In 2003 we adopted our grandaughter who was 3 at the time. Our son who was her father died. The natural mother gave up her rights to this little girl.
The materanl grandmother got visit rights from a district judge. This child had to go for visits every other weekend, one for whole weekend then the next visit had to go on a Sat. then on a Sunday. On one of these visits the step grandfather hit her with a stick and left bruses on her buttocks, and legs, we reported this to dhs, and the police, and the hospital. pictures were even taken of brusies.The police refused to do anthing to this man because of the mans uncle was the cheif of police. well the cps worker yelled at my husband over the phone and made us meet with her the the office of dhs.She meet with us speratly accusing uf os every thing. calling us names. then in Feb. she told us this child had to go back for a visit with grandmother. This time the stepgrandfather molested her. So we reported this again. We refused to send her back to their home. Had a court date on June 22 of 05' the procedings couldn't take place because of the child advocate couldnt make it. so was postponed. On the 24 the cps worker went to our childs daycare and took her, When we went to show cause our lawyer proved she lied to the judge and every one else to get the order to pick her up. We went to show cause again because they didnt have us on list for any judge. This took several months to get to see a judge. In the meantime the kiddy jail let her fall and break her elbow, she had to have surgery to put pins in her elbow. (and they were protecting her from us) After a month we finally got her placed with my sister. The case worker never showed up for any court dates, nor was summoned. They tried all kinds of tattics to keep her, They told us if we pleaded guility then we could get her back sooner. Well we did nothing wrong. We love her and would never harm her. My husband is part Indain so the Indains got involved they were going to come in and take it out of their hands but they decided to give her back to us, but this was end of Nov. All we had to do was go to a family counselor. Which we had been doing this all along. one of the issues Justice Davis lied about. other issues were her taking a bath with her mother at the age of 5, and coming and crawling into our bed after a nightmare. Usually after her going to grandmothers and her letting her watch chuckie. So in March cps dismissed the case.
