Although Petitions are not the best means to change the law. Anything that makes all parties not only responsible for their actions, but also gives everyone an equal right to express their views, is certainly a move in the right direction.

  Fellow Citizens of the United States of America.

Stand up for our basic rights
under the Bill of Rights contained in the

Constitution of the United States of America!

The experiment of Child Protective Services with regard to getting away with the unlawful violation of personal rights as guaranteed under the Constitution of the United States of America, must end.  Foster Parents falsely accused of child abuse want their due process under the law.  Currently, Foster Parents who are accused of child abuse are treated as though they are already guilty, with no proof of guilt provided by the accuser – namely Child Protection Services.  Even if proof of innocence is provided to CPS, those accused of child abuse are still persecuted with no due process of law with serious consequences that result in ruined lives.  Ultimately it is determined that through this persecution of Foster Parents it is our children suffer the most as they are ripped from  their homes and their families are destroyed for no true reason except monetary gain on the part of CPS.


We, Foster Parents & Citizens of the United States of America, Do Hereby



Legislators of the California State Legislature To Create & Enact Legislation for:

Foster Care Reform Concern #1

~  ~  ~

1.  Require Child Protective Services Personnel to Obtain a Warrant for

Any Reason for Removal of Children From their Homes.

This places child abuse allegations where they belong –

with the police authorities for due process under the law.


2.  Require Child Protective Services to Announce they Have or Do Not

        Have a Warrant and What It Is For, Before Obtaining Access

Inside the Home


3.  Require Child Protective Services Personnel to Advise Citizens of

their Rights under the Miranda Act.


4. Take away the “immunity” that CPS personnel currently enjoy from

legal prosecution of their unlawful acts.  The know they are above- the-law and the corruption, lies and falsifications of records are rampant from this enjoyed immunity.

~  ~  ~

Please Note:  Foster Care Reform is not only Nationally pursued,
but a
Worldwide Concern


Background Information:  Foster Parent Reform consists of 12 Concerns.  This Petition addresses Concern #1 stated as follows:


Foster Parent Reform Concern #1:  Foster parents who are in the process of adopting their foster child often find themselves faced with false allegations of child abuse.


This is brought by the social workers wanting to maintain control of the child in the system in an effort to continue to bring in large amounts of Federal Funds to their coffers. When this happens, foster parents have NO recourse and are at the mercy of the social workers and other Child Protection Services personnel.  These personnel all-too-often fabricate "lies" to make their case.


In addition, as it stands now, the social worker comes into the home without a warrant and forces the children to leave a loving, stable environment often placing them in homes that are not as stable or caring as what they have been ripped from. No matter what the reason, entering a private citizen’s home or forcing their way in with lies as they so often do is a direct violation of Amendments IV, VI and VIX contained in the Constitution of the United States of America.  (Please see these Amendments quoted at the end.)

The Dangerous Truth in What Really Happens to 99.9% of All Foster Parents

There is the Dangerous Truth of foster parenting that needs to be known – Please take notice.

1. It is not a matter of if; but rather of when, foster parents will face child abuse allegations. 
CPS admits this fact in foster parent training.

2. This means a foster parent will be  accused of child abuse.
 A.  These accusations are put forth by CPS, and 99% are False Allegation
          1.  Ex social workers admit that social workers take turns calling for each other on the
                  anonymous tipster child abuse hotline for the submission a false allegation
                  of child abuse.
          2.  CPS receives bonus money approximately $6000 - $12000 per child for removing a
                  child from “imminent danger.”
          3.  In order to continue federal funding, not only do quotas need to be met by CPS in numbers
                  of “substantiated” child abuse cases, but these quotas are required to increase per
                  budget period.  The result is that the ever-widening net is now including citizens who
                  are aware of their rights.  The net is now cast past the non-english speaking
                  and the uneducated.           
          4.  An adoptable child is viewed as a money-making commodity by CPS.  False allegations
                  heaped upon foster parents who are about to finalize adoption, serves these purposes:
                     a.  Numbers for “substantiated” child abuse cases are increased ensuring future
                             federal funding for CPS.
                     b.  $Bonus dollars are made for CPS personnel in the  removal of children from
                             “imminent danger”
                     c.  The children remain in the System, thus bringing in more $dollars from head
                             count.  Foster parents have no recourse nor rights in trying to prove their
                             innocence and getting their children back.
                     d.  The process is repeated by CPS for more bonus $dollars in the children being
                              moved from one adoptive home to another.

