The need for Parents’ and Children’s Justice came about because of abuses in the so-called Socialb Services and Child Protection Systems. Our goal is to create awareness of abuses within the systems themselves, and the abuse to children that results from the inability of the state to properly manage the foster care system.
Parents’ and Children’s Justice creates awareness through direct education, informational pieces, the internet and word-of-mouth. It is the goal of this blog to create a body of people united together in this purpose to save our children.
Don Porter and Phyllis Porter are available to speak to your organization, group or family about their experiences with organizations presently ostensibly set up to protect children, but which are, in fact, propogating and fostering abuses.
You are invited to join this cause and create revolutionary change for the good of our kids. You may do this by blogging, writing, calling, sharing in any manner your experiences, and they will even aid in staging protests as they are needed in your community.
Please blog or contact them at 913-757-4805 from 10:00 am – 9:00 pm.

SRS, along with The Farm, Incorporated (TFI), services more than 21 counties together. This is not counting Kaw Valley Center and other organizations like them, for putting children in a new program they have instituted, called TRAIL. This program, TRAIL, opened its doors on January 26, 2007, in Topeka, Kansas. Pathway Family Services, Inc., a member of TFI, placed their first client into the TRAIL program on January 30, 2007. TFI is working with SRS and the state to take children from their parents and grandparents and is putting them into this new program, TRAIL, which is comparable to OPPLA.
TRAIL is also available to children in the KAW Valley Center, and other contractors like them. There are also programs which are similar in Johnson County and Sedgwick County. The creation of more and more organizations or “programs” which are funded by the state and the federal government is creating more power to the SRS to remove children from their parents for smaller “infractions” or even perceived parental problems which may or may not be true and are not validated.
The SRS then turns them over to their paid contractors, which brainwash and bribe the children to stay in their program and to not return to their family of origin. It is a very real and frightening parallel to Hitler’s youth organization as the growth of the Nazi party alienated children from their parents, indoctrinating an entire country with bigotry, hatred and lies.
This is not the American Way. These organizations need to be investigated and stopped, not only in Sedgwick County but also Wyandote, Miami, Linn, Bourbon, Anderson, Johnson and all other counties in Kansas. An audit investigation of one area does not even begin to touch the magnitude of the problem which has grown like a cancer. Monies being used to funnel the children through SRS and into these programs need to be allocated to defend the parents and grandparents and the children caught up into this web. The goal of these organizations is to make money off of the programs ostensibly created for the good of the children, which subverts the whole intention to better the families and individuals affected, and creates corruption, which is exponentially magnified as the systems grow and feed off of one another.
The news media is totally unaware of what actually occurs because of the privacy rights of the families, which works in an adverse fashion to getting at the truth. It actually protects a corrupt system. If the news media are not allowed into the courtrooms, they should be able to talk to the parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, and the siblings left behind in the home in order to ascertain a truer picture of what actually has occurred to that family.
We have spoken to many grandparents who have used their life savings or have borrowed money on their property to keep their grandchildren with their parents. There goes the grandparents’ golden years, and they are in debt again, only now on a fixed salary. This is destroying to many good American families, not only emotionally but also financially. The creation of these organizations and this system costs not only the family of origin directly, but also the ignorant taxpayers, who are funding this massive spider web. It is robbing Peter to pay Paul, taking the money out of one pocket and putting it into another’s.
People who apply to become foster parents, and go through the investigative process to become foster parents, are not investigated thoroughly. The relatives and neighborhood of those applying are not investigated to see if there is a pedophile or if there are drugs and alcohol which would affect children being brought into the home. SRS has the habit of taking children and running with them, not making the effot to return the kids to their homes. They are keeping most of these children under false allegations. Employees of SRS, TFI, KVC, and all the other state and federal organizations ostensibly created for the benefit of children, have a vested interest in keeping the children in the system, which funds extensive benefit packages for all employees. They are provided with good retirement plans, medical and hospital plans, sick leaves and vacation pays, all paid for by needlessly taking children away from their parents. It is a system which feeds on the desperate plights of families and perpetuates the problems, often through generations. It is not meeting the needs nor fixing the problems for which “the system” was created. We have spoken with many people who have stated that their daughter or granddaughter had become pregnant while in a foster home.
