UNFOUNDED REMOVAL OF CHILD FROM HOME.
CONTINUED, UNJUSTIFIED INCARCERATION OF THIS 2 YR OLD BABY WITHIN THE GRIPS AND CONFINES OF THE TEXAS "DFPS"
VERY VALUABLE MESSAGE TO ALL INNOCENT FAMILIES
ASSAULTED BY TEXAS DFPS; AS WELL AS TO THE TEXAS DFPS!

Our "case" began in Ector County; Odessa, Texas. This state agency apparently has not much regard for county lines, as our 2 yr old grandson has been transferred out of Ector County to his second foster "home", no less than 50 miles from Odessa.

The circumstances which invoked a CPS "visit" into our lives may differ greatly from yours; however, unfounded reasoning, false claims, and unjust cause to continue to keep our children from us and their loving homes and families is as real to ALL of us collectively as it is to each of us individually.

To be suddenly forbidden to take care of your child or children is indescribable. The feeling in your heart surpasses description. Noone on Earth has the capability to care for our children as we can. We are raising them with love. We are teaching them, guiding them, feeding them, playing with them, caring for them, encouraging them and disciplining them With LOVE!

When THEY hurt, WE hurt! We know when they are happy, We know when they are ill, we know when they are apprehensive, we know when they are actually scared.
When they ARE frightened or anxious, we hold them, reassure them, envelope them within the warmth of our arms and our love to restore their feelings of comfort, safety and security.

The love we have for our precious children is our conscious guide in our raising of them. It ensures our childs safety, his emotional, mental and physical well-being, it ensures that they are treated with fairness and loving kindness.
Our hearts are filled with Love for our children, and to knowingly or purposefully cause harm or distress to our children is unfathomable.

WE HAVE NOT COMMITTED ANY CRIMES IN THE CARING FOR OR RAISING OF OUR CHILDREN! FALSE CLAIMS, FALSE ACCUSATIONS, MISTAKEN PERCEPTIONS, AND SOMETIMES EVEN UNPREVENTABLE, UNFORESEEABLE TRAGEDY BRING THE Tx Dept. of CPS into OUR Lives.

I have no qualms about an agency that steps in on the behalf of a helpless child, to ensure that a child's safety, health and care are being held in regard. I rather consider myself an advocate of such an agency.

HOWEVER, once the family has been thoroughly scrutinized, every last possible stone turned over; (I am NOT using sarcasm here, just speaking from experience.) once the facts are laid out and investigated and reviewed; when there is no evidence of abuse, neglect or ill supervision; When it is sent to this supervisor, that supervisor, visited and revisited; still not one sign of abuse or neglect can be identified,

RETURN OUR BABIES TO US! WE ARE THEIR SECURITY, THEIR FAMILIARITY, THEIR CARETAKERS, THEIR MOTHERS AND THEIR FATHERS, THEIR FAVORITE PLAYMATES. WE ARE THEIR WORLD!

SHOW "JUST CAUSE" FOR THE CONTINUED INCARCERATION AND THE UNDO PUNISHMENTS BEING THRUST UPON AND HURLED AT OUR INNOCENT CHILD AND FAMILY, OR RETURN OUR CHILD TO US SO THAT WE MAY BEGIN TO TRY TO HEAL THE EMOTIONAL TRAUMAS AND SCARRING YOU ARE INFLICTING ON OUR INNOCENT TODDLER AND OUR FAMILY!

WE HAVE ANSWERED FOR OURSELVES ;

WHEN WILL YOU?!!

"STATE AGENCY" IS NOT SYNONYMOUS WITH "ALL MIGHTY";
AND- THE "TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY AND PROTECTIVE SERVICES" IS NOT ABOVE REPROACH! THE TEXAS D.F.P.S.
IS NOT "IN-AND-OF- ITSELF" THE LAW!! TEXAS D.F.P.S. IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW!

