against OKDHS when TWO adult caseworkers 'restrained' my handicapped granddaughter when she couldn't answer the questions the worker asked with the answers the caseworker wanted! The grievance was MOOT because one of the caseworkers resigned.

Another grievance was MOOT because they had decided to take 'another route' in their care plan.

YES, DHS agencies have overwhelming problems! Their biggest problem is complying with the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 so that they can get the BONUS MONEY. In October 2005, OKDHS received more than $9.2 million dollars for the adoptions finalized in 2004. In 2005, more than $17 Trillion dollars was given to DHS agencies across the country for adoptions finalized in 2004. Oklahoma has been given Bonus Money every year since 1997. IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY!

When applying the ASFA, DHS agencies get $4,000-6,000 for each child they adopt who is less than twelve years old. When they adopt an older child, those twelve or older, they get an additional $10,000.

If you read ALL of this report, you'll find instances where DHS workers are ordered by DHS directors, managers and supervisors to do anything they can to take another child into custody, remove their parenting rights and adopt them so they can get the Bonus Money. If the worker makes an attempt to help the family with Parenting Classes or Anger Management Classes or assistance to help the, the worker is humiliated by his/her co-workers.

When the Family Assessment was made, the DHS worker recommended that ALL parenting right be removed from the parents. There was NO recommendation for Parenting Classes or Anger Management Classes or any sort of help.

As for getting rid of the DHS staff, that's not necessary. Just simply rescind the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and children will have a better chance of getting what is BEST for them. As long as the ASFA is in effect, DHS will be getting what is BEST for them. They'll do anything in their power to get the Bonus Money! The OKDHS Director, Mr. Hendricks, said he'll be using $5 million dollars of the $9.2 Million Dollars of Bonus Money to update the agency's computer system.

What about the ELEVEN children adopted into ONE adoptive home? How insane! Any DHS agent should know that most adopted children need additional special assistance. Of course the adoptive parents get Adoption Incentives and Adoption Assistance payments to help the children adapt to their new adopted home. Those ELEVEN children were taken BACK into custody so they could be adopted again FOR ADDITIONAL BONUS MONEY to the DHS agency!

You say, "Let's just get rid of DHS! Forget the kids that need them." You say, "Yes, mistakes are made...but parents and grandparents are just as much to blame here." So, you think it was a mistake for me to write a letter to the local school principal asking her to protect little kindergarten children on school buses? You think it was my fault that FIVE older boys sexually assaulted my six-year-old handicapped granddaughter!

You think it was my fault that my grandson was having severe abdominal pain from reactions to the prescription when he was placed in the kinship home. We told the case worker that the medicine caused reactions. The Patient Information Sheet clearly described reactions to expect. The doctor KNEW the medication caused reactions. Teachers changed his underwear without telling the parents or grandparent. Why couldn't they call the parents or me when he had reactions? It's ALL about abusing and neglecting children for Bonus Money!

Dean, I have been a foster parent, too, and I've worked as a Youth Guidance Specialist for OKDHS and have many years of experience working with children in public schools, in churches and in scouting activities. I completed my BS degree in Education but DHS did not want the children returned to my home because I couldn't protect them from the assaulters on the school bus! The judge didn't want the children to return to the school where they were sexually assaulted!

The OKDHS contracted counselor said the children were too confused to even visit me or their father. When my grandson was asked if he wanted to be adopted by the foster home, he said, "I'd rather live in the Shelter." The foster parents went to work involving him with neighboring children so he'd want to stay with them so they could get the money for caring for him.

My grandson's lawyer told jurors in the courtroom that the father had already relinquish his parenting rights! His case had not even been scheduled! His case was even moved to another courtroom after the Oklahoma Supreme Court ordered that judge to be recused from the case because she visited with witnesses before they testified and visited with jurors before they heard all the case.

My grandson's court appointed lawyer told the court that both children were in Extended Grief Therapy! My granddaughter's court appointed lawyer told the judge, "These children have been destroyed during the past year!" The judge said, "It looks like OKDHS has failed this family!"

When the judge ordered me to complete foster parent/adoptive parent training (PATH Training) and to visit the foster parents ... in his attempt to reunify the family, the OKDHS Adoptions worker stopped me from complying with the judge's orders. As we left the courtroom, the OKDHS adoptions caseworker stopped me and quietly said, "I don't want you to say one word to the foster parents until AFTER I talk to them." So, I left their school supplies with the caseworker so they'd have them before school began. Three weeks later, I called the adoptions worker and asked if she had visited the foster parents. Her reply was, "Yes, and they feel uncomfortable visiting with you!"

Deam. ot IS my fault that I didn't return to the courtroom and tell the judge what the caseworker ordered. I TRUSTED that DHS worker when I should NOT have.

Dean, in the spring of 2001, the father called OKDHS asking about Parenting Classes. Caseworker, Ms. Giwa, said, "We don't have parenting classes! You need to move from the house, take the children with you and get a divorce OR you'll be charged with depriving the children." When I called to confirm they no longer had parenting classes, she told me the same thing. "Yes, I told your son that he needs to move out of the house, take his chidlren with him and get a divorce OR he'll be charged with depriving the children. He finished moving from the house in July 2001. The children were moved to my house several months earlier to give their daddy more time to get help for their mother's illness.

Six months later, the children were taken into DHS protective custody as a result of the sexual assault on the school bus. Then, the lawyer found that Ms. Giwa wrote a note in the case file stating, "A letter was mailed to the parents telling them about Parenting Assistance Classes and about Anger Management Classes." It's so strange that Ms. Giwa couldn't put her finger on the telephone and call the father or me about the classes. Instead, she wrote the note in the OKDHS KIDS file.

I suppose, Dean, that you feel that combining our case file with that of a Kiowa Indian Case was because they are overworked or underpaid. I can't agree! When the homestudy casework told me that my grandchildren's bones were broken while in foster care, I was shocked. I suppose you think their bones were broken because DHS employees are underpaid and overworked! I beg to differ. DHS abuse and neglect is NOT because they are underpaid or over worked! It's because they get Bonus Money for abusing and neglecting children in their care.

DHS caseworkers DO lie to parents, care-givers AND to the court. They get paid big bucks for lying! Our caseworker LIED when she said I went to the school where the kinship mother had placed my grandson! I have proof that was a lie! The Home Study Caseworker was given a copy of the letter from the school proving she lied to the court! She lied because she didn't want to do her assigned job!

Tell me, Dean, why did DHS agents want me to bring the school's portion of my grandson's prescription to them. Why didn't school officials send the medication with the child when he was taken into protective custody. Why did Ms. Norton say, "You just want your grandchildren to suffer!" Is that because they're overworked and underpaid?

DHS agents get Bonus Money for reducing the number of Unwed Mothers, too! They provide protective devices FREE to high school counselors. The counselors GIVE the devices to children who say they want to be sexually active. They're not required to contact parents when the child asks for the pregnancy prevention devices. The children can't discuss sex matters with their parents. Counselors CAN discuss sexual matters with young children but they're not allowed to tell the parents.

When I subbed in a local high school, I was embarrassed when I looked in the textbook used for the class. Students said they were not allowed to take the textbook home for their parents to see what they were being taught!

Dean, why do OKDHS caseworkers say, "A father should NEVER touch his child?" Evidently, if his child needs his diaper changed or a bath given or clothes changed, he is supposed to call a neighbor LADY to do those things if his wife is not available or unable to care for the child. OKDHS agents say, "A father should NEVER touch his child!"

When I read the report about OKDHS applying the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997, the report gave three excuses why they had not met the requirements early in the program. The Oklahoma DHS/CPS excuses were, (1) our turnover rate is too high, (2) it takes to long to train new employees and (3) we don't know where the father should fit into the family.

Instead of throwing children out on the street or promoting CPS abuse and neglect, why not help parents learning alternative parenting skills? Why do they pay foster parents to care for the child when the money could be better utilized by helping the parents with housing, food and clothing? Why not recommend that the parent attend parenting classes?

NO. Dean, we don't need DHS with the priorities they currently promote, Adopting children for Bonus Money!!!

Again, Dean, I cannot agree with your statement that the DHS staff is overworked and underpaid! I worked for them! I've been there when the child asked questions or had needs! The DHS approximate ratio for child/worker is 1/1 PLUS foster parents! DHS contractors have approximately the same ratio of workers/chidren. I dare you to prove me wrong in my ratio approximations!

Parents and grandparents are NOT perfect. DHS workers are FAR from perfect! The difference is that parents and grandparents want what is BEST for the child. DHS agents want what is BEST for them to keep their jobs and their massive salaries! Parents and grandparents sure don't want them adopted to strangers so DHS can get Bonus Money!!! Kids do NOT need DHS to 'protect' them!

Dean, why didn't you try to get some help for the parents? What's wrong with finding parenting classes or anger management classes or a class that you think could help them? Why not care for the children while the parents attend the meetings? It wouldn't hurt you too much to even pay the $5-10 per session for them to attend the classes.

Why don't you want to help the parents so the family can stay together? Why don't you help the parents get involved in church activities. Pick them up and take them with you as you take the children with you. Don't you want what is BEST for these children? Divorce is not the best answer to keep a family united!

Again, why not help the parents get involved with church activities? Let the FIVE children KNOW that their parents WANT to be good parents. What harm would that do? It could save a family. No, don't just leave the kids to have their lives destroyed! Find the help the parents need to make a wholesome family!

DHS/CPS DOES GET BILLIONS EACH YEAR

AUTHOR: Roma - (U.S.A.)

AND THE CHILDREN DO NOT RECEIVE IT. IT ALL GOES TO BACKDOOR PROVIDERS OF MENTAL HEALTH, SHELTERS, NEW CARS FOR SOCIAL WORKERS, ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS AND GOD KNOWS WHERE IT GOES. THE CHILDREN AT THE SHELTERS IN ARIZONA HAVE NO CLOTHES. THEY ARE IN THE SAME CLOTHES FOR 20 DAYS STRAIGHT.

Foster Care, CHILDREN HELD HOSTAGE
DSS is big business; children are its capital
"Everywhere I go, somebody gets money to keep me from having a mom and dad."
Anonymous foster child, By David Pratt
Maximizing revenue is sound business policy. It's also a wise course for government to pursue to get the most out of its budget. But when a state agency like the Department of Social Services reaches for the dollars at the expense of children, it's time to rethink the policy.
Mounting evidence suggests the primary motivation of DSS is money and not the welfare of children, despite the agency's most basic mandate.

Even worse, it is argued that children are being used as the means to that end, used as an expanding capital base to maintain DSS' $500 million annual state budget and to increase its federal funding levels.

"The issue is about greed. It's about feeding children into a gargantuan money machine," said Barnstable resident Nev Moore, founder of Justice for Families. "The money machine is about two-bit junk psychologists forming multi-million-dollar contracts with DSS. It's about massive Medicaid fraud, and it's about bringing federal dollars into the state."

Weighty charges, to be sure, and yet difficult to discount when the evidence is considered.
By its own admission, DSS is interested in "maximizing federal revenues." The agency even has a contract with a financial consultant to advise it on how to do just that.

Unfortunately, the most effective mechanism to increase federal funding is for DSS to increase its case load by taking advantage of lower-class families who lack the power, money and knowledge to stop the state from tearing them apart. That's because children eligible for Medicaid and Social Security, as well as those with special needs, bring in the most federal dollars.

According to a report by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, which uses Massachusetts as an example of how to maximize federal funding, "States typically obtain more revenue from the federal foster care program by increasing the number of cases that are eligible for federal reimbursement... Massachusetts raised its percentage of children's eligible cases for reimbursement from 23 percent of all children receiving services to nearly 65 percent in 1996."
Virginia-based researcher Emerich Thoma says, "There is a little known formula employed by child welfare agencies...Before its system is considered fiscally well-managed, it has to have a minimum ratio of 50 percent of its children eligible for SSI." He adds that by taking such a child into custody agencies can receive six to eight times more funding than what is needed for foster placement.

"Two Massachusetts studies serve to demonstrate the inextricable link between poverty and child removal," according to Thoma. One study of injured children brought into emergency rooms found that the predictor of removal from their homes by DSS is not based on the seriousness or cause of the injury.

"Specifically, the researchers found that the highest predictor of removal was not the extent of a given physical injury, but rather whether or not the family was Medicaid eligible," Thoma reports.

It doesn't matter how badly DSS needs funding. Targeting low-income families is hardly an acceptable prejudice, even if one assumes that all children taken into state custody actually suffer abuse and neglect. The truth is, many children taken from truly abusive situations are not always better off. Nationally, 28 percent experience abuse while in foster homes or other facilities. The fatality rate of children in state care is nine times higher than that of children in the general population.

According to Nev Moore, 2,500 children are seized every day by child protective services in this country. Of those, only 400 are for "substantiated abuse." Inexplicably and incredibly, studies by the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect found that 61 percent of the "substantiated" cases it looked at did not even qualify as child maltreatment by the center's standards!

Fifty-four percent were related to poverty or "deprivation of necessities," which suggests the need for a more constructive use of state and federal money.

Moore estimates that 1.5 million parents are falsely accused of child neglect or abuse each year in the United States. She says she has evidence that DSS has engaged in deliberate fabrication to tap into the $12 billion federal budget for child protective services.

"By seizing children illegally...via the filing of false and fraudulent documents...DSS is defrauding the federal government with deliberate intent," charges Moore, who is helping to organize a federal class action suit against the state agency.

Moore says the "money machine" includes exclusive multi-million dollar contracts that DSS has with service providers such as psychologists, therapists and institutional facilities. She claims Medicaid is charged inflated rates for DSS-mandated services that are often unnecessary or irrelevant to a particular case. There are twice as many families receiving services as there are children in foster care.

The federal government also provides financial incentives for getting children adopted after being in state custody for only a year, despite stipulations in both federal law and DSS' own policy that, first and foremost, every effort should be made to keep families together. Moore points out that the entire structure of the child protective services system encourages just the opposite.

Moore further suggests that money is not the only motivation. She alludes to a statement by Hillary Clinton calling for "a social worker in every home," and to Goals 2000, a masterpiece in social engineering signed into law in 1994 that deals with more than just educational goals. Moore interprets the phasing in of the various provisions of Goals 2000 as a restructuring of society in which government agencies take precedence over family in determining the proper way to raise children.

Yes, DHS has problems...yes, the staff is overworked and underpaid...Let's just get rid of them! Forget the kids that need them. Yes, mistakes are made...but parents and grandparents are just as much to blame here.

I was a foster parent...keyword...was...due to the inability of the parents to realize that they were going to ruin their 5 stairstepped children. The parents were abusive...before you say I was lied to by DHS...no, I knew them. So, here are 5 kids that will end up dead, homeless, or pregnant or a combination of the above...let's just keep fighting for them..so no one else can love them.

Throw em on the street...why not...who needs DHS who needs foster parents?

Let's just leave these kids to have their lives destroyed!

OKDHS, PLEASE STOP EMOTIONALLY DISABLING OUR FUTURE GENERATION FOR BONUS MONEY!!!!!!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

I've worked in the Pauline E. Mayer Shelter in OKC trying to console little children who were taken into OKDHS protective custody! Those little children have cried themselves to sleep in my arms many times. Sometimes they're given mind-altering drugs to help them relax and sleep. It's NOTHING but abuse by DHS agents!

Those children should be placed with loving relatives! Instead, they're emotionally disabled, abused, kicked out of school, abused and neglected in every means immaginable.

My grandchildren were taught to curse by DHS agents and children in the Pauline E. Mayer Shelter! They were covered with lice! My granddaughter was so traumatized that she was placed on Infant Pull-ups at the age of SIX! It's called CPS CARE!

When my grandson was placed in a 'kinship' home, he was crying with abdominal pain caused by reactions to the medication prescribed. OKDHS Intake Worker, Wilson, KNEW the medication was a problem but REFUSED to listen to the parents or grandmother!

When Ms. Wilson couldn't understand what the speech-handicapped kindergarten girl was saying, she called a MAN into the room to 'restrain' her. Then, once totally restrained, the OKDHS KIDS report says she said, "I sawee!" Then, she was taken back to the PEMS caregivers, placed on infant pull-ups and clothes 4-6 sizes too large to cover the pull-ups. She was KICKED our of school on numerous occasions in the PEMS! WHY?

DHS 'caregivers' don't care what happens to a child since the primary concern is getting Bonus Money for adopting them! They can bawl their eyes out and the caregiver doesn't care. They're not ALLOWED to care for the child! After all, they might become 'attached' the the little child.

Rosey, DHS/CPS needs to be Closed or Drastically Reformed to stop abuse and neglect by the Agency!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Rosey, Oklahoma just passed the Kelsey Briggs OKDHS Reform Act. I've asked to be on the committee established by the Act because I have valued personal experience dealing with OKDHS.

If I'm no selected to be a member of the committee, I will send materials to members of the committee to help them KNOW where corrective actions needs to be priority!

First, DHS/CPS caseworkers need to be held totally responsible when they abuse and/or neglect any child in their care! Both of my grandchildren have been severely damaged by the actions taken by OKDHS.

Second, court apponted lawyers need to be truthful with a child. My grandson's lawyer told him that his daddy NEVER wanted to see him again. The judge asked him where he'd like to live and he said, "I guess since my daddy NEVER wants to see me again, I want to live with my aunt or my mother."

When my speech handicapped granddaughter was trying to answer the Intake Worker's questions, she KNEW the worker was not understanding what she was trying to say. She began rolling her eyes, putting her hands on her hips and 'huffing' at the worker. The worker called a MAN into the room to help 'restrain' her! Then she returned her to the care center where she was forced to wear infant pull-ups the remaining TWO months she resided in the shelter. She was 'KICKED' out of school on numerous occasions. When she was placed in a therapeutic home, she was covered with lice, still wearing infant pullups and prolifically saying horrible curse words she learned at the shelter!

When my grandson was placed in a kinship home, he was rolling on the floor, holding his abdomen and crying, reactions to his medication. The Intake Worker was told about his reactions but refused to tell the caregivers in the shelter.

When I filed a grievance for the abuse and neglect, it was "MOOT" because the Intake Worker was no longer an employee!

Third, the Guardian ad Litem or CASA Volunteer is required by Oklahoma Law to talk to persons the child associated with before they were taken into custody. I find it very strange that the GAL feared talking to me! The children were living with me when the mother called and told school officials to put the children on the bus to her house. My six-year-old handicapped granddaughter had never ridden a school bus before September 28, 2001. FIVE older boys began sexually assaulting her. High school girls came to her rescue when my grandson ran to the back of the bus for help.

I'm looking forward to knowing who is selected to be on the Kelsey Briggs OKDHS Reform Act Committee.

Save Social Security! Rescind the ASFA!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

In October 2005, DHS agencies were given more than $17 Trillion dollars for adoptions finalized in 2004.

Some of the children were adopted to their own biological parents. Some children are being adopted over and over again! It's ALL about money.

DHS is given $4,000-6,000 for each child they can manage to adopt. If the child is twelve years old or older, they get an ADDITIONAL $10,000 in Bonus Money.

In Oklahoma, children are USED to beg for an adoptive home. Several TV advertisements have twelve year-old children saying, "Won't you find a place in your home for me? I WANT a FAMILY!" They usually use more than one child in the advertisements. Watch for the TV advertisements. DHS will do anything to get that Bonus Money! They even use children to advertise for an adoptive home so they can get the Bonus Money!

RESCIND OKLAHOMA HB 1250 IMMEDIATELY

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Read Oklahoma HB 1250, effective November 1, 2005. HB 1250 is attempting to override Oklahoma Statutes in placement of children in DHS custody. Mr. Ray Young should be ashamed that he even drafted the bill. I'm sure Mr. Howard Hendricks, OKDHS Director was proud to allow Mr. Young to show his lack of knowledge about Oklahoma Statutes. I wonder how much he paid Mr. Young to write HB 1250.

By the way, BONUS MONEY was given to DHS agencies again last week. Oklahoma received more than $9 million dollars for adopting our little children.

I wonder how many $ Trillion dollars was taken from our Social Security Fund (FICA Taxes) this time. There will be NO Social Security Fund left for retirees by the end of 2008. President Bush extended the ASFA from 2002 through 2008 and lowered the requirements so that more states can qualify for the Bonus Money and Awards.

Federal Class-Action Lawsuits

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

President Bush signed a bill this year that promotes Class Action Lawsuits to be filed in Federal Court when the lawsuit affects people from several states. It states that too many lawyers were settling Class Act Lawsuits through bribery from the firms reported. Those filing the lawsuit get nothing while the lawyers get the BIG BUCKS for settling the suit.

SO, that means that Class-Action Lawsuits against state DHS agencies, should be filed in Federal Court since DHS abuse and neglect affects residents in EVERY state.

Cases where individual DHS contractors and/or individual caseworkers have lied, abused and/or neglected a child should be filed in county/state Criminal Courts.

Virtually EVERY child taken into custody is severely abused and neglected by individuals who fit into these categories in DHS agencies. If an individual judge has caused further abuse/neglect of a child as they follow the recommendations of DHS caseworkers or contractors should be held accountable for the decisions they make, too. If we file a federal class act against judges, it would need to be against the judicial departments of each state.

In Oklahoma, House Bill 1250 is pushing the adoption of our children to foster parents. Courts KNOW that DHS agency workers STOP all contact between the parents and children within hours after the child is taken into custody. Yet, HB 1250 says if the child lives in the foster home for ONE YEAR, the foster parents have priority to adopt the child.

When I talked to Representative Young, the author of the bill, I found that he was NOT aware that DHS stops contact between parents and children. OKDHS director, Howard Hendricks, told him that they TRY to place the children with members of the biological family.

In PATH training, for foster parents and/or adoptive parents, foster/adoptive parents are TOLD that when a child wants to talk about their biological relatives, they are to direct their attention to another subject.

When the judge asked the adoptive parents if my grandchildren ever asked to see me or their father, the mother foster said, "Yes, but I immediately turn their attention to another subject so they'll stop thinking about them."

Paragraph B of Oklahoma HB 1250 says, "If the child has resided with a foster parent for at least one (1) year, the court shall give great weight to the foster parent in the adoption consideration for the child UNLESS there is an existing loving emotional bond with a relative of the child by blood or marriage who is willing, able and eligible to adopt the child."

MY QUESTION IS, "How can there be a loving, emotional bond with members of the biological family when DHS and the foster parents put a complete stop to any resemblance of a loving bond or contact?"

Once the child has been in the foster home for a 3-6 months, a DHS contractor gives the children DETACHMENT DISORDER counseling to help them adapt to a complete break in biological family relationships. Then, the DHS counselor reports to the judge, "The children are TOO CONFUSED to visit their family!" HMMMMM!!!!

I just thought you'd like to KNOW that our legislators do NOT know what is REALLY going on in DHS agencies. They know what DHS SAYS is going on but not what REALLY IS going on!

BOUNTY PAYMENTS FOR ADOPTIONS - How much is YOUR child worth to DHS/CPS?

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

As some readers will say, here's more 'rantings' from "L" from Oklahoma County, OK. The truth needs to be known even if it's considered 'rantings' posted in this website.

WWW.FIGHTCPS.COM'S "Fighting Child Protective Services False Accusations." Here's one of the reasons why state DHS agencies are eager to deprive you of your children and grandchildren even though many of you NEVER abused or neglected the children. (Reports are that only 25% of the children taken into custody are actually abused and/or neglected in their home. That means 75% of the DHS cases are solely to benefit the DHS agency!)

It is a fact that DHS agencies abuse and neglect children. It's their job! DHS employees (caseworkers and contractors) get paid boo-koos to abuse and neglect children they take into custody and permanently damage! Their contractors (physicians) prescribe mind-altering experimental drugs and/or counseling. These children walk around like zombees in the foster home and in their school. It's called Child Protection Services!

Be aware that there are other funds available to counties when they put little children in foster incerceration. This is not the only federal funding stream DHS agencies are after.

The following information was released by the ACF in October 2004. The report is entitled "Bounty Payments for Adoptions 2003" and is found under www.fightcps.com.

Adoption Incentive Program FY 2003 Earning Year:
Alabama ($376,000),
Alaska ($116,000),

*TOTAL BONUS MONEY: $17,896,000

*Note: Some states aren't represented on THIS list because they received multi-million dollar payments in the program during previous years. California is the biggest adoption money pig of all. This program only pays for an INCREASE in the number of adoptions from the year before.

The report goes further by adding, "The Adoption Incentive Program, which was revised and strengthened last December (2002) by the Bush Administration, for the first time adds a focus on the growing proportion of children aged nine years old and above who are in dire n eed of adoption before they "age out" of foster care. Two key changes which strengthen states' adoption and child welfare services are: An additional bonus of $4,000 to states for each child aged nine and above adopted from the public child welfare system. This is on top of the current $4,000 provided for each child and on top of the $2,000 for each special needs child adopted; AND The threshold to receive incentives has been reset based on the number of adoptions in FY 2002, making states that reached their highest number of adoptions in the earlier years of the program more likely to qualify for a bonus.

"President Bush has worked hard to increase the number of adoptions so more child can grow up in safe, stable and loving homes," said Dr. Wade F. Horn, HHS assistant secretary for children and families. "Today's grants continue this Administration's efforts to promote adoption from the foster care system so no child will be left behind."

Currently, there are 129,000 children in the public child welfare system waiting to be adopted. Of this number, approximately 50,000 children each year are placed into adoptive families. Approximately 19,000 children "age out" of the foster care system without ever having the opportunity to be adopted. The adoption bonus is in addition to a webside previously launched by ACF (http://www.adoptuskids.org) - aimed at the recruitment and retention of adoptive families for children in the foster care system.


CHILD WELFARE SERVICES IS OUT OF CONTROL!!!
The Libertarian Party wants smaller government and elimination of federal agencies such as the one that funds the CPS harassment of families ... HHS. Take the federal money away from CPS and mos of the problems will cease!

WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES (Senators and Representatives). Ask that they RESCIND the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997.

I wrote to ALL of my US Congressional staff. Mr. Istook replied stating that the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 is a STATE law. YIP! I find it very strange that the Clinton Administration enacted the ASFA but it's considered a STATE matter. I will attempt to help Mr. Istook understand what the ASFA is so he can see it IS his job to get the ASFA rescinded. My! My!

The ASFA and Social Security are administered by each STATE? I don't believe so! We pay our Social Security (FICA taxes) to the federal government.

PLEASE WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN. Hopefully they'll KNOW that Social Security and the ASFA are federally mandated. I've been around a few years and have NEVER heard that Social Security (FICA) including the ASFA are STATE enactments! WOW, do we have problems!!!

If the Social Security Fund (FICA Taxes) and the AFSA are mandated by each STATE, I wonder why there is a Congressional Study of the Social Security Fund. Why would President Bush announce that our SS Fund is in trouble if it's a STATE matter?

A revision of this message will be mailed to US Representative from Oklahoma, Mr. Istook, to help him understand that SS and the ASFA are NOT state mandated laws. They are FEDERAL.

A revision of this message will be mailed to US Representative from Oklahoma, Mr. Istook, to help him understand that SS and the ASFA are NOT state mandated laws. They are FEDERAL.

To those readers who say the reason these children were taken into OKDHS custody has NOT been told ... YOU need to read the entire report that some readers call rantings. If you do, you'll find they were taken into OKDHS/CPS custody because FIVE boys sexually assaulted a little six-year-old speech-handicapped Kindergarten girl on the school bus and the sexual assault made this grandmother VERY angry!

On October 1, 2001, I delivered a letter to the school principal asking that she help protect little children riding school buses. The next day, October 2, 2001, these two children were taken into protective custody because my letter was mishandled by several school employees. I didn't know they were taken into DHS custody until I returned to the school that afternoon to transport the children back to my home!

Now they've been adopted to a non-biological family, The adoptive parents changed all three of the children's names at the age of 8 and 11. They are failing their school work and OKDHS reports they're doing wonderful! The Final Adoption was in March 2004. Next year, OKDHS will get $12,000 Bonus Money from the AFSA because they were less than twelve years old. In addition, the adoptive home will be paid $350-1,500 for each of these children until they're eighteen years old ... or twenty-two if they're still in school.

The bus incident was 'investigated' by DHS to the extent that more children were taken into OKDHS custody. While talking to the parents and grandmother of these children, the OKDHS Intake Worker said, "What is going on out there at that school? I've got to go out there and pick up FIVE more children!" That's the FIVE boys who sexually assaulted my six-year-old speech-handicapped Kindergarten granddaughter. It's called OKDHS Child Protection Services.

Oh! Larisa! I'm so sorry! These horrors are so hard on little children!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

What a shame, Larisa. I kept my grandchildren at my house because their mother was depressed. She needed to go to the doctor and get some help. My son and I as well as members of her family tried to get her to go get some help. She refused! The mother NEVER called to check on her children! She didn't have time. She had TV programs she wanted to watch. In fact, My grandson said, "Grandma, why don't YOU marry my daddy? You love us!" I was very sad when I heard him make that statement.

Larisa, the primary problem for the past eight years is the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. If the DHS agency can figure a way to keep your children in the home of your mother-in-law or a foster home for 13 months and NOT let you visit with them, OKDHS will go for removing your parenting rights. Then, they MAY adopt them to your mother-in-law so they'll get the BONUS MONEY! They want your children REALLY bad! Both can be considered disabled so they'll get $6,000 for each on of them. Then, your mother-in-law or whoever THEY decide to adopt the children to, will get Adoption Subsidies of $350-1,000 per month until the children are eighteen years old ... or twenty-two years old if they're still in school. Their reports will say, "They're doing wonderful in that home!"

The ASFA should be RESCINDED to save children and families AND to save Social Security! Read the ASFA and you'll see that DHS agencies are being paid BONUS MONEY and AWARDS for adopting children! Caseworkers are humiliated by agency directors, managers, supervisors and EVEN their own co-workers when they try to return the children to their home. If the children are returned to their parents, after they've completed all of their stipulated requirements, they DO NOT get the BONUS MONEY. They'll figure out some way to keep your children for 13-22 months. Detachment and Attachment Disorders are their favorite diagnoses. They can have their contractor prescribe Paxil or Prozac (experimental drugs) and add a contracting counselor so reports will be, "They're too confused to see their mother or their daddy!"

We need to look into filing a Class Act Lawsuit against these abusers. Remember that their only reason DHS stops visits is to emotionally disable them and diagnose them with Detachment Disorders so they can prescribe mind-altering drugs and mind-altering counselors. It's NOT in the interest of what is BEST forthe child! It's ALL about MONEY!

Larisa, be sure to keep careful written records of everything your caseworkers say and do! Take a witness with you each time you go for a hearing! EVERY time you are allowed in a hearing, try to have a court recorder in there with you. Here in Oklahoma, it costs $20 to have a court recorder in the courtroom. READ the court report once it's transcribed. The court reporter DOES make errors and/or omissions! You should be able to READ. Your lawyer is given a copy of it. Be sure to keep a copy of your receipts.

Remember, too, Larisa, that your congressman can read anything in your case. They have free access anytime they make a request. Talk to your state legislator. Call members of the Child Welfare Committee in our state legislature. They need to KNOW what is going on inside OKDHS halls! I'm sure some of the BONUS MONEY goes to legislators who support OKDHS.

Keep track of all the lies the caseworkers tell you. They need to have felony charges filed on them as in Florida, Washington and more in other states. Once they're convicted for lying and placed behind bars with the ones they've lied ABOUT, maybe children will be safe.

Our case file is BRIM FULL of lies! (1) We're full blood Kiowa Indian, (2) The father smokes cigarettes in a hose in a pipe, (3) The grandmother has THREE sons, (4) The grandmother went to the school and talked to her grandson, (5) Fictitious witness, Susan Rhodes, was a good friend who went to school with the mother and Andy attended college with the father. I wonder how they knew to call Ms. Giwa. The addresses are vacant lots and phone numbers are disconnected or have OKDHS series prefixes. (6) Children's bones were broken while living in TWO different foster homes, (7) Children are doing wonderful! (8) Children are confused!

When my grandson ran out of medicine, OKDHS called ME for more. When I told them I couldn't get any more EVEN from the school's supply, the Medication Dispensing agent said, "You just want your grandchildren to suffer!" The prescribing physician REQUIRES that he sees the child in his office before he renews the prescription.

One note in the file says, "Watch out for the old lady!"

Larisa, try your best to work with your mother-in-law. Remember, your mother-in-law cares far more for your children than any foster or prospective adoptive home could ever care for them. Count it as a favor that she CARES for your children! See if you can help her fix some meals or bake your kids some cookies or do something to let her know you appreciate what she's doing for your children. You sure don't want them placed with strangers!

Write letters to your kids. Send them something at least once each week. I promised my grandchildren that I would be back to visit them the next day and I wrote 3-7 letters each week until the judge ordered ALL COMMUNICATION stopped. I used to send them pages from color books and puzzles to cut out and work on.

Then, the caseworker lied when she told the judge that I went to the school to visit my grandson and 'told him what to say and what NOT to say.' ALL visits ... ALL contact was stopped because of OKDHS liars! I have a letter from the school proving she lied. I gave a copy of the school's letter to the homestudy caseworker. When the OKDHS adoptions caseworker came to my house to do the home study, he didn't tell me that my grandchildren's bones were broken. The contracted caseworker from North Care told me!

When I worked for OKDHS, we were required to jot a note down on each child's record. I did NOT write lies in their records! I tried to make EVERY comment something creative and positive and always truthful. Like: "She finished her homework early this afternoon. The cookies she baked were delicious and she learned to be accurate with her measurements. She enjoyed sharing the cookies with other residents in the home."

Children need to have POSITIVE 'warm fuzzies' every day! We like to hear people say nice things about us. They lift our spirits. Children are the same. They learn much more when you use positive corrective measures! Threats are not good. If the child breaks his/her pencil, have him/her sharpen a used pencil and write a POSITIVE sentence several times according to the age of the child. Like, "This pencil was made to write with. I will be careful with my pencil so see that it doesn't get broken again." (10-50 times) Positive discipline will improve penmanship, comprehension, spelling and discipline. What could be better and he/she'll KNOW the reason he/she was disciplined.

Larisa, I find it interesting that you and your husband were allowed to take parenting classes and anger management classes. Those classes give you some really good information. In the spring of 2001, Ms. Giwa told my son AND me that DHS did NOT have any such thing as Parenting Assistance Classes. She said, "You need to move out of the house, take your children with you and get a divorce or you'll be charged with depriving your children!"

When the lawyer was able to get a copy of the KIDS files, he found in Ms. Giwa's report that she said, "I sent a letter to the parents telling them to take Parenting Assistance Classes and Anger Management Classes." Then, when my son enrolled in the Parenting Assistance Class, he was ordered to stop attending the class! I think it's interesting that Ms. GIWA has never been brought in to testify. Neither has the lying caseworker!

Remember, Larisa, the Bible says, "Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you! Bless (make happy) those who curse you and pray for them who despitefully use you!" (Luke 6:27-38.)

When you get a chance, read all of the verses. Psalms 92:6-15 is one of my favorites. Psalm 92:12 says "The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree; he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon."

Larisa, Palm trees grow tall. Their leaves wave with the breezes flowing past them. Sometimes the winds are so great that their branches are broken. They usually grow new branches to take the place of the damaged ones. A palm tree is TALL and STRAIGHT! They can 'see' what's going on all around. That's the way believers are. We see what's going on but like the palm tree, there's little we can do besides just stand tall and try to protect what is beneath us.

I like to watch the frail young limbs at the tip top of cedar trees. They sway with any slight breeze but they usually recover when the wind subsides. The wind makes them stronger! These OKDHS 'winds' will make YOU stronger! Look for the good in it. It's hard sometimes. Anger doesn't help you! Your anger HELPS OKDHS workers!

Another thing, if your DHS caseworker recommends that you have a psychological examination (Who doesn't facing their horrors?), BE SURE that you find one who is NOT paid by the DHS agency! DHS psychologists are PAID to say what DHS wants them to say. They're afraid to tell the truth for fear their money will stop flowing from taking DHS cases. They get $300-700 for giving the exams and then another $500-1,000 for testifying 'their' findings.

I hope I've helped you, Larisa, and others who have posted their story in this site. The accusers can say what they wish. We KNOW what they're doing. God is the Judge! These children are His children! (Luke 17:2) "It IS better that they hang a millstone around their neck and be dropped into the deepest sea, than to injure even one of His little ones."

DHS agencies are taking Social Security under. They're paying adoptive parents to help them emotionally disable little children. Refusing to allow parents see their children is nothing but their effort to Detach them from their loved ones. It's done to ATTACH them to the foster parents. Those who love the children the most and want what is TRUELY best for the child are left out of the picture. Adopting a child is BEST for DHS!

DHS's favorite children to take into custody are those who have a disability of some sort AND those who are less than NINE years old. If they take a child into custody when they're TWELVE years old, the child is given a choice as to whether he/she wants to be adopted or not. Of course, a counselor can convince even the twelve-year-old child that it's best for them to be adopted. The adoptive home gets bundles of money! The DHS agency gets bundles of money, too!

DHS caseworkers SAY they have too many cases per caseworker. I worked for OKDHS! It's just another of their lies! If they'd use the BONUS MONEY to reduce the workload, they'd have money enough for one caseworker per child. Of course, if they pay the case worker $100,000+ per year (as was reported), it's no wonder they have too many cases per worker. If they'd stop paying student Interns, they'd have less cases. If they helped parents and worked for what is BEST for the child, they'd hve less cases.

Take a look around you and see how many companies contract with DHS agencies. All professionals 'work' for them. Doctors, lawyers, counselors, clothing industry, food industry. If they think a child is neglected or abuses, they are required to call the hot line and report it. If they don't report it, they stand a chance of being fired from their position.

#37 Consumer Comment

Screwed over too!

AUTHOR: Larisa - (U.S.A.)

