My daughter had her kids ripped away from her by her father who claims she was using drugs. She passed every drug test and she still does not have them. He has gone so far to have her kids call them Mom and Dad. I am not even able to speak with them. Someone should look into all their cases. Corruption at it's best.
my child was removed from my home the judge ordered two visits a week for two hours because of the complete incompetence of this agency it has now been 24 days i havent seen or spoke to my child
CPS. I thought they were supposed to help children in danger.. Now I know better.. False acusations made against my daughter.. My daughter went to the office to clear her name with my grand daughter.. Unfortunately my grand daughter had took a spill the day before.. But we thought once they interview her and take a look at her they will be able to tell that she is not abused..Wrong!! The case workerwas like "Let me see her for a moment, and talk with her". She took her that moment no questions asked!! Its corrupt to say the least!!
CPS has basically done the samething to my daughter in law and son. Took their daughter for over two months before giving any written statement, there has not been any court date as of yet. They have attained a lawyer and now after two months they-CPS want to make a plan to bring her home.. WTH is going on that they can ruin a family and not be held accountable for their actions.

After my granddaughter made a false accusation, CPS did not properly investigate the charges, but put her in foster care. She has tried to refute her statement, but CPS will not allow her to do it. Her social worker has not once done what she has said she would do, and which the court has ordered her to do. The child ran away from her 3rd foster home and the caseworker has lied to us about when she left and that she would file runaway report. I am sure the caseworker does not want to make herself look bad. The court-appointed atty. and the caseworker colluded with each other regarding getting counseling (also court-ordered) for the child. The child is now missing, and I do not believe the caseworker knows where she has gone. None of the judges seem particularly interested. In these hearings, no one is allowed to speak except the CPS workers and the judges. It is a very corrupt system which is ruining our lives, and apparently the lives of many others. I believe my grandchild is nothing more than a paycheck to them, as well.
Kidnapped and held hostage do to a very corrupt system here in Grays harbor county. They have my three children separated and in different homes and they have picked my children as favorites I have physically seen my cps worker show favoritism to my boys because they are very well mannered and easy to manage. My middle child is always filthy smelling and wearing someone elses socks I've complained numerous times. My daughter is two and a half and I was upset because the foster parents took her very first haircut away from a parent that it actually matters too. The judge keeps judging me from the second time I stood before him. I have fired a court appointed attorney to keep from corruption and used 3,000 I had saved up for emergency to pay a hired attorney that has not taken my side and has misrepresented himself and his connection with judge Edwards he has misrepresented me each time and my kids are stuck in the middle. I have jumped thru the necessary hoops inorder to get my children back and still they won't budge. I have not been charged with a crime nor do I have a criminal background but yet I'm being treated as a criminal.
since when were parents unable to parent just because they have a bad back and have to take things for them?? That doesn't make me a druggy that just makes me a medical patient and at least in trying to find the best alternative then the morphine I'm prescribed now. I am a firm believer in medical marijuana as well as for here tomorrow it will be legal. I myself use it medically and not for recreational purposes but for purposes to not to have to take the morphine as much unless the marijuana isn't strong enough. I take these things because I don't want my kids watching me be bound to my bed in pain and unable to get up and go places and interact with them. I don't prescribe myself these things is what they are not understanding and expect me to not be upset at what they have and are still doing to year our little family apart. I have tears now and this isn't the half of it trust me but it hurts today my visits were suspended the casa told me she was going to let the judge know that I was helpful in getting the children out of the situation and cooperative but she went in there and blew a whole different tune and requested suspension. I have the text message to prove it. These people are supposed to be civil workers and they haven't been civil with me since day one.
