Stop Child Protective Services From Terminating My Parental Rights

Target: Circuit Court Of McCreary County, KY
Background (Preamble):
My name is Rhonda Kimberly King. I am the mother of 4 children. The father of my children commited acts of domestic violence upon me frequently. I began abusing drugs as a form of escape. My children were removed from my care and placed in the custody of the state of KY. After being incarcerated for drug use, my life changed drastically.

While incarcerated I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savour. Released on shock probation 6 months after being incarcerated, I set out with the goal of being reunited with my children. I began working with Childrens Protective Services (CPS) to fullfill requirements they set forth in order for me to have my children returned to me.

I removed myself from the domestic violence situation I was in, accuired a place of my own in a nice neighborhood in Somerset, KY, and began attending NA classes and parenting classes as well. I have also been involved in counseling sessions with my children, and for myself individually as well.

I submit to random drug testing and am joyful to say that I have been drug free for a little over 1 year now. While in the state’s custody my children have been traumatized by the lack of permanancy in a home, being moved from one placement to another often, and by being placed in homes in which my children were unfamiliar with and uncomfortable amongst total strangers.

Although I have made mistakes in my past, and failed as a mother at certain times in my life, I feel I have learned many hard life lessons. Loosing my children is the hardest thing I have ever had to face. Childrens Protective Services have had my children in custody for a little over 1 year now and have made little or no effort to reunite us as a family unit once again. I only get 5 hours of visitaion with my kids every 7 days. I have only been getting them for 5 hours every Saturday for a very short while. I was only getting them for 3 hours every 7 days until a dear friend of mine attended a case plan meeting with me and between the two of us we were able to plea an extra 2 hours from the officials.

I miss my children so very much and all I want is to have them returned to me. At the last case plan meeting around the first of June, I was told by Childrens Protective Services that the long term goal for my children was to return to parent (RTP). Not even 2 weeks later I was contacted by a CPS worker informing me that Childrens Protective Services were moving to terminate parental rights (TPR) beginning in July.

First I was told it was nothing to worry about, it was basically a procedure the department was required to do after a child has been in care for a certain amount of time, however, that they didn’t have enough negative things against me to have my parental rights terminated. Approxiametly 2 weeks later this same CPS worker informed me that I wasn’t going to get my children back because the department had enough negative things against me to have my parental rights terminated. My kids and I have long been the victims of the games that Childrens Protective Services play!

My children have even been given specific dates a numerous amount of times as to when they are going to be returned home. They are fed false hopes rountinely. How can what CPS is putting my children through be considered “CARE” and “STABILITY”? I have met every stipulation that CPS has set forth for me and they continue to say that I have not made the needed changes to bring my children home. I have inquired as to what more I can do. I am willing to meet further requirements, but it would be to no avail. CPS has never had the intentions of returning my children to me.

When pleading with CPS for more visitation time with my children, from the beginning of this ordeal, I was told that they didn’t want to increase visit time because they felt that it would just make it harder for me and the children “IF” they didn’t get to return home. Would you consider that a service of reuniting families?

CPS moves to terminate parental rights so children in custody can be adopted because what many people aren’t aware of is that they make it a goal to adopt children out because for every child that is adopted the government receives “BONUS AWARD MONEY”! Those 4 human lifes are not for sale! My children yearn to be with me, their mommy, and my heart weeps daily for the sound of their laughter, the sight of their precious faces, and all of the “I LOVE YOU’S“. Please, I need your prayers, and your help. Help me bring my children home again!

All I’m asking is that you will take time to sign the attached letter to the judge, stating that you are requesting that CPS no longer be permitted to take others lives into their own hands, and be required to return my children to me immediately. I need your help in my fight to be reunited with my reasons for living…..my children.

Thank you.

Gratefully Yours,
Rhonda Kimberly King

The Honorable Judge Dan Ballou,

I am a resident of the state of Kentucky and a relative/friend of Rhonda Kimberly King. I am confident that Ms. King has realized her mistakes and failures and worked diligently to make a change in herself and her life. She has become a much better person and mother throughout the recent trials and tribulations she has experienced. I know that she has worked closely with Childrens Protective Services in regards to the return of her children to her. I feel she has and is presently being treated unfairly and unconstitutional. I am requesting that you place yourself in the shoes of this mother and experience for yourself her pain and suffering throughout this ordeal. Please Sir, I make my plea to you and the court that Rhonda Kimberly King’s parental rights NOT be terminated and that her children be returned into her custody immediately…and at last.