L from Oklahoma, In 2003 I was married happily with 2 children, and we were poor but happy, living in Oklahoma City. Well, my mother in law decided she wanted my children. So she called DHS against her own son, and said that he had "abused" our son. Our son fell of the trampiline at my brothers house. The caseworker showed up at our kids daycare exaimining him, then came to our house, grabbed my husband and said in a gruff voice. "You're coming with me now". And my husband told him to tell him what he wanted. He had already made up his mind, without asking us, that my son had been abused. Well then, He asked me why I was covering up my husbands abuse? I said That I was not covering ANYthing up, but that my son fell off the trampilene. He told my husband that he needed to go through anger management and parenting classes. My husband did not do that because he had no need to! Well a month later, we thought the case was closed, my mother in law asked if the kids could come over to her house. My kids wanted to go by Nana's house. So we dropped the kids off, and the next day, she refused to let pick up the kids. We called the police, they asked if we had dropped the kids off and I said Yes. They said it was not kidnapping, and it was a "Civil" issue. Then I called DHS and asked if they had taken my kids away, they said NO. Then this caseworker came by my house and asked if I would sign a temp guardianship paper to my kids.To do "what was best" for them. I said No way. He said if I did not he could take custody from me altogether. I stuck by my word, and did not sign it. Well, this caseworker also told me that my mother in law could file for temp guardianship and say all kinds of accuations against me and my husband, and that she did not have to let me know when the court date was, and that if I called in, that the courts would not inform me of the date either. Well that is exactly what happened! How would he know unless he was in on it?? The crazy thing is DHS never ever came and took my kids literally. Now my mother in law STILL has my kids. She now gets SSI for my son because they say he has Goldenhar's syndrome, and my daughter is going to therapy 2 times a week...she is 4. And she is also on Rittalin for being ADHD. Plus my mother in law gets food stamps, and tanf. They said there is a welfare rule that states no matter how much a granparent makes, they get food stamps and tanf to help with the expenses. They also get free daycare while she sits at home and does not have a job. Also, a certain juvenile judge in Oklahoma County, the one who signed for the temp guardianship was upset to find out that a restraining order was filed against me preventing me from seeing the kids for 2 months before a judge forced my mother in law to let me know when the court date was. The judge said he saw no reason for the kids to be out of our care. He then told me there was nothing he could do until I got a lawyer and had to fight against the temp guardianship. I then got a lawyer through legal aid. Biggest mistake ever. The lawyer did NOTHING to help us. We took parenting classes and anger management, and then we were "supposed" to get the kids back. Well then they said we needed to a bunch more things. We did everything! WE were supposed to have them back a year ago. We are still fighting! And on top of everything else, I have to pay child support, 50 percent of my check or 350 dollars,and my husband does too! That is 700 dollars a month we have to pay. Plus, They gave had only given me supervised visitation, when no abuse was reported! Well lucky me, I had to move for finacial reasons to ohio, and my mother in law did too (where we are from) and the case got tranferred. But because Oklahoma refused to transfer the case to Ohio, we had to all agree to drop the guardianship, but I had to agree to let her have guardianship until a new court date could be made. Oh yes, she also missed a court date that was "supposed" to give us guardianship back, and they did not show up so we were automatically get the kids back. Well, their lawyer came up with some lame excuse and they got away with it, and the guardianship STILL in place. That is Oklahoma for you! Also, My friend in Ohio has had all her children taken away from her because she is "emotionally" not able to care for kids. But yet the woman has never been in a mental facility, and is only on meds for depression. Because they took her kids away! She can't have any kids without children's services coming to the hospital to take her baby away. Their reason? She had her previous kids taken away. That is their ONLY reason! Luckily, she is now working with a parent's rights group. I am glad to hear you have your grandchildren's interests at heart. I am glad you are not a grandmother like my mother in law who is like a DHS worker..only having kids to take money. My kids go to therapists and doctors so much since she has had them, it is sad.Oklahoma is one of the worst states out there for children's services. People in Ohio don't believe that my kids were kidnapped legally and the cops went right along with it!!

DHS Caseworkers and Contractors are PAID to Abuse and Neglect Children AND Destroy Families!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

"It is better to tie a millstone around your neck and be dropped into the deepest sea than to injure even ONE of His little ones."

Sorry, B, Julie, Stacey and others who believe in what DHS is doing to children and families. I'm sorry Trina, A, and P that you, too, have suffered at the hands of DHS/CPS. What a shame!

I KNOW there are some DHS caseworkers and foster parents who really CARE about children and families. I met ONE OKDHS caseworker and KNOW a few foster families!

There was at least ONE caseworker in Oklahoma County DHS tried to help children and families! That ONE OKDHS permanent placement caseworker said as she was leaving the courtroom, "I'm going to try to see if I can take your case and return the children to your home." THAT CASEWORKER WAS NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE THE CASE.

Caseworkers and contractors retain their positions if their greatest desire is to further DHS's goals to abuse and/or neglect another child, remove parenting rights and adopt the children to NON-Biological Families!

I wonder why Oklahoma doesn't have something resembling "NANNY 9-1-1" where a child advocate works closely with the family and guides them through difficult times? It's a growing process for the children and the whole family as they learn what they need to do to repair the family. Children are not delivered with instructions so programs such as "NANNY 9-1-1 can benefit those needing help.

If DHS agents KNOW that taking a child into custody is NOT a good experience for anyone, why do they continue to take them into what THEY call Protected Custody? Why can't help be given in the home?

The only help my son or I was given by OKDHS caseworker GIWA was, "Move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce! If you don't move out, take the children and get a divorce, you will be charged with depriving the child!" (The children were already living with the grandmother so the father would have more time to find the help his wife needed.)

DHS custody is NOT a good experience for the family, the children or the foster family! It IS a good experience for DHS caseworkers and their Agencies!

DHS agencies stop visits with the family so the children can ATTACH to the foster family and develop a 'Detachment Disorder' for DHS contractors to deal with. When the child has mental or emotional problems with the "Detachment" process, they're prescribed mind-altering drugs like PROZAC, PAXIL and other drugs. The DHS counseling contractor calls the 'detachment process' confusion! They report, "The children are too confused to visit members of their family!"

Our foster children were returned to their parent after about ten years in custody. We worked with the children and their Christian Counselor to help them adapt to the move. I was teary eyed for several weeks following their return to the parent. The children continue to have contact with us and I'm so greatful for the continued relationship.

NO child wants to lose all contact with their biological family but DHS agencies enforce detachment by USING their foster parent 'attachment' process.

I've also found that the DHS "Reunification" process is nil. The ONLY way a reunification can be established is through court order and only after the parent AND child request the reunification. What oversight is given over this reunification procedure? Is the family told that the child is trying to make contact?

The young man that I tried to help remembers some of his younger siblings. One brother was about a year younger and another was about two years younger. He remembers playing games with them when he was living in the home. I'm sure the mother couldn't care for the younger children AND deal with DHS and the oldest boy. I suppose that's the reason ALL children in the family are taken into custody now!

It takes thousands of dollars to deal with DHS. Very few young families have thousands of dollars rolling around their house to use to fight DHS! Lawyers ask, "Are there other members of the family who can pay the legal expenses?"

I'm puzzled that the OKDHS agency having his records will do NOTHING to help the young man find his younger siblings OR any other family member! He recalls his parents' names and birthdate as well as the names of his siblings and the names of some of his other biological relatives. Why can't the family be unified?

Why is it so important to destroy all biological family relationships? Once a child is placed in permanent care or adopted, DHS agents order ALL contact with the biological family stop! That's ordered so that they can BOND with the placement family! How totally sad!

The great-grandmother to these children is 94 years of age, living in a retirement center, but is NOT permitted to have any contact with her great-grandchildren! WHY? ALL contact with the biological family is STOPPED!

What a shame that she may never get to see her great-grandchildren again! She used to visit with the children at least two times each week. When the children ask to see her, their thoughts are 'redirected' to another subject!

ALL CONTACT STOPPED! That's called OKDHS Protective Custody! They're being protected from their 94-year-old great-grandmother, too! Aren't you proud of DHS agencies' child protection services?

This OKDHS/CPS case originated from the sexual assault of the six-year-old kindergarten girl on the school bus and the teacher finding in her 'investigation' of the school bus incident that the father gave the children baths! The children were taken into 'protective' custody on October 2, 2001.

The OKDHS Intake Worker said, "A father should NEVER give his child a bath! A father should NEVER dust bath powder on his child! It is NOT acceptable!"

Yes, you're exactly right! I may be 'ranting' and 'raving' over this case. This grandmother feels this family has been inhumanely treated by OKDHS/CPS!

Put youself in my spot and see if YOU would celebrate if your ONLY grandchildren were adopted to a NON-BIOLOGICAL FAMILY because older children sexually assaulted the kindergarten girl on the school bus!

I dare say that you would NOT want your own kindergarten child sexually assaulted on a school bus and not speak up about it! Little children should be protected from assaulters! Instead, the assaulters are protected! The little assaulted children are taken into custody and adopted for BONUS MONEY!

Remember Luke 17:2, "It is better to tie a millstone around your neck and be dropped into the deepest sea than to injure even ONE of His little ones."

CPS workers in the State of Texas are overworked, underpaid and cannot make their case loads

AUTHOR: Stacey - (U.S.A.)

Thank you B

I am sick of the rantings and ravings of "L" - My question is this - what is the reason the child ( or children) were removed from the home?? Never stated - CPS workers in the State of Texas are overworked, underpaid and cannot make their case loads - Before GW Bush became President - CPS asked him for 2 Million dollars to add more case workers - He gave them $200,000 - thanks! as an individual who has worked with Victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and other Violent Crimes the pay does not allow you to live on - Yes we are overloaded, stressed out and underpayed - Hey L - you work 3 weeks on call for $800 dollars a month!
Enough said from me - I got into Social Work (yes you have to be licensed by the state) to help yet CPS in the State of Texas does not require you to have a Social Work Degree because guess what! The job sucks -

Waste of Tax Money!

In Arkansas, the saying is that if you abuse your children, you don't have to worry about DHS (CPS), but if you don't, they will snatch your kids away in a heartbeat.

With that said... Long story short... my step-son's mother abuses him. She was charged with felony assault on a minor at one point (only a felony because my step-son was only 4 at the time). So... the prosecuting attorney felt there was enough evidence to charge her, but DHS didn't find there to be enough evidence to substantiate the report because they said it was a "custody issue" (although we already had custody of him). At one point, there was enough evidence for the Judge to order visitation to be supervised, but DHS didn't think there was enough evidence to substantiate the case. But then, he had bronchitis twice in one year and missed 13 days of school because of it (with doctor's excuse). DHS found that to be educational neglect and my name and my husband's name were placed on the Registry for Child Maltreatment. Because of that, the abusive mother got temporary custody. We had the final hearing 3 months later. During that 3 months, the SCHOOL AND HIS COUNSELOR both reported abuse by his mother 5 times!!! One of the times, the social worker went to the school to interview him (due to a report of a swollen and bruised thumb that he stated was caused by his mother pulling his thumb back because he grabbed the wrong color). When they got into the room, my step-son asked "Are you from DHS?" The worker told him yes. He said, "You have to see this" and dropped his pants and underwear and pulled his shirt up. There was absolutely NO skin color on the backside of his body. He was solid bruise. He had two scratch marks on his neck. My step-son told the DHS worker that his mother held him down by the neck and spanked him "for a really long time". The social worker decided to place him in a children's shelter and contacted my husband. We had to drive 14 hours to get there. When we got there, we learned that the social worker "was no longer employed" with them and that my step-son would not be going to a children's shelter because there was no broken skin on his back and the scratches on his neck were "transient marks", whatever that means!!! We contacted one of our State Senators, who then contacted the main DHS office in Little Rock. Someone from DHS in Little Rock a few days later. They were unable to locate the pictures the worker had taken or his reports. They reinvestigated, but my step-son had already been threatened by that point and would only stare at the worker. The origional social worker testified in the final court, as did his pediatrician, the school nurse, the teacher, the counselor, and a police officer... all saying he was abused by his mother. Because our names were on the registry for child maltreatment and hers wasn't, she retained custody. He is still abused, but we are court ordered NOT to report anything. We had not reported any of the ones during that three month period. Mandated Reporters did! A black eye was reported, the swollen and bruised thumb, bruised cheekbone, rope marks on his wrists, and busted lips. DHS? I say they are a waste of tax-payers money.

I have to agree completely with Julie. It is very apparent that you have some major emotional or mental issues and your comments are filled with half truths and exaggerations. I actually took the time to go into the OKDHS website (okdhs.org) and look up their policy and procedures. I also took the time to go into the state of Oklahoma's court network (oscn.net) and read up on the title 10 statutes that address CPS and DHS's responsibility within the CPS system. What I found is that the OKDHS policy pretty well mirrors the state laws. I found nothing even close to the outlandish policies that you allege that OKDHS goes by.

L it is obvious that you feel that you were wronged by the CPS system and you have the right to state your case.

What? Did I Read That Right? Where is all that BONUS MONEY going?

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The report seemed to say that DHS is given BONUS MONEY from our Social Security Earned Benefits Fund for reducing the number of babies born out of wedlock each year, too! EACH reduction gives DHS agencies $8,000?

Does that mean that if one year 500 babies were reported as born OUT OF WEDLOCK and the next year only 100 babies were reported as born OUT OF WEDLOCK, the DHS agency would be given 500 babies less -100 babies born out of wedlock = 400 babies they're getting bonus money for reducing the number of babies born out of wedlock? That's $8,000 per baby or $3,200,000 for those 400 babies?

Where is all that BONUS MONEY going? If that's the amount given ($8,000) to DHS for EACH reduction of one child, why don't they have one caseworker per child taken into custody? Where is all that money going? Doesn't the state, through federal and state funds, budget the expenses of DHS agencies funded by each state? Where is all the BONUS MONEY? Surely the information was not correct! I'll read it again!

My apology, Julie, but I still don't understand...

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Julie, I don't understand why you're offended with me for reporting the truth about OKDHS. People need to KNOW what is going on so they can help stop the abuse and neglect! Your stance is the reason I felt you were an employee of OKDHS. Sorry for the error!

I'm glad you have chosen a respectable profession. I chose the profession of teaching children.

My deceased husband and I were foster parents for the Baptist Home in OKC for several years. After my husband passed away, I sought employment with OKDHS solely because I love children and want what is BEST for them. My employment with OKDHS was before the ASFA was enacted.

If I were still employed as a Youth Guidance Specialist by OKDHS, I would be among those employees who changed professions rather than emotionally disable a child or destroy a family in order to comply with the BONUS stipulations of the AFSA!

Supreme Court Judges J. Baxter and J. Kennard know what is going on in the Department of Social Services in California. Supreme Court of California Case Number S030556 (also Court of Appeal Numbers D014729 and D015741 and J147148 and A37229)in Jasmon v. Gavin reveals their insight in the child abuse and neglect inside of California's Department of Social Services. Judge Baxter was kind when he called DSS abuse and neglect "mishandling" a case. Oklahoma County Juvenile Judge Stuart underatands, too! He said, "It looks like the Department of Human Services has failed this family!"

Julie of Guthrie, OK Has REAL Problems With Knowing the Truth! Sorry 'bout that!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

So sorry, Julie, that you don't want to face the truth about what is going on in DHS agencies! There are thousands and thousands of other parents across Oklahoma and the nation that KNOW, first hand, that OKDHS intentionally abuses and neglects children for BONUS MONEY.

You think it's fine for DHS caseworkers to fabricate stories in order to be assured of a job? You think that it's fine for caseworkers to intermingle files? You think it's fine for a caseworker to lie to the judge? You think it's fine that the Adoptions and Safe Families and subsequent legal maneuvers promote child abuse and neglect?

Are you happy that these children's bones were broken while they were in two different foster homes? Are you happy that they've been adopted so that OKDHS can get the BONUS MONEY for abusing and neglecting them? Are you happy that the Adoptive Family will receive Adoption Incentives until the children are grown? Surely, you MUST have better sense than to agree with what DHS agencies are doing to little children!

You can call it rant, if you like. That's fine with me. I call it making DHS abuse and neglect known to the public so that people will KNOW what is happening to our future generation FOR BONUS MONEY from our EARNED Social Security Benefit Fund!

Julie, it's evident that you are an employee of OKDHS! Aren't you proud to be a part of such a 'caring' organization? I used to be proud that I was an employee, too, but that was before the enactment of the ASFA.

It IS all about MONEY! Isn't it, Julie? If you weren't being promised BONUS MONEY from your agency, for promoting adoptions, would you still defend DHS agencies' abuse and neglect endeavors?

If it was YOUR child whose bones were broken while in a foster home, would YOU sit back and let it go without letting people KNOW?

Read what DHS is doing to children and families. One place it's found is in Case Number S030556 of the Supreme Court of California (Gavin O. and DHS v, Jasmon O.) appeal. California Supreme Court Justices Baxter and Kennard KNOW what is going on in DHS agencies!

Julie from Guthrie, OK ... You don't have the WHOLE truth!

AUTHOR: - ()

Julie, OKDHS has too much money and too much power over children and families! I'm glad you were allowed to keep your child. More than 2,000 parents IN OKLAHOMA were not that lucky! Look at the number of children taken into custody each month just in Oklahoma County and Logan County. You are a mighty lucky person! Be careful or your bragging about keeping your child will be reversed. Your case IS in the DHS records but YOU are not allowed to see those records except through the order of a judge! You MAY be next to hear a caseworker say, "Your Honor, the parenting rights should be removed from this mother. This child should be adopted to the foster parents!" I wonder if you'll say their salary is too low, they have too many children in custody and there are not enough workers.

Julie, OKDHS combined a Kiowa Indian case with our case. The judge said, "I cannot hear any of your case until I have a representative from the Kiowa Indian Tribe in the courtroom with you!" The judge held the Indian cards up for all to see and said, "The father signed this sheet of paper stating he is full blood Kiowa Indian! I must have a representative from the Kiowa Tribe in this courtroom!" My lawyer argued with the judge for several minutes with her insisting that she was correct. The father repeatedly told the judge that he was NOT of Kiowa Indian descent. Then, my lawyer said, "Your honor, these people say they are NOT Kiowa Indian! Maybe you should look at the case records in your folder and see if all information is correct that's in your file!"

I think the court records were separated BUT the accusations from the Kiowa Indian child are still COMBINED in our case file! OUR copy of the case record states that the child in custody said, "My daddy smokes tiny cigarettes in a hose in a pipe and I don't like for my daddy to smoke those tiny cigarettes!"

OUR case record ALSO states, "The grandmother visited the school her grandson attended and told him what to say and do." It's a TOTAL lie but the judge believed the lying caseworker! The kinship foster mother called the grandmother and told her that the teacher had called to tell her that the boy's life was in danger in that class. The teacher told the foster mother that she may be calling to have her come to the school and pick the boy up to protect him from harm by other much larger students. The foster mother was baffled with concern so she called the grandmother.

The grandmother told the kinship foster mother that if she could get approval, she would have lunch with him in an effort to let the threatening bigger students know that others besides the two teachers were concerned about life threatening peer activities in the classroom. The foster mother called the caseworker and was told that the grandmother, with whom the child had been living for several months, was NOT allowed to visit her grandchild.

The grandmother's hands were tied. She worried that her grandson might be severely injured or killed by the bigger 'mentally disturbed' students in the classroom. Then, during the next hearing, the caseworker said, "Your honor, this grandmother went to the school and visited with her grandson. She told him what to say and what to do."

THE JUDGE BELIEVED THE LYING CASEWORKER! (The grandmother has a letter from the school proving the caseworker lied!) During that hearing, the judge turned to the grandmother and said, "You are NEVER to visit with your grandson! You are NEVER to give your grandson a gift! You are NEVER to call or write to your grandson! You are NEVER to know what school your grandson attends! If I find you have done any of these things, I will hold you in contempt of court!"

The children were taken into custody as a result of the grandmother reporting that her speech handicapped granddaughter had been sexual assaulted on the school bus.

Julie, these two children have suffered severe abuse and neglect by those underpaid, overworked, well-educated and caring DHS caseworkers. Do YOU think if they were paid $2,500 per month and given only ONE case to work, they'd do any better than now with the ASFA still in effect? Absolutely NOT! As long as the Adoption Bonuses and Adoption Incentives are promoted and freely passed out to DHS agencies, the children will NOT have what is BEST for them! DHS WILL have the BEST! At least they should have the BEST with all the BONUS MONEY they're given to dispose of! LOOK at the ASFA BONUS MONEY reports on the internet!

Julie, this grandmother was employed by OKDHS BEFORE the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 was enacted by the Clinton Administration. Youth Guidance Specialists, as some caregivers are called, were allowed to HELP children. We were not told to do anything you could do to adopt another child so we'd receive BONUS MONEY and AWARDS from Social Security Funds!

Because our priority was on helping the children in our care, my former co-workers and I worked diligently to help the residents in the group home learn things they'd needed to know about life. If we had broken any of their bones, we would have been prosecuted! It's OK, according the OKDHS records for foster parents to break the children's bones or allow their bones to be broken while in their care. OKDHS reports that the children are doing wonderful in the home where their bones were broken. It puzzles me that a child would be reportedly doing wonderful in the home where their bones were broken!

I wonder, Julie, if you were a caseworker, would YOU lie to the judge? Would you tell parents to get a divorce? Would you tell children that their parents never wanted to see them again? Would YOU use the excuse, "I don't get enough salary!" "I have too many cases!" "I work here because I love children!"

OKDHS, according to reports, (1) has too many cases for the number of caseworkers, (2) takes too long to train new caseworkers (to lie) and (3) can't figure out what to do about the father of a child! READ IT FOR YOURSELF! IT'S WRITTEN IN THE OKDHS REPORT ABOUT COMPLIANCE WITH THE ASFA!

This grandmother could not believe it when she was told that there was no such thing as Parenting Assistance Classes! That's the same thing her son was told when he called OKDHS asking for help for his family. It's mighty strange that six months later, after the father attended several appointments with a private Family Therapist, his lawyer found where the caseworker wrote in the KIDS file, "A letter was sent to the parents telling them about Parenting Assistance Classes and about Anger Management Classes!"

Did the caseworker not have time to dial the father's SEVEN DIGIT phone number because she had too much work to do and was underpaid? It would seem that the ethical thing to do would be to call the father or grandmother and say, "I've located the classes you asked for. I'm mailing you a letter telling you how to get involved in the classes." Or, better yet, why couldn't she give him the information over the phone? It's strange that she SUPPOSEDLY had the time to write a letter and even write a note in the KIDS file about the letter but didn't have time to call either the father or grandmother. By the way, neither the father nor grandmother have seen that letter that was supposedly written in the spring of 2001. Too much work? Not enough time? Not enough pay?

The only thing the caseworker told the father to do was, "We don't have parenting classes. You need to move out of the house! You need to take your children with you! You need to get a divorce! If you don't move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce, you will be charged with child neglect!" He moved the children out of the home several months before he called the OKDHS caseworker. He felt it was best to get help for the children's mother than to divorce her. Marriage vows say, "For better or worse, 'til death do we part!" I find it NOWHERE in the BIBLE or anywhere else except with DHS caseworkers where it teaches that if a parent is ill or needs help, the concerned parent should move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce! WHAT?????

I also find it very strange that about six months after the mother relinquished her parenting rights, OKDHS sent the father a letter stating that HE was required to pay child support the the MOTHER! What is going on in OKDHS? Too much work? Not enough employees? Not enough time to do the job they get paid $1,800 - $4,000 per month to do? Figure that one out! Seem to me that such orders are produced because of IGNORANCE, bad hiring practices or untrained trainers and could be all of these combined.

Maybe President Bush's "No Child Left Behind" program will require that students learn to read and write. Who will teach them to stop lying?

Julie, it doesn't surprise me that DHS agencies are trying to get involved in the Faith Community. Of course, their reasons are two fold. First, DHS wants to take more children into custody when a man touches a child and second, they need someone to help the children learn that Christians can be trusted. DHS employees sure can't be trusted since 1997. THAT, my friend, Julie, is FACT! That, my friend, Julie, will NOT change until the ASFA and ALL adoption promotions and incentives have been stopped. Of course, when Social Security is completely broke, the ASFA will have to stop for there will be no BONUS MONEY available.

Julie, DHS caseworkers ARE under heavy pressure to adopt children for BONUS MONEY! No, the caseworker themselves don't get ALL of the BONUS MONEY. Mr. Hendricks stated that Oklahoma's BONUS MONEY would be distributed in increments of $1,000 to MOST OKDHS employees and to OTHERS who have helped adopt the children. That includes foster parents, adoptive parents, contracting physicians, lawyers, courts, counselors and even legislators. The courts are given BONUS MONEY from our EARNED Social Security Benefits FUND for SPEEDING court activities so the children can be adopted faster.

OKDHS even has a SWIFT ADOPTIONS UNIT to speed the adoptions along! The SWIFT ADOPTIONS UNIT was established because OKDHS (1) didn't have enough employees, (2) didn't get paid high enough wages, (3) had to many children in custody, (4) couldn't figure out a way to involve the father of a child and (5) because it took too long to train new employees.

Look on the internet and see how many children OKDHS has posted the pictures to promote adoption. BUT, if you complete the paperwork through the Adoptions Website, it never gets to the Adoptions Unit. That's Fraud, Waste and Abuse of Government Funds.

Julie, in case you haven't heard, Oklahoma Statutes give the order for placing a child in DHS custody. It gives the priority as, (1) Parent(s), (2) Grandparents, (3) Person designated by the DECEASED parent(s), (4) Other family members and (5) Foster parents. a later, Oklahoma Statute changed (4) and (5) by stating the child will be adopted to foster parents ONLY when there is NO family member able and willing to adopt the child. The word "ONLY" is too hard for an OKDHS to understand its full, yet simple meaning. After all, caseworkers must have a BS degree before they're qualified to be a caseworker. They're underpaid and overworked?

When the judge ordered a home study of the grandmother's home, the home study caseworker from North Care said, "Now, OKDHS says that your grandchildren's bones were broken and that you know all about how their bones were broken!" Tears came into the grandmother and great-grandmother's eyes when the caseworker told them that the children's bones had been broken.

Finally, the grandmother dried her tears and asked, "When were their bones broken?" The caseworker looked into her case record and replied, "DHS says their bones were broken sometime between January and March of 2002!" The grandmother then replied, "How could I have known about their bones being broken during that period of time? I have not seen either of my grandchildren since October 2001!" THE CHILDREN WERE IN TWO DIFFERENT FOSTER HOMES WHEN THEIR BONES WERE BROKEN!

When the home study caseworker was leaving the grandmother's home, she handed the grandmother a "GAG ORDER" form and said, "You will not be allowed to care for any child until you sign this form."

If the grandmother had signed the "GAG ORDER" this report could NOT have been written. On one occasion, during a Grand Staffing Conference, the grandmother was told that she must LIE about the father or she would NOT be allowed to visit the children. The grandmother is not a liar so she has not been permitted to visit with the children!

The children were adopted to the home where the handicapped granddaughter was placed in December 2001. And you say, Julie, the abuse and neglect occurs because (1) there are not enough employees, (2) their pay is not sufficient and (3) there are too many cases! Do YOU think that's why the children's bones were broken in the foster homes?

Families who have children or grandchildren need to be protected FROM DHS agencies until the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and all subsequent adoption incentive programs are rescinded.

For the life of me, it is hard to figure out why the BONUS MONEY for emotionally disabling children and destroying families is paid in unlimited amounts to DHS agencies. Read the ASFA. That's actually fraud, waste and abuse of government funds!

Julie, it would be good if you would take the time to READ the reports more carefully. Then, you'll KNOW that the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and subsequent adoption promoting legislation are NOT being used as was the original intent. In fact, because children are suffering so badly as a result of the enactment of the ASFA, the Clinton Administration should be ashamed that they even enacted the ASFA. President Bush has extended the abusive ASFA through 2008 and lowered the requirements for BONUS MONEY so that more state DHS agencies can qualify for the BONUS MONEY.

AND, American citizen are being told that our Social Security Funds will be running out in the near future. Our Social Security Funds would not be in jeopardy if the ASFA and other adoption bonus and incentive initiatives were stopped.

I think a lot of this is the ranting of a person not in touch with reality.

AUTHOR: Julie - (U.S.A.)

Because, I had a child that was abused by her step mom/dad, we had documented proof, they stopped visitation with him for a year, but he just fought me in our divorce case about visitation (he tried contempt). I told my DHS worker and she said if I let my child go, I could be found guilty of neglect, but on the other hand, if I didn't let her go, I would be found guilty of contempt in family court. Needless to say, with all of the proof, because they couldn't accept the testimony of a 3 year old, they adjudicated my child as neglected (not by me, her father). He was never punished. Thankfully, they never took her from me.

But what I find so interesting about this poster, is that she thinks the cps workers are getting rich off of this, UM, no they aren't. They start out making $1800 a month, and that is with the requirement of a Bachelor's Degree. People that go into this field don't do it for the money, they do it because they care. The other problem is this, not many people care, so they don't have enough workers to handle all of the reports that come in, so then, you have workers on an $1800 a month salary, working 50-60 hours weeks and more. Frankly, for the case you go on and on about, it would seem they had ample evidence of something. Because they don't have time to chase frivolous claims, they simply don't.

The other problem is this, not many people care, so they don't have enough workers to handle all of the reports that come in, so then, you have workers on an $1800 a month salary, working 50-60 hours weeks and more. Frankly, for the case you go on and on about, it would seem they had ample evidence of something. Because they don't have time to chase frivolous claims, they simply don't.

Stacey - THE TRUTH SEEMS TO BOTHER A LOT!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Stacey it is not the children's fault that you have too few workers and too many cases! Why emotionally disable the children just because you have too few workers and too many cases? Why put children on mind-altering drugs and mind-altering counseling through your massive numbers of contractors? Don't blame YOUR problems on children and families!

Stacey, with all the BONUS MONEY that's been passed out to DHS agencies since 1997, your agency has ALL the money they need to do an excellent job. Take a look at your DHS budget! Don't blame the mishandling of your state's DHS budget on too few workers and too many cases. It's mishandling of DHS Budgeted Funds AND mishandling of the BONUS MONEY your state has received from implementing the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. OUR Earned Social Security Benefit Fund is being GIVEN FREELY IN AN UNLIMITED AMOUNT to state DHS agencies.

Ask for a copy of the Texas State Budget for DHS. See if you can find the budget for YOUR county. Then, after reviewing the budget and finance report, ask where the BONUS MONEY is posted. You'll likely find that the BONUS MONEY is hidden so you won't be able to find it.

Stacey, I have no doubt that SOME DHS caseworkers try very hard to do a good job. Their job would be much easier and much better for children and families if the BONUS MONEY was not such a heavy influence!

I'm sure that YOU aren't aware that caseworkers are influenced by the ASFA but how many times have you been told in staff meetings ... Do a better job! Do anything you can to Adopt the children. Oh, no! You're not told that your agency wants you to do a speedier job because it will bring BONUS MONEY from Social Security! No, they're just trying to "encourage" and "challenge" you. Pressure on caseworkers, like yourself, is heavy to do everything you can possibly do to SAVE(?) a child. That means, "Lie to judges!" "Lie to the family!" "Don't tell the family that they need to go to a Parenting Assistance Class!" Just simply, "Take the child into custody no matter what you have to do!" Keep the child in a foster home. Move them from one foster home to another. Move them from school to school. Help the fail classes! Convince the children that what you're doing is BEST for them!

If the parent or a relative brings a gift to the child, take it away from them. Put it in a garage sale. Tell the parent or other relative that the gift was lost or stolen. THAT'S what Oklahoma County DHS does.

Read my earlier report where I defined the lies that have been posted in this case. Try to convince ME that it's not for the BENEFIT of OKDHS! The ASFA benefits DHS agencies. READ it! It states, the BONUS MONEY will be given in unlimited amounts to DHS agencies. That money comes from OUR Social Security Benefit FUND. NOW, you know why it is being reported that the Social Security Fund is being depleted.

By the way, I called the office of my U.S. Senator and Representative. I left a message for President Bush. YOU should do the same!

Stacey, I would not want to live my retirement years KNOWING that I had intentionally emotionally disabled even one child for BONUS MONEY! You need to think about what you're doing to SAVE the family and SAVE the child.

Why don't you put out more effort to see that the truth is told to the children and to judges.

Tell me, Stacey, is it acceptable in TEXAS for a father to touch his child? Is it acceptable for a father to change his child's undergarment? Is is acceptable for a father to give his SON a bath or shower if the mother is ill? That's what this case is about! The OKDHS Intake Worker said, "A father should NEVER touch his child!" It is NOT acceptable!"

If the mother is ill and the child needs a bath, is the father supposed to find a mother down the street who will come over and give his son a bath?

Tell me, Stacey, does Hobby Lobby sell "sexually explicit" items in Texas and DHS says they do in Oklahoma City area? Hobby Lobby Purchasing Agents for Stores in OKC says they NEVER sell sexually explicit items of any sort. OKDHS says they do. When I asked for the items to be returned so I could take them back to Hobby Lobby for a refund, OKDHS said the items had been lost or stolen! They can't find them!

I wonder how the Family Dollar and Family General Stores get away with selling 'female' rabbits, 'female' chickens, 'male' rabbits, 'male' chickens (roosters), male and female dressed dolls. Those items are VERY sexually explicit. Even J.C. Penny, Dillards and other fine stores sell items specifically designed for a man or woman, boy or girl. Diapers are even sold in pink and blue colors to indicate 'sex' they're used for.

There are some VERY SICK people working with children! Look around. Look to your right and left. If neither of them appear to be sick, then think about who that might be. How many sex deviants do you know in your agency? Could that be the reason toys, purchased at Hobby Lobby, dressed as girls or boys are called "too sexually explicit" to give to a child? Think about it!

You say you're sick of our rantings! Well, millions of parents are SICK of the abuse and neglect DHS agencies force on their children in the name of what's BEST for them! When it takes TWO adults to restrain a little six-year-old speech handicapped kindergarten child, THAT'S NOT in the interest of what's BEST for the child! When the caseworker refuses to believe the parents and Patient Information on prescriptions to cause the child to suffer for thirty days, that's NOT in the interest of what is BEST for the child!

You say that in the State of Texas CPS workers start out on an average salary of $21,000 and for that money, they get shot at, chased, cursed at and assaulted on a daily basis because they care about the welfare of children. If you're doing your job right, you shouldn't be treated that way. If you are being shot at, chased, cursed and assaulted on a daily basis, why doesn't the police department know about it?

It is NOT the children's fault that there are very few workers and too many cases. I'll get over the fact that CPS receives a bonus for taking away a child when the ASFA is rescinded. I lost grandparent rights because I wrote a letter to the school principal asking for protection of kindergarten children from sexual assaulters on school property. My son lost his parent rights because he had to give his children baths because the mother was too ill. He tried, in vain, to get her to go to the doctor.

When he called the OKDHS caseworker asking about parenting classes, he was told OKDHS has NO parenting classes! Then, she said, "You need to move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce!" If a parent is ill or needs help, OKDHS caseworkers say, "You need to move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce! We have no parenting classes. We cannot help you!"

Stacey, there are lies throughout our case. I've described them earlier. I still don't know who my deceased husband's three sons could be. We still don't know who Susan and Andy are. We still don't know how badly their bones were broken while in TWO different foster homes. We still don't know why OKDHS placed a sexually abused child in the home with the kindergarten girl so he could expose himself to the child.

Why would the OKDHs Field Representative tell the grandmother to bring everything that belongs to the grandchild to OKDHS so they could dispose of the items as THEY see fit? What would make her think that the grandparent would turn over $250,000 worth of her grandchildren's things to OKDHs for their disposal! That's OKDSH! Hopefully Texas DHS cares for what is BEST for children. That cannot be said about OKDHS!

The ASFA is making DHS agencies into what you call "CASH COWS" by passing out BONUS MONEY for emotionally disabling little children, putting them on mind-altering drugs and counseling and adopting them to NON-BIOLOGICAL families. The NON-BIOLOGICAL family changes ALL three names of the child so they'll be further emotionally disabled. Then, the adoptive home gets Adoption Incentives to supplement their income until the child is eighteen years old or TWENTY-TWO if he/she is still in school.

DHS is a SICK system and nobody knows what to do to cure the illness. In the meantime, children and loving families suffer while DHS agencies pass out BONUS MONEY to encourage and support the abuse and neglect.

Stacey, DHS agencies have changed since 1997. Their employees used to CARE about children and families. That cannot be said in this day and time with the application of the ASFA being forced down their throat. Poor future generation!

Stacey, why don't YOU call President Bush and your U.S. Senator and U.S. Representative. Tell them how the ASFA is being used to destroy families, emotionally disable little children and flood DHS agencies with BONUS MONEY in unlimited amounts ... ALL coming from OUR Earned Social Security Benefit Fund.

By the way, Miss Stacey, your DHS agency ALSO teach little children how to curse. Curse words such as the ones you used were NEVER spoken in the home! OKDHS taught them to these children! They also kicked the speech-handicapped kindergarten child out of school. That's called Child Protection Services in Oklahoma County.

State legislators should change the laws that supports DHS abuse and neglect! Oklahoma Statutes say that the children should be placed with the Foster Parents only IF THERE ARE NO MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY THAT IS WILLING AND ABLE TO CARE FOR THE CHILDREN! That is NOT what is being done!

I am soooo sick of your rantings - Yes the system has missed too many children but that fact is there are very few workers and too many cases

AUTHOR: Stacey - (U.S.A.)

In the State of Texas CPS workers start out on an average salary of $21,000 - They get shot at, chased, cursed at and assaulted on a daily basis because they care about the welfare of children -

Yes the system has missed too many children but that fact is there are very few workers and too many cases - Get over the fact that CPS receives a bonus for taking away a child - Your daughter/son lost their child (children) for a reason - I was grateful I did not have to do my Social Work internship with CPS but have had to deal with many cases that CPS had to be called in on - So if you are so hell bent on calling CPS a cash cow then by God - Call George Bush - he is the one who refused to give CPS the monies needed for case workers

If you want those kids back petition the courts but for the love of God quit with your bullshit lies! Try being in my shoes some day - Deal with a woman who has been beaten, threatened and terrorized

SAVE SOCIAL SECURITY! RESCIND ASFA!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

BONUS MONEY given to DHS agencies for complying with the requirements of the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 are diminishing our EARNED SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFIT FUNDS.

