My name is Jonneshia Doss. I am involved in a CPS case for spanking my daughter back in September in 2012. In September of last year I spanked my daughter with a belt for continuous bad behavior, in school detentions, numerous referrals, and repeated phone calls to home from her school.
She was upset about being spanked, so she went to school the next day and lied to her teachers and said that I beat her with a belt buckle and stepped on her, (I am over 200lbs). She had some little marks but nothing remotely close to being beaten with a belt buckle. CPS and Warren Police Department was called by the teachers, so my 4 children were interviewed at the school for hours with no adult or parental supervision, and the answers were used to build a case for 4th degree child abuse, which I was charged with and all 6 of my children removed that very same day (September 28, 2012) and placed in my sister's care.
Two CPS workers showed up to my house along with 4 WPD cars, in which my children were in the car with them. They searched my house from the top of the house to the basement, refrigerator, cabinets, and everywhere with no warrant or just cause. Lindsey Rauch, CPS worker and Emily Dornbroch, Foster Care Intake worker, even had me pull my 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter's clothes down in front of all those people to make sure no bruises were present.
October 2, 2012 there was a meeting held over the phone in which I was asked questions and was basically told by CPS they were seeking termination of my parental rights and that I wouldn't be getting my children back.
So I was given a court appointed attorney, Paul Kushner, who was the worst I have ever seen. He didn't object to anything, question anything, or do anything that would help me to get my children back home.
In October of 2012, I submitted to my first random drug screen, which was negative, found my own counseling services, enrolled in parenting class, and followed all of CPS's recommendations. I was only allowed a visit once a week for 1 hour with all 6 of my children, and a visit with my 1 and 3 year old for 3 hours a week. The supervised visits were held up at the Macomb County DHS office in Clinton Township on Dunham Road and I had to catch the bus there. I spent November and December of 2012 going back and forth to Macomb County Circuit Court doing DNA tests for my children, so it was a waste of taxpayers money for answers I had already given them.
I had been back and forth to court monthly until February 26, when the children were adjudicated and had became temporary court wards. I started parenting classes in January and graduated in March of this year. I had submitted to more random drug screens, psychological evaluations, and everything recommended. The Parent Agency Agreement was then entered into court in February of this year and I was already 80% completed with the services they were asking me to do before I was ordered to do them.
I am currently on probation for a year for spanking my daughter as well, so I comply with all the terms of my probation. I had my youngest baby, which is now almost 3 months old and CPS removed him from the hospital and gave him to my mother because the other kids are in care. The children were assigned an attorney, Dana Krause, who doesn't meet with them, interview them, or even observe a birth family visit so she is biased and don't think that the children are safe with me. My sister has told everyone how well the visits go, since she is the children's caregiver and no one ever listens.
Macomb County DHS is unfair and not willing to uphold the laws they use to bring your kids into care they make to you. I have completed ALL services necessary to satisfy the court order. Karen Albany, the present Foster Care worker, had recently added family therapyJune 6, 2013, that didn't start until September 15th and we have completed that as of November 19, 2013.
The Foster Care Worker Karen Albany, and I have numerous emails, where she stated she put in referrals for family therapy to take place. At the time, I was 32 weeks pregnant and she didn't complete the referral until August of this year.
I had my newborn AUGUST 28, 2013 AND HE WAS TAKEN AWAY AND PLACED IN FOSTER CARE SINCE FAMILY THERAPY WASN'T COMPLETED.
This worker has never been reprimanded for taking her time with the completion of referrals and I am suffering without my children and my newborn. I was told when I completed my anger management therapy and submitted reports of my progress, I would be granted unsupervised visits. Once I did that, then something else was ordered for me to have unsupervised visits, so once I complete that, what else is going to be ordered to keep me from getting my children home where they belong?
I have been more than cooperative and willing to do anything to prove to these people that I am willing to do any, and everything to get all my babies back home. They treat people unfairly, give parents false hope of ever being reunited with their children, and they emotionally and mentally abuse children by keeping them from their parents.
Please help us be united again. It is so many parents who are falsely accused and children wrongfully taken away from us parents, then make the children lie on their parents for title IV funding. We need to be heard. The prosecutor always threatens if we attempt to go to trial, so that the state has to prove their case, they will terminate me and my husband's parental rights. We don't have any money for a decent attorney and we are unemployed due to the continuous demands from the DHS/CPS workers and the court. After 14 months of supervised visits, we were granted unsupervised day visits, but since my newborn has been in care, and since we have not been receiving a lot of visits with him, he doesn't really know us.
My heart is broken and my hair is falling out.
Sincerely Jonneshia Doss

Michigan (Maura Corrigan's) DHS Neglected Detroit DHS, Rights To Be Terminated
http://beverlytran.blogspot.com/2012/03/michigan-dhs-neglected-detroit-dhs.html#axzz2c9GBsYbJ "I just adore Madame Corrigan (spoken in a high British accent), the arrogance of indifference, the indolence of immunity, the dismissive concerns that it was her Department of Human Services and her legislating from the bench that allowed the malfeasance and misfeasance in Detroit's Department of Human Services in the first place."
Fight brewing over Detroit's troubled Human Services Department
http://www.michiganradio.org/post/fight-brewing-over-detroits-troubled-human-services-department A fight is brewing between the Detroit City Council, Mayor Dave Bing, and the state. State department of Human Services director Maura Corrigan told the Council last week that the city’s human services department needs to be “de-designated.”
