Fraudulent Removal and Placement
I am not the biological mother. However, I am vested to them as a mom to my fiancee’s two minor children
Our story, is different than others
It starts with trying to get Child A (11 year old) a psychological evaluation. Due to Covid-19 it was denied.
Child A, had developed a very disturbing homicidal and suicidal behavior with the last exit of the biological mother. We lost pet’s, I was hospitalized after ingesting rice she laced with mop soap.
Child A’s Aunt on father’s side then involved herself. She felt that we simply could not handle the situation. She began to incite the same mental and physical abuse she had used in the past to control Child A.
With witnesses on two separate occasions in the week leading up to Child A’s hospitalization. She made surprise pop up visits in which she would scream literal death threats, force her to watch other people eat but not allow to join, name calling, pokes to the chest and emotional abuse. This is all documented by the aunt herself via messenger as if attempting to brag.
The day Child A was admitted the aunt was waiting for the father to leave (he was to get rid of her before her next visit). Aunt called Child A in as a suicide attempt to 911 to force her removal. I was not allowed in due to not being the legal guardian and Aunt was shocked she was not either. Proceeding to make a scene in the ER that she was the Aunt and had a claim.
The admittance process was humiliating as both her father and I were kept separate treated as criminals. The intake nurse absolutely refused to look at the file that contained over 125 photos of evidence. She admitted, after 2 hour’s of sleep, after the 14 hour process, war is at our door.
No identification, wearing a Peoria County Sheriff’s shirt she invites herself in. Stating after already in the home that she was an investigator for DCFS Samantha Lambert. And that she was there to document and confirm our claims. As she insisted that the psychologist was ready to discharge the child and she was doing us a favor by holding her in the hospital.
While in our home, she made several references ” Not to be judgmental, is that a Trump flag on the table?” ” Not to be judgmental, are you Pagan? Just trying to be culturally appropriate.” She was more concerned with our political views, religious beliefs, and Conservative home-school curriculum that we had chosen and also protected by Peoria Home-school Secular.
Than documenting evidence of Child A’s hoarding of garbage, food, mice and overall destruction of a home. Which made our home inadequate and a potential safety hazard. She left Child B in place, asked us to correct Child A’s living conditions and she would be back for a home safety check.
She never returned, she failed to communicate with the biological father making claims he didn’t need to be informed of any chats via text, call or even any home visits. Samantha Lambert was the only one whom received the photo evidence, she called all of Child A’s medical decisions. We were simply not informed of most of the treatments.
As of today, Cassie the Case Manager admitted that this evidence had been withheld from everyone involved. Child B, was removed June 3rd as Samantha had called late June 2nd and revised her safety plan via speaker phone to us. She was removing Child A from a mental healthcare unit and placing her with the Aunt to ensure the safety of the family and pet’s.
Dad was immediately against this placement as Aunt had been abusive in the past and before hospitalization.
This is not how it occurred…
Samantha sat in her vehicle across the street and watched me for a good 30 or so minutes. As I was letting the dog’s out, then using household scissors to cut a rose per request of Child B as it was his rose bush. As I approached the front of the house to city police cruisers fly in screaming for me to drop my weapon ( household scissors and a flower) with their hands on theirs. Terrified and confused I complied ( this occurred during the riots) They informed me that body cams we’re on and that I had a weapon.
My instant response was ” We are Republicans, We are actually backing you.” I then turned to Samantha and asked “What the Hell?”
As, she replied she needed Child B that I had to go in and force him out. When asked if she had a order she replied ‘No, this is from a emergency letter from Dr. Perez that Child A state’s that it’s not safe for Child B, it’s my supervisors, supervisor.” I again asked one more time for an order she stated she could go get one.
In a desperate attempt to keep Child B safe from the same placement I asked if Child B could be placed with my family as my sister is married to a DCFS investigator Ashley King. She actually stated yes, that she and Ashley we’re on the same page as Samantha trained her.
Trying to cram all of this in, my own sister and her wife worked hand in hand to create a nightmare for us. We were never notified we were being investigated.
We have a live in witness that was never interviewed. Assuming due to him being Hispanic.
All credible witnesses we’re dismissed. No communication from Samantha. Aunt cut off communication immediately.
We did not receive the correct paperwork and location for biological dad to make it to the first appearance. The investigation letter came on the 8th for inadequate environment and food. However, both of the above are even clearly outlined in the amended petition to remove Child B that Child A was actually responsible for those claims.
The city has harassed us, issuing a “work order” and $200 fine not to cut the grass but to take down our tree line and plants along the house including Child B’s rose bush, a charcoal SUV actually sits in our yard and stares into the home.
