Police Stalk Defenseless Mother in Connecticut
I would like to give my story anonymous please. I’m from Connecticut. I moved here from Niagara Falls NY 2018. I got into a relationship with a man and woman. Things did not work well. DCF got called saying my kids were in danger, because we had an argument. The police put down DV which there was never.
The man I was involved with, DCF advised me that he was a registered pedophile. When I checked Connecticut records he wasn’t in the system.
They told me not to have my kids around him. While I was at work one day he came over my house. The kids let him in to get his credit card. He left, he was arguing with his then wife. Who had left him she moved back to NY. She called the police in Connecticut to tell them she was being beaten by him. The police picked me up from my work so I could let them into my place and of course I had no idea he was there.
They found him hiding in my attic. I yelled at him afterwards for being there. After that DCF had cops coming to my place mornings, noon and night. Just to search my place and he was never in my home. I would go to Walgreens down the street. He’d be there. The police would come and harass me. Saying that they had a call that he was in my house. The police would knock on all my neighbors doors. Asking questions. The 2 neighbors across the street told the police that he will wait for me across the street. To bring him dinner or clean clothing because I kicked him out. He was homeless.
Then another time. DCF called the police when I was walking down the street with him. Saying that he was in my house, the police came. Told me to go into a different room. While they questioned my children. Asking if he was in the house and my kids told them no.
My youngest child has autism. I cut his hair one day. He said it was like how his “dad” (my ex) does it. I said yeah it is. He went to school and the teacher asked him who did his hair well he said his dad did. So police came again. I said here we go again check the house he isn’t here like the 6 other times you all checked.
They told me they weren’t there to check this time they were there for my kids.
I cussed them out. They told me they were only going to take them for 3 days. Went behind my back got a court order to take my kids away from me.
When they took my kids on hear say, I went down hill. Lost everything the place I rented and my job. I was lost without my kids.
So I was homeless with my ex. DCF wanted me to do steps to get my kids back, okay whatever it takes. I did drug test, passing. I did a counseling group. They put me in with my kids, I went to the Susan B. Anthony for woman who were abused. For counseling but they denied me. I knew the red flags. DCF had no right to make me do that they said.
I got a room in the ymca. But I had no way to get to my kid’s. My kids mean everything to me. So I gave up my room to see them.
DCF said I choose to be homeless. They twisted the truth again. I found 2 jobs and found a place to live. I tried to do counseling but it was too hard to do with 2 jobs. And find a spot for counseling sessions 2x a week.
They said I was putting my own needs before my kids. This was their steps for me so I gave up one of my jobs to continue counseling. They (DCF) was helping me get on track with an apartment. So I can get my kids back but they pulled the rug out from underneath me.
I have been doing everything that they have asked me to do. But they keep finding reasons and excuses to take my kids away from me. On hear say, my kids were taken. Each day and night my heart breaks and cries for them. DCF is getting their big fat paycheck for taking my kids. My youngest keeps telling them he wants to come back to me but their not listening to him.
