our home has been falsely accused of sexual abuse to a child. The children were removed the police were contacted, we cooperated with everyone involved including the foster care agency. The worker of the children whom I housed for eight (8) years and a baby whom I had since birth only came out to visit the children since she received the case twice. The 15 year old child who has been under psychological treatment and therapeutic treatment for the past 8 years was not getting her way, developed a crush on my fiance and made false allegations that he has been raping her for three years since she was 12. Now this kid was in therapy, my fiance has not been around but only for two years, none of these issues were ever raised in therapy, nor in school, nor in counseling and now everyone is looking at these allegations with a fine tooth comb. Where were these allegations three or eight years ago? The system is not taking into consideration that they have been in and out of my home unexpectantly for the past six years without notifying us and no wrongful doing was every encountered and now this. I mean I understand they need to investigate for the safety of the children but how much more do they need to investigate. All they need is her therapeutic file and the word of the other children in the home whom were removed as well and are crying to come home. I mean the smaller child keeps contacting me on the cell phone and every week she goes to therapy she cries to come home.
I am appalled as to how much CPS and the foster care agency are getting away with. You are praised while doing a good job and once an allegation is made you are a criminal. You are no good and you are not even attended or spoken to until it is over. The agency is suppose to help you as you help them do a job and they do not even interact. You give your time, your emotions, your life to take care of these children and one allegation makes you no good any longer all because the child did not get to do what she wanted and my space was not set up for her and she was influenced by other people who are envious of your home and family. Now we are anxiously waiting since charges have not been brought by the police and CPS has not even taken the time to interview us with our attorney. Our life is at a stand still and the smaller children are suffering to come home. They are all siblings and as I understand they are yelling to the older child to come out with the truth because they want to come home. The worker who was suppose to be helping me who never came out to the home who was not involved in these childrens lives now makes allegations of corporal punishment. I do not understand how they get away with this especially since these children visited that agency on a weekly basis and no bruises nor marks were ever evidenced and all these children ever asked was for adopotion to belong they have been waiting eight years to be adopted and no movement. What will happen now only GOD and time will tell.