I am noticing a very rigid pattern in DCFS action taking children in WA State. Apparently the Prosecution, Attorney General, The "assigned" DSHS Public Defender, contracted treatment facilities Local Law Enforcement and Health facilitators have continued to violate thinking that they are untouchable or invincible. THE REAL ISSUE IS THAT THESE Headhunter's believe that they can conform the stolen child, taken at any age, and build a ingenuous LEADER. Taking unwarranted gratitude insisting that they "save children" How they sleep at night is beyond me. What i'm afraid of is predicting the out come for these abandond kids! What they are doing is causing generations to manifest built on Hate,mistrust, lost soles. PROMOTING DRUG ADDICTION AND CRIMINAL MINDED, UNTRUSTWORTHY& AFRAID ADULTS. PLEEEEEEESE HELP. Region 4 has got to be stopped. (Please send out of state ombudsman to audit wa WA State agencies!Because our very own Ombudsman and internal affairs are part of the conspiracy! Please give the indigent Parents an attorney to appeal or ask that the state show cause. Please don't forget these children
They really need to investigate all the dcfs agency's a lot of hear say evidence is being used and a lot of lies in the courts by these people just so they can make money from the government off our children, there is no family reunification just the destroying of the family life and it needs to end right now!!!!
DCFS can not find anything but they tried to file independent for my child
They took my kids .. And now they are really being neglected. I've made complaints and they keep ignoring me. My daughter 4 yrs old has never had head lice. Well now that they have her. She's had them for a yr. I've told them in so many ways that I'm willing to clean her hair and they ignore me. The want to shave her head. I've left messages with supervisors and they never reply. There's so many things I can write about each one of my kidS but I'd be here all nite . I'm going crazy because no one wants to help me. I've tried ending my life because it brakes my heart too see what's going on and I can't do anything about it. Please help me or any info that you can provide would help. Thanks..bless yo heart.

I called CPS on MYSELF after I relapsed and couldn't meet my sons basic needs. I have done everything CPS has asked. They still are denying me my son. This is a disgrace and is only harming our babies and us good parents. Something must be done.
"We are sick of stomachs turning,
We are sick of dying slow,
we are sick of sacrificing,
all the children you hold low..."
My daughter was removed from us as her parents on may 16, 2014. I have ask numerous time to have my paper work and drug test results and been denied to have them, on June 5, 2014 we went to court were the judge said she takes delute negative urine test as a positive, for what?? I had a friend who talk to the cps investigator who straight up told her they had nothing on me, then my neighbor who is a retired from Smith county sheriff department and he told me the same thing "nothing on me"!!... plus before those people told me that the next the Tuesday after we went to court, i went to a lawyer who looked my case up, his words were, i can't find anything on you he then said all he is seeing is obviously... you have ****ed somebody off meaning CPS, and now they are punishing you i said not just me, my daughter, his words then were they don't care about your child she is a check.

Plz help they have my babys my world and i cant do nothing
I am a victim of the colville cps office! Something needs to be done here! We are not all just a bunch of angry parents.
Colville CPS are criminals. Sylvia Glover the attorney for Colville CPS is a power hungry monster and threatens and intimidates good parents into losing their children forever. Wendi Andres in CASA is the most twisted, horrible liar whose sole purpose is to punish parents and children. She stood up and lied in court that my child is doing great in foster care, better than in my care when I'm not even charged with abuse, when my child has had numerous injuries in foster care and the foster parents were accused by a foster child of physical and sexual abuse, rape, neglect, and the foster parents were never investigated. And guess what? My child is still in their care. I've been requesting family placement for over 6 months now and my child is still in foster care. WENDI ANDRES in CASA has her own personal vendetta and would rather see innocent children needlessly suffer without the love of good parents! WENDI is so sick in her head that she openly states that she thinks young girls who dress inappropriately and show their boobs are "so beautiful". She has some problems upstairs, is inappropriate, and is a disgusting and sick woman who gets away with blatantly lying in court to the judge. My young child has never been hurt at home and has never suffered injuries like the ones obtained in foster care. WENDI ANDRES does not protect children - shame on CASA and shame on CPS! Mortgaging our children's backs! In foster care my child had a giant black eye and a scratch from the eye down to the chin! And had another injury on the chin only a couple of weeks later! Has been sun burnt numerous times because the foster parents don't care about my child! My child plays with spittle like an infant and eats like a starved animal, is traumatized, and is at a stand still educationally, and my child now makes inappropriate noises like an infant due to being