CPS They "help" your kids- by tearing them from their family. Phoenix Arizona
*UPDATE Employee: CPS and Case managers absolutely do try to keep children in fostercare and adopt them out, for $$$
July 2006 I came home from work to my boyfriends and my two and a half year old daughter. My daughter had a seizure. I called 911 and they took her to the hospital. It was there that they found she had a broken jaw. CPS as well as the Phoenix PD were immediately called in. At that time, I had never seen my boyfriend act out towards me or my daughter. It was hard for me to believe that he would have done anything. Not to mention he was in my ear the whole time telling me he didn't do it and I better not tear apart our family.
The day my daughter was going in to have surgery, CPS came in and kicked me out of the hospital. I was not allowed to even call to see if she was OK. We then went to a TDM (Team Decision Making Meeting). There they told me that they would be severing my rights and putting my daughter up for adoption, and also that they will be taking the baby I was currently carrying.
I was devestated. I did not know what had happened and how my life had gotten turned upside down.
When the Phoenix PD interviewed me, they kept asking me what happened, and all I could do was be honest with them and tell them I never saw him do anything. Because of my honesty, a week later I was arrested.
My dad was taking me to work. They followed me from my home to my place of business. Three under cover, two police cars and a police van. All with guns out to arrest me.
I was charged with a felony 4 child abuse and then indicted to a felony 2 child abuse. I sat in jail for four and a half months before they would release me. I had my son the day before I was released. They immediately took him from me when he was born and he was put in the nursery.
I got out the night before Thanksgiving. We went to go pick him up from the hospital (since CPS "wasn't" involved). They came in and said we could not take him home and they put him in a shelter.
We got him back, but this is only the beginning of a VERY long battle. I have been fighting tooth and nail for my daughter. I have done everything they have asked of me and much much more. I have voluntarily gone to support groups. Gotten a full time job, gotten my own place, going to college full time. I have never been on drugs. Nothing that they usually have to work with.
I told myself that I would never date again. I have an issue being able to trust men now. I started to have feelings for a guy. So we decided we would start to date. He lives 2 hours away, so we hardly ever see each other. Mainly just talk on the phone and e-mail back and forth. I will not let him meet my kids. Nothing. I have been talking to my therapist and he knows the situation and has not voiced any concerns.
I was sat down yesterday in their office. The supervisor sat down and was nice for about 2.5 seconds. Then she started yelling at me about "You don't even have your kids back and you have another man in your life?!" I couldn't believe the direspect. I have done everything for them, and beyond. I have respected them. I have proven myself for the last year and a half. And for her to treat with utter disrespect, I lost it. I told them how I felt and that I would get rid of any boyfriend the second they said. And they should know that. I have done so much to prove that I will do anything for those kids. There is nothing they can do to make me give up.
But from day one, even until now, my gut has been telling me that I am lying. That there is no intention of them giving my kids back to me. I will never give up, I will not let them win.
