CPS Workers/Foster Parent/s Adoptive Parents who Adopted through CPS. Are Heroes Saving Victims-Children From a (Child Abuser/s)-Child Neglect Does Make A Person A Child Abuser)

Were you a child that was adopted out by CPS, a government organisation with children/s best interests at heart? And you are happy to have been taken from a situation that could never improve, because the Abusers never improved themselves, no matter how much your Abusers went through with therapy and special programs to help them improve themselves. And being Adopted out by CPS meant you were put into a loving home, because the person/s who brought you into this world, could never improve themselves and there life for you. Do you think that CPS should make money out of Adoptions so that money can go into providing for the needs of children currently in Foster Care. And if Daycare workers get paid for taking care of children. Well CPS Workers should get paid well. Since CPS Workers are Heros who work hard to remove Children from Abusive People & Abusive Situations. As well as Foster Parents who take on the fulltime role of caring for a child/ren who was abused. Foster Parents should get Paid and should be able to get government benefits for the abused child/ren in there care. Since its not a job to care for a foster child, its a fulltime role of a dedicated Hero. A Parent/s who takes on the duty of providing for/and raising a child/ren in there care.

Child abuse is the physical, sexual, emotional mistreatment, or neglect of children.[1] In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) define child maltreatment as any act or series of acts of commission or omission by a parent or other caregiver that results in harm, potential for harm, or threat of harm to a child.[2] Most child abuse occurs in a child's home, with a smaller amount occurring in the organizations, schools or communities the child interacts with.[citation needed] There are four major categories of child abuse: neglect, physical abuse, psychological/emotional abuse, and child sexual abuse.

  • No, I don't think CPS should profit off of relinquishing parental rights and adopting out people's kids. The system is flawed enough, and confusing enough as it is. How about the kids that could have gone back to their parents or parent, but were killed in foster care. Usually by someone who was under investigation, or left with the wrong parent. How about all those foster kids in FLcompletly lost in the system, no one knows where they are. Google, it. The amount is overwhelming.

  • Wow, whatever happened to doing something because its the right thing to do, not because there's a reward involved. And we wonder why are children are so materialistically dependent. If CPS starts profiting off adopting out other people's children then it's just an agency that sells babies, which is illegal. Children are not property to be bought and sold. Foster parents I believe get financial assistance to help with the cost of raising someone else's kids, money to go towards the children's food, clothing, etc. But to just be paid a monthly salary, no. You should not profit ever from raising a child. That's sickening.

  • CPS workers get paid enough and they aren't always the saints your post is making them out to be. Even they remove children that are not abused because they have a God complex and they want people to fear them. I don't think every child in FC is abused or neglected and I think SS should regularly investigated to be sure they aren't stealing children from good parents.

  • Yes, because there isn't already enough profit being made off selling children in america. /sarcasm.

  • Any time there are financial incentives to remove children from their natural parents and place them for adoption, there is a temptation for corruption.

    Answer by onethentwins at 12:46 PM on Mar. 11, 2011

  • There should be no financial incentive to remove a child from their abusive home. You try and make the statement that child care is paid well so a CPS should be paid well, have you looked at how much a child care teacher is actually making? (After you check your facts you may want to figure out someone else to compare the pay to...maybe a lawyer?) Either way, generally a foster family knows what they are stepping into when they are deciding to become foster parents. Same goes with adoptive parents. If you are calling for (which honestly, your post is hard to read and understand intelligibly) the government to make money off of removing and adopting out children then you have a lot more information to take into consideration and a lot more research to look at before coming to such a conclusion as a solution. Financial incentives to adopting out children for the government? That would leave some without a real loving home. Sad!

  • CPS should not profit from the removal of child or an adoption of a child. I believe this is making our goverments more corupt than what they are and hurting inocent parents out there. My niece just went through this in the state of Florida where her fiancee abused there 2 month old and was taken from her. the fiancee now in prison but because she could not aford a good attorney and after a year battle and doing everything they wanted classes and all she was pressured and forced into giving her son up to cps for adoption. They took her to court for child support when the child was taken from her from the begining she was only allowed visitation once a month with the child for 1hr and cps went into court saying that the baby was not bonding with the parent but was bonding with the adoption agency. she only got 2 months of life with her son on a day to day basis and they would not let any family member adopt him.
