    I had foster sibling group from 18 months and 2 months now 4 going on 3 years. TPR was 2017 January were we were told would adopt. The kids were in there forever home so I thought until December 2017 when I dare to question the bureaucrats concerning a waiver that the severely medical child needed. I was told whatever the offered you should have signed and ask no questions. My response was are we dealing with potted plants or humans and are we interested this child doing well and keep thriving. Up to this point I was the greatest granted in one year this child had more than 132 appointments and we never missed one. Now the law states this waiver can be negotiated and we try to do so incited DFACS had an emergency staff meeting and shut down all communication with me when I started asking questions. Long story short they took the babies from my home, doctors, specialist teachers asking why? I was told they were placed with a local Doctor. Come to find out this Doctor is a good friend of her GI doctor . Also this pre-adoptive parent is pediatric Gastroenterology and research doctor with her location being at the same address where my daughter goes for appointments. Also five my daughters active illnesses is what she specialize in. I think our baby was targeted and because she was a foster child and she is a Doctor DFACS said she the doctor did not need the waiver and thinking about we had has a family. This is morally wrong at all levels. Who can help fight the BIG BAD Bully. We wanted these babies with us, as far as we are concerned they are in respite therefore they can come home. They were taken March 24, 2018 which was a bitter sweet day for us because it was my daughter's birthday. When my child almost died last October her discharge papers showed conditions, she was Flagged within days I was going right to location. Now I am afraid to go to doctors because we don't who is targeting us. PLEASE HELP ME BRING THE BABIES HOME

    I have no clue what you're trying to ask or what even is going on in your statement because it's just all over the place. Can anyone else translate?

    She lost her foster child(ren) to the state.
    She wants a lawyer to help her get them back.
    She says she was a great caregiver and mother.
    She thinks the ruling was unfair.
    She is upset and heartbroken.

    Thank you army Judge, DFACS, made me wait one year for papers to adopt and without reason gave the babies to research Doctor who happen to be friends with my daughter's GI Doctor. Also five of her current ongoing issues are treated by this Doctor in her clinic. I think my child was flagged and because she was a foster child it was easy taking.

    Is there any Law against professionals using the system to take unfair advantage?. Who is there to protect foster parents or are we there just to do cleanup work and someone else benefits from our hard work. My babies adoption is not completed they moved them to a pre-adoptive home, so therefore I want to fight to get them back

    You might be entitled to state appointed counsel.

    DFACS might be required to pay for legal services as you fight for what you believe is right.

    DFACS in its many forms across the 50 states can be an evil monster.

    I suggest you ask your city and state elected officials what legal help is available to you.

    The newdpaper, radio, and telwvision stations might be able to get your case publicity.

    The governor is also a good person to ask for help.

    Religious, parents, and adoption rights groups might be able to help.

    You don't have any rights to this child as she is not yours. If a doctor wants to adopt her and the agency responsible for her determines that is the most suitable home, that is the end of it. I would think a doctor who knows her medical condition would be a fabulous parent for a child with medical needs. What am I missing?

    The laws states that I have first rights to the child since she has been in my care for almost three years. I wanted to adopt her, not because "a person is a doctor" makes them a better parent. And for your information no fault was ever found with the type of care that the child was getting. And is this self righteous entitled attitude where people feel that because they have certain titles they can get what they want. Well if the Doctor wants a child she needs to Foster like I did, make 132 medical appointments like I did, sleep in the hospital for days like I did in others do they work I did, not trying to reap where she did not sow.
    • Foster parents have a first priority to adopt (even over relatives) if the child has lived in their home for more than 12 continuous months when the child is freed for adoption. SSL§ 383 (3).
    That is what's missing?

    I took the advise and wrote the Governor's Office and got an instant response, the power of the internet. They seem to think I was wronged too seeing that no fault was ever found with my home and I wanted to adopt. So well known member if you are going to comment on something, especially a forum such as this where people are looking for guidance to exercise their rights a least know the law and not taking off the top of your head.