THE TRAUMA BEING EXPERIENCED BY THE CHILDREN BEING RIPPED AND TORN FROM THEIR PARENTS, SEPARATED FROM THEIR SIBILINGS, TAKEN WITHOUT CAUSE FROM HAPPY, HEALTHY, SAFE, LOVING HOMES; FROM EVERYTHING THAT THEY KNOW AND LOVE, IS AFFECTING THEM BEYOND MEASURE AND SCARRING THEM FOR LIFE.

The empty, quiet house can render itself absolutely unbearable to the Mothers and Fathers guilty of nothing but loving and caring for their children. For innocent parents to have their GOD GIVEN RIGHT to HAVE AND LOVE,RAISE, PROVIDE and CARE FOR their child UNJUSTLY YANKED FROM THEM like they were crazed criminals, or worse yet, monsters who abuse, neglect, or endanger their beloved baby's lives is a heart gripping, mind boggling, gut wrenching experience!

CPS has and continues to overstep the boundries of it's intended use! Concentrate on aiding those who are legitimately in need of help, even crying and dying in the shadows- INSTEAD of relentlessly attacking those where no cause is found! The fact that "abuse or neglect" cannot be found within a family brought to your attention DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE FAILED.
What it means is that , By the Grace of GOD, a family has managed to develop and maintain decency and a sense of moral code, in spite of today's society!

Not every family is "hiding dark secrets" of abuse or injustices.Some of us are just "good families"! EVEN when put under the microscopic eye of public scrutiny, are "JUST GOOD FAMILIES"!!

Granted, DFPS does rescue children from horrible situations, and in doing so- are certainly saving lives; allowing children the opportunity to grow up in "normal" conditions, and even to find loving families anxious to give a needy child a home and family to call their own.

THAT is the vision I used to have of Tx Dept. of Child Protectiive services; or DFPS. Unfortunately, there is a dark, flip side to this agency! Instead of closing a case, and feeling a sense of gladness that the "would be" child victim of familial abuse or neglect is NOT aa victim afterall, but a cherished member of a loving family; and wishing the family well once it HAS established that there is NO abuse or neglect; as is in our case, and other cases that you are reading about here; It is a most unfortunate, disturbing, and unsettling fact that some CPS caseworkers seem intent on making the reunification of the Family as difficult as possible for people who have in fact been victims of tragic circumstance or simply falsley accused of abusing their children.

In the handbook of the TX Deppt of Family and Child Protective Services, it states reunification of family as one of it's main priorities. Apparently, and sadly enough- increasingly so; that is not always the case.

For those who are at a loss as of what to do in the event that your children are taken from their families and homes WITHOUT JUST CAUSE,
Please be advised of the following:
IF YOU HAVE A CASE RELATED COMPLAINT CONCERNING A DECISION BY THE TX. DFPS...You can contact the DFPS OFFICE OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS .They will research case actions to ensure that DFPS policy and procedure were followed and make recommendations.

Best of luck to any and all innocent parents and families who face a fight with DFPS resulting from false or erroneous charges of abuse or neglect.

Keep thinking postively, stay strong and keep standing and fighting for your rights and for the rights and well-being of your children.

It may be "The State" against One,
BUT THAT " ONE" IS THE ONE YOUR CHILD IS COUNTING ON!!

Righteousness must prevail, and we must not let them "win" just because they "carry a bigger stick"!!

Our baby was stolen from us on Feb. 19, 2007,
the day his 2 month old baby brother passed away in his sleep. We understood the temporary removal of the 2 yr old sibling to be "standard" procedure, pending investigation of the "death of an infant".
* Toxicology tests run on both children.
** Results: NEGATIVE for intoxicants or drugs of any kind in either child.

6 weeks after baby's passing away~
***Autopsy Report: infant's Death reported to be a result of NATURAL CAUSES.
**** CAUSE OF DEATH: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Loss of a baby is heartbreaking at the most minimal descript.

