On Tuesday 2/7/17 we were told to drop off our foster child off at ocs at 4pm. No choice and was not an emergency removal. Actually this child they wanted we have had since birth until now 2yrs. There was no transition plan into this family home they said passed the icpc. (I don't think this was the case at all in no way did they pass because they uncle has a felony on him) this aunt that wanted this child never even tried to build a relationship with the baby! We were her only family she has ever known now ripped away! We arrived at OCS/CPS and the worker litterly ripped the baby from my husbands arms while she was screaming, and yelling daddy no daddy no! Kicking.
I left my drug addict abusive ex. Let's call him 'Jo' didn't know I was pregnant at the time. I came back. The abuse got worse, I fled with my toddler son to a shelter for women domestic who were victims of domestic violence. When the baby was born, I stupidly gave my ex another chance. The abuse continued. When I told him i was leaving, he had me arrested and I was put in jail
My children were taken after I took my baby (6 weeks) to the hospital. It was found out her father had hurt her. They took my children. I kicked him out and he went to prison. I didn't get my kids back. The abuser and I had the EXACT same chance to get her back and I had a chance to get my other 2 back. There was no danger in my house. I was questioned by cops unrecorded and denied a lawyer or mental health professional and then preceded to tell me I was a horrible mom because I went to sleep after 3 days of not sleeping, (I have PTSD caused by being in foster care myself) all in front of my cps case worker.