Sincerly Yours,

      If you look at the pages to the right of this post you will see different places to contact. The best place is the public defender’s office in your area. Also write letters to your state senator, the newspapers, the governer, and anyone else. The TV stations, be articulate, and state the facts. Keep writing until someone listens.

        Thank you. After reading the, “Fourth Amendment Rights”, I have come to realize my right as well as my children have been violated. The sad thing is, My lawyer doesn’t want to fight for my rights or just doesn’t want to. I am out of money to Hire another. What am I to do now that I’m out of money to fight this injustice? I want and need my children back as they need me. I have paid out close to $25k to fight this. I will fight for my girld till the end, but how can someone who can’t pay another lawyer to start this fight all over. My ex husband called in false reports and it’s on record that he did so & he was $31k behind in child support. Now he has sole custody of our 2 girls. My 5 yr old baby girl was given to her dad as a result of these lies. I want my babies back. This has been going on for 2 years now.

        All of this is bs….my grandson was taken because my daughter would call the cops when her boyfriend, now ex would hit her. Really take a child when the mother needed help. And nothing happened to the ex. Good job on protecting and serving. NOT !!!!!

      I am going through the same thing in Daviess County. CPS has already adopted out 4 of my children and took my 2 year old daughter from the hospital when she was 2 days old for no reason. They claimed I was a “flight risk”. Now they are trying to terminate my parental rights on the grounds that I am not finacially stable, however, I had my own cleaning company, my own place to live, and paid my bills. My mother is now trying to get my daughter and has been approved for everything, but CPS is saying my daughter doesn’t know my mother because my mother lives in South Carolina and has only seen her a few times. We have court this Wednesday to see if my mom gets her. If not, I am afraid I will lose my little girl forever. I have recently had to move to South Carolina because I am 8 months pregnant and did not want CPS to take this child as well. They are selling our kids and it is not right. They get $4,000 for every child they adopt out and more if it is a special needs child. Something must be done. This has got to stop!!!

      It sounds to me that u need a civil right attorney! They are free if you look in the phone book and start with any agency and ask a lot of questions and ask them where to find or locate a civil rights attorney that is willing to do it pro-bono! My brother had a situation and I felt his civil liberties were being neglected and the attorney agreed. She was free and she knew her stuff and when u have a lawyer that is fighting for what’s right instead of who has the most money u will see a different side of the legal system lol she was a pitbull and I wish I could remember her name now but that was like 7 years ago!!! Anyhow, when it comes to the kids don’t b afraid to call anyone and everyone in the government pages or Internet that u think might help u and don’t stop until u get what ur looking for :) !!! Also, ur state representative can help u as well so make an appointment and talk to them. Use the resources that are sitting around u and when u start asking questions, trust me it gets peoples attention even without u really doing anything so imagine what can get done when u really start pushing back. Use all ur research tools and keep notes cause nothing means nothing unless it’s on paper!!! The courts want to see records and proof and and names and dates. U don’t EVER want to run around accusing a government official of any kind including cps without proper proof and usually it does more damage then good to get all ticked off and call cps workers names and callin them liars and whatever just makes u look like a bitter mom who doesn’t want to accept responsibility. Now, I’m not saying let them treat u like crap cause that’s not the case. Ask for ur cps workers managers name and number and then find out who’s their boss and so on and so forth and make official complaints such as when they cut ur visitation times short ( that is an abuse of their power by the way) and make sure to always jot down day and time and what u were doing that day. I wish u nothing but the best and my prayers r with u and by the way, congrats on being clean and sober because in these types of situations they seem so hopeless and moms are so sick with grief and they just want the pain to stop that if they weren’t using before this would b a big reason a lot start up cause getting through the day without their children is like a knife cutting out their heart and nobody should have the power to make someone feel that way!!! NEVER, and I hope u come out the other side victorious and show moms it can b done!! Good luck friend, TLL

    I am in the same situation. CPS never intended to return my children, they even removed them from my parents to put them into foster care!! They are looking for those bonuses….this needs to be investigated SERIOUSLY!!! Our kids are in DANGER…WE NEED TO STOP CPS FROM DESTROYING FAMILIES!!!!!!

