I was not notified in writing regarding the investigation and the outcomes. I was not informed of scheduled meetings by social workers but my ex husband and guardian ad litem were. My parental rights were denied without my knowledge.
My 2 children madillyn and nickolus ward were ripped from my arms 3 years ago and because they took them I lost my place cause I was on state welfare at the time . now they want to take my rights away ! I can't afford a lawyer and if I could my babies would be with me I have a foot or two high of just proof of their lies to take my children and them changing reason from court date to court date having falsified information. My family has been put through hell and ripped to shred by Washington state CPS ! I may not have a bunch of money but I am an excellent mother and I can take care of and love my children like no one else could ever.... They are my everything and its sad to know that to be the mother I know I am and to have the right to raise my two kids I conceived I have to be rich!! Trying to deal with this has been a horrible nightmare . how is this ok? How is this justice?

I cry every night and pray to god my babies are ok...
All I do is investigate and support families .
Back in Oct my husband physically assaulted my 14 yr old daughter he was arrested then cps came and took my children all 5 of them stating I failed to protect mind you I told my son to call the police. I am now in a dependency and my children have been in cps custody for months they are lying to my children confusing my children bouncing them from home to home my husband is not living with me and my children are is serious mental and psychological distress. I am doing all services provided to me and in the referrals the cps worker is not including all information and or putting it in her own words. I thought Washington law states 50 try and offer services to prevent out of home care that was not offered to me. And Washington law also states for the child to be in stable most home like environment. Cps is stripping us of our support etc something has got to be done. I pray that I will be contacted so hopefully me and my children can get justice. Mine and my children's civil rights have been severely violated.
I am also a victim/ survivor from the abuse and hate from the people of Washington state, But as I learned to not of been the only one , And I wish to stand against the fight for our rights,
Last month, my daughter, who has several mental deficiencies, claimed child abuse. One of her disorders is what is known as reactive attachment disorder. This is just an awful mental disorder that can break an adoptive mother clear down to her soul. http://www.childrenintherapy.org/attachmentdisorder.html
Two of things she has mastered in her 14 years is manipulation and triangulation. She uses it well and has convinced several others that she has been abused and how to the point that she has even convinced some that they have seen it! She asked a neighbor, who was watching her because she was suspended from school and her father and I had to work, that she needed to be taken to the DCFS office. They then wait for 24 hours and show up at my sisters house to question her more "extensively" and take "pictures of her injuries". Mind you that she had been out of my care for the most part of 3 days and the "injuries were redness on her cheeks from slapping and a red scratch that they are claiming is a scratch from my nails". Both of which have been proven by her medical history of allergies to basically all plant life and she had been outside the day prior to the photos, pulling weeds. On that evening, our home was invaded by DCFS and the police. They said that if our children weren't taken from our home by family, they would take them and I would be arrested. I called my sister and she came to get the kids. I was not told that I couldn't be around them, just not that night. After my kids left with my sister, the officer and the DCFS worker left my front room with me in tears, my husband walked out front with them. The officer said to my husband that she had "enough evidence" to arrest me at that time. However, they didn't, until 2 days later and the officer came over after we had come home from church and she cuffed me in front of my younger children! All the while the DCFS worker was telling me how misunderstood my R.A.D. daughter is and I needed some help. The witnesses that DCFS has haven't been in my home in 2+ years, people that I had found were verbally and physically abusive to my children and they are claiming I was the abuser as a way to get back at me. DCFS has drug the case out, after a month of my younger two with me, they decided that I was "a danger" to them and removed them from our home. A week later, they gave them back to me, along with having to BCI my family so that they can babysit me so that I don't hit my younger two. That was a month ago! DCFS is telling the judge that I keep saying that I didn't do what I am accused of and "refusing all offers to follow their suggestions to get help." I have been railroaded by DCFS and the police department. The judge takes everything they say as gospel and hasn't even asked for one shred of proof! DCFS in Utah is way above the law at this point. They need to be taken back down a few dozen notches.
every day there are family's all over the united states fighting wrong accusations against them on a daily basis and it is tearing apart our nation, my family, your family, our neighbors family, we are the foundation of this nation and yet people like C.P.S and D.S.H.S and so on are deter mend to walk into the homes of family's with needs, rip away their children, lie about them, discredit them and then tell them they have to jump through poodle hoops to get anywhere, so the people do just to have them turn around and say sorry your still not good enough, and when they run out of answers they drudge up new charges. if we do not act now not only our family's and friends are in danger but our children will be forever scared.

