my little brother suffers from autism witch may cause inappropriate behavior he is six he mentioned the word penis because his friend told him that he also sweard normal six year old behavior and with his problem he cant prevent himself from saying this so they took him for no reason he has a disorder how is that inappropriate??
This is a story of Grandparents who raised a little girl for 26 months she was always very loved and well taken care of... Please check out the link above for further information
Briefly, it involves government abuse against a father who has tried to protect his children from harm.
SDPD Detective Tim Williams has been involved in years of harassment against the family of Craig Swanson. It appears he is attempting to help CPS cover up how they acted incompetently and with neglect and left his kids in a home living with a felon drug abuser who died from a drug overdose. Swanson's ex-wife made false allegations of child sexual abuse against him to distract from the injuries and the medical problems the children were having. The drug felon is Nina Karen Howard, a former Kaiser Permanente nurse who died from fentanyl overdose about a week after moving out of Swanson's ex-wife's home.
CPS refused to help. As the children's injuries and illnesses continued both before and after Nina Karen Howard's death (he did not learn of her death until half a year later), Swanson filed a complaint against CPS.
It was investigated County of San Diego staff and was to result in disciplinary action against the social workers involved. The supervisor of one of these social workers then used the ex's false allegations as justification to retaliate against Swanson for his complaint. It appears she got Williams involved to help. And Williams has heavily involved himself in efforts to railroad, harass, and defame Swanson and his family ever since.

This nightmare continues today.
There are many people throughout the San Diego family law community who are involved in this case and have acted in bad faith and possible violation of laws. This includes at least on former minor's counsel attorney who is now a Superior Court judge, Margo Lewis. She (along with CPS and the police) hid the investigation results concluding that there had been no child sexual abuse for TWO YEARS in a what appears to be a ploy to drive up her billing and get more money out of the family.
This story has the potential to shock the community into action to clean up the corrupt mess in the police, CPS, and courts that are causing immense harm to so many San Diego families. Many lawyers, judges, CPS social workers, and others depend upon their ability to take children from families and drive conflict to get money out of the families. Thousands of children and parents are being hurt. This story is among the worst of them in recent years.
4 hearings later (90 days) and with no evidence in discovery, the State of Alaska declined to press charges but kept the case active. Meanwhile the CPS worker had threatened his wife, to scare her into testifying and took 3 more sons from them. 2 of the boys were later returned to them because of no justification and/or no evidence. However, I have not seen or spoken to my granddaughter for the last 8 months.
IAM CURRENTLY IN A BATTLE WITH DCF REGARDING MY GRANDDAUGHTERS....THERE IS NO WAY I WILL ALLOW THEM TO BE TAKEN FROM ME....IVE DONE NOTHING WRONG....JUST LOVE AND CARE FOR THEM....THEY ARE MY LIFE...
Threats were made towards my wife ,an illegal search accompanied by Durham Regional Police was conducted at her home,my wife was threatened by a supervisor named Cindy that if she did not leave me,she would not be able to see her son,that they would take him from her care and give him to his father Salvador,etc.
The day after i challenged them,my wife was told by a worker named Cindy that i was no longer allowed to be near my baby boy unless under adult supervision.Hmm?? Funny the day before i was allowed to be near him with no issues!????
THE C.A.S (PRIVATE CORPORATION) ARE A COMPLETE JOKE! unprofessional,terrible STUPID workers,they make the rules as they go! ,and should you dare to challenge them they will attack you as rabid wolves.
I am outraged ,and have decided to make it a major part of my life to now battle the C.A.S and there injustices. My new good friend CHAD WELLS of CANADA COURT WATCH has invited me into the fold,and i am happy and deeply honored to be counted amongst such devoted defenders of truth and justice.
Live free or die!

I am 24 years old and have been dealing with this since I was 21. I'm barely holding on and its faith that keeps me going. When I was separating from my kids dad at 8 months my oldest son was injured we do not know how or when it happened they have never been able to tell us. No criminal case is even pending on anyone. It was not my weekend with my son and I hadn't had him for 72 hrs. While I was at work I got the call that he needed to go to the er. I left work and rushed him there. The first question the Dr's asked me was had he gotten into any poisons. I'm confused and irate I said “he doesn't even crawl yet how could he get into anything" they transfer him, he has serve injuries and has to undergo brain surgery. I sat at the hospital for 3 months never leaving his side, losing everything we had. For the fear of him letting go.
