How Foster Care DAMAGES Kids

By Sandra Ami

They want YOUR CHILDREN too!

http://www.geocities.com/amiablyme/Oregon_Wexler.pdf

The link above will give you some very valuable incite. If anyone with even a fragment of empathy can imagine this too can happen to them, their children, their grandchildren, nieces or nephews; these are children. Little girls that grew up with the dreams of being a mommy someday, only to later have those children ripped away. The happy little faces, the sweet little voices, the pitter-patter of tiny feet, the children taken.

Please click the link above, and read a fraction of what is going on.

The Truth!

You are not immune! This COULD HAPPEN TO YOU TOO!
This is not just a “poor peoples” problem, this happens to the upper class, the middle class, FBI agents, Attorneys.. it can happen to you too!

You don’t have to be a drug addict, you don’t have to be an alcoholic, or a stressed out parent. You don’t have to be a bad parent. This isn’t happening to just the lower-class, or just the ethnic. Look at the case with Deanna Hardwick out of Orange County,  California. Or to really see the sickness of this, look at the Gaston case out of Oregon. Those are just two cases. I could list you plenty more.

Christians are deemed “delusional” and “schizophrenic”, for believing in God.  If you have EVER seen a psychiatrist, you have “Mental Issues that prevent you from parenting your child”. If you are out of a job you are deemed to have “stressors” that prevent you from parenting your child, and you are deemed financially unable to parent your child (and if you haven’t lost your job yet, Social Services will have NO PROBLEM helping you there).  If you have ever gotten into an argument with a family member, Social Services will be happy to tell the court you have “anger management problems” which could be detrimental to the children.

Don’t think for one second, you are immune! The statistics are far to high.

If you have beautiful, sweet children,

THOSE ARE THE MOST VALUABLE
and
EASIEST TO ADOPT OUT!

Be careful, Be aware!

Audit Reflects Tragedy of Child Welfare System


By TIM TALLEY Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — A critical performance audit of the Department of Human Services says the state takes too many children from their homes, keeps them too long and rotates them among foster homes too frequently to adequately meet their needs and prepare them for adulthood.But Buddy Faye doesn’t need to read the 170-page report to understand the depth of the childhood tragedies created by Oklahoma’s child welfare system. She’s seen plenty of tragedies with her own eyes. “This is not a new problem,” said Faye, a court-appointed special advocate for abused and neglected children in Oklahoma City since 1995 who has also served on post-adjudication review boards.

“This has been going on ever since I got involved in the system,” Faye said. “It’s not like they haven’t known about this situation. They study it to death, but there’s never any meaningful change.”

But that’s exactly what state lawmakers are promising with legislation that would implement some of the 25 recommendations in the DHS audit to fix problems in the child welfare system that prevents it from improving the lives of thousands of Oklahoma children who are in DHS custody every year.

Lawmakers say the recommendations would resolve most of the allegations leveled against DHS by a federal court lawsuit filed last year on behalf of nine foster children that accuses the state of victimizing its foster children and inadequately monitoring their safety.

“Our system is broken,” said Rep. Richard Morrissette, D-Oklahoma City, a frequent critic of DHS who has called for the agency

CM8ShowAd(“336×280”);

to be broken up into three separate parts to better focus its resources on children and families.”The Department of Human Services is a mess. It’s terrible for kids,” Morrissette said. “We still have children dying. We still have children being moved around. The more we ignore the reality of this, our children are going to pay.”

Morrissette opposed the $400,000 DHS audit when it was first proposed by House Republican leaders. But he praised the reports findings and urged implementation of its recommendations.

Morrissette also called for the resignation of DHS Director Howard Hendrick, a former state senator who has received support from legislative leaders since the audit’s release.

“The present status quo is not sufficient,” Morrissette said. “Let’s rebuild this thing with a new team in place.”

A spokesman for DHS, George Johnson, declined to comment directly about Morrissette’s demand.

“We’ll be back at work Monday morning and working as hard as we can to do the people’s business,” Johnson said.

Among other things, the independent audit found that the rate of out-of-home maltreatment of children in DHS care is more than three times the national average. Over two and one-half years, about 1.2 percent of children in DHS care were being abused or neglected compared to a national standard of 0.32 percent.

