Help Megan, Courtney, And Emily Get Their Dad Back..
GOD GAVE ME MY CHILDREN NOT THE STATE!
"Those who plant injustice will harvest disaster, and their reign of terror will come to an end." Dear Lord, Satan, the accuser of the brethren, Child Protective Services has come disguised as an angel of light. I take up the sword of the Holy Spirit which is your Word and the truth that will set us free. Watch over and protect my children and all the children that the enemy has come to steal, kill, and destroy. I trust You value our families, and trust You will not allow the wicked to destroy them simply because they have the power to do so. You said that those who hunger and thirst for justice will be satisfied, and that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. I know that You are with me, and that I can stand strong on your promises which I receive in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Hello, my name is James Foster and I have been engaged in an effort to regain custody of my three children for four years now. They have been abducted by the state of Texas, CPS, who has the intention of adopting them out in exchange for federal adoption bonus money. It is my intention to not let that happen... I have created this petition in order to assist me in my efforts... I intend to submit this petition to the 11th District Appellant Court in Eastland County, Texas... This is what happened... In 2004, an order was placed for my children by my Aunt, who quite simply and blatantly wanted my children for herself. She has a history of being psychologically obsessed with wanting other peoples children... As a result my three daughters were abducted by the State of Texas, Child Protective Services on Sept.5, 2005, and given to my Aunt... This was based on an allegation that I had caused a bruise on my six year old daughters forehead… Not only did I not cause the bruise, but an investigation by CPS revealed that I worked out of town, and did not even have access to my daughter for 5 days prior to the injury. Courtney later told me that she had hit her head on the monkey bars at school... I was told by the department that their permanency plan was family reunification, and that I would have my children back within thirty days... This was a lie and tactic to keep me from obtaining an attorney. I later learned that the "service plan" that I successfully completed, which consisted of personal counseling, couple counseling, family counseling, psychological evaluation, drug evaluation, home evaluations, batterer intervention program, anger management program, and parenting classes, was a smoke screen, designed to make it look like they were somehow helping me to become suitable to raise my children, when in actuality, they were using their team of paid professionals to build a case against me… During this first year in CPS custody they maximized their federal funding by deeming my children “special needs children" They did this by diagnosing them with ADHD and forcing them to take psychiatric drugs. This way they were able to obtain more federal money... These psychiatric drugs along with the emotional abuse of being ripped away from her parents, and my Aunt and Uncle forcing my kids to call them Mom and Dad, led to Courtney, being admitted into a psychiatric hospital with thoughts of suicide... (Who protects the children, when their God given protectors have been stripped away, and CPS becomes the abuser ) This case ended with a "mediated settlement agreement" That took CPS out of the picture, gave my Aunt "PMC," and gave me a graduated visitation schedule. I agreed on this settlement with the intentions of pursuing to regain full custody with CPS out of the picture... During this time My children made an outcry to me that they were being physically abused by my aunt's husband and CPS was forced to investigate the integrity of their own placement. CPS's findings were "no signs of abuse or neglect." But, I have documented photos, a sheriff's report and a statement from my daughter, that says she was physically held down on a bed and was beaten black and blue, with a belt, while she lay kicking and screaming and with no clothing on her legs, (or her daddy) to protect her. All for leaving a car door open... During this time, my Aunt hired her own attorney, took me to court, and tried to have my parental rights terminated on her own. Which had to go before the District Court, not CPS court, because CPS was no longer involved... The District Court Judge, Griffen, scolded my aunt and her attorney, and told them they had no grounds to terminate my parental rights... It was now time for me to file my own law suit to regain custody of my children. A glimmer of hope, right? Wrong ! My Aunt sought refuge in her old allies, up and gave my kids back to CPS. She knew that she was going to have to rely on the states endless power if she was ever going to be able to steal my children away from me for ever... This began the second CPS case, and landed my children in a group home, where they are 6 times more likely to be physically, sexually abused or murdered... Over 1000 children are murdered or die from serious neglect in the guardianship of CPS every year... This also required me to begin a new service plan, and gave CPS a second chance to terminate my parental rights, which was now their permanency plan ... How could I have failed as a parent during this time, when the access I had to my children was limited to supervised visitations During this time, my visitations were court ordered to take place in a town almost two hours away, however I have documented the violation of these "court orders" by CPS, because the kids were not being brought to these visits about 50% of he time, with no regard to letting me know they were not going to show up... During one of these times I spent in the waiting room, another parent shared a seemingly believable story that she knew someone who was able to pay CPS and got their children back... When I inquired about weather this was possible with my case worker, she turned around and filed "Felony Bribery" charges on me, which of course was not what happened... Those charges are still pending... So now with approximately two months before my "final hearing", the CPS judge, tells me I have to get another attorney because the one I had was representing myself and my kids mother... I still don't understand this ruling... However my new attorney who was not familiar with the case was no match for the "State of Texas", whom I’d like to point out, now had three years to prepare their case. On September 11, 2008, Against my children's and my will, and by using unlawful tactics, The State obtained a verdict terminating my parental rights. The department promptly scheduled what they proudly call a "final visitation." I have not been allowed to see, talk to, or write my children sense that visit in November 2008...
My case has been in appeal for the last year and a half...We have filed our appeal brief and waited for the state to file theirs, which they finally did in December 2009. The appellant court finally has all they need to make a ruling, however their is no news to date. The basis for our argument is that the court allowed the state to retry the first case even though we had come to a mediated settlement agreement, and the fact that mistreating my children was impossible, when they were not even in my care... As you can see, there are many injustices in my case. But this is not an isolated incident, in fact, it is a world wide political and criminal phenomenon. I continue to pray and trust that God is still in control. I find inspiration in Nehemiah 4:14, the scripture that says, "Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, "Don't be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord who is great and glorious, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes. "
Words can not explain the devastation of loosing your identity, your meaning and purpose in life as a parent. What my kids must be going through? If you feel compelled to help, and want the appellant court to return my children to me, then please sign this petition... Thank you, and God bless... James Foster
