My children were taken after I took my baby (6 weeks) to the hospital. It was found out her father had hurt her. They took my children. I kicked him out and he went to prison. I didn't get my kids back. The abuser and I had the EXACT same chance to get her back and I had a chance to get my other 2 back. There was no danger in my house. I was questioned by cops unrecorded and denied a lawyer or mental health professional and then preceded to tell me I was a horrible mom because I went to sleep after 3 days of not sleeping, (I have PTSD caused by being in foster care myself) all in front of my cps case worker.
My name is Anna Seidl and I am a senior in high school who is writing an argument paper in my college class on the corruption of CPS. My mother, 4 younger siblings and I were attacked multiple times by this terrifying system, even though we were completely innocent. My mother took us and ran. I am supposed to write my paper on only one section of the corruption and then talk about a group or groups that are trying to fight it.