“There’s all kinds of abuse,” said Faye, who said problems with the state’s child welfare system are well documented in the cases of 11 children she has worked with since they were removed from two different abusive homes.

Nine of the children have left the system after turning 18, but only one graduated from high school and none have job skills, she said. Some have been incarcerated several times and are homeless.

“Out of the 11, I have one who I hope will become a productive citizen. And she’s really struggling,” Faye said.

One girl taken into DHS custody at the age of 3 was placed in 42 different locations before aging out of the system including psychiatric placements although she had no diagnosed mental illness, just defiant behavior, Faye said.

“She was angry. She was very frustrated,” Faye said. “They were moved frequently. They didn’t maintain any placements very long. They didn’t get their educational needs met. They certainly didn’t get any independent living training.

“That’s the kind of thing that is not uncommon.”

Nationally, 70 percent of people who age out of a child welfare system do not have a high school or general equivalency diploma, she said.

The DHS audit found that the state takes children from allegedly abusive homes almost twice as much as the national average and takes too long to have them reunified.

Laurie McClanahan of Edmond experienced firsthand those problems. Her two children, now 6 and 4, were taken from her for more than three years after she said she was accused of abusing her newborn son, who had a diagnosed bowel ailment that required two surgeries.

She said DHS officials suspected her of Munchausen by proxy syndrome, a form a child abuse that involves the exaggeration of illnesses or symptoms by a primary caretaker. The diagnosis was rejected when a judge ordered her children returned to her in February.

“For three and one-half years I didn’t even have a visit,” said McClanahan, a disabled veteran. She said one son “was bounced around from foster home to foster home to foster home.

“I think I was treated horribly,” she said. “They didn’t look at the facts. They were extremely judgmental.

“I made a lot of people angry. But I’m sorry — no one is going to mess with my children.”

The DHS spokesman, Johnson, said state law prohibits the department from openly discussing child welfare matters.

The audit found that DHS does not have the full scope of legal authority granted to protective agencies in other states and some of the basic resources it needs to perform its duties.

Also, the agency attempts to control the course of events so tightly that it presents an overbearing and even disrespectful face to its own workers and clients, according to the audit.

Among the recommendations lawmakers plan to implement are removing children from their homes only if there is an imminent safety threat, being involved with law enforcement officials whenever children are removed and shifting funding from out-of-home care to in-home services for the families of children not in imminent danger.

“This is the year to do it,” Morrissette said. “This body has to have the political will to make these hard decisions.”

YOUR LIFE AND THE LIFE OF YOUR CHILDREN ARE IN JEOPARDY! NO ONE IS IMMUNE!

By Sandra Ami

Both these videos above, are not special to their area. This problem is infecting the entire country, and if one has done research as I have, will notice this is not just an American problem. Though I focus on American Families and children most. This is a disease within this country that MUST BE  STOPPED!  The only way we will be able to stop this, is by those who have not YET had their children taken.  By the time I hear from parents who are in a complete tailspin from CPS, it is almost to late. There are very important things one must know, BEFORE the knock on the door, or the phone call.

For example, when your children are FIRST TAKEN, upon your FIRST hearing in court.. you MUST file an “Answer” it’s an Answer to the allegations. The petition states:

“Your parental rights may be permanently terminated. To protect your rights, you must appear in court and answer this petition”

What most people assume, is that you must appear in court and stand before the judge and tell them what happened.. NOT TRUE.. This is HOW THEY KEEP YOUR CHILDREN!

What it really means is… FILE A PAPER  “ANSWER” in court with the Clerks office PRIOR to the court hearing, give a copy to your attorney (if you don’t have one, have a copy to give to the attorney you will be presented with) a copy to the judge, a copy to each child’s attorney, a copy to County Council, a copy for yourself, and an extra copy just in case.

The “Answer” must state the explanations to the allegations. Unfortunately, you will not even know what those are until you appear in court the first time, therefore, it’s ALWAYS BEST to file an extension, or a “continuance”, most parents do not want to do this.. because that appears longer time your children are away from you.. but trust me.. without this YOU MAY NEVER GET YOUR CHILDREN, THEY MAY (AND PROBABLY WONT) EVER SLEEP IN THEIR BEDS AGAIN! You will not be able to EVER cook them dinners, go shopping, experience the park and feeding the ducks.. your children MAY NEVER be a part of your home AGAIN.

