My fiance and I have dealt with dcbs and the court system for 4 years, we’ve done everything they have all asked, parenting classes, sexual abuse classes, therapy for sexual abuse (our oldest child was sexually abused) and for family therapy, psych evaluations and a KATS assessment (in ky). The KATS assessment was a bunch of bullcrap, dcbs kept throwing up all our faults and the KATS assessment, which stated I was mentally incapable of taking care of my kids, because I have anxiety and depression. It was even stated from my psych evaluation person that I wouldn’t be so depressed and have so high of anxiety if my kids were back home, everyone ignored that and the fact that my kids were going through anxiety and stress from being apart from their parents. At the end we were given the choice of finding someone to take our kids or letting them be adopted out. The judge told us that if it was legal to adopt our kids out and we still have rights to see them or if he could give our kids back, he would. No one ever told us why we couldn’t have them back (except for our oldest girl getting sexually abused, which we were never around the abuser after it happened and even had plans to keep that person away from our children). We had my sister in law come in and she said she could take care of our 3 kids. Now it’ been a year after she’s had our girls, she has hit our kids, yelled and screamed at them, told them they are nothing, talked bad about us as parents to our kids and we want our kids back, we have not stopped fighting for them to come home! But we don’ know her rights and we still have our parenting rights but they don’t live with us, they live with their aunt. She has told us now that we are going to see our kids once a month now because it’s too hot for her while we have visits with our kids. We have supervised visits now because last year we got tired of her treating our kids badly. We had an agreement that we could come see our kids at anytime (the court deemed it under her digression on what she does), but because we as parents stood up for our kids, she said no more unsupervised visits, and no more visits at her house. So we are paying Family Enrichment $25 a hour to see our kids once every 2 weeks and now my sister in law, because she is hot, wants the visits to be once a month because she wants to stop our visits (I know that’ why). So how do I go about getting my kids back from her and I know I have to go through the court system, but my kids are 9 years old and under, they tell us everything but no one but my kids will tell on her about hitting them, whipping them, yelling/screaming at them. I’e tried calling dcbs but they do nothing.