Call and/or write to your congressional representatives asking that the ASFA be rescinded in order to SAVE the Social Security Funds.

Read the reports giving the amount of money being paid to each state for applying the ASFA. The ASFA supports DHS agencies severely abusing children, seriously neglecting children, destroying families, removing all parental rights and adopting children to non-biological families so they can receive BONUS MONEY from the ASFA.

There are even cases where the children are adopted to their own biological families, after their parenting rights were removed, so DHS can get more BONUS MONEY!

Courts receive BONUS MONEY for speeding Adoptions!

Please verify the ASFA application reports and write and/or call your Congressional Representatives.

Be aware that calling your STATE legislators will do absolutely NO good. The BONUS MONEY floods into the coffers of state agencies and results in saving state funds for other budgeted items.

Trina, Join Your State Family Rights Association

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Trina, search your internet for Oklahoma Family Rights Association. Join the OKFRA. They have people in that sight who may be able to help you.

DHS abuse is prevalent in Oklahoma! It stems from a follow-up to the Washington Witch Hunts of 1994. The Clinton Administration passed the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. The ASFA was to end in 2002. President Bush extended the ASFA through 2008.

The ASFA is designed to break Social Security. DHS is given UNLIMITED funds (BONUS MONEY and AWARDS), all coming from our Earned Social Security Benefits Fund, to help them adopt children. Trina, I read one case where the children were ADOPTED to the biological parents so DHS would receive BONUS MONEY from the ASFA! Oklahoma has received BONUS MONEY and AWARDS every year since 1997.

As you can read in my reports, my grandchildren were VERY severely abused and neglected by OKDHS caseworkers and DHS contractors. The Oklahoma Laws require that children be placed in the following order ... (1) parent or parents, (2) grandparents, (3) persons designated by the DECEASED parent or parents, (4) other family members and (5) foster parents.

One of my grandchildren was placed temporarily with an aunt who didn't know how to care for the boy. The other child was placed in a Therapeutic Foster Home because she had birth-related speech defects.

The judge seemed to try to place the children with the grandparent but OKDHS refused! Their contracted home study worker visited the grandmother and informed her that the bones of both of her grandchildren had been broken. She said the OKDHS report stated that the grandmother knew ALL about how the bones were broken. The caseworker said her report was that their bones were broken some time between January and March 2002. They were taken into OKDHS custody in October 2001.

Trina, I was VERY sad when I learned that the bones of both of my grandchildren had been broken while in TWO different OKDHS foster homes!

In August 2002, the children were placed together in the same therapeutical foster home. Their final adoption to the therapeutic foster parents was in March 2004. The children are being abused and neglected in that home. There is little more that the family can do at this time.

Trina, I'm thinking that your case was intermingled with our case. When you get into the OKFRA, see if you can find, even from the administrator, information I have posted on the site. Send me an e-mail. I live in the OKC area, too. The home study caseworker from North Care told me that her OKDHS report said that I knew all about my grandchildren's broken bones.

OKDHS intermingled our case with that of a Kiowa Indian case, too. I think some of the information from the two cases were separated. The accusations are still posted on the OKDHS Kids files but I think the pages from the Kiowa Indian Case, showing that the father was FULL BLOOD KIOWA INDIAN, were moved to a separate file. I haven't check to ascertain that as fact.

Trina, I find it very strange that OKDHS caseworkers seem to never be able to apologize for the abuse and neglect they force on our little children and families. When my six-year-old granddaughter was abused by the Intake Worker, my little granddaughter apologized when she said, "I sawwy!" to the caseworker after she was restrained by TWO ADULTS!

Children are NOT protected or cared for when they are taken into custody by OKDHS. There's more abuse and neglect going on inside that agency than in every family in America! More children are injured or die in foster care than outside of foster care ... with members of the biological family. There is NO way you can yank a little child up and throw him/her in with caseworkers who know NOTHING about the child and expect the child to be treated normal. It cannot and does not happen.

Please join the OKFRA so we can share our stories. As I stated earlier, the ASFA is a continuance of the Wenatchee, Washington Witch Hunt of 1994. DHS, in the state of Washington, is losing millions of dollars in lawsuits filed by those who were permanently damaged by the witch hunt. When you have time, read about the witch hunts. Then, you'll be able to understand why the ASFA was enacted by the Clinton Administration and extended by the Bush Administration.

Americans need to be informed about the ASFA. It should be rescinded IMMEDIATELY! It's causing DHS agencies all across the country to take more children into custody, foster them out, remove parenting rights and adopt them so they can get the BONUS MONEY and AWARDS provided by the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. Oklahoma has received BONUS MONEY and AWARDS every year since 1997. Over thirty states have received BONUS MONEY through compliance with the requirements of the ASFA. President Bush lowered the requirements so that more states can qualify for the BONUS MONEY.

I'm concerned now, Trina, that OKDHS is trying to get involved with people of FAITH. To me that means they want to go into our churches, find people who touch children (changing their diapers or pull-ups) and take the babies and young children into custody so they can adopt them to NON-BIOLOGICAL families for BONUS MONEY.

I see signs posted in restaurants BEGGING people to apply to ADOPT a child. That's what it's all about! OKDHS wants to continue receiving the BONUS MONEY and AWARDS.

If only Oklahomans KNEW about the ASFA and would join the OKFRA to try to REFORM OKDHS and rescind the ASFA, our children and families would be much better off! How can our future generation have any sense of biological family continuity if this continues through 2008?

Trina, I have not seen my granddaughter since 2001. She was living with me when her mother called the school and told the teacher to put the children on the bus to her house. Older children on the bus, sexually assaulted my six-year-old granddaughter that day. She was in Kindergarten and had never ridden on a school bus before. When the older boys told her to pull her pants (slacks) down, she didn't know any different. She thought she was supposed to do what older children told her to do. When I reported the sexual assault to the principal, they were taken into DHS protection so they could be abused and neglected by OKDHS caseworkers and contractors.

The ASFA MUST be rescinded! OKDHS must stop abusing and neglecting our little Oklahoma children!

Trina, I'm so sorry that your little son lost his sight while in OKDHS custody. That's so very sad to me! Why do they insist on permanently damaging our little ones? Oklahoma Laws need to be changed to protect our Oklahoma children from OKDHS. Biological family units will be extinct in Oklahoma if OKDHS continues through 2008.

That's why the Social Security Funds are reportedly being drained. It's being paid to DHS agencies in the form of BONUS MONEY and AWARDS to enable them to continue abusing and neglecting our little children! It's actually Fraud, Waste and Abuse of Federal and State Funds. It needs to be reported ASAP so the FW&A can be investigated! DHS agencies need to repay every penny they've been paid from the ASFA! It's nothing besides FW&A of federal funds!

DHS took my child and gave him back blind

AUTHOR: Trina - (U.S.A.)

I write this a few yrs back. My son is now 6 yrs old and the light of my life! my daughter is 8 and my butterfly. Due to feeling sick right now i wont rewrite it all but copy and paste the story.

H ello my name is Catrina Davidson. I am the proud mom to two wonderful children, Andrianna age 3 (will be 4 soon) and Dallas age 1 and a half. Here is our story.

My son was born pre-term due to heath problems with my cervix. He was 2 pounds 1 oz and soon dropped to 1 pound 10oz. My son at between 2 and three months old had kidney failure, he was given Laxis which causes brittle bones. His kidneys started working and we would be going home with in the next month or so.

Well the day before my son was to go home he had laser surgery on both of him eyes he had ROP like 90 percent of babies born this early. He was sent home and we started going to a different hospital for out patient care because the hospital he was born at really did not offer too much out patient. Well we started children's hospital and started to see his new doctor. I told my husband on the first visit I did not feel comfortable with the new doctor she seemed not to care too much.

Boy were we right! Big time. It was either the second or third time we went to see the doctor that I asked for a chest x ray. Dallas, while he was in the hospital had fluid on his lungs a lot, and I wanted to make sure everything was ok. I had to ask three times to get this done she refused the first 2 times well we did get it done. We then went to our other doctor's appointments and went home.

With in a few days we got a knock at our door, it was a police officer, and a lady dressed very nice. They asked if I was Catrina Davidson, mom to Dallas and Andrianna Davidson. I replied yes and they asked if they could come in? I said yes. They came in and said they were with D.H.S. they asked if they could see the kids. I said sure. (I had nothing to hide) I told them the kids were taking a nap and I would go get them. I got the kids and then they said Mrs. Davidson, we have to take the kids with us. I said what? They said that my little Dallas had three cracked ribs. I said oh Dallas has Ostiopenia (spelling?) brittle bones. I told her that the wonderful doctor's at Baptist hospital where he was born, told us about the bone problem and told us he could come up with broken bones for no reason at any time. She said we would have to come to court Monday (it was Friday)

I freaked and was not going to let them take my kids!! Well, the next thing I know there are more cops. And then my kids were gone. Oh, I was still crying and could not stop. I got in the car and went and got my husband. We then went to Baptist hospital and told the doctor's what had happened. They said it would be ok and to calm down. They said were write a letter to the judge and it will state that Dallas has a bone problem and bones could break just by burping him, and that ribs break easier.

We then waited through the weekend and went to court that Monday. We gave the letter to the D.H.S. worker who stated to us this was a big mistake and the kids would be given back today. She said she would give the letter to the D.A. who would then give it to the judge. We said ok and went in to court without an attorney. (We did not abuse them he had a bone disease why would I need a attorney?) Oh boy were we wrong! The judge already had his mind made up. Dallas was abused he said. We then went out and hired the first attorney we saw. He went back in to court and told him about the letter that the D.A. never gave him. Again we went back to court, but the judge again had his mind made up. We went home and went to court the next day because the judge wanted to hear from the Dr. at Baptist.

The doctor at Baptist was more then happy to help my family and came to court and said this is normal with kids with Ostiopenia. The ribs could break by touch and no one would even know it happened. The judge again had his mind made up. We then went up stairs and appealed to the judge. There we got my 2-year-old daughter back. But they kept my son. Well we hired a new attorney and went after D.H.S. again we had an attorney who was really good with in 30 days we had Dallas back and the charges dropped with in a few months. But not before we noticed some thing wrong with my son's eye's he had went blind in D.H.S care.

D.H.S. did not take Dallas to his eye appointments the ones who called and reminded them of everyday. Well he missed the appointment and did not get the treatment he should of by the time we got him back, it was way too late. He had surgery after surgery he was blind. His eye Dr. Scott said that there is a chance he could see if he had seen him and that at the least he would have been able to see some thing if he had seen him. Now there is nothing they can do.

There are a lot of other things about this story that makes me so mad like the time we went and see him at D.H.S and he had a rash that was bleeding and had not even been taken to the doctor yet. And that the D.H.S worker and the supervisor went to the D.A. and told her they find that Dallas or Andrianna was not abused. But they still kept them. The D.H.S worker said she will testify in court the kids were not abused and will do anything in her power to help us sue D.H.S. well this is the short version of my story. If u would like more info on this story or know an attorney who practices in Oklahoma that will help me please contact thru this website.

The AFSA is DHS's current version of the Wenatchee Witch Hunt of 1997

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Please read reports about the Wenatchee Witch Hunt of 1994. Once you read reports describing the case, you'll see that the ASFA (Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997) is the Department of Human Services' current version of the historical Wenatchee Witch Hunt of 1994.

Washington State Courts have ordered Washington State Department of Human Services to pay parents for the damages they did to the children and families taken into DHS custody in 1994 during their Witch Hunt.

The BONUS MONEY paid by "WE, THE PEOPLE" through payroll deductions to FICA (Social Security and Medicare Funds) will more than replenish Washington DHS for the monies the Washington State courts ordered them to pay to the people involved in the Wenatchee Witch Hunt of 1994.

After reading about the Wenatchee Witch Hunt of 1997, please write to your Congressional Representatives and to President Bush asking that they RESCIND the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and ALL subsequent laws rewarding BONUS MONEY to DHS for destroying families and disabling children so they can be ADOPTED.

The current ADOPTION program is the newest version of the Wenatchee Witch Hunt. Unless the ASFA is rescinded, Social Security and Medicare will be required to give ALL of their funds to DHS as BONUS MONEY for adopting children. PLEASE BE AWARE ... There is nothing to prevent DHS from adopting children back to their own biological parents so they can receive the BONUS MONEY! Courts are easily persuaded by "Hard Working" DHS caseworkers.

Judges know that if the children are adopted, their court will receive BONUS MONEY! Their lawyer associates who adopt children receive BONUS MONEY.

Look at the continuously increasing number of lawyers advertising that they are Adoption Lawyers! Look at the increasing numbers of counseling services. REMEMBER, DHS only contracts with counseling services, physicians and foster parents who will follow their instructions!

READ THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997!!! It's the Public Law designed to close Social Security and Medicare as families are destroyed and children emotionally disabled through DHS contractors for BONUS MONEY.

In order for DHS to adopt children to their own biological parent(s) all parenting rights must first be removed. That's easily done by lying DHS caseworkers telling their fabricated stories to juvenile judges.

DHS says (1) their employee turnover rate is high, (2) takes too long to train new caseworkers (to be liars) and (3) can't figure out how to deal with the father of a child other than to accuse them of abuse and/or neglect.

Once new (college degreed) DHS caseworkers are 'trained' by DHS Trainers, they KNOW how to destroy families and emotionally disable children so they, too, can receive part of the BONUS MONEY!

It's easy to see that the ASFA is designed to replenish DHSs coffers. It's a shame that they must destroy families and disable little children to replenish their funds!

One more note. The ASFA was designed and adopted by the Clinton Administration. Its intent was to adopt children who had been in foster care for several years. It's being used to destroy families and emotionally disable children so they can receive BONUS MONEY from Social Security. President Bush extended the ASFA from 2002 through 2008.

When a parent requests parenting assistance, the parent seeking help is told to "Move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce!" If the parent fails to follow their instructions, parental rights are removed.

Recent developments SAY that DHS will develop courses supposedly designed to HELP parents stay together. However, while parents are taking the course, DHS has their children in custody and they're preparing to adopt them to NON-BIOLOGICAL families.

READ the statistics showing the amount of BONUS MONEY given to State DHS Agencies. Shocked? How can those ($$$$) numbers be so high if parents receive services? It's high because DHS caseworkers will NOT do their job OR because management, supervision and/or agency directors will not allow them to do the job they thought they were hired to do.

DHS pays contractors to 'help' parents. DHS employees are too busy fabricating stories to tell judges. They don't have manpower sufficient to help parents. And besides that, it would be a conflict of interest for DHS to both train parents AND adopt their children. The Department of Human Services MUST use contractors to train Foster Parents and Adoptive Parents. They MUST use contractors to 'diagnose' children's needs. DHS schedules Grand Staffing Conferences to figure out if they're doing everything they can do to get the children adopted for BONUS MONEY!

IF A CONTRACTOR (including ALL doctors, counseling services and foster parents) fails to go along with recommendations made by the Department of Human Services, another contractor is found who WILL DO whatever DHS suggests. Contractors KNOW that unless they do what DHS suggests, they will NOT be paid $$$$ for their contracted services.

#60 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Social Security Funds nearly GONE??

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Do you want to know where the Social Security Funds went? They've been given to DHS in BONUS MONEY and AWARDS for emotionally disabling our little children so they can Adopt them!

The Adoptions and Safe Families Act provides for unlimited amounts of BONUS MONEY and AWARDS to be given to DHS when they double their Adoptions!

Check the Reports on the amount of BONUS MONEY that has already been paid to each state for doubling their adoptions.

For some reason I always understood that the money deducted from our payroll checks combined with the money our employer added to it was to be put into the Social Security Fund for use by retirees as they qualified for regular retirement or disability retirement and for children of parents who are deceased.

Times have changed though. The Civil Service Retirement fund was given to Social Security in the 1970-80. Now, people who retire from the federal government are required because of WEP/GPO to leave their Social Security Benefit money with Social Security so that it can be given to DHS in the form of BONUS MONEY for emotionally disabling little children so they can be adopted.

I don't recall Social Security Benefits being paid out as BONUS MONEY to anyone before! Usually the benefits are paid as EARNED benefits. Times change! Federal retirees must give ALL of their Social Security benefit check to DHS. Matter of fact, ALL employees who have paid social security in the hopes of having a social security check when they retire, are required to GIVE that money to DHS to REWARD them in BONUS MONEY for emotionally destroying little children across the county. Times change!

It doesn't seem quite fair to ME that our Social Security earned benefits check should be given to DHS but that's the requirement of the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. It is any wonder that Social Security Funds are reportedly running low? DHS has our Social Security earned benefits in their coffers to pass out to employees and contractors who have "worked diligently at emotionally disabling little children" across our country.

Read the reports and you'll see how many billion dollars of OUR Social Security has been GIVEN to DHS in BONUS MONEY and AWARDS for complying with the provisions of the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997!

It's totally unbelievable that our legislative representatives in Washington D.C. would pass the ASFA to give our Social Security Retirement Funds to DHS as BONUS MONEY for emotionally disabling our future generation. But, that's exactly what our legislators did when they passed the ASFA and extended it through the year 2008.

Yes, at the current time, the ASFA will continue to STEAL our Social Security Earned Benefit Checks through the year 2008. No wonder Social Security is running low on funds. DHS has it in their coffers!

WEP should be rescinded!
GPO should be rescinded!
ASFA should be rescinded!

Write or call your congressional representatives. Ask him/her to explain to you why your Social Security Retirement Benefits are being given to the Department of Human Services as BONUS and AWARD MONEY through application of the ASFA? No doubt you will get a surprising response! While you're on the phone, ask him/her why the GPO and WEP has not been rescinded as well as the ASFA?

Social Security Funds were NOT meant to be misused as required by the ASFA. It's actually FRAUD and THEFT of federal funds! Isn't FRAUD and THEFT against the law in the United States? OOPS, our CONGRESS approved this FRAUD and THEFT of federal funds (Social Security) so it's not against the law!!

The living night mare I went through... it still haunts me at times

AUTHOR: P - (U.S.A.)

This is the first time I have had the nerve to write about what happened to my children and me.

It began 3/22/2000. I had gotten a job working nights making twice what I was before. My sister was watching my children for me. She has a personality disorder and got mad at me. Looking back, I should have never left my boys with her but that was my only mistake. She took my kids and dropped them off at the police station while I was at work at 2 am.

Of course, the files are sealed and I have never been allowed to read these documents but I am sure knowing my sister there was more to the story than just that. Because it took me 9 months to have my children live with me again after that.

Yet years later to another DCFS worker, she stated that she did not say any of the things that the first caseworker reported her as saying. I do not know which one is lying or if both of them are. However, she did recant her STORY. In addition, neither of them had to tell their story under oath. The records I have been able to read do not portray what I said accurately either. I do not discuss this distressing information with my boys other than they adamantly do not want to be removed from our home yet again but I am willing to say that the stories they supposedly told are not reliable documented either.

The story goes on I did all I had to do to get custody of my boys back. I moved to another county in the same state of UTAH. I constantly lived under a cloud of suspicion. I was accused of sexual abuse in 9/2001 of my now 10 yr old when he had fallen at school off of a play ground toy and a chain had hit him between the legs making his groin area bleed. I had been at work and he repeatedly told them that he did it at school and there were witnesses that he had done this at school. Then on 10/25/2001 they were taken from school again. This time rather than placing them in their fathers home(were my oldest had broken his collar bone with out receiving medical attention during the first placement, and other varying reasons) my boys were put into two different foster homes.

Never during this time had DCFS come to my home to see how I was interacting with my boys and taking care of them.

The case workers from the second county went off the inaccurate records of the first county, so even though the state laws had changed and they would not have been able to remove my children from my home(either time with the new laws), they did because of the prior records. It took me 8 months to get my boys back and on 12/05/2002 my case was closed.

I packed up on 12/15/2002 and moved to a new state.

Due to the prior cases when my son had to go in to the state mental hospital for a resulting depression from all the stresses my children have been through, I had yet another case opened on myself and my family here in the state of Virginia. This was in 9/2003 and was closed in 12/2003. I have not had any more cases on myself since. I finally am beginning to feel peace that I can send my children to school with out having a sinking feeling in my heart.

The laws need to be changed. It should not be illegal to be a single mom, working hard to provide for her kids. Just because someone fits, some crazy profile does not mean that they are an abuser. My children are the real victims with all that went on they suffered undo stress and strains that they should have never had to deal with. Yet alas, in the end we are a stronger family and appreciate each other more than, if we had never had to live without each other.

HELP THE CHILDREN OF AMERICA!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Write or call your state and congressional representatives. Let them know that the Adoptions and Safe Families Act is being used to destroy young children and families so that DHS can receive BONUS MONEY!

The ASFA is NOT being used as originally intended! It is being used to ROB Medicare and Social Security so BONUS MONEY can be paid to the Department of Human Services to reward them for emotionally disabling little children and promoting the destruction of families. Let YOUR representatives KNOW what is REALLY going on. They, our congressional representatives, are the ones who CAN and SHOULD do something about these laws that have been enacted.

Let President Bush and his cabinet know that their extending the ASFA through the year 2008 will bring about an end to the American way of life. The ASFA is destroying America from within it's own borders!

Look at the ASFA update reports to see how much money your state has been paid to fabricate accusations, interweave case files, lie to judges, lie to little children, lie to foster parents and adoptive parents, provide little children with massive amounts of mind-altering drugs, provide children with extended grief therapy counseling to help them recover from the permanent emotional damage they have caused the little children just so they could receive their BONUS MONEY.

Be aware that DHS/CPS management, supervision and directors have instructed caseworkers, and all employees and contractors to "Do anything in YOUR power to take another child into custody, permanently place him/her, remove parenting rights and adopt the children to people of THEIR choice SO THEY'LL RECEIVE BONUS MONEY!"

Laws provide protection to liars! Read the laws in your state that provides protection so employees can do ANYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO TAKE CHILDREN INTO CUSTODY, REMOVE PARENTING RIGHTS AND ADOPT THE CHILDREN so they can receive BONUS MONEY. Employees are NOT held responsible for what they do to destroy little children! If an employee IS found to be guilty, they are moved to another position so they can 'hide out' the rest of their working years. States protect their liars! When an employee tells the truth, they are FIRED! It's called 'whistle-blowing' and cannot be tolerated by the Department of Human Services! Truth costs DHS massive amounts of Bonus Money!

Look how much money has been given to YOUR state DHS agency for doubling and tripling their adoptions. Do whatever you can to stop the Department of Human Services from receiving the Bonus Money given them for emotionally destroying little children and families. File Class Act Law Suits! Contact the Amererican Civil Liberties Union! Call for a Grand Jury Investigation of DHS across the country!

America is being destroyed from within by HHS/DHS/CPS, agencies of our federal and state governments. Children across American no longer can be confident that they'll be able to trace their roots. Their ancestry is secretly closed within the halls of DHS/CPS awaiting re-unification that NEVER EVER occurs!

This is NOT the America that our forefathers fought, bled and died for! This is NOT the America that our forefathers wanted when they wrote the Constitution of the United States and the American Bill of Rights!

What happened to the America that was established 'by the people and for the people' that our blood relatives, even our own children have fought and died for? When will Americans open their eyes and SEE what the Department of Human Services is doing to permanently damage our country and its citizens?

DHS, why don't you want families to be re-unified? DHS, why don't you want the truth to be known about what you're doing to our citizens?

Our children are depending on us to restore the American way of life FOR them. Our little children have absolutely NO means to speak out and have no way to know about the plans DHS has in mind for them. We, the people, need to PROTECT our vulnerable little children FROM the Department of Human Services and their money hungry jaws of destruction.

Tell DHS, their employees and contractors that Americans want every DHS employee to stop interweaving case records and fabricating stories for BONUS MONEY!

Americans CANNOT trust the Department of Human Services! DHS is no longer a respected part of our government!

PLEASE DO ALL YOU CAN TO RESCIND THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 is placing VERY heavy burdens on employees of the Department of Human Services and the Juvenile Court System.

Supervisors and Directors of DHS are using unbearable force on DHS employees to promote the ASFA. Employees are being humiliated for finding a way to save a child from Adoption.

The rewards and bonuses provided to DHS to double their adoptions is causing caseworker's to do ANYTHING (EVEN TELL LIES) in their power to adopt another child so the rewards and bonuses will flood DHS across the nation.

Thirty-three states more than doubled their adoptions in 2002. Read the report. See how your state fared in the promotion of ASFA.

The bonus and award money comes from Medicare and Social Security. The ASFA states "there is NO limit to the amount of money that can be awarded to DHS for doubling their adoptions." The ASFA is currently applicable until 2008. Please do what you can to SAVE the children!

Poor little DHS abused and neglected children! Yes, I said DHS abuses and neglects little children in their custody. DHS should focus their attention on helping parents in need ... especially when the parent puts forth efforts to request assistance in parenting skills.

Establish and advertise parenting classes for young, inexperienced parents. Don't adopt children out just so you can receive bonus money from the ASFA!

Develop and present local parenting classes. Encourage troubled parents to complete parenting classes. Develop parenting classes in the public school system as a part of their education.

Help parents! Don't destroy their little children just because you don't want to put forth an effort to hold classes that will help them. Shame on you!

DHS caseworkers have in the past and will continue to do ANYTHING to hold on to their jobs so the bonus money will flood their agency. They will have to look themselves in the mirror in eternity. I hope they will hear my Savior say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant!" Promoting the ASFA will prevent that from occurring. Think about it!

I repeat the Biblical admonition, "It is better to hang a millstone around your neck and be drowned in the deepest sea than to injure even one of His little ones." These ARE His little children that you are purposefully emotionally damaging for bonus money to your agency!

Few DHS caseworkers will receive a beneficial amount in the bonus money, but your superiors WILL receive great accolades and bonuses! You have little choice but to uphold your supervisor and director's orders to do anything in your power to adopt another child.

Think about it! Write letters to your congressional representatives telling the pressure you are under to adopt another child. You're likely not being told of the bonus money but read the ASFA and you'll see that's what it is ALL about!

The ASFA should be rescinded immediately to protect our little children from this abusive agency. DHS will leave NO family in tact in order for them to receive the bonus money.

Computerized Chips will be placed in the forehead or hand of each child they take into custody so they can be identified as an adopted child. DHS will do ANYTHING in order to get the bonus money!

PLEASE! PLEASE! SAVE THE CHILDREN FROM THIS ABUSIVE GOVERNMENT AGENCY.

BE AWARE that when a child is taken into custody for ANY reason, the child is immediately diagnosed as Emotionally Damaged so they can be placed on Medicare and Social Security.

NO child deserves the treatment that is currently being promoted by the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. The Clinton Administration should be ashamed that they promoted this Act!

President Bush should be ashamed that he has extended the abusive ASFA through the year 2008. President Bush has been misled as to the full content and applicability of the ASFA.

President Bush thinks that the ASFA was put into place to help older children find adoptive homes. He thinks that adopting these children will save Medicare and Social Security. He needs to learn the full truth of why the ASFA should be rescinded!

President Bush should ask that the ASFA be rescinded to SAVE the CHILDREN.

DHS caseworkers in every state should use every means they have to get the ASFA repealed or rescinded to SAVE the CHILDREN! Rescinding the ASFA will mean they will NOT receive bonus money but is it really worth the little dab of bonus money they'll get to purposefully emotionally disable even one little child?

Think about what YOU are doing to promote this abusive ASFA! Help RESCIND THE ASFA TO SAVE THE CHILDREN!
Respond to this report!
What's this?
I hope people who read this ripoff report will read the laws that I have referenced. If they could only see where the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 orders UNLIMITED AMOUNTS of rewards and bonuses from Medicare and Social Security, they would be surprised! It's NO wonder there's serious problems in Medicare and Social Security. I KNOW people do NOT believe the things I say about the Adoptions and Safe Families act of 1997. They just need to READ it. Then, their eyes will be opened.

It's no wonder that the WEP and GPO can't pay retirees federal retirees their justly earned social security. There IS no money left after DHS gets through with the ASFA bonus program.

In the event that some of you aren't aware of the WEP and GPO, they are two laws which steal earned social security from federal and state retirees. GPO erases up to 60% of a federal retiree's earned social security benefits. WEP erases dollar per dollar every penny a spouse paid into social security for spousal retirement benefits. These two laws should be rescinded but there is no money left to pay the rightfully earned benefits to people who have worked for years. They've paid their social security in as required by law but then the law changed so the money could be given to DHS in bonus money.

Sorry that some of you weren't aware of those laws. We need representatives in Congress who are not afraid to protect Americans. We need to stop giving our hard earned money to the affluent Department of Human Services for emotionally damaging little children.

Write to President Bush. Write to your congressmen. Ask them to study the ASFA, WEP and GPO in depth to see if there isn't something they can do to make things right for American citizens.

The ASFA bonus money from Medicare and Social Security will be paying the courts, adoption lawyers, DHS employees, foster parents, adoptive parents and contractors of all sorts. Medicare and Social Security is even paying adoptive parents an additional monthly stepend of $400-1,000 per child, per month for adopting the children that DHS employees and contractors have INTENTIONALLY emotionally disabled.

President Bush needs to get control of DHS before it's too late. I don't believe that even the President of the United States can stop DHS's abuse and neglect unless he reforms and retrains employees to protect children from THEIR abuse and neglect.

Each state insures their employees so they CAN abuse and neglect each child in custody and then allow the foster and adoptive to continue the abuse and neglect "in the interest of what's BEST for the child!"

DHS workers, because of pressure from supervisors, management and directors, has NO choice but to fight for removing parenting rights so the bonus money will be passed to them.

If anyone had asked me what I thought about DHS five years ago, I would defended every action they did. I CANNOT defend what they are doing NOW since the ASFA has been in effect.

I am certain that President Bush NEVER intended the ASFA to be misused the way it. Mr. Bush thought the ASFA would help prevent babies from being aborted and help children who had languished (DHS's big word for caring for a foster child so he/she could have visits with their ill or incarcerated parent), in foster care for several months find a family willing to adopt them.

I don't believe Mr. Bush knows what is REALLY going on behind the doors of DHS. When loving grandparents volunteer to care for their grandchildren and can financially affort to care for them, they should be given an opportunity to keep their biological grandchild in the family. As it is, DHS will NOT permit grandparents to even visit their grandchildren.

One grandparent not protecting his grandchild, has caused EVERY grandparent in Oklahoma to lose contact with their grandchildren. DHS intends to see to it that no family stays in tact with biological relatives. That's what they claim in "best for the children!"

I believe that Mr. Bush would want an able-bodied member of the biological family to adopt or care for their own family members if they were mentally, physically and fincially able to care for them.

Mr. Bus seems to be a family oriented man. If he only knew the truth about DHS, he would immediately rescind the Adoptions and Safe Family Act of 1997.

Write to your Congressional Representatives and President Bush. Plead with them to rescind the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and explain how the law is being USED to close down Medicare and Social Security and promote DHS child abuse and neglect.

Please, for the sake of American children, do all you can to get the ASFA rescinded. It's not just emotionally disabling children but it's severely abusing and neglecting them FOR THE BONUS MONEY. It IS in the interest of what is BEST for children to rescind the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997.

PLEASE help protect our little children from DHS abuse and neglect! They're destroying all hope for our little children. Please stop them!

That's an outragous amount of money

AUTHOR: A - (U.S.A.)

Oklahoma really loves their DHS workers. I hope people read the newspaper and get concerned or at least question the practice of awarding DHS workers for destroying the families and moral fabric of our country.

I would like to respond to "L" from Oklahoma's comment on worker's asking for God's forgiveness. As an EX-employee fo the Texas CPS agency, I have done that. And I have often wished there was a way to find those people who I feel I may have wronged. But, I feel my efforts could be better served by supporting efforts such as this one and to also tell my one story. Not my story as an ex-employee, but as a onetime client of the same agency I used to work for.

Yes, I have been a victim of this agency as well. I will not go into the details here. I may write in to RipOff and file my own complaint. The reason that I held back this info before goes along with the premise of this report. I was afraid of retaliation from the agency if I "talked."

I think people should know the power and far reaching effects of this agency as well as how they are funded. They do not want parents to get their children back. Oh, they put "family reunification" on the service plans and the court documents, but what families do not know is that CPS ALWAYS has a concurrent plan. And what that means is while CPS looks the confused,sobbing mother in the eye and tells her, "Do all this stuff Ms. Mommy, and we will return Jr. to you."

What CPS does not explain is that while mommy is doing all that other stuff, CPS has a whole other plan in place ready to go at a moments notice if mommy screws up.

When a CPS worker prepares for court to terminate rights, they have to be prepared to tell the judge in court that they have a plan already to go. In other words the CPS worker has already contacted and sometimes secured a family to adopt a child as soon as the court terminates the parents rights.

The reason for all that is that the CPS worker has a deadline for paperwork and of course the biggest factor is that if they miss the deadline they do not get the MONEY! There is big money in adoptions.

I was surprised at the amount the first time I met with an adoption agency to go over paperwork. I can not remember details so I will not make statements that I can not back up. Remember, I am a reformed ex-CPS worker!

Yes, I made a joke but I am serious about this topic. I will probably devote the rest of my life to this cause. I know it so well and I know the devestation it can cause.

One other thing I wanted to just clarify about what "L" from OK is talking about when referring to "best interest of the child" and how CPS basis their descisions on that. What people and CPS do not realize, is that when a child is in fact abused/neglected, that child, as strange as it may seem, LOVES their parents. The child does not know any difference as to the abuse. The parent does.

Therefore the child feels responsible for the removal and carries that guilt for years, maybe forever. The smart thing would be for CPS/DHS agencies to help parents with family issues and problems while the child is still in the home. An example would be parenting classes.

CPS requires parents to take parenting classes upon removal of their child. The instructor of the class gives scenarios and assignments to go home and work on with their child (there are other parents in these classes that are not CPS clients) Well, the CPS parent does not have a child at home to work with. So not only has CPS ripped away their precious child but now they want to humiliate the parent further and make them loose all hope by taking this class knowing all the while they don't have a kid at home.

The bottom line is that CPS does not do what it was set up to do. Over the years, it has manipulated the state and federal legislatures into giving them more money, more power, more, more more..... I hope it is not too late to do something. To stop them.

I'm with "L". I want to go back to the day when my friend's mom caught us doing something wrong, and yelled at me for messing up, sent home AND called me mom. People should help each other more. Back then, kids where sent to stay with relatives many times due to parents illness, accidents, death, loss of job, new baby. Nowadays, people find out you've made some "arrangements" for a relative and automatically become suspicious.
That's just stupid!

The Rewards and Bonuses are Flooding Money into DHS across America!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The 2002 Rewards and Bonuses have been passed out to those states that doubled their adoptions in 2002. Oklahoma has, according the the local Daily Oklahoman Newspaper, received more than $7.9 million dollars in rewards and bonuses from Medicare and the Social Security Administration because they more than doubled their adoptions in 2002. What a shame to be so proud of destroying the hopes of so many little Oklahoma children! I hope the bonus money makes each of you VERY happy as you recall the damages you've done to little children and families in order to earn the bonus money. Eat it! Drink it! Sleep with it! Enjoy every penny of the bonus money!

Remember, OKDHS administrators, supervisors, employees and contractors, "It is better to hang a millstone around your neck and be drowned in the deepest sea than to injure even one of His little ones." (Luke 17:2)

I hope each DHS employee, each administrator and each supervisor in OKDHS will be able to pat themselves on the back WITH PRIDE for the emotional damage they've done to so many little children and their families.

YOU, my fellow American citizens, will have to live with what you have chosen to do to our little Oklahoma children. I've spent my time and energies trying to let Americans know what the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 is doing to our young children. You've spent your time devising fabricated stories to remove parental rights so you could get your bonus money. Enjoy the benefits of your endeavors!

"And Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why think ye evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, "Thy sins be forgiven thee;" or to say, "Arise, and walk?" But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins." (Matthew 9:4-6a)

In other words, it would have been so much easier and cost far less to help parents with their parenting problems rather than destroy the family. It was your choice however. You decided it was in the interest of what's best for the children to promote evil laws rewarding adoptions and emotionally disabling little children. I hope you can live with your evil deeds. I'll be OK! I've done what I was supposed to do to try to save the children. Can YOU say the same?

Supervisors, Administrators and EVERY employee who has promoted adoptions in every state, in any way, need to ask God for forgiveness for the lies that promoted the adoptions. Again, I hope you will be able to live with your decisions. You have or will soon receive your bonus money for your services. Now, enjoy the bonus money! Make merry your days! Enjoy looking into the sad eyes of those little children as you see them walk down the aisles of schools and churches searching for truth.

Now, begin working with the faith community. Get police officers to tell their story about taking a little child into custody so you can receive your bonus money. Have someone testify to the faith community how they have seen a little child crying and felt the need to help the family rather than have them adopted by DHS. Of course if they decide the help the family rather than report them on the DHS Hotline, they will be accused of knowing the abuse or neglect was occuring and doing nothing about it. It's a losing situation. The laws need to be revised to allow people to help those in need rather than turn them to DHS for destruction.

I'm sure that DHS wants and badly NEEDS the faith community to work WITH them. They don't want ALL the blame for the emotional damages. DHS wants to blame the adoptions on the faith community. DHS wants to reward the faith community for their help in getting the bonus money. Let it be KNOWN across America just exactly what you plan to do by wanting to enter the faith community. It will NOT favor the faith community to get involved with DHS as long as the ASFA is in effect. It will only serve to provide bonus money to DHS.

