FBI Investigates Baby Kidnapped from Couple in Alabama Who Declined Birth Certificate and SSN

FBI Investigates Baby Kidnapped from Couple in Alabama Who Declined Birth Certificate and SSN:

It has been almost 2 months since itinerant missionaries Christian and Danielle Holm’s newborn baby was ripped from his mother’s breast in an Alabama hospital by the Department of Human Resources (DHR). Social workers called in hospital security, police, and a sheriff’s detective after the couple declined a social security card and birth certificate for their baby. There was a case of mistaken identity, but that was easily and quickly demonstrated to be false. There was no abuse and no neglect, but that didn’t stop DHR from seizing the 1 day old infant from his parents, allegedly without a warrant, court order, or emergency circumstances.
Their baby is reportedly still in foster care.

After reading about Maurita Johnson’s appointment to the Division of Child and Family Services, I am hoping that Ms. Johnson will take on the task of cleaning up an extremely broken system that is causing far more harm to our children, and families, than good.I am one of the many grandparents, trying to cope with the corruption of Child Protective Services. Currently I am battling for the return of my granddaughter, who has been in our lives since birth. Does CPS really try to keep families together? Not in my experience. Not in mine either!

Commentary: What is to blame for our failed Child Protection System?

Commentary: What is to blame for our failed Child Protection System?:

Imagine a high-stress job with low-pay, long hours and where you were responsible for the lives of multiple children who live in potentially dangerous environments. Imagine doing this job without the proper education needed to adequately and swiftly make the observations and recommendations needed to ensure each child under your responsibility is safe. This is the reality for Child Protective Services caseworkers in Texas.

Another Christmas Eve is Here-2016

Another Christmas Eve is here,
It's now 2016,
Eleven long, painful years,
The stolen grandchildren we still haven't seen.

Their stockings are hung with their siblings,
And many cousin's too,
Still waiting for their return,
But when,we have no clue.

We don't even know if they remember us,
I'm sure they're told we didn't care,
They're probably afraid to make contact,
I'm sure they've been threatened don't dare.

How insensitive can the stranger's raising them be,
Knowing these children have REAL family,
Family that love and miss them,
Family they won't let them see.

I feel like there  really is a Grinch,
It goes by the name of CPS,
But instead of protecting children,
They make families a total mess.

So another Christmas Day we'll spend,
With three empty chairs at the table,
We pray to God we'll see them again,
We pray we'll still be able.

We hope they know we love them,
And that we always will,
We hope there will come a day,
That all three will come home,
Come home at last  to stay.

Love, Grammy

Sununu says many solutions needed to address DCYF issues

Sununu says many solutions needed to address DCYF issues | New Hampshire:
CONCORD — Staffing upgrades in the next state budget and changes in state law need to happen to improve the care of abused children, Gov.-elect Chris Sununu said Tuesday.

My comment:"He’s also met with DCYF staffers, who complain that existing definitions in state law and the actions of state judges prevent them from moving forward on what they suspect."Have the NH Legislator's made it that difficult to simply remove children from homes for "Suspected" abuse without proof of any wrongdoing? Or no abuse or neglect at all, but "anticipated" neglect in the future? Thank's to the Legislature, DCYF is no longer removing every child when a report is called in, be it false or true. No longer is every child considered to be in "imminent danger", immediately taken from their families and never returned. Are we going to take ten steps back now because DCYF and the Family Court's are finally following "some" of the Federal mandates? Will "relative placement" again be a thing of the past? Will ALL families again be treated as guilty from the onset of a case? The two children mentioned died because DCYF is too busy making cases against innocent families instead of focusing on children suffering from REAL abuse. Instead of spending more money, the dead wood Supervisor's that have been there for year's should be replaced. The Supervisor's are the ones giving the order's that the caseworker's have to follow. The Family Court Judges are now just that. Family Court Judges. No longer are they Judges who just sit in on any and all cases. No longer are they all bias against ALL parents and families.

DCYF investigated about 10 cases of abuse involving Nashua mom prior to daughter's death | New Hampshire

DCYF investigated about 10 cases of abuse involving Nashua mom prior to daughter's death | New Hampshire:
NASHUA — Prior to the 2014 death of 3-year-old Brielle Gage, the New Hampshire Division for Children Youth and Families investigated about 10 cases of abuse and neglect allegedly at the hands of her mother, according to Jeffery Strelzin, assistant attorney general.

My Comment:
I will never understand why in God's name, DCYF and the Family Court  returned Brielle and her siblings to their Mother while Felony child abuse charges were pending. I also don't understand their reasoning behind ALL of the other many children, whose parent's are proven innocent in Criminal Court of child endangerment charges,the children unharmed, why Family Court charges are never dropped and the children never returned.
The death of this precious little girl should never have happened and if the State had given custody to her Grandmother, like they should have, she would be alive today.
This has nothing to do with enacting new Law's, but everything to do with abiding with the Law's we already have in place.
R.I.P. Brielle.

NH Supreme Court sides with mother over state in parental rights fight | New Hampshire

NH Supreme Court sides with mother over state in parental rights fight | New Hampshire:

LYNN, J. The respondent, the mother of a minor child, appeals the order of the Circuit Court (Weaver, J.) terminating her parental rights over the child. See RSA ch. 170-C (2014 & Supp. 2015). On appeal, the mother argues that the trial court erred by: (1) granting the petition brought by the petitioner, the New Hampshire Division of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF), to terminate her parental rights while the direct appeal of her underlying criminal conviction was pending; and (2) finding that termination of her parental rights was in the best interest of the child. We reverse and remand.

http://www.courts.state.nh.us/supreme/opinions/2016/2016078st.pdf


My Comment: I can't believe my eyes reading this article. This has to be a first in NH!

