    Me and my husband are being put through pure hell. Once again oday we were visitted by them because someone called and made false accusations against us. We had to take a urine drug screen test in our home and the results came back negative. But when I called them to tell tthem myy daughter and son were beaten by their father and abused and neglected by their fathers, mothers boyfriend they didnt do a damn thing. I had pictures of the bruises and everything. I called multiple times and not one phone call back. My ex is still around my kids and is under the influence of crack and marijuana but do you think theyy drug tested him hell no!

    C&Y never contacted me when they placed my newborn grandson from the hospital with strangers. They knew who I was and could have easily found out how to contact me, as I had raised my other grandson and they were involved with removing him from his parents home and placing him with me. They wore me down and refused to help me gain custody of my grandson despite the fact that I was approved for kinship care. They would not help, rarely returned my calls if at all, , refused to give me accurate information on the process to have my grandson and even made a racial comment about "Jews". I have never met my grandson and he was adopted by his foster parents after C&Y wore me down with their accusation that my son had been living with me for a period that I had not reported to them, which was a complete, blatant lie. They told me they knew this to be true because my sons attorney talked to them (without my sons permission) and told them that. The attorney told me that was not the case and that he knew my son was transient and could not tell when he was living with me because it was very sporadic . C&Y took a newborn baby from a chance of being raised by his loving Grandmother (I'm also a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who has provided respite and foster care since approximately 2001 to present) who would have cared for meticulously and loved Christian Malachi Nauman more then anyone else could. Now I think of him every day and love him from afar. I thought this was America and I had rights however all I have learned from this experience is that one in this country only obtain rights when they can afford to purchase them with Lawyers whom are proficient in overcoming the power of Children and Youth of Lancaster. If I could have afforded those Lawyers and was not put thru the hell, challenges and barriers C&Y gave me, I would be raising my flesh and blood who belonged with me.

    My 3 daughters were taken in 2008. They showed up at their first visit with me 2 weeks later and the one had a 3 inch cut down the back of her leg and a burn on her leg. The other one had bruises on her spine that looked like finger marks. The list goes on. I ended up having almost 20 pages of burns, cuts, and bruises on my kids while in foster care. In Oct. 2009 my middle daughter got moved to a therapeutic foster home. She started having a lot of marks on her also. Including stitches. Whenever I asked about the marks I was told they fell. In 2010 my one daughters school started calling me about her IEP. They said they had sent certified letters to the Guardian Adlitum and all the letters came back unsigned. I went to a meeting at the school. The principal told me they had concerns for my daughters safety in the foster home. They told me that they had called childline 14 times and no investigations were done. In March 2011 right before a hearing I got a call from the caseworker. She said they were going to start reunification for my children starting with the middle one. She would have a one day visit, an overnight visit, a weekend visit and then be home the next weekend. The other to would start weekend visits on the weekend that my middle daughter came home for good and the weekend visits would continue until the school year was over. Well, I called my middle daughters school to tell the principal and she said that the school called the federal hotline to file a complaint against the agency and they just got a letter that day that an investigation was being done. Thats why they were sending her home that quick. So we went to the hearing and the judge agreed and told cys that they kidnapped my children and they never should have been removed in the first place. Well, needless to say my oldest and my youngest were in the same foster home the whole time and they were molested by the foster dad the whole time. My middle one was beaten, sold for money, pictures taken and put on the computer, locked up, and mentally abused in that foster home that the school was worried about. Of course the doctors, therapists, psychologists, etc all called childline to get the foster parents investigated and all the reports were immediately unfounded. I had a lawyer who was going to sue them. He said I have a very good case and he started all the paperwork. Then, he moved to another office and now it is supposedly a conflict of interest so now I have to find another lawyer to sue them. To this day they show up once a year and try to say that they recieved a call. I won't let them in they have traumatized my family enough. The kids have been home since 2011 and they are still having issues dealing with the trauma they endured. It is horrible.

    Im being falsely accused by Lancaster county children and youth, I have passed all my urine tests for 2.5 years, Did everything they asked of me and they still trying to terminate my rights, And have my 7 year old son adopted out to kinship Mennonite family, He was taken as a result of his mothers actions, Not mine, They never contacted me prior to him being placed, I have accumulated over 12, 000$ in legal and counseling debt, And they claiming Mental health concerns? I have very good employment, In process of purchasing a forever home for my son, But, Because I tell them my feelings towards this situation, They continue to claim mental health concerns, This is another of their shams as a corrupt agency.
