Let me begin with telling you all alittle about the CPS office here in San Antonio- Well the local news constantly has reports of the small comings of the department that is so post to protect the children. Anyways, I always thought it was just an exageration but little did I know untill it hit too close to home with my nieces.

My sister was seperating from her husband of six years and left Hidalgo county for San Antonio with her three children ages 9 months and twins at the age of 5. Shorthly there after thier arrival in San Antonio the girls began experiencing horrendous nightmares where they would scream out "No, Daddy do not eat my sister's private!" Naturally we were all disturbed by this and got in contact with the CPS office here in San Antonio to report the girls claims.

The process was slow and the girls and my sister were interviewed numerous of times. The case worker looked into a claim she made when the girls were a year old and she had strong suspecions and left him because of them and came her in 2003. Basically then as was now she was treated as a liar and a bitter scornful woman seeking to punish her husband for her own unhappines.

She was threatened that if her acuizations were found to be unsupported she could face legal punishment. Her girls were not able to verbalize what was taking place so the case was closed and she later reconsilled with her husband.Now, furthur suspicion drove her away again but the girls didn't speak out till out of the eviroment.CPS put my sister through hell not once but twice.

If only they would of taken the measures to investigate the situation without thier own mindless interogation tactics, they would of saved the girls from going through this a second time. The process has been slow and humiliating for our entire family, but we are rallying behind my sister and voicing the acuizations from my nices with more intensity.

My sisters divorce came to a hearing this month and just as we expected CPS was unprepared and we couldn't even get in contact with the case worker for guidance. To make matters worse my sister's husband to the stand under oath and stated that the CPS officer that contacted him notified him that my sister was a vengful, manipulating liar.We don't know what to believe. He is a liar afterall, but CPS hasn't shown us any different thus far.

CPS needs major improvements in order to insure the safety of children.Reading the reports by other members is even more scarier, to see it take place out side of home when its hitting so close here.

A shame indeed

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

I have personally been on the other end of this Agency's misconduct. In fact, even after the case was "closed" they are still harassing my family. I cannot imagine putting my kids through this anymore. CPS has unlimited power in Texas and can violate citizen's rights with no recourse.

Final Note

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

CPS is a state run organization. Not a city run bunch. You have to take to your legislators to get anything done. I find it interesting that there's all this row about the Texas Youth Facility and child abuse and the gov, toll road rick, holds press conferences and fires the whole board and they have hearings. But when it comes to CPS, NOTHING. Children are dying and nothing's being done. Though many CPS workers are trying their best.

A sad picture indeed.

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

I hate to say that the mother may have acted out of her own intrest instead of her own- but that doen't excuse the fact that the ways of San Antonio's CPS office deals with sensitive cases where children are in danger irresponsibly! They are the ones that citizens think to in cases where our hands are tied in bringing justice or protection to the little ones that need the assistance so bad.

It is these officers of child protectice services that we call to investigate our suspicions and bring the children thier services with a fair look and knowledge for the high sensitivity it requires. After all it is the protection and the bringing to justice of the guilty that should be the concern and for front of the issue- not the wrong doings of all others involved- however nutty or illogical they maybe. I think that the thing that makes sence to me is that she sought the help and attempted to get the case looked at at the first occurance Which many parents fail to do so at all, which sadly results in these news stories that cry out, "SHAME ON CPS".

I agree with your statements.

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

After reading your statement, let me admit it hit at the core of my heart. I agree with you in a sence because my sister did reconsile with her husband against my family's opposition. She did so for reasons that she felt that she was jumping to her fears in an effort to protect her children, but after the realization that CPS wasn't viewing her as legitimate and called her a liar, after threats of legal action if case was determined to be unfounded.

Well, with out making excuses for her action I only meant to point out the faults of CPS here in San Antonio, indoing so I was truthful in all the issues that were involved how ever self incriminating as they may be. You are justly stating your response and I thank you for it, the more people talking about it and making it an issue of concern the greater the chance of the problem being made of great enough concern to put forth the changes that our city needs.

I only wish that our city would put issues such as CPS case investigations and child protection ahead of the renovations of our Alamodome. Is it not a shame? It is really sad to say that we can expect to see more cases as that you spoke of in the future.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

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

We, here in S.A. know CPS sucks. That's a given. The two poor angels who were found beaten to death by their 19 year old mother, who had had her two other children taken away from her, for abuse, prior to the incident, by CPS. CPS was suppose to have made something like 40 "attempted" visits to the apartment, but no one answered the door. What I find hard to believe about this post is: here is a mother making charges/statements to CPS, about child abuse by the father and then WHAT DOES SHE DO? "SHE LATER "RECONSILLED" WITH HER HUSBAND". HOW SICK IS THAT?

She suspects child abuse and moves back in with him. Then you go on to state: " now further suspicion drove her away AGAIN". Here we are at a later date and you expect CPS to get involved in your sister's divorce. You sister sounds as screwed up as her husband. She put her own feelings in front of the well being of her children. Proven by her going back with a man she suspected of abusing her children. Go ahead, tell me I'm wrong. What a bunch of nutcases.
