It is all about the money. I can guarentee that the lobbyist for DFCS in Ga. help kill this bill. Follow the MONEY!!!!!! The reason they want to have closed hearings is not to protect the child but to protect themselves – they know in 99 out of 100 the cases are bogus. They know they lie – that is what is happening in Jackson County Ga right now with my daughter Alice Samantha Thomason and her girls Shawna, Carly and Sara

My dear friends, families, children and the many victims of Child Protective Services
(CPS) or DFCS as it is called in Georgia.
During my four years as a State Senator of Georgia, I was shocked and stunned by the
hundreds of mismanaged cases of the Department of Family and Children Services
(DFCS) in Georgia and Child Protective Service (CPS) across the nation. I have worked
with, answered calls, emailed and sent letters to desperate parents and children across the
country because they have no rights and no one with whom to turn.

my website: http://www.senatornancyschaefer.com for more information.
The Department of Child Protective Services (CPS) and other titles in other states has
become a “protected empire” built on taking children and separating families for money.
There is no responsibility or accountability within the system, and I have been
overwhelmed with the atrocities committed against children and families, and on many
occasions I have not been able to sleep at night.
CPS is a corrupt/political phenomenon driven by the government that is supposedly in
place to protect families and children. It is kept afloat by tax dollars, yet the victims,
parents, grandparents, guardians, and especially the children are charged for the system’s
This separation of families is a growing business because local governments have grown
accustomed to having taxpayer dollars to balance their ever-expanding budgets. Also, the
huge bureaucracy made up of state employees, lawyers, court investigators, court
personnel, judges, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, caseworkers, and on and on are
all looking to the children in state custody to provide job security.
The Mondale Act and then The Adoption and Safe Families Act set in motion by President
Bill Clinton offered “cash bonuses” to the states for every child they adopted out of foster
care. In order to receive the “Adoption Incentive bonuses,” local child protective services
need more children. Some counties are known to give a $4,000 to $6,000 bonus for each
child adopted out and an additional $2,000 for a “special need” childJudicial Committee it was gutted and rendered of no value through a substitution Bill that
I was not consulted on or made privy to. The three main points that were stripped from
the bill were:
1. The opening of family court to remove the culture of secrecy;
2. The removal of the financial incentives for adopting children out who are taken
wrongly from their parents and given to strangers; and
3. The removal of immunities from Child Protective Services or DFCS in Georgia in
order to keep corruption down and bring in accountability and responsibility.
I pulled the bill rather than seek to work with an empty, do nothing piece of legislation
that the leadership had shown they were not going to support or offer any involvement.