    • June 17, 2010 at 2:02 pm

      I’ am also a mother but of 6 the state of Maine took my first son and then took the other 5- 1 1/2 years later. the ages of my children are 16 13 10 8 7 my boys and 5 for my only girl.

    I am a former DSS social worker and I have seen this same thing happen over and over. It is horrifying to me what DSS can do to families.

      October 19, 2011 at 3:45 pm

      May 14, 2013 at 4:26 pm

      It is soooo horrifying. They are tearing families apart and making things worse not better

      July 1, 2013 at 10:01 pm

      Janice, how long did you work for DSS? Did what you did and the decisions you made affect how you live? Are you able to sleep at night? Look at yourself in the mirror? Why are you a former DSS social worker? What happened; did you get fired (because they have a bad habit of quickly firing those who don’t get their dirty work done for them) or did you quit (maybe not being able to take what they were doing to families that you were witnessing or partaking in, whether your role was a direct or indirect one)? I just want to know, because I am a survivor of what people just like you did. I’m not trying to attack you, because you have not wronged me personally. But, you have to consider that you played a role before you stopped working there and that you directly contributed to the destruction of many families; you knew then what they were doing to families and you stayed. Sure, you no longer work there, but the actions you took and the decisions you made will linger in families torn apart for years. My only question to you now is, “What are you going to do to stand up against what you found “horrifying” regarding what DSS has done to families?” Please don’t take it personally. I am asking you how you could stay there knowing and seeing what they were all about and doing. I don’t know youur financial situation (may have been your only income to support your family), but it had to be against your morals and scruples. Join the fight and help parents get their children back. Get on the right side. Thank you.

      I’m so glad to hear that someone that used to work side by side with these agencies agrees that they have too much power to wreck someone’s life based on personal opinion. It’s funny to me because I was watching the show Hoarders and another one called Addicts. Both of these programs had state social workers or dhs or cps workers as people that were featured on these programs and their names were protected so they didn’t lose their jobs but it got me to thinking how true it must be because all these positions are held by average people with problems just like the rest of us and yet the very same people you wouldn’t trust to walk your dog , is the same people that will get up tomorrow and cast judgement on others!!! Who checks up on these agencies and their workers to insure they are not abusing their power? Nobody that’s who and that’s why they get this false sense of entitlement and they feel as though the rules certainly don’t apply to them!!! Who are you suppose to turn to when these people are out of control? Isn’t that the question of the day lol !!!!

    i’m going through the same crap in Bowling Green, KY. the state workers have repeatedly refused to provide me and my kids the needed services to be reunited and have been trying to adopt out my youngest dau for 2 years now. they have used the “excuses” of me being a single parent, then i got married to my fiancee, then they changed thier song to my “mental health issues” that i wasn’t dealing with because of my kids being taken away they wanted me to seek medication management for my bipolar diagnosis that thier frigging specialist gave me after he lied in the psychiatric eval the state had set up for me to attend. i have hours of videos of me and my kids having very well behaved visits at the office and yet they continue to tell the court that my kids are unruly, are disruptive, and don’t listen to me and don’t want to visit with me. the videos clearly prove the state is lying about the reports the swear true to the courts and yet it seemsthey are allowed to lie about me in court. there is no justice from the justice system and no consequences for the pergery acts the state commits. it is wrong and illegal and should be stopped, but how?? someone please tell me how to get these “legal child nappers” to be held accountable for the wrong they are doing to me and my kids.

      I am writing letters and sending them to persons who are in position to review policy and make changes to today’s CPS. My family has also been targeted but I am strengthend and intend to fight with all my being to assist others to the best of my ability. I could really use your help and your stories. Please email me at lkegarr@comcast.net; I assure you that I am determined to get these issues heard, this is do different than human trafficking when our babies are unlawfully removed and we are left hopeless because the state has the money and resources. We are powerful together, and it’s imperative that we charge them to revisit the oaths of our founding father’s because we fall way too short and have somehow abandoned the deeply touching statement “WE THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE”, because the so called perfect union that’s being formed has no ethical value or integrity. CPS is an organization that is needed but even RAT POISION with it’s 97% “good, wholesome food” kills it’s digestor with the small 3% poision that’s hidden within. Please, let’s attempt to help each other lkegarr@comcast.net