Now he’s almost 3. Everything I do I do for him. They have never been able to explain what happened, but they have had both of my sons in foster homes since. Not even together have hired lawyer after lawyer who have done nothing but let me down. I am a good person and bad things happen to good people. They hate me in court because they know I've done nothing wrong and their on a power trip! I am the nicest you ever met. And it’s destroying my kids and me! I need help. They took my youngest son form the labor and delivery. He was only 3 days old. He’s going on 2 right now. I was first ordered to do parenting classes I completed them within three months. And had excellent reports. The secondary workers do not understand still to this day why they are doing this to me. My second DHS worker was a guy who was gay and that is when everything went nuts. Workers have visited my house and loved it. But my primary worker has never been here. I’ve been stable for three years never moved had the same job etc. I am even given random UA'S and have never failed any, but you know if I was cracked out they would me. I see every time I go to court. I am Choctaw and the judge even ruled out the Indian child welfare act. Which can I point out is illegal. But again that's more money I didn't have to file for an appeal. Now hear it is going on 3 years and now I'm in counseling that was court ordered just to string it out more. My counselor doesn't understand she says it obvious I'm a good mother and she can see the pain in boys eyes when were there. They won’t unlock themselves from my legs. I go back to court next week. It doesn't matter what I do it’s never good enough. They are now saying I am never home so I can’t have my kids back. Well I go to school 40 hrs a week work 37 hrs a week and am active in church and bible study. Truth is I have to stay busy to hold on. And I'm sorry I don't see how bettering my life while I have the time to is bad. I’ll be done with school in June, because I have been focusing on it while I didn't have my kids. And I don't see how doing something good they can turn it into bad. I mean of course if my boys were home I have money saved where id only have to work part time and could do school part time. Every time I go into that room they all team up against me. I am always well dressed. And my boys have everything at my home their own room as to where their placed now they sleep in the living room. I have watched a husky snap at my two year old and they got onto him not the dog. That house also has 8 dogs that live inside. They don't feed him anything but sweets. And he got scabies there. Every time I see him he has a new bruise. The other family keeps my oldest son so drugged up he never wants to move. Why all because they don't have time for him. I have played nice in their games for almost 3 years now. Everyone tells me to get mad at them show them I'm mad, but I'm afraid then they would say I had anger issues. I mean who wouldn't if their world was taken from them. I have held my head high throughout the whole progress. But kids need to be loved. Love only a mother can give them. They need to feel wanted and cared for, not just a check coming in. please I need help. This is unfair what they are doing to my children. They told me if I signed up rights to my oldest son I could have the youngest one back or they wouldn't give either back and take any other children I had. I did that and they lied they screwed me over and my lawyer let them. That’s the worst part of it all. I gave up on one and that's the worst choice I’ve made in this. But I thought it would be over. I'm tired of fighting. It’s making me sick. I have ended up in the hospital for stress. The adoption isn't finally yet on my oldest. But I just want this to be over. I'm 24 and never saw my life like this. I do volunteer work. And have a heart of gold. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why can’t I be a mother? Again I had court today, they my new ISP plan has almost been completed. But they still are not satisfied. I again have great reports and again them court order new services. If they have so many concerns why can't they court it all at once, so I can get this behind us? They continue to string it out! My lawyer is so fed up he has annoyed he is no longer going to take DHS cases. Our casa worker doesn’t like me and she’s never gotten to know me on a personal level to see what kind of person I really am. She has never seen me interact with my children. None of the workers have either. Everyone who has only has good things to say about my parenting skills. Although the courts are not willing to hear it. This morning in court Sara, the casa worker stated “she treats her kids like toy dolls" are you kidding me she’s never seen me interact with my children. They are my world. The worst lie she blurted out in court which really got me going was “she has been trying to get pregnant again" my lawyer asks her what grounds she has. She states “someone very close to the case" well for starters I would never intend on bringing another child into this world! Not to mention I do have an IUD. The 7 year birth control. Which has to be removed. How does that even make sense? Also you can’t say rumors that are not fair. It’s not right. I mean the only person who could really say I was trying to have another baby would be the person I was sleeping with which my life is too busy for anyways! I have too many other things I am trying to focus on at this time in my life. !
A group in Canada is trying to get together to put together a civil action lawsuit.
Anyways, Sunday everything spilled over. My partner whom always had a problem of letting ME take my own DAUGHTER on my own or letting my family be with her. Had a final fit. We where invited to breakfast and afterwards my sister took my daughter with her kids to a local park for fun. My partner kept calling and calling my sister and my mother. FInally they came and dropped her off and my partner rudely rushed to the car and pulled out my daughter from my mothers car. We got into a heated argument inside the house afterwards. I asked my mother to come over since both my mother and partner have had a fairly good relationship (had). Well we are all there at the house and my mother goes to the room to talk with my partner whom is packing things. She begins to argue with my mother and then tells both her and my father to leave the house. This angered me and I went over to tell her to Respect my parents! She then said she was going to call the police. She did and she lied and said that I had thrown her to the floor, thrown something at her back and thrown her ontop of the stove!!
