I really wish I could help every single person that is experiencing the traumatic and horrific injustices of Child Protective Services. If I was physically capable of helping each and every one of you on a personal level I would, in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, I cannot do that. When I do attempt to help someone, their story practically immobilizes me as I know it brings out very real and very emotional memories of my experiences and loss. Please bear with me and keep calling or email me at: email@example.com.
My husband and I read every single heartbreaking story and feel your pain as if it were us. Every detailed story makes me cry, and more so mad at the monsters that go around acting like they are saving children. What a rouse the system is! I have very very strong negative opinions of those people for the following reasons:
[DISCLAIMER: I DO DESPISE CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE AGENCIES AND THOSE PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES SOCIAL WORKERS AS WELL AS THE COURT COHORTS BUT THAT SHOULD NOT BE PERCEIVED AS ANY KIND OF PHYSICAL THREAT AS I CAN REFRAIN FROM ACTING VIOLENT. I DO NOT PROMOTE VIOLENCE AGAINST THESE PEOPLE AND WOULD NOT SUPPORT NOR CONDONE ANYONE WHO PERPETRATED VIOLENCE OR THREATS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST ANY HUMAN BEING. YOU HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO CHOOSE HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT SOCIAL WORKERS AND THEIR COURT COHORTS RATHER THAN FEEL THE WAY I FEEL WITHOUT HESITATION. JUST BECAUSE I DESPISE THEM DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU SHOULD DESPISE THEM, IT IS YOUR PERSONAL CHOICE.
I despise social workers and their supervisors for all the extremely vulgar lies that come out of their mouths and/or write in their reports about good, decent parents;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for every cover-up of their deception;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for every broken promise that they make;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for separating children who are obviously bonded to their parents and siblings;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for placing children with strangers who TRULY ABUSE AND NEGLECT THEM;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for separating siblings;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for not caring about the children or hearing their voices when they speak about NOT being abused and that they are happy and well cared for at home;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for claiming that a child said things about their parent that they did not say;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for threatening or coercing children into claiming that they had been abused;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for performing invasive and very uncomfortable sexual assault examinations on children that they KNOW have not been subjected to any sexual abuse (until they themselves do that with the examination);
I despise social workers and their supervisors for failing to assess family members for placement and/or for claiming to family members that they are not approved despite the assessment department sending them a letter stating that they had been approved;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for administering psychotropic medication to children as young as 12 months old without consulting the parent;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for denying parents knowledge of the administration of drugs and the right to make that medical decision;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for denying the rights of the parents to make any medical decisions, denying their right to know their child’s medical condition
I despise social workers and their supervisors for RE-VACCINATING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN DESPITE HAVING THE CHILD’S VACCINE RECORDS IN THEIR FILES!
I despise social workers and their supervisors for taking custody of children whose parents chose not to subject their child to extremely harmful chemotherapy and radiation for the treatment of cancer and chose a homeopathic approach;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for taking illegal custody of children as a retaliation to good parents for speaking out and warning other parents of this gross injustice;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for not reporting injuries of children in foster care;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for not reporting deaths of children in foster care;
I despise social workers and their supervisors for failing to investigate obvious abuse perpetrated upon children in foster care:
I despise social workers and their supervisors for falsifying evidence and submitting such evidence to the court;
I despise the court for always siding with CPS;
I despise the court for never dismissing a petition due to lack of evidence;
I despise the court for sustaining every objection of county counsel and overruling any and all objections made by the parents or their counsel;
I despise the court for failing to find CPS in contempt when they do not follow court “orders” but use any and all major or minor deviations of the Welfare & Institutions code by the parents against them;
I despise the court for being so positively bias towards the County and so negatively against the parents;
I despise the court for failing to question anything that the social workers report says or the evidence attached to it;
I despise the court for adopting each recommendation of the Department as it makes its “Findings and Orders”, as they say, “I adopt the recommendations contained on page (blah blah blah) of the (blah blah blah) Report dated (blah blah blah)” rather than make his/her findings based on credible evidence and testimony;
I despise the court for conducting “hearings” in an adversarial manner;
I despise the “Defense Panel” attorneys for failing their clients in every way possible;
I despise the court for failing to clearly state on the record the reasons for finding that the child(ren) come within Welfare & Institutions Code Section 300;
I despise the court and the Defense Panel for failing to question the legitimacy of documents, the validity of the social worker’s testimony, and for failing to allow the parents or other family members to speak in court;
I despise County Counsel for sleeping with the “Judge”;
I despise the Director of Social Services for pushing the Supervisors to remove without offering the family any real services and for claiming that demanding a parent to drug test is considered a “service” and is allowed to be used as a Reasonable Effort to allow the children to remain at home;
I despise the way that the county submits Minute Orders to the State of California for qualifying for AFSA and CAPTA despite the fact that the Minute Orders do not accurately reflect the conduct of the hearing;
I despise the “Collaborative Partners” for either 1) Being completely ignorant to what the County is doing to children and families; or 2) Knowing what is going on and contributing to the destruction of the families;
I despise the “headhunters” who are usually nurses or wannabe doctors who will see a situation that they can manipulate and turn into something bad against the parents and completely wrong and untrue, this bothers me so much I have hyperventilated from the stress of hearing the injustice;
I despise the police officers that go to people’s homes and watch their rights be violated and watch children be removed from people that they can clearly see care properly for their children;
I despise anyone who is aware of the injustices and does nothing.
