I am involved in a CPS case for spanking my daughter. In September of last year I spanked my daughter with a belt for continuous bad behavior, in school detentions, numerous referrals, and repeated phone calls home from her school. She was upset about being spanked, so she went to school the next day and lied to her teachers and said that I beat her with a belt buckle and stepped on her, (I am over 200lbs).

CPS never even took her to the doctor or to the emergency room to get checked out by medical professionals. She had some little marks but nothing remotely close to being beaten with a belt buckle. CPS and Warren Police Department was called by the teachers, so my 4 children were interviewed at the school for hours with no adult or parental supervision, and the answers were used to build a case for 4th degree child abuse, which I was charged with and all 6 of my children removed that very same day(9/28/2012) and placed in my sister's care. 

Two CPS workers showed up to my house along with 4 WPD cars, in which my children were in the car with them. They searched my house from the top of the house to the basement, refrigerator, cabinets, and everywhere with no warrant or just cause. Lindsey Rauch CPS worker even had me pull my 3yr old son and 1yr old daughter's clothes down in front of all those people to make sure no bruises were present. 

October 2, 2012 there was a meeting held over the phone in which I was asked questions and was basically told by CPS they were seeking termination of my parental rights and that I wouldn't be getting my children back. So I was given a court appointed attorney Paul Kushner, who was the worst I have ever seen. He didn't object to anything, question anything, or do anything that would help me to get my children back home. In October of 2012 I submitted to my first random drug screen, which was negative, found my own counseling services, enrolled in parenting class, and followed all of CPS's recommendations. I was only allowed a visit once a week for 1 hour with all 6 of my children, and a visit with my 1 and 3 year old for 3 hours a week.

The supervised visits were held up at the Macomb  County DHS office in Clinton Township on Dunham rd and I had to catch the bus there. I spent November and December of 2012 going back and forth to Macomb County Circuit Court doing DNA tests for my children, so it was a waste of taxpayers money for answers I had already given them. I had been back and forth to court monthly until February 26, when the children were adjudicated and had became temporary court wards. I started parenting classes in January and graduated in March of this year. I had submitted to more random drug screens, psychological evaluations, and everything recommended. The Parent Agency Agreement was then entered into court in February of this year and I was already 80% completed with the services they were asking me to do before I was ordered to do them. I am currently on probation for a year for spanking my daughter as well, so I comply with all the terms of my probation. I  had my youngest baby, which is now almost 3 months old and CPS removed him from the hospital and gave him to my mother because the other kids are in care. The children were given an attorney, Dana Krause, who doesn't meet with them, interview them, or even observe a birth family visit so she is biased and don't think that the children are safe with me. My sister has told everyone how well the visits go, since she is the children's caregiver and no one ever listens. Macomb County DHS is unfair and not willing to uphold the laws they use to bring your kids into care they make to you. I have completed ALL services necessary to satisfy the court order. Karen Albany the present Foster Care worker, had recently added family therapy June 6, 2013, that didn't start until September 15th and we have completed that as of November 19, 2013. The Foster Care Worker Karen Albany, and I have numerous emails, where she stated she put in referrals for family therapy to take place. At the time I was 32 weeks pregnant and she didn't complete the referral until August of this year. I had my newborn AUGUST 28, 2013 AND HE WAS TAKEN AND PLACED IN FOSTER CARE SINCE FAMILY THERAPY WASN'T COMPLETED.

This worker has never been reprimanded for taking her time with the completion of referrals and I am suffering without my children and my newborn. I was told when I completed my anger management therapy and submitted reports of my progress, I would be granted unsupervised visits. Once I did that, then something else was ordered for me to have unsupervised visits, so once I complete that, what else is going to be ordered to keep me from getting my children home where they belong. I have been more than cooperative and willing to do anything to prove to these people that I am willing to do any and everything to get all my babies back home.

They treat people unfairly, give parents false hope of ever being reunited with their children, and they emotionally and mentally abuse children by keeping them from their parents. Please help us be united again. It is so many parents who are falsely accused and children wrongfully taken away from us parents, then make the children lie on their parents for title IV funding. We need to be heard. The prosecutor always threatens if we attempt to go to trial, so that the state has to prove their case, they will terminate me and my husbands parental rights

. We don't have any money for a decent attorney and we are unemployed due to the continuous demands from the DHS/CPS workers and the court. After 14months of supervised visits we were granted unsupervised day visits but since my newborn has been in care, and since we have not been receiving a lot of visits with him, he doesn't really know us. My heart is broken and my hair is falling out


I just found out on the cps website that they removed my children without a court order, and they weren't supposed to. There was no immediate risk of danger or harm, no school reports, doctors reports, police records stating I have ever been physically abusive towards my children or anyone else. CPS removed my newborn and sent him to stay with my mother without even filing a petition for removal, or even a signed court order for removal of any of the children placed in foster care at this time. There were no reasonable efforts even made to prevent removal of my newborn, I have everything for him and my pregnancy was drug free. I had no knowledge or any education of what my rights are because they never tell you, that you have any rights at all. Lindsey Rauch of Macomb County CPS removed my 6 children without a court order and Ms. Lenden Favors of Wayne County CPS removed my newborn from the hospital without a filed petition or signed court order for removal of my children. We must expose these criminals because all our children are in danger. Macomb County DHS is making my 9 and 7 year old daughters have Psychiatric Evaluations to see if they need medication while they are in care, when they never had any mental issues before coming into the foster care system. I am requesting therapy reports for my children and my so called CPS records. This referee Diane Femminineo is biased in her rulings and is being unfair. She listens to the recommendations of Foster Care workers who don't care to put families back together, nor do they follow their own Parent Agency Agreements or Service Plans. There are more parents like me, who are being wrongfully kept from their children. My children cry and their therapy records prove they were ready to come home a long time ago. These workers lie on the petitions and make up things about parents to remove the children, then never have any intentions of sending them home.We need to have our stories told so that these people can be investigated. I will be telling my story to state and government officials who are powerful enough to change things, contact sources who will be interested on how many laws are being broken, and who will be willing to get rid of workers who constantly break laws and violate parental and civil rights.,
