  • I thought this post was really interesting as I am a mother of one child, when she was born her father totally changed he would get fustrated and lose his patients when she cried and he would yell, finally I had had enough! I called the police and told them they need to remove this man from my house because I will not allow him to holler like that around my child, he was removed and the next day, social services came out and took my child from me!! They had no explanation or anything, it took me 6 months to get her back and I fought like hell! My family spent thousands of dollars on lawyers! Who do these people think they are? That was so devastating and they have all the power, they can do anything they want. Its really sick.

  • My gf had the same thing happen to her thrifty steph. Her husband was abusing her and slapped her while she was holding there newborn, She called the police to get help and the next morning cps was there taking her children because "she was not protecting them and allowed him to hit her while holding there child" WTF. I felt so bad for her she got married and preggo at 17 was moved from FL to San diego cause he was in the navy , she had no one. It took her 2 years to get her kids back, even the foster mom thought it was BS. She went against rules and let her keep her children unsupervised and over the weekends because she knew that cps was in the wrong.

  • My brother had his 4 kids taken away. The house was clean, food filled with food. CPS went in based on a tip. Took the kids and asked questions later. When me and my sister read the social workers report we were floored! The report was 90% made up! and a judge has no clue except to believe what is in the report.

    A friend of mine had 4 kids 2 were by her live in bf. The bf had been having sex with her 2 daughters. She WAS NOT AWARE OF THIS.....CPS took her kids away for failing to protect them! She had no idea! if she had she would have killed the SOB! Took her a year to get them back.

  • I had someone call cps (dhr here in alabama) on me because my husband stopped cheating on me with her and it pissed her off (that and she was nuts) they came and and did nothign (thank god) but now i am terrified of taking my son to the doctor if he gets hurt (hes a five year old with no fear) or my daughter when she gets sick, because they have a file on us which means they can check their medical records without my permission (it totally sucks!!)
