Child Protective Services (CPS) — What a joke. And not a funny one. Children living with a stable parent, with no criminal background, happy, being cared for and loved, forced by a judge to have trial period with unstable parent, with criminal background, whom children do not want to be with and warned something bad would happen if this was permitted. Same day — something bad did happen — children taken and put in foster care and not allowed to be put back in stable parent’s custody where they want to be.
Nine months later — after missing Christmas, New Years, Valentines Day, Spring break, Easter, Summer Vacation, beginning day of school year — still in foster care because of “court system,” causing permanent damage mentally and physically for the rest of their (children’s) lives.
Where is the “P” in CPS? Don’t know how the judge sleeps at night.