Courtdates rescheduled, appointed lawyer fails to notify and advise parent.

I drive 330 miles to accompany my daughter to court, after we sit in the courthouse for over an hour with no contact by her appointed lawyer... we learn of rescheduled date ONLY when WE call HIM from the courthouse...
He "forgot" to call her and tell her....

I was unable to attend the new date for the hearing, missing out on the opportunity to be heard by the Judge.

I Feel like this was a move by CPS caseworker to sabatoge me and not allow the Judge to hear my stance on this situation.
Having spoken with her on several occasions, she is aware of my stand and the valildity of "my argument" regarding bringing my grandson (our baby) home, back into our family and our home.
I BELIEVE THAT WHAT STARTED as an agency created to protect the welfare of children has given in to the LURE AND PROMISE OF MONEY , thereby transforming itself from a" Protective Agency" into a "For Profit" Business.

I firmly believe that the DOLLAR BILL has won out over the LIVES OF OUR CHILDREN, and they have become PAWNS in a sick struggle to gain another STATE BUCK!

I Love my family and refuse to stand idle while DFPS plays Monopoly with our lives and the tender life of my beautiful, loving grandson.I WILL gain audience with a Family Court Judge, this case WILL be closed and we will be a 'complete" family again!

COMPLETE that is~ to mourn together, at long last, as a family joined by love and Our FAITH IN GOD, the loss of our dearly departed, and eternally loved, forever missed Baby Brother; Cherished Son, Beloved Grandbaby Boy.

The next hearing is scheduled for August of '07.

Unable to give in to "submission" just because "they" say so, I am taking my case to a more "noticeable" level ; I won't settle for playing "phone tag" with a caseworker who is mostly unresponsive and is obviously insensitive to the concerns my daughter and I have for my grandchild's welfare and well being.

"Child Protective Services" is not acting with my child's best interest in mind. That much is obvious.

I stand now in the best interest of my beloved baby, to defend for him- the rights for which he cannot defend himself, to stand strong and fight for my rights as a loving parent, and I stand for all those who are free of guilt and are truly innocent of the charges that have their families carelessly, needlessly and so painfully torn apart.

this is my prayer for all of us~~~

GOD BLESS OUR CHILDREN AND KEEP THEM IN HIS SIGHT;
GOD BLESS US, AND BLESS OUR FIGHT.

I am willing to join forces with anyone interested in exposing CPS and publically "calling them out"
to answer for themselves.
I am here for anyone who needs me.
Any strength I have is yours to draw on.
I will keep this site posted on my progress.

Good luck to all who struggle with CPS today, and good luck to those that will follow.
( Father, Please Bless and Keep our Heavenly Baby Safe and Warm in Your Perfect Love. In Jesus' Name I Pray. Amen)
I welcome response to my post @
With GOD as my Witness and Jesus as my Co-Pilot, I am taking on the State of Texas with everything I've got!!

Sorry

AUTHOR: foster parent - (United States of America)

I am so sorry that you are going through this. As a foster parent, I had to speak up and defend the good ones that are out there. I have been a foster parent for over 3 years and it sickens me to hear about kids being tramitized even more while in foster care. I have fostered 2 sets of siblings and have treated them and loved them as my own. Unlike your situtation, these kids were being abused and negegled and yet they were still sent back home after being in my home for over a year. A few months later those same kids were removed again for the same reasons and I have now adopted them. Not only once did they have to go through this, but twice. I don't understand the system and but I do know it needs to change.  My heart goes out to you and your kids. Good Luck

Unconstitutional

AUTHOR: CrazyTexan - (United States of America)

I am rebutting the "law" comment.  This family was not given due process.  An emergency hearing within 24 hours is not sufficient to keep a child from the family.  This whole secret court process is unconstitutional.  Those involved in these proceedings are doing so outside the rule of law.  We at countygrandjury.org are convening grand juries of the people to present these bad actors for prosecution.  To restore our government offices to their correct role as servants of the people  not our rulers.  These cases of kidnapping and extortion of families by human services is happening world wide.  This evil must be stopped.  Children doomed to foster incarceration are very likely to spend the rest of their lives in prison as they are often unable to function in society later.

