Opinion Piece By Donna Westfall – April 1, 2017 – First off, this is not April Fool’s joke.
Until the Bryan and Judy Ranger tragedy, I had no inkling on how CPS/Child Welfare Services worked or how they were funded. I was under the impression children were taken out of bad, abusive, dysfunctional homes and placed sometimes temporarily into foster homes; I thought it was a service worthy of funding.
I’ve since changed my opinion to the point of wondering if our local CPS/Child Welfare Services should be dismantled?
Many local families have contacted me with horror stories perpetrated against them by CPS and the courts. Children yanked out of their home then placed in foster homes, or group homes;some then adopted out. Due to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act law (CAPTA), the funding has become seamless between payments to foster families and adoptive families and it looks like it incentivizes legal kidnapping.
Formerly I was under the impression that when children were adopted, their adoptive families bore the expense of raising them. NOT SO! The TAXPAYERS foot the bill and the adoptive families get that money income tax free and are also allowed to deduct that child(ren) as dependents from their income taxes.
Now that I’m beginning to understand the money aspect of this scam against decent families and the public taxpayers, it’s time to expose it so that something can be done about it before more families are destroyed along with reputations.