(( keep in mind also.. on that first hearing.. Child Protective Services/ Social Services / Depart. of Human Service.. (or whatever they are going by) will request of the court that YOU BE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHILDREN AND THEY BE REINBURSED FOR WHATEVER FEES AND FUNDS THEY DECIDED TO USE FOR YOUR CHILD.. (and trust me.. they will bank that up into the HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of dollars.. you will lose your job, and you WILL  lose your homes!.. then.. they will present to the court that “YOU HAVE INADIQUITE HOUSING FOR YOUR CHILDREN, therefore they feel it is in the BEST INTEREST of the child(ren) to be PERMENANTLY PLACED either in Foster Care or UP FOR ADOPTION. .. Don’t even get into your head that you may have family to take the child(ren) because THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN (the chance is less than 20% in my opinion) It is not financially in their best interest to place the children in a home of a family member. )

For more information, or if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. If I do not have the answer, I will see what I can do to GET them for you, or guide you to where to go for them.

SOCIAL WORKERS HAVE CRIMINAL BACKROUNDS

By Sandra Ami 

ASSAULT – THEFT – PROSTITUTION – SELLING ALCOHOL TO HONORS – BURGLARY – DWI / DUI – DOMESTIC VIOLENCE –  INDECENT EXPOSURE – POSSESSION OF COCAINE AND MARIJUANA

This problem is everywhere, even as in the UK where a former social worker put a girls body into kebabs in their restaurant. These are just some of the charges against almost 400 Social Workers that are in charge of the cases against many parents that DID NOTHING to deserve their children being taken away. These are the people writing up reports against GOOD parents and families, to justify putting the children up for adoption. THESE ARE THE PEOPLE.. HIRED BY THE GOVERNMENT… TO DETERMINE THE FATE OF OUR CHILDREN.. YES OUR CHILDREN… YOURS AND MINE… You are No better and No worse than those accused. In fact, they are you.. they are just like you. Many come from wealthy families, many from poor. Many Blond haired, red haired, dark haired. Children in Baseball, Wrestling, Karate, Theater, Ballet, Dance.. the list goes on.

There is no criteria, as some may suggest, in the ‘kidnapping’ of our children. The only criteria is that they are under 18 years of age. Attorneys have had their children taken, even police have had their children taken. All on false allegations. Oh sure, I’m sure you are thinking ‘how can this be’, well I would have thought that too, until I saw how the process works. I’ve spoken to Police officers, Firemen; I’ve spoken with CPS workers (the non corrupt ones – who I might add, are BLIND) I’ve spoken to many Governmental officials, some aware of what is going on, some in complete disbelief. But I can assure you no matter which view you are looking at this system from, it is NEVER.. “IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN”. The only “best interest” is the Money brought in and paid out to the people in the positions to make the policies, and implement them. How? In the way of BONUS’. Yes.. MILLIONS of dollars in Bonus’ for your children. Oh sure, the social workers are the low man on the totem pole, and they are expendable, but they are given incentives and bonus’ too, they are trained to be careless, and heartless. Their thought process is exactly that of a Bill Collector, who has had the job for several years. Uncaring, and out for only ONE PURPOSE.. THE COMMODITY. Collecting Children, is the same as Collecting Money.

Those who do even a small bit of homework, research, investigating, will find all the same answers I do, and many other parents who have been cheated on, lied to, seen the court deceived before their eyes, and the court allowing it.. This is NOT what we grew up thinking America “the land of the Free, Home of the Brave” was all about. Free? Who’s free? The government is FREE to lie, cheat and steal away from you through deceit, coercion, to create duress, put you under distress, through THREATS of your life. Think it’s not true? Give me YOUR phone number and address, let me call CPS on you , then lets see you FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE to get your children back.

Because .. in the long run, I can promise you, though your chance is SLIGHT, you do have a chance of stearing clear. My opinion? I think you may have a 10% chance of NOT losing your children, regardless of truth, facts, or allegation. You could be the most honest person, you could have a perfect record, you could have a MILLION people standing behind you to PROVE your credability, you could have a perfect profession, and extended formal education, you could be PTA president, and you could be a Football coach, you could be anyone.. all you have to be .. is .. a parent!