Watch DHS promoters as they enter our churches and hear a child crying in the nursery. They'll call it neglect or abuse. Watch, as they see a daddy changing a diaper in the nursery. They'll call a daddy changing a child's diaper Child Molestation! Watch, as in the nursery, a mother nurses her child so she can attend worship services with the assurity that her child is resting well. DHS classifies seeing a mother nurse her infant as indecent exposure! Watch, as you see a parent discipline his/her child for whispering or moving a muscle in a worship service. That's child abuse! Watch, as you see a child waiting in the hall where the parent told him/her to wait. That's child neglect!

Yes, DHS is begging to work with the faith community. They want our church families destroyed so they can get more rewards and bonuses. They want members of our faith community to foster more children and adopt those little children that DHS has emotionally destroyed. DHS wants to alter their young minds through manipulative drugs and/or counseling so they can get their bonus money each year through 2008.

Please, members of the faith community, be very cautious as DHS uses every means known to man to get involved with your members. They want the bonus money and may even offer to pay you bonus money to help them emotionally destroy our little children. It's ALL about money from Medicare and the Social Security Administration.

Read the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. The ASFA provides NO limitations on the amount of money Medicare and the Social Security Administration can feed into DHS for adopting children ... that is if they can double their adoptions.

READ THE ASFA. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO LIMIT!!! The bonus money is paid to juvenile courts AND to DHS with NO limits on the amount of bonuses!!!

The first Amendment of our US Constitution gives us freedom of speech. Then, we have separation of church and state. The church is what DHS calls the faith community. Now that they've gotten a good hold on what they can do to further destroy little children for rewards and bonuses, they want members of our churches, the faith community, to help them by applying to be foster parents and applying for adoption of a child that they've so diligently emotionally destroyed. DHS wants us, the faith community, to help them repair the emotional damages they've forced on little children!

Look at the number of children that have been placed on mind-altering drugs! It's sometimes called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Do you want DHS to continue emotionally abusing our little children? If so, just do nothing. If you want the damages to stop, write or call your congressmen/women. Ask that the ASFA be rescinded in the interest of what is BEST for the children.

Poor children! Members of the faith community should read the Adoptions and Safe Family Act of 1997 and see how it orders DHS to take in more and more little children, foster them out, remove parental rights and then adopt them to their choice of parents. So many times, I've read where the foster children are abused and neglected by foster parents. Some foster parents intentionally abuse and neglect the child while others abuse and neglect them because they don't KNOW the real facts in the case. DHS will NOT tell foster parents the truth. It's impossible to really help little foster children when they're so damaged by DHS!

Case in point. The home study worker told me that my grandchildren's bones had been broken while they were in foster care and demanded that I tell her everything I knew about the broken bones. When I finally regained my composure from the shock, I asked the home study worker for the DATE of the bones being broken. It was while they were living in the foster home! Do you think DHS would tell the foster parent they have been accused of breaking the children's bones. No, not ever! You, foster parents, are NOT given the true facts!

The foster parents in our case were instructed to "Tell the children that their daddy lied under oath." The foster parent was told, "If you don't tell them that their father lied, then we WILL tell them." It's DHS's way to further destroy little children's hope so they will learn to hate their parents. DHS uses every means available to mankind to try to alter their young minds about their parents. That's DHS and their Child Protective System!

Every DHS Supervisor and Administrator across America should ask that the ASFA be rescinded so they can protect children as they should without the rewards and bonuses. But, the awards and bonuses are too tempting to let go.

Congress should rescind the ASFA and force DHS to protect children from the horrors being forced upon them. It is a fact that many of these little children are being given mind-altering drugs and/or extensive mind-altering counseling by DHS contractors to help them accept the lies they've been told. The younger the child, the easier it is to alter their young mind!

Aren't you proud, DHS? The Daily Oklahoman says plans are to give NEARLY ALL DHS employees and DHS contractors $1,000 bonus for the 'hard' work they've done to earn the rewards and bonuses. Yes, even foster parents and adoptive parents are to receive part of the bonus money from the ASFA.

Live with it! It was YOUR choice to help DHS destroy the hope of our little Oklahoma children. It was your choice to see DHS caseworkers lie under oath. It was your choice to help DHS destroy the homes of these little children. Live with it!

I know there's little foster parents can do to stop DHS's emotional destruction. I KNOW that if the foster children are doing OK, it helps DHS remove parenting rights so the children can be adopted. It's a no win situation for foster parents. You want to help and your hands are tied by DHS. Your grievance process is nil. And, if you do file a grievance, the child will be moved. You can't win!

Wait just one moment, foster parents. I KNOW you thought you were helping the children and you HAVE done a superb job and the best that you knew to do but that was NOT what DHS contracted you to do. You were contracted to 'care for the children' so they could say, "It's in the best interest of the children to remove the parenting rights and leave the children with the foster parents or adopt them to someone that we chose as their parents." If the child is returned to the parents, the bonus money will not be given out to anyone. It's ALL about money! Even if the parents complete ALL required 'hoops', the children will not be returned to them. It's all about bonus money!

You, foster and adoptive parents, should be receiving your bonus money soon according to the Daily Oklahoman. Use it to benefit the children who have been ultimately destroyed by OKDHS. Give the children some sort of hope for a normal life. I know it will be difficult! You are NOT told the truth! Oh, yes, DHS will say they're giving you all the information they have but that's full of baloney! I wouldn't want to be in your shoes in this day and time or as long as the ASFA is in effect. You have a hard job to do and I thank you very much for what you wanted to do to save children. It's the ASFA that prevents your success.

Just realize, foster parents and adoptive parents, that the bonus money you should be receiving soon is in appreciation for your help in destroying the family and the little children. I know that was NOT your intention but nevertheless, you should be receiving your bonus money soon for helping DHS adopt more little children.

It's a tough life for children and families as long as the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 is in force. DHS Administrators and Supervisors are looking for every means to get the bonus money! They'll do ANYTHING to get that money! Their greatest desire is to close the doors of Medicare and the Social Security System so they can control America. The ASFA rewards and bonuses come from Medicare and the Social Security System. The ASFA gives authority for DHS to receive an UNLIMITED amount of refunds and bonuses for doubling their adoptions each year through 2008.

DHS caseworkers and especially the permanent placement caseworkers, adoptions workers and Juvenile court judges and employees will soon be receiving their bonus money, too. That's what the ASFA orders. Read it!

Thirty-three states doubled their adoptions in 2002. The figures will be greater in 2003 and throughout 2008. IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY PROMOTED BY THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997.

Medicare and Social Security will have to close their doors as they're robbed through lies from DHS caseworkers, their supervisors and administrators across America. DHS employees are FORCED or placed under great pressure to do anything within their power to take in more children and adopt them for the award and bonus money.

As in our case, there are lies and intermingling of case files throughout the case. The children have been sexually exploited in the foster home with the approval of DHS! However, DHS says, "It's in the interest of what's BEST for the children for them to be adopted." Totally false statement! It's in the interest of what's BEST for DHS for them to be adopted.

As I noted earlier, the juvenile courts are being rewarded, too, through the ASFA. READ the document. It's there! I haven't heard how much money the juvenile courts will receive or have already received from the ASFA. But it's there anytime the state doubles their adoptions!

Again, enjoy your bonuses. You HAVE earned them. You deserve the bonus. The children don't deserve the damage you've done to them to get your bonus. They're suffering endlessly so you can enjoy your bonus money. Be happy but keep in mind the teaching in Luke 17:2! It's YOUR choice! Live with it!

MANY other DHS employees who should come forth and let fellow Americans KNOW what is really going on. Fight with all your might to save our children!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Thank you, A, from Kerrville, TX! Your verification of my findings is greatly appreciated! There are MANY other DHS employees who should come forth and let fellow Americans KNOW what is really going on. Thank you A, from Kerrville, TX!

The most recent report states that thirty-three states have DOUBLED their adoptions. Oklahoma is number six in the nation in percentage of adoptions! The state of Texas is number fifteen in percentage in number of adoptions.

Please read "Adoptions of Children With Public Child Welfare Agency Involvement by State, Federal Fiscal Years 1998-2002, Ranked by Percentage Increase Over State Average 1995-1997 Baseline Through 2002."

One state report to look very closely at is the state of New York. Their percentage didn't DOUBLE! Their percentage is reportedly only 3.14%. Remember, their senator, Hillary Clinton, promoted the ASFA. Look at the number of adoptions NY finalized from 1995-2002. N.Y. adoptions baseline is 4,716. Adoptions in 1998 totaled 4,819, 1999 totaled 4,864, 2000 totaled 4,234, 2001 totaled 3,934 and 2002 totaled 3,160 adoptions from DHS foster care.

That's a lot of homes and families that have been destroyed to adopt their biological children to someone of DHS's choice!

That's a lot of parental rights that have, of necessity, been removed "in the interest of what's BEST for the children!" N.Y. totals over 40,000 parents whose homes have been destroyed (2 parents per child - 20,011 adoptions x 2 parents = 40,022) to be able to finalize these adoptions! That's just ONE state ... the state of New York! Look at the other states whose percentage rate is doubled and even tripled.

For example, take a look at the state of Illinois, number five in percentage of adoptions (233.32%) in 2002.

I wonder how many of those little adopted New York children had already been the recipients of 9-11 loss of biological family members. I hope that most of those little children whose parents were lost in the 9-11 ordeal, were adopted by biological family members. Maybe they can at least have some sort of continuity of family members. That's not the case in the majority of adoptions.

It's true! Even if the little children are adopted to a member of the biological family, DHS still gets the rewards and bonuses offered by the ASFA and subsequent laws.

New York Senator, Hillary Clinton, and her husgand, our former President Clinton, were given high accolades for developing and promoting the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997.

Look at New York's neighboring state, Massachusetts, whose adoption percentage totals a -1.43%. That's right! Massachusetts total percentage rate of adoption was -1.43%. Rhode Island adoption percentage rate is 11.88% and Michigan report of 48.71% shouldn't be overlooked.

I hope you'll be so persuaded by the report that YOU will take action to get the law rescinded to PROTECT our little children from DHS abuse and neglect. When a child is adopted by competing with a percentage rate, it is NOT in the best interest of any child!

Remember, in order for a child to get to the stage of adoption, DHS MUST devise lies just as reported by A. from Kerrville, TX. My previous reports describe some of the lies that have been reported in just our case. Think about it!

PLEASE WRITE OR CALL YOUR CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN ABOUT THESE ABUSIVE LAWS! The ASFA is killing American children's hope for anything near a normal childhood! What will be left of our nation once all these children are adopted?

Please read the laws I've referenced in previous reports. You, too, will be very surprised when YOU learn what is really going on in our country!

James 1:8, "A double-minded person is unstable in all ways." Thank you, A, for letting your fellow Americans KNOW what is really going on in our country.

God BLESS America! The land that I love! Americans need to stand by their fellow Americans and save the children FROM DHS.

Once again, "It is better that a millstone be hanged about your neck, and that you be cast into the deepest sea, than for you to offend even ONE of these little children!" (Luke 17:2)

P.S. Faith Based Communities take caution! You are being used to help DHS destroy children and families so DHS can get their rewards and bonuses. DHS will use correction officers, DHS employees and contractors to tell you how you can work with DHS. The problems within the halls of DHS still remains. DHS needs to be reformed so children can be protected.

Read what DHS is trying to work out with our Faith Based Communities (churches). DHS will do ANYTHING to fill their coffers as they destroy little children and families! Don't be deceived by the Department of Human Service's 'efforts' of including churches in their child destruction program. They're even offering that our faith based communities take in children without going through the foster care funding SO THEY CAN GET THE REWARDS AND BONUSES! READ! READ! READ!

Reading the ASFA made me physically ill

AUTHOR: A - (U.S.A.)

As a former CPS worker, I was "familiar" with the ASFA guidelines because I was a Subcare worker. For those who do not know what that is, I managed a case after the child was in state custody. I was in court about three times a week, prepared statements, filed court papers, etc. I was aware that I was a rebel at the agency because I sometimes argued the descisions of my supervisor and even the DA.

I was told to "forget about my suggestions to the court" and "to understand that this is best for the child." I was never aware, as I am now, that the ASFA was some how driving the higher ups in the agency to push for more adoptions.

Since I read the report, about two weeks ago, I have been going over old cases in my mind and realizing how I was used to manupilate the case before the court. I testified, on the witness stand, in many termination (of parental rights) cases that I was in direct conflict with.

But my supervisor and the attorney ad litem told me it was "in the child's best interst." You work so closely with these people everyday that its easy to get caught up in the madness.

People do not realize the power this agency has, not just in Oklahoma or Texas, but in the USA. As a worker, I enjoyed the power. It was intoxicating sometimes. To think about it now makes me sick. I will say that I did some good things for little kids in very horrible abusive situations. The children you come in contact with as a CPS worker is not something many people can comprehend.

But the children we are talking about here have a chance to hold on to some sense of themselves and where they come from. People who have never worked for CPS don't understand the devistation of the soul that being ripped from their mommy and daddy, can cause a child. Until you have looked into their emotionless eyes, you can not begin to know that pain.

This is the same pain that L. from Oklahoma is talking about. When a child is removed from his parents, the first thing (per training) a worker is to do is look for family members. Somewhere down the road, that idea has been lost.

I used to travel all over the state talking to and looking for family members. Sometimes when I went to my supervisor and told her of my "success" she would grill me about the prospective caregiver and their income, marital status, boyfriends, girlfriends, religion, work ethic and on and on.

I was told "Oh no, the child can't go with Aunt Susie because she doesn't have a big enough house or make enough money. I would stare in horror at my supervisor and respond with, "but Aunt Susie loves AND wants the child." I was seen by my peers as "naive" and "optomistic". Yes, I was even laughed at. But I did not care. I kept going.

In the end, I was "persuaded" many times to "prepare the case for termination and adoption". Its called case planning and permanency.

This is just one example of thousands of cases that CPS handles. The public needs to be more aware of the workings of this agency all over the United States.

In Texas, the governor has called for an investigation into the procedures of CPS and how they handle cases. That's a joke. How can one government agency give a fair and unbiased report on another?

This country is so used to reading that kind of propaganda, we don't know what's what anymore. I'll tell them the truth. And that is, if CPS takes your kid away, 95% (maybe higher) of the time, you'll never see him again.

The ASFA should be repealed and the whole system should be done away with. People should be aware of what their congressmen and women are doing, saying and writing. Find out how they vote. People should bring up the ASFA report in everyday conversation. Be more aware. Don't be afraid to tell others about the terrible things it promotes.

The truth is that the ASFA rewards DHS/CPS with money from Medicaid and SS for the mental/physical care of children in foster/adoptive homes. Where does the money come from for SS and Medicaid? You and me, my friends. Would you be upset and angry if some stranger walked up to you and stole your wallet?

Then why aren't more people upset about what CPS, the ASFA and the government is doing.
Don't be afraid to save a child's life.

Exactly! Susan. If DHS caseworkers were held responsible for lies, they would not be so anxious to tell them!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Laws need to be changed. DHS employees need to be FORCED to tell the truth OR be held FULLY accountable if what they say or write in their report is found to be lies.

Instead, when it is learned the employee HAS abused a child in custody, they're 'helped' out of the agency.

This case is so packed with lies and intermingling of files that it would take members of the family who KNOW, to decipher the lies from the truth. Like ...

What bones were broken?

How would the family know what bones were broken if they were in custody of DHS when they were reportedly broken?

Who are the Kiowa Indian relatives?

Who are the three siblings?

When did the grandparent visit the school?

How are dolls purchased from Hobby Lobby sexually explicit?

Read "Adoption Promotion Act" (P.L. 108-145)

Refer him to the ripoff report site or BETTER yet, give him details of YOUR case. Help him get the laws changed to PROTECT the children.

Read "The Foster Care Straitjacket: Innovation, Federal Financing & Accountability in State Foster Care Reform."

Please, those of you who are foster parents, we KNOW the problem is not normally yours. It's that DHS/CPS caseworkers take the information that YOU give them during visits and add lies to your report. You would be surprised how your reports are abused and mishandled! We KNOW that most foster parents WANT to help the children and the family but that's NOT how DHS looks at you! You're their 'puppet' to reinforce what THEY want done. Thanks for what you do. Sorry that you're being misled so viciously. Hang in there foster parents. Help parents. Stop helping DHS/CPS! It doesn't matter if you say the children are doing wonderful or not. If you say, "The children are NOT doing well," the children will be moved again and again. If you say the children are doing wonderful, they'll report, "The children are doing wonderful in the home. They should be left where they are." You're in a no win position, helping them destroy the hope of little children.

DHS/CPS USES you, foster parents, to experiment with children and alter their minds either through medication or through mind-altering counseling! They are rewarded for supplying reports of their experiments. Sometimes the rewards come in the form of college courses and a grade of "A" if the 'experiment' is reported as successful.

If those of us who KNOW abuse is going on inside the halls of DHS will report the truth to people who CAN do something, maybe some of the children can be saved from their destructive claws.

Like I Said Before....

AUTHOR: Susan - (U.S.A.)

Like I said before, I am quite aware of the unfair, abusive practices of CPS/DSS. A person with an ounce of intelligence could go online and research all kinds of troubles they have caused. Others, like yourself, know firsthand. It's not something that would take a rocket scientist to figure out.

The organization was developed to serve the best interests of children/families, but instead serves the best interests of those who run it. Their reason for being so free to do this is because THERE ARE NO CONSEQUENCES!!!!! You CANNOT, by law, sue a social worker for giving an out right slanderous testimony. You mine as well say that they have "diplomatic immunity". If this were changed, I could aslmost guarantee that CPS/DSS workers would not be so quick to lie.

Sad but TRUE, Susan!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Read the KID'S reports where the DHS caseworker records the results of her interrogation. Lawyers request the court to provide a copy of the KID'S report to the court. The court orders the report to be submitted to them within 2-4 weeks. It takes about two months to get the report compiled and ready for the court.

When the report is finally submitted to the court, the pages are jumbled, blotted out and even some pages missing. That's because DHS workers have to go through the sheets, page by page, sentence by sentence, to see that there is nothing on the page that would reflect what is REALLY going on inside their halls. DHS copies pages of their documents and then blots negative things out so the court will THINK they've covered the case well and humanely. The blotted parts are cover-ups so the court or lawyers will NOT know the truth! Look at one. You'll see!

Once the KID'S report is placed in PROPER page order AND reviewed, it's easy to see that these young children go through tortures of all sorts in order to please the interogator. By the time the records are gathered and submitted to the court, the children have been forced to suffer for several weeks. I would NEVER believe this occurred had I not seen it with my own eyes!

Each child is grilled exhaustively! Then, they're taken back to their room to eat with other children who have been grilled. They're forced to tell things over and over again until the child has it all memorized, exactly as the interogator wants. Then, the grilling resumes later that day or early the next day. These interogations go on for several days. Then, once the worker can develop a convincing story from her interogations, the 'reports' are written in the KID'S files.

This case has a Kiowa Indian case intermingled in the file to accuse the parents of being on some sort of drugs. The judge said, "We can't go on with this case until we have a Kiowa Indian tribal representative because you signed a statement that you are full blood Kiowa Indian!" The case has also been intermingled with a case where the bones of the children were broken. That accusation was in the report by the Home Study caseworker!

During the time these children are being interogated, the worker is interogating other little children. Then, those cases are intermingled with each other, stories are expanded and twisted to make the report APPEAR that DHS is correct in their intake activities.

The caseworkers work for hours on end to convince the children that they are trying to 'protect' them from what is supposedly going on in their home environment. They put ALL sorts of accusations into the minds of the children. It's sad to listen to what they've been drilled into saying!

After the intake worker finishes interogating them for several days, they're taken to a contracted psychologist or psychiatrist to confirm the things TOLD to the children during the interogation.

I am still upset that one psychologist tried to FORCE my young 8-year old grandson to look at naked sketches of men and women during her interogation! My grandson, according to the videotaped interview begged the interviewer TWO different times to stop showing the pictures to him. He did NOT want to look at pictures of naked people! DHS and their contractors will do ANYTHING to twist the young minds of little children. It's inhumane!

The main objective for DHS for several years has been to keep jobs stabilized in DHS so money will flow constantly into their cofers. If DHS employees don't twist the minds and stories of these little frightened children, they or their co-workers COULD lose their job. Their desire is to promote their funding to bring in more and more employees AND more and more contracting services to support their enterprise.

Take a look in your telephone directory or watch as you drive down the street. You'll see thousands of 'counseling' services, thousands of 'family therapists', thousands of psychological examination centers, etc. ALL of these people SUPPORT the Department of Human Services. IT'S MONEY! Laws REQUIRE that if anyone even thinks that a child is being neglected, they are GUILTY of defying the law if they don't report it. A neighbor can have a confrontation with a peer and report lies or accusations to DHS. Then, the family is in store for horrors!

If Americans would just take the time to help a child or a parent, DHS would not be removing parenting rights and adopting children to their choice solely for REWARDS and BONUSES as required by the ASFA and subsequent laws. But, if an American tries to help a family or child and NOT report it to DHS, they are in BAD trouble themselves. It's a no win situation for all concerned ... except DHS!

If a child goes to school without brushing his/her teeth, that's NEGLECT! If a child doesn't wear a coat or sweater to school, that's NEGLECT! If a child doesn't have his/her hair brushed nicely, that's NEGLECT! If a child wears an item of clothing to school that is soiled, even if it happened while eating breakfast AT SCHOOL, that's NEGLECT! If a child comes to school tired, even if there's a serious illness or death in the family, that's NEGLECT! If the teacher doesn't report the observation of NEGLECT, their job is in jeopardy! That's the LAW currently in force! It's not a volunteer report! It's FORCED report or face DHS for NOT reporting your suspicions.

The latest scheme of the Department of Human Services is to DOUBLE adoptions. The ASFA is an abusive law. Look at the report ...

"33 states and the District of Columbia DOUBLED the number of adoptions from foster care during the five years since the ASFA was passed."

Hiwaii has more than tripled their adoptions! Read the "Adoptions of Children With Public Child Welfare Agency Involvement by State, Federal Fiscal Years 1998-2002, Ranked by Percentage Increase Over State Average 1995-1997 Baseline Through 2002." IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY! It will boggle your mind to see what DHS is doing to our little children.

From your computer, read "Nation's Child Welfare System Doubles Number of Adoptions from Foster Care." According to the report, 33 states and the District of Columbia have DOUBLED the number of adoptions from foster care during the five years since the passage of the ASFA. Those 33 states will be receiving federal financial incentives from Social Security and Medicare for complying with the requirements of the ASFA.

The BIG problem is that DHS and their system allows employees to fabricate stories, combine files, tell lies or do anything in their power to get the judge to help them remove all parenting rights from those precious children. As Susan reported, DHS employees are NOT responsible for the lies they fabricate to promote compliance with the ASFA. It's their JOB! DHS employees get PAID for lies and fabrications!

Once ALL parenting rights have been removed, DHS can ADOPT those little children to anyone of their choice. DHS is destroying all hope for little children to live a normal life! What a shame! THAT WAS NOT THE ORIGINAL INTENT OF THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997 or of subsequent laws supporting the ASFA.

Look at the FACTS! The Department of Human Services is USING the adoption laws to ROB Medicare and Social Security to pay their rewards and bonuses. It's double dipping ... dip into Medicare and Social Security during foster care and then dip into Medicare and Security a second time for the rewards and bonuses! There's NO hope for our legislators to save Social Security or Medicare with the adoption laws currently in force! It's no wonder there's so much concern about Social Security!

The original intent of the ASFA was to help children whose lives were hung up in foster care or group homes for years and years, often due to birth related handicaps. The laws, as interpreted by President Bush were intended to help young mothers who desired to adopt their newborn rather than abort them.

The idea was that by adopting the children, less funds would be used by Social Security and Medicare to support these children. The adopted families would be paying for their health insurance, etc. The fact that these children will forever be on Medicare and Social Security because of their emotional disabilities is not made known to the public.

Wouldn't you like to see the financial figures for taking ONE child into custody, fostering him/her out, paying all medical expenses and paying all contractors who deal with the ONE child! I read a report that EACH child costs about $150,000 per year once they are taken into custody. These monies would NOT be expended if the child is returned to the biological family OR if the parent received the help they may need.

There is a report that gives the number of children who have died in foster care and another report where a child died while living in the home with biological parents. Compare them. You'll be surprised!

The fact IS that the bonuses and awards more than cover any expenses Social Security and Medicare is currently out to support foster families. DHS counsels children into begging for 'permanent homes' so they can get out of the DHS power system. If an adoptive home can be found, the bonuses and awards will flood DHS! It's NOT reducing the expenses of Medicare or Social Security in any way!

By the time the child is available for adoption, they are so emotionally damaged that it's hard to place them in ANY home without having extensive counseling services to help them adapt to the new home. The counseling service is another expense added to the adoption expenses unless the adoptive home voluntarily pays the expenses.

According to President Bush's debate question, his desire was to facilitate the adoption procedures to support reduction in abortions. He promoted the laws to give the courts incentives AND DHS incentives to speed up the adoptions. It's just that President Bush has NOT been informed of the lies, twisted stories, abuse and neglect that's being forced on little children in order to DOUBLE the adoptions.

If the stipulation was included in the ASFA that DHS employees tell the truth and stop fabricating stories against children and families, the ASFA could be what it was originally intended. As long as DHS has the freedom to use whatever tactics they can devise to remove parenting rights, the law is NOT being applied as originally planned and intended. The truth is NOT out to the public NOR to the originators of the laws.

It should be pointed out that DHS contractors are PAID $200-$300+ per hour to support DHS endeavors. The contractor works by the hour (or half hour) with the child and has SEVERAL children they work with at the same time. It costs us from $1,600-$2,400+ PER DAY just for DHS contracted services for EACH child in DHS custody. Of course the contractor services doesn't get all the money, but the service provider DOES get the money and it comes from Social Security and Medicare because the children have been diagnosed, by a DHS contractor, as "emotionally disabled" the day they're taken into custody.

If a contractor objects to anything DHS wants done, they KNOW they'll lose future contracts if they reflect that objection. DHS DOES NOT GET THE REWARDS AND BONUSES IF THE CHILDREN ARE RETURNED TO THE BIOLOGICAL FAMILY!

One contractor told ME that she would have to SLANT her report favoring the originator of her contract. That's where she gets future contracts. It's a MUST to support DHS! If DHS is not happy with that contractor's report, they move the case to another contractor who WILL do what they suggest. There is NO way for families or children to win with DHS in power!

Children have absolutely NO hope in America once DHS gets the child's name in their files. Read the reports! Read the laws!

CPS/Department of Social Services Destroys Families

AUTHOR: Susan - (U.S.A.)

CPS/Department of Social Services has nothing to lose if they tesify to a lie. This is why they do it all the time in court. They do not face charges for it. CPS/DSS is indeed above the law. They have also been shown to use tactics that are, in the least, questionable. When questioning a child, they treat it more as an interrogation, eventually getting the answer that THEY(CPS/DSS) wants to hear, even if it's not the truth. Even children that know the difference between the truth and a lie and usually tell the truth, will lie under those conditions. Ask a child whose name is Jane their name, they'll tell you their name is Jane. Keep that same child in a room for hours, not allowing her to have anything to eat or drink, forcing her to stay seated in a chair the entire time. Tell her you know her name is Sue and that it's ok to tell the truth. Repeat this phrase over and over again. Then she asks for something to drink. You tell her that if she tells you the truth, and ask her what her name is, you will end up hearing her tell you her name is Sue. This is one of the abuse tactics that CPS/DSS is KNOWN to use.

Late Reports on progress of the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The Children and Family Research Center of Illinois (cfrc@social.uiuc.edu) (http://cfrcwww.social.uiuc.edu), Phone: (217) 333-5837), report is entitled, "Nation's Child Welfare System Doubles Number of Adoptions from Foster Care."

The report is just four pages long. It contains a list of all 50 states (plus Washington D.C.). In brief, the report, "Adoptions of children with Public Child Welfare Agency Involvement by State, Federal Fiscal Years 1998-2002, Ranked by Percentage Increase Over State Average 1995-1997 Baseline Through 2002" states:

Hawaii, Wyoming, Maine, Delaware, Illinois, Idaho, Oklahoma and North Dakota more than TRIPLED the number of adoptions from foster care between 1997 and 2002.

Between 1995 and 1997, Oklahoma averaged just 338 adoptions per year. In 2000, Oklahoma saw 1,067 children adopted from foster care. The year 2001 showed 956 children adopted. The 2002 adoptions totaled 969.

Oklahoma ranks number SEVEN across the United States of America in adopting little children. Hawaii ranks first 310.59%). Wyoming ranks second (306.67%). Maine ranks third (350.93%). Delaware ranks fourth (241.03%). Illinois ranks fifth (223.32%). Idaho ranks fifth (218.18%). Oklahoma ranks sixth (215.68%). Massachusetts ranks last with adoptions ranging from 778 to 1,100 in years 1998-2002 (-1.43%). Thirty-four stated more than DOUBLED their adoptions!

Read the full report. It will surprise you! The report shows there have been 231,945 little children (35,897 + 46,415 + 50,462 + 50,683 + 48,488) adopted in five years (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002). That mean Social Security and Medicare will be robbed ($30,000 - $300,000+ for EACH child) to satisify the requirements of the Adoptions and Safe Families of 1997 and subsequent applicable legal documents.

Legislators, wake up ... $300,000 X 231,945 = $69,583,500,000 in five years! ($30,000 X 231,945 = $6,958,350,000.)

That figure does not include the legal expenses paid by the biological families to save their children from the destructive claws of DHS/CPS! However, the rewards paid to the courts, to satisfy the requirements of the Adoptions and Safe Families of 1997 IS included.

It is absolutely no wonder that the report finds Social Security and Medicare having problems meeting their REQUIRED expenses! It can be easily determined that both SS and Medicare will be closed in no time using the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. WAKE UP! RESCIND THE ASFA! SAVE THE CHILDREN OF AMERICA!

Massachusetts ranks last with adoptions ranging from 778 to 1,100 in years 1998-2002 (-1.43%). Thirty-four stated more than DOUBLED their adoptions!

Read the full report. It will surprise you! The report shows there have been 231,945 little children (35,897 + 46,415 + 50,462 + 50,683 + 48,488) adopted in five years (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002). That mean Social Security and Medicare will be robbed ($30,000 - $300,000+ for EACH child) to satisify the requirements of the Adoptions and Safe Families of 1997 and subsequent applicable legal documents.

Legislators, wake up ... $300,000 X 231,945 = $69,583,500,000 in five years! ($30,000 X 231,945 = $6,958,350,000.)

That figure does not include the legal expenses paid by the biological families to save their children from the destructive claws of DHS/CPS! However, the rewards paid to the courts, to satisfy the requirements of the Adoptions and Safe Families of 1997 IS included.

It is absolutely no wonder that the report finds Social Security and Medicare having problems meeting their REQUIRED expenses! It can be easily determined that both SS and Medicare will be closed in no time using the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. WAKE UP! RESCIND THE ASFA! SAVE THE CHILDREN OF AMERICA!

Late Reports on progress of the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The Children and Family Research Center of Illinois (cfrc@social.uiuc.edu) (http://cfrcwww.social.uiuc.edu), Phone: (217) 333-5837), report is entitled, "Nation's Child Welfare System Doubles Number of Adoptions from Foster Care."

The report is just four pages long. It contains a list of all 50 states (plus Washington D.C.). In brief, the report, "Adoptions of children with Public Child Welfare Agency Involvement by State, Federal Fiscal Years 1998-2002, Ranked by Percentage Increase Over State Average 1995-1997 Baseline Through 2002" states:

Hawaii, Wyoming, Maine, Delaware, Illinois, Idaho, Oklahoma and North Dakota more than TRIPLED the number of adoptions from foster care between 1997 and 2002.

Between 1995 and 1997, Oklahoma averaged just 338 adoptions per year. In 2000, Oklahoma saw 1,067 children adopted from foster care. The year 2001 showed 956 children adopted. The 2002 adoptions totaled 969.

Oklahoma ranks number SEVEN across the United States of America in adopting little children. Hawaii ranks first 310.59%). Wyoming ranks second (306.67%). Maine ranks third (350.93%).

Adoptions Report Resulting from Application of the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Please review the Report entitled "Nation's Child Welfare System DOUBLES number of Adoptions from Foster Care."

The report shows Hawaii, Wyoming, Maine, Delaware, Illinois, Idaho, Oklahoma, and North Dakota more than TRIPLED their adoptions. Arizona, Iowa and Texas more than DOUBLED their adoptions.

As promoted by the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and subsequent endeavors, including President Bush's current endeavors, DHS' Child Protections Services across the nationa will be receiving enormous rewards and bonuses from their adoptions programs. Remember, the ASFA authorizes salaries of Adoptions Workers and Permanent Planning Workers all across the US to be reimbursed through the ASFA. DHS/CPS contractors will be rewarded bonuses! The juvenile Court Systems will be rewarded bonuses! ALL expenses are paid through the Social Security Administration and Medicare as prescribed in the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997.

One day, our country will be ashamed of their acts of destroying families rather than providing assistance to them! One day, DHS/CPS will receive their 'Rewards' as promised in the Holy Bible. "It is better to tie a millstone about your neck and be drowned in the deepest ocean than to injure even one of these little children!"

Total Number of Adoptions in 50 states plus Washington D.C. was reported:

Average - 28,160
1998 - 35,897
1999 - 46,415
2000 - 50,462
2001 - 50,683
2002 - 48,488
2003 - 58,573
Total INCREASE = 107.99%

An Expose on the Child Abuse Industry

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Read the report entitled, "An Expose on the Child Abuse Industry, Recognizing the Problems, Seeking the Solutions," dated January 2004.

American Family Rights Executive Vice President, Dennis M. Hinger, states, "I have been advocating for the rights of children and families since 1995 and would like to take this opportunity to share the information we have compiled in this handout. It is our sincere hope that all who read this, parent, professional, or concerned citizen, will find justifiable cause to start asking a few questions of your government officials and make some needed reforms."

He goes on to say, "The need to protect America's children from abuse and neglect is the responsibility of every American citizen, yet many people don't know how powerful and frightening the child abuse industry has become. They are more powerful than the FBI or CIA in that they can remove your children from your home without a warrant and without cause. In many cases, children are never returned to their parents and are thrust into the overcrowded foster care system or into an adoptive home. This is done for profit, not for the protection of children. Children from poor families are particularly targeted, but everyone's children are at risk. The system must be reformed now. Don't take our word for it, please read the selection of articles we have provided."

The report is 104 pages long. It contains numerous newspaper articles and investigative reports. The information gathered will SHOCK every person who reads it. I hope you will take the time to pull down the report on your computer. Just type the name of the report, "An Expose on the Child Abuse Industry, Recognizing the Problems, Seeking the Solutions," and it should come right up.

An Expose on the Child Abuse Industry

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

In January 2004 the American Fammily Rights Association published "An Expose on the Child Abuse Industry" (Recognizing the Problems, Seeking the Solutions)that all America should read very carefully!

The report states, "The reward system, which one expert called the 'perverse incentive factor,' has led L.A. County and others to whisk children away from their parents when alternatives might have worked as well or better ..."

Dennis M. Hinger, Executive Vice President, AFRA states, "I have been advocating for the rights of children and families since 1995 and would like to take this opportunity to share the information we have compiled in this handout. It is our sincere hope that all who read this, parent, professional, or concerned citizen, will find justifiable cause to start asking a few questions of your government officials and make some needed reforms."

He goes on to say, "The need to protect America's Children from abuse and neglect is the responsibility of every American citizen, yet many people don't know how powerful and frightening the child abuse industry has become. They are more powerful than the FBI or CIA in that they can remove your children from your home without a warrant and without a cause. In many cases, children are never returned to their parents and are thrust into the overcrowded foster care system or into an adoptive home. This is done for profit, not for the protection of children. Children from poor families are particularly targeted, but everyone's children are at risk. The system must be reformed now. Don't take our word for it, please read the selection of articles we have provided."

CPS admitted recently in their own release, that more than 50% of the children they removed from their natural parents could have stayed home. In California, there are an estimated 145,000 children residing in foster care. It can cost as much as $150,000 per year, per child, to maintain these children outside their home when you consider all of the costs.

An article on Page 61 states, "The Adoption and Safe Families Act passed by Congress in 1997 gave financial incentives to states for removing children from their homes and putting them up for adoption. The federal government gives the states an average of $13,000 per child in foster care each year out of the Social Security Trust Fund, with up to $50,000 a year to provide "services" to that child. In addition, the government gives a "bonus" of $4,000 - $10,000 to states who can terminate a parent's rights and successfully adopt the child to another family."

The report consists of many newspaper reports. One report on page 66 is entitled, "Children Committing Suicide at Younger Age" by Troy Anderson, Staff Writer for Los Angeles Daily News.

ABC News Reporter, Cynthia McFadden, was part of a legal investigation. Her report is on page 67, "Foster Care Stretched Beyond Limits." She quotes one child, "They would take me out and not tell me where I was going. I would get back from school, my bags were packed. I didn't have the time to say goodbye to anyone," said Debbie, "You have to build up a wall so you don't get close."

Call your Congressional Representatives

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Readers, please take the time to read FACT SHEET, "Adoption 2002: Safe and Permanent Homes for All Children" an ACF Press Office Release of February 14, 1997.

You will not believe the contents of that press release! Among other things, it is asking that the number of adoptions be DOUBLED each year so that rewards and bonuses can be given to HHS/DHS/CPS agencies across America.

After you read the document and the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997, call your congressional representative and encourage him/her to get the ASFA rescinded.

PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Do what you can to save out little children from the money hungry claws of HHS/DHS/CPS. There is no end to the current trend to take in more and more children and adopt them out until the ASFA is rescinded.

HHS/DHS/CPS's current endeavors are aimed at the "faith community" where they can wreak horrors on children and families inside our churches. They're wanting to speak to congregations to find more and more foster homes and more and more adoptive homes to promote their endeavors to adopt more children so they can get their rewards and bonuses.

