Three children whom must remain unnamed, have been placed temporarily with the paternal grandmother since May of 2012. She is currently in the process of legally adopting said children. However the state is saying that due to a felony that was committed by her husband almost 20 years ago will prevent this from going through, as well as attempting to remove the children from their new home and place them in a foster care. Her husband has even stated that he would move out and put his life on hold for the welfare of the children. This so far has not been an acceptable compromise for the state. They have come so far emotionally, psychologically, physically, as well as huge steps in their education. To remove them from their current and natural family would be destructive to their development as well as devastating to their cousin who has lived with their grandmother since birth and whom since their placement has become like a sibling.

Please allow the placement of 3 children to remain with their natural grandmother.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The kids have been placed in my home under then care of my sister in-law. All we are waiting for is some other minor paperwork to go through and the children will be legaly adopted by my mother. Thank you everyone for your support, I think that we may have swayed their decision in placing them with us while awaiting for the paperwork to arrive for the background check. Also Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!

      Toady ahead of schedule the kids were removed from the house. We are attempting to establish a cys approved environment in Pa for the kids. Please share and continue to have people sign this. This is very important for the kids, right now as much as it broke my mother's heart she told the kids they were going on vacation. We need to push more as of today I delivered the 80+ signatures as of 4pm, lets show him how much support the grandmother has.

      CYS is always removing children from homes from which they dont need to be removed. But yet, they leave the children who need to be removed in a bad home with parents who starve and abuse them. The kids should be with their family who they know, not with foster parents who they dont know. FOSTER PARENTS DON'T CARE ABOUT THE KIDS THEY JUST WANT THE MONEY THAT COMES WITH THEM

      Children should be kept together in a loving family. Do not put these children into the system which is not in their best interest.
