Why I Started the FightCPS Website

Every day in the USA families face false accusations of child abuse. Children are frequently unjustly ripped from their families and placed in foster homes.

These families suffer extreme trauma and depression in their attempts to be together again.

FightCPS is a family rights website that seeks to assist parents and others who are falsely accused of child abuse and neglect.

Why I Help Victims of False Child Abuse Allegations

Many people have asked why I would try to help people whose children were taken away from them by Child Protective Services. Here are a few of my reasons:

  1. Many accusations of abuse or neglect are false. False accusations can come from anonymous callers, doctors, nurses, neighbors, school teachers, or even the social workers themselves. People who are falsely accused and have their children taken are devastated, and need legal information and social support. Fight CPS helps with both those needs.
  2. A large percentage of the young parents falsely accused of child abuse or neglect are impoverished, and must rely on court appointed attorneys for representation in juvenile court settings. These court appointed attorneys are notorious for doing almost nothing to help their CPS clients. They seem like they're there to guide people through the court process, but don't provide any type of aggressive defense. So my site, Fight CPS, fills in the gap by showing people how to provide their own evidence and legal paperwork.
  3. When parents are sent to juvenile court they are denied constitutional rights such as the right to a jury trial, the right to a public trial, and the right to be confronted by their accusers. Yet they stand to lose their children, one of the saddest and most heartrending losses known to humankind. This lack of constitutional safeguards leaves child detention hearings open to gross injustices, the like of which few people believe could happen in America - unless they've been through it.
  4. Federal statistics show that children in foster homes are about ten times more likely to be abused sexually, physically, emotionally, and mentally than children in their natural family homes. They are even more likely to be killed. A recent study concluded that foster children are more likely to have teen pregnancies and to become juvenile delinquents. The study said that children are better off when left with their natural families, even if those families have severe problems.
  5. Social work should be a process of helping families resolve and recover from problems, not a process of tearing families apart forever and traumatizing children for life. This imbalance in the social work profession has been caused by federal legislation that gives financial incentives in the form of federal funding and social security reimbursements when children are torn from their homes and placed in foster homes.

Activism to Help Victims of False Allegations

Child protective services (CPS) often accuses people erroneously, or takes children for trivial reasons.

This page clarifies family rights issues and explains why I choose to help families who have been torn apart by CPS, something that's happening far too often these days.

CPS false accusations are a travesty of justice, one I cannot silently ignore because I've felt the sting of false accusations made by a CPS caseworker, and resolved to try to prevent this injustice from continuing.

I haven't been able to stop it, but I have helped many families to fight the CPS injustice system and get their children back.

Sir Edmund Burke, a British statesman, said, "Evil flourishes when good men do nothing."

I believe that if everyone would choose a social issue, this one or another, and devote their lives to it, many wrongs of this world could be made right again. I have devoted myself to the cause of helping to reunite families attacked by CPS false accusations.

If you've been targeted by a Child Protective Services agent, the best thing you can do is get a good lawyer.

Next, a positive step forward is to read my site, FightCPS, and others like it.

Learn as much as you can so you can help defend yourself and help your lawyer plan an effective defense.

Collection of documentary evidence in your favor is crucial.

You can find information that may help you develop a strategy for fighting your CPS case.

Where to start?

The most important pages on the FightCPS website

This article is a quick guide to the most important pages on the FightCPS website. Read this first.

Psychotropic Drugs are Given to Foster Children

Foster children are often forced to take multiple psychotropic drugs. Foster and adoptive parents get extra "special needs" money for damaged kids, so they rush to take children to doctors known for their willingness to prescribe medications regardless of whether the child actually needs them.

This is well-documented.

Many people are aware of this now, and it is a tragic practice that could affect a foster child's brain and nervous system for life. Some children have died because of it.

They are forcing foster children onto psychotropic medications after they're traumatized by being forced to leave their families.

Read more about it here: Drugging Foster Children, where you'll find multiple tragic case histories including the testimony of former foster children.

CPS workers often violate Kinship Care rights.

If your adult child is unable to be a parent to his or her child, you may also be deprived of the right to be a grandparent.

Even though there are Kinship Care regulations in place in every state, CPS caseworkers often try to adopt children out to strangers anyway.