Let's get CPS involved in your life.

AUTHOR: Connie - (United States of America)

CPS sucks. They have never saved anyone. When I was being abused as a child they kept sending me home for more. WOOHOO. Now the tables are turned and they are keeping my daughter from me by lying and making stuff up. There is a little boy that lives across the street from me and he is always playing in the road. Do they care? Nope but my daughter ran away - not a crime - and got pregnant - still not a crime, just a statistic and they are accusing me of neglecting her. How can you neglect a teenager? I work from 8 to 5 Monday through Friday and yes sometimes I work overtime here and there and yet because I was UNABLE to go get her when they found her - they say I REFUSED - I am being treated like a criminal. They lied and said they called my only relative and he acted like he didn't know who they were talking about. HE NEVER CALLED ANYONE BESIDES HIS BUTT BUDDIES AT THE COURT HOUSE. Let's have CPS come over to your house and give you random drug tests and counseling sessions and see what they can come up with about your righteous life. Do you ever speed? Endangerment. Drink and drive? Well that one's obvious. Let's get some humans in control of CPS and maybe they can clean up this town. Until then CPS SUCKS. Odessa, TX.

~This knowledge was given by you in your post.

"I did not introduce a solicitation for advise."
~But you did by airing your dirty laundry in the internet.

"I do not enter a tepee uninvited. Good rule of thumb. I'm sure you agree."
~The invitation was posting your problem in a public forum that anyone can reply to.

Here's a good rule of thumb. DON'T TALK ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS IN A PUBLIC FORUM IF YOU DON'T WANT ADVISE OR COMMENTS ABOUT IT.

CPS rip off

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

would like to be in contact with Keely of Decatur, Tx. I have not posted a letter yet because my daughter is going back to court at the end of this month, but i would like to continue this fight against CPS. I as well believe that there are many good agencies out there who try to help children, but in our case CPS has admitted that the best thing for the baby and her mother is to come live with me in NJ, the father is the problem and he has now admitted to that and is willing to give up custody of the baby so that my daughter and grandaughter can come live with me. yet CPS also admits that they just don't want it out of their hands. they would rather leave the child with a foster family in TX than let it go to another state where they will have no authority. they are not looking out for this child, they are looking out for themsleves. i have joing ripoff just today and not sure if there is a way of each contacting each other without giving personal information. Let me know, joanne from NJ

Allow CPS and Texas Courts decide for the helpless victims

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

As a survivor or child abuse I say let the wheels of justice turn. These children of Texas which CPS is trying to protect deserve a fighting chance. They have no choice when born to abusive homes. Where there is smoke there is fire in all CPS cases.

To anyone reading this if you are hurting a child, please stop and seek help. You have no right.

More power to CPS, keep up the good work!

How do we bring about change of policy?

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

D.F.P.S. is an organization that ALL parents should be frightened of, but especailly if you're a parent that does NOT abuse your child(ren). I am an advocate of defending those that are too small, helpless, too old, weak and unable to defend themselves...it is our moral obligation to defend them...but this is NOT a witch hunt. As Keely stated, investigate the facts expediently and when a mistake has been made, rejoice in reuniting the family as quickly as possible. Move on to those in true need of assistance.

In the past 14 years, I have been closely related to three incidents with the department. If you're not frightened and think 'this is America', it can't happen here and certainly not to you, then hopefully you'll think several times before you innocently swat your child on the bottom for running into the street and the next day at school your child mentions it to his/her teacher! Be scared, be prepared and most of all make sure your 'innocent' child is prepared!

