Please support people who are being persecuted by these people unjustly. Good parents will become better if they stay in and fight, but they need
It is a special agony to have to cooperate with someone who is holding your child hostage, and calling YOU the enemy.
Meanwhile, who knows what happens while they have custody of other people's kids?
I don't believe in much, and that's a fact, but this kind of thing makes me believe more in lower-level conspiracies. I don't believe humanity is
organized or cooperative enough to actively, intelligently conspire to do this, but I certainly can believe that it is, like so much else, a
conspiracy of lowest-common-denominator workers who stay while better social workers flee on principle from state agencies, coupled with an appalling
number of needy people and sheer hardheartedness.
Once the ball gets rolling with your child, who knows where it will end?
I had trouble personally with our agency over a simple accident, and let me tell you, that was nearly 10 years ago, my son and I still have separation
anxiety, and my relationship with my daughter was completely ruined (ex capitalizing on my entanglement with these "officials").
My son and I are closer than ever, he's above average in every way, and a brilliant artist and talented chef. He's being trained to take over a
restaurant, even as young as he is. A special person, like many other wonderful young people, who didn't get that way through abuse, neglect, or
anything like that.
Perfect parent? That's a laugh. I couldn't protect him from child protective services, but cooperated fully, an innocent fool. That's the
past...but some things have not recovered, like my daughter/his sister. He lost her, we both did, and now she will probably have dark doubts about me
forever. I hope not. She's still my girl, and just like me in ways I am glad about, so things will balance out.
At least my child came home. So many don't. Please support people who are suffering unjustly this way, offer to testify in court, and be willing to
get involved in their terrible pain. It may be your turn sooner than you would like to think, since more and more people get turned in for abusing
their kids when the reporter has other motivations, like revenge or harassment.
Those cases can be disproven, usually, but they don't leave one's record, so this is a bullseye on the back of anyone with a child. Be careful who
you let into your life, and trust your closest friends. The support they give, mentally, tangibly, every other kind, keeps parents strong and
Reach out, and you may help someone else stay or get on track while they still can. This battle is won by smiling at young moms, getting the door for
a little kid or pregnant lady, nodding respectfully at a family man, and for God's sake just giving a flip about other humans.
Learn to love, while you still can. I am begging each and every one of you. Hold on and try harder while your family is still together, or still
free from foster care, jail, and the grave.
Forgive God, even though He never did any wrong thing. Pray for your people and mine and everyone's needs as much as our own. Please.
If it keeps your child believing in you, it's worth it.
If your faith helps you hold it together even one more minute, that minute will be the decisive minute in your life, and will keep you when you would
have surely been destroyed.
Personally, these agencies are destructors of families and of common sense and the welfare of kids period, except when they literally save someone's
