Petition the Government……

April 28, 2019

Dear President Donald J. Trump: 
Dear Sen. Ron Wyden : 
Dear Sen. Jeff Merkley : 
Dear Rep. Suzanne Bonamici : 

Families are being abused by State CPS and Family Courts through out the United States of America, this is a major issue that needs to be addressed, Families that have had their civil rights violated through family court proceedings and the fact that all due process and constitutional rights are violated and manipulated by family court judges, District Attorneys, and Commissioners of /social services departments as well as CPS workers, and court appointed attorneys that are not working for the clients but have helped incriminate parents. Also of extreme interest, is obtaining names/phone/location of CPS workers who are falsifying or have falsified documents in court and who have lied in a court setting. The people of New York State and the People of the United States of America demand a full investigation of all departments, and the termination of department until further the people also wish to sue for government entrapment as well as a suit brought against the case workers, family court judges, and district lawyers. The People through discovery have found:

1. The imbalance of funding is creating corruption

2. Corruption has filtered through all manner of government and related agencies

3. Judicial decisions violate the public trust

4. Laws are created and passed that give parens patriae unlimited power not provided by the Constitution

5. The pendulum has swung to create a monopoly strategy of funding extracted from dwindling Social Services that have been set up to help families in need is devastating families across America

6. Children’s lives are at stake while in the care of government funded agencies, such as rape, sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect, mental abuse, and statistics show our children are being killed while in government placements out side of the parental home/or close relatives 

7. That the states are not following guidelines placing children with relatives but are screening them out using different criteria with foster families, or falsifying documents to entrap parents and not keeping the children in the home with parents but removing the children without due process or any true purpose other then to incriminate parents/family members and to insure family is unfit

8. That pockets of tyranny are going unchecked without recourse

9. Congress local government/ civil and family courts is not responsive to The People

10. That The People have been turned away from civil courts, and from family courts higher court of appeals, only to remain battered and bruised by the tyranny of these local government funded courts as the judges, case workers/commissioners and district attorneys mock the outraged parents and children of which they so willingly strip of their civil rights and liberties 

The People are declaring a public health crisis and human rights violation as well as their Civil rights are being stripped and taken from them and their families, as a result of these above atrocities and also In addition, The People find the Parens Patriae to be more than a doctrine but a specialized position created by the government for the government that violates Article 1 Sec 9, 10: No title of nobility or honors shall be granted by the United States. The title extends to the courts, Childrens Administration and public education violating Amendment 14 depriving persons of life, liberty and property without due process. The position applies as a collective.

The People are ordering an investigation of the departments as well as Family courts through out the United States of America and most important in New York State the people of the United States ask that all family court files,case files, court tapes, and videos be put into the investigation, as well as there be a federal lockdown on all CPS and family courts so that no tampering of documents can be done by such agencies, the fact is family court documents will show the fact that they are mishandled and manipulated by these agencies to insure incriminating charges are inevitable and due process is not being carried out, civil rights are violated, all human rights are violated and the United States Constitution is not on the agenda of these agencies. And the people of the United States of America are being abused by these powers.

