My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: california
I am besides myself with outrage and grief over what C.P.S has done.My friend had an anonymous complaint filed with CPS.The worker visited and told Greta(pseudonym) that she didn't see a problem but she would set up a meeting in order to get Greta help with everything from grief counselling to housing.I should mention that these are her grand daughters,her daughter was found murdered a little over a year ago.
Greta was in the process of moving in with me until she could find a space to rent for her 5th wheel.That Tuesday Greta took the girls to the "meeting",I got a phone call from CPS saying the had some questions for me about Greta.They asked me what I knew about her encounters with the justice system,how did she take care of the girls,did I know if she did illegal drugs.She went on to say that CPS was considering removing the girls from her custody while they conducted the investigation but if they approved of my living arrangements they could stay with me.They brought the girls over and said that Greta could visit them for as long as she wanted but she could not stay the night.
The worker came over that Friday saying that CPS was waiting for the drug test result and would not get it until Tuesday.She mentioned a 3 month program CPS might set up for Greta and that the living arrangement would remain the same til further notice.Yesterday CPS came and said they were taking the girls,Greta wasn't here.I asked to see a court order ,he said they didn't need one.There is a detention hearing Friday.What can I expect? I love those girls like my own.