First off, this case is reversed and remanded because the Mother's felony assault conviction of the child is on pending appeal. For the life of me I will never understand how parent's whose Criminal child endangerment charges are dropped, (because in Criminal Court evidence proving innocence is admitted) whereas evidence proving innocence in NH Family Courts are NEVER allowed admitted and the child is NEVER returned.

The State can terminate a parents rights when they are sentenced to long term confinement and won't be eligible for parole for at least six years. I'm curious as to how long this rule has been in effect knowing that other's confined for as little as 18 months have their rights terminated. And to top it off, the convictions have nothing to do with their stolen child!

Found it: https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubPDFs/groundtermin.pdf      
 Current Through January 2013

Another common ground for termination is a felony conviction of the parent(s) for a crime of violence against the child or another family member. Also, a conviction for any felony that results in a long term of incarceration and requires the child to enter foster care because of a lack of alternatives may also constitute a ground for termination of parental rights.

Should You Adopt a Child When the Birth Parents Have Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar Adoption | Adoption Situation - Lifetime Adoption:

It is believed that genetics do play a part in if a person will develop bipolar, though most relatives of a person afflicted with this illness will never develop bipolar disorder. If one parent has bipolar disorder, the risk to offspring is approximately five percent. It can be as high as 14 percent if other relatives, such as an aunt or uncle, also are diagnosed. In the unusual case where both parents have bipolar disorder, the risk to offspring is approximately 30 percent, but can increase slightly if other relatives are bipolar too. 

Impact of Adoption on Adopted Persons

Impact of Adoptionon Adopted Persons

As discussion of the adoption process becomes
more open and accepted in American society,
and as more Americans have experience with
adoption, there is also more attention focused on
those involved in adoption—the adopted person,
the birth parents, and the adoptive parents (often
referred to as the adoption triad or the adoption
constellation). This factsheet examines the impact
of adoption on adopted persons who have reached
adulthood.

Panel is told that child protection statute misses point

Dave Solomon's State House Dome: Panel is told that child protection statute misses point | New Hampshire:
THE LEGISLATIVE PUSH to revise the state's child protection statute to become more child-friendly began in earnest on Friday, as the Commission to Review Child Abuse Fatalities in New Hampshire heard from a prominent pediatrician and the leader of the group that advocates for children in potentially abusive situations.


My comment: Up until just a few years ago, after the NH Legislature got involved, EVERY child was taken from their parent's and families and never returned. It didn't matter if the reports were true or false. Even proven false reports didn't matter and evidence proving innocence was never allowed into Court. A parent could have criminal charges dropped in Criminal Court due to evidence proving innocence, but Family Court would never drop the charges. All DCYF had to say was the child was in imminent danger, without proof of any wrongdoing and bam, the child was taken. Taken for stupid reason's, nothing even close to the three cases of these children. Frivolous, pathetic reasons. Services to at risk families before Foster care didn't exist. As for reunification, that was unheard of, and so was Relative placement. And parents and families were never afforded  Due Process.  Did anyone ever stop and think that the reason for this new found DCYF behavior is because DCYF failed two Child and Family Services Reviews and were in jeopardy of losing Federal funding for not following Federal mandates? After all the work the NH Legislature has done to protect parent's, families and their children, why should the State take ten steps back because DCYF didn't do their job and protect these children? They knew what was going on. These were cases of clear abuse, not something frivolous where the children should have been left in their homes.Vermont may want to rethink the way they handle their cases. They could also be in jeopardy of losing their Federal funding.

Comparison of Adoption Subsidy and Foster Care Payment Receipt

Comparison of Adoption Subsidy and Foster Care Payment Receipt | ASPE:

The relationship between foster care payments with federal matching funds and adoption subsidies with federal matching funds was examined to determine whether variations in the use of federal matching adoption subsidies were related to state variations in establishing children's IV-E eligibility at the time of entry to foster care. Table A-6 shows that 74.3 percent of adopted children receive subsidies while only 48.3 percent of children in nonrelative foster care placements receive payments with federal matching funds. Examination of state data shows us that only 11 states reported the proportion of adopted children with federally-supported subsidies was within 10 percent of the proportion of foster children with federal matching payments.

Comparison of Adoption Subsidy and Foster Care Payment Amounts

Comparison of Adoption Subsidy and Foster Care Payment Amounts | ASPE:

For adoption subsidies funded by Title IV-E, the subsidy amount is capped at the level of the foster care payment that a family would receive on behalf of a child. However, adoption subsidy rates that are set lower than foster care payments could represent a disincentive for foster families to adopt a child if foster parents are concerned about whether they could meet a child's needs after adoption. To assess whether this potential barrier exists, we compared the median adoption subsidy amounts with the median amount received by children in foster care on a national and state level.

Today is National Child Stealing Day!

Today is the day where ALL your stolen by the State children, thank's to Hillary and Bill's Adoption and Safe Families Act, are adopted out to the States "Chosen" faux pas parent's. Stranger's, being paid blood money to hold your children hostage. To brainwash them, often drug them and raise them as the State see's fit. Stolen from families due to false reports and other deceitful means. Many unabused, non neglected children of innocent parent's and families. Where the States adopt out as many children as possible, while the States count the dollars each child brings in to their State, via Title IV funding, Federal incentive money. Where Federal mandates aren't followed, Relative Placement isn't allowed and Due Process in Family Court is unheard of.
Cherish and hold on to your children. Don't let your children suffer the same fate as so many other's  have already!