And these are the reasons I can think of off the top of my head! There are many more reasons and they all have to do with specific cases. I will be listening to someone’s story and they will tell me something that the social worker did or said and I will get all red in the face and just say, “Oh my god, I swear, I despise those people!”
Like I said, I wish I could help every person who visits our site and cries out for help. Reading the comments on ‘Families Destroyed, Tell Your Story” and on other posts literally debilitates me sometimes because I want to write objections for everyone, I want to write and call social workers, supervisors and the Director himself/herself for each and every one of you but it is physically impossible for me to do so. My husband and I keep talking about funding. We are exploring our options and applying for whatever we can. I want to create an alternative to CPS. I want to have a legal staff, I want to provide seminars and workshops for parents currently in the system. I want to convince everyone who is unaware of what is happening to us that this shit needs to change. Its like when we learned (or maybe just led to believe, I’m not sure) in school about what happened in Germany to the Jews and even non-Jews and thought, “Oh my God, how could that have happened? Why did the people of Germany just sit by and let their government do that?” Well, why are WE, CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, letting this happen to our own families?????
This post, as all posts, is dedicated to our son, Donnelly Keaton Burns, our little baby boy who was stolen by CPS and their court cohorts (with the help of Leslie Ann Logan Burns Hoyle) for adoption incentive funding
This site is brought to you by William and Sharon Burns. Our son, Donnelly Keaton Burns, was literally stolen from us and the rest of our family by the corrupt and abusive child protection industry. To this day, Donnelly is being denied access to even KNOWING that his family did not abandon him.
We would like to thank all who support our site by visiting and commenting. We are proud to be able to continue to bring you this site AD FREE. I have re-organized the side link panel and am continuing to update old posts and place them in the appropriate category. I am checking the status of each link and have added quite a few more. Eventually, I will have a link to the laws and statutes of each state.
We are very excited about our stats! Over 500 people visit this site EACH DAY! Although, we are excited in a good way and in a BAD way. The good way is that people who need this information are finding us! Awesome! The BAD way is that CPS is on a rampage, doing things the opposite of the way they should thus, more and more people need this information!
Hopefully we have something here to help you deal with this horrible thing that you are going through. NO PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN WHO IS FIGHTING ALLEGATIONS OF CHILD ABUSE, WHO ADAMANTLY LOVE AND CHERISH THEIR CHILDREN SHOULD LOSE THEM FOR ANY REASON!!
But I am certain that those who have argued with CPS, who have told their “lawyers” that CPS lied and/or falsified evidence, whose children are well behaved and get good grades, whose children are healthy and cute, and who are doing everything that is asked of them are having a more difficult time getting their children back. Do you know of anyone who basically admitted to the allegations, who attend only some of their classes and programs, who miss visits and even continue to use illegal substances yet THEY have their children? See, that’s what I am talking about. We believe that the children of those people are not “adoptable” so CPS doesn’t want them. Yours however, are “adorable and adoptable”. My Defense Panel “attorney”, Marla Contessa Mahoney, told me straight up, ‘I will be honest with you Ms Joyce, Donnelly is VERY adorable and VERY adoptable. Even though you are doing everything you can and more, you are not going to get him back. I’m sorry.”
(I’m not saying that if you get them back that they are not well behaved, get good grades and adorable!)
But every case is different and CPS budgets change all the time. You may very well get your child back. If I could do it all over again, I would hire a private attorney no mater what the cost was and no matter what I had to do to get up the money (except steal it of course). That is your best chance. The only other thing you can do is go with flow, do what they want, kiss their ass and never argue with them. If you are lucky enough to get your children back Get your case closed and MOVE. Move far away or at least to another county and don’t ever ever ever let CPS in your home again. Stay out of trouble (jail) and don’t put yourself or your children in any situation that you don’t trust or with anyone who has ever thought CPS was a good agency. Those are the ones that call the hotline. Family members call the hotline too so really be careful of them.
We believe that it is the goal of the New World Order or whatever they call themselves, is to tear apart the family unit, to pit neighbor against neighbor and make everyone generally distrust each other yet trust the government. This is to prevent uprisings against the government. Imagine what we could do to them if we we acted in unity! So make amends with your family, try to get along, genuinely, they are your FAMILY AFTER ALL. Another option, if your family loves you, is have them advocate for placement with them and to pretend to be against you. Then they agree to adopt your child(ren) and promise that they won’t let you near them. Then, when the adoption or legal guardianship is final and the case is completely closed, your family can just give you your child back. Most of the time no one is going to know that there is any court documentation as it is completely confidential. You are the parent, you have the birth certificate, who is going to say that you don’t have custody? Caution, you would have to move for sure and change schools or better yet, home school your kids.
Yes, I am suggesting you play their game. It worked for us in our first case. You have nothing to lose by doing this because fighting them is definitely not going to get them back any sooner. Unless, of course, you have an attorney who isn’t scared of CPS nor in their pocket. Good luck with that one.
