Imagine the joy of giving birth to a beautiful baby boy that defied all odds. Now imagine having severe pain with complications during birth. An emergency C-Section had to be performed in order to deliver your child. Picture not being able to care for your infant without having to take medication in order to minimize the pain. To make matters worse you had a substance growing in your uterus for nearly a year thought to be caused by the delivery of your newborn. Imagine having minimal support with the need to ask the State for assistance. Every mother in Oregon should feel able to ask for help from a caring “No Child Left Behind” Government.
Instead, the Oregon Department of Human Services – also known as DHS – was anything but ideal or helpful. When I needed someone to lend a helping hand DHS was right there offering to watch the infant so I could be admitted to a hospital for my medical problem. After taking my child DHS failed to provide the promised medical treatment and refused my repeated demands to have my son returned to me.
This is the real, shocking nightmare I have personally experienced for two years. DHS intentionally lied, deceived, and manipulated me by telling me my child would be returned in two weeks when I was out of the hospital. Instead they have held my son for over a year and terminated my parental rights. The US~OBSERVER has confirmed that DHS gets 80 to 90 thousand dollars if a child is taken and put up for adoption and nothing if the child is returned to the natural parents.