I spent the 3 most dreaded days of my life among the criminal element of our society. Men broken by reality drug addicts, gang members, violent felons etc... An environment to which I am not accustomed. Having to be humiliated and ripped from my own home by the person I thought I loved right in front of my parents.
Criminal court dropped my case because there was obviously NO evidence of these accusations. But DCFS got involved and there they accused me of DV, they accused me of being a Binge Drinker since I told them how I had a few beers for my Bday, but worst of all they accused me of being a danger to my very own beautiful little girl of 3 years. Now I have to be supervised to see my own precious daughter whom I love with my heart. I am being forced to take and PAY for a bunch of classes that I DO NOT NEED to do! I am not a violent man, not an alcoholic and would never be a danger to my daughter. This is unjust and DCFS threatens my partner with saying that she lied or they will take my baby from even her. I only know this because of the lady that supervises whom is a friend of us both. I am honestly tired of this. This is all unjust and horrible. A man of 29 years that works his ass of to provide a home and dignity for his family is wrongfully accused of a horrible crime right after being burglarized and now I have to live with my parents and cannot be at my very own house which I bought 2 years ago and am now still paying the mortgage for even tho I cannot live there. I am tired and dont think I can stand the next court date. I need help if any at least support. I dont know what else to say...
Now let’s forward it a year and a half, up until last February, there were no calls to dfps or any problems with my oldest daughter, I distinct myself and my family, mainly my oldest from the negative influence that was destroying my family. We even have an adoption home study that was done in 2009 and with that an approval for an adoption was granted. But before we could get to court in February 2010, cps got another anonymous call against me. December 09 I took my girls and tried to let them have a relationship with their grandmother (my mother, Pat), boy was that a mistake. By February 11, 2010 I got a call from a lady named Jacinda Andre. She stated that my oldest made an outcry of abuse and drugs in the home. I was floored. Well she and I scheduled a home visit for the 12th. Well that morning of the 12th she called me and asked me to come into the office in Floresville. This was very new to me because it was not my first dance with this department. Now before I continue I must advise you my, now 21 year old, sister in law has lived with us for 2 years in the home to help me with my oldest. So I went into the office and before I even sat down Andre pulled a form already filled out with Pat’s information on it telling me that if I didn’t sign my girls over to her that they would be placed in state care. To avoid my youngest to be subjected to that I felt I had no other choice but to sign it. She then asked me if I drank. I said it’s my right to. She then asked me about me being addicted to drugs. I was like no I am not. She then demanded that I put this stick in my mouth and told me I had no choice (it came back negative). I called Pat to let her know what was going on and she told me that she already knew that Jacinda called her the day before. I was wondering why she would contact her before she would contact me. Well found out later that Andre lives within a mile to a mile in a half from my mother. Hummmmmmm!
When my daughter’s were handed over to Pat, Pat told her that she would not give the medication to my daughter because she didn’t feel anything was wrong with my daughter. Well instead of getting my girls out of there for medical neglect, which I was also being accused of, she left them there. Why?
Well for three months my youngest daughter kept telling them that her sister was lying and she would tell me and her dad that Pat was trying to get her to lie about us. My youngest daughter knows that lying is bad. After those three months my youngest daughter was placed back in the home with me and my sister in law. We were doing fine no one called or came by the house or the school to check on her (they said during this opened case that they worried about her being with me). Why didn’t they do any follow up on her? Well needless to say we had a family team meeting in august before the finial court hearing. In this meeting my step father John, stated that he knew that my oldest was lying and that he knew for a fact that I would never hurt her the way she was saying I had been and that she needed to go home and deal with it and stay out of trouble. Well Pat stated if we keep her who is going to help us support her because we can’t afford it all. Hummmmmmmmm again!
At the finial court hearing in august the family base case supervisor told my husband and I that if my oldest was to do this again, even though we all knew she was making it all up, that both my girls would be taken to the state and the case would go straight legal. How in the hell can they do that I asked. He said because they can.