PLEASE pastors across America! Take caution! HHS/DHS/CPS does not want volunteers to serve as foster parents to really help the children. Their only reason for wanting more and more foster parents is so they can take more children into custody and ultimately adopt them to their choice of parents so they can get the rewards and bonuses promoted by the ASFA.

Read the two documents referenced above. Take caution! Members of the 'faith community' want to help children but they need to KNOW that the help DHS/CPS wants is so they can say, "It's in the interest of what is BEST for the child for him/her to remain in foster care and ADOPT him/her to that famimly.

Be aware that HHS/DHS/CPS does NOT get rewards and bonuses if they return children to their biological families! That is NEVER what their goal is as long as the ASFA is promoting Adoptions! Read the documents so you'll see what they say.

Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma to RECUSE herself from the case.

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

The FINAL ADOPTION of these children was completed in March 2004 by the judge who was ordered by the Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma to RECUSE herself from the case.

She was asked to recuse herself because during a recess, she talked to three teachers about the case. Two of the teachers had not testified. She also used a recess to visit with the jurors about the case.

The father's lawyer found these visits to be illegal. The Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma gave her the choice to either recuse herself in favor of another judge or lose her position.

SHE CHOSE TO RECUSE HERSELF! THAT WAS IN JUNE 2002. HOWEVER, when it came time that the Final Adoption could be processed, the OKDHS Adoptions Caseworker, who is being paid through funds of the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997, took the paperwork to the RECUSED judge. In doing the Final Adoption in March 2004, the RECUSED judge ignored the Presiding Judge's "Review of Adoption Hearing" and the grandmother's "Motion for Re-Hearing of the Adoption" and processed the FINAL ADOPTION.

OKDHS/CPS WILL DO ANYTHING in order to adopt a child! They're despirate! It's all about MONEY! The ASFA even feeds money into DHS/CPS to PAY THE SALARIES of DHS employees who work with permanent placement and/or adopting a child. The ASFA is robbing Medicare and Social Security to pay DHS/CPS to destroy children and families!

How long will Oklahoma keep this judge on the bench who wants no better than to ADOPT every child out that she can. She wants DHS/CPS to get their rewards and bonuses promoted by the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997.

Use your computer to find the document called, "Adoption 2002: Safe and Permanent Homes for All Children" where the Clinton Administration is appealing to get each state to DOUBLE the number of adoptions they do each year so they can get the children out of foster care. It states that by Adopting children, it will save monies being paid to foster the children out.

The remedy to saving money in the foster care system is to help parents! Helping parents is NOT placing their child in foster care! Helping parents is providing classes and one-on-one counseling services to them to HELP them with their parenting skills.

There is NO need to destroy even one little child! There is NO need to destroy even one family that is trying to be successful in their parenting skills!

Of course, if the family is helped, the money won't flood the DHS/CPS coffers because the children will remain in the home. The only way DHS/CPS can get the money is to ADOPT them out and they can't adopt them out if they help the parents! By all means, let's feed the abusive system in their endeavors to destroy children and families. Shame!

The ASFA provides billions of dollars to help DHS/CPS. Paragraph 3 of the "Adoption 2002 ..." document states, "To assist states in reaching their targets, the President's budget proposal included $10 million for technical assistance and grants to state agencies, courts and communities to help them develop: an outcome-based approach to permanence placement; collaborative efforts to encourage placement across geographical boundaries; and models to recruit adoptive families."

DHS/CPS ADOPTION promoters have placed signs in windows all across America trying to get more people to apply to be foster parents so they can eventually ADOPT the children. It's all about trying to meet their quota or target! The ASFA provides awards and bonuses to DHS/CPS. The ASFA is EVEN paying the salaries of Adoption Workers and Permanent Placement Workers to promote the Adoptions.

DHS/CPS has a Contracting Service that provides training for Fostering or Adopting children. Once you complete all the training, they'll place a child with you ... that is unless they can find something to stop your offer to foster or adopt a child.

In my case, the DHS/CPS Adoptions worker told me that I didn't qualify to foster or adopt a child because they felt I was not able to protect the children from sexual assaulters on the school bus. That's because when two little children were sexually assaulted on the school bus, I wrote a letter to the school principal asking for her help to protect little kindergarten on the school bus. So, even though I passed the physical, completed all the training, been a foster parent in the past and have years of experience with children, I cannot foster or adopt a child. VERY STRANGE!

Writing a letter to the school principal asking for her to help protect kindergarten children on the local school bus was the wrong thing for me to do. I was not a passenger on the bus to protect the children from sexual assaulters. The school bus driver sure DIDN'T help to protect the kindergarten child. She just kept driving down the road! High School girls had to stop the sexual assault! Because I was not on the bus to protect the children from the assaults, I am not able to foster or adopt any child. At least that's what the OKDHS Adoptions caseworker said was the reason that I could not foster or adopt a child.

I spent a lot of time completing the foster parenting and adoption classes and completing the physical but DHS/CPS says completing all their programs and passing their physical and background investigation does not qualify me to foster or adopt a child. VERY STRANGE!

I need to call the instructor and let her team know that even completing all their training, background checks and physical did not qualify me to be a foster parent. They'll be happy to know that their training is not worthwhile. Hmmmm?

READERS, please call your congressmen/women to get the ASFA repealed. SAVE THE CHILDREN!

REMEMBER! If a child is returned to the parents, DHS/CPS does not get one penny in rewards and bonuses from the ASFA. The rewards and bonuses are only given to DHS/CPS if the children are ADOPTED to anyone of DHS/CPS choice.

I read one report where four children were ADOPTED BACK to the biological family so they could get their rewards and bonuses! It's just the ADOPTION rewards and bonuses DHS/CPS is after.

BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of dollars are being paid to DHS/CPS to destroy families! BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of dollars are used to pay DHS/CPS contractors to alter the minds of little children! BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of dollars are paid to DHS/CPS contractors to put little children on mind altering drugs, extended grief therapy, experimental drugs or experimental counseling ... ANYTHING to get more adoptions!

PLEASE SAVE THE CHILDREN!

CALL YOUR CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN. ASK THEM TO REPEAL THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997.

The Clinton Administration should be ashamed of their promotion efforts to destroy little children and families! The little children the ASFA is destroying are the future of our country. These children, the younger they are, will have NO hope to know who their biological families are. They will spend a lifetime trying to find the truth. Adoptive Parents and Foster Parents are NEVER told the truth! FOSTER PARENTS are USED to promote DHS/CPS's plan to flood their agencies with billions of dollars.

Just this week I read where three young children were adopted out of a single mother's home by DHS 45 years ago. There were three children in the family. The oldest girl, who was eight at the time she was adopted, knew she had a brother and sister. She finally found her baby sister last month. The baby sister had been told that her mother and daddy were dead and that she did not have a brother or sister. That's DHS/CPS's protective services in action. The older sister finally found her baby sister who was only one year old when she was adopted out. They were to meet this week for the first time in forty-five years! THAT'S DHS/CPS's Child Protection Services in action!

Be aware that if a child can be adopted BEFORE he/she is twelve years old, DHS/CPS will choose their parents. If the child is twelve, he/she has a choice as to whether to be adopted or permanently placed.

WATCH YOUR YOUNG CHILDREN! The younger the children are, the easier it is to adopt them out. POOR CHILDREN! DHS will leave NO stone unturned to destroy a child OR a family!

PLEASE CALL YOUR CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN. ASK THAT THE ASFA BE RESCINDED. SAVE THE CHILDREN!

Thank You Foster Parents

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

This reporter thanks each and every CARING foster parent. Please continue trying to help little children who have been taken into DHS/CPS custody and placed in your care.

CAUTION: Be aware, foster parents, that every shred of information that you give to DHS/CPS caseworkers is used against the family and ultimately against the outcome for the children.

If the child does well in your home, they are left there to 'attach' to your family. That has its good points but DHS/CPS knows that if the child becomes 'attached' to your family, they can report that to the judge saying, "These children are doing wonderful in this foster home. They need to remain in that home."

Also be aware that if the child doesn't do well in your home, the child is moved swiftly to another home. DHS/CPS requires that you use a garbage bag to transport all of their personal belongings. They are allowed to be moved up to seventeen times. Some children have been moved more than seventeen times. It's all up to DHS/CPS.

There is no way a foster parent can be a REAL winner! If parenting rights are relinquished or removed, the child will be adopted to you OR, if you don't really want to adopt them but rather, instead, just want to help the children, then DHS/CPS will adopt the child to a 'waiting' adoptive home that they have chosen.

Yes, DHS/CPS USES foster parents to reinforce their plans to adopt the child. Again, this reporter sincerely thanks each and every CARING foster parent for your good intentions. Most children want to return to their loving biological family but DHS/CPS's application of the ASFA prevents that from occurring.

NOTE: If a child is returned to their biological family, DHS/CPS does not receive the awards and bonuses provided by application of the ASFA.

When you have time, please read the "ADOPTION 2002: SAFE AND PERMANENT HOMES FOR ALL CHILDREN" document. That instrument will help you understand what role you really play in DHS/CPS child abuse/neglect and the child's emotional disablement.

Remember, YOU ARE BEING USED to carry out DHS/CPS's desires to funnel money into their coffers.

DHS/CPS and/or their contracted physicians will often insist that you place the child on mind-altering or experimental drugs or vitamins. You have very little choice in the matter! If you refuse to follow the orders to place the child on mind-altering or experimental drugs or vitamins, the child will be moved to a foster home where those requirements WILL be carried out to the benefit of DHS/CPS.

Your well-intentioned services turn out to be an aid to help DHS/CPS and their plans to destroy the hopes of the child to be returned to their biological family.

DHS/CPS has seen to it that ALL grandparent rights have been removed all across America. Grandparents love their grandchildren very much and want the BEST for them but that cannot occur in America because allowing the grandparent to care for the child would prevent DHS/CPS from receiving their bonuses and awards. THE GRANDPARENT RIGHTS LAWS NEED TO BE ABOLISHED SO FAMILIES CAN HAVE SOME CONTINUITY.

Children who are adopted involuntarily, either by the parents or by the child, spend years trying to reunite with their biological family and learn the truth. DHS/CPS spends thousands and thousands of dollars to keep the child from finding the truth. They are brainwashed through the use of mind-altering drugs poured into their system as prescribed by DHS contractors.

DHS/CPS has spent, and is still spending, thousands and thousands of dollars paying contractors to convince the child that their parents never want to see them again. DHS/CPS contractors put the children through 'extended grief therapy' to help them forget about their biological parents. They stick to their guns in these endeavors! DHS/CPS wants that MONEY!

Remember, foster parents, that if a child is returned to the biological family, DHS/CPS will NOT receive their bonuses and awards! If the child is adopted, DHS/CPS will receive more than $100,000 in rewards and bonuses.

DHS/CPS recovers every expense they incur from their 'protection services' for EACH and EVERY child. They will be reimbursed every penny they expend to the DHS contracted counselors, physicians, foster parents AND even be reimbured the salaries for employees relating to the permanent placement and adoption of each child. Read the ASFA. They are reimbursed for the monies they pass to you. (They retain some of the money they are reimbursed for your services so they can pay their employees for their services. You do NOT get all of the money that has been appropriated to YOU!)

Be aware, foster parents, that it is NOT the desire of DHS/CPS to reunify the family! Lies are fabricated. False reports are posted in their KIDS's 'secret' records. You cannot believe how hard DHS/CPS caseworkers work to get the money funnelled into their abusive system! Just take the time to read the ASFA and the Adoption 2002: Safe and Permanent Homes for All Children documents. Then, you'll better understand how much help you are to DHS/CPS.

Foster parenting has been a help to families in years preceding the adoption of the ASFA. This reporter even cared for two official foster children and two other children besides her own biological children. The foster children in our home were all returned to their parent(s) and we were allowed to work with the caseworker to help with their transition to their biological family. It was and still is a blessing to have been a foster parent in the past. The ordeal was very rewarding to every member of this family. That caring attitude has stopped now with the passage of the ASFA.

Again, thank you so much, foster parents, for your willingness to serve as foster parents. You ARE needed! It's just that your are being USED by DHS/CPS to help them rake in money for their coffers. DHS/CPS NEEDS YOU VERY MUCH to carry out their plans!

Another note of special concern. This reporter has learned recently that DHS/CPS is working on the 'faith community' now. They want the 'faith community' to help feed their system of abuse/neglect. The 'faith community' is our churches. Their desire is to infiltrate into our churches so they can take children of Christian families (and other belief systems) into their custody. There is NO end to the depths DHS/CPS will stoop to bring in rewards and bonuses to their Agencies.

WATCH OUT FAITH COMMUNITY, DHS/CPS IS ON THEIR WAY INTO YOUR FACILITIES TO DESTROY YOUR CHILDREN AND DEVASTATE YOUR MEMBERS!

This reporter has already found several children who have been removed from a faith community. DHS/CPS caseworkers and employees are all around you, watching every move you make so they can find a way to take your little children into custody. DHS/CPS has no shame when it comes to MONEY!!

Time will come when Luke 17:2 will strike DHS/CPS where it will hurt! This reporter hopes that comes soon!

"It is better for him (DHS/CPS) that a millstone were hanged about his (DHS/CPS) neck, and be cast into the sea, than that he (DHS/CPS) should offend one of these little ones." (Luke 17:2, KJV, New Schofield Edition)

Legislators and Lawyers! take a real good look at the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997

AUTHOR: L, - (U.S.A.)

Legislators and lawyers across the USA should take a real good look at the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and the individual state reviews of its application and progress. You will no doubt be very surprised and the outcome!

The ASFA is being 'used' to bring in billions and billions of dollars into the DHS coffers. DHS caseworkers KNOW they are lying and the only reason for the lies is to get the rewards and bonuses described in the ASFA. There is NO limit on the amount of money Medicare and SSI will have to pay DHS for their lies and for their abuse/neglect program against little children! DHS is responsible for the abuse they intentionally force upon little children they take into custody! DHS is responsible for the neglect of the children they take into custody.

It is NO wonder that Social Security is going under! The ASFA authorizes an UNLIMITED amount of monetary rewards and bonuses to be paid to DHS by Medicare and SSI. Read it for yourself!

Legislators should find a way to rescind the ASFA to save children of America. These little children are the ones who will be expected to defend our beloved country in a few short years but because they have been 'drugged' by DHS and their experimental drug program and intentionally emotionally disabled, they will not be able to serve their country.

Legislators and lawyers, please do all you can to rescind the ASFA! Review EVERY "Swift Adoption" that has been accomplished since 1997 to be certain that ALL evidence presented by DHS in regular and "secretly" called hearings, are filled with truth. DHS caseworkers are trained to lie so they'll get the rewards and bonuses. It's called ethics and "in the best interest of children." It's all about MONEY from the ASFA.

Juvenile Judges need to be warned that no DHS caseworker or their contractor can be trusted. Every DHS caseworker's report is keenly designed to rake in financial rewards from the ASFA. DHS is very quiet about how they are handling cases to bring in the money. They do NOT want the presiding judge to KNOW their real agenda. DHS caseworkers will not admit to the judge that their report is filled to the brim with lies and fabricated stories.

PLEASE, JUVENILE JUDGES, be aware that you cannot trust even one report given you by a DHS caseworker or any of their contractors!

Caring DHS employees will agree that the ASFA is being USED to flood DHS coffers with money to reward them for destroying little children. Of course, caring caseworkers want part of the rewards so they remain quiet and keep the lies in the reports. This reporter has experienced some of the evil of DHS when employed in a group home. The situation has been gravely worsened now that the ASFA is in place.

Medicare and SSI has been ordered, by the application of the ASFA, to pay DHS to emotionally disable little children! It's all about money! DHS is being paid thousands and thousands of dollars for each and every adoption.

The ASFA places no limits on DHS/CPS as to what they can or can't do in order to bring about an adoption! The ASFA orders that adoptions be increased AND that adoptions should be finalized within six months so the parents cannot meet the demands of DHS. Just as the reporter from Kerr County, Texas said, the ASFA is all WRONG! More reporters need to admit that the ASFA is all wrong!

Again, legislators across our great nation need to look closely at the ASFA and its provisions. The ASFA is designed to rob Medicare and SSI to pay DHS for emotionally disabling little children. That's the ONLY purpose for the ASFA!

DHS and their contractors are eperimenting with little children's minds. DHS contractors would have no need to use "Extended Grief Therapy" or prescribe mind-altering and experimental drugs if the DHS caseworker would stop telling so many lies designed to further injure the children!

Oklahoma County DHS, please answer the questions this reporter asked in the previous report. They include ...

1. How were the children's bones broken? Who broke their bones? Are they crippled for life?

2. What is the date of the letter that was mailed to the parents of these children?

3. Why did OKDHS "help" the Intake Worker find employment outside of DHS and then say, "This grievance is "MOOT" since the caseworker is no longer an employee of this Agency?"

4. Where is the e-mail that the DHS caseworker SAID she mailed to the grandmother? Why can't it be found?

5. Why can't you find a signature on the school's visit roster showing that the grandmother visited the school?

6. Where are the educational items that the grandmother delivered personally to the OKDHS caseworker? Why did they disappear?

7. Who is Andy and Susan? Why doesn't anyone in the family know these good people? Who told these good people to call DHS about the family? Why not admit they are fictitious?

8. OKDHS, why can't you admit that the emotional injuries are purposefully forced on the children so that you can get bundles of money from the ASFA.

9. What happened to the medication that the family delivered to the Pauline E. Mayer Shelter? Why was the report made a month later that said, "Once the child received the medication, he was OK." What did you do with his prescription for the month he was in the shelter? Why was the child's abdominal pain so great that the foster parent called the grandmother for help?

10. Who are the Kiowa Indian relatives? Whose signature is on the report giving the information that the father is full blood Kiowa Indian? Why is DHS intermingling files and telling so many lies to the juvenile judges?

11. Name the father's three brothers. Why doesn't anyone in the family know who those three brothers are? Why is DHS telling so many lies if it isn't for the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA?

12. DHS, why did you Swiftly Adopt these children using the juvenile judge who was ordered off the case? It was another 'trick' that you play on caring juvenile judges.

13. Why did the ousted judge ignore the Adoption Review ordered by the presiding judge of the case?

14. Why was the grandmother's Motion ignored by the ousted juvenile judge?

Somewhere and somehow, DHS must be closed down to save the children of America.

I hope people who read this ripoff report will read the ASFA and each state's application of its provisions. The ASFA needs to be rescinded and every child who has been adopted immediately returned to the biological family. EVERY lie needs to be retracted. Juvenile Judges need to be aware of what DHS is doing all over the country. The "Protection of Children" needs to be done by the Judicial Wing of our government.

As long as we have DHS in charge of "protecting children" there will be NO salvation of families. Too many children are being used to experiment with. What a shame for an agency of my government to be so led to emotionally disable little children.

In past years, children have lived with a grandparent or aunt or uncle if the parent(s) were having relationship problems. In this day and time, DHS will NOT allow such care to occur. I know many people who are in their 60s on up whose families had hard times. Other family members stepped in to help. That does NOT happen in this day and time. We now have the Grandparent Law which says that grandparents cannot be trusted because they would still have some contact with the parents. DHS does NOT want any contact with any biological family members.

Who is this DHS that they think THEY know who should be the parent of a child. A child NEEDS to be with his/her biological family any time it can be worked out. Orders of 'no contact' can be issued by a judge to prevent contact until certain corrective actions can be accomplished. That's not on DHS agenda. The ONLY agenda that DHS/CPS has is force relinquishment of all parenting rights and adopt the children to DHSs choice in a family. Families are being ripped apart every day by this abusive wing of our government.

Write to your congressmen/women. Tell them the truth. Take DHS out of the business of Adoptions for rewards and bonuses. It's all about MONEY!

CLASS ACT LAWYER NEEDED! Please help save the innocent little children! STOP REWARDING DHS/CPS!

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Thanks "A" from Kerry County, TX.

DHS's abuse of children in their care is one of the reasons this reporter no longer works for DHS. It is a shame that an agency of MY federal state and county government is so money hungry and child abuse hungry!

There is NO way that a child in DHS custody can ever have a life with DHS in control. As this reporter has stated several times before, the Adoptions and Safe Family Act of 1997 needs to be retracted! Every case that was promoted in order to get the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA needs to be judically reviewed and in most cases returned to one of the parents or a caring member of the biological family. Every Adoption, that has been finalized as a result of applying the ASFA, should be overthrown!

This reporter KNOW that if the Adoptive home were to have to give the children back to the biological family, many of them would be sad. The sadness is just a drop in the bucket of the sadness the biological families have been put through.

The children described in this case were adopted by a family while DHS KNEW that the grandmother and father wanted them in their custody. DHS/CPS caseworkers reported lie after lie about this family to convince the judge that the children should remain in DHS custody. Like was requested earlier, Oklahoma County DHS (OKDHS), please answer the questions asked previously asked.

OKDHS (Oklahoma County DHS), how did the children's bones get broken? Which bones were broken? Have the children recovered? Are they permanently crippled because of the injuries that incurred while in foster care? The North Care home study worker told the grandmother that DHS reported that the grandmother KNEW all about how the bones were broken ... and then, the North Care homestudy worker told the grandmother that the bones were broken while they were living in the foster home. How in the world would the grandmother know how the bones were broken if she had not been allowed to visit with the children since one week after they were taken into custody after the sexual assault on the school bus? Of course the broken bones may have been the reason the DHS counselor told the judge, "The children are too confused to see their father or their grandmother." The DHS counselor made the statement in order to protect her income. She knew that if visits were allowed, the children could recover and she would be placed on another case. She was actually promoting the ASFA when she made the report to the judge!

The children have now been adopted by the foster parents who, according to the North Care home study worker, broke their bones sometime between January and March 2002. The children were placed in foster care in November 2001. That's true! These children were taken into DHS custody on October 2, 1001 as a result of the grandmother begging the school principal to protect kindergarten children from sexual assaults on school buses. Excessive and accusing questioning of one of the children brought out confusing information to a teacher who had only known the child's name for thirty days, since the beginning of the school term. This reporter hopes that the teacher realizes what has happened as a result of her not understanding the handicap of the child. It was her choice so she must live with her decision. This reporter KNOWS that judgement will fall on "those who injure even ONE of His little ones." (Luke 17:2)

The grandmother tried to care for her grandchildren but the Adoptions worker told the grandmother that she could not protect the children. Reporting the sexual assault on the school bus is not protecting them and other young students riding school buses? No, that's true! Few parents or grandparent ride school buses.

The bus driver is supposed to be in control of students on the bus. If the bus driver needed help, he/she should have asked for an adult to ride the bus to help control the students. She should have returned the students (all students) to the school grounds and let parents pick them up at the school. She, instead, allowed the little kindergarten child to be sexually assaulted and did NOT ONE THING to protect the child! High school girls had to rescue the child from the sexual assault! Why?

It is certain that the foster parents (now adoptive parents) are not aware that CPS informed the grandmother that the children's bones were broken WHILE IN THEIR CARE! They would be furious if they knew that the accusation was made against them ... but that's what the North Care caseworker said occurred. Then the North Care Worker tried to get the grandmother to sign a GAG ORDER to prevent her from saying anything about the report.

As evidenced throughout this ordeal, CPS workers are constant liars! They may have too many cases! That's no reason to promote adoptions. This reporter KNOWS that they do not get facts straight. Several cases are intermingled in this one case. (See previous notes about (1) Kiowa Indian Tribal accusations, (2) father having three step-brothers, (3) grandmother visiting the school, (4) prescriptive medicine not given to the child, (5) grandmother knowing how the bones were broken, (6) children doing wonderful in foster care, (7) speech handicapped child talking as a normal child and others listed in the previous report and (8) what kind of cigarette in a hose in a pipe was the father reportedly smoking? (This is evidently another case intermingled with this case.)

DHS caseworkers get promoted for telling lies! They get 'helped' out of DHS when it is found that they HAVE promoted abuse on a child! They get 'helped' out of the situation for the protection of DHS/CPS.

DHS employees get rewards and bonuses through the provisions of the ASFA if they lie about children or their biological families! If the worker doesn't tell the lies and fabricate stories, then the children will be returned to loving members of the family and they will NOT get the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA.

Readers need to learn more about the ASFA. The current push of the ASFA is to take children into custody, place them in a foster home and ADOPT them to DHS's choice of parents and ALL WITHIN SIX MONTHS! That's 180 days! SIX MONTHS! DHS/CPS does NOT want to help the family get the children back because the rewards and bonuses will not be given to DHS if the children are returned to family members. That's the object of the ASFA and it's rewarding provisions.

READ the ASFA. The ASFA promotes abuse and neglect to bring about the rewards and bonuses provided through adoptions. The ASFA should be rescinded immediately to save the children from abuse and neglect by DHS/CPS across the nation.

These little children were placed in a loving foster home but the foster parents were not aware that they were being USED to destroy little children so they could get their rewards and bonuses. It was not the choice of the foster parents to have the children destroyed. The foster parents wanted to help the children AND help the parents and grandparent. The foster parents were not aware of DHSs agenda of promoting adoptions so they could get their rewards and bonuses. They were not told about the bonuses and awards that the ASFA provides.

This reporter is certain that the foster parents are not aware that the grandmother was told that the children's bones were broken while they were in their custody. It's true! There are two witnesses who can verify the statement made by the North Care caseworker. The North Care caseworker said, "Now, (grandmother), it says in this report from OKDHS that you know all about how the children's bones were broken!" Finally, after the shock subsided, the grandmother asked the caseworker, "What is the date that the children's bones were broken?" The North Care caseworker looked into her report and said, "It says here in the report from DHS, that their bones were broken sometime between January and March 2002." The grandmother, still in shock at the report, stated, "I have no idea how their bones were broken. They have been in DHS custody since October 2, 2001. I have not seen them since October 6-7, 2001. How could I know about the broken bones?" (It is believed that the report was interwoven with still another case.)

This reporter is certain that the North Care caseworker's report stated, "The grandmother denies breaking the bones or knowing about the broken bones." What is going on?

The North Care caseworker is likely aware that unless she helps DHS with their lies, she will not get future contracts. If she doesn't get future contracts from DHS, the ASFA cannot reward her, through DHS, for her services.

It reminds me of the time when this reporter was employed as a Youth Guidance Worker, in a DHS group home in Oklahoma City. One thirteen year old resident begged the staff, including this reporter, to let her talk or write to her grandmother. It was very sad to this reporter when she learned that within a week, the girl was put on mind-altering drugs to help her forget about her grandmother.

It's so sad to this reporter that the young girl was not allowed to even write a letter to her grandmother. A letter to the grandmother would have been such a big help to her healing from the System's abuse. You would think that the letter could have been written under the 'supervision' of her caseworker! She could have been encouraged to write the letter and told that it would be kept in her KIDS record until later. If the letter had been allowed and the child's grandmother had responded, the letter could have been given to the girl, under supervision, so the two could have some sort of resumption of communication. But, no, THEY CHOSE TO HAVE THE CONTRACTING PHYSICIAN PUT THE CHILD ON MIND-ALTERING DRUGS! That's called Children Protection Services of DHS.

DHS is well known for their mind-altering drug prescription program AND the 'experimental' drugs used on little children! How else can medical contractors and pharmaceutical companies get their products tested except through experimental treatment of children in DHS custody? If the DHS contracted physician doesn't comply with what DHS wants done in prescribing mind-altering drugs, that physician will no longer get contracts from DHS. There's a lot of money involved in those contracts! So, the DHS contracted physicians prescribe the mind-altering drugs to finish the child off. Physicians have little choice as to recommendations! PHYSICIANS ARE REQUIRED TO GO ALONG WITH WHAT DHS WANTS DONE TO THE CHILD! Ask one of their contracting physicians if they feel free to make recommendations that they feel would be in the BEST interest of the child? If they're free to respond, they'll say, "We're concerned but we're AFRAID to recommend anything besides what DHS wants for the children in their care."

Well, these children have been adopted to the foster parents through DHSs SWIFT ADOPTIONS services provided as a result of the ASFA. The adoptive home is NOT aware that they have been USED to destroy a family so that DHS could get their rewards and bonuses. This reporter hopes that one day, the adoptive home will be able to resume communication with the grandmother just as before DHS ordered the judge to stop all communication.

This grandmother helped the children adapt to the foster home in the hopes the foster parents could properly care for the children. She didn't want the children to be injured any further. Once communication was going well between the grandmother and the children, the CPS caseworker ordered the judge to stop all communications. CPS did NOT want the children salvaged! It's MONEY in their budget when they can continue the abuse and get the children adopted to anyone of their choice.

This reporter is certain that the adoptive parents have been told to cut off ALL communication with every relative and even threatened to prevent the children from removal from their care. Communication is stopped so that the children will think that the father, grandmother and great-grandmother never want to see or hear from them again. It's heartbreaking! By stopping all communication with the birth family, the adoptive home can establish FIRM relationships with the relatives of the adoptive home. Then DHS reports, "The children are doing WONDERFUL in their adoptive home!"

The adoptive parents have been ordered to prevent the name of the grandmother from being mentioned in the home. The new parents (while in their foster care) were told that if they overheard the children talking about their father or their birth relatives, they were to turn the conversation away from the subject. It's part of the psychological and emotional destruction and reconstruction efforts of DHS/CPS.

What a shame that foster parents are being USED to destroy little children and families! Foster parents are told lie after lie and even instructed to lie to the children. "Your grandmother, great-grandmother and daddy NEVER want to see you again!" The lawyer told one of the children, "Your daddy never wants to see you again!" Tell this reporter why a father who never wants to see his child again, would pay out more than $100,000 to get the lies stopped? Poor children! Poor foster parents who believe the lies. What a shame!

The truth is that the grandmother and father HAVE spent more than $100,000 trying to get the truth out there before a believing judge. That's right! This family has spent more than $100,000 trying to get the lies and fabrications out of the case records.

It is impossible to fight a system that has ALL expenses poured out to them for taking little children into custody and adopting them to people outside the family. READ the ASFA! It states that ANY money that is needed in order to adopt a child out will be provided to DHS. All DHS has to do is request the money and the ASFA will provide it through Medicare and SSI. It's definately MONEY! Read the ASFA reviews from the states.

Read all the information in the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 AND it's subsequent reports telling how many millions of dollars has been fed into DHS by promoting the provisions of the ASFA. It's MONEY! DHS is NOT about protecting children! DHS is about bringing in MONEY to their already overflowing coffers.

Look at the ASFA Review of Compliance Reports. SOME of the money is revealed in detail. This reporter is surprised that the reports are on the internet. The reports NEED to be on the internet so that citizens of our USA can KNOW what DHS is doing to our little children in the name of "protection of children" when not on their agenda. It's really in the name of "DHS/CPS bringing in rewards and bonuses from ASFA."

It's no wonder that you, Cheryl, say, "You can't believe what you read on the internet." It's strange that many of the things this reporter reads is posted on the HHS website. That's your superiors! Don't you know?

Just read the reports and especially about the number of children being adopted so that DHS can get the rewards and bonuses. Thousands and thousands of children are being adopted so that DHS can get their bonuses and awards. It's there! If a child is returned to the family, DHS doesn't get the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA.

This reporter is certain that the reports are not truthful in giving the TOTAL amount of money that has been rewarded. There is a hidden agenda that will not tell the full amount of money that is being given to DHS for their abuse of little children. The federal government rewards DHS through the federal budget. Then, states pull down more money for their coffers through the ASFA. There's no end to this abusive organization until they are closed down.

People have tried and tried to 'reform' DHS so this abuse will stop. The 'reform' cannot occur until citizens of our country find the truth and can see that it's all about money.

A few years ago, Oklahoma DHS was found to have fictitious employees. It was proven! They reported them to be 'contractors' waiting for contracts to be let to them. Some of them were students being schooled in colleges to continue the abuse as they earned their Masters Degree. Cases were used as a part of their education so they could pay them regularly.

Look at the budgets that contains the amount of money fed to contractors of DHS. You'll be able to see that there is much to be done to 'reform' this agency so bent on destroying little children just so they can get the rewards and bonuses AND budgeted funds!

Yes, indeed! DHS needs to be reformed! Nobody knows where to start. There have been study group after study group established, all paid for through our federal, state and county funds. Recommendations are made to DHS and to the state legislature. They are, in essence, ignored.

State legislators try to stop the abusive organization but their hands are tied by people waving flags that say "stop child abuse" when actually the organization that is abusing children is DHS/CPS. Look at this case! It has been and still is a case where every member of the family has been abused FOR THE BENEFIT OF DHS AND THE REWARDS!

Please, legislators, do SOMETHING to stop this abusive organization from continuing. Stop the flow of money into their budgets. Make them prove that the children are not being abused by their SYSTEM! This reporter KNOWS of some of the abuse and has experienced three years of their "protection of children" provisions. DHS's Protection of Children should actually be called "Child Destruction Services" because that's what they REALLY are good at doing. Read the FACTS in this case! It's all about MONEY!"

I KNOW that there are some DHS employees who care. But, for the majority, DHS employees are indoctrinated to do anything they can to keep their jobs. To keep their job, they are required to tell lies, fabricate stories and abuse little children .... all so they can keep their jobs. It's MONEY!

Remember, if the children had been returned to any member of the family, rather than ADOPTED, DHS would not have received the thousands of dollars from the ASFA. They do NOT get rewards for returning children to parents or loving family members. THEY GET REWARDS FOR ADOPTING CHILDREN TO ANYONE THEY CHOOSE! Families have NO choice. DHS wants EVERY child adopted so they can get their rewards and bonuses! Sorry, Cheryl. YOU ARE WRONG! (One of DHSs favorite responses.)

Please help stop promoting the ASFA. Write or call your congressmen about the abuse the ASFA is promoting throughout the country. That's what this reporter is doing. Provide your congressional representatives with facts so they'll be able to see what the ASFA is doing to destroy little children. Our children are the hope of tomorrow and DHS is destroying those hopes.

PLEASE WRITE TO MEMBERS OF OUR CONGRESS. RESCIND THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT of 1997 and all of the state legislative actions to follow through on the ASFA.

Thank you ALL so very much for helping to stop child abuse by "child protections services" of DHS!

DHS employee, Cheryl, you need to be concerned that you are an employee DEFENDING the abuse of this organization. YOU need to read the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 and it's subsequent state reviews and updates. Then, you too, should fight against the abuses instead of defending DHS/CPS.

It's a shame that you, Cheryl, accept money for promoting the activities of the ASFA. You may not realize that you are an individual recipient of the monies, but you DO, in the end, get part of the money provided through the ASFA. It is fed into your state budget upon request ... from Medicare and SSI. States just have to make their request and the money is there! Using adoptions, is a way to speed up the refunds, awards and bonuses. READ the ASFA ... every word of it. You will see that this report is right on target!

Enjoy your job but realize that what is REALLY going on within the halls of DHS is child abuse and neglect to bring in rewards and bonuses from the ASFA. This reporter doubts that many employees are aware of this abusive law that is being promoted in the DHS agenda to destroy little children of America. There is no way you or anyone else can say that DHS/CPS is FOR protecting little children! It's just NOT factual as long as the ASFA is in force!

Friends, we need to file a Class Act Lawsuit against DHS for the emotional damages DHS promotes! DHS is destroying little children! If any of you know a way to find a lawyer who will help us file a Class Act Lawsuit, please let us know. The Department of Human Services' child abuse/neglect needs to be stopped! Maybe the Class Act Lawyer can help get the ASFA rescinded to protect little children. This reporter has hope for children if the ASFA can be retracted.

Please, if you're a lawyer who is interested in filing a Class Act Lawsuit, please contact parents and relatives of children who have been taken into DHS custody. Please help save the innocent little children! STOP REWARDING DHS/CPS!

CPS perpetuates the need for more funding ..infant abandoned after birth at the hospital

AUTHOR: A - (U.S.A.)

Many of the statements by L. from Oklahoma were right on. I was with CPS in Texas for five years. I left the agency when my personal opinions and beliefs began to conflict with agency policy.

Workers were told to expidite the adoption placement of infants as soon as they were taken into custody. An example would be an infant abandoned after birth at the hospital. Before the search for the mother was made the decisions were being made to place the child for adoption. Adoptions were tracked and reported on a monthly basis. I guess that is how the ASFA justifys their funding. By quantity, not quality of care. I could not agree with this practice. Many times I found my moms. I can't say that for other workers.

The other comment I have is concerning the services provided to the children and families by CPS. The more services they provide in a year, they receive that much money and more the following year and so on and so on.

CPS, Foster Parents and Juvenile Judges

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

OKDHS, tell the parents to these children how they can find their long-time 'friends' Andy Brown and Susan Rhodes. OKDHS caseworker, Giwa, reported in the KIDS files that these parents and these 'friends' visited each other very frequently. What is their real name, their real address and their real telephone number? If they voluntarily (?) called you to let you know that these parents were good loving parents, then why don't these parents know these people?

OKDHS, tell this family the names of the three brothers that were reported to your contract psychologist. Why doesn't anyone in the extended family KNOW these three brothers? Who are they and how can they be contacted?

OKDHS, what kind of cigarettes in a hose in a pipe did the father smoke? Why doesn't the father know about the cigarettes? Why didn't you give the father a drug test since he was evidently, in your report, smoking something illegal?

OKDHS, when did this father sign an affidavit that he was full blood Kiowa Indian? What is the Kiowa Indian family name?

OKDHS, why did your intake worker feel it necessary to call a man into the room to help hold the six-year-old GIRL down "so she wouldn't injure herself?

OKDHS, why did your intake worker report that the speech handicapped kindergarten girl spoke clearly just as a normal five year old?

OKDHS, when the six-year-old girl was placed in a TFH, why was she was again placed in speech therapy similar to the one she attended while living with the grandmother? The intake worker reported that she spoke as a normal five-year old girl and that she understood EVERY word the child said. Is this the same speech handicapped child or is another case intermingled with this case?

