I got my precious daughter back AFTER 6 years in the system. I was lucky in some matter but we today are both in therapy 2x a week for severe P.T.S.D. the scars trapped in my daughter's mind of the abuse she went through still 8 years later plague us with memories that cause depression,sadness & extreme stress to manage moving our lives forward. THANK GOD,my precious daughter was not murdered, beaten or left to starve to death but being a survivor of domestic violence myself sometimes the bruises are not as bad as the daily words used to push your self esteem so deep down you just can't get back up. We, just like millions of other families have gone through loose there children not because there bad parents but because this is what Bill Bowen said before his death "She was a special needs child, in CPS lingo, meaning she was worth over $6,000 per month to CPS in Oregon in federal funds. CPS Oregon continued drawing that $6,000 plus per month long after that child was dead." My 2 autistic girls were autistic now I know why I was never returned my girls until after the oldest turned 18 but sadly she was so brainwashed we have had no contact in 5 yrs. she was 2 days shy of turning 12 she will turn 20 in April (If she is still alive.) My youngest was 10 and now 18 and with me but we both still struggle. She was tortured by fear and lives in it EVERY SINGLE DAY~!!!!!! CPS is a rich federal run government agency that will NEVER CEASE to die themselves~!! I move on each day by the thankfulness my youngest is back in my arms but for others there not as fortunate and my prayers are with you all.
www.aspiemomto3girls.blogspot.com is my story and I was held in contempt for this blog, going to jail a week for not taking it off the internet 8 years later it still remains and both my daughters cases are now closed because there over 18 the State of California are not paid the $6,000 or more a month~!!!!!
