I think people in the U.S need to know that CPS (Child Protective Services) can come into your home, and take your children from you based on nothing more then they "think" you did something. And they get away with this! No facts, no evidence, just well we think something happen. This is what has happen with me and my family. People in America need to know that this is what is going on with CPS. There is no innocent till proven guilty with the family court system! They take your children and won't give them back until you can somehow convince them that what they "think" is not true. Tell me how do you fight a thought that someone has about you? I have been forced to leave my husband and move in with my mother in the hopes that this will get my daughter return to me. Still my lawyer thinks I are too divorce my husband thinking that it would look better if I did. I refuse to do so. I will be going to court tomorrow to see if I can dispute their lies about me. Please keep me in your prayers. I never knew that the system worked this way. I had no ideal that these people could just show up at your house and rip your child from you based on nothing more then a thought. People need to know that this stuff is going on and can happen to anyone who has children.

Ladykay, I first want to say that I'm not addressing your particular situation because I obviously do not know the details,
but am rather talking about my own experience with CPS. You state that cps is overzealous,
that they overreact and remove children from homes they don't need to be removed from.
 
However when I was a kid, my mother was reported numerous times to cps from the time I started school until I was a teenager.
They only finally reacted and did anything to help at all when the report came from police officers and included evidence from a third party.
For years I was left in a situation that no child should ever be left in.
 
Had CPS intervened earlier I would have been spared a lot of things that should never have happen to me.
I am blessed because the authorities did eventually help me. ( Oh,had they done so sooner, but it was not to be.)
 
Today, I have a secure family that love me, care for me and are helping me to grow.
They have given me a safe environment, installed in me honest principles .
With that love I am now slowly putting the past behind me.
 
Worthy played an important part in my new walk, that and hearing the prayers of my dad for me at night when I moved here to my new home.  
I accepted Christ into my heart almost a year ago and move forward , safe in the knowledge that all things work for HIS glory.
 
LadyKay I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Lady your situation is in my prayers, I wont try to comment on your OP as I have no working knowledge of the CPS system in the USA.

Logan it must have taken a lot of courage to post the above. 

 

Let me just say that you are a fine young man , it's an honour and a privilege to count you as a friend. 

 

I and others have seen how you are growing , planting stepping stones in your life , a firm base to move forward onto. 

God will use you Logan. 

 

May God Bless you and your mum and dad , pops, lolly and all the family.

I am so sorry to hear of your continuing harassment by CPS. There is no longer "innocent until proven guilty" in America's legal (I can't say justice) system any longer. Ever since the "it takes a community" movement took hold, the government has decided that they know best how to raise our children. Children have discovered that they can get their parents into all sorts of trouble by simply intimating any kind of abuse is taking place in the home. And parents have become afraid or unwilling to control and discipline their children. This is the sign of the times. I don't believe that for one second that you are doing anything to deserve such treatment as you are getting, but you can take some comfort knowing that there are many people praying for you and that you are under persecution for Christ. God bless you and I hope things get better.

I am very happy for you LadyKay.  Did they believe your story, or did your separation from your husband cause them to change their mind?  Did you ever find out what caused all of this to happen in the first place?

I need sometime to collect my thoughts and then I will tell you more about it all. But for now I will say this:

 

No weapon formed against you will succeed, and you will refute any accusation raised against you in court.

This is the heritage of the LORD's servants, and their righteousness is from Me."

This is the LORD's declaration."

 

Isaiah 54:17

 

This verse from Isaiah came to me last year. I just open up by Bible and found it. It took 15 months for it to happen, but that is exactly what happen! I did indeed refuted every accusation that was raised against me in court!  I thought God had left me. I thought he no longer cared for me. I even thought he did not love me. At times I felt alone and without hope. But God did hear my cry. He did not abandon me. Even in my anger at him he still was there for me. I need to tell my story. For the glory of God. I need to let others know that all is not lost. I wanted to die. I really did. I even thought about how I would do it. But God was there for me in the end. He helped me hang on. I only hung on because of him. It was bad at times. Really bad. We are talking crying in the bathroom for hours bad. I thought my daughter would never come home to me. My situation looked  imposable. I was facing people who were lying and making false accusations against me, and it seem that not matter what I did; they keep winning. But in the end, it was my God who had the last say! I need to tell this story to help others out there like me. Who feel all is lost and God had abandoned them.

This made me sad and then very happy when I heard of the outcome.

 

Praise God for what He did for you!  Requesting prayer on these forums was the thing that made all the difference imho.