        Amen to this and I wish u the best of luck and remember some of the workers are trying to do the right thing but unfortunately they get lost among those that are evil and have personal issues with a “certain kind” of parent and they attack with claws drawn so when u collect the stories remember the courts like to here evidence and not just stories of people that feel the courts suck lol so get people to list exactly what laws they believe were broken and what rights were violated and this will keep u on track and it will push the issue home to to the local government officials can understand and even send ur proof and letters to ur state rep and use their own people against them….. I promise they all will back away of someone they feel is gonna get caught up in some scandal cause these are all elected officials and it’s lonely at the top when everyone thinks ur guilty and let them feel what all these helpless parents and children feel when it seems nobody cares what they have to say and they are already guilty long before getting their day in court cause they had a lunch and they discuss cases and settle e and then the parents are left standing looking frustrated at their lawyer considering their fate was sealed long before that moment. It’s a sad truth and this is where we all say No way , not anymore!!! ;) thank u for everything u do , TLL

    Believe this mother as well as us other mother’s deserve our children back! You say it’s about the children? Your the only one hurting our little helpless babies. They don’t deserve to be in the middle of your judgement. Regardless if we do services or not nobody but god can judge our parenting. Some parents do exactly to the t of wht court askes of case plan and still their children are given away as if they were an item to sell. they cry out to their families and get no comfort or their mommy’s or daddy’s voice touch or love to save them. they are helpless. we deserve and should get our babies back now. CPS gives our children to sometimes non-convicted molesting, abusive and ungrateful people. Who first become foster parents for money which is the root of all evil. Yet will ignore those allegations or warnings from parents who know their feelings and their children just so you dont lose out on money. Then the majority of the caseworkers don’t even have children as well as are ex-addicts and secretly molest the innocent. Then will stand as if they are correct and honestly right in what they do. God does not allow the devil to harm us in any way he dont feel we need to make us stronger. With the strength we have and the truth of righteousness, what you social workers and court system do will eventually come out. I hope you are prepared to experience extreme trials for what you have done to the families who deserve to be as one that you ripped apart. Only god could judge us. We chose to have our children so why then you feel you must intervene in that when really you could care lee. have children of your own and stop kidnapping ours. we need to stand strong, fight together in what is right and push the issue to be heard. Study our rights and what is common sense that the law nor any human being cannot and will not do to us as people who deserve respect. regardless race, class, or simply how much money we have. we as people are all different and come from different cultures and cannot by law be judged by how or what we teach or do not teach our kids especially when the law is teaching and raising children in the worse way possible. Yet we our a country united and and free but ruled for money and power.

    same thing has happened to my neice, cps told her to come up to ththeir office they needed to speak with her. when she got there they told her they were puting her two children in foster care. she didnt know any better, so they took her children. now she is doing everything they have asked her to do and its still not enough. me being the aunt have tryed to get them in my care, but cps dosent want me to have them, now i had to get lawyer and had a hearing, judge wants another hearing on june 24, not really counting on them letting me get children. my lawyer said it sounded like cps is running a child ring. i have paid for a home evauation taken drug screens and everything was good, now i have just learned that the mothers lawyer told her cps was not gonna give her children back even if she does everything she is supposed to do. also told her the only way was to sign her rights over and let me adopt them, i told the mother not to sign anything, i feel that is a set up cause the foster parents already want to adopt the children. we need to all step up and do something about the cps getting away with tearing familys apart just so they can get that bonus, money is the root of all evil. we just need to figure out the right people to contact, that want just ignore the situation a turn us away. i live in tunnel hill ga, if anyone knows who to contact please contact me asap at apresley29@yahoo.com

    I have read many letters today. In my opinion,The department of Human service/Child Protective/ Department of Family Service and so forth the highest paid lowest intellect employees imaginable work in the field of child welfare. The abhorrent tragedy, service providers absolutely perceive themselves as empowered? The cruelest, abstract ,froward, and derelict intentions finagling citizens? The system protocol; procedures, rules, regulations, guidelines has apon inception been eroding the dynamics and original program intentions?
    The egregious agencies for the department of human services should hang its head in shame,in my opinion.