Feb. 1994 - My neice, 18 mo.'s old, was taken to the ER after being beaten into a vegatative state. She was adopted by my ex-sister and brother-in-law only 9 months prior as a healthy, very happy, outgoing, rambunctious infant, who knew no strangers. CPS was called prior to the incident, but because I hadn't seen any signs of bruising or physical abuse (the child's very strange change of behavior and my intuition that something was VERY wrong, wasn't enough to warrant an investigation) they would not investigate. The mother is serving two 35 year concurrent sentences for endangerment and assault of a child, but the child was sentenced to life in a prison of her own! She was made a ward of the state of Texas and we have no knowledge of her whereabouts. Horribly, horribly tragic!

Oct. 2005 - I once again contacted D.F.P.S., this is mind boggling every time I think about it, 104 phone calls on one couple that were known drug users, obviously neglecting and abusing their 5 yr. old son and even though I had a case number to "reference", I never spoke to the case worker or her supervisor. NOT ONCE did a phone call get returned...out of 104! I did speak to the state agency on 3 occasions, who attempted to 'help me come up with charges that might warrant an investigation'. That's right, drug use in front of the child, physical shaking of the child, verbal abuse, neglect and being made to stay in only one room of the house for hours on end was not enough to warrant an investigation. Today the parents are seperated and even though a judge ordered supervised visitation for the mother and her 'boyfriend' was ordered never to be in the presence of the child, the child's father still delivers him to the mother and boyfriend nearly every weekend...unsupervised!! Where is D.F.P.S.?

Weds., Dec. 12th, 2007 - A GREAT dad, he's single and one who has had custody of his 11 yr. old son for the past 8 yrs is now battling D.F.P.S. Why? Because for the second time in one week, the boy, trying to avoid being 'grounded', hid a progress report from his dad that needed signing...when did he show it to him, as he was getting out of the vehicle to go into school...Dad overreacts, because he had dealt with this same issue just a few days earlier and pops the child with the back of his hand (directed at the child's arm). The child lifts his hand to block and ends up with a bruise on the back of his hand. Four hrs. later, D.F.P.S. is calling the dad to the ER. His son was taken there so a physician could verify that it was indeed a bruise on the childs hand. Never being allowed to see the child, the child is then turned over to the mother. She is a stripper, that works nights and lives too far away to take the child to school. Dad is not allowed to see or speak to the child while D.F.P.S. investigates. What a joke...there's been no investigation...only demands. D.F.P.S. tells the dad this is for a 'cooling off period' and they have cleared it with the school that the absences won't count against the child. Dad has hired an attorney, but though no charges (according to D.F.P.S.) have been filed, D.F.P.S. wants the dad to take an anger management course and if he agrees they'll do their best to get him TEMPORARY visitation rights. I'm mortified! My own husband (who is an awesome guy and dad) isn't as close or in tune to our children as this guy is with his son. This is so far from anything reasonable.

BE SCARED...IT COULD BE YOU!

Look at Baby Grace. D.F.P.S. is missing the target. If they spent time investigating and returning, they wouldn't waste time retaining the innocent and ignoring the ones that truly need help.

What happened to common sense? What happened to Constitutional Rights? Illeagal aliens have more rights than U.S. Citizens in their own homes!

Even scarier is the fact that we as parents have no clue what is considered appropriate by D.F.P.S. as acceptable parental behavior. Thousands of kids are on the streets shooting people, raping women, joining gangs, robbing and defacing private properties, breaking into homes and businesses, don't take my word for it, turn on the news any night of the week...but don't discipline your child by swatting. When swats were allowed in school...we didn't see students and teachers dying at the hands of another student. Respect for authority was honored. I feared doing wrong because I feared the consequences my parents would force upon me. I am a stable, happy and law abiding citizen. I was not abused!! I was disciplined to respect others. Of course there will always be those who 'abuse'. Beatings are not and never will be acceptable. But controlled swats are discipline..not abuse. Have we just lost all concept of common sense and where to draw the distinction between discipline and abuse?????