OKDHS, when did the grandparent visit the school while her grandson was in the foster home? Why did you lie to the judge? If the grandparent visited the child in his school, what day did she sign the visiting records in the school?

OKDHS, why did you leave the young boy in a school where the teachers reported to the foster parent that his life was in danger because of his disabilities and the students he was placed with?

OKDHS, why did your contracted Bair Foundation counselor tell this young boy to write a letter to his father telling him, "Daddy, just tell the truth! Daddy, just tell the truth!" She KNEW that the father was not allowed to communicate with his son! Why did she want to further emotionally damage the child?

OKDHS, why was your Bair Foundation counselor and foster parent instructed in the courtroom to tell the children that their father lied under oath?

OKDHS, why did your Bair Foundation counselor tell the judge that the children were too confused to visit their father or their grandmother?

OKDHS, why were the children reportedly placed in Extensive Grief Therapy? Expenses for Extensive Grief Therapy would have been unnecessary had the children been returned to the grandmother's home. Of course Medicare paid the cost through provisions of the ASFA. It's just more rewards and bonuses for OKDHS.

OKDHS, why did your caseworker tell the grandmother that she could visit with the children any time she wanted to and then a month later tell her that she was defying the judge's ruling? Where is the e-mail that the caseworker said she sent to the grandmother? It never left her computer!

OKDHS, why didn't OKDHS want the parents to get the help that the father asked for? And, why, after it was learned that a 'letter' was said to have been mailed to the parents, was the father forced to stop attending the parenting classes? Where is the proof of allegations? There is no proof.

OKDHS, why did you want me to lie and tell you that the father molested the children? This grandmother is NOT a liar and will not promote your lies and false accusations!

OKDHS, why did you want the grandparent to sign the GAG order?

OKDHS, why do you say the grandmother could not protect the children. Parents and grandparents are not routine passengers on school buses. The Oklahoma Bullying Law needs to be enforced!

OKDHS, why did the home study worker require the name and address of all of the grandmother's siblings?

OKDHS, why can't you find all six grievances that were mailed certified mail to the Client Advocacy Office? What happened to the last three?

OKDHS, why did you close down your Adoptions Website after the 'lost' grieviences were mailed?

OKDHS, what is the date of the letter that was mailed to the family telling them about parenting classes and anger management classes? Where is the parent's copy of the letter?

OKDHS, why didn't your PEMS caregivers give the child his medication as prescribed? What did you do with the medicine that the grandmother and mother brought to you? Why was the child in such severe abdominal pain that the kinship home called the grandmother for help his first day in the home? Why didn't the Intake Worker tell the PEMS staff about the reactions to the medication? His crying with severe abdominal pain is a clear sign of OKDHS abuse and neglect!

OKDHS, where are the scientific clocks that the grandmother delivered to the Adoptions Supervisor? Why can't they be given to the children as learning tools? Are the prongs that are used to attach to fruits and vegetables considered "sexually explicit" or too difficult to use to teach children science? Who has the clocks? What's "sexually explicit" about teaching children about science and mathematics?

OKDHS, where are the "sexually explicit" dolls that the grandmother described as educational if used as she explained? How can measuring the length, height and weight of the doll be sexually explicit? If the dolls are 'sexually explicit', why won't you return them to the grandmother so they can be taken back to Hobby Lobby so their purchasing agent will know they are selling "sexually explicit" items? Could it be that your caseworker wanted to use the dolls to educate his/her own children in mathematics and horticulture? Where are the dolls? The dolls, appearing to be fully clothed in recreation clothing, did not appear to be "sexually explicit" toys. In what way have you determined that the dolls are "sexually explicit?"

OKDHS, why was the grandmother advised by the OKDHS Field Representative to bring all of the children's educational materials, musical instruments and life insurance policies to OKDHS for disposal? Why don't you want the children to learn things that are good for them?

OKDHS, why did you place the children in a foster home where the highest education the parents had was a high school diploma? Why is the B.S. degree in education held by the grandmother not considered sufficient for teaching these children?
OKDHS, why did you tell the home study worker from North Care that the grandmother knew all about how the grandchildren's bones were broken while they were living in the foster home?

OKDHS, why did you place a sexually exploited child in the home with these children so they, too, would be sexually exploited by the child?

OKDHS, why was the sexually exploited child allowed to visit his parent who was incarcerated and these children NOT permitted any communication with their father?

OKDHS, why did you ask the North Care worker to have the grandmother sign a "GAG" order? The North Care worker said it was necessary for the GAG order form to be signed if the grandmother expected to see the grandchildren again. Needless to say, the form has still not been signed.

OKDHS, why did your intake worker tell the father that it is "wrong for a father to touch his child?" Why did your intake worker tell the father and his son that it is wrong for a father to teach a child to put bath powder on after a shower or bath?

OKDHS, why did you take the Final Adoption papers to the judge who was ordered off the case by the Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma?

OKDHS, why do you hold 'secret' hearings to bring lies to the court? Why can't you face the ones you are accusing? Are you cowards or did you not want to be caught in the act of lying to the judge?

OKDHS, why do you tell fathers to help the children and then when they do help, they're accused of molesting the children if they TOUCH the child?

OKDHS, why weren't the teachers who TOUCHED the boy also accused of molestation? They even changed his underwear when he had stomach problems from the medication! Teachers are allowed to molest children but fathers are not allowed to touch his child? Why didn't the teachers call the parent or grandmother when the child had problems?

OKDHS, why don't you tell Oklahomans how much money you have received as rewards and bonuses from the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997 for taking in more and more children, emotionally destroying them, fostering them out and then adopting them to people YOU want them to live with AFTER you report vicious lies to the court?

OKDHS, why are you so money hungry that you want more than anything else to emotionally destroy any little child you can get your hands on?

OKDHS, please read "Organized Crime Management in America" (all SIX parts) by James Roger Brown and then look yourself in the mirror.

OKDHS, please, if you're not afraid, read "Men and Boys Deserve Better" telling about the National Men's Rights Congress of 2004.

OKDHS, why do you admit in your review of application of the ASFA that you don't know how to work with the father of a child? Why can't you learn how to work with a father? Is it because the majority of the caseworkers are females who have been rejected (divorced) by a man in their life?

OKDHS, please read Luke 17:2. This reporter sure doesn't want to be in your place as long as the ASFA is in force!

CPS and Organized Crime Report

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Please read the "National Advisory on Organized Crime Operating in the Child Protection System. The subject for the article is "CPS = the *New Age Mob*. Look for it on your internet service under either title. The article will be a real eye-opener for those who will take the time to read it. Read about what CPS employees are TOLD to do in order to take more children into custody and keep them inside the system the remainder of their life.

I hope each reader of this ripoff report will take the time to locate the full report about 5-year-old Rilya Wilson, a child who has been missing since February 2001 (if living, Rilya is now nine years old). As of May 2001, DHS was still collecting money and sending it to foster parents for her care. Where is Rilya?

READ "Critical Thinking Skills and Protecting Your Family From False Child Abuse Allegations" by Roger Brown.

Mr. Brown's Neighborhood is a place where the corrupt, fraudulent, and elitist will feel like they are having a really bad day. Practitioners of pseudo logic, pseudo science, political extremism, junk science psychology and social work are likely to leave the report feeling totally exposed.

Knowledge is power. Read the articles that Mr. Roger Brown submitted to the Sentinel News about Organized Crime. They are:

PART ONE: "Rooting Out the Roots of Evil"
PART TWO: "Harvesting Children for Conditional Federal Funding; by the Numbers"
PART THREE: "How Organized Crime in Mental Health and Social Work Supports Organized Crime in Government Agencies and Programs"
PART FOUR: "How Mental Health and Social Work Uses Logical Fallacies to Create Junk Science Exploited by Organized Crime in Government Agencies and Programs"
PART FIVE: "This is America! How Can This Be Done to Me?"
PART SIX: "Doing George Orwell Proud - A Child Protection System That Ensures the Abuse of Every Child"

An Ethiopian Proverb states, "Evil enters like a needle and spreads like an oak tree."

Please take special interest in reading Parts Four, Five and Six of Mr. Brown's Newspaper Articles. Mr. Brown KNOWS about Organized Crime in Government.

The longer DHS stays in power destroying little children and families, the stronger the 'oak tree' will become. PLEASE HELP SAVE THE CHILDREN!

Write to your Congressmen/Women! Expose the corruption within the Department of Human Services. SAVE LITTLE CHILDREN! Close the doors to the "Child Protection Services" until laws can be passed that will SAVE the children from their destructive activities.

It's all about MONEY and EXPERIMENTING WITH CHILDREN! DHS receives millions of dollars in refunds, awards, bonuses and other incentives for each child they take into custody. It's not just robbing Medicare and Social Security. It's mainly about destroying little children for profit.

Congressional Interest in DHS Abusive System

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Thank you, Christine. This reporter will write to Senator Daschle. This reporter also plans to contact ACLU and look into filing a Class Action Suit against DHS's abusive Chile Protection System.

This reporter wonders why the Juvenile Judge who abandoned her little ADOPTED child wasn't prosecuted as other US citizens are? Which US citizen would be allowed to keep his/her children IN THEIR HOME if the child was left home alone, barefooted and frightened so badly at the situation, that they child ran barfooted down the street looking for her Juvenile Judge Adopted Mother? (If this reporter recalls correctly, according to the news report, the Final Adoption was handled by the Juvenile Judge that later adoped the little girl.) It's totally unbelievable that a person in that official capacity would INTENTIONALLY abandon a young child to satisify her own desires! Poor little child! First, the little child has to be emotionally tortured by CPS. Now, the little child is being emotionally tortured by the Juvenile Judge who adopted the young child. How can this happen in America? Poor little child. How can she survive through such horrendous emotional damages? This reporter hopes that someone will be able to help this little girl who has been so badly maimed by CPS and the Juvenile Justice System.

Of course the fearful abandonment of the little child will bring in more money to the CPS System through DHS Contracting Counselors. In this child abuse and neglect case, the parent will likely receive NO help for the emotional distress forced on the little Adopted child, who had already been emotionally destroyed by the Adoption.

When will little children receive adequate help from the emotional destruction CPS forces on them? Children need to be adopted by family members who are willing and able to adopt them! There's NO need for CPS to emotionally destroy a young child!

Children spend years trying to recover from the devestation forced upon them by this Agency of our federal, state and county government.

Who is responsible for trying to unify families once the child is grown? DHS has an office designated as a 'family reunification' but who is permitted to verify that their reunification efforts are being coordinated.

When a child who has been emotionally separated from his/her family by CPS destruction efforts, is eighteen, the child and/or his family should be able to PERSONALLY check the records to see if contact is desired. There's NO checks and balances to the CPS reunification system!

This reporter is aware of a person who was taken into custody of DHS when twelve years of age. There is NO way for that person to KNOW for sure if any of his relatives are searching for him. The person has been told that court actions must be filed in order to see if anyone in the family has tried to make contact. Then, there is the question of "how is the person to KNOW that the information is correct?"

YOU CANNOT TRUST THE ORGANIZATION THAT IS DESIGNED TO EMOTIONALLY DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES! This reporter can just hear CPS now say in their reports, "No! Nobody in your family has contacted anyone in DHS trying to find out if you are still alive?" Then, if a family member is searching endlessly to know the whereabouts of the missing family mamber, the truth WILL NOT be permitted release. "It is NOT ACCEPTABLE!"

Juvenile Judge's orders are NOT ACCEPTABLE to CPS! CPS does NOT have to comply with the judge's rulings!

CPS HAS POWER OVER THE COURTS OF OUR LAND! CPS avoids following the judge's rulings! They can always figure out a way to ignore the judicial rulings.

REMOVE THE POWER FROM CPS! Close the doors of CPS until they can learn how to work with families, how to work with children, how to work with fathers and above all, how to stop emotionally destroying every child they take into custody.

Just this week, it was announced over TV that more foster parents were needed in Oklahoma because CPS has taken more little childrn in to emotionally destroy them. The hard part is that most foster parents WANT to help children. When they help children, they're helping CPS Adopt the child outside the family. They're not helping the family. If a foster home doesn't follow EVERY recommendation that CPS and their contractors tell them, the children will be further emotionally destroyed as they're moved to another foster home.

CPS IS NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF HELPING FAMILIES! Their rules and regulations SAY they're are to make every effort to return the children to the home. THAT IS SELDOM DONE! Check the records! See how many children are returned to family members within 15 months. Oklahoma Laws state that if CPS can figure out a way to keep the children in foster care for 15 months out of the last 24 months, they have more rights to take all parenting rights away and adopt them to the foster family or to strangers of THEIR choosing.

Read the Oklahoma Law relating to CPS custody time limits.

Read the "2002 Update for the State Plan for Services to children and youth 2000 - 2004. Page 4 states under Safety Outcomes: "Oklahoma's families will live in an environment safe from violence, crime and injury." THAT OUTCOME CANNOT BE ACCOMPLISHED UNTIL THE DOORS OF CPS ARE CLOSED OR UNTIL THEY CAN LEARN HOW TO HELP FAMILIES IN NEED. CPS is in the profession of EMOTIONALLY INJURING and NEGLECTING and ABUSING CHILDREN. CPS INTENTIONALLY injures, neglects and abuses little children! It's their duty!

READ THE ENTIRE DOCUMENT. AND, while you're reading it, see how CPS fits into the plans to destroy homes, emotionally injure children and ultimately destroy American citizens.

Page 11 states: "During 2001, in an effort to EXPEDITE the placement of children for adoption, the Adoption Transition Project (a project serving children with a reasonable expectation of being adopted within SIX months) was initiated in two DHS areas with the highest concentration of children awating adoption.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE WHOLE DOCUMENT! It will help you understand why our little children are being intentionally emotionally destroyed! IT'S TOTALLY UNBELIEVABLE!

CPS wants children adopted out so they can receive more awards and bonuses and contractors can keep their money flowing into their pockets. IT'S NOT PROTECTION OF CHILDREN! IT'S PROTECTION OF THE POCKETBOOK!

CPS should be closed down! Parents need to be helped! Parenting classes should be available to parents desiring to learn to be better parents! Parents shouldn't have to beg for help.

Public Announcements should be made regarding how to enroll in family help classes. When a parent calls CPS about their search for classes they think will help the family, CPS should HELP the parent find a class near their home.

Of course that fearful abandonment of the little adopted child will bring in more money to CPS through counselors. WHEN WILL THIS STOP!

Please Relay Name of CPS Yahoo Reform Groups

AUTHOR: L - (U.S.A.)

Ann, I think there are two Yahoo groups trying to help American citizens fight CPS's emotional abuse. Numerous reports are in the Yahoo Support Groups. The "Iconocast Newspaper" in Texas placed a report in their newspaper about some of the abusive activities being promoted in Oklahoma. More newspaper reports need to be made so corrections can be established.
Perhaps some CPS abuse reporters would like to join either of the groups. These support groups need to be advertised to parents and relatives of those who are being abused and neglected by the CPS System of FORCED family indoctrination.

CPS consists of employees who likely have little children. Perhaps their children need to be made a part of the ASFA reward and bonus benefits so they can be further rewarded while they TRY to fight the lies of their own co-workers. The CPS system is SICK and nobody cares to try to find the cause of their sickness. Committee after and committee and study group after study group have all tried to get to the bottom of the sickness in CPS. Reports are made. Payoffs are made to quiet the recommendations. The remedy is CLOSE THE DOORS UNTIL CPS CAN HELP FAMILIES INSTEAD OF DESTROY FAMILIES AND WORSE OF ALL, DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN AND THEIR HOPE OF A NORMAL CHILDHOOD.

What DHS employee would want their child taken into custody by liars? It wouldn't take many children of DHS employees taken into custody for them to learn how abusive the system is to little children and parents!

These children have been Adopted to the Foster Parents and the ADOPTION FINALIZED BY THE JUVENILE JUDGE WHO WAS ORDERED BY THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA TO STEP DOWN FROM THE CASE. THE JUDGE WAS ORDERED OFF THE CASE BECAUSE SHE VISITED WITH THE JURORS BEFORE THEY HAD HEARD ALL THE CASE AND BECAUSE SHE VISITED WITH WITNESSES ABOUT THE CASE BEFORE THEY HAD TESTIFIED DURING THE TRIAL. HOW CAN A JUDGE WHO WAS ORDERED OFF THE CASE CANCEL A SCHEDULED HEARING BY THE JUDGE HEARING THE CASE AND IN IN THE PLACE OF THE SCHEDULED HEARING, FINALIZE THE ADOPTION?

DHS CASEWORKERS KNOW HOW TO DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN! DHS CASEWORKERS AND CONTRACTORS KNOW HOW TO DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN! THEY'RE PROFESSIONALS AT CHILD DESTRUCTION INCLUDING (1)MENTAL ABUSE, (2)PHYSICAL ABUSE AND (3)EMOTIONAL ABUSE!

Legislators TRY to devise laws to help families. One such law was the Oklahoma Bullying Law. That law will NOT be enforced by any school official. That law requires that schools establish a parent group OR community action committee to relate to student bodies to help children learn to stop bullying other students.

EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO RECEIVE AN EQUAL EDUCATION WITHOUT BULLYING. Bullying comes from the home. Parents say, "Well, my child needs some way to vent their frustrations. Let them bully younger or less aggressive students. The bullying helps MY child!"

BULLYING SHOULD BE STOPPED! If the Oklahoma Bullying Law was enforced, more children could receive a better and safer education. Bullying demeans a child! Oklahoma Legislators need to KNOW that the Oklahoma Bullying Law is NOT being used in many, if any, Oklahoma schools. READ "THE OKLAHOMA BULLYING LAW" for yourself. Inquire as to who applies the Bullying Law in your local school.

The incident on the schoolbus was a case of bullying using sexual assault. The bullies are rewarded ... because they are members of the football team or some other school sponsored activity. "Let them go, they're are an important part of the football team. It's OK for them to assault younger students."

School officials even make the child feel he/she is responsible for the bullying. Then, if the child counters the bullying or runs from it, THEY are the ones at fault. The bullied student is the one who suffers! The local school rewards the bullies and DHS continues the emotional destruction of the child. It's their job!

CPS employees need to be held totally accountable for the statements they make in their secret files AND the statements they make to the judges. Juvenile Judges tend to believe EVERY DHS report. ONE big mistake that all juvenile judges need to come to grips with!

YOU CANNOT BELIEVE THE CPS CASEWORKER! YOU CANNOT TRUST THE CPS CASEWORKER TO CARRY OUT THE JUDGE'S ORDERS .... EVER!

This Juvenile Judge stated to the DHS worker, "It looks like CPS has totally failed this family!" Later, the same judge tried his best to reunify the family. Lies were fabricated. Threats were made to the family. Lies were told to the children and foster family. Threats were made to the foster family.

In this case, the home study worker told the family member seeking custody that "the children's bones have been broken and DHS says YOU know all about how their bones were broken. The family member had NO knowledge of bones being broken ... obviously another case intermingled with this case.

Finally, the family member asked the home study worker if she had a date when the bones were reportedly broken. She looked into the DHS report and found that the bones were broken some time between February 2002 and June 2002. DHS took the children into custody AS A RESULT OF THEM BEING SEXUALLY ASSAULTED AND FRIGHTENED ON THEIR SCHOOL BUS on October 2, 2001. The sexual assault occurred on the last Friday in September 2001. NOW, WHO BROKE THEIR BONES AND WHY? HOW COULD THE RELATIVE POSSIBLY KNOW HOW THE BONES WERE BROKEN WHEN THEY WERE IN FOSTER CARE AT THE TIME IT OCCURRED?

The family member, who was protecting the children from a parent who needed medical help, learned about the sexual assault AND delivered a letter to the principal of the local school ASKING THAT THE PRINCIPAL HELP CHILDREN BE SAFE FROM SEXUAL ASSAULTS ON SCHOOL PROPERTY. One of the children was in Kindergarten. The sexual assaulters (BULLIES) have been rewarded by being allowed to continue attending the local school. The bus driver just kept driving KNOWING the assault was going on within five feet of her seat. High School girls came to the rescue of the Kindergarten child. The other child was able to go to the back of the bus to get away from the assaulting (BULLYING) children.

The letter to the school principal brought about excessive questioning and blame on one child. Those questioning the child, accused the child of being the sole cause for the assault. How could a Kindergarten child and a sibling two years older be the cause of a sexual assault on a school bus?

Religious vows were that the couple stay together, "in sickness and in health 'til death do us part." This family did their best to follow Biblical principles. DHS promotes anti-Biblical activities ... lying, fictitious witnesses, etc.

WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO THE THREE GRIEVANCES MAILED TO OKDHS UNDER CERTIFIED MAIL WITH RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED? YOU FIGURE IT OUT!

WHERE ARE THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE THAT THE PARENT IS REPORTEDLY SMOKING? WHY DOESN'T THE PARENT KNOW ABOUT THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE? ANOTHER CASE INTERMINGLED!

WHO ARE THE THREE SIBLINGS REPORTEDLY IN THE FAMILY THAT ABSOLUTELY NO FAMILY MEMBER KNOWS ABOUT? WHY CAN'T DHS OR THEIR CONTRACTOR NAME THOSE SIBLINGS SO THE FAMILY CAN INCLUDE THEM IN FAMILY ACTIVITIES? OBVIOUSLY MORE LIES AND FABRICATIONS!

HOW DID THE CHILDREN'S BONES GET BROKEN?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THE FAMILY BROUGHT TO OKDHS?

WHY DID THE CPS CASEWORKER ORDER THE RELATIVE TO NOT FOLLOW THE JUDGE'S ORDERS UNTIL AFTER SHE HAD SPOKEN TO THE FOSTER PARENTS. WHY DID THE FOSTER PARENTS "FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE" ABIDING WITH THE JUDGE'S ORDERS? OBVIOUSLY, THEY WERE THREATENED VERY HEAVILY OR THE CPS CASEWORKER LIED TO THE RELATIVE.

ARE THE CHILDREN ON "MIND ALTERING DRUGS" AS IS THE NORMAL PRACTICE FOR CHILDREN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED BY CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES?

HOW MUCH WAS THE MEDICAL CONTRACTOR PAID TO PRESCRIBE MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO THE ABUSED CHILD(CHILDREN)?

A relative told one of the parents that if a spouse is ill, the other parent should help the ill parent seek professional medical help. For instance, if a parent has a disease of the liver and does not want to go to a doctor, the other parent should do all possible to get medical help for the ill spouse. DHS SAYS "NO!" "If a parent is ill, move out of the house, take the children with you and get a divorce!"

YES, INDEED! CPS FAILED THIS FAMILY! The Family Assessment Worker failed this family! The Intake Worker severely abused and neglected both children and lied, under oath, about notes she wrote in the DHS report. The intake worker KNEW that one child sometimes had reactions from the prescribed medication. She called the parent a liar and made inhumane accusations against the parent. THEN, she 'resigned' her position to go to work for a DHS contractor.

WONDER HOW SHE GOT THE JOB WITH THE DHS CONTRACTOR SO FAST? WONDER WHY SHE LEFT SO SUDDENLY? WONDER WHY HER PERSONNEL FILE CAN'T BE ANNOTATED THAT SHE ALLOWED THESE CHILDREN TO BE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED BY SHELTER EMPLOYEES. WONDER WHY SHE HAD TO CALL A MAN IN TO HELP HOLD THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED KINDERGARTEN CHILD DOWN "SO SHE WOULDN'T INJURE HERSELF" AS SHE TRIED TO ANSWER THE INTAKE WORKER'S QUESTIONS? WONDER HOW THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED CHILD SPOKE SO FLUENTLY TO THE INTAKE WORKER THAT SHE UNDERSTOOD EVERY WORD SHE SPOKE BUT THEN HAD TO CALL THE MAN IN TO HOLD HER DOWN?

JUST WONDERING HOW ALL THESE THINGS CAN HAPPEN AND BE PROMOTED BY THE "THE CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES" DIVISION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES IN OKLAHOMA.

The same intake worker boldly stated to the parents, "A father should NEVER touch his young child!" "A father should NEVER help his young child with his/her bath!" "A father should NEVER help put clean clothing on a young 4-5 year old child!" "A father should NEVER help or teach his young child to dust bath powder on his/her body AFTER a bath or shower! The intake worker stated, "It is wrong!" "IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!" She even told the young child that the father did something BAD when he helped the children!

If one parent is too ill to properly care for a child, the other parent, according to CPS, should NOT help care for the children. The other parent should, according to instructions from the CPS caseworker, "move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce!"

The recommendation is even written in the OK KIDS files! The parent DID move out of the house, DID take the children and DID get a divorce, against Biblical teachings. CPS should have been happy that the parent followed her recommendations. The children were doing much better once they were moved away from the ill parent BUT ... their sexual assault on the school bus brough failure to the plan.

Why would one CPS worker tell the parent to move out of the home, take the children and get a divorce but then ANOTHER CPS worker hold a Family Assessment Meeting and recommend that all parenting rights be removed from BOTH parents? It's evident! MONEY! MORE CASES! MORE CONTRACTORS! MORE EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED CHILDREN!

DHS has a standard statement they use for EVERYTHING that a parent says/does. They say, "It is unacceptable!" They NEVER tell the parent what IS acceptable! When the parent enrolls in Parenting Classes, he/she is told by CPS caseworkers not to return to class. Why would the caseworker STATE in her records that she mailed a letter to the family recommending "Parenting Assistance Classes" and "Anger Management" and then when the parent 'learned' about the 'letter', enrolls in the class and three weeks later ordered to stop attending the class? YOU FIGURE IT! If the parent got the help he/she needed from those 'recommended' classes, CPS would not get the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA!

It is very UNACCEPTABLE to this reporter for CPS employees to lie and refuse to help parents learn the "CPS acceptable" way of life. Who is to say that the DHS/CPS way of life is ACCEPTABLE? CPSs EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION AND ABUSE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO THIS REPORTER!

Lying to juvenile judges, combining case files, purposefully emotionally injuring children, reporting fictitiuos witnesses, and gathering funds to reward employees and contractors is TOTALLY "unacceptable" behavior for those who are supposed to be "Child Protection Service" workers. LIES ARE TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE ... that is ... except for CPS caseworkers! WHY?

Look at the reports! LIE AFTER LIE! INTERMINGLING OF FILES! WHY do CPS workers combine or intermingle files? Why do they lie to judges? Why do they tell the foster parents TOTAL LIES? Why doesn't DHS want to help Christian parents?

ONE REASON CPS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP A PARENT BEGGING FOR HELP IS SO THEY CAN HAVE TIME TO FABRICATE MORE LIES SO THEY CAN GATHER THE FUNDS FROM THE "ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997" so they can receive the rewards and bonuses provided through that ACT.

ANOTHER REASON TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE THEIR JOB OF EMOTIONALLY INJURING LITTLE CHILDREN, ABUSING LITTLE CHILDREN AND DESTROYING THE FAMILY. THEN CPS ADOPTS THE CHILDREN TO FOSTER PARENTS ... ALL FOR REWARDS FROM THE ASFA!

EVERY CHILD THAT CPS TAKES INTO CUSTODY IS IMMEDIATELY CONSIDERED TO BE EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED AND PLACED ON MEDICARE SO BENEFITS CAN BE FED DOWN TO DHS TO REWARD THEM. EVEN THEIR REPORTERS STATE THAT EVERY CHILD IS EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED ONCE THEY'RE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. THOSE LITTLE CHILDREN ARE SCARED TO DEATH! THAT'S THE WAY CPS WANTS TO HANDLE THEIR JOB! THEN, ONCE THEY'RE TOTALLY EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED, THEY'RE PLACED ON MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO FOR THE BENEFIT OF DHS AND THE ASFA PROVISIONS.

A FURTHER REASON FOR A DHS CASEWORKER TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE JOBS FOR THEM AND THEIR BILLIONS OF CONTACTORS. IF A CONTRACTOR (DOCTOR, COUNSELOR OR ANY PROFESSIONAL ... EVEN FOSTER PARENTS) FAILS TO TOTALLY AGREE WITH DHS AND THEIR ABUSIVE AND EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTIVE SYSTEM, ANOTHER CONTRACTOR WILL BE FOUND WHO WILL ASSURE CPS THAT THEY WILL ABIDE BY DHS/CPS RECOMMENDATIONS.

FOSTER PARENTS 'THINK' THEY ARE HELPING CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS ARE ACTUALLY HELPING DHS ABUSE LITTLE CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS NEED TO REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING THEY SAY OR DO FOR THE CHILDREN IS USED TO HELP CPS DESTROY THE CHILDREN. CPS USES (AND FABRICATES) INFORMATION FROM FOSTER PARENTS TO BRING FURTHER ACCUSATIONS AGAINST RELATIVES.

Children don't understand why they can't go back home and be with their friends and relatives. They don't understand why they can't go to their regular church activities. They are FORCED to believe that their parent(s) are BAD people and told that they never want to see them again. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? IT'S TOTALLY TRUE! One child testified that was what he was told! THAT'S Child Protection Services! That's why children taken into custody of CPS are put through EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY to help them survive the abusive CPS child destruction system.

CPS DOES NOT, IN ANY WAY, WANT TO HELP ANY FAMILY! DHS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP CHILDREN! CPS WANTS TO DESTROY MARRIAGES! LOOK THE CASE OVER! VIRTUALLY EVERY CHILD TAKEN INTO CUSTODY IS FORCED TO GET A DIVORCE SO THEY CAN 'TRY' TO PLACE THE CHILDREN WITH ONE OF THE PARENTS. (?)LAWS ARE PASSED BY THE OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE AND THEN DHS WRITES "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO STAFF IN APPLYING THIS LAW" FOR ALL LAWS. Those 'special instructions to STAFF' essentially negate the law.

CPS admits that EVERY child they take into custody IS emotionally destroyed! When the children are returned to the parents, the children are TOTALLY SCARED TO DEATH that they'll be yanked away from their parents again. They cannot develop normally having the continued emotional fear in their life! BUT, that's what CPS forces on the children they take into custody!

The child is AFRAID that if they say anything to anybody about their family or their relatives or friends, THEY will be the ones who will be taken into custody and further emotionally destroyed. Teachers often ask the children questions about family life. Children are afraid to say anything about their family. Of course, some teachers gain their trust and the children tell about family. Then, that teacher, who has never even met the parents, takes action to have the children removed from the home. One teacher in this case had known the children less than TWO MONTHS when she reported what the child said to her after the sexual assault on the school bus. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

TEACHERS ARE REQUIRED TO REPORT ANYTHING THAT A CHILD SAYS THAT COULD IN ANY WAY INDICATE THE CHILD IS BEING 'ABUSED' (spanked) or 'NEGLECTED' (no swimming pool privilege) as a means of discipline EVEN IF THEY'VE ONLY KNOWN THE CHILD A SHORT TIME.

A check of the records will find that DHS has contractors who 'specialize' in "GRIEF THERAPY" and "EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY." Those contractors are paid through the awards and bonuses of the ASFA and other funds made available to DHS to promote their continued destructive activities.

Furthermore, and of great concern, when a juvenile judge orders an action to take place, DHS caseworkers SHOULD BE FORCED TO COMPLY WITH THOSE ORDERS! CPS EMPLOYEES DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE JUDGE'S ORDERS UNLESS IT IN THE INTEREST OF CHS AND THEIR CHILD DESTRUCTION PLANS.

DHS IS ABOVE THE LAW! THEY DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLY WITH THE RULING OF ANY JUDGE. This statement can be proven again and again by most people involved in DHS custody cases. One DHS worker was ordered, by the judge, to provide a parent with photographs of her children ... as an agreement for relinquishment of parenthood. DHS WILL NOT FOLLOW THOSE ORDERS. THEY DON'T HAVE TO FOLLOW THE JUDGES ORDERS! THEY ARE ABOVE THE JUDGE! Sorry, Juvenile Judges, you need to know that is FACT! OKDHDS employees do not obey YOUR orders! THEY DON'T HAVE TO OBEY YOUR ORDERS!

DHS has far too much power over family life in America! DHS has far too much funds available to their desired disposal! Our federal government (Medicare and Social Security) needs to stop flooding DHS with money not only through their budget but also through the ASFA and other monetary benefits to DHS.

When this reporter sent three grievances to OKDHS regarding the abuse and neglect of these children, DHS says, "the Certified Letter With Return Receipt Requested never reached them." The post office says the big envelope "may have gotten lodged in a mail bag and may NEVER be found." You figure it out! OKDHS KNOWS just what to do! If a grievance is not "MOOT" then it is not received!

In addition, when grievances ARE filed, retaliation is overwhelming on the person filing the grievance! DHS should NOT be allowed to retaliate against children or family members when a grievance is filed! RETALIATION IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!

This reporter submitted three previous grievances about abuse and neglect by the Intake Worker and juvenile shelter medication staff. A copy of all six grievances are recorded in the court records. ONE of the grievances was investigated BUT the reporter is NEVER to know what the investigation revealed.

The Oklahoma governor's office is aware of this case. The Executive Field Director told family members that all clothing, educational materials and insurance policies should be brought to DHS so THEY CAN DISPOSE OF THEM AS THEY SEE FIT!

FAMILY MEMBERS would be happy to forward educational materials to DHS IF they were assured that the educational materials would be used by the children or RETURNED to the family. Educational materials left earlier with CPS caseworkers has reportedly been 'lost, stolen or misplaced' and cannot be given to the children or returned to family members." WHY? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THE FAMILY BROUGHT TO THE CPS WORKER? Some of the educational materials were purchased at Hobby Lobby, which is renowned to be a Christian retail store. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS DELIVERED TO THE CPS PERMANENT PLACEMENT WORKER? WHY CAN'T THEY BE RETURNED TO FAMILY MEMBERS FOR RETURN TO HOBBY LOBBY?

CLOSE CPS UNTIL EMPLOYEES CAN BE FORCED TO TELL THE TRUTH! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN STOP INTERMINGLING CASE RECORDS! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN STOP RECORDING 'FICTITIOUS' WITNESSES IN THEIR FILES! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN HELP FAMILIES IN NEED!

REPEAL THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997. IT FLOODS MONETARY REWARDS AND BONUSES INTO DHS TO REWARD THEM FOR THEIR EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION of little children!

ESTABLISH CHILD CARE UNDER THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM! MOST JUVENILE JUDGES CARE ABOUT CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. JUVENILE JUDGES USUALLY WANT WHAT IS BEST FOR CHILDREN ... AND THAT IS NORMALLY WITH FAMILY MEMBERS. VERY FEW CPS WORKERS CARE ABOUT CHILDREN ... IT'S MONEY TO THEM. CHILDREN MEANS MORE MONEY FLOWING INTO CPS UNDER THE PRESENT SYSTEM!

IT'S ALSO STRANGE THAT THE OKDHS ADOPTIONS SITE WAS CLOSED AFTER A GRIEVANCE WAS FILED. TRY THE SITE YOURSELF. IT CLOSED AFTER THIS REPORTER FILED A GRIEVANCE REGARDING THE SITE. STRANGE!

Perhaps some CPS abuse reporters would like to join either of the groups. These support groups need to be advertised to parents and relatives of those who are being abused and neglected by the CPS System of FORCED family indoctrination.

CPS consists of employees who likely have little children. Perhaps their children need to be made a part of the ASFA reward and bonus benefits so they can be further rewarded while they TRY to fight the lies of their own co-workers. The CPS system is SICK and nobody cares to try to find the cause of their sickness. Committee after and committee and study group after study group have all tried to get to the bottom of the sickness in CPS. Reports are made. Payoffs are made to quiet the recommendations. The remedy is CLOSE THE DOORS UNTIL CPS CAN HELP FAMILIES INSTEAD OF DESTROY FAMILIES AND WORSE OF ALL, DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN AND THEIR HOPE OF A NORMAL CHILDHOOD.

What DHS employee would want their child taken into custody by liars? It wouldn't take many children of DHS employees taken into custody for them to learn how abusive the system is to little children and parents!

These children have been Adopted to the Foster Parents and the ADOPTION FINALIZED BY THE JUVENILE JUDGE WHO WAS ORDERED BY THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA TO STEP DOWN FROM THE CASE. THE JUDGE WAS ORDERED OFF THE CASE BECAUSE SHE VISITED WITH THE JURORS BEFORE THEY HAD HEARD ALL THE CASE AND BECAUSE SHE VISITED WITH WITNESSES ABOUT THE CASE BEFORE THEY HAD TESTIFIED DURING THE TRIAL. HOW CAN A JUDGE WHO WAS ORDERED OFF THE CASE CANCEL A SCHEDULED HEARING BY THE JUDGE HEARING THE CASE AND IN IN THE PLACE OF THE SCHEDULED HEARING, FINALIZE THE ADOPTION?

DHS CASEWORKERS KNOW HOW TO DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN! DHS CASEWORKERS AND CONTRACTORS KNOW HOW TO DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN! THEY'RE PROFESSIONALS AT CHILD DESTRUCTION INCLUDING (1)MENTAL ABUSE, (2)PHYSICAL ABUSE AND (3)EMOTIONAL ABUSE!

Legislators TRY to devise laws to help families. One such law was the Oklahoma Bullying Law. That law will NOT be enforced by any school official. That law requires that schools establish a parent group OR community action committee to relate to student bodies to help children learn to stop bullying other students.

EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO RECEIVE AN EQUAL EDUCATION WITHOUT BULLYING. Bullying comes from the home. Parents say, "Well, my child needs some way to vent their frustrations. Let them bully younger or less aggressive students. The bullying helps MY child!"

BULLYING SHOULD BE STOPPED! If the Oklahoma Bullying Law was enforced, more children could receive a better and safer education. Bullying demeans a child! Oklahoma Legislators need to KNOW that the Oklahoma Bullying Law is NOT being used in many, if any, Oklahoma schools. READ "THE OKLAHOMA BULLYING LAW" for yourself. Inquire as to who applies the Bullying Law in your local school.

