  • They don't take children without the supporting evidence to make a case. I'll leave it at that.

  • No, they make an appt with u and check stuff out first. Legally, nobody can do ANYTHING to you based on hearsay.

  • You need to contact an attorney.

  • Yes, they can take your kids... they SHOULD investigate, and if they find no truth in the reports, you SHOULD get your kids back, but you'll be watched until they believe it never happened.

  • Thats just scary. You mean without any kind of warning or hearing or anything an agency just came to your house and took your kids and now someone else wants them? oh my goodness I sure hope there is alot more to this story than you put in your question.

  • actually...yes they will. this happened to a friend of mine. she's a wonderful mom and person. 2 former friends (dating each other) of hers decided they wanted her child because the girl didn't want to get pregnant. so the went to CPS and said the child was abused and neglected. she was only 2 months old. w/o evidence CPS took the child and put her in a foster home for almost a year. my friend was only allowed one supervised visit every 2 weeks. she was not allowed to watch the first year of her childs life based on hearsay simply because some dumb cunt didn't wanna gain a little weight and then give birth. she has her back now, she's 1 1/2 and very happy to be back with her mama
