In 2013 my husband and I went to daughters house to pick up our grandchildren. Judge Wildlife told them the need to make sure we are signed up for foster care. Went back to court in February of 2014 DHS, foster care, or CPS had not set us up to become a foster home. Judge reprimanded the workers for being derelict in their duty. When asked why they had not followed his orders they said that they did not believe we could pass their tests.
in short cps took two children claiming child abuse. one got sick in school and our new born never left the hospital we have been in court going on four years fired three sell out attorneys now cour appointed.
I apologize for the length, but I have a question / need some insight. My sister has had issues with CPS for quite a while (legitimate drug related problems). CPS tried to terminate rights (for a little over 8 months), during this period they constantly tried to get her to voluntarily terminate rights in exchange for ~2 visits a year under the guise they were concerned that if she went to court she would lose all rights.
My heart shattered reading about your heinous ordeal Patricia.
Prior to this year, I never gave CPS much thought. I wrongly assumed that the innocent would always be seen as and the guilty found out and punished.
What I have learned, also in Traverse City Michigan, is how naive I was.
