THE STORY:

Did you know that the state of Texas has the highest rate for children taken out of there homes and placed in the states care. But out of 120,000 children in the states system at least 30,000 have no foster families. Since 2015 Texas DFPS has been under investigation due to the alarming rate of children removed from their homes not due to any kind of abuse? Out of 30,000 children taken from there homes a little over 19,000 were returned home after a review of those cases, and for these children, they didnt deserve what the states' dfps put them in. And out of these children wrongly removed and put with strangers 63% were abused in some type of way, sexually, physically, mentally and emotionally. And unfortunately around 7% of these children died in the hands of foster parents. What Texas is doing to our families and innocent children is not right. Do not get me wrong, yes we do need dfps, because there are children in great danger at their homes. But the percentage of children that actually need help is about 37%. Children wrongfully taken from their loving families are very damaged and have bleak futures. Help us find better answers and support and education to keep our families together. Money should not be the issue when it comes to our kids yet dfps and judges seem to think thats all that matters. Please help bring our children HOME!
