I want to go back to David. In today’s current political environment, we are hearing A LOT about child separation and what is happening to families at the border. Honestly, hearing all the outrage is what triggered me to go full steam ahead with this blog. I posted the following on my Facebook page on June 18th, 2018:
I have tried to keep quiet. But I can’t anymore. I have to speak out. All the selective outrage, and hypocrisy by politicians and media pundits are driving me crazy. Let’s get one thing straight—separating children from their parents is wrong. PERIOD.
What if I told you that what is happening to immigrant children happens to American children EVERYDAY but no one is seeing it? CPS is removing our children illegally on a daily basis then producing fraudulent documents to cover up the crimes committed. Citizens are misled into believing CPS has legal grounds to remove children from “abusive” homes. The truth is they don’t!!!! I witnessed that first hand on July 8, 2015, the day both my innocent son’s were illegally removed from my care. I was forced to move out of my home. You may be thinking my case was just an unfortunate “misunderstanding” or an exception to the rule… I will tell you this: my story IS the exception in the sense that I got my children BACK. Most parents have to spend the rest of their lives, money, and time trying to get their children back when there was never any proof to begin with.
Where’s the outrage for OUR children?
According to the Children’s Bureau (a department of US Health & Human Services) over 400,000 children are currently in Foster Care. From those, 45% were in non-relative foster homes. From all these cases of “abuse” 88% were dismissed or never charged, yet the children were never reunified with their biological families (while the foster family receives roughly $700/month per child). Rant over.

to rip husband and wife or father, mother and child apart so bitterly
than our present Family Court System.”