traumatized! It's heartbreaking to watch, even more heartbreaking to know that CASA and CPS is sick enough to think that's best for my child! CPS stole my baby right out of school, I got no warning, even after two CLEAR police reports because they kept sending the police out to my house! The police kept saying that there was nothing wrong and so CPS stole my baby right out of school! I thought that since the police said everything was perfectly fine - I even obtained those records - we would be fine and CPS would get out of my hair. NOT THE CASE! No family is safe from these MONSTERS! Take your babies and run to Canada! Our government has failed us! AMERICA, LAND OF THE ENSLAVED! Colville - small town huge court house! MY BABY WANTS TO COME HOME! I finished all of my ridiculous services and peed in a cup like a criminal for over a half of a year and my baby is still being abused by the system away from his mom! This is sick, wrong, and unjust! I feel like a big dumb animal being poked through the ribs with sticks while being taunted and laughed at while my innocent child is being dangled in front of my face. How
I was placed in a foster home when I was 7 and I was sexually abused there now wi have post traumatic stress disjorder and many other things I wanna sue but I do no were to start please help
I had cps get involved after one of my children got mad at me for paddling his butt and said I abused him. The case worker came by, I cooperated with him. The case worker said he would setup another interview within 2-103someone weeks and I never heard from him again. I had even tried calling him about 5 times in regards to the counselor not wanting to put him in counseling and he never returned my calls. I never heard back from anyone at cps and then received a letter stating I was founded on the abuse. The case worker had transferred to another office during this time and closed the case just before he left. I talked to the supervisor about it and he doesn't know why this happened. He said he couldn't do anything for me. I am appealing this decision. I also was working as a caregiver and due to this lost my job. I was also going to school for my RN. I have a friend who is calling up the state attorney general actually. Apparently what they did was wrong. I still have all my kids and they never even took me to court over anything and have absolutely no evidence against me. They never called anyone they said they would. They talked to the school staff, whom have known me since I was 10, and they had nothing but good things to say about me. They even talked to my other son who is a couple years older than the other one and he told them what happened and was right there when it happened and they still decided to go with what the one said. How is it even right for them to take the word of one kid when the other said different? With the help of my friend I'm gonna be putting the Stevens county cps in the spotlight for doing things wrong and not following protocol. They drug my name through the dirt without a stitch of evidence and I lost my livelihood for my kids.

Abolish this agency please do us all good parents a favor we don't deserve to get our children taken away because dcfs is committing federal fraud and trying to get money.
Abolish this agency!
Abolish this criminal agency.
CPS (Child Parent Separators), needs to be dismantled.
It may have had good intent years back, but, that time has past.
This is an outrage in America!
In Illinois the Department of Children and Family Services is a despicable joke! My son who is now almost 16 was repeatedly molested by his father when he was approximately 6-9 years old. He has tried to commit suicide 3 times now. But while hospitalized with the 1st attempt he told hospital staff about the sexual abuse, DCFS did not go to the hospital or make any contact with him or with me regarding the information that the hospital called them with. I had to take my son to the Rolling Meadows Police Station upon discharge from the hospital.
The DCFS had him interviewed at the Children's Advocacy Center and were putting a safety plan in effect to protect his sister(my daughter)who is still with the molester. My son suffers daily, he had made very bad choices for the last two year because he doesn't think anyone believe him. He believe that his father doesn't have to abide by any laws and that he is himself is for lack of a better word...My son feels insignificant. HE IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT! My son suffers from bipolar, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. His flashbacks of the abuse are so vivid that he at times can tell you what the weather was outside during the abuse. I was told by the Rolling Meadows Police that because my ex-husband and I have a past that they were less likely to believe what my son was coming forward with! The detectives also told me that they are so good at their jobs that 90% of the time they can get 'these guys' to admit what they have done.(WOW...REALLY?). And, the only thing my ex-husband would admit to doing was breaking our son's arm in a drunk'n rage...Yes he broke our son's are when this poor young child was 7 years old. That was the beginning of the behavioral issues and the sexual abuse was already happening. (yes he was indicated...he was never put in the Central Registry and he coached various teams and never got a slap on the hand. However, he still got custody and was able to continue with the abuse). As I said DCFS is a despicable joke!