What in actual fact happens when a child gets pregnant while in SRS, TFI, KVC, DCCCA and Youthville, and any other contractors like them? Are they sent back to their parents to have that baby? Does the state give them assistance during that time? If the parent or child does decide not to have the baby because they are too young, who pays for the abortion? Or do they have doctors who confidentially do the abortion?
We do know that children get pregnant while in the system. If the parents and child don’t believe in abortions and they decide that they don’t want to keep the baby, does SRS go back through court and have the baby put back into the system, so it can be recycled out into the system again?
When children get sexually assaulted, molested or raped while in SRS custody, the parents are told, “It could have happened while they were in your home.” Very little, if anything, is done to remedy the situation. It appears as if the workers, the foster parents and the Guardian Ad Litems are merely turning their heads.
How many times has the child become pregnant or been molested? The public — normal, everyday taxpayers — needs to know how much money they have to pay for something that shouldn’t be happening in the first place. Or is it called “privileged information”?
Children are brainwashed by being told how much better off they would be and how much more the system can do for them if the child will stay in the system and “age out” because there are “great opportunities” for the child while in the system. This is the “sugar coating” that they give to all the children.
What has occurred over and over and over again — as told to us many times by parents and grandparents — the child is promised the moon. When it comes time for that help, the system fails them. There is nothing available in actual fact for that child. The children live where they can live, sleeping where they can sleep, with friends or on the street. They end up on drugs, alcohol, in prostitution, in prison, and some ultimately are injured or killed. The facts can be checked. The jails, prisons and homeless shelters are result of false promises. Many children are too ashamed to come back to their family to get help. Generation after generation remains in “the system” on welfare.
Most people who have been involved with the system are saying that SRS and the people that work for them are so powerful that some of the judges become puppets or mere pawns for the system.
We have actually seen where an attorney was Guardian Ad Litem for a child taken from her parents in one county was defending the child against the parents and defending the system, while in another county, that same attorney was defending the child against the system. It entirely depends upon who the attorney is representing on which side he falls. Where is truth? It again comes back to money, and who is paying whom.
The employees of SRS, TFI, the Guardian Ad Litem, who is an attorney who is supposed to represent the child, often are seen together, even in the courthouse, all chatting together like one big, happy family. The family’s attorney is out in the cold. GAL, County Attorney, TFI and SRS are making the odds 4 to 1.
It appears as though everything is cut-and-dried, even before going to the court hearing. As long as the children are in custody, even postponements are already decided regardless of the truth in the case and the family’s needs, because everybody is making money. The machine is well oiled, and they don’t want to release the child — the moneymaker!
How long does it take to investigate child abuse or accusations of neglect by a parent or parents? One would think it should only take 30 to 60 days at the most. In many instances, we know of investigations dragging on for many months or many years.
The public — John Q Citizen – should know the truth about the millions of dollars that are poured into TFI, KVC and other organizations like them in the State of Kansas. Where is the information that should be available to any normal citizen about where their tax dollars are going?
We need good judges, good prosecuting attorneys and good Guardian Ad Litems to stand up and say that there isn’t enough evidence to support the allegations in many cases, and to tell the SRS to give the children back.
The legislature itself should make new laws, and to make certain that there are no loop-holes through which the child is retained in the system when the family situation does not warrant it. This must be done to save the children from the laws which the State of Kansas has currently which keeps children away from their families.
TFI knows of a specific case — and actually more than one — where TFI put children into a foster home in which they have been raped, sodomized, then removed from the home where it occurred, but then TFI immediately turned around and placed other children back into that home. They call that, “Just doing their job.”
The SRS is known to place children in foster homes where they have been hurt or killed. Obviously, the investigation of that foster home was sadly lacking. If the SRS really cares, they would do more due-diligence in their investigations of foster homes, not placing children in harm’s way.
Are not our rights as parents and the rights of our children being violated by these actions?
Do you think your rights were violated in family courts?
Do you think your children’s rights were violated in family courts?
Do you think you had equal and adequate protection in the due process of your court proceedings?
Isn’t it time for all of us to stand abreast and start asking some very serious questions, for this is a real war that we must win in order to achieve the victory we as families desperately need. The battles we have lost. It is the war we must win. We must get our rights back from the corrupt system. If people involved with juvenile custody cases are not satisfied, then it’s time to file in Federal Court. Let the Federal Court make the decision for your State Court.
We CAN do this by standing together — not alone and apart — and demand our rights back as parents.