my Husband and I are just one set of parents fighting this right now, I know there are many children out there that are abused, harmed, and treated wrongly, but when you have an all intense purposes great dad and great mom that do all they can to take care of and protect their children run into a disaster and need help but instead of helping them solve a problem they take their kids and refuse to give help, refuse to work out the issues or problems and refuse to even read the facts. we need to fight the system, we need to make them do their part, and I can give a lot of facts to a case right now that is being tossed aside and the facts are being ignored even. so much so that the woman involved in this case even stated...( no I have not read any of the information that has been submitted or provided, I am typing up a recommendation that you will not know anything about till march 5th 2015 and no i haven't read anything yet but ill get around to it. ) another worker stated and I quote...( i am trying to find out more information on an accusation that a foster parent has made against the parents she has never met or seen, and even though i am not supposed to talk to you without your lawyer present I am here to talk to you anyway) and another worker...stated in front of witnesses.and I quote ( I am taking your daughter from you because it is clear from the color of her skin that you are not her biological parent, you are not guilty of anything, you are not in trouble, but since your a step parent clearly you have no rights even if you have raised this child since she was 5 months old for the last 4 years) another social worker allowed a 10 year old little girl who had been abused and traumatized by her birth mother who a restraining order was in effect that the birth mother was to have no contact with said child till the child was 13 years of age or older to have not only a phone call but a Skype video phone call. and stated in their own words....( Idaho state law means nothing to us here, Idaho state law doesn't matter here, we do not care what laws are in effect to protect this child, since we took the child from the parent those laws no longer apply. ) now after reading all of this, and seeing this, I can also tell you that
I have been falsely accused by CPS for a while I have not been able to get a job and that's not right I was never charged for what they accuse me of doing and I'm not going to run away from it and I'm not going to give up can't get a job it's hard to find a decent job with what has been written on my background.I don't know what to do about this false accusation on my background check and I'm looking for an attorney to investigate and take on my case.
My family has also been victimized by the CPS, DCFS, and the AZ Attorney Generals Office, Juvenile Court Judge, and Attorney assigned to Represent. I have also vowed to make this a lifelong goal to make sure accountability and transparency prevail. I do not want innocent children and families emotionally and financially destroyed by the abuse of powers that mine has suffered.

CPS. C/Y take your pick have made them selves above the law, if any one did the same things that they do we would already be in jail, this is a agency out of control and can not police them selves, they MUST be investigated by an agency that has no ties to CPS, and then you will see the cruption big time, it's all about money
This is happening in the State of Oregon too. DCFS trampled through my life over one decade ago. The law that Clinton passed in 1997 allows state agencies to collect money for each child they adopt out. Corrupt people within DCFS use that law, and their secret court proceedings to remove children from their families, so they can collect government funds for these stolen children. This is a real problem and we are all heartbroken. Please stop this!
I'M REALLY SORRY FOR EVERYONE'S LOSSES. I HAVE BEEN THROUGH THE CPS SYSTEM I LOST ONE CHILD TO THE STATE AND A LOCAL WHOM WANTED MY BABY GIRL AND MIND YOU I DID A VOLUNTARY PLACEMENT WITH THIS UNNAMED FAMILY THAT I HAVE KNOWN FOR YEARS. SHE GOT THE COURTS WHERE SHE WANTED THEN LEFT HER HUSBAND TO BE WITH MY OLDER CHILDREN'S FATHER WHOM NO LONGER ALLOWS ME TO SEE OUR CHILDREN BECAUSE SHE LIVES THERE WITH MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTER AND NOW WAIT THE STATE IS GOING TO ALLOW HER TO ADOPT MY DAUGHTER THAT IS STILL WAITING TO BE IN A STABLE HOME AND ENVIRONMENT BUT I COULDN'T HAVE HER BECAUSE OF MY PAST RELATIONSHIP WITH HER FATHER THAT I HAVEN'T BEEN WITH OVER 2 YRS AND SHE ONLY 2 AND HALF YRS OLD. I WAS THREATENED WITH TERMINATION OF MY PARENTAL RIGHTS SINCE SHE WAS 4MOS OLD I GOT DOGGED AROUND TO THE EXTENT OF "WITNESSES" ON THE STAND EYES CLOSED FACE POINTED TO CEILING AND STATING THEY DON'T REMEMBER AND DO WE WANNA GET INTO THE DAY MY CASEWORKER CALLED ME AFTER BUSINESS HRS AND ABOUT 2HRS BEFORE MY FIRST OVERNIGHT WAS SUPPOSE TO START TO OVERRIDE THE JUDGES RULING OF OVERNIGHTS JUST 2 DAYS PRIOR ? YES, I REPORTED IT TO OLYMPIA ALL THEY HAD TO SAY WAS WHY DIDN'T YOU START YOUR OVERNIGHTS? I TOLD THEM BUT OF COURSE IT WASN'T IN MY FILE AND YES I REPORTED IT TO MY COURT APPOINTED ATTORNEY AND SHE STATED THAT'S TOTALLY OK FOR A CASEWORKER TO DO.