 B. Child abuse is against the law and a person is criminally prosecuted and can be put in jail
        for the offense.

 C. The first accusations of child abuse usually occur within the first year of foster parenting

 D. Child abuse accusations are rarely put forth by the biological parents or relatives of the
        children in care.

 E. Child abuse accusations are usually of “sexual molestation” and “neglect.”  Both are legal terms
        in criminal charges. 

  F. Agencies     a. Agencies will not back up those considered even possibly to be a child abuser.
                                     b. Agencies work with and for CPS (money is rec’d by agencies in kickbacks)
                                     c. Your agency will help CPS prosecute you for child abuse.

The Horrific Results of Child Abuse Allegation

1. An accusation/allegation of child abuse results in the removal of children from their
                   home – and, back into the System.
                       a. Foster parents have no rights to their ex-foster-to-adopt children in the System and 99.9
                               % do not get them back.
                       b. Foster parents who are adopting foster children have no rights to children in the System,
                                and do not get them back. (For More Information See Concern #1)
                       c. Foster parents have no rights for visitation or communication with their former
                                foster children in the System.
                       d. Foster parents have no right to be heard in court with regard to their former
children now back in the System.

2. An allegation of child abuse results in a foster parent being placed on the State Central Registry.
 (For More Information See Foster Care Reform Concern #2)
      a. A foster parent, no matter what, will be placed on the State Central Registry as
             the first step for use in leverage in getting “admissions” to child abuse.
      b. This is the same Registry used to keep track of convicted child sexual molesters.
      c. One is never removed from the Registry – even if found innocent through the appeal
              process.  It is a permanent record.
      d. Being on the State Central Registry (of child abusers) results in possibly getting fired
              and inability to obtain a job.  Financial compromise, thereof, is imminent.
      e. Being placed on the State Central Registry means your license as a foster parent
              is revoked.  Therefore, no children can be placed in the home.
       f. Being placed on the State Central Registry means you are not able to hold any caregiver
               job – even if you are a nurse.

3. A foster parent’s good reputation is ruined with children being taken away and put back into the
  CPS System because of a false accusation of child abuse.
       a. Family and friends will be interrogated about your being an abuser.  They will be
               threatened to be prosecuted as an accomplice if they do not comply in talking.
       b. Criminal investigations and interrogations will take place with yourself and your children.
       c. It is almost impossible to explain the complexities of being a falsely-accused foster
               parent to family & friends.
       d. A Foster Parent will be treated as though you are a criminal by the System
               and its personnel. 

It must be emphasized – The above regarding the State Central Registry takes place even if proof is provided of innocence and findings are “unsubstantiated” in any child abuse allegations.  When accused of child abuse, it is normal procedure with CPS to not take the chance that the foster parent is *not* a child abuser.  Indeed, it is CPS policy to consider all parents to be child abusers who have *Just not been caught, yet.*

The result is an innocent Foster Parent is treated as though they are

 a criminally-convicted child abuser.  This is accomplished by CPS with no criminal due process of law ! 
This is even if proven innocent.

The Reason for Foster Care Reform 

Foster Care Reform is comprised of the most important aspect of being a foster parent.  Foster Care Reform is put together by current and former foster parents who care about other foster parents and their children in foster care.  The reason for Foster Care Reform is to bring Constitutional, fair and lawful practices into use for foster parents accused of abusing their foster children.

1. Foster Care Reform is to help other foster parents who are not aware of the Dangerous Truth

2. Foster Parents need to know why other foster parents want to help them, so their lives and their children’s lives are not ruined.