This book sheds light on the deprivation of the rights of grandparents.

History and Philosophy of Fight CPS

My fight against the injustices of the child welfare system has been ongoing since 1989 when my fourth child, a newborn infant, was taken from the hospital by a social worker because her father had battered me when I was pregnant. I found out first-hand what it felt like to show up at court to find a social worker's court report full of slander and lies.

In 1990 I started writing articles about CPS cases. Numerous parents came to me asking for my help in publicizing the cruelty and injustices they were enduring, including direct lies by social workers in court reports. My articles were published in The Enterprise News, a weekly newspaper in Central California owned by a kind Libertarian, Richard Palmquist, who also owned a Christian radio station. I also made a few public appearances including a call-in talk show on that radio station and a televised talk show in Fresno, California.

Next I got involved in exposing CPS using the FidoNet BBS network from 1991 through 1997. I was not as active in meeting people with open CPS cases at that time because I was busy raising my own children.

The Fight CPS website has been online since October 2000. I started it a month after starting the Child Protection Reform Yahoo Group - which I've since passed on to other owners so that I can spend more time improving Fight CPS.

I started Fight CPS because at the time, there weren't many sites on the internet that informed people about the topic of family rights. And some of the sites that already existed didn't seem to fulfill the needs of the people. For example, one large site had lots of good information, but forbade anyone from mentioning any other sites that might help. I felt this was too controlling - that the flow of information had to be free so that people could learn more from each other.

Therefore one of my main goals with Fight CPS, at the beginning, was to collect links to information, to encourage others to start sites, and to link to their sites, and promote them. To this day Fight CPS allows all family rights sites to be linked on the site.

The front page of Fight CPS is now a WordPress blog. It started out with no blog at all, on Geocities in 2000. It moved to its own domain name in 2002. In 2004 I put a Blogger.Com blog on the front page of the site. In 2007 I changed it to a WordPress blog for better search engine optimization.

An Inside View

Memoirs of a Baby Stealer: Lessons I've Learned as a Foster Mother
Memoirs of a Baby Stealer: Lessons I've Learned as a Foster Mother

This book was written by a foster parent who was shocked and dismayed to see the level of manipulation and insincerity evinced by Child Protective Services social workers she came in contact with.

Mary Callahan never intended to become a foster parent so she could write a book. She just wanted to help children. But in the end, she had to tell the story of what she learned by fostering five children; the abuses within the system were just that bad. This woman had a healthy conscience.

She wrote: "They are taking kids from places that aren't that bad, putting them in places that aren't that good, and completely ignoring the bond that exists between parent and child."'


Any Questions?

Hello. I am currently living in Indiana. About a month ago my oldest daughter who is 4 took my youngest daughter who is 1 out of her crib while i was at work. My middle child age 2 was sleeping still. I had left them in the care of my boyfriend as i normally do and came home to find the oldest watching cartoons and the youngest cuddled up with my boyfriend sleeping. a normal scenario that i came home to. no chaos just peace. he had woke up and told me what had happened with my oldest getting the baby out and showed me the mark on the babies and her face and explained that he told my daughter she cannot get the baby out of bed. i took pictures sent them through text to my mother asking if i should have the baby examined or if i was right by just keeping an eye on her. she was fine and i put a little witches hazel on her face to help with bruising. this was all on saturday morning. monday morning i have daycare reporting to cps that my children are abused and asking my oldest daughter who hit her and her sister in the eye. that evening we go to the local emergency room, i watch my children be examined and the doctor was going to let us go until the cps case worker decided to have labs xrays and ct scans done. my children were tormented. my son held down by three women screaming for me while every bone in his body xrayed resulting in 19 bruises all over his body. he is 2 and has asthma as well. my children stuck with needles and blood drawn. the doctors still find no traumas no signs of neglect or abuse cps says they need more " information' and have my children given to my mother an alcoholic and my sister investigated by the same case worker and a drug addict. we go to court and cps tries to say my daughter has a broken hip the oldest and they had not received medical records yet. mind you i went to school for occupational therapy, i know the effects of a broken hip. they still say they need more information and case continued. i need a lawyer. the court appointed lawyer non aggressive. they order my children to go through more testing this time with contrast dye. they are hooked up to IV's and have a dye that is harsh to an adults kidneys ran through them resulting in no trauma or signs of abuse. still they cannot come home. I am also my children's only living parent their father was a marine iraq war veteran. he suffered from traumatic brain injury and anxiety disorder and he passed away . now we are still battling a little over a month to have the children come home no signs of abuse, no background reports, no case in my mind. i am now out of funds due to paying for a lawyer and very stressed. any advice please.

