Parents beware: CPS/DSS trafficking children for profit
Informed Constituent (Albany, NY), The, May, 2006 by Deborah McLean
The most natural bond is between a parent and child. It is the
building block of our communities and our world. Today that bond is
being torn apart, and at the hand of a system out of control.
With the new Adoption & Safe Families Act (ASFA) law, Child Protective
Services (CPS) agencies and their affiliated "non-profit" adoption
agencies, are generously rewarded for adopting out your children whether
you are innocent or not.
In 1974, Walter Mondale promoted the Child Abuse and Prevention Act
which began feeding massive amounts of federal funding to states to set
up programs to combat child abuse and neglect. Mondale expressed
concerns that the legislation could be misused, leading states to create
a "business" in marketing our children.
In 1997, President Clinton passed ASFA to help abused and neglected
children who languished in foster care. In a press release from the U.S.
Department & Human Services dated November 24, 1999, Clinton's
initiative was said to double the number of children in foster care by
year 2002. The drive of Clinton's initiative is the offering of cash
"bonuses" to states for every child adopted out of foster care.
The time allowed for parents to retrieve children from the system has
created a tool to terminate parents' rights. They hold our children long
enough so parents miss the deadline, and even hold babies long enough to
claim that the bond is between children and their biological parents is
In a recent article titled "Santa Clara County Named in $400 million
False Claims Damages Suit over DFCS/CPS Fraud" (see www.reliableanswers.
com), it was discovered that the agency was collecting federal dollars
for children who did not even exist. Psychiatrists were also used to
assist these agencies in attaining federal funds.
Dr. Shirley Moore, the National Director of Legislative Affairs for the
American Family Rights Association (AFRA), helped to investigate 75,000
CPS cases in Los Angeles, California. It resulted in 30,000 families
being reunited due to conflicts of interest.
Dr. Moore said the biggest problem is the fact that most people are
unaware. Anyone with beautiful children should be on guard. Abuse has
taken on a new meaning today because children are viewed as a commodity
in the system. Something is seriously wrong.
The system has been designed so that everyone involved in the system
collaborates to attain the same goal--to get the child no matter what.
Why? The Almighty Dollar.
According to the Child Protective Parent Association (CPPA), for every
child Department of Social Services (DSS) adopts out, there is a bonus
of $4,000 to $6,000. "But that is just the starting figure in a complex
mathematical formula in which each bonus is multiplied by the percentage
that the state has managed to exceed its baseline adoption number,"
writes Karen Anderson of CPPA.
A report from a private think tank, the National Center for Policy
Analysis, reads: "The way the federal government reimburses States
rewards a growth in the size of the program instead of the effective
care of children."
The United States spends over $12 billion a year on "child protection",
one of the biggest businesses in our country. The money goes to tens of
thousands of state employees and to supportive professionals such as
lawyers, court personnel, court investigators, evaluators, guardians,
judges, and also to contracted vendors through DSS such as counselors,
therapists, residential facilities, foster parents, adoptive parents,
Big Brothers/Big Sisters, YMCA, etc.
The tearing apart of parent and child is worse than being lined up and
shot by Hitler's regime--You are left to live with a huge hole in your
heart. Not to mention the fury that this kind of violence perpetuates.
Start your research on the internet using the following: "CPPA what we
are about" for more information on how the system operates. See why we
have been unable to even get a response from our legislators. Perhaps
they have forgotten who funds their paychecks.
The keys are awareness and action. Get informed and do something about
the corruption in our government!

An Inconvenient Truth about Child Protective Services, Foster care, and
the Child Protection "INDUSTRY"
Child Protective Services Does not protect children...
It is sickening how many children are subject to abuse, neglect and even
killed at the hands of CPS.
every parent should read the free handbook from
connecticut dcf watch...
Number of Cases per 100,000 children in the US
These numbers come from The National Center on
Child Abuse and Neglect in Washington. (NCCAN)
Recent numbers have increased significantly for CPS
Perpetrators of Maltreatment
Physical Abuse CPS/Foster care 160, biological Parents 59
Sexual Abuse CPS/Foster care 112, biological Parents 13
Neglect CPS/Foster care 410, biological Parents 241
Medical Neglect CPS/Foster care 14 biological Parents 12
Fatalities CPS/Foster care 6.4, biological Parents 1.5
Imagine that, 6.4 children die at the hands of the very agencies that
are supposed to protect them and only 1.5 at the hands of parents per
100,000 children. CPS perpetrates more abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse
and kills more children then parents in the United States. If the
citizens of this country hold CPS to the same standards that they hold
parents too. No judge should ever put another child in the hands of ANY
government agency because CPS nationwide is guilty of more harm and
death than any human being combined. CPS nationwide is guilty of more
human rights violations and deaths of children then the homes from which
they were removed. When are the judges going to wake up and see that
they are sending children to their death and a life of abuse when
children are removed from safe homes based on the mere opinion of a
bunch of social workers.
THIS IS AMERICA'S HIDDEN HOLOCAUST
Currently Child Protective Services violates more constitutionally
guaranteed liberties & civil rights on a daily basis then all other
agencies combined, Including the National Security agency/Central
intelligence agency wiretaping programsâ€¦

Adoption Bonuses: The Money Behind the Madness
DSS and affiliates rewarded for breaking up families
By Nev Moore Massachusetts News
A recent study has found that 12-18 months after leaving foster care:
30% of the nationâ€™s homeless are former foster children.
27% of the males and 10% of the females had been incarcerated
33% were receiving public assistance
37% had not finished high school
2% receive a college degree
50% were unemployed
Children in foster care are three to six times more likely than children
not in care to have emotional, behavioral and developmental problems,
including conduct disorders, depression, difficulties in school and
impaired social relationships. Some experts estimate that about 30% of
the children in care have marked or severe emotional problems. Various
studies have indicated that children and young people in foster care
tend to have limited education and job skills, perform poorly in school
compared to children who are not in foster care, lag behind in their
education by at least one year, and have lower educational attainment
than the general population.
*Casey Family Programs National Center for Resource Family Support
80 percent of prison inmates have been through the foster care system.
The highest ranking federal official in charge of foster care, Wade Horn
of the Department of Health and Human Services, is a former child
psychologist who says the foster care system is a giant mess and should
just be blown up.
Four rigorous studies have found that at least 30 percent of Americaâ€™s
foster children could be home right now if their parents had decent housing.
These studies found thousands of children already in foster care who
would have done better had child protection agencies not taken them away
in the first place.