Case was closed and not even 2 weeks went by, 2 days into school starting, before my oldest daughter, who was given back to me without being on meds for 7 months, started her stuff again. I immediately called the local police and then had my daughter admitted into a mental hospital. She was in the hospital and their school program till September 19th or so when they discharged her from the half day program for failing to corporate with therapy. So now September 21st my daughter threatened me and threatened to hurt herself. After I called the police, she and I were in the hallway and my sister in law was right next to us, when my daughter who is stronger and taller than I am, got in my face and threatened me yet once again. I reacted on instinct and tapped her across the check and told her to snap out of whatever mania she was in. I did let the police know what happened when they showed up within 5-10 minutes. They informed me that even though I admitted to what I had done they did not see any type of abuse but they did feel that I used what force was necessary to get my daughter away from me to prevent her from hurting me. I called a friend to get Ariel to calm down at her house. She was pleased to take her to try to help.
That Thursday on the 23rd, I went to pick my oldest daughter up for a doctor’s appointment from my friend’s house. She would not get in the car so I followed her the three houses back to our home. After she and I got inside the house, she went to her room, I was in the doorway to where my sister in law and my youngest could see me. My oldest then came out and pushed me into the wall near the office and went towards my sister in law and my youngest.
Before she could get out the door I told her not to take her anger out on her sister and to give her a hug goodbye. She did such but not with love and then ran out the door. I told my sister in law to get the little one in the car and we would go after her. I had to call the police and file a runaway report because she took off into the woods.
About 2 hours later I got a call from once again, Andre. She told me that my oldest was at Pat’s house and that she claimed that I had hit her. I told her that my youngest and my sister in law were there the entire time and I never once touched her but that my oldest did pushed me into a wall. That didn’t matter to this “investigator” at all. I told her with my sister in law and another witness to the call that I needed to go pick my oldest up and have her readmitted into the hospital. She told me no don’t do that lets agree to keep her at your mother’s home for the night and she and I would talk about all of this the next day. I was ok with this. NO SAFETY PLAN WAS MENTIONED JUST A VERBAL AGREEMENT and I have two witnesses to that call.
Well the next day came and I was on my way to pick my oldest up from Pat’s house to have her readmitted. I was leaving Floresville when I got a call another call from Andre. She asked me to come into the office because they were taking my oldest into custody. I went in and the moment I sat down she got a call from the front letting her know that Wilson sheriff’s officers were there if she needed assistance. I couldn’t help but laugh. She handed me a paper that was already filled out and asked me to look it over and sign it. I looked it over and I told her that I wasn’t signing it. She asked why I told her because she was a damn lie (she put on that form that I failed to provide a safe and secure environment for my daughter nothing mentioning my youngest). I continued to state that she had not done the job that she was hired for. That she did not investigate the allegations, that she took my daughter’s word who is ill, Pat’s word whom I have not had a relationship with in close to now 4 years, and never talked to any of my witnesses. She told me she didn’t care that I didn’t have to sign it. I gave her daughter’s pills and that was it.
Well on the 4th of October, I called the cps attorney and told her that maybe it was best for me to sign my rights over to my family so that they could adopt her. I didn’t know what else to do for her. I was trying to do what was, I know, right for my oldest, and to keep my youngest safe from being taken once again. I regret making that call at all. The very next day I had banging at my door. DFPS filed suit to take my little one from me without any investigation still to date since February 2010. I was in tears the rest of the day until my youngest came home from school. I held her in my arms and told her how much I loved her. She told me that she loved me too and that I was the greatest.
Well the court hearing came on the 14th and with all the proof, facts, evidence, and witnesses/statements we had the judge didn’t care she gave both my kids to Pat once again. She didn’t even give us the time of day in court. We appealed it and lost again. But that judge did give me weekly calls and visits with my children, which my oldest would not come.
Well at each visit I called my husband and every call so that my youngest could talk to her dad. And no one had a problem with it up till the end of December. That’s when they told me that I could no longer take pictures or video or even call my husband during the visits. I thought that was odd. During the first visit the week after the 4th, my husband and I went into the office to sign paperwork with the worker. She stated to my husband and I in front of another worker that she didn’t understand why my little one was taken with all the proof that I had that there was not abuse of any type in my home. She even stated that the judge was very rude and biased in the courtroom with us and that even she knew that this case revolved around my oldest daughter’s illness nothing else.
On November 8th, if I am not mistaken, I had my only home visit by the legal worker. I have the whole thing video taped. If you care for me to bring it to you to watch
On January 9th I found out how many times my oldest has been moved due to behavior and suicidal tendencies. She has been placed 6 times, 3 mental hospital stays, and now she is in a long-term RTC. And this was the day that THEIR doctor stated that her evaluation states that I should have no contact with my children. I was not happy one bit. Instead of doing what was in the best interest of my daughter which the ad litem was on our side, they stopped her from seeing her mother and talking to her period.
