As the keeper of the web files for NFPCAR web site and one of the Moderators for "Foster Parent Allegations", we have guided many in their battle against the injustices against them and/or their families. (Our Affiliation). Please note, our discussion group was started in 2002 by a few Foster Care Givers, who where falsely accused.
Today, we have Natural Parents, Adoptive Parents, Relatives, etc. Why? Since we have come to the realization that there is a battle between the government agencies, in the name of abuse; And the welfare of maintaining the Strength in Our Families.
As we tell many, any advice given, is just a starting point. What is important is that You become an advocate for yourself by knowing the State Statutes particular to Your Concerns, to protect your Family... ie Do your homework and Take the Offense.

Note: You may find, when searching on "single" criteria, 0 results may show up. A hint that perhaps many issues still haven't be addressed in many states?

However, for example, in my case, it took me over 3 months to organize my proof, research statutes, and build my defense against the agency. I did seek a lawyer, however, even before I had a lawyer, I did my homework... ie
Took the Offense