The incident on the schoolbus was a case of bullying using sexual assault. The bullies are rewarded ... because they are members of the football team or some other school sponsored activity. "Let them go, they're are an important part of the football team. It's OK for them to assault younger students."

School officials even make the child feel he/she is responsible for the bullying. Then, if the child counters the bullying or runs from it, THEY are the ones at fault. The bullied student is the one who suffers! The local school rewards the bullies and DHS continues the emotional destruction of the child. It's their job!

CPS employees need to be held totally accountable for the statements they make in their secret files AND the statements they make to the judges. Juvenile Judges tend to believe EVERY DHS report. ONE big mistake that all juvenile judges need to come to grips with!

YOU CANNOT BELIEVE THE CPS CASEWORKER! YOU CANNOT TRUST THE CPS CASEWORKER TO CARRY OUT THE JUDGE'S ORDERS .... EVER!

This Juvenile Judge stated to the DHS worker, "It looks like CPS has totally failed this family!" Later, the same judge tried his best to reunify the family. Lies were fabricated. Threats were made to the family. Lies were told to the children and foster family. Threats were made to the foster family.

In this case, the home study worker told the family member seeking custody that "the children's bones have been broken and DHS says YOU know all about how their bones were broken. The family member had NO knowledge of bones being broken ... obviously another case intermingled with this case.

Finally, the family member asked the home study worker if she had a date when the bones were reportedly broken. She looked into the DHS report and found that the bones were broken some time between February 2002 and June 2002. DHS took the children into custody AS A RESULT OF THEM BEING SEXUALLY ASSAULTED AND FRIGHTENED ON THEIR SCHOOL BUS on October 2, 2001. The sexual assault occurred on the last Friday in September 2001. NOW, WHO BROKE THEIR BONES AND WHY? HOW COULD THE RELATIVE POSSIBLY KNOW HOW THE BONES WERE BROKEN WHEN THEY WERE IN FOSTER CARE AT THE TIME IT OCCURRED?

The family member, who was protecting the children from a parent who needed medical help, learned about the sexual assault AND delivered a letter to the principal of the local school ASKING THAT THE PRINCIPAL HELP CHILDREN BE SAFE FROM SEXUAL ASSAULTS ON SCHOOL PROPERTY. One of the children was in Kindergarten. The sexual assaulters (BULLIES) have been rewarded by being allowed to continue attending the local school. The bus driver just kept driving KNOWING the assault was going on within five feet of her seat. High School girls came to the rescue of the Kindergarten child. The other child was able to go to the back of the bus to get away from the assaulting (BULLYING) children.

The letter to the school principal brought about excessive questioning and blame on one child. Those questioning the child, accused the child of being the sole cause for the assault. How could a Kindergarten child and a sibling two years older be the cause of a sexual assault on a school bus?

Religious vows were that the couple stay together, "in sickness and in health 'til death do us part." This family did their best to follow Biblical principles. DHS promotes anti-Biblical activities ... lying, fictitious witnesses, etc.

WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO THE THREE GRIEVANCES MAILED TO OKDHS UNDER CERTIFIED MAIL WITH RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED? YOU FIGURE IT OUT!

WHERE ARE THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE THAT THE PARENT IS REPORTEDLY SMOKING? WHY DOESN'T THE PARENT KNOW ABOUT THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE? ANOTHER CASE INTERMINGLED!

WHO ARE THE THREE SIBLINGS REPORTEDLY IN THE FAMILY THAT ABSOLUTELY NO FAMILY MEMBER KNOWS ABOUT? WHY CAN'T DHS OR THEIR CONTRACTOR NAME THOSE SIBLINGS SO THE FAMILY CAN INCLUDE THEM IN FAMILY ACTIVITIES? OBVIOUSLY MORE LIES AND FABRICATIONS!

HOW DID THE CHILDREN'S BONES GET BROKEN?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THE FAMILY BROUGHT TO OKDHS?

WHY DID THE CPS CASEWORKER ORDER THE RELATIVE TO NOT FOLLOW THE JUDGE'S ORDERS UNTIL AFTER SHE HAD SPOKEN TO THE FOSTER PARENTS. WHY DID THE FOSTER PARENTS "FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE" ABIDING WITH THE JUDGE'S ORDERS? OBVIOUSLY, THEY WERE THREATENED VERY HEAVILY OR THE CPS CASEWORKER LIED TO THE RELATIVE.

ARE THE CHILDREN ON "MIND ALTERING DRUGS" AS IS THE NORMAL PRACTICE FOR CHILDREN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED BY CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES?

HOW MUCH WAS THE MEDICAL CONTRACTOR PAID TO PRESCRIBE MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO THE ABUSED CHILD(CHILDREN)?

A relative told one of the parents that if a spouse is ill, the other parent should help the ill parent seek professional medical help. For instance, if a parent has a disease of the liver and does not want to go to a doctor, the other parent should do all possible to get medical help for the ill spouse. DHS SAYS "NO!" "If a parent is ill, move out of the house, take the children with you and get a divorce!"

YES, INDEED! CPS FAILED THIS FAMILY! The Family Assessment Worker failed this family! The Intake Worker severely abused and neglected both children and lied, under oath, about notes she wrote in the DHS report. The intake worker KNEW that one child sometimes had reactions from the prescribed medication. She called the parent a liar and made inhumane accusations against the parent. THEN, she 'resigned' her position to go to work for a DHS contractor.

WONDER HOW SHE GOT THE JOB WITH THE DHS CONTRACTOR SO FAST? WONDER WHY SHE LEFT SO SUDDENLY? WONDER WHY HER PERSONNEL FILE CAN'T BE ANNOTATED THAT SHE ALLOWED THESE CHILDREN TO BE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED BY SHELTER EMPLOYEES. WONDER WHY SHE HAD TO CALL A MAN IN TO HELP HOLD THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED KINDERGARTEN CHILD DOWN "SO SHE WOULDN'T INJURE HERSELF" AS SHE TRIED TO ANSWER THE INTAKE WORKER'S QUESTIONS? WONDER HOW THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED CHILD SPOKE SO FLUENTLY TO THE INTAKE WORKER THAT SHE UNDERSTOOD EVERY WORD SHE SPOKE BUT THEN HAD TO CALL THE MAN IN TO HOLD HER DOWN?

JUST WONDERING HOW ALL THESE THINGS CAN HAPPEN AND BE PROMOTED BY THE "THE CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES" DIVISION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES IN OKLAHOMA.

The same intake worker boldly stated to the parents, "A father should NEVER touch his young child!" "A father should NEVER help his young child with his/her bath!" "A father should NEVER help put clean clothing on a young 4-5 year old child!" "A father should NEVER help or teach his young child to dust bath powder on his/her body AFTER a bath or shower! The intake worker stated, "It is wrong!" "IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!" She even told the young child that the father did something BAD when he helped the children!

If one parent is too ill to properly care for a child, the other parent, according to CPS, should NOT help care for the children. The other parent should, according to instructions from the CPS caseworker, "move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce!"

The recommendation is even written in the OK KIDS files! The parent DID move out of the house, DID take the children and DID get a divorce, against Biblical teachings. CPS should have been happy that the parent followed her recommendations. The children were doing much better once they were moved away from the ill parent BUT ... their sexual assault on the school bus brough failure to the plan.

Why would one CPS worker tell the parent to move out of the home, take the children and get a divorce but then ANOTHER CPS worker hold a Family Assessment Meeting and recommend that all parenting rights be removed from BOTH parents? It's evident! MONEY! MORE CASES! MORE CONTRACTORS! MORE EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED CHILDREN!

DHS has a standard statement they use for EVERYTHING that a parent says/does. They say, "It is unacceptable!" They NEVER tell the parent what IS acceptable! When the parent enrolls in Parenting Classes, he/she is told by CPS caseworkers not to return to class. Why would the caseworker STATE in her records that she mailed a letter to the family recommending "Parenting Assistance Classes" and "Anger Management" and then when the parent 'learned' about the 'letter', enrolls in the class and three weeks later ordered to stop attending the class? YOU FIGURE IT! If the parent got the help he/she needed from those 'recommended' classes, CPS would not get the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA!

It is very UNACCEPTABLE to this reporter for CPS employees to lie and refuse to help parents learn the "CPS acceptable" way of life. Who is to say that the DHS/CPS way of life is ACCEPTABLE? CPSs EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION AND ABUSE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO THIS REPORTER!

Lying to juvenile judges, combining case files, purposefully emotionally injuring children, reporting fictitiuos witnesses, and gathering funds to reward employees and contractors is TOTALLY "unacceptable" behavior for those who are supposed to be "Child Protection Service" workers. LIES ARE TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE ... that is ... except for CPS caseworkers! WHY?

Look at the reports! LIE AFTER LIE! INTERMINGLING OF FILES! WHY do CPS workers combine or intermingle files? Why do they lie to judges? Why do they tell the foster parents TOTAL LIES? Why doesn't DHS want to help Christian parents?

ONE REASON CPS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP A PARENT BEGGING FOR HELP IS SO THEY CAN HAVE TIME TO FABRICATE MORE LIES SO THEY CAN GATHER THE FUNDS FROM THE "ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997" so they can receive the rewards and bonuses provided through that ACT.

ANOTHER REASON TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE THEIR JOB OF EMOTIONALLY INJURING LITTLE CHILDREN, ABUSING LITTLE CHILDREN AND DESTROYING THE FAMILY. THEN CPS ADOPTS THE CHILDREN TO FOSTER PARENTS ... ALL FOR REWARDS FROM THE ASFA!

EVERY CHILD THAT CPS TAKES INTO CUSTODY IS IMMEDIATELY CONSIDERED TO BE EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED AND PLACED ON MEDICARE SO BENEFITS CAN BE FED DOWN TO DHS TO REWARD THEM. EVEN THEIR REPORTERS STATE THAT EVERY CHILD IS EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED ONCE THEY'RE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. THOSE LITTLE CHILDREN ARE SCARED TO DEATH! THAT'S THE WAY CPS WANTS TO HANDLE THEIR JOB! THEN, ONCE THEY'RE TOTALLY EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED, THEY'RE PLACED ON MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO FOR THE BENEFIT OF DHS AND THE ASFA PROVISIONS.

A FURTHER REASON FOR A DHS CASEWORKER TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE JOBS FOR THEM AND THEIR BILLIONS OF CONTACTORS. IF A CONTRACTOR (DOCTOR, COUNSELOR OR ANY PROFESSIONAL ... EVEN FOSTER PARENTS) FAILS TO TOTALLY AGREE WITH DHS AND THEIR ABUSIVE AND EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTIVE SYSTEM, ANOTHER CONTRACTOR WILL BE FOUND WHO WILL ASSURE CPS THAT THEY WILL ABIDE BY DHS/CPS RECOMMENDATIONS.

FOSTER PARENTS 'THINK' THEY ARE HELPING CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS ARE ACTUALLY HELPING DHS ABUSE LITTLE CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS NEED TO REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING THEY SAY OR DO FOR THE CHILDREN IS USED TO HELP CPS DESTROY THE CHILDREN. CPS USES (AND FABRICATES) INFORMATION FROM FOSTER PARENTS TO BRING FURTHER ACCUSATIONS AGAINST RELATIVES.

Children don't understand why they can't go back home and be with their friends and relatives. They don't understand why they can't go to their regular church activities. They are FORCED to believe that their parent(s) are BAD people and told that they never want to see them again. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? IT'S TOTALLY TRUE! One child testified that was what he was told! THAT'S Child Protection Services! That's why children taken into custody of CPS are put through EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY to help them survive the abusive CPS child destruction system.

CPS DOES NOT, IN ANY WAY, WANT TO HELP ANY FAMILY! DHS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP CHILDREN! CPS WANTS TO DESTROY MARRIAGES! LOOK THE CASE OVER! VIRTUALLY EVERY CHILD TAKEN INTO CUSTODY IS FORCED TO GET A DIVORCE SO THEY CAN 'TRY' TO PLACE THE CHILDREN WITH ONE OF THE PARENTS. (?)LAWS ARE PASSED BY THE OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE AND THEN DHS WRITES "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO STAFF IN APPLYING THIS LAW" FOR ALL LAWS. Those 'special instructions to STAFF' essentially negate the law.

CPS admits that EVERY child they take into custody IS emotionally destroyed! When the children are returned to the parents, the children are TOTALLY SCARED TO DEATH that they'll be yanked away from their parents again. They cannot develop normally having the continued emotional fear in their life! BUT, that's what CPS forces on the children they take into custody!

The child is AFRAID that if they say anything to anybody about their family or their relatives or friends, THEY will be the ones who will be taken into custody and further emotionally destroyed. Teachers often ask the children questions about family life. Children are afraid to say anything about their family. Of course, some teachers gain their trust and the children tell about family. Then, that teacher, who has never even met the parents, takes action to have the children removed from the home. One teacher in this case had known the children less than TWO MONTHS when she reported what the child said to her after the sexual assault on the school bus. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

TEACHERS ARE REQUIRED TO REPORT ANYTHING THAT A CHILD SAYS THAT COULD IN ANY WAY INDICATE THE CHILD IS BEING 'ABUSED' (spanked) or 'NEGLECTED' (no swimming pool privilege) as a means of discipline EVEN IF THEY'VE ONLY KNOWN THE CHILD A SHORT TIME.

A check of the records will find that DHS has contractors who 'specialize' in "GRIEF THERAPY" and "EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY." Those contractors are paid through the awards and bonuses of the ASFA and other funds made available to DHS to promote their continued destructive activities.

Furthermore, and of great concern, when a juvenile judge orders an action to take place, DHS caseworkers SHOULD BE FORCED TO COMPLY WITH THOSE ORDERS! CPS EMPLOYEES DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE JUDGE'S ORDERS UNLESS IT IN THE INTEREST OF CHS AND THEIR CHILD DESTRUCTION PLANS.

DHS IS ABOVE THE LAW! THEY DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLY WITH THE RULING OF ANY JUDGE. This statement can be proven again and again by most people involved in DHS custody cases. One DHS worker was ordered, by the judge, to provide a parent with photographs of her children ... as an agreement for relinquishment of parenthood. DHS WILL NOT FOLLOW THOSE ORDERS. THEY DON'T HAVE TO FOLLOW THE JUDGES ORDERS! THEY ARE ABOVE THE JUDGE! Sorry, Juvenile Judges, you need to know that is FACT! OKDHDS employees do not obey YOUR orders! THEY DON'T HAVE TO OBEY YOUR ORDERS!

DHS has far too much power over family life in America! DHS has far too much funds available to their desired disposal! Our federal government (Medicare and Social Security) needs to stop flooding DHS with money not only through their budget but also through the ASFA and other monetary benefits to DHS.

When this reporter sent three grievances to OKDHS regarding the abuse and neglect of these children, DHS says, "the Certified Letter With Return Receipt Requested never reached them." The post office says the big envelope "may have gotten lodged in a mail bag and may NEVER be found." You figure it out! OKDHS KNOWS just what to do! If a grievance is not "MOOT" then it is not received!

In addition, when grievances ARE filed, retaliation is overwhelming on the person filing the grievance! DHS should NOT be allowed to retaliate against children or family members when a grievance is filed! RETALIATION IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!

This reporter submitted three previous grievances about abuse and neglect by the Intake Worker and juvenile shelter medication staff. A copy of all six grievances are recorded in the court records. ONE of the grievances was investigated BUT the reporter is NEVER to know what the investigation revealed.

The Oklahoma governor's office is aware of this case. The Executive Field Director told family members that all clothing, educational materials and insurance policies should be brought to DHS so THEY CAN DISPOSE OF THEM AS THEY SEE FIT!

FAMILY MEMBERS would be happy to forward educational materials to DHS IF they were assured that the educational materials would be used by the children or RETURNED to the family. Educational materials left earlier with CPS caseworkers has reportedly been 'lost, stolen or misplaced' and cannot be given to the children or returned to family members." WHY? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THE FAMILY BROUGHT TO THE CPS WORKER? Some of the educational materials were purchased at Hobby Lobby, which is renowned to be a Christian retail store. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS DELIVERED TO THE CPS PERMANENT PLACEMENT WORKER? WHY CAN'T THEY BE RETURNED TO FAMILY MEMBERS FOR RETURN TO HOBBY LOBBY?

CLOSE CPS UNTIL EMPLOYEES CAN BE FORCED TO TELL THE TRUTH! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN STOP INTERMINGLING CASE RECORDS! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN STOP RECORDING 'FICTITIOUS' WITNESSES IN THEIR FILES! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN HELP FAMILIES IN NEED!

REPEAL THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997. IT FLOODS MONETARY REWARDS AND BONUSES INTO DHS TO REWARD THEM FOR THEIR EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION of little children!

ESTABLISH CHILD CARE UNDER THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM! MOST JUVENILE JUDGES CARE ABOUT CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. JUVENILE JUDGES USUALLY WANT WHAT IS BEST FOR CHILDREN ... AND THAT IS NORMALLY WITH FAMILY MEMBERS. VERY FEW CPS WORKERS CARE ABOUT CHILDREN ... IT'S MONEY TO THEM. CHILDREN MEANS MORE MONEY FLOWING INTO CPS UNDER THE PRESENT SYSTEM!

IT'S ALSO STRANGE THAT THE OKDHS ADOPTIONS SITE WAS CLOSED AFTER A GRIEVANCE WAS FILED. TRY THE SITE YOURSELF. IT CLOSED AFTER THIS REPORTER FILED A GRIEVANCE REGARDING THE SITE. STRANGE!

AUTHOR: L - (U.S.A.)

Ann, I think there are two Yahoo groups trying to help American citizens fight CPS's emotional abuse. Numerous reports are in the Yahoo Support Groups. The "Iconocast Newspaper" in Texas placed a report in their newspaper about some of the abusive activities being promoted in Oklahoma. More newspaper reports need to be made so corrections can be established.
Perhaps some CPS abuse reporters would like to join either of the groups. These support groups need to be advertised to parents and relatives of those who are being abused and neglected by the CPS System of FORCED family indoctrination.

Committee after and committee and study group after study group have all tried to get to the bottom of the sickness in CPS. Reports are made. Payoffs are made to quiet the recommendations. The remedy is CLOSE THE DOORS UNTIL CPS CAN HELP FAMILIES INSTEAD OF DESTROY FAMILIES AND WORSE OF ALL, DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN AND THEIR HOPE OF A NORMAL CHILDHOOD.

WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO THE THREE GRIEVANCES MAILED TO OKDHS UNDER CERTIFIED MAIL WITH RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED? YOU FIGURE IT OUT!

WHERE ARE THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE THAT THE PARENT IS REPORTEDLY SMOKING? WHY DOESN'T THE PARENT KNOW ABOUT THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE? ANOTHER CASE INTERMINGLED!

WHO ARE THE THREE SIBLINGS REPORTEDLY IN THE FAMILY THAT ABSOLUTELY NO FAMILY MEMBER KNOWS ABOUT? WHY CAN'T DHS OR THEIR CONTRACTOR NAME THOSE SIBLINGS SO THE FAMILY CAN INCLUDE THEM IN FAMILY ACTIVITIES? OBVIOUSLY MORE LIES AND FABRICATIONS!

HOW DID THE CHILDREN'S BONES GET BROKEN?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THE FAMILY BROUGHT TO OKDHS?

WHY DID THE CPS CASEWORKER ORDER THE RELATIVE TO NOT FOLLOW THE JUDGE'S ORDERS UNTIL AFTER SHE HAD SPOKEN TO THE FOSTER PARENTS. WHY DID THE FOSTER PARENTS "FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE" ABIDING WITH THE JUDGE'S ORDERS? OBVIOUSLY, THEY WERE THREATENED VERY HEAVILY OR THE CPS CASEWORKER LIED TO THE RELATIVE.

ARE THE CHILDREN ON "MIND ALTERING DRUGS" AS IS THE NORMAL PRACTICE FOR CHILDREN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED BY CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES?

HOW MUCH WAS THE MEDICAL CONTRACTOR PAID TO PRESCRIBE MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO THE ABUSED CHILD(CHILDREN)?

A relative told one of the parents that if a spouse is ill, the other parent should help the ill parent seek professional medical help. For instance, if a parent has a disease of the liver and does not want to go to a doctor, the other parent should do all possible to get medical help for the ill spouse. DHS SAYS "NO!" "If a parent is ill, move out of the house, take the children with you and get a divorce!"

YES, INDEED! CPS FAILED THIS FAMILY! The Family Assessment Worker failed this family! The Intake Worker severely abused and neglected both children and lied, under oath, about notes she wrote in the DHS report. The intake worker KNEW that one child sometimes had reactions from the prescribed medication. She called the parent a liar and made inhumane accusations against the parent. THEN, she 'resigned' her position to go to work for a DHS contractor.

WONDER HOW SHE GOT THE JOB WITH THE DHS CONTRACTOR SO FAST? WONDER WHY SHE LEFT SO SUDDENLY? WONDER WHY HER PERSONNEL FILE CAN'T BE ANNOTATED THAT SHE ALLOWED THESE CHILDREN TO BE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED BY SHELTER EMPLOYEES. WONDER WHY SHE HAD TO CALL A MAN IN TO HELP HOLD THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED KINDERGARTEN CHILD DOWN "SO SHE WOULDN'T INJURE HERSELF" AS SHE TRIED TO ANSWER THE INTAKE WORKER'S QUESTIONS? WONDER HOW THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED CHILD SPOKE SO FLUENTLY TO THE INTAKE WORKER THAT SHE UNDERSTOOD EVERY WORD SHE SPOKE BUT THEN HAD TO CALL THE MAN IN TO HOLD HER DOWN?

JUST WONDERING HOW ALL THESE THINGS CAN HAPPEN AND BE PROMOTED BY THE "THE CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES" DIVISION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES IN OKLAHOMA.

The same intake worker boldly stated to the parents, "A father should NEVER touch his young child!" "A father should NEVER help his young child with his/her bath!" "A father should NEVER help put clean clothing on a young 4-5 year old child!" "A father should NEVER help or teach his young child to dust bath powder on his/her body AFTER a bath or shower! The intake worker stated, "It is wrong!" "IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!" She even told the young child that the father did something BAD when he helped the children!

It is very UNACCEPTABLE to this reporter for CPS employees to lie and refuse to help parents learn the "CPS acceptable" way of life. Who is to say that the DHS/CPS way of life is ACCEPTABLE? CPSs EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION AND ABUSE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO THIS REPORTER!

Lying to juvenile judges, combining case files, purposefully emotionally injuring children, reporting fictitiuos witnesses, and gathering funds to reward employees and contractors is TOTALLY "unacceptable" behavior for those who are supposed to be "Child Protection Service" workers. LIES ARE TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE ... that is ... except for CPS caseworkers! WHY?

Look at the reports! LIE AFTER LIE! INTERMINGLING OF FILES! WHY do CPS workers combine or intermingle files? Why do they lie to judges? Why do they tell the foster parents TOTAL LIES? Why doesn't DHS want to help Christian parents?

ONE REASON CPS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP A PARENT BEGGING FOR HELP IS SO THEY CAN HAVE TIME TO FABRICATE MORE LIES SO THEY CAN GATHER THE FUNDS FROM THE "ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997" so they can receive the rewards and bonuses provided through that ACT.

ANOTHER REASON TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE THEIR JOB OF EMOTIONALLY INJURING LITTLE CHILDREN, ABUSING LITTLE CHILDREN AND DESTROYING THE FAMILY. THEN CPS ADOPTS THE CHILDREN TO FOSTER PARENTS ... ALL FOR REWARDS FROM THE ASFA!

EVERY CHILD THAT CPS TAKES INTO CUSTODY IS IMMEDIATELY CONSIDERED TO BE EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED AND PLACED ON MEDICARE SO BENEFITS CAN BE FED DOWN TO DHS TO REWARD THEM. EVEN THEIR REPORTERS STATE THAT EVERY CHILD IS EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED ONCE THEY'RE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. THOSE LITTLE CHILDREN ARE SCARED TO DEATH! THAT'S THE WAY CPS WANTS TO HANDLE THEIR JOB! THEN, ONCE THEY'RE TOTALLY EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED, THEY'RE PLACED ON MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO FOR THE BENEFIT OF DHS AND THE ASFA PROVISIONS.

A FURTHER REASON FOR A DHS CASEWORKER TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE JOBS FOR THEM AND THEIR BILLIONS OF CONTACTORS. IF A CONTRACTOR (DOCTOR, COUNSELOR OR ANY PROFESSIONAL ... EVEN FOSTER PARENTS) FAILS TO TOTALLY AGREE WITH DHS AND THEIR ABUSIVE AND EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTIVE SYSTEM, ANOTHER CONTRACTOR WILL BE FOUND WHO WILL ASSURE CPS THAT THEY WILL ABIDE BY DHS/CPS RECOMMENDATIONS.

FOSTER PARENTS 'THINK' THEY ARE HELPING CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS ARE ACTUALLY HELPING DHS ABUSE LITTLE CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS NEED TO REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING THEY SAY OR DO FOR THE CHILDREN IS USED TO HELP CPS DESTROY THE CHILDREN. CPS USES (AND FABRICATES) INFORMATION FROM FOSTER PARENTS TO BRING FURTHER ACCUSATIONS AGAINST RELATIVES.

Children don't understand why they can't go back home and be with their friends and relatives. They don't understand why they can't go to their regular church activities. They are FORCED to believe that their parent(s) are BAD people and told that they never want to see them again. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? IT'S TOTALLY TRUE! One child testified that was what he was told! THAT'S Child Protection Services! That's why children taken into custody of CPS are put through EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY to help them survive the abusive CPS child destruction system.

CPS DOES NOT, IN ANY WAY, WANT TO HELP ANY FAMILY! DHS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP CHILDREN! CPS WANTS TO DESTROY MARRIAGES! LOOK THE CASE OVER! VIRTUALLY EVERY CHILD TAKEN INTO CUSTODY IS FORCED TO GET A DIVORCE SO THEY CAN 'TRY' TO PLACE THE CHILDREN WITH ONE OF THE PARENTS. (?)LAWS ARE PASSED BY THE OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE AND THEN DHS WRITES "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO STAFF IN APPLYING THIS LAW" FOR ALL LAWS. Those 'special instructions to STAFF' essentially negate the law.

CPS admits that EVERY child they take into custody IS emotionally destroyed! When the children are returned to the parents, the children are TOTALLY SCARED TO DEATH that they'll be yanked away from their parents again. They cannot develop normally having the continued emotional fear in their life! BUT, that's what CPS forces on the children they take into custody!

The child is AFRAID that if they say anything to anybody about their family or their relatives or friends, THEY will be the ones who will be taken into custody and further emotionally destroyed. Teachers often ask the children questions about family life. Children are afraid to say anything about their family. Of course, some teachers gain their trust and the children tell about family. Then, that teacher, who has never even met the parents, takes action to have the children removed from the home. One teacher in this case had known the children less than TWO MONTHS when she reported what the child said to her after the sexual assault on the school bus. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

TEACHERS ARE REQUIRED TO REPORT ANYTHING THAT A CHILD SAYS THAT COULD IN ANY WAY INDICATE THE CHILD IS BEING 'ABUSED' (spanked) or 'NEGLECTED' (no swimming pool privilege) as a means of discipline EVEN IF THEY'VE ONLY KNOWN THE CHILD A SHORT TIME.

A check of the records will find that DHS has contractors who 'specialize' in "GRIEF THERAPY" and "EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY." Those contractors are paid through the awards and bonuses of the ASFA and other funds made available to DHS to promote their continued destructive activities.

Furthermore, and of great concern, when a juvenile judge orders an action to take place, DHS caseworkers SHOULD BE FORCED TO COMPLY WITH THOSE ORDERS! CPS EMPLOYEES DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE JUDGE'S ORDERS UNLESS IT IN THE INTEREST OF CHS AND THEIR CHILD DESTRUCTION PLANS.

DHS IS ABOVE THE LAW! THEY DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLY WITH THE RULING OF ANY JUDGE. This statement can be proven again and again by most people involved in DHS custody cases. One DHS worker was ordered, by the judge, to provide a parent with photographs of her children ... as an agreement for relinquishment of parenthood. DHS WILL NOT FOLLOW THOSE ORDERS. THEY DON'T HAVE TO FOLLOW THE JUDGES ORDERS! THEY ARE ABOVE THE JUDGE! Sorry, Juvenile Judges, you need to know that is FACT! OKDHDS employees do not obey YOUR orders! THEY DON'T HAVE TO OBEY YOUR ORDERS!

DHS has far too much power over family life in America! DHS has far too much funds available to their desired disposal! Our federal government (Medicare and Social Security) needs to stop flooding DHS with money not only through their budget but also through the ASFA and other monetary benefits to DHS.

When this reporter sent three grievances to OKDHS regarding the abuse and neglect of these children, DHS says, "the Certified Letter With Return Receipt Requested never reached them." The post office says the big envelope "may have gotten lodged in a mail bag and may NEVER be found." You figure it out! OKDHS KNOWS just what to do! If a grievance is not "MOOT" then it is not received!

In addition, when grievances ARE filed, retaliation is overwhelming on the person filing the grievance! DHS should NOT be allowed to retaliate against children or family members when a grievance is filed! RETALIATION IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!

This reporter submitted three previous grievances about abuse and neglect by the Intake Worker and juvenile shelter medication staff. A copy of all six grievances are recorded in the court records. ONE of the grievances was investigated BUT the reporter is NEVER to know what the investigation revealed.

The Oklahoma governor's office is aware of this case. The Executive Field Director told family members that all clothing, educational materials and insurance policies should be brought to DHS so THEY CAN DISPOSE OF THEM AS THEY SEE FIT!

FAMILY MEMBERS would be happy to forward educational materials to DHS IF they were assured that the educational materials would be used by the children or RETURNED to the family. Educational materials left earlier with CPS caseworkers has reportedly been 'lost, stolen or misplaced' and cannot be given to the children or returned to family members." WHY? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THE FAMILY BROUGHT TO THE CPS WORKER? Some of the educational materials were purchased at Hobby Lobby, which is renowned to be a Christian retail store. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS DELIVERED TO THE CPS PERMANENT PLACEMENT WORKER? WHY CAN'T THEY BE RETURNED TO FAMILY MEMBERS FOR RETURN TO HOBBY LOBBY?

CLOSE CPS UNTIL EMPLOYEES CAN BE FORCED TO TELL THE TRUTH! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN STOP INTERMINGLING CASE RECORDS! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN STOP RECORDING 'FICTITIOUS' WITNESSES IN THEIR FILES! CLOSE CPS UNTIL THEY CAN HELP FAMILIES IN NEED!

REPEAL THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997. IT FLOODS MONETARY REWARDS AND BONUSES INTO DHS TO REWARD THEM FOR THEIR EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION of little children!

ESTABLISH CHILD CARE UNDER THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM! MOST JUVENILE JUDGES CARE ABOUT CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. JUVENILE JUDGES USUALLY WANT WHAT IS BEST FOR CHILDREN ... AND THAT IS NORMALLY WITH FAMILY MEMBERS. VERY FEW CPS WORKERS CARE ABOUT CHILDREN ... IT'S MONEY TO THEM. CHILDREN MEANS MORE MONEY FLOWING INTO CPS UNDER THE PRESENT SYSTEM!

IT'S ALSO STRANGE THAT THE OKDHS ADOPTIONS SITE WAS CLOSED AFTER A GRIEVANCE WAS FILED. TRY THE SITE YOURSELF. IT CLOSED AFTER THIS REPORTER FILED A GRIEVANCE REGARDING THE SITE. STRANGE!

#95 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Please Relay Name of CPS Yahoo Reform Groups

AUTHOR: L - (U.S.A.)

Ann, I think there are two Yahoo groups trying to help American citizens fight CPS's emotional abuse. Numerous reports are in the Yahoo Support Groups. The "Iconocast Newspaper" in Texas placed a report in their newspaper about some of the abusive activities being promoted in Oklahoma. More newspaper reports need to be made so corrections can be established.
Perhaps some CPS abuse reporters would like to join either of the groups. These support groups need to be advertised to parents and relatives of those who are being abused and neglected by the CPS System of FORCED family indoctrination.

CPS consists of employees who likely have little children. Perhaps their children need to be made a part of the ASFA reward and bonus benefits so they can be further rewarded while they TRY to fight the lies of their own co-workers. The CPS system is SICK and nobody cares to try to find the cause of their sickness. Committee after and committee and study group after study group have all tried to get to the bottom of the sickness in CPS. Reports are made. Payoffs are made to quiet the recommendations. The remedy is CLOSE THE DOORS UNTIL CPS CAN HELP FAMILIES INSTEAD OF DESTROY FAMILIES AND WORSE OF ALL, DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN AND THEIR HOPE OF A NORMAL CHILDHOOD.

What DHS employee would want their child taken into custody by liars? It wouldn't take many children of DHS employees taken into custody for them to learn how abusive the system is to little children and parents!

These children have been Adopted to the Foster Parents and the ADOPTION FINALIZED BY THE JUVENILE JUDGE WHO WAS ORDERED BY THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA TO STEP DOWN FROM THE CASE. THE JUDGE WAS ORDERED OFF THE CASE BECAUSE SHE VISITED WITH THE JURORS BEFORE THEY HAD HEARD ALL THE CASE AND BECAUSE SHE VISITED WITH WITNESSES ABOUT THE CASE BEFORE THEY HAD TESTIFIED DURING THE TRIAL. HOW CAN A JUDGE WHO WAS ORDERED OFF THE CASE CANCEL A SCHEDULED HEARING BY THE JUDGE HEARING THE CASE AND IN IN THE PLACE OF THE SCHEDULED HEARING, FINALIZE THE ADOPTION?

DHS CASEWORKERS KNOW HOW TO DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN! DHS CASEWORKERS AND CONTRACTORS KNOW HOW TO DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN! THEY'RE PROFESSIONALS AT CHILD DESTRUCTION INCLUDING (1)MENTAL ABUSE, (2)PHYSICAL ABUSE AND (3)EMOTIONAL ABUSE!

Legislators TRY to devise laws to help families. One such law was the Oklahoma Bullying Law. That law will NOT be enforced by any school official. That law requires that schools establish a parent group OR community action committee to relate to student bodies to help children learn to stop bullying other students.

EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO RECEIVE AN EQUAL EDUCATION WITHOUT BULLYING. Bullying comes from the home. Parents say, "Well, my child needs some way to vent their frustrations. Let them bully younger or less aggressive students. The bullying helps MY child!"

BULLYING SHOULD BE STOPPED! If the Oklahoma Bullying Law was enforced, more children could receive a better and safer education. Bullying demeans a child! Oklahoma Legislators need to KNOW that the Oklahoma Bullying Law is NOT being used in many, if any, Oklahoma schools. READ "THE OKLAHOMA BULLYING LAW" for yourself. Inquire as to who applies the Bullying Law in your local school.

The incident on the schoolbus was a case of bullying using sexual assault. The bullies are rewarded ... because they are members of the football team or some other school sponsored activity. "Let them go, they're are an important part of the football team. It's OK for them to assault younger students."

School officials even make the child feel he/she is responsible for the bullying. Then, if the child counters the bullying or runs from it, THEY are the ones at fault. The bullied student is the one who suffers! The local school rewards the bullies and DHS continues the emotional destruction of the child. It's their job!

CPS employees need to be held totally accountable for the statements they make in their secret files AND the statements they make to the judges. Juvenile Judges tend to believe EVERY DHS report. ONE big mistake that all juvenile judges need to come to grips with!

YOU CANNOT BELIEVE THE CPS CASEWORKER! YOU CANNOT TRUST THE CPS CASEWORKER TO CARRY OUT THE JUDGE'S ORDERS .... EVER!

This Juvenile Judge stated to the DHS worker, "It looks like CPS has totally failed this family!" Later, the same judge tried his best to reunify the family. Lies were fabricated. Threats were made to the family. Lies were told to the children and foster family. Threats were made to the foster family.

In this case, the home study worker told the family member seeking custody that "the children's bones have been broken and DHS says YOU know all about how their bones were broken. The family member had NO knowledge of bones being broken ... obviously another case intermingled with this case.

Finally, the family member asked the home study worker if she had a date when the bones were reportedly broken. She looked into the DHS report and found that the bones were broken some time between February 2002 and June 2002. DHS took the children into custody AS A RESULT OF THEM BEING SEXUALLY ASSAULTED AND FRIGHTENED ON THEIR SCHOOL BUS on October 2, 2001. The sexual assault occurred on the last Friday in September 2001. NOW, WHO BROKE THEIR BONES AND WHY? HOW COULD THE RELATIVE POSSIBLY KNOW HOW THE BONES WERE BROKEN WHEN THEY WERE IN FOSTER CARE AT THE TIME IT OCCURRED?

The family member, who was protecting the children from a parent who needed medical help, learned about the sexual assault AND delivered a letter to the principal of the local school ASKING THAT THE PRINCIPAL HELP CHILDREN BE SAFE FROM SEXUAL ASSAULTS ON SCHOOL PROPERTY. One of the children was in Kindergarten. The sexual assaulters (BULLIES) have been rewarded by being allowed to continue attending the local school. The bus driver just kept driving KNOWING the assault was going on within five feet of her seat. High School girls came to the rescue of the Kindergarten child. The other child was able to go to the back of the bus to get away from the assaulting (BULLYING) children.

The letter to the school principal brought about excessive questioning and blame on one child. Those questioning the child, accused the child of being the sole cause for the assault. How could a Kindergarten child and a sibling two years older be the cause of a sexual assault on a school bus?

Religious vows were that the couple stay together, "in sickness and in health 'til death do us part." This family did their best to follow Biblical principles. DHS promotes anti-Biblical activities ... lying, fictitious witnesses, etc.

WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO THE THREE GRIEVANCES MAILED TO OKDHS UNDER CERTIFIED MAIL WITH RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED? YOU FIGURE IT OUT!

