A Child is Being Sold, Stolen From Mother in the Name of Covid.
Imagine for a moment that you are a single parent. You struggle every day to care for your 3-year-old child. You love him more than anything in the world.
One day, he has an accident that was not anything you could control or foresee. He fell when the wheel of a shopping cart failed, causing it to topple. He calms down quickly, but you rush to the hospital to make sure he’s ok.
When you get there, the hospital does not treat your son. They hold you against your will. The police get called, and after over 24 hours in the hospital waiting to be seen, your child is taken away by CPS.
Foster Care Abusive:
He is bounced from home to home, some that don’t even speak English, and your case managers change, sometimes week to week. You struggle to see him due to COVID, but CPS limits your visits. During your visits, it is common for you to see him with bruises and even black eyes. Your concerns are ignored.
You bend over backward to comply with every request that CPS suggests that you do. You take drug tests, even though you do not do any kind of illegal drug. You take parenting classes. You have your housing environment inspected and approved for your child to return.
CPS Illegally Adopts Out In the Name Of Covid:
Over a year later, after over a year of working toward re-unification, you find that the state is going to adopt him to another family. They did not even inform you. They told you that re-unification was still the goal.
You do research to find out why they are doing this.
Well, it is in part, because COVID has forced them to hold your child longer than they normally would. They can only keep children away from their parents for so long before they must adopt.
Also, there may be a more nefarious reason they are adopting your child. CPS workers get bonuses for every child that gets adopted. CPS itself gets up to $40,000 per child.
Your child is being sold, stolen from you, and there is very little you can do about it.
It sounds like a nightmare, doesn’t it?
To many parents across the country, this is reality.
This is not a fictional story. A Salinas mother, Tracy Gleason, is living this nightmare right now. This is her story.
