The CPS Experience (possible triggers)

By RoseRed135 in Grandparents Unplugged,
Sometimes, when CPS (or ACS, DHFS or whatever the acronym is where you are for the child protective agency) takes children away from their parents, it's difficult for the parents and/or GPs to get to see/contact them. Other times, GPs (or other relatives) are asked to take the kids in. But either the parents resent the GPs/relatives for this or CPS instructs the GPs/relatives not to let the parents (and perhaps some other relatives) see/contact the children. Then again, there are those who find that the CPS  (or equivalent) in their area "does nothing" and others who highly admire them/have had good experiences w/ them. Thoughts? Experiences? Observations?