WHERE ARE THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE THAT THE PARENT IS REPORTEDLY SMOKING? WHY DOESN'T THE PARENT KNOW ABOUT THE CIGARETTES IN A HOSE IN A PIPE? ANOTHER CASE INTERMINGLED!

WHO ARE THE THREE SIBLINGS REPORTEDLY IN THE FAMILY THAT ABSOLUTELY NO FAMILY MEMBER KNOWS ABOUT? WHY CAN'T DHS OR THEIR CONTRACTOR NAME THOSE SIBLINGS SO THE FAMILY CAN INCLUDE THEM IN FAMILY ACTIVITIES? OBVIOUSLY MORE LIES AND FABRICATIONS!

HOW DID THE CHILDREN'S BONES GET BROKEN?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THE FAMILY BROUGHT TO OKDHS?

WHY DID THE CPS CASEWORKER ORDER THE RELATIVE TO NOT FOLLOW THE JUDGE'S ORDERS UNTIL AFTER SHE HAD SPOKEN TO THE FOSTER PARENTS. WHY DID THE FOSTER PARENTS "FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE" ABIDING WITH THE JUDGE'S ORDERS? OBVIOUSLY, THEY WERE THREATENED VERY HEAVILY OR THE CPS CASEWORKER LIED TO THE RELATIVE.

ARE THE CHILDREN ON "MIND ALTERING DRUGS" AS IS THE NORMAL PRACTICE FOR CHILDREN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED BY CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES?

HOW MUCH WAS THE MEDICAL CONTRACTOR PAID TO PRESCRIBE MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO THE ABUSED CHILD(CHILDREN)?

A relative told one of the parents that if a spouse is ill, the other parent should help the ill parent seek professional medical help. For instance, if a parent has a disease of the liver and does not want to go to a doctor, the other parent should do all possible to get medical help for the ill spouse. DHS SAYS "NO!" "If a parent is ill, move out of the house, take the children with you and get a divorce!"

YES, INDEED! CPS FAILED THIS FAMILY! The Family Assessment Worker failed this family! The Intake Worker severely abused and neglected both children and lied, under oath, about notes she wrote in the DHS report. The intake worker KNEW that one child sometimes had reactions from the prescribed medication. She called the parent a liar and made inhumane accusations against the parent. THEN, she 'resigned' her position to go to work for a DHS contractor.

WONDER HOW SHE GOT THE JOB WITH THE DHS CONTRACTOR SO FAST? WONDER WHY SHE LEFT SO SUDDENLY? WONDER WHY HER PERSONNEL FILE CAN'T BE ANNOTATED THAT SHE ALLOWED THESE CHILDREN TO BE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED BY SHELTER EMPLOYEES. WONDER WHY SHE HAD TO CALL A MAN IN TO HELP HOLD THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED KINDERGARTEN CHILD DOWN "SO SHE WOULDN'T INJURE HERSELF" AS SHE TRIED TO ANSWER THE INTAKE WORKER'S QUESTIONS? WONDER HOW THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED CHILD SPOKE SO FLUENTLY TO THE INTAKE WORKER THAT SHE UNDERSTOOD EVERY WORD SHE SPOKE BUT THEN HAD TO CALL THE MAN IN TO HOLD HER DOWN?

JUST WONDERING HOW ALL THESE THINGS CAN HAPPEN AND BE PROMOTED BY THE "THE CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES" DIVISION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES IN OKLAHOMA.

The same intake worker boldly stated to the parents, "A father should NEVER touch his young child!" "A father should NEVER help his young child with his/her bath!" "A father should NEVER help put clean clothing on a young 4-5 year old child!" "A father should NEVER help or teach his young child to dust bath powder on his/her body AFTER a bath or shower! The intake worker stated, "It is wrong!" "IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!" She even told the young child that the father did something BAD when he helped the children!

If one parent is too ill to properly care for a child, the other parent, according to CPS, should NOT help care for the children. The other parent should, according to instructions from the CPS caseworker, "move out of the house, take the children and get a divorce!"

The recommendation is even written in the OK KIDS files! The parent DID move out of the house, DID take the children and DID get a divorce, against Biblical teachings. CPS should have been happy that the parent followed her recommendations. The children were doing much better once they were moved away from the ill parent BUT ... their sexual assault on the school bus brough failure to the plan.

Why would one CPS worker tell the parent to move out of the home, take the children and get a divorce but then ANOTHER CPS worker hold a Family Assessment Meeting and recommend that all parenting rights be removed from BOTH parents? It's evident! MONEY! MORE CASES! MORE CONTRACTORS! MORE EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED CHILDREN!

DHS has a standard statement they use for EVERYTHING that a parent says/does. They say, "It is unacceptable!" They NEVER tell the parent what IS acceptable! When the parent enrolls in Parenting Classes, he/she is told by CPS caseworkers not to return to class. Why would the caseworker STATE in her records that she mailed a letter to the family recommending "Parenting Assistance Classes" and "Anger Management" and then when the parent 'learned' about the 'letter', enrolls in the class and three weeks later ordered to stop attending the class? YOU FIGURE IT! If the parent got the help he/she needed from those 'recommended' classes, CPS would not get the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA!

It is very UNACCEPTABLE to this reporter for CPS employees to lie and refuse to help parents learn the "CPS acceptable" way of life. Who is to say that the DHS/CPS way of life is ACCEPTABLE? CPSs EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION AND ABUSE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO THIS REPORTER!

Lying to juvenile judges, combining case files, purposefully emotionally injuring children, reporting fictitiuos witnesses, and gathering funds to reward employees and contractors is TOTALLY "unacceptable" behavior for those who are supposed to be "Child Protection Service" workers. LIES ARE TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE ... that is ... except for CPS caseworkers! WHY?

Look at the reports! LIE AFTER LIE! INTERMINGLING OF FILES! WHY do CPS workers combine or intermingle files? Why do they lie to judges? Why do they tell the foster parents TOTAL LIES? Why doesn't DHS want to help Christian parents?

ONE REASON CPS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP A PARENT BEGGING FOR HELP IS SO THEY CAN HAVE TIME TO FABRICATE MORE LIES SO THEY CAN GATHER THE FUNDS FROM THE "ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997" so they can receive the rewards and bonuses provided through that ACT.

ANOTHER REASON TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE THEIR JOB OF EMOTIONALLY INJURING LITTLE CHILDREN, ABUSING LITTLE CHILDREN AND DESTROYING THE FAMILY. THEN CPS ADOPTS THE CHILDREN TO FOSTER PARENTS ... ALL FOR REWARDS FROM THE ASFA!

EVERY CHILD THAT CPS TAKES INTO CUSTODY IS IMMEDIATELY CONSIDERED TO BE EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED AND PLACED ON MEDICARE SO BENEFITS CAN BE FED DOWN TO DHS TO REWARD THEM. EVEN THEIR REPORTERS STATE THAT EVERY CHILD IS EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED ONCE THEY'RE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. THOSE LITTLE CHILDREN ARE SCARED TO DEATH! THAT'S THE WAY CPS WANTS TO HANDLE THEIR JOB! THEN, ONCE THEY'RE TOTALLY EMOTIONALLY DESTROYED, THEY'RE PLACED ON MIND ALTERING DRUGS TO FOR THE BENEFIT OF DHS AND THE ASFA PROVISIONS.

A FURTHER REASON FOR A DHS CASEWORKER TO LIE ABOUT A CASE IS TO CONTINUE JOBS FOR THEM AND THEIR BILLIONS OF CONTACTORS. IF A CONTRACTOR (DOCTOR, COUNSELOR OR ANY PROFESSIONAL ... EVEN FOSTER PARENTS) FAILS TO TOTALLY AGREE WITH DHS AND THEIR ABUSIVE AND EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTIVE SYSTEM, ANOTHER CONTRACTOR WILL BE FOUND WHO WILL ASSURE CPS THAT THEY WILL ABIDE BY DHS/CPS RECOMMENDATIONS.

FOSTER PARENTS 'THINK' THEY ARE HELPING CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS ARE ACTUALLY HELPING DHS ABUSE LITTLE CHILDREN! FOSTER PARENTS NEED TO REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING THEY SAY OR DO FOR THE CHILDREN IS USED TO HELP CPS DESTROY THE CHILDREN. CPS USES (AND FABRICATES) INFORMATION FROM FOSTER PARENTS TO BRING FURTHER ACCUSATIONS AGAINST RELATIVES.

Children don't understand why they can't go back home and be with their friends and relatives. They don't understand why they can't go to their regular church activities. They are FORCED to believe that their parent(s) are BAD people and told that they never want to see them again. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? IT'S TOTALLY TRUE! One child testified that was what he was told! THAT'S Child Protection Services! That's why children taken into custody of CPS are put through EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY to help them survive the abusive CPS child destruction system.

CPS DOES NOT, IN ANY WAY, WANT TO HELP ANY FAMILY! DHS DOES NOT WANT TO HELP CHILDREN! CPS WANTS TO DESTROY MARRIAGES! LOOK THE CASE OVER! VIRTUALLY EVERY CHILD TAKEN INTO CUSTODY IS FORCED TO GET A DIVORCE SO THEY CAN 'TRY' TO PLACE THE CHILDREN WITH ONE OF THE PARENTS. (?)LAWS ARE PASSED BY THE OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE AND THEN DHS WRITES "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO STAFF IN APPLYING THIS LAW" FOR ALL LAWS. Those 'special instructions to STAFF' essentially negate the law.

CPS admits that EVERY child they take into custody IS emotionally destroyed! When the children are returned to the parents, the children are TOTALLY SCARED TO DEATH that they'll be yanked away from their parents again. They cannot develop normally having the continued emotional fear in their life! BUT, that's what CPS forces on the children they take into custody!

Washington CPS

AUTHOR: Tracy - (U.S.A.)

One of the reasons we know so much about CPS in our state is because we currently have an open case and also have a old closed case. My sister in Oregon has one as well. Both of us have tremendous stories to tell of the lies and deceit that occur there.
We just recently got our case file, which was supposed to take 21 days to obtain and took 78 days. It is full of discrepancies, most of which are totally obvious. Our children were taken 8/30/00 and without ever going to court held till 11/25/00. We did everything they asked us to do and then some. The kids were molested and abused in the first foster home and it took us a month to get them moved. They were also told that we were no longer Mom and Dad. The new foster parents were Mom and Dad from then on. After struggling with this, we ended up calling the Governor and the Mayor, and received our kids back. The file says that the kids were taken 3/19/02 the case was opened 1/11/02 and we got our kids back 11/22/00. Does that seem right????
Also, they state in the file that my mother paid the bills and I lived off welfare. I was on food stamps and medical, but I worked as a caregiver to my mother who is now deceased because of her chronicle terminal kidney failure which she had for 14 years, and was on dialysis at the time of the report. Does that seem right????
That's just 2 of the discrepancies it is full of. There are also several pages missing as well as several pages partially or entirely blacked out.
Our new case that is open is because our daughter jumped out her window 2 1/2 stories up and I immediately took her to the hospital. I have been called a paranoid mother and over protective because I wanted to know what was wrong with her and everything they were saying and doing to and about my child. I think that is my right as a parent. We had been calling and asking for help. Our children have had a large variety of issues ever since the first case. Our daughter lies so often you never know what to believe and is currently going to counseling for that as well as all her other issues, most of which the counselors believe are caused by CPS. Our oldest, 3 at the time of the first case, had a gun pulled on him when he was taken from us by the police. He has lots of issue with it as well as ADHD, oppositional deviancy disorder, childhood depression, and conduct disorder, which the counselors have told us most of which came from, or dramatically increased from CPS. Both the children involved in the first case are very damaged as a result. We have been told several time by the doctors and teachers and counselors and even the family preservation specialist affiliated with CPS to sue them for the irreparable damage they caused. We are planning to do just that once we get all the paperwork and this case is over...the end of this week...if they let us(yeah right, since they know we are planning to sue).
Also, of more current and published cases, there is the story of the family here who, in June, the mother took her 2 little girls up to the woods and shot them, after which she turned herself in claiming mental health issues. Now I'm not condoning killing kids by any means for any reason, however, upon researching the case I have discovered that she had called CPS herself asking for help saying that she was loosing it and she needed help or she would kill her kids. Did they jump in and help? Absolutely NOT! They said there was no need for them to intervene. What does that mean????
In my experience, as well as talking to hundreds of other families from the area with and without case and researching cases myself, CPS is more likely to take children who don't need to be taken and leave the one's that do.
You are right L, they don't want to help.
If all the parents with cases like these come together and unite, along with those who know the stories and want to see improvements in the system, not only would the system work better, but less children would be subjected to these most horrible acts of abuse ever! Any reporters or legislature, or families that would like to contact me for more information or to help stop CPS abuse, feel free to contact me anytime! I would love to help with this action, I just don't know where to start other than what I have already done. This isn't just by state, this is everywhere!

Response to Tracy from Van Cover, WA ..protecting children from CPS abuse and neglect

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Tracy, I agree with you completely regarding protecting children from CPS abuse and neglect. It is not in the best interest of ANY child to rip them from familiar faces. I am aware that some parents NEED help to learn to be better
parents. Families should NOT BE DESTROYED for the monetary and organizational benefit of DHS and their contractors!

In this case, one parent begged for parenting classes! The parent talked personally to a CHS caseworker. The caseworker told the parent there was nothing that could be done to help the family except for the concerned parent to move from the home and take the children AND seek a divorce.

Having worked for DHS previously, this reporter KNEW there should be classes available to help the parent who was willing to seek help and knew that the only way to get into some of the classes was through approval of DHS case workers. When this reporter learned that the caseworker refused to assist the parent, a call was placed to that same worker who told this reporter that there was NOTHING available to help the parent who requested help.

This reporter then described to the DHS caseworker the help that the parents needed. The caseworker told this reporter the same thing that there was nothing available. The worker DID finally suggest that the Oklahoma County Mental Health Services be called to see what assistance they could give the family. A call was immediately placed to that organization and the reporter, after explaining the needs, was told "there is NOTHING we can to do help these parents unless the parent is severely injuring him/herself or someone else. The parent had to give up on his request for help.

That parent was finally able to get some help through the health care insurance. However, when the children were sexually assaulted on the schoolbus, that help stopped!

SIX MONTHS later, the parent begging for help, learned through the lawyer that a letter was sent to the home telling about PAC and Anger Management. THAT LETTER NEVER LEFT THE DESK OF THE DHS WORKER! Moreover, the very minimal the DHS caseworker COULD HAVE DONE was to call the parent begging for help and tell the parent about the letter. That was never done. WHY?

Upon learning about the 'letter' being SUPPOSEDLY mailed to the parents, one parent immediately enrolled in the PAC class and attended 3-4 sessions before an order was issued by DHS that the parent NOT be permitted to attend any further PAC workshops. WHY? MORE LIES AND FALSE ACCUSATIONS BY DHS WORKERS!

The DHS worker KNEW that if the parent got the help needed (THAT WAS ORIGINALLY REQUESTED), the bonuses and awards from ASFA would not be fed into DHS. DHS did NOT want that to happen!

The ONLY reason for a DHS employee to lie to a judge about a parent or child is so the monies will continue to flow into DHS so the children can be retained in custody 12-15 months and the emotional destruction continued.

Rmotional destruction brings in more DHS contractors and more bonuses to pay those contractors for their services. DHS is NOT in the business of helping families! They are in the business of destroying families and worse of all, emotionally destroying little innocent children.

Why would the intake worker refuse to tell caregivers about the reactions to the medication so they could check the accuracy of the report? The Intake Worker WANTED the children to be emotionally injured and physically abused and neglected. It's their job!

Why would the DHS Family Assessment caseworker tell the judge that all parenting rights should be removed from both parents? Why couldn't the worker recommend parenting classes and anger management classes? Why wouldn't the worker recommend medical evaluations?

Why would DHS OFFICIALS recommend that a person VERY familiar with the children go with the child for the DHS contractor's medical examination so a better health evaluation could be made? When the child was taken to the DHS contractor for the evaluation, a worker who knew NOTHING about the child or his/her background delivered the child to the DHS contractor. THAT'S NEGLECT AND ABUSE! There was NEVER an intention to help this family OR save the children from emotional destruction!

Why would the DHS caseworker tell the judge that a relative visited one of the children in the school where DHS had placed the child? LIAR!

Why would the Home Study Contractor tell the relative that DHS reported that the children's bones were broken and that the relative KNEW about the broken bones? How could the relative KNOW about the broken bones that, according the the Home Study Reporter's report given her by DHS, occurred while the children were in foster care?

Why did the Home Study Contractor leave a form for the relative to sign that was essentially a GAG ORDER requested by DHS?

What did the DHS Adoptions worker tell the foster parents to make them reportedly say they felt "uncomfortable" visiting with the relative, a clear refusal to comply with the judge's orders. Surely the DHS Adoptions worker wouldn't threaten a foster parent! Surely a DHS contractor had not prescribed MIND ALTERING DRUGS to the child to further emotionally injure the child! Surely the child was still alive and was not being further abused or neglected!

Foster parents KNOW that if they refuse to follow the DHS contractor's orders to place the child on mind altering drugs, the child will likely be moved to a place where they WILL be given the mind altering drugs prescribed by the DHS contractor.

If the child gets moved to another placement, further emotional destruction could be devised. This reporter believes that Oklahoma Laws allow a child to be moved from place to place up to seventeen times. That's so that the child can be totally and irreparably destroyed!

It still puzzles this reporter as to why the DHS contracted counselor would have a child write a letter to the parent KNOWING that the parent is not permitted to respond to the letter. The ONLY purpose for that letter was to further emotionally destroy that young child.

That same child had already been told that the parents NEVER wanted to see the child again! The child TESTIFIED that the lawyer had told the child that the parents NEVER wanted to see the child again! What reason would there be to tell a child that EXCEPT to further emotionally destroy the young child? WHY?

Poor little children! These are the children who will later, if they can come to some sort of normality in life, fight for freedom of our American way of life. These are children whose lives have been so emotionally destroyed by DHS that they can't possibly understand the full truth about why they have been damaged by this agency of our federal, state and county government. These little children will be forced to make the best of what this DESTRUCTIVE ARM OF OUR GOVERNMENT has dealt them.

The American people will PAY dearly for allowing this agency to continue emotionally destroying our little American children. The rewards and bonuses provided to DHS by the ASFA is not worth losing family continuity. Children need to KNOW the truth about WHY they are being emotionally destroyed and why DHS contractors place them on mind altering drugs.

Americans and especially state legislators need to wake up and stop this organization from destroying the future of our great country!

Sure, parents sometimes need help! Sure, children sometimes need help! But, children should NOT be emotionally destroyed by ANY agency of our government for monetary gain.

One of the best places to teach good parenting outside of loving parents, is in the classrooms of our schools. Teachers and most parents can usually be trusted to teach children the truth. Teachers and parents CARE about children whose lives have been entrusted to them! Child Protective Services cannot be trusted except to emotionally destroy little children!

This reporter hopes that legislators will take appropriate action to STOP further emotional destruction of our children. This reporter hopes that state legislators will investigate these reports so adequate laws can be developed and enforced TO PROTECT CHILDREN from destruction by DHS's Child Protection Services.

Yes, Tracy, those who have been abused by the DHS System's way of life, need to let their legislators KNOW the truth so that laws can be passed to prevent the continuance of the emotional destruction. THIS MUST STOP!

One way to reduce the damages done by DHS is to require that every person be allowed to read and respond to the reports DHS maintains in the KIDS files. Citizens need to KNOW what DHS is writing in their hidden records! Citizens should not be required to pay DHS to review their 'hidden records' about their family. DHS should be forced to make ONLY truthful statements in their reports! They need to be held fully accountable for lies they tell or write in reports.

In this one case, there are about four cases intermingled in the official record. Those four cases are (1) a Kiowa Indian Case, (2) an illegal drug user case, (3) fictitious 'family' members and (4) fictitiious witnesses. DHS caseworkers and contracting counselors should HELP the children. DHS counselors should be trained to correctly interpret information given them.

ONLY TRUTH should be recorded in the 'hidden' files of DHS! Americans need to be permitted to review, freely upon request, the 'hidden' files to assure accuracy of content. Americans should also have the right to assure that ONLY TRUTH is recorded in the 'hidden' DHS files. The LIES and intermingling of records need to be STOPPED immediately! OPEN the DHS RECORDS for review BY each individual American citizen.

Response to Tracy from Van Cover, WA ..protecting children from CPS abuse and neglect

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

Tracy, I agree with you completely regarding protecting children from CPS abuse and neglect. It is not in the best interest of ANY child to rip them from familiar faces. I am aware that some parents NEED help to learn to be better
parents. Families should NOT BE DESTROYED for the monetary and organizational benefit of DHS and their contractors!

In this case, one parent begged for parenting classes! The parent talked personally to a CHS caseworker. The caseworker told the parent there was nothing that could be done to help the family except for the concerned parent to move from the home and take the children AND seek a divorce.

Having worked for DHS previously, this reporter KNEW there should be classes available to help the parent who was willing to seek help and knew that the only way to get into some of the classes was through approval of DHS case workers. When this reporter learned that the caseworker refused to assist the parent, a call was placed to that same worker who told this reporter that there was NOTHING available to help the parent who requested help.

This reporter then described to the DHS caseworker the help that the parents needed. The caseworker told this reporter the same thing that there was nothing available. The worker DID finally suggest that the Oklahoma County Mental Health Services be called to see what assistance they could give the family. A call was immediately placed to that organization and the reporter, after explaining the needs, was told "there is NOTHING we can to do help these parents unless the parent is severely injuring him/herself or someone else. The parent had to give up on his request for help.

That parent was finally able to get some help through the health care insurance. However, when the children were sexually assaulted on the schoolbus, that help stopped!

SIX MONTHS later, the parent begging for help, learned through the lawyer that a letter was sent to the home telling about PAC and Anger Management. THAT LETTER NEVER LEFT THE DESK OF THE DHS WORKER! Moreover, the very minimal the DHS caseworker COULD HAVE DONE was to call the parent begging for help and tell the parent about the letter. That was never done. WHY?

Upon learning about the 'letter' being SUPPOSEDLY mailed to the parents, one parent immediately enrolled in the PAC class and attended 3-4 sessions before an order was issued by DHS that the parent NOT be permitted to attend any further PAC workshops. WHY? MORE LIES AND FALSE ACCUSATIONS BY DHS WORKERS!

The DHS worker KNEW that if the parent got the help needed (THAT WAS ORIGINALLY REQUESTED), the bonuses and awards from ASFA would not be fed into DHS. DHS did NOT want that to happen!

The ONLY reason for a DHS employee to lie to a judge about a parent or child is so the monies will continue to flow into DHS so the children can be retained in custody 12-15 months and the emotional destruction continued.

It is time for parents around the country to unite!

AUTHOR: Tracy - (U.S.A.)

I dont know how much money, or when, or anything about the money part actually. I do know, for a fact, that CPS is extreamly abusive, power hungry, vindictive, hypocritical, two-faced, backstabbing, and corupt, in multiple ways. It is time for parents around the country to unite in creating major child protective service reform! Yes, unfortunatly, there are bad parents out there and children do need protection in those cases.

However, CPS workers are only human, no more or no les than any parent, and I have personally seen more damage done to children by CPS. There are reporters from major newspapers and news stations who would love to print any legitimate story of CPS wrong doings. Parents have to answer to the authorities when they screw up. It's time the authorities to answer to someone when they screw up! Please contact a reporter, or any and all government officals from around the country. Let's all find a way to REALLY keep kids safe from all bad people, including CPS!

#102 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Cheryl and the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

To Cheryl of Warren, Michigan

CHERYL, IT IS EVIDENT THAT YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW THE OFFICIAL NAME OF THE ASFA! How can you say money doesn't flow down into DHS from the ASFA. YOU HAVE NOT EVEN READ THE ASFA! SEE IF YOU CAN PULL IT DOWN ON YOUR INTERNET OR GET A COPY OF IT THROUGH YOUR STATE LEGISLATURE.

The ASFA clearly states that Medicare and Social Security will provide all the necessary funds and expenses NECESSARY to take in more children and adopt them out. READ IT! It also states that bonuses will be awarded for exceeding the established goals of Adoptions! READ IT!

Sure, the intention of the ASFA was to help children find permanency with children who had been in DHS custody for 5-6 years and even into adulthood. Oklahoma is using the ASFA to take in more and more children and ADOPT them out to strangers so the rewards and bonuses can be speedily funneled down to them for their efforts earlier in childhood, even in their formative years. Oklahoma DHS rushes their cases through in the 12-15 month rule so it can speed up the reward process. Oklahoma Legislators need to change the 12-15 month ruling so that parents can have a chance to get proper treatment and prevent emotional destruction! This reporter hopes the Oklahoma Legislature will change the 12-15 month ruling TO SAVE THE CHILDREN.

This reporter could not understand WHY the Family Assessment Worker couldn't send the parents to PAC or classes to help them learn to be better parents UNTIL it was found that REWARDS and BONUSES were being given for NOT helping the parents. REWARDS AND BONUSES ARE given to DHS for taking children in and ultimately adopting them out SPEEDILY. That's done solely to bring in more money to emotionally injure the children and pay Medicare and SSI to the children and their caregivers for the remainder of their childhood. Oklahoma DHS wants the children hastily moved to Permanancy Planning and Adoption. If that were not the case, legal representatives from OKDHS would help get the 12-15 month rule changed to prevent emotional destruction of the little children.

DHS (CPS does not receive the bonuses and awards for helping the family resolve their problems so the children can be returned to the home. The rewards and bonuses are only given to DHS when they can permanently place and adopt the children outside the home. The best way for DHS employees to accomplish that is to fabricate lies and devise fictitious witnesses to anger the judge.

IF ONLY JUVENILE JUDGES REALIZED THAT DHS EMPLOYEES DEVISE LIES AND ALTER THE JUDGE'S ORDERS, CHILDREN COULD RECEIVE BETTER TREATMENT in this state. Good Juvenile Judges want what is BEST for the child. Good Juvenile Judges need to KNOW that some DHS employees ARE liars, even under oath! Better treatment, as a juvenile judge usually desires, would mean that the child would NOT be further emotionally destroyed!

It's not ethical practice for a DHS worker to be truthful to a judge OR contractor when it means a child would be salvaged if the truth were told! This reporter KNOWS for FACT that DHS workers lie and fabricate stories.

Cheryl, if the ASFA is not an influencial factor in taking children into custody and adopting them to people outside the family, then why do DHS workers tell the judged lies to anger him/her and cause more emotional hardships on the child?

Cheryl, this case had (or still has) a Kiowa Indian Case intermingled within the case file! This case also describes fictitious 'witnesses' within its pages. There's no need to intermingle 3-4 files and tell lie after lie unless it is to have as the primary goal "to take more children into custody, place them in permanent placement and ultimately adopt them out to people who KNOW nothing about the background EXCEPT the LIES DHS has told them.

The OKDHS intake worker, in this case, refused to inform the shelter caregivers about the reactions that one of these children often experienced taking the medication that was prescribed by the family physician. SHE even called the parent a liar when informed about the reaction. THEN, a month later, when the child was placed in a foster home, the child's abdominal pains caused such concern that the foster parents called the relatives to see what to do to reduce the abdominal pain. THE INTAKE WORKER KNEW THE CHILD HAD THE REACTION! THAT INTAKE WORKER SEVERELY ABUSED AND NEGLECTED THESE CHILDREN EVEN TO THE POINT THAT THE SPEECH HANDICAPPED CHILD WAS "KICKED OUT OF SCHOOL" ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS. It's in the DHS documents!

Cheryl, why would a juvenile judge order the relative to visit with the foster parents and the DHS worker immediately step outside the courtroom and ORDER the relative to refrain from following the judge's orders "UNTIL AFTER THE CASEWORKER VISITED THE FOSTER HOME?" Then, three weeks later, upon inquiry, the relative was told "The foster parents 'feel very uncomfortable' visiting with you?" Ummmmm! Wonder why? Were the foster parents threatened? Very likely!

WHY DOES A DHS CASEWORKER'S ORDER TO THE RELATIVE HAVE MORE PRECIDENCE THAN THE JUDGE'S ORDER? IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY! IT'S ALL ABOUT KEEPING KIDS IN CUSTODY! IT'S ALL ABOUT ADOPTING CHILDREN TO STRANGERS! IT'S ALL ABOUT PERMANENTLY EMOTIONALLY INJURING LITTLE CHILDREN IN ORDER TO RECEIVE REWARDS AND BONUSES WHICH, AS STATED PREVIOUSLY, ARE PROVIDED THROUGH THE ASFA.

Cheryl, this reporter is a former employee of DHS (RETIRED) and also a former foster parent and caregiver for two additional children besides birth children. This law was passed in 1997 ... Hillary Clinton was greatly honored for promoting the ASFA. If you READ the ASFA ... every word of it, you will find that this report is EXACTLY CORRECT. (It was observed, too, that YOU, Cheryl, do not even know the correct name of the ASFA.)

Cheryl, you will NEVER be able to find out how much money is actually being funneled into your state, or any state, through the provisions of awards and bonuses given through the ASFA. The figures are hidden deeply within the DHS budgetary requirements. You, Cheryl, as an individual employee DO NOT receive any of the money from ASFA directly. However, as stated in the ASFA, EVERY DHS employee who is in any way related to CPS Intake, Permanent Placement and Adoption as well as EVERY DHS contractor who is involved in the process is ultimately paid through the monies provided by the ASFA. THAT'S WHAT THE ADOPTIONS AND SAFE FAMILIES ACT OF 1997 STATES! READ IT! Take the time to research on my statements. You'll find they are absolutely correct. THE TRUTH NEEDS SPREAD SO LAWS CAN BE CHANGED AND THE ASFA CAN BE REPEALED!

It is not the desire of this reporter to offend YOU but asks, instead, that you READ the "Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997" so you will KNOW that the ASFA clearly states that it provides rewards and bonuses to DHS.

Now, this reporter will add that Michigan (this reporter believes) is one of the states that reportedly is NOT cooperating overwhelmingly with the provisions of the ASFA. Michigan evidently has done a good job in the past so less money is being funneled down to your state from the ASFA. According to this reporter's research, Michigan is doing a better job of really CARING for children they take into custody. That cannot be said about Oklahoma.

These two children are, according to the DHS contracted counselor, too confused to even visit with caring family members. Who confused them? Whose responsibility is it to clear up their confusion?

What purpose was it for the DHS counselor to have one of the children write a letter to one of the parents, KNOWING that the parent was not permitted to reply to the letter? The only purpose was to further injure the child so the contract would continue endlessly. Why can't DHS contracted counselors help the children?

One lawyer reported to the judge that the children had been "DESTROYED DURING THE PAST YEAR!" That statement was made 15-16 months after DHS had them in custody! Another lawyer said that "both children are having to undergo EXTENDED GRIEF THERAPY BECAUSE OF WHAT DHS HAS DONE TO THEM THROUGH LIES TO JUDGES." That statement was made at a hearing after about 18-24 months in DHS custody. Extended Grief Therapy would not be necessary if the children had been placed with family members.

Recently the children of one family was returned to the parents BUT they are ALL so frightened that they will be taken into custody again that they are all having to go through extended therapy in an attempt to overcome the horrors of being ripped away from their family again! It's WRONG to emotionally injure little children!

Cheryl, if you're a believer, read your Bible! It states "It is better for him (DHS liars and/or false accusers) that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and be cast into the sea, than he (DHS liars and/or false accusers) should offend one of these little ones." (Luke 17:2).

Also read Matthew 18:1-22 very carefully and see if you can be proud of the place you work. This reporter hopes that YOU are a truthful DHS employee who "wants what is best for the children" instead of what is best for DHS and the ASFA. Children do not NEED to be emotional destroyed for the benefit of DHS.

YOU KNOW, Cheryl, that if the contracted counselor helps the child so that he/she no longer needs his/her contracted services, the contractor is out of a job with that child AND is obeying Biblical teachings. Heaven forbid, it would NEVER work for a Bible to be seen within the walls of DHS or their CPS Agency!

In addition, Cheryl, you KNOW that if a DHS contractor opposes the recommendations or goals of their superiors (DHS Contracting Services), they will lose future contracts. Of course, they know how to establish a replacement contracting firm to continue their services under new management or new employees.

You KNOW that a DHS contractor is NOT about to oppose DHS's recommendations! The contractor would lose business! DHS is contracturally guaranteeing income for their services ... as long as they do exactly as DHS instructs or recommends!

Again, Cheryl, reports are out that your state is trying to stop some of the rewards and bonuses that the ASFA provides. Check with your legislature to see if new laws are being developed to HELP children. This reporter hopes that your legislature provides visitation rights to parents during the time the children are in custody. This reporter hopes that your legislature wants parents to learn to be better parents so they can properly care for their children AND save them from emotional destruction.

From the reports, Michigan, including Michigan DHS, loves and cares for children and tries to help parents learn to be better parents. This reporter thanks you and your state legislators and residents for saving children from the emotional destruction. If the reports are correct, you are from an example state. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

response to L- inaccurate interpretation of the ASFA

AUTHOR: Cheryl - (U.S.A.)

L, it appears that you do not how to understand the information that you have allegedly read regarding the Adoption and Strong Families Act. this act was put into place to prevent children from languishing in foster care for years, which has been a problem in the recent past. the ASFA was NOT put into place to pay more MONEY to CPS, foster care workers or foster parents. foster care, therapy, medical care, court appointed lawyers and all the other costs involved in the child welfare system are very high. where do you think the money comes from to pay for food, medical/dental care and clothing for a child in foster care?

it comes from federal and state funding. the responsibility of caring for an emotionally, mentally or physically impaired child can be very overwhelming.most people who adopt these children would not be capable of adequately caring for their special needs without some level of adoption subsidy. adoption subsidy payments come from ASFA funds. would you prefer that abused or neglected children be left with abusive parents? or maybe they could just stay in a foster home until they are 18 years old and end up thinking that nobody cared enough about them to want to be their parent.

your ridiculous claim that CPS or child welfare agencies get bonuses for taking children away from their birth parents is absolute bullcrap! i have been a cps worker for almost 15 years and if i got a "bonus" for removing children i would be able to retire tomorrow! nobody wants to do my job. it is stressful and can be heartbreaking. we get slammedd for allegedly stealing peoples children, but GOD FORBID, if a parent abuses or kills their child we get blamed for "dropping the ball" and letting it happen. we can win for losing!

#104 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Response to Cheryl - Warren, Michigan

AUTHOR: L - (U.S.A.)

Cheryl, please take the time to READ the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997.

The ASFA clearly states that DHS will receive bonuses and awards for taking in more children, exceeding previous adoptions and exceeding previous permanent placement activities. DHS employees ARE being paid throught the bonuses and rewards provided by the ASFA. It's clearly stated in the ASFA that any funds needed to carry out more and more adoptions and permanent placements will be paid for by Medicare and Social Security through provisions of the ASFA.

READ the ASFA. You'll see the information in the report is correct. Also, read the updates from each state's application of the ASFA. You'll see the report is absolutely on target. DHS IS receiving bonuses and special awards for abusing little children. Many employees and contractors are being paid bonuses through the ASFA. Those bonuses and awards are all provided through Medicare and SS. READ the ASFA.

Now, Cheryl, you'll never be able to find out how much any state Department of Human Services is being rewarded for their abusive acts. The figures are well hidden in the financial records of DHS. The bonuses are being provided to DHS Adoptions workers, contractors and foster parents. READ IT!

The ASFA report itself reveals figures about how much money it has paid out to each state in rewards and bonuses. Check it out to see how much money your state has been paid. You'll likely be very shocked!

The ASFA is robbing SS and Medicare in order to pay DHS bonuses and rewards for child abuse and neglect. That's what the ASFA is all about! It needs to be rescinded to SAVE THE CHILDREN!

Again, READ the ASFA and it's subsequent follow-up reports from each state. You'll see that the information in the report is absolutely correct. Why else would DHS workers lie to judges to get the judges to cause further injury? It's MONEY!

Oklahoma's follow-up report brought out that Oklahoma has (1) too high employee turn over rate, (2) too little time to train all the new employees and (3) has not been able to figure out how to work with the father of a child.

READ it for yourself, Cheryl.

cps does not receive bonuses for taking children

AUTHOR: Cheryl - (U.S.A.)

this is in response to L from Oklahoma, who obviously is a related to the children placed in foster care. you are right about one thing- foster care is a negative experience for everyone involved and should only take place when there is very high risk or serious harm done to children.

parents need to take care of their children and protect them from harm. the children you referred to were assaulted by older children on the bus, not their parents. there is no reason for CPS to be involved in that case unless there was abuse or neglect in the childrens home. something is missing from your story. i have been a CPS worker for years and have heard all of the insults. if CPS removes a child they are called "home wreckers and baby stealers".

if a parent or caretaker kills their child, CPS gets blamed for not taking the child out of the home-even if we never met the child or got any reports of abuse! trust me- CPS does not get "bonuses" for removing children from their parents. that "bonus" and "reward" rumor has been going around for a few years now. the money that you refer to is to help children get into safe, stable homes instead of languishing in foster care for years.

when i first started in my job i met kids who had been in foster care for 4-5 years! this is unacceptable and the federal government knew that the states needed more money to facilitate better adoption results. the bottom line is that parents and family members are ultimately responsible for their own children. if everybody who had children treated them with love and care there would be no need for CPS or foster care.

as long as parents and caretakers continue to beat, abuse, molest or starve their children there will continue to be CPS. contrary to some popular beliefs, children are most often abused in their own home- not by the "bushy haired stranger" or the pervert around the corner. if you have a family member who is mistreating their child you better step in and get custody of that child one way or another!

it is always the first choice to place children with family members unless the family member is an abuser. all children deserve to have a loving home. my last suggestion: only have as many children as you can take care of! it is not fair for someone to have 7 children by 7 different men (or women) and not have the money, education, maturity or mental stability to care for them.
