A Texas lawyer has criticized the state’s Child Protective Services (CPS), describing it as a racket and “adoption mill” that has amassed too much power over the lives of children and parents in the state.

As reported by The Paper, a publication serving the North Houston region, Julie Ketterman of KHA Lawyers, PLLC, has always been passionate about defending the rights of parents and families in cases where the CPS, a division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, had gotten involved.

But in recent years she says the agency, which is responsible primarily for investigating claims of child abuse and the placement of children in foster care, has increasingly removed children from their own homes and placed them in foster-to-adoptive parent homes, a practice she believes is getting out of hand.

“The role of CPS has changed over the years,” Ketterman told The Paper. “They have become too powerful and have shifted their focus from offering guidance and support to acting as a punitive force.”

In the past, the agency provided in-home services in a bid to stabilize families that required some assistance, thereby keeping children in the home. Ensuring that no child abuse was occurring while keeping the home safe overall was the agency’s principle focus.

But in the 1960s and 1970s, there was a marked rise in child abuse awareness, which led to amendments to the federal Social Security Act – provisions that greatly expanded the roles and power of child protection agencies around the country.

The system is corrupt
