Helpless-Aunt December 06, 2006 10:52 AM
hello, Iv been calling myself helpless-aunt. Guess because thats what I feel like. Getting more disgusted every day. I live in WV. and have been fighting for Justice for my 7yr.old great-nephew & 3yr.old niece. I cant believe how ignorant our laws are! I understand now why so many children are being abused. The children are being starved to death,beaten,drown in their own bathtubs,thrown in rivers&lakes and too many more to list.. It does not stop!! The abuse cycle does not stop. Who suppost to be protecting these children? My niece&nephew was taken from their parents by the State for years of abuse/neglect. Many people reported them, family,neighbors,teachers even doctors numerous times. But it took the State years to step in to help these children. The 7yr.old had to first be placed in a mental hosp. for children before he could be placed anywhere else. So these kids went through some serious abuse before they got any help. The mother signed over both children to the State,divorced the father and got remarried. The father signed over his 7yr.old son but not the 3yr.old. Neither parent was prosecuted for the abuse. Father was put on a Parental Rehab.Plan set up by C.P.S. and the Judge to gain back custody of this child. Their nuts!! Someone in C.P.S. did not do their job at protecting these children. We have wrote& called everone,Gov. Social Services,ect.. They dont want to get involved so they give me diffrent people to call. It just goes on And on.. Having a very hard time just finding a lawyer thats willing to fight the state. This story can keep going so I wont give you all the details for now. If anyone has any advice I would be great-full.. I cant let him get this child back and abuse her again.. But Im not sure what to do next!! PLEASE HELP!!
