My daughter is Tiffany . She ended up in the "system" due to her asking me for help to get off of her addiction to cough and cold pills. She came to me one day and admitted that she has been talking them and wanted off of them. I asked her how many she has been taking at a time. She said 8 and she was going threw withdrawal but did not want to continue to do them. I told her to take 4 . Then the next time 2, then 1 . She took the 4 that day and never needed to take any more. She went to her guidance counselor the next day looking for support in staying off them. And cyf shows up at my door saying I abused my child by advising her to take 4 pills instead of the 2 written on the box.
My 3 grandsons were taken by CPS in April of 2014. Long story, but not one hearing has resulted in parents able to speak, CPS is trying to adopt them out and dad has been told that CPS never intended to return the boys. We need help! Next hearing is in June, then we hear there will be another hearing scheduled at that time for Dec 2015!!! oldest boy was beaten up after being put in a foster home.
On Oct. 8th, 2014 CPS came to my home and took my three sons out of my care and gave them to a foster family due to allegations of neglect and drugs abuse. This was only a matter of days after my youngest Damien was born. My heart sank when this happened. I thought this couldn't get any worse. Well It has since that date. They required us to work family services and we have(my fiance and I). I was required to go to parenting class(completed) drug and alcohol assessment(completed), psycho social(completed), individual counseling(ongoing) random drug tests(passed every one) and to have a stable home and income. WE HAVE DONE ALL OF IT!