King County CPS is corrupt and I still suffer from PTSD years after they hurt my family.
Myself and my 2 younger sisters from price utah. Have been and dcfs case and pasts and past family history against each other. Dcfs and the juvinile judge (scott johanso) cut us down. Took all 3 of our kids. Completly distroyed our families and many more. Please help.
"I live in north Dakota currently, but my nightmarish encounter with CPS occurred in Pierce County Washington . I am joining the thousands across our nation to ask that you investigate the SOCIAL SERVICE CHILDRENS DIVISIONS in our country. I have witnessed the lies and corruption that now exists because of grant money each states receives . This money has bought the system designed to HELP and PROTECT children and families. The laws that govern this process are up to the interpretation of the workers within that system and therein the problem lies. These people have no business destroying families based on their opinions. Civil and Constitutional Rights are violated as routine practice. In addition, they target families of low income and minimal education on the nature of the proceedings. We ask that you investigate them and help protect this nations children who have the right to be with their biological family who will love them as only blood relations can. Our children deserve the respect and attention we are pleading for. We reject the exploitation our kids suffer in silence while providing salaries for those that take them through title V and IV funding which provides the motivation and incentive for them to be taken. In the name of my child and the thousands across the nation, I send this plea to you.CPS needs a reform... Another idea is they should h just like the police officers. It would protect them from false accusations and it would protect us from false accusations and encounters with them illegal encounters with them.all I know is we the people think that something needs to be done. NBC News has already decided to investigate this nationwide and we are working on getting many others to investigate as well. It is wrong what is happening to the people and more wrong what is happening to I hope you can find it in your heart to at least compose an investigation because I feel very confident that if you even a little bit the evidence that would surface would be enough to pass some sort of a new law or cause a very much needed reform CPS. I thank you for taking the time to read my concern... Sincerely amber Smithlin
Price Utah...they have tore my familys hard work apart myself n my 2 sister lost r kids within one yr that's 7kids when does it stop
We have 2 grandchildren that have been moved 15 times during the oldest 7 years of life. From car, to rat infested campers, Rv ' s. Mom noew admitting to using meth since 10 years old, has a 3 year old as well who tested positive for pot when she was born. Grandparents have NO rights in this state. I could not take our grandchildren to the er to have her tested for drugs after I had done a home kit which was positive for not only pot, but for opiates also. Little did I know then I should have call the police. Further more mom's sucide attempt's and threats gave us concern because she has attempted to cut her wrist while the little one was in the car seat. Yet all parents are actively using meth, herion, receiving state money. Good stamps which are sold for cash for buy drugs. The poor children are forced to have a 2 hr visit a week per parent. The children are.pulled out of school transported almost an hour away, never knowing if parents are going to show. When they do show every time they are high. I personally think absolutely NOT ONE ACCOMMODATION FOR PARENTS VISITS UNTIL AFTER THEY COMPLETE a drug program and PROVE, their success
Then and on then should they get a visit but NOT interrupting t he child's education.
The urine test that is used isn't valid. A hair test should be used you can't trick a hair test
There is a whole lot more to this story. Being told by the depury director of cps to file a nonparental custody costing a few thousand dollars. Only to be denied so the parents can get more free services, including attorney, yet they have had several month to take the first step and haven't done so. And the kids have to be pulled 2 times a week, missed education, after school activities, just bring s normal kid is impossible due to the fact the parents care only that they get their visit (the law says the parents get that visit as well) cause it make the parents feel good. Kids get home feeling exhausted, frustrated, meltdowns. How is it criminals get the re wards yes the kids needing the help and protection fall through some mighty big holes and no wonder foster kids drop.out of school. Walk down the very path that their on parents walked down. Something needs to be done, and done NOW
Grandparents should have somerights, parents should NOT be allowed visits until treatment and consistent follow up hair testing is done. Those visits should NOT happen during school hours. NO child left behind obviously is not considered.
second time i signed this. first time i recieved a response from senator patty murray's office requesting more information and release of information concent, then i recieved an e mail saying go to my state legislature instead. i am about to do that. anyone know anyone else we can contact to look into what is going on in washington state? i continue to fight any way i have to.
What to do if a Doctor reported us to CPS in washington state for neglect he sent us to childrens hospital they said the doctor had no right under mandatory reporting this mater of a slight flat spot in his head is not a neglect and the CPS put it as unfounded. (not neglect) but now me and my wife are on the national reporting list as had CPS filed on us but unfounded. Now my wife cant work no were in here career of in home care certified because you cant work in her field with that reporting the Doctor childrens hospital said this is not a neglect or abuse case by criteria We don't know what we need to have this removed from nation data base so she can work she has to pay off loans for over $100.000 school loans and cant work in the fields with hospitals or in home care CPS said they don't care it can stay there they wont help or deal with this its a legal issue I need to take them to court I cant afford this I am on SSI and my wife cant work right now till this matter is taken care of according to the CPS reporting rules and laws this is not a CPS problem that it was false CPS reporting on the Doctors part, but they don't deal with that legal part either I am stuck with no income from wife but she cant work either with the degree she spent 5 yr. obtaining.
CPS in Pend Oreille County uses a different Judge, one of only three, every time they present a case and "act" like they have no idea why they are there... Attorney General, knows about said lies, has not lost a case in 18 years and is a co-conspirator to the monarchy of child stealing in this state; by playing "dumb"...

