i am a grandmother fighting cps for over a year now to return my grandchildren to my care! my family torn apart, my grandchildren given to strangers, who themselves have allegations against them, yet i can find NO ONE to help me! i had physical custody of two of the children at the time of cps involvement because i too was concerned over my dughters poor choices. my crime, according to cps was that i had lost my job and had no income? it didn't matter that i had been out of work since april and it was now november? it didn't matter that the children had food, shelter, clothing, medical, education and love? they claimed as soon as my unemployment started and i got other housing rather than paying weekly, i could regain custody? LIE, in march i did just that but than they decided unemployment was not enough income? they have conveniently left me out of care plan so that the court does not recognize my motions filed? they have over time cut out any visitation i was allowed to have? this just a few of the illegal acts by this government dept. i am not a lawyer but i can read and there is statutes and their own guidelines that they DO NOT follow? today, i once again am going to file a motion to have the children returned to my care. i thankfully have returned to work, i'm a nurse, and have moved into a three bedroom, two bath home. as of this date cps claims that it could take up to at least three weeks before a home study can be done to see if they would approve me? i have stressed how important it could be to return them now, since i am on christmas break, as they are and could give all my time devoted to re-bonding with them! i have tried to get help and or advice from different agencies and even recently contacted a lawyer, to no avail? if there is anyone who is willing to help me FIGHT this institution that is so obviously broken please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and help me end this nightmare!!
