3 years ago, My Daughter fell and hit her head pretty hard on the floor and a hairline fracture occured on her skull. CPS got involved when i tried to get medical care for my daughter, They tried to charge me for Physical Abuse/Neglect and the case was closed as unfounded. I'm Thinking like do they always get involved when a child gets hurt. Doesnt children get hurts all the time or was i targeted because i was a single parent that goes to work and school full time.
My daughter is 6 years old now, she started kindergarten, anyway, to make long story short, I get a call from a case worker, stating she got a report of physical abuse. I'm thinking now, what is it now, she has no injuries not what so ever. she finally came to my home with some pictures of my daughter's back (pictures without my permission of my daughter) which was taken at her school. I'm staring at the picture realizing exactly what this false alarm was all about. Those are her birthmarks, they are called "MONGOLIAN SPOTS" very common skin discoloration. and with previous records i was forced to get documents concerning the Mongolian spots of my child. Really? That is like saying your freckles are cigarette burns. I am constantly getting harassed by CPS, and its really starting to piss me off. They got a report on false bruises and they are still coming to my home and checking up on my daughter. Is this legal, can they really do this.