A lie is a lie, and the lie should be punished!!! Prison for all involved with CPS even the Judges!!!
awaiting hellfire and brimstone as it ill be a vacation as to the DCFS tourture that my family is and has been going through for over 2 years now. We have been compliance with all orders for the whole time and because of my childrens "behaviors" in foster care we seem to not be able to ever get them back. These people need to be held accountable for their actions or lack of actions at all times.

Our 5 yr old was ripped away from us after her oldest sister was killed in a car accident 12/2000.
The case is still considered "unfounded". Our family could not afford an attorney, we had just buried our 15 yr old daughter! They CPS worker served papers to my husband and I three days after the funeral, we buried Jennifer on a Friday. Monday morning CPS kidnapped and sold our baby Kaitlyn. Why? We found out....because they could. Our little kaity bird is 18 now, engaged to be married to what seems like a good guy, but her father and I wont be at thier wedding, she was told horrible lies, from the age of 5. So many times the lies are now her memories. When she writes these things on facebook about us, I die inside, Nothing she says ever happened, she doesn't even remember me,or her dad, We are still married after 19 years, Against all odds, we still have a daughter,our middle child Heather, at home with us each day and I thank God for that each morning I wake. She moved back with us, she had left the father of her two children after years of his abuse. She needs the strength we can give her as she now fights CPS for her children. After many many hospital records, pictures, witnesses, and considering the 63 times hes been to jail....they gave him custody, hes 36, he]s never had a job, ever one day in his life! He receives ssi because hes certified 51-50 on g.d. paper everyone!! I will fight these people for our children even if its too late for my little girl, its not for Heathers little girl, or your daughter/son. United we stand, divided we fall victim to CPS and the courts who back them.
My daughter has wrongfully been taken cps proves themselves to be lieng in every point to petition to court and they still have lily please help
When I fostered my nephew in Spokane last summer the social worker Jolynn Cicilia was always late to appointments when she cared enough to show up at all in her skin tight jeans, low cut tops, and high healed boots. She came to my house 1 time in 3 months and never even checked the room he slept in. She sat in my livingroom and that was it. When I demanded an investigation she told my sister I needed to keep my nose out of places it didn't belong and an investigation "could make it hard to get her children back". What she b didn't understand is that we didn't just take her word. We are educated and know how think for ourselves!

