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.
