Child Abuse in Florida - A Corrupt System
My children have been mentally, physically and sexually abused for the past 3 years by their father, and paternal grandmother. I had medical decision making authority taken way from me in court yesterday because I took my children to the doctor to have bruises documented, which is how they return home from visitation with their father. Their father and his attorney have painted, tainted a picture of me that I am abusing the system because not one DCF report was founded. The children have been threatened by their father that he will shoot me if they tell anybody, or they will never see me again. The children have admitted they lied to DCF investigators because they were threatened, told to lie and scared. So now I'm the bad parent and can no longer try to protect my children. I don't know what to do. I don't know how to protect my children from a monster and the corrupt legal/DCF system of Collier County, Naples Florida.