I have been dealing with CPS, unfortunately, since I moved to Oregon from California late 2017. Since I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2016; as well as having spinal surgery due to partial paralysis, I decided to start fresh in Oregon with my 7 year old son. We moved in with distant family. And within 2 months, for the first time in my single motherhood years, I was faced with CPS at my doorstep. They were their because of false allegations about me that were never substantiated or even investigated. My son`s father and the bi-polar wife of my cousin, Jared; whom we were staying with in Oregon briefly, made up a story about me that turned into an entire case full of lies. The case was based upon nothing except false allegations from a CPS documented, “unstable individual”, that, ” Is the cause of the child’s emotional distress”. Reports were made by a bi-polar, alcoholic, one of whom conspired against me with Sebastian’s father; to allow my son into the custody of the state, so he could then gain custody. Had he gone through the trouble to file, or communicate with me about it, the court would not be so kind to his requests. Considering his record, and absentee role as a father thus far. The case was handled completely incorrectly and illegally. I have also started a petition on this site, and thousands of others have as well. This very unstructured, abusive, and corrupt child’s welfare system, will ultimately be the downfall of our future leaders. To be torn from a comfortable, and loving life, as a child, and thrown into a whirlwind of injustice and confusion, is frightening, and heartbreaking to go through, for all involved. It destroys families, it causes harm on so many levels, and instead of helping families and children, it destroys every vulnerable piece left of them. I am one of millions suffering from the hands of the most disruptive, corrosive, and unlawful system governing our lives. Not one parent in the world, feels safe from this shadow force. The problems lie all within the entire juvenile justice system, and does not fall on one particular department. I lost my son to his father, for absolutely no reason except made up case files that condemned me; and to this day I have had no contact with my son due to parental alienation. He was shipped to North Carolina by the will of my lying case worker, Lauren Fields, Beaverton Oregon branch. There was no court order to take my son away from me, no warrant. There was no court order, or due process that determined that my son was to be sent away from me. No matter how diligent I have been with my formal complaining about the injustice, and government officials involved with my case; not one person has tried to locate my son for me, or assure me that he is alright. What his father is doing is completely illegal, he was granted this opportunity because the case slipped through the cracks. I am still listed as the custodial parent, and now I will have to pay exuberantly for legal assistance, just to put things back the way they were before this started. If the Child Protection Services had done their job, on any level, in any respect, in my case, this would never had happened. The way it was carried out was discriminatory and blatantly wrong. I had an expert witness that was not allowed to testify at my dependency hearing. It was because his testimony alone, would have destroyed the entire case with simple facts, and obvious disregard on CPS’ part, to the reality of the situation. To this day, I am waiting for my case to finish the appeal process, and my son has no idea what happened to his mommy. I was recently called by his father, before I was blocked from contacting him again, and threatened to never speak to my son again. He told me that I am in need of mental rehabilitation, and until I check into a facility for that, he plans to keep Sebastian out of my life. This situation is one of the most severely mishandled cases that could ever happen by the hands of the government. Cases like mine are causing Americans so much pain, on such a grand scale, and the death, torture, and abuse that it’s, in turn, allowing our very own kids to endure, can all be prevented. How many children have to fall victim to CPS’ hands, before change and accountability happen? Are we so easily disregarded, and considered dispensable in this era? Raising children is tough enough, having your own life taken from you, during the struggle of life, is a game changer. It is a life changing event that has no light at the end of the tunnel. It shows no promise for the future generations, and it is causing more harm than good. Please help make changes to the way CPS handles their business. Please take immunity away from them, please make sure the employed government officials that have committed crimes against innocent families, are heald responsible. Please give children in America, a chance to succeed, thrive and be loved. The one thing in this world that has the power to save us all, is love. There can never be too much love, please stop allowing love to dissipate at an alarming rate, here in our wonderful country. I will never give up hope, and I will continue to fight the system until Sebastian is home with me, where he belongs. 

