Foster Parents; CPS vs.Celebrities?
Part 1 of 4
Most of us, foster parents, any parent who has experienced CPS, are drawn to any news story regardless whether it is on TV, or newspaper regarding Child Protective Services. Have you ever noticed when a celebrities name is mentioned in the same story as our friends, CPS it is a visit to the family, child welfare monitoring, not a removal ? Have you ever seen a article on CPS removing a child from a celebrity, a Congress person, Senator makes you wonder.
We have often wondered about this. In fact. we did an article on it a few months ago, appropriately we titled it, Selective protection, Part 1 /part 2 /part 3 / part 4.
As you know by now we always complete a little research on each issue we bring you, this one was immensely pleasant. We in fact, found a few examples of this very thing. Take a look at this.
(Newser) – For those wondering when the Department of Children and Family Services was going to step into the Charlie Sheen mess: It has. Following their Christmas blow-up, the LA branch is investigating Sheen and wife Brooke Mueller, and their 9-month-old twins could be taken from them temporarily. “When Charlie and his family step off the plane in California, they’ll be greeted by social workers,” a DCFS insider tells HollywoodLife
Sheen and Mueller will be monitored by two social workers, including drug testing three to five times per week, and a “clean” third party—it could be a relative—will likely have to move in. Officials at Colorado’s Pitkin County Department of Social Services earlier said they are also considering an investigation. The silver lining in all this? Ratings for Sheen sitcom Two and a Half Men are up since his arrest, the New York Post reports., the New York Post reports.
One cannot help but wonder what would happen to us if we placed a knife at the throat of our spouses? We already know the answer to that question, do we not? Domestic violence would have resulted in all of the foster children and perhaps our own biological children being removed.
Question; is this because the celebrities involved with CPS have the price tag Lady Justice wears on her sleeve or is it matter of social standing. Both are probably correct.
Question, would it be in the news that CPS removed Charlie Sheen’s child from his home, or Mariah Carries newborn, kind of think it would be, don’t you. See story below.
Nick Cannon recently revealed that after he and his wife, Mariah Carey, welcomed their twins last month, they were contacted by child protection officers because of allegations that the couple were drinking and doing drugs in the hospital!
