    Well I know that the DHR is wanting me to sign away my rights to my outta control 16 year old daughter. What should I do. Because I’m not sure if they are helping me or hurting me.


  2. First battle lost says:

    A Judge in Georgia just ruled against me as a family relative who is seeking adoption for my niece and nephew. I live in another state and passed the ICPC background. This judge was previously a DFAS lawyer who previously placed their older sister with my mom. DFAS violated laws regarding protocol in locating family placement. This issue was not addressed in the final judgment of this judge. Instead, the Judge prefers to allow the children to remain with the foster parent who is related to a DFAS caseworker and who has relationship with a drug user who has access to the children.


  3. First battle lost says:

    I just lost the first battle in court against DFAS. The Georgia judge, once a DFAS attorney, prefers the children to be adopted by a single foster mom who has a relationship with a drug user who has access to the children. I am a biological uncle who has passed an ICPC background in California, but the courts refer to me a technical relative. I would like to do the appeal, but my lawyer told me that my chances are slim and costly. I have already spent thousands of dollars to fight an undefeatable system which favor DFAS on a conflict of interest levels. Are there any financial support or any attorneys out there who would be willing to help in saving our children from a corrupted system? I do want to continue the fight but need helon

    Thank you so much for your site. We’ve also had three family members taken by CPS, one permanently, and this site has been a valuable resource. Thank you.


  5. Mary Bissell says:

    I hope you don’t mind: I’ve started a petition to find my nephew, who was taken without evidence. CPS didn’t allow any of his family to even visit him, and put him in an adoptive home within 9 months. Please consider signing it:
    There’s another petition there as well:
    I looked up her claim about her county’s CPS and found this:

    Thank you very much for all you do. Sincerely, Mary Bissell

    This has happened to my daughter and I am so frustrated! It is a long story but I will only put a few of the important things in this post…I have 3 daughters and 2 of them have children, I will start with the case of my middle daughter. She has a 14 month old daughter and the child is a very ill child, doctors can not figure out what is wrong with her. My daughter took her to the er several times and because she was taking her to the dr. so much the er called cps and my granddaughter was removed from her mother! I thought we took our children to the hospital when it is an emergency or if you call the dr and they tell you to take them in. I wanted to take the child but I was told i could not have her during the investigation due to the fact I had a cps case 20 years ago!! My case was closed because they did not find anything on me but since I had the case they could not let me have her. My granddaughter is in foster care still and she is still very ill. The case worker has told the foster mom not to take her to the dr unless it is a “real emergency” My granddaughter was running a fever of 104 and was told not to go to the er!! one of the dr’s said she needed to have eye surgery and the cps worker canceled it saying it was not necessary and she also needed tubes in her ears and following suit she canceled that one as well. My daughter has completed all of the classes they told her to do and they even made her go to a phyciatrist to make sure she did not have munch houser syndrome. She was cleared of not having anything mentally wrong with her she was just wanting answers as to what was wrong with her child. This has been going on since January 2014. When does it end?
    My other daughter, she has 3 children and cps came in (I agree she did not need to have her children) she has gotten into drugs and I think those kids should be with me but because I have a prior cps case 20 years ago I cannot have my grandkids. My oldest is 10 years old and I am the one he knows as a second mom and he is acting out and begging to come live with me. I hired a lawyer and he told me that cps is above the law and you can do anything to them, they can do what they want. He said “they want my grandkids be cause they are prime adoption children, not so much the 10 year old they dont care about him, but the babies 12 months and newborn” I thought they were there for the best interest of the children and being with me the one person that knows how to handle his issues and will take care of him. What is wrong with these people? Why are they tearing my family apart? They are treating me like a criminal or even worse a sex offender saying I cannot see them without supervision. I have a clean background and my kids were never taken away from me by cps. I was told by one worker it was up to the supervisor to give me the kids but they wont because I made the supervisor mad by asking questions and not leaving the office until I was given answers. All I wanted was to see the paper from the court saying they could take the kids away. They called the police on me because I would not leave, I was not causing any trouble i was very polite in my asking for the paper. but they called the police on me!! I don’t know what to do or where to turn I am paying a lawyer 2500 and still cant get my grandkids!!!