In the state of ARIZONA I need to find out how to fight my Cps case because Someone made a false cps call to the hotline in revenge i filled a harrasment injunction on themI was falsely acused of using drugs/sailing I was contacted by Cps while pregnant still with my first baby said they had to investigate all calls to them. They came over once never heard from them again until my baby was born had to have a c section when i was tooken to the hospital by my mom I was instanly put under anastasia then woke up all dizzy couldn't get up kept fainting out they had to give me 2 blood transfusion I guess I was supposed to be at a blood count of 11 but was at a 6. Then they said my baby had amphinamines in her system and I had meth not to mention hospital treated me like dirt and neglected to take care of my baby while in the hospital couldn’t have her in my room or anything was left in a nasty diarrhea diaper for hours the rash one her legs and Ching Ching and butt was so bad you couldn't even touch her to change it or move her around it hurt her so bad the diarrhea was on her back on her clothes it was horrible.. And when I brought it to there attention they got all offensive and said "what you accusing us of neglecting your baby in that case we need to contact Cps to let them know" this was the same day a my baby was just token out of the hospital 20 minutes before they even yelled at my mom and said "grandma you believe we neglected and agree with her accusations". My baby gained wieght in my moms care in a week after getting my baby in her temperory care then in the hospital they kept getting her wieghts mixed up I could call 1 time they say 4lb 6oz then in a hour call back now she is 3lb 15oz then call back ten minutes then now at 5lb they didn’t even have her name right the whole time. When my baby got tooken out of the hospital they did a hair follicle and a UA tests on me and they came all came out negative.. Then they couldn’t find anything out on me and after a MORE THEN A FEW UA’S they called me and said I came out dirty again but did a UA next day in the morning and it was clean again.. Making me do these programs to prove something and trying to use my sisters case against me which is eralivante to mine. :/ I am very confused on what’s going on and it just seems they are fighting extra hard for my daughter even called immigration on my husband and froze his bank account and reported him to the IRS until they get his legal status.. They been trying to get us to fight since they took my daughter right out of the hospital one they discharged me but told me she needed to stay a couple days more 5 days later exact.

It sounds like you've angered them and they're retaliating, Jenette. Have you looked for an attorney to sue them for harassment?

warsaw indiana is corrupt. they purger themselves in court and get away with it. my granddaughter was found abandened in a crack house in NYC. new york cps contacted us but before we arrived to get her the other grandmother who molested her picked her up. her father is a twice convicted murderer, along with multipule drug offenses. but since i filed 2 tort claims against the county they have illegally removed grandchildren from me as my daughter lives with me as my caregiver. 12 county officers illegally searched and ransacked our house looking for business books, even being told our attorney had them. after looking for 2 hours they left laughing. they didn’t even have a warrent, when my husband got home he called and wanted a copy of the warrent. it took them 2 days to get a judge to sign one. they harrased another daughter of mine who has six children, they left warsaw to protect thier children from cps. my grandchildren are the victims of a vindictive and corrupt court system who allow these people to violate every right we have. they know im on disability and think they can walk all over us.

Good work, Mr. Booker... please keep fighting the injustice. We can't let this continue. Of course my best help ever comes from Jesus. I keep telling people we need someone with more clout and God is the most powerful ally we can appeal to. Nevertheless, please continue to do whatever you can to get legislators on board. Thanks!!

I think it is right to let a teenager go when he or she wants to make false accusations that would hurt younger siblings. There's nothing worse than living with someone who doesn't like you or doesn't want to be there! You did the right thing... even with all that transpired afterwards, you heart was in the right place.

Back in 1990 I was writing newspaper articles to try to expose CPS injustices! How times have changed since then...
