In 1986 I became a foster parent. There was an a report of me using corporal punishment. The state came in and went over the rules. All was well. After that time we adopted 3 children, We closed our home we had 5 biological children and 3 adopted children.
In 1992 my husband was accused of sexually abusing my girls. DCFS
asked me to go home and not say a word to anyone. It could mess up their investigation. I did !!!!! That was the longest night of my life. In the morning the social workers began their investigation.
No one had to ask me twice to take my children (6 left at home). All went well till sister and brother made claim for abuse ( physical ). This was not true. I was cleared. The brother gave a lot of problems in high school. He had to be taken for drug test(which
I did) Was sent to parenting classes (I did). Adopted daughter was acting out in school(sexually) School wanted her expelled (was in high school). I went to school board fought for her right for education. They sent out a teacher to do a type of home school.
She ended up Pregnant . I did not kick her out of the house. I did what I feel every mother
should do. I stood by her side. Guess when she turned 17 she moved out. DCFS came to my house asked me if I would take her back in the home. I told them I never kicked
her out. She came home for a short time then left again. In 2005 DCFS went to court giving me guardianship
2 of her children. About 2 years ago it came out that Biological brother and sister slept together. One of children I was given guardianship of was that
child. After he finds out he sleeps with his sister. He is removed from home. Now my youngest bio, daughter was doing drugs. I was keeping one of her babies. She had a dirty drug test when she went in to have baby. They did not let her take her baby home to
give her a chance to get act together. They then came and removed child I had. Daughter is in a program so far so good. DCFS said it is because of family history they wouldn't place children. They did when it was adopted children. They let me adopt after the
corporal punishment incident. Now it is a biological child they wont. My personal belief is they have no intension of returning the boys too easy to adopt them out. We have been lied lo
