Standing in the Wake of Corruption
Make No Mistake.   CPS Operations are Rotten to the Core

There seem to be no exceptions.  In every state, with every case, the underhanded operations are the same.  We have found this out in our group by exchanging information and stories.  Over the years, similarities have been noted.  What it amounts to is pure corruption.  The following is a set of video clips presented by a Kentucky investigative news team.

You will see an actual kangaroo court hearing where a woman’s child is taken away in 17 minutes with no proof on CPS’s part presented.  This woman dared to obtain an attorney.  CPS went into action and started retaliating by removing the children from 14 family members.  Unbelievably, the retaliation then extended to her attorney.  CPS removed her attorney’s adopted baby!

In 1996 and 1997, the Children's Bureau funded 10 demonstration projects to address the prevention, intervention, and treatment needs of neglected children and their families. These projects implemented and evaluated a wide variety of service strategies with large numbers of high-risk children and families. The programs varied considerably in terms of theoretical model (psychosocial or ecological), target population, location (in-home or out-of-home), duration, and intensity. The projects provided a great variety of services, including parent education and support, home visits, and referrals to other resources or services in the community. (For information about the programmatic aspects of these projects, see ...

We have found that usually reasonable efforts according to the following are a sham.  Children in the System is what brings in money.

Reasonable efforts refer to efforts made by State social services agencies to provide the assistance and services needed to preserve and reunify families. Laws in all States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico require the provision of services that will assist families in remedying the conditions that brought the child and family into the child welfare system. The statutes in most States, however, use a broad definition of what constitutes reasonable efforts. Some commonly used terms associated with reasonable efforts include "family reunification," "family preservation," "family support," and "preventive services."

The provisions of the Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) intended to promote the safety, permanency, and well-being of children will have a significant impact on child welfare practice. ASFA requires state child welfare agencies to engage parents early in the process, redesign service delivery to achieve permanency goals for children, ensure sufficient resources for families, and partner with the courts. This guide provides a framework for redesigning child welfare practice. It includes an analysis of the key provisions of the Adoption and Safe Families Act and identifies casework practices that are consistent with the law. It highlights the recommendations ...

How Do They Sleep?

M, Yes, I agree, they are seeing the real abuse and deal with the
 reality of it.

Now then, on this note, since they do see the reality first hand --  should these workers not be able to indeed be experts and determine to  "some" extent what "real" abuse looks like and the aftermath of what  it results in?

To me, it would seem very easy to determine the difference between an  abused child & a happy one who is not abused. Just being a foster  parent gave me this ability. And, without the immediate "reality" of it in my face which should make the workers more qualified than  myself. As such, I say they are doing it for the money.
 

Then, take into consideration that foster parents are hand-picked with incredible background checks, and trained BY CPS and become foster  parents We become foster parents by CPS's OWN standards. Where does  it come in that 99% of foster parents are being persecuted, by them,  for child abuse? We were persecuted by the very licensor who licensed  us. How does that make any sense?

 It doesn't except that foster parents are an easy pool to prey upon.  We are there. The histories of us and our foster children are already  ~there.~   This is much easier than beating the pavement and drumming  up actual abuse cases out in the field which amounts to tons of new  paperwork, files & followup in actually "going out there."  Same bonus  money, either way.  They can go out and actually find a case or make  calls for each other on the hotline against foster parents they  already have the phone number, address, kids names, ages, etc. for.
 
CPS constantly perpetuates the myth of abusive foster care  --  themselves!   hmmm.   The only thing that could explain this is that they  are indeed using the foster parent pool as one of their legitimate  ways to catch child abusers. I ran up against the argument time &  again: "Just ~who~ would want to take on the responsibility & LOVE  other people's damaged kids?"
 
Well, with the CPS mindset here, there is no room for people who are  of high values, executing their mission & high values in the name of helping children. What about these people? Are they not, in reality,  the fabric a foster parent is made of? Instead the CPS mindset is  that we have to be ~up to something.~   That something is acting out  child abuse, wanting sex with the kids or whatever other filth they  can fabricate.

 I say there is no excuse whatsoever for CPS operations, mindsets &  viewpoints which are unrealistic & dysfunctional. It is wrong and it is  not what the laws intended serving no good purpose.   Nothing is  accomplished except to destroy families & children who are our future,  with a few child abusers being caught, to boot. And, what for? Money!
 
 I sympathize with the social worker plight in having work that  involves the worst society has to offer. It cannot but affect them in  awful ways. This should be taken into consideration with equal time  in doing work that results in a positive environment for them.  How, I  do not know.   The work ethic these days is that workers are a dime a  dozen, easily-replaced and can go if they don't like it.

This is even more reason for CPS operations to be shut down  completely. Just what good does it do for anyone who is anywhere near  it or involved with it?   An abused child is easy to spot.   Let the  police investigate it.

Love, e
