Now some of you know but heres some back round. Due to unfortunate events that accured and a nurse who has since admitted she had an ax to grind, and a case worker who really needs love in her life, My kids were taken by CPS , Since then the judge has seen in our favor and reunification is set to start with in 60days. We have a new case worker who is eager to close the case as he sees no founding in it what so ever. So thank fully things are going good in that aspect. However here is the rub...
CPS has been having my kids go to all kinds of specialist up until my new case worker stopped it. Now this would normally be fine if they were doing it for the benefit of the children instead they were trying to see if the kids have issues they can hit me with in court. Now of course they is nothing there except my oldest daughter who was born with issues. However they still put the kids through evasive and traumatizing percedures for no reason... Do you think this should be allowed to happen? How would you react if it were your kids?
Second issue is we do not go to church I did not want to expose my children to it until they were old enough to understand. However the homes the kids are in they are going to church every sunday. Which that on its own I could suck up except they are now telling dad that because he doesnt believe in god or go to church he is wrong and bad. Totally not ok which that attitude is what I wanted to aviod. So should they place the children in families that go against the parents own religious choices? Would this upset you as well? Let's say your Christian and you kids were places in a pagan home and started following those believes would that upset you? How should they handle religious beliefs?

Unfortunately, your children were in a position where they were placed with a temporary foster home. Luckily, there was another family who was able to care for your children while this unfortunate circumstance happened. They took time out of their life to care for children who were not theirs. I wouldn't expect them to stop their life (going to church), however, I do think it was VERY wrong and inappropriate for them to tell your children that their parents are wrong and bad because they don't go to church/believe in God.

I THINK you missed the question. Nope, didn't miss it at all. CPS first concern is placing the child(ren) in a safe home, not in one that fits the parents belief system. That would make it much harder to find temporary homes for children.

Personally, I would raise hell if there was abuse in the foster home. Do you have any proof of it? Is there any way to make a claim?
