  1. No way they’d take my kids. Better call the coroner.

  2. I HATE CPS …THIS FUKIN PEOPLE ATTACK LOVING FAMILIES YET THE ONES WHO NEED TO BE HARRASS GET AWAY …TALKING ABOUT PERSONAL EXPERIENCE…🤬🤬🤬🤬

  3. CPS seems to have crap judgement…. I've heard of so many cases of inaction when there should've been immediate action and action (i.e. removing children from loving homes) when the wrong conclusion was reached with too little "evidence".

  4. CPS.
    can anybody imagine???
    imaging one day…your most valious treasure removed from your hands & turn them in to strangers??? . Imagine a single day not knowing if they are eating..if they are sleeping…if they are crying?? Can you imagine the horrific experience of the kids of not seeing the humans who GOD sent to earth to be their parents??? Can you imagine for one day…that innocent little child living with complete strangers?? away from his/her home?? from brothers and sisters?? yea. CPS many times separates siblings …HORRIBLE!!!
    The truth is CPS cause more harm then help and should not exist. I am sorry for all the pain many parents and kids have to go through for
    the many errors CPS cause.

  5. CPS AGENCY HAS CAUSE MORE DAMAGE THEN HELP OVER THE YEARS…STATE HAS NO BUSSINES REMOVING KIDS FROM THEIR PARENTS!!!! IS A HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE PARENTS GO THROUGH..TRYING TO SHOW STRANGERS THAT THEY LOVE AND CARE FOR THEIR KIDS????
    ARE THEY NUTS???
    DONT THEY SEE HOW BEAUTIFUL & HEALTHY THEIR KIDS ARE??? DONT THEY SEE HOW HAPPY THEY LOOK ON THE VIDEOS???
    CPS ARE MAKING SOOO MANY MISTAKES OVER THE YEARS…CPS REMOVE CHILDREN FROM GOOD PARENTS AND TURN THEM IN WITH EVIL FOSTER PARENTS THAT SEXUAL..MENTAL & PHYSICAL ABUSE THEM.
    MANY CHILDREN HAS BEEN KILLED IN HANDS OF WRONG STRANGERS THAT DONT LOVE THEM.
    OF COURSE THERE ALSO SOOOO MANY GOOD…EXCELLENT FOSTER PARENTS TOO BUT OVERALL
    CPS IS A NIGHTMARE FOR GOOD PARENTS.
    MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL THOSE PARENTS WHO HAVE LIVED OR LIVING THE NIGHTMARE OF CPS GIVING HER KIDS AWAY TO STRANGERS.
    TRAUMATIC LIFE EXPERIENCE FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN.
    DEAR GOD PROTECT ALL OF THEM- BRING HAPPINESS BACK TO THEIR LIVES. AMEN

  6. LOL> you come to pick up my children; better bring an entire army..

  7. That family should continue being monitored periodically by CPS, or by others (family members, friends, neighbors, etc.), even if they are innocent of any wrong-doing against their children, just in case. Child abuse should not be taken lightly. Death of a child can be the result. LOVE AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN, AND, WHEN YOU AGE, THEY WILL LOVE YOU AND TAKE CARE OF YOU, IN RETURN.🐞

  8. We need to do more to make our communities whole so we do not have so much abuse to begin with.

  9. We live in Indiana. Last year a baby was fostered by my niece. Baby's father (who is slightly developmentally disabled) picked the newborn up by her ankles and hit her against the wall, shattering her little skull. My niece took care of her for 9 months, she had a feeding tube, various injuries so she took her to the doctors every week. The pediatrician wrote a letter to CPS stating it was obvious abuse, they had witnesses how it happened, blah, blah, blah. This wasn't the only abused child in that home. State filed charges against the parents, the father's attorney sent a letter to the state claiming it was a violation of the father's rights because he has a disability. Baby and other children were sent back home by the end of the year.

  10. I feel badly for the parents but also for overworked, underpaid social workers. In many cases, a child's life is in danger and they don't act quickly enough. In this case, they acted too quickly. It's not always an easy decision to make. So glad the family is back together.

  11. That's just awful! Was the foster family investigated for the girl's facial injury and the baby's hoarse cries after their aunt picked them up?

  12. people need to start binge watching their child/ren…

  13. This happens all the time. It's how they make money. Look up Luzerne County PA CPS complaints…. ck out the movie KIDS FOR CASH. No one went to prison for the crime, only for a comment to the Press which broke a Court agreement. Also, a janitor at the court house was directing parents to proper rooms for hearings so parents could be present in rare cases when they were informed of hearing!!!
    PS ask anyone who has their kids taken away, CPS takes them to Wendy's first thing (adoption advocates)…. without asking about food allergies btw.

  14. Harris Country is disgusting!

  15. Rampant child abuse means many are presumed guilty. A no win situation.

  16. It's only a family. They don't count. Right? Isn't that what you wanted?

  17. Think if they were poor and not white, how would that play out?…

  18. Too much trauma caused by supposedly professionals, tsk, tsk tsk…
