He has a wonderful advocate in you. Without you, it sounds as though he would have no one. It is always a mystery to me why the authorities, the people in charge of protecting children, choose not to believe the evidence right in front of them. But it happens all too often. Their actions, or rather, their inactions, cause even more harm. On an emotional level because the child is betrayed and abandoned yet again after finally speaking out. And speaking out took a great deal of courage in the first place. Try escalating your report within CPS with a manager. Keep working on behalf of this child. I send you both love, light and healing energy, Kurina. Thank you for sharing this boy's story with my visitors and me.

Hope

I have an idea.. If you can afford to hire a private investigator, they may be able to record proof of the abuse. Make sure you get one who knows what by are doing. ask for references of other people who they have helped. I wish I could help all the kids who go through pain...why anyone would hurt a child is just unbelievable and painful for me as an adult. We are here to protect them and the ones who are supposed to be there to listen and give hope are often the ones who stand by and do nothing-- thanks to our SHI**Y court system. I know how helpless you feel-- I have been in the courts in the past with issues with my grand children's father. I felt so helpless and no one seemed to care. I wish you the best and do Not give up hope

the bottom line
by: nobodyatall

I think the reason cps and other authorities look the other way probably comes down 2 the almighty dollar. if they judge a particular child as being "ok" somehow, that's 1 less child the government has 2 spend money on, for everything from social workers, foster care, lawyers, advocacy, et.

no mystery there! a child seems 2 have 2 just about die b4 anything is done 4 them. by then it's often 2 late 2 help this very "far-gone" child. when cps seems to work right, I think it's due 2 a fortunate coincidence of social workers and others working on the case all being kind, decent people. this combination doesn't occur that often.

in addition 2 not helping most children who need help, due to the government's "bottom line" priorities, this also continues 2 give bad parents that age-old threat 2 hold over their children's heads - "Keep it up, and I'll send u 2 a FOSTER HOME! And it'll be way worse than here at home with US!" unfortunately, this is 2 often TRUE, and is used 2 keep abused children from complaining about their abuse.

the government HAS 2 have a cps division, by law, but how well it works is a matter of how caring the people who work in it are, along with what I suspect are strong warnings 2 them from "above" about saving money as their biggest priority. in other words, the foster system is to a great extent a joke.

i feel sad for the boy in the window
by: Anonymous

I don't understand why no one is willing to help him but the only thing i can tell you just keep on calling CPS on them until they get tired of it and make copies of the his journal and the pictures of bruises send them to the police department with the address the boy is at and put a note on there and "say please help this boy before he dies" and tell them please read his journal and let him know he is crying out for help and the bruises proof it. You can do this without them know who it is that send those to the police department.

it breaks my heart to see him like this i hope some rescue him soon before he does in up trying to commit suicide because he is tired of that life or she will end up killing him.

addition 2 my previous comment
by: nobodyatall

I should add, on the bright side, that I knew a foster parent 4 many years, who took in many children and pretty much fell in love w/all of them. so, the foster system isn't totally terrible. but, by and large, I think greed rules the day, as it does with so much of life. if only those in power would realize that greed is harming THEM, too, in their souls. I mean, how much wealth does somebody really need, b4 they start 2 realize that having more and more stuff is empty, and that helping others is what will really fill them up, fulfill their needs that they're trying 2 fill w/possessions.

THANK YOU ALL!!
by: Kurina Cota

I just wanted to say that reading everybody's comments is only making me stronger & stronger. I got a tip from somebody I went to school with who works for CPS & and she told me to go to the governors advocacy office in Nevada. I got step by step instructions as to how to go about this manner. Also my attorney filed paperwork for 3rd party visitation & or full guardianship. All I need to make sure that happens is that XAVIER SPEAKS TO THE JUDGE. WITHOUT HER THERE BREATHING DOWN HIS BACK. He was pulled from school a couple weeks ago, I have not heard a thing.... I don't know if he's ok. The police & CPS, don't give a s**t & do NOTHING. I have never been so frustrated in my life. I'm not giving up, never.... As long as I'm breathing, I'm fighting!

The boy,
by: AnonymousT

Call the police. CPS is notorious for being swamped with cases and not following through.
Call the police with all info you have. Tell the school (that he was removed from). Tell CPS again. But keep telling.
