Discrimination needs to be stopped

Hello, Everyone! My name is Eileen May Vest and I'm 34 years old married woman for 5 years as of 10/12/17. My husband's name is Roger Leonard Vest and he is 40 years old. My husband is my baby girl's father. Since October, 2014 Mr. & Mrs. Vest have been literally fighting with the state of Maryland for their daughter's custody right back. Their daughter is a medically fragile with multiple health complex such as tracheostomy (artificial airway) and gastronomy tube (feeding tube). She just turned 4 years old on 6/3/17 and she does have developmental delays. Mrs. Vest feels like that the Department of Social Services (DSS) is discriminating her because of Mrs. Vest's disabilities as well. Harford County Sheriff's office had reported to Child Protection Services that Mr. & Mrs. Vest neglected their child but Mr. & Mrs. Vest never did left their child alone. Mr. & Mrs. Vest left their child with their child's grandmother (Mrs. Vest's mother) when their child went into respiratory distress and their child's grandmother had plenty of common sense to call paramedics. Mr. & Mrs. Vest went away just for one overnight honeymoon getaway to Mrs. Vest's sister's house in Bethany Beach, DE. Mr. & Mrs. Vest had already paid out of their pocket another person who was Certified Nurse Assistant to watch their child during the day while their child's grandmother is still at the house. When Mr. & Mrs. Vest called back to Mrs. Vest's mom had told Mr. Vest to meet them at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, MD. By the time Mr. & Mrs. Vest crossed over MD/DE state line Mrs. Vest's mom had called Mr. Vest back & told him to just meet them down in Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD so they stayed on I-95 straight thru and they got there exactly 2 minutes prior to ambulance pulled up with their child in there. The Johns Hopkins Emergency Room nurse & social worker reassured Mr. & Mrs. Vest told if they were home & had to call paramedic they will be in this dilemma as well. The DSS is doing nothing but giving Mr. & Mrs. Vest's mental health problems, hardship, depression, and stress. Also, DSS caseworker told Mr. & Mrs. Vest if they passed the state health department's and fire marshal's inspections they can started working towards unsupervised visitation with their daughter at Mr. & Mrs. Vest's residence and which it's a lied because Mr. & Mrs. Vest never got granted for it. Mr. & Mrs. Vest had passed everything and anything under the sun. The DSS asked Mrs. Vest to get a job which she still has it still this day since 4/27/16. Mr. & Mrs. Vest's caseworker is known to be a liar and never given them a monthly visitation schedule. What is DSS's motto? Their motto is keeping families with their child which that's big freaking lied.