Cps is broken, tearing apart families, and harming foster childre. Look up Bill Bowen on You Tube. More children die in the care of cps than die with their parents.
CA NOW.ORG-Member-DV Advocate-Expert on the Traumatic Effects Caused From Abuse. Women's Issues-Mothers Who Have Lost Their Children Thru Family Law Courts-CPS-Robbed of their Due Process of Law-Gagged & Silenced.
Children are not commodities. They are human beings who belong with their families. I am a mother, so I stand for the rights of parents, not soulless government agencies prone to human corruption.
Cps is a curroption here in Washington and probably in all states across America. It is a disgrace of our country to allow families to be torn apart, and give DCFS incentives for adopting out children! That is human trafficking hidden in PLAIN sight. Our children are being taken for things that are not abuse or neglect!!!! Child protective services rips children from there parents and families. CPS put our children in foster homes where statistically they are 10 greater risk for physical, sexual, and mental abuse. This is all common knowledge, use Google or you tube. Nancy Shaefer GA governor, she spoke out, search you tube. You will see the truth on cps. Also maybe a coincidence but Nancy ended up dead soon after. Ex cps investigators have come forward and told how horrible the strategies, tactics used are against innocent families. Most families that are targeted are poor, and have no means to get a lawyer. Please this is America, may I ask for this country to stand up for its families!!!! Thank you.
I think that the system is broken. My children both disabled were removed. The foster parents were allowed to take one child off her medicine against doctors orders. My other child was given milk (supplied doctor report stating they were allergic) never wore her orthodics. My one child's hair was never brushed. Even with doctor reports and school reports saying my childs issues (CPS caseworker was in doctor office and heard herself my childs issues), I was constantly told there was nothing wrong with my child and I was just making it all up. It took a year of fighting but they are back home. All this happened because my child has a language disorder and no one would listen or take the time to even really look into it. They felt they knew my children better than me.
These children have been stolen , infants are not supposed to have steroids!! Cps staff are NOT DOCTORS, the babies have been traumatized as well as the toddler. Criminal charges should be brought against the Cps workers involved. This is kidnap!
My two boys were taken by CPS. My so called social worker discriminates against me, despite documentation he still is changing dependency from home to adoption! I want my babies back, they are my children, I gave birth to them. This is despicable!
Please help return those babies to their parents! Babies need comfort and love - especially from their mother and father. How is it possible for CPS to take away babies from loving parents?l! This must place emotional strain on this beautiful family...praying there is no long-term trauma from this family's separation.
There are exemplar case workers and then there are scum. Any caseworker that would not accept the possibility of undergoing investigation should be held highly suspect.
Restore these children to their parents immediately. Arrest the CPS worker(s) involved and charge THEM with child endangerment. Fire their enabling chain of command. Enact legislation to prohibit government overrule of rational parenting decisions. Dispose of politicians who will not act to protect families from tyranny.

COME BACK WITH A WARRANT!
I truly hope there is an investigation, these children get home soon, and no long term trauma has occurred.
Having lived in Whatcom County, gone to college in Bellingham, I am horrified - This must be stopped NOW.
Unlike many who have signed this petition, I have not had any family members taken by CPS. I do not have a bias against CPS due to my own children or my loved one's children being taken away. However, I still am asking for an entire re-haul of the system. I am a counselor who works with low-income families. Many of the individuals that I see do not demonstrate the ability to care for their children. However, many of them do and they become bundled in with the others as, if all of the cases are the same. They are forced to jump through unneccessary hoops and pay unneccessary costs. They have had to quit their jobs to take care of the requirements made by CPS, yet are told they need an income to support their children. I have seen facts manipulated. I have witnessed caseworkers make MEDICAL and CLINICAL calls that they are not licensed to make. I have seen caseworkers say that the recommendations of mental health providers, chemical dependency professionals, and physicians are not valid and/or incorrect. Very unfortunately, I see children in my community that SHOULD be taken from the care of their parents and are not.
Abolish this criminal agency! My heart and prayers for all the families this agency has ripped apart. May your children be back home safe. Shame on America for letting this happen to our children, our future! Our children are being kidnapped, sold, and tortured. I am in tears from reading all these comments! Abolish this criminal agency and make every one of them held accountable for their actions and corruption. Follow the corruption all the way up the ladder!

Give her children back!!!
This makes me sick to know, just because of eczema, ONE baby, let alone all THREE are taken. CPS is doing MORE damage to this family, to the babies, to the mother, by taking them for this minor reason of eczema! RIDICULOUS!! Anyone can see how loving & caring the mother is towards her babies. CPS is now ruining this mothers time to nurse her babies. THIS is important for those babies health & for the bonding time of mother & babies. One can NOT get back this time!! Those babies NEED to be returned to the mother immediately. AND this caseworker SHOULD be fired. Trying to ACT like a "hero" where NO hero was needed!! Makes my stomach sick, to think how CPS could do SO MUCH DAMAGE & abuse to these babies & mother. YES ABUSE!! IT IS emotional & mental abuse to the babies as well as the mother. Seriously, this case worker should be fired!
We have to put a stop to this! Just because they call themselves CPS workers,does not give them the right to do things this way!
Oh my goodness I am in tears. I am a mother of a micro preemie and know firsthand the very real, physical and emotional damage that mother and newborn separation causes. The state agencies have made a horrible decision and I for one will fight on behalf of this family!! There is absolutely no justification here in taking these children. Was CPS' decision based on an actual medical examination of the child's rash? Even so, this family's rights have been violated beyond repair and I hope the state is prepared to pay for their mistake. If these children are not returned to their mother on December 2nd, my family will be protesting on their behalf. Ughhhh!!! What an awful time this momma is surely going though right now. Big hugs to this family, you are in our thoughts this Thanksgiving day.
What good reason do they have for taking these babies from their mother? Is this a free country? We need to march on the state capital and come to the aid of this family!
