Health Impact News and MedicalKidnap.com has previously reported how the FBI saying that Kentucky is “the most corrupt state in the country.
Is the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS), as it is known in Kentucky, just a Government-Funded Adoption Agency that steals and deals in Children for Profit?
There is great financial incentives for the US States to remove children from families and place these children for adoption, for what many would call questionable allegations, false accusations, or even downright egregious violations of parental rights, basically using children as a transferable commodity to increase the State’s budget.
However, on its website, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, and its “family services” agency, DCBS, claims to work toward family reunification.
Why would an agency whose stated goal is family reunification or placement with relatives, purportedly do neither? Could it be that family reunification and kinship care are not profitable?
The role of CPS has changed over the years. They have become too powerful and have shifted their focus from offering guidance and support to acting as a punitive force.
Historically, CPS would provide in-home services to help stabilize families in need of assistance and maintain children in their home. Preventing child abuse and ensuring a safe home environment was the ultimate goal.
In 1974, Congress passed the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, which provided federal funds to the states for the prevention of physical abuse, neglect and sexual abuse.
Then, in 1997, Congress passed the Adoption and Safe Families Act, which established strict timelines for returning children in foster care to their parents or for terminating parental rights, thus freeing the children for adoption.
In some cases, states are authorized to dispense with efforts to reunify the family and move directly to termination of parental rights. “It has stopped being a resource for families in need and has instead turned into an adoption mill.
Attorney Julie Ketterman said this legislation started with good intentions, but it was the seed for corruption. CPS now frequently oversteps their boundaries, opting to remove children from their homes, placing them outside the home and in to foster-to-adopt homes for monetary advantage.