3. Foster Parents need to know why there is a Foster Care Reform movement, nationwide, consisting of 200,000 foster parents

4. Foster Parents need to understand why 70,000+ foster parents are leaving and/or have already left foster care

5. Foster Care Reform does not mean getting rid of foster care.  Foster Care is necessary for the well-being of children.

Foster Care Reform may prevent a foster parent from being put into jail or the State’s Central Registry from false (untrue) allegations. Additionally, Foster Care Reform would provide foster parents with “civil rights” with regard to the children in their care.  Foster Care Reform addresses the lack of basic civil rights of the foster parents in many areas.

Petition Requests Elaboration

“Imminent danger” as the result of child abuse charges “MUST’ be accompanied by a warrant stating specifically what the social worker is there for, WHO will be involved and where in the house the worker is allowed to go. In order to get a warrant from a judge the social worker needs to provide positive proof of their reason to invade a private home, or other place and they don’t have this now because they act on “unproven” reports some sent in by anonymous phone calls.  Outrageously, these reports can be  fabricated by the social workers themselves.

A warrant puts the horrendous act children being ripped from their home and into the System, to where it belongs -- in the proper hands of our already-established police force.  Foster Parents are treated as though they have committed a criminal act of child abuse which supposedly justifies the removal of their children.  As such, removal of children should be handled by the criminal authorities wherein the Constitution of the United States of America guarantees our Rights as citizens to deal with criminal charges.  This means we can be treated as though innocent until proven guilty.  The rights of citizens with regard to removal of their children from the home are being  completely disregarded and violated. In essence, families are being persecuted without just cause by CPS.   Just on the *say so* of a social worker, parents are treated as already guilty, never to prove themselves innocent.  As a result, children are removed from the home.  The outrage is that it is done for bonus money and federal funding.

Once children are in the CPS system, CPS uses many corrupt techniques to keep the children in the system.  This is based on the fact that CPS receives bonus money for each child removed (from imminent danger) in the amount of $6000 - $12000 per child.  CPS also needs to exceed existing quotas of substantiated child abuse cases to continue the receipt of federal funding.  This removal from homes under the guise of “imminent danger” continues while the children are in the system.  This may include moving children in and out of more foster-to-adopt homes.  CPS maintains their own secret police in the form of investigators of child abuse.  CPS does not need to have any power for any kind of police action as we have police and laws already set up for this purpose. The existence of the CPS secret police is to circumvent citizen’s rights under our Constitution of the United States of America.

CPS works with the DA’s office in absolute corrupt power when it comes to child abuse.  False allegations of child abuse are used to illegally perpetuate the existence of CPS.  Because CPS operates outside of our established laws regarding citizen’s rights, parents have no recourse.  Additionally, CPS uses their self-invented tool of the Central Registry of child abusers and other techniques to get parents to admit to a false crime in order to get their children back. This is done after the children have been removed and is used as a levering technique to justify, after-the-fact, that their removal of the children was a correct action. Parents are actually blackmailed, brow-beaten and coerced with threats of serious action against them in order for them to get their children back.  Usually, children will remain in the system for two years before they are returned.  In the case of foster parents adopting a child whose birth parents’ rights have already been terminated, the children are never returned!  This hurts our children!

By cleverly keeping child abuse accusations out of the criminal realm, by circumventing our already-established criminal and law-enforcement system, except for CPS’s self-created state Central Registry, CPS is able to persecute citizens in the name of being a parent. Parents are faced with results of being criminally prosecuted with no criminal due process of law provided.  This includes financial devastation in fighting false allegations, ruining of reputations and relations with family and friends, inability to obtain a caregiver or other job because of a “record” on the state Central Registry.  This is a permanent record, never to be removed.   CPS personnel, themselves, enjoy immunity to any legal prosecution or lawsuit that may occur from their actions! As a result, CPS personnel feel free to indulge in outrageous acts that include the falsification of records, lying, interrogating children, threatening others with persecution in order to further the end goal of having parents guilty of child abuse in order to gain money.


