Grandparents rights for custody and visitation

Messages Sent So Far
Department of children services can take your grandchildren ! Grandparents have no rights in the state of Tennessee . My grandchildren were taken and I filed for custody but was denied because the children was my sons children . They did not give a relative replacement a chance. The parents of the mother are very sick and could not take the children. My sister remodeled her house just for my grandchildren and she was denied custody. The department made up all sorts of things as to why neither of us could have custody. The d c s didn't even give my petition a chance. I had other friends and family that could have helped but d c s had already decided to adopt them out. D c s refused to help the parents with a plan for reunification of the family. I will never stop fighting for my family . I will persevere even if it means till they are 18. Foster families are not required to keep the children after the age of 18. Look around on the streets and in the homeless shelters and talk to the young people and you won't believe your own ears. I have helped some of these young people in Cleveland, tn. I can put you in touch with them. Do you wonder why our youth is so broke and hurt? Do you wonder why the crime rate is increasing. Please see website : department of health and human services/initiative program/special needs kids.

Grandparents need to have rights to their grandchildren. Please allow them. Agencies are destroying families at an alarming rate to get their federal funding... There in lies the real abuse....

Today's society is changing. It is no longer the 50's. Drugs are destroying the family unit. Give the children of this era a chance and give Grandparents rights. Thank You.

I am a grandparent in Fl trying to get custody of my granddaughter in Tenn. DCS must be getting kickbacks for adoptions, They said its too late the adoptive family have already started the process my daughter just got court date for her rights to be taken on Sept 28. Her attorney told her court was the 29th so she would miss it. Someone is not giving these parents or grandparents the chance to have their own blood children. What can we do? Thank you
