CPS isn't protecting the children

The other issue I have seen in our CPS system is social workers are reluctant to pull children from homes where they are in danger if the children are not considered "adoptable", ie, large sibling groups, children with serious mental or emotional problems, etc.

So we have a system where children who could remain in the home are pulled and children at risk of serious harm being left in bad situations.

The third bad situation

So we have a system where children who could remain in the home are pulled and children at risk of serious harm being left in bad situations.

I fully agree... and then there is a third situation that needs to be addressed -- once a child IS put "in-care", many of those children are being abused, either by extended family members, or complete strangers.  [See our abuse case pages to get a glimpse of child safety within "the system".] Abuse post-placement tells me social services is not investigating families properly and they are not maintaining a relationship with the placed-child through follow-up visits ("safety checks").

All in all, it's a very sad situation and I fear many GOOD foster parents are not willing to open their eyes fully to the very bad ways in which the child placement industry operates.

NO ONE under ANY

NO ONE under ANY circumstances should EVER call ANY government authority to police political correctness into family life. The family is sacred and sovereign. The family is in fact an independent and autonomous living entity that declared its own creation and which has its own immune defense system. It heals itself as it grows and fixes glitches within its body politic. To forcibly dismember a family is technically committing MURDER ON A LIVING BEING ! ! Violence begets the same karma. The family politic is the REAL driving force propelling our great species –-AND NOT short lived socialist empires with their scorched earth final implosions.

on the other hand

You may feel that families are sacred, sovereign, independent and automous, but that doesn't make it so. Except for Robinson Crusoe (and that was a fictional character), no one lives on a deserted island. Families operate with a community and have to abide by community standards, also called laws.

Not only do families have to respect the laws, their very creation is regulated by law. Marriage is a government recognized institute, and every child born to a family receives a government sealed document (aka birth-certificate) declaring the parenthood of the child. With that, parental rights are granted to a family. This granting of rights also means those rights can be taken away.

I would agree with you that the revocation of parental rights is something that should only happen in the most serious cases and after very thoughtful deliberation, but there are situations where there simply is no alternative. Not all families are able to do the self-healing thing, you seem to proclaim.

Family Healing

Thank you, Niels. 

My son was one of those children removed from his mother by the state.  16 years later, my son found his mom on Face Book a few months ago.  She lives with her fiance several hours away.  Shortly thereafter, my son and his girlfriend visited them for the weekend while we took care of our 18 month old grandson back home.

My son's biological mother (we'll call her "Cindy") and her fiance made the trip north this Christmas to see their grandson for the first time.  We first met them for a few minutes Thursday night.  Last night they came over for pizza and together we planned the extended family meal for Christmas Day at our home.

It turns out Cindy is a very good cook and she's completely taking over our kitchen to prepare the Christmas Day meal.  We'll try to stay out of her way as much as possible.

Both sets of my son's parents were nervous at first about meeting each other.  Cindy very quickly told me she was a good mother and not to believe what was written in the CPS files the state gave us back in 1995.  She obviously was worried about what we thought of her...  and vice versa.  I was hoping she didn't see us as an extension of the state which took her son from her so many years ago.  Cindy's parental rights were terminated long before we met our son at age 5.

I'm gonna wrap this up because at this point the history really doesn't matter.  They are good people and so far, so good.  Sometimes it takes years before families can heal.  Sometimes it never happens at all.  Sometimes "family" means something totally different to one person from another.

I guess my only point is that healing can best take place when we don't marginalize any one group, be they biological parents, adoptive parents, or adoptees.  There are exceptions, but mostly we're just good folk all the same struggling to do what's best in our lives.

I know you're not the religious type, Niels, but Merry Christmas just the same.