After being notified that we hired a private attorney. A juvenile detective has been trying to make an in person appointment. In which she gives no information to us, only that it regards Child A. She state’s she’s not obligated to tell us anything. “I don’t make indications, I make arrests.
They did indicate Samantha failed to inform us of this officially, no paperwork it was the case manager’s slip. The longer they are in Kinship Care with Aunt more indications are added.
Example: Child A, has a benzodiazepine in her system… However, she has not been in our care since May. Child A can describe said benzodiazepine to a T a small white pill.
I find this interesting due to after being hospitalized my primary care physician thought the incident of vomiting blood was elevated stress from school and Child A’s behaviors. As nobody thought to test for household cleaners and no medical explanation as to why I became so ill by the ER, Primarily and their Gastrointestinal Specialist. I was in fact prescribed a benzodiazepine, prilosec, Zofran and Hydroxyzine to prevent what they thought was a stress related episode. However, my prescription does not match Child A’s description in color and shape.
My primary has established this to Samantha and the pharmacy as well and are now growing both annoyed and alarmed refusing to speak with them without their team of lawyer’s as they feel obligated to point out that DCFS or Dr. Perez neglected Child A’s mental health. As they assess the evidence and have not been documenting objectivity for a year and a half on the child creating stress and hazardous situations in the home.
They immediately put both the father and I in counseling with a social worker in the office for trauma and emotional distress due to DCFS and coping skills involving everything from Child A’s alarming treatment to the families constant worry and concern for Child B’s safety.
I know this is A LOT and almost unbelievable but bear with me, this situation has literally tore two families apart mine stands completely divided even as my sick mother is trying to reunite us before she passes. The only witness they took any credibility to is my sister whom is married to Samantha’s coworker she literally trained Ashley King to be corrupt. As me and my sister have had no standing relationship since 2016 the year a election divided our family. This system is so corrupt that my sister and Ashley King have Kinship care of my grandson, whom in retaliation on us fighting the system have stopped all visits between my grandson and his parents.
His story is Covid related but this is still a conflict of interest is it not? I have to withdrawal from my BSN degree that I was currently working on, and cannot use any of my certifications to work due to being in healthcare. Dad is currently holding 5 to 6 16 hour shifts in a steel mill to pay attorney fees our lives have been turned upside down over petty political and religious judgments? Samantha Lambert is an endangerment to children.
It’s July 7th, we go to court at 9 a.m. tomorrow but today we had a breakthrough. I managed to record 15 minutes of a conversation between the case manager Cassie, dad and I, in this she indicates Samantha and herself as she openly admits on recording that no background screening or drug testing is required to place children in foster care as we are heard pleading to test the entire house the children are placed in. She admits to the Aunt having open investigations in the past and this is also perfectly ok and the right thing to do by the children is to require literally nothing to foster a child. She admits to not being aware of photo evidence that would of been beneficial to Child A’s mental health treatment and also the biological mom’s rights to custody against dad’s will and advice.
For example: Neglect- She abandoned them at a early age with no regard for even a phone call is fit parenting to Cassie and Samantha. Biological Mom’s multiple suicide attempts are understandable to Cassie and Samantha accidentally causing harm during one of these breakdowns to Child A is fit parenting. Child A having Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and abandonment issues that may of led to these behaviors is fit and acceptable behaviors.
Dad was offered a supervised visit today by Cassie I was not allowed as in the recording as well she claimed Child B did not want to see me. Dad went confused by this to uncover that when asked in front of Cassie he stated that Aunt Ne’Ne had told him he was not allowed. Cassie was then shown for the first time the photos of our story and is now in “agreeance” that the investigation was personal and not done properly. That the aunt is in violation of Kinship Care for coercing the children what to say. All the way to telling dad they we’re no longer in her care and did not know where they had been taken.
As of the eve before court she has “appeared to flip her judgement in less than an hour. I am now supposedly allowed to call both children and a scheduled visit at the Zoo next Thursday with Child B, dad and I.
Today, is the first time any contact was allowed and at least dad could see his child but there is a problem. They lie, lie and lie some more. Tomorrow could be a ending of us being cuffed and held without due process or we have got them in a corner we will find out!
Thank you, for bearing through our very long story but these details need to be shared among parents. Constitutional rights need to be upheld by our governors and government worker’s they take an oath same as we do in healthcare ” Never intentionally do harm.” I am invested in these children and I’m not going away DCFS, not until the corruption ends with every single child or parent subject to you’re abuse of power!
Thank you, and best of luck from our family to yours we believe you, we are standing with you.