Since that date I have had a second opinion done and a psychiatric eval done and both doctors are better well established then theirs with 40+ more years. They both stated that there is nothing wrong with me and that my children should come home especially my youngest. When we went to court on February 9th, 2011, the judge and cps didn’t want to see or hear any of the new papers stating this. The doctor who did the second opinion eval was there and the judge tore his testimony up to bits and used his own wrongs against him. The associate judge interviewed my 6 year old in front of the ad litem and she told the judge the I don’t hurt her and her sister and that her sister hates me and wants to live with her grandmother. Well the judge pretty much told my daughter she didn’t care what she wanted. They have my taking domestic violence classes but yet they are throwing my abusing ex that has not been in our lives back in my face. I couldn’t even stay in the court room I was shaking in fear. My husband said that my ex turned all the abuse around on me. If I was so abusive why in the hell would he leave me to care for his 4 children 7 years ago and with my own and me pregnant? Yeah that’s what I said too! So now again we have to file a de novo. The hearing is on March 29th, 201 at 9 am in the Wilson County court house in Texas. This is where we stand today.

I do come across quite a few articles and blogs about this infertility issue. A wanna be mom can't have a baby so they look into adoption and blog about their "journey". Quite often they explore foster to adopt programs because they are cheap to free and often come with subsidies so there are benefits behind the bullshit. Don't ever leave that factoid out, it may or may not be much, but it is a factor. They don't care about you anyway. They want what they want and that's the kid. Then they fall in love with your kid as foster parents, and aggressively alienate them against you so that they fear and hate you and wanna stay with them.
It's National Infertility Awareness Month–How Much Do You Know?
This is news to me. All the hype I've seen had to do with National Child Abuse Propaganda Month. That's probably a technical keyword factor. But anyway, now it's National Infertility month coinciding with National Grilled Cheese Month! And next month is National Whatever Month too! All of this is superficial to say the least. But it is why the legalities don't matter nearly as much as the the blind and ignorant support of the general public, who are the ones who cry out against that that poor abused kid who they saw on TV, prompting lawmakers to make laws and the child protective industry to take other peoples kids for frivolous reasons, simply in order to cover their asses.
Notice how this all goes together? Why? Why? Notice the buyers (infertiles) and the suppliers (targeted parents) are all honored or dishonored in their own special way at the same time? Is that a coincidence?
And look at the emotional shots... (how they appeal to the suckers for a sob story)
"heartbreaking failed infertility treatments"
"“People are ignorant to what it truly is and think you can just get over it—just like anything else that’s devastating in your life, you can’t,” said Maria Small, who has been battling infertility for more than three years."
I realize it's sad when one realizes that God has made somebody naturally unfit to be parents. No worries though, his authority is overridden these days.

Governor Corbett Credits Greater Public Education, Awareness for Pennsylvania's Continuing Decline in Child Abuse
Governor Tom Corbett today credited greater public education about the causes of child abuse as a primary reason the number of abuse cases has declined in Pennsylvania for the second straight year.
Note: Although any noticeable drop in child abuse is a good thing, something about this article concerns me. Pennsylvania apparently suffers from a severe infestation of false accusing rats.
The 2010 Annual Child Abuse Report, released in recognition of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month, shows there were 24,615 reports of suspected child abuse in the state last year, down from 25,342 reports in 2009 and 25,655 in 2008.See what this tells you is that only aprox. 15% of reports of child abuse or neglect were substantiated leaving about 85% of reports determined to be false.
The number of substantiated reports of child abuse declined to 3,656 in 2010, down from 3,943 in 2009 and 4,201 in 2008.
What's really interesting though is that public education campaigns in Pennsylvania lowers the number of reports, yet in Nebraska...
Nebraskans utilize child abuse hotline to make reports
They're having record highs, and Traci Vauble, the executive director at the Central Nebraska Child Advocacy Center thinks the calls have increased because people are getting more educated.

Note: I love how they like to make examples out of the one, when the many do the same thing. Remember, it's all about appearances. This makes them look like they're trying to run an honest organization.
Don't be fooled.

Child Protective Services (CPS) deals with a variety of cases involving child abuse and neglect. If your child is taken into custody, you will be informed in writing with information on why your child was taken from you. A court hearing will determine where your child should live. If the judge decides that you are unable to care for your child, there are a few things you can do in order to get your child back from CPS.
Note: Basically, what they're saying here is that if you work hard at kissing the workers ass and if you're lucky, she may give you your kids back. I like how they leave out the part where she also may decide to keep the kid and adopt them out for the bonus money.
