Foster Parents; CPS “the color of law”.
Part 6 of 6.
In part 4-5, we were asking you to read a document we came upon during our research, are we boring you? We know how hard it is to read this bureaucratic rhetoric, were almost done, keep reading for your own good and more importantly for the children you must speak on behalf of.
- As we said in part 5, you did not know you have the right to speak up on behalf of your foster children, shame on you. Why you need to learn all you can. Who will speak up for that little one if not you?
- A foster parent needs to be aware of the rules or how can you play the CPS game.
Your examiner has one question for you, did you understand most of what you just read, in parts 4-5 of this series?
What state were we quoting from?
We just picked one at random, Utah.

Did you read the rules and regulations you signed with your agency?
How can you obligate yourself to rules and regulations that you are not familiar with?
Have they changed at all since you signed them, did you get a copy of them, your contractual agreement?
Do you know your state Statutes, the ones relating to you as a foster parent? Didn’t think so.

Conclusion; have we determined correctly that what CPS attempts to do when they come to our doors demanding entrance is under the “color of law” according to what the definition of that phrase is? Are you now aware of your rights as an American citizen under the Constitution? Are you obligated as a foster parent to allow them entry? If you can answer these questions then you have learned.