Sincerely,

A new start

Since Sebastian was very young, he was a defiant child. Raising him on my own, and without financial help from his father was very difficult, so we moved a lot. Most of the time we spent was together, doing art, playing outside, doing homework, reading, or playing with Legos. We were a team, best friends, and support for each other. He is an old soul and is wise for his age. While he attended preschool, he was asked to leave 6 separate preschools. The teachers didn’t have the knowledge or capacity to assist when he had difficult behavior. I had to quit working due to the calls mid-day from his school to come pick him up; at least three times weekly. I was a supervisor at a cleaning company. My job from that point on was to find a program that would help my very bright, creative 4 year old little boy. His father and my family did not have a clue what was going on, due to their lack of communication. I was doing this alone, as it had always been before. I went to the head of the school board in Sonoma County and she initiated an IEP. Just prior to this, he was asked to leave one last school, Kiwi Preschool. This is where Dr. Kliman came into our lives. I sought out this school because he was there as a part his Reflective Network Therapy with children. As a child psychologist and compassionate, professional, and experienced MD, and advocate, he became a friend. Sebastian was able to open up with Dr. Kliman’s help, and Sebastian began coming into touch with his feelings, and how to express them safely and with proper actions. Unfortunately, Sebastian was asked to leave this school also, over a misunderstanding. Although he was starting to thrive; I had to resort to a new direction. When Mike entered our lives things got easier financially and he loved us both the same. When Sebastian finally let Mike in, they became best buds. He was the first father figure he had and we continued to stay in a loving relationship for 3 years. Early 2016 I began to loose my ability to use my legs. Then, one morning I was completely paralyzed from the waist down. My folks tried to bring a wheelchair up to my second story apartment. But we ended up having to call for an ambulance to drive me to the local hospital for an MRI. The results were unknown, but urgent. I was then rushed to UCSF ICU, neurology department for emergency Spinal Decompression surgery. The next day, when the specialist was in, he looked at my x-rays and told me that I have another surgery to undergo. This one was going to take 8 hours, and they were going to replace a vertebra with a titanium vertebra and also remove a tumor wrapping around my spinal cord. I was, at that time, diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer with Metastasized to the bone and spine. I was in shock, but not frightened. I was in the best place possible for this to have happened, UCSF has a very successful neurology team, and I felt the spirit of my grandma. After a successful surgery, I spent 2 full weeks in the ICU at UCSF. I was then sent back home, to Santa Rosa California, Memorial Hospital Rehab Facility to gain the ability to walk again. This took 3 weeks, Sebastian had to live with my folks. During that time, Sebastian couldn’t see me or talk to me; until I was moved back to Santa Rosa rehab facility. He was unsure if I was going to walk again, or going to die. Knowing I have a disease that can literally take my life, he had a hard time adjusting when he came back home to me. It was heartbreaking to see how concerned he was so for my wellbeing. He was always asking, “mom, are you ok?” Sometimes for no reason, at least 10 times a day. We were able to get back to a regular life and as time passed, Mike and I began to struggle with our relationship. Partly due to my medically induced menopause, and also because we started using methamphetamine on occasion. I soon found out he was using it more and more and I realized, quickly, that I had to get us away from the man I so loved; in order to keep my son safe. I made the decision to move us to live with my cousin and his family in Oregon.
While living with the Hundt family, we all got along and we never argued. Jennifer had I confided in each other and I told her I was a recovering addict, she confirmed that I was in a safe place to get clean. About two months later I was moving into our new place, it was the Hundt`s annual Halloween party. I hung out with the kids, sober, and the hosts maintained a child friendly party environment by keeping the drugs and alcohol outside on the back porch. And as I had never had a bad encounter with them before, an argument started over a kitten that evening after the guests went home. I went to ask Sebastian if he wanted to stay the night with the other children; still in their costumes, and kissed him goodbye. Since the argument started Jennifer was completely drunk and threatened to call the police on me, she called 911 after I left. When they came for a report she lied to them and said I grabbed my son, and told them I was on drugs. A couple days later CPS contacted me and I admitted to being a recovering addict. They thought that was enough evidence to start a case on me, even though there was no found proof of the allegations and I had no drugs or alcohol in my system. It wasn’t until 4 months later that I gave a dirty UA. That evening, while making dinner, my case worker came and took my son from me. He placed him in the care of my cousin, (foster family) my false accusers. My cousins wife, Jennifer is a bipolar, manic, alcoholic.; with a personal vendetta against me, and threatened to kill me in front of my son, and CPS.
As time went on, things for me only got worst. Jennifer was in contact with CPS reporting lies that they wrote down as facts. She was in contact with Sebastian’s father and my family also, ultimately turning my entire family against me. She could not keep her composure around my son or cps workers when speaking about me. DHS documented all of her threats and foul language about me. When she threatened to kill me, in front of Stephanie Phillips, CPS visitations worker, she was concerned and made sure her concerns were heard. There are many pages of documented concerns about the foster family, stating they believe that they are the reason for my son’s emotional distress. Nothing was ever done to reunite my son and I.