Who investigates the horrid conditions of some foster homes? A sickening number of children die every year in foster care. Many, many of these children are removed from loving, safe homes because of a 'suspicion of abuse' and placed into the hands of abusers. The case worker and the abuser should be imprisoned in these incidents. What are they thinking??

We must DO something NOW! We must ban together and fight whenever necessary to maintain the inalienable rights of the American Family.

Rather than focusing on all the wrong doing of D.F.P.S. we need to focus on correcting the wrong doings and form a right fighting organization that actually protects children and the elderly without destroying the innocent family units. A shift of power to defend and protect, rather than search and destroy is what's needed immediately.

I have not been able to find any case studies that show the percentage of 'innocent families' that came under scrutiny by D.F.P.S., then were reunited when no evidence of abuse or neglect was found. I would love to see such a report if anyone has information on it's whereabouts.

It's a silent epidemic, for which to date, there is no vaccine. We must find a cure to survive.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WHILE YOUR TODDLER IS IN BABY JAIL

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

First of let me express my deepest sympathy to you and your family in this much understated "difficult" time. I know and feel your pain as I to am going through the same thing with DHS here in Philadelphia Pa. Only My 5 yr old son broke one of my newborn twins arm.


Not because of jealousy as everyone in our case wants to believe, but because he was trying to help me with my twins.

When i read your story,up till that moment I thought I was alone in this war. But I am not glad to see that there are others that live my nightmare every day.
I can not eat or sleep and my children have only been with DHS for 38 days . I didn't expect it would go on this long because I just knew if you told the truth they would see just that.

But sadly enough Iam still struggling with this every day of the week, every minute of every day. My children were never abused and I totally agree with what you are saying, our children need to be in our loving homes with us.

Sadly enough my son has been abused since DHS has invaded our lives. My twins are being neglected and no one seems to care about my babies.Then to make matters worse the system is dragging their feet as slowly as possible. It's like they just want "custody" of my children so they have a job to go to come Monday morning.

The foster care agency does not believe my son or myself nor does DHS when we complain of the to say this nicely..."mean and cruel" behavior that is being thrusted on my son while in baby jail.

I mean is this constitutionally correct? Where does it say to take our babies and give them to people who look at them as a money source along with as a burden to their own lives. They have seperated my boys after taking them from the only person that could truly take care of them the way they should be taken care of.

imprisoning babies because of an accident just isn't fair... not now not never. And something should be done. They should have a sliding scale protocol. For cases such as ours they should have manditory 30 day limit to find out whats going on, and then release our children to us.


The only thing that you have on your side that i don't is your child probably won't remember this whole ordeal....THANK GOD! But as for my child his memory is in full force and not only does he remember being taken away from mommy, but the abuse he has had to sustain while in the care of "safer" people that the state seems fit.

May God Bless and keep your family safe healthy and mentally healthy.... and please know that you are not alone....Iam right here in Philadelphia,Pa

By the way... everyone reading this ... please find it in your heart to say a little prayer for my children Durell, Jaden & Jordan as only God can help us all through this time of distress. I will also pray for you and your family,,,,God be with you

Lubbockman; are you implying intimate knowledge of my case?

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

Dear Sir,
Is your response to my post intended to imply that you have intimate knowledge of my particular case? I did not introduce a solicitation for advise.
I do not enter a tepee uninvited. Good rule of thumb. I'm sure you agree.

Law Speaks

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

Your case went before a judge within 24 hours as required by law and the judge found that the removal of the child was justified and in the best interest. The child was appointed an attorney and the parents were instructed as to how to locate at attorney or have one appointed for them. If Texas DFPS is unjustified, would one of these people stop the process? YES

There is a problem, ask the parents to work though it and make a better situation for the children. DFPS wants kids with parents! It is the law and is the better solution for families.