IF YOU GET YOUR CHILDREN BACK YOU MUST SUE THEM! if everyone sues, things might change for the better and they may have to actually play by the rules and laws. SEE THE SIDE PANEL: Suing CPS.
IF YOU FIGHT THEM, FIGHT THEM WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT. DON’T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING! SEE EVERYTHING ON THE SIDE PANEL.
Good luck to you and keep your chin up no matter which way you handle it.
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS DAY FOR A VERY LONG TIME. NOW CPS IS GOING TO START COVERING UP ALL THE EVIDENCE AGAINST THEM. ANYONE WITH STRONG EVIDENCE LIKE I HAVE BETTER HIDE IT AND MAKE MANY COPIES. I HAVE ALREADY SENT COPIES OF ALL MY EVIDENCE TO TIM DONNELLY.
DIANNE FEINSTEIN SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF PARENTS HAVE BEEN ASKING HER TO DO THIS FOR YEARS AND ALL SHE KEEPS SAYING IS SHE SUPPORTS CPS. I HAVE WRITTEN HER MANY TIMES AND THE SAME ANSWER, WE MUST GET RID OF THESE REPRESENTATIVES WHO DO NOTHING WHEN FAMILIES GET HURT FINALLY AUDIT HEARING GETS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY
Dear Donnelly, We love you and miss you soooo much! We think about you every single second, of every single hour, every single day, of every single week, of every single month, since we last saw you and for the rest of our lives.
Mommy and Daddy never did anything to hurt you except fail to protect you from being kidnapped by CPS and the Collaborative Court Cohorts. We tried to RESCUE you but they had us illegally arrested for kidnapping charges that should have only been a contempt of court issue.
Your whole family misses you too: Sissy Kayla, Aunt Cindy, Pop-pop, Sissy Alex, Stephen, Billy, Christopher, Aunt Katie, Uncle Hugo, Cousin Kaitlyn, Cousin Mikey, Michielle, Melissa, Racheal, and the rest of your friends.
We hope you still have pictures of us so you won’t forget us.
NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. Did everyone get that? NO!!! DO NOT SPEAK TO CPS IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A “CASE”. THEY HAVE NO POWER UNTIL YOU GIVE IT TO THEM. Even if you think you have done nothing wrong and speak to them to “clear up any misunderstandings” THAT WILL BE THE MISTAKE and you WILL BE PUTTING YOUR CHILDREN AT RISK OF IMMINENT HARM. You DO NOT HAVE TO SPEAK TO THEM, BY LAW. Exercise your 4th Amendment RIGHT, CPS is not out to respect it, in fact, they laugh when you are intimidated and think that you HAVE to speak to them or let them in your home. You don’t have to be rude, in fact, kill them with kindness. Tell them how sweet they are for caring so much about your child but that neither you nor your child need their services and to have a nice day. Tell your children to NEVER EVER speak to a CPS worker at school. Make sure that you draft a NON-AUTHORIZATION prohibiting CPS from being able to speak to your child at school. GEt it NOTARIZED and give copies to the school, one to the office clerk, one to your child’s counselor and one to the Principal. Make them sign a Receipt of Non-Authorization so you have proof that they know about it.
Once again, if CPS wants to talk to you, do not open your door, talk to them through the window or crack open the door and give them a note telling them that you are not aware of any criminal investigations so they have no reasonable cause to be there. Tell them if any criminal charges are filed to let your attorney know immediately and give the CPS workers the name of the most prestigious criminal attorney in your area. When they leave, go ahead and give that guy (or woman) a call and see if they give free consultations over the phone. Most attorneys do. Just tell them that CPS came to your door and you told them that you don’t speak to social workers and if any criminal charges are filed that you told CPS to contact him (attorney). Most likely, if you have not abused your child, they will send you a letter in about a week or so letting you know that they closed their investigation. Hopefully, you have those Non-Authorizations at the school and have educated your children to not speak to social workers, or the school nurse, teacher, counselor, or even the principal IF THEY are asking questions about home OR YOU or anything that could be misrepresented against your
There are times when
CPS appears to be reasonable and normal. However, do not be fooled, this is their way of keeping up the illusion that they are “public servants”. Some people they encounter must still believe that they do good. Another trick they use is the one where a home is clearly a hazard yet they leave the children there. You’ve seen plenty of those cases, CPS is constantly being sued for “failing to act” despite receiving numerous prior referrals, and a child dies because they didn’t remove them. THIS is so they can claim that they are still “needed in the community because so many children are dying at the hands of parents!” Someone I know has known a social worker for a long time who was aware of an incident where that worker was told to place 3 children back into a home known for manufacturing methamphetamine. The worker was distraught about doing this but she felt that she had to even though the Department knew something was going to happen to those children. She returned the children on Friday and they were all dead by Monday morning. That case received a lot of attention and the Department was able to use it to get more funding. Coincidence? Me thinks not. These are very wicked people pretending to be saviors.
And I’M THE BAD GUY. SAY GOODNIGHT TO THE BAD GUY.
