Two days before thanks giving my husband and I dropped our 3 kids off at daycare on November 23, 2010 and we showed the daycare a bruise that we had noticed that morning on our oldest sons back. The daycare did not have an idea of the origin. We went home and began preparation for the quickly approaching thanksgiving holiday when we got a phone call from the McAdoo Police Department which is where we lived that that time.

  We proceeded to go over to the police station and my husband and I we interrogated for 2 hours. I at the time was 7 months pregnant and emotional and tired started getting vocal and yelling at the police officer and the caseworker named susan that were blaming us for hitting our 4 year old son and briusing his back. We openly admitted that we had at the time spanked him once or twice for offences like running in the road but never on his back. The caseworker didn't want to hear it. They told my husband and I that we weren't allowed to have our kids near him alone and he ahd to go somewhere else until everything was done. I wasn't able to carry the kids and we lived with disabled family members at the time. They didn't care they said that we had a choice either I took care of the kids myself or they went to foster care and I tried to do my best with much difficulty. My husband was only allowed to see the kids in the evening for 2 hours. We went to court on December 21, 2010 and the judge said that we had violated the FSP and that we were idiots and that my health and the kdis didn't matter, I had to obey what was set forth by the courts even though if my husband and I didn't do what we did we would have probably been in a car accident multiple times or I could have hurt me or our unborn son. I went into the hospital that night as well as my hudband did but my husband was released that night and stayed at the house I was at prior. My family watched the kids while I was at the hospital overnight for monitoring with my pregnancy. The next day I was bombarded by a relative that I despised saying that that night they were taking my kids because we violated the court order again. That was on my birthday. I was required to be sedated that morning from the stress.

I tried to talk to supervisor multiple times and they didn't care they just yelled at me and said it was our fault and that we didn't deserve our kids when we were doing everything possible to take care of our kids and to get them send home. On christmas my  husband wasn't even allowed to see the kids. I was required to go over to my relatives house sometimes until midnight to get the kids to bed. In which was causing problems with my pregnancy like moer swelling and more pain. I told the case workers supervisor again and they didn't care once again. I was in the hospital off and on every other day due to pain and /or anxiety with this whole situation that I couldn't do my job as a parent properly and my unborn son was started to have problems. It came to a point on new years day that my OB/GYN said that I was to be on bed rest for the remaining days of my pregnancy since I was scheduled for a C-section in January and I was bombarded by harassing phone calls by the "foster parent' my relatives because I was not there. I told the caseworker and she shrugged it off.

I went into the hospital the first week of january for the scheduled section and they found bleeding and a tear in my uterus due to over exertion that I was being required to do when over the foster parents house with the kids. I was required to have multiple transfusions and I had to be put under general anesthesia due to my back being tense and the epidural not being able to be placed. 5 days later my and our newborn son was being released from the hospital and I was bombarded by the case worker and the foster parent saying I couldn't take the baby home and that I still had to go take care of the kids twice a day at her house after tearing my uterus and having a c-section.

 They started doing supervised visits once a week for an hour then that was it for both of us for 4 months when my husband and I moved from McAdoo to where we are now. Then they extended our visits to 2 hours. We didn't get overnight visits until april 2011 when we had to buy extra cribs and stuff since everything of ours went with the kids.

We got our kids back june 2011 and ever sicne they have had emotional problems with how they were treated by my relative someone that children and youth was paying treated my kids. My 4 year old son acts like he is worth nothing at times because he got beat up by the relatives kid, my 3 year old thinks she does no wrong because she was the shining star to the relative. My 2 year old cannot handle anyone leaving the house because she ahs seperation anxiety and thank god our almost 1 year old is pretty unscathed.

I have to deal with severe emotional problems and physical problems ever since this began and no one can or wants to help us crawl out of a hole or make them pay because it seems to us like children and you can do no wrong.

#2 Consumer Comment

I hope this advise helps

AUTHOR: Amerikan_lady(conserned citizen) - (USA)

 First off, my heart goes out to you. I have some questions and hopefully advice that could be benificial for you. I didn't read anything about a lawyer. Do you even have one? Did you know that especially in an agency filing a petition you have the right to an attorney and if you can't afford one you go to the bail administration and apply for one? The state has to provide you with an attorney.  Please be aware if you get a state attorney that you don't like or who won't fight for you than NEVER FIRE them if you do the state doesn't have to give you another free attorney. Instead you can advise them that you disagree with there stratigy and explain why and tell them you have no problem speaking your truth on the record. A lawyer definatly doesn't want there client disagreeing with them in court. You could insult them slightly in a nice way enough that they will want to with drawl. you definatly want an attorney who's willing to "trample" the agency if it's rightfully so..
     Also, anytime your wrapped up in a court action the agency has to provide assistance to you if it's neccessary for you to complete your FSP. For example, if they require that you have to go to let's say 2 counceling sessions a week and you have no car or way for transportation send them a letter in writing requesting what ever you need assistance with and why you need it. Copy everything. Never communicate about requests over the phone do it via email or regular mail and if you send correspondance through the mail than always get a "certificate of mailing" and snap a picture of your document along with the stamped certificate of mailing so you have proof it was sent, what it was that was sent, and when it was sent. If your requesting transportation and the case worker has to pick you up take you and drop you off you'd be surprised how quickly there requirements change.
   Rule #3 Always co-operate no matter how rediculas the request. If they want a drug test make them watch or have it lab tested or both. In the state of PA you also can choose your own doctors for counceling. A lot of times the Agency will try to persuade or convince you you must go through there agency to do any thing couciling related and drug screen related but that's a lie. You first have to get the outfit approved by the agency then you can get there recomendations and follow them. Your FSP can be ammended if the Agency wants to work with you.
    If your not satisfied with the Agency as a whole the are 2 options. Children and youth has a Rigional office actually 3 I believe in PA. Do a google search for the one nearest you and get there contact info. Your 2nd option is look up the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE and get the address for the "SPECIAL LITIGATIONS SECTION and write your complaint/story to them with all attached evidence. If it has grounds for investigation they will send an investigator up form washington.
   Lastly you've done everything right. I'm disgusted with this system. My husband beat my daughters with a wooden paddle. Hurt them bad I called police they said there was no law against  "corpral punishment" and he nearly broke our son's arm this was on video and again the police did nothing The abuse was reported to  Case worker Aubrey Spradly with York County Children and Youth Services. She question my daughter at school and the abuse was confirmed I begged her to help me get housing and keep the children away from him. She closed the case. I was devestated. I had to relocate. This woman went out of her way to subpeona my co-operation while I was pregnant I also had a hard pregnancy. Only to let one of the children slip through the crack. My husband is a preditor, criminal and woman and child abuser the school called children serviceses making several reports the child still resides in an abusive and awful enviornment.
    The agency sadly is tarnished by such cases and such workers I will say not all are bad but the majority are. If people were'nt so scared to stand up for there selves and protest on a massve scale than these corrupt little agency's WOULDNT continue to desroy familes and lives with out consequence.
IF LEGISLATURES CAN OUT LAW BATH SALTS AND SYNTHETIC DRUGS BECAUSE OF NAKED FREAKS ANNOYING PEOPLE SURELY THEY COULD STAND UP FOR THE INOCENT VICTIMS OF THIS JOKE AND BOGOUS AGENCY. IF THEY INVESTIGATED DR. PHIL THEY'D PROBABLY TAKE his kids too. Otherwise they wouldn't be in buisness. It's not about the saftey of the kids it's about the money they make by picking on easy targets. Hope you successfully sew there asses and win.
