I was in DCFS in Illinois for 10 years as a foster kid and in group homes. I have watched the staff in grouphomes taking money from kids and using it on themselves.

The Department of Children and Family Services insisted on placing me back with my brother after abuse and was not listening to me but what they wanted, they also use kids as money like buying them from a pet store for every kid they have in the system its more money for them in the funds they recieve from government.

I have not recieved any money Iam entitled to after my parents death at 8 or 9 when questioning this found out DCFS had used it when I was suposed to recieve that at 18 years of age.

I was also abused in foster homes and wish that no kid and up there if a family really cares I feel they would adopt without recieving funds. It upsets me that people read the newspapers and hear about reports of kids dieing or commiting sucide in these homes and still people believe this is a good agency to report when kids are being abused and they do it themselves.

Please people wake up yes theres kids being abused even in state there should be a better solution than this its sad that people dont realize this if they lost a kid while in the system they would think twice. I hope to write a book someday ,I was also being held hostage past 18 years old and had to fight to leave the system hmmm maybe it was because of the money they were afraid to lose. They claim these kids have problems but its lack of love thats missing its just another game to hold these kids longer and its sickening like I always say what comes around goes around.

You Are Right But Is This Why You Left

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

I have been on t.v for them not wanting me to leave at 18 due to my involvement with an older man, they can keep you till you are 21 in Illinois which to me is just for money because the longer they have you in system more money for them. I have found out alot of people in this government masquerade as good people and christian when in reality they care about themselves and are not christian I have contacted government officials and they refuse to do anything about issue including George Ryan in Kankakee, IL who is now headiing to jail wow big surprise lol. Anyway as a result of this I have extreme shyness which I was shy before but worse and its a struggle to find a job let alone talk articulate to groups of people when Iam paranoid. I have no money for colledge and they did not even care to teach me anything let alone about the real world instead of keeping me in a closed up house wow what parenting, I would have been better off homeless. Iam not out for revenge god will handle that. Good can come out of something bad for a small percentage some kids do get adopted into loving homes or better foster home. I will someday accomplish a book and try to find a way to help these kids that are being abused by government. I even ran for office in Aurora, Ill and got 30% of vote for Alderman at Large for this cause and the money I would make would go to help these kids, and those families that are homeless. There has to be a better way out there and can't see another sucide because noone cared about them in these homes. To all the people that lost there children in the system I want to tell you that I feel very bad for your loss and I cry when I read these awfull reports we all need to get together and do something about this or some other kid is going to suffer or and up dead. Not one person can do this alone I need the publics help we need to come together and stop being manipulated by government to think about ourselves. I will speak for these kids and Iam not letting my shyness or what they did in my life to slow me down.

they dont care about Families

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

Alicia, I feel for you & know you are 110% right on with what you say. I have been involved with CPS (Child Protective Service) here in Texas and have found that they dont care about Families. Most of them are people with College Degrees that were barely able to pass. This is like the only job they can get cause no one else will put up with the BS. People that are SMART & SAVVY will get work in the PRIVATE Sector making more Money & NO BS. Major Reform needs to take place within this realm of our society. I have often compared these people to NAZI STORM TROOPERS as they have the power to break up families, sieze children and manipulate people with very little oversight. The Courts are supposed to monitor the Children in Foster care, but a 5 min hearing every 4 months that is very Automated is not working.

I urge you and everyone else, that in this ELECTION year, speak to the candidates & tell them that while they are passing "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" Laws, they need to start passing tiugher laws to make CPS & DCFS and whatever other name they go by to be more accountable. They need to show a HIGHER & FASTER return of the children back to their families or more aggresive measure to help children be ADOPTED & PLACED with LOVING, CARING LONG-TERM Parents. Children shouldnt be warehoused just so people can justify their jobs. THAT IS CRIMINAL in my opinion even if their isnt a law for it.
