On June 18, 2009 Our life was changed when an innocent man got shot and killed while his child got ready for school inside the house. Department of Children Services came and did an "emergency removal" on my children, although my girls and I were victims and I did an on demand test for Department of Children Services which was negative for all drugs and alcohol which was evidence in my favor that never showed up in court. DCFS also filed allegations that I put my oldest daughter in harms way to be molested which is a LIE, DCFS are mandated reporters and everytime I asked if they did anything into regards of the arrests or the outcome of the investigation I was always told they were working on it or no updates etc. Come to find out, NO REPORT WAS EVER MADE.
During the last year the emotional trauma my daughters' have suffered has caused them to act out emotionally and a lot of tantrums, instead of DCFS looking at the overall situation that my daughters' had a hard time being away from me, DCFS felt that my daughters needed Psychotropic medication for behavioral problems.
DCFS has based this whole case on lies, false allegations and evidence in my favor not showing up in court. So tell me what is in the best interest of children?
2 years later and still fighting strong I have become a Parental Rights activist, I wish I knew then what I know now and what I do know is we as parents have rights and so do our children and I think parents should be educated legally so they have a fair chance when they appear in childrens court.
On July 24, 2012 my case was finally closed for good. It took a lot of work and tears to get to where I am now. The best advice I can give to parents is DO NOT give up, there will be days that you will be so tired of going through this, just remember your kids faces and how much they need you and believe me your inner strength will kick in. Research is a big key factor too, if you don't know research, research, research! Always remember what you are fighting for.
God Bless You all