THEY DON’T USE PADDYWAGONS ANYMORE, THEY DRIVE NEW SMALL SUVs

By Sandra Ami

I read the story on Alexis ( http://www.newsmakingnews.com/vm,alexis,tv,story,12,9,08.htm ) and I must tell you, if you don’t already know, this is NOT an isolated incidence. Many parents are screaming foul. Many parents are doing their homework and finding that CPS/ DHS is failing to follow the laws. The problems are not just with the social workers, but unfortunately the Public Defenders are in on it too.

I personally attempted to contact over 450 attorneys last year, those of which I got in touch with, all told me the same thing “Private attorney’s can not win in Dependency cases” One attorney told me that “it’s a Good Ol’ Boy network, and all the people in the court room are all hired by the same person, it’s an independent court administrator” He told me that even Family Attorneys are afraid to take on Dependency cases. I spoke with two seperate other attorneys who told me they had taken on a dependency case before, but would never do it again.

Once a call goes into social services about a parent, their first goal is to “adopt the child” before they even do their investigation. The problem is, it’s Big Business. Children are the commodity of the government, and specifically social services. Without the children, there is no business. So, therefore, when a call comes in.. it’s Money on the phone for them. Social workers receive bonus’, as does the department and the county. There is absolutely NO ONE working on the side of the parents.

Dr. Bruce D. Perry, did a study on the separation of children. Documenting the child’s brain growth in separate situations. He documented that the brain of a child in foster care is not much different than that of a child caged for the first 5 years of life, with no physical or emotional contact, as apposed to those children left in the homes of their families where the brain was normal.

The DHHS (department of health and human services) is, I believe, the second largest Federally Funded Organization in this country, second only to the military. And I believe I read that 54% of that funding is strictly for Taking Children and separating them from their parents. CPS / DHS cases.

Many of the Amber Alerts are parents trying to ‘steal’ back their children from the kidnappers hired by the Government. I contacted the US Department of Justice, who told me that they do not do a statistic on how many of the children Alerted are CPS/DHS cases. Though it does not take a genius to see the descriptions of the parents on the Amber Alerts are exactly parallel to the description of the parents by CPS/DHS.

Getting someone to take on these issues, has proved almost impossible by the parents who are screaming for justice, crying out for their children, and far to often burying them after the “system” has gotten a hold of them.

Parents are threatened by social workers into pleading, being told “if you do not plea, your child(ren) will go into a Foster home, where he/she/they are 7-10 times more likely to DIE” and those pleas must be done on that day, without contest. They are not even given the choice to plea Guilty, but instead must plea “No Contest”, meaning they can never attempt to reverse their plea, even by proof of the threats, coercions, duress or distress.

The entire process is created, and implemented to RAILROAD the parents into losing their children. For what you may ask? MONEY. BIG MONEY. On one estimated calculation, I approached the Board of Supervisor’s office here where I live, and was told that $113 BILLION dollars a year, JUST IN THE DETENTION of children could be accurate, and could also be underestimated.

This reminds me of the movie Oliver Twist, where children were scooped up off the streets in Paddywagons. This is really no different; the only difference is the children are taken in an unmarked newer SUV. The social workers pull with them usually 2 policemen, and still come with NO WARRANTS, as stated in our constitution. Many parents are placed with “gag orders” as to not discuss the process that is happening to them, and they are not allowed any contact with their children, as to ‘break the bond’ between parent and child, making it easier to tell the court at a later date “there is no more bond with the parents and the child has bonded with the foster parent”. There is a list of things they do, and a list of reasons why.

CPS DHHS CORRUPTION VIDEO

The corrupt system that surrounds Child Protective Services (CPS) is unbelievable.

Just when you think everything seems fine, a social worker can enter your life acting like your friend telling you that they “Will help you” when their only real intention is to take your child away and keep them.

Their deceiving schemes are perfect examples as to how they have everyone convienced they are helpers of children, however very soon afterwards you learn, they are not helpers of children, in fact, the “system” doesn’t even care about children or families. It’s the money they are after.

By them telling you to “trust” them and they are “there to help you” is only one tactic they use to try and gain your confidence in turning over your most valued and beloved treasure.  This, I can assure you, is what it looks like when a CPS worker comes to the door to take your child away.