The investigator for the department told me she was not indicating my son's father for the sexual abuse because my son had been watching videos and had experimented sexually. All of these things are TEXT BOOK of children that have suffered sexual abuse. She also tried to turn it around and tried to charge my son for the sexual experimentation. (as a sexual abuse)... These boys were friends...and while they were watching these videos and experimenting the so called parent was home...What was he doing? Apparently not parenting!
MY SON AND ALL OF THESE CHILDREN DESERVE JUSTICE. My son has been treated like criminal throughout this whole thing. Basically told in so many words (as was I) that he was lying. I will be perfectly honest with you; thirteen year old boys don't come forward with this type of information unless it is true. It is uncomfortable, embarrassing and not something that they want their friends and family members to know about unless it is TRUE!!
I will advocate
My 4 children were taken I was founded and i agree i abused my one son who has many issues i gave up at birth and regained custody of after he had been damaged.My other 3 children have also been kept in care four 4 years, we were deeply connected to and bonded with. I have spent these years healing myself and learning to be the best parent these children need, doing every service they ask of me, they continue to drag this on my children act out after our visits, while in their current foster home the mother has been arrested twice with my children in her care is now being investigated by dcfs for spanking, and verbally injuring my kids, and no matter how much my kids beg to come home and say they fear these foster parents, dcfs leaves them in this home stating my kids are acting out because we show no structure, this is insane! I pray for justice and advocacy to reunite families, my kids are suffering!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in my beliefs I feel that the way this service is being run is not I repeat not a family service as it was when it first came to be it was designed to help families to become stronger now all it does is weaken them to the point where one or both parents will end up on Americas Most wanted
I myself have requested just copies pertaining to investigations and calls to social workers in the past and present without receiving a response in paper or by phone calls from two different offices. One of my own county, and the other in Walla Walla County. My children are left alone in the middle of the night on school nights from around 9pm until almost 3:00 in the morning while my ex goes and drinks at the bar instead of tending to the needs of our eldest who is only 14. our second son started a fire the last time she left them alone in the middle of the night to go and see a boyfriend of hers, and the fire caused 3rd degree burns on a child she had with the boyfriend after me. She lost custody of that child. Why do you side with just one gender and alienate the other parent? My son is at his wits end and it is emotionally abusive and academically hindering! Please stop this nonsense, or give the children to the other parent who cares about their children!
I am a civil rights advocate by profession. I have witnessed first hand what you are talking about with my clients.
CPS Kept my daughter in protective custody for 11 days with NO HEARING... released her back to the accused abuser and sent me a letter saying unfounded against me.. WOW.. REALLY?.. NOT even investigating the accused abuser at all even though my child was COVERED in bruises and could not tell anyone what happened as she is Disabled and NON verbal. What a Shame that the people put in place to protect our children are FAILING horribly and allowing them to Fall through the cracks.. They seriously do not have it together. they are way past corrupt!.. they are downright Sickening to the core!!!

CPS kidnapped my son.
The system is corrupt, poorly reviewed, and there is little to no accountability. The actions of many caseworkers amounts to nothing less than child trafficking for profit. There needs to be a serious objective investigation as to whether the current policies and processes of DCFS are in the best interest of the children.
I can't even begin to explain how evil these people who have control over everyone, including the judge, at mount vernon childrens administration and dcfs truly are. I will never understand them it is so beyond my capability that i will never be the same
Was sold into slavery by WA State I have been beaten starved neglected abused in all forms. I have even been removed from abusive foster homes. My case worker put us on commercials on TV and radio with no compensation. WA state needs to be held accountable.