In the above persecution of Foster Parents, It Is  Our Children (America’s Future) who ultimately suffer the most horribly.

The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. *Changed by section 1 of the 26th amendment......(end excerpts)



Why when you want to adopt does the agencies turn on the foster parents? In Canada and in the US . Our friends from Washington state have had a very similar situation to ours. It was all right for us to foster but as soon as we said the word adoption the agencies turned on us. Slandering our names. First they tried scare tactics to scare us from adopting when we insisted that we wanted to adopt they set us up with false allegations. When that failed we tried to switch agencies and our name was slandered and the other agency dropped us before we got started. Then our agency took our little girl. They have slandered our name stopping us from getting her back. We are still fighting and pray that the right people will listen and hear the truth and return our little girl.


We were in the process of adopting a large sibling set of wonderful kids.  Two weeks before the adoption was to be finalized, they were taken away.  My husband was falsely accused of “sexual abuse” and myself with “neglect.”  The charges were found to be “unsubstantiated” but we are still not able to have our children back for adoption.  We are not allowed any contact nor communication with them, whatsoever.  The children call and want to come home.  In a letter from CPS attorney, we are told we are considered guilty, but they just cannot prove it.  Why are CPS workers allowed their Machiavellian operations wherein the end justifies any means.  Means include lying, falsification of records, false accusations, removing children, horrific interrogations with CPS secret police under the guise of “investigation.”

My Vision~~Families Raise Families--NOT Laws

  • There are too many children in this world who are in loving foster homes and other situations where love and great surroundings should be a factor and these are not always looked at before decisions are made. -CA

  • I have seen my very sober and hardworking friend go through this. she is a grandma but wants to take charge of her daughter's daughter... however the CPS just came to the house, grabbed the child and found all kinds of excuses to anyway take the child. now she is accused of being insensitive, a drug addict (absolutely untrue) and she has to prove that she is not all of that. very sad that a child is the victim in all of this. Wonder whats the agenda for CPS to take such an interest!!

    My husband and I have been Falsely Accused by the Child Welfare System when wanting to raise our own child. Foster parents should NOT foster to adopt, but should veiw their role as to help the child be reunited with his or her natural family. For people who want to adopt children, there are plenty of orphans and abandoned children both here and abroad to adopt. There is no need to take children away from loving families. -CA

  • The Child Protection System, originally established to protect endangered children, has gone completely "out of control". It is time that they are shut down and reorganized and "MADE" to operate within the Constitutional laws of the United States. Until this happens the American family is in danger of becoming "extinct" and the children in this nation are "at risk" of becoming "legal orphans" with the system as their parents. Does this sound like Germany's children in the WWII era? If so, it's time to STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!!!! And protect our nation's children from Child Protection's legalized "child abuse" and "adult abuse". STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE NOW...EVEN IF YOU STAND ALONE!!! NC-CA

  • i have bin a foster mom 21 years and i was not accused but a child was taken away from me because of my ex husband and his g/f telling lies to hurt me because he has her with him, my agency stood by me all the way stating how the child was remove was wrong and the reasons where wrong, they trusted me as much to place 3 more children in my home. I think its time for the goverment to take a good look and how Foster Parents r beening treated. JV-Canada

  • I have been a foster parent for 8 months and helped 31 children, including ones with cerebral palsy and severe failure-to-thrive and directly from therapeutic homes. After I hired an attorney to help one child who they asked me to adopt and then decided to return to the dangerous situation she came from, the retaliation from DCF started. At 5:05 on a Friday night, they removed foster children from my home saying that the 2-year-old's clothes weren't clean at daycare and that he had insect bites on his arm! I'm now fighting for my License and the 7-month-old baby they removed that they had asked me to adopt. I haven't been able to find an attorney yet. I'm scared and my family and I are heartbroken and worried for the children. DB-FL

  • Foster parents and bio-parents are both at severe risks at the hands of unregulated child protective service providers. DW-OH
