New York – A British mom is still suffering through a nightmare that began one year ago on a vacation to the Big Apple – when the city’s child-welfare agency seized her daughters after she took ill, and put into a database information that prevents her from becoming a foster mother. After Yvonne Bray contracted pneumonia during a Christmas-week shopping trip last year, her teenage daughters were held in a group home for 30 hours by the Administration for Children’s Services, and she was hit with charges of abuse and neglect.

    Child welfare agencies have too much power.

    Child welfare agencies are POSs that do absolutely nothing but ruin good families. They have way too much power to do what they do, and nobody questions a damn thing they do. They take kids from families first and ask questions later, then make it a nightmare to get kids back even when proven that their BS allegations are false.

    I totally agree with the above comments. Welfare agencies know that some people are just bad parents and then let it go at that, and yet they won’t hesitate to take kids away from good parents who’ve been turned in by someone who misunderstood a situation.

    While I agree that this is par for the course with government employees I also know that stories like this are popular with the people because it does not reflect how many children ARE saved from abusive/dangerous situations. The ration is nearly 1000:1 the last time I looked a few years ago nation wide. So, for every 1000 kids this happens to 999 are saved. Not bad odds.

    Ask yourself… when was the last time YOU made a mistake and was it broadcast all over the world. Granted, most of your mistakes do not affect a person to this magnitude; however, all too many people that think the way of CPS/ACS or what ever you call it in your area are quick to blast these kinds of stories but refuse to admit or even acknowledge the fact that they are being two-faced about this kind of thing. Strive for perfection realize you will fail even with your best efforts.

    Where the hell are you getting your facts? I think you are an idiot, who probably works for a CPS. I would guess its more closer to for every kid saved, 3 families are screwed up.

    Well at least the “idiot” makes a reasoned argument — doesn’t just throw out gratuitous insults, wild guesses, or unsubstantiated slanders. I do not know who is right or wrong or what the facts about CPS stats may be, but out of the last two posts the “idiot” has a lot more credibility – not because of his POV, but simply because the “idiot” argues like an adult not like a surly 14 year old.

    Well said, Ed. I had a scary run-in with CPS when my baby was discovered to have broken ribs. Definitely felt the fear of losing my child over something I did not do. BUT, I was glad to know that they stepped in quickly on behalf of my child. If my child were in an abusive situation they were on top of it! Yes, it sucks for those families that are “screwed up” by mistakes, but I’d much rather see these agencies kept in place to protect our children from evil.
