@familyprotection started 6 months ago, for the purpose of sharing stories of CPS and Foster Care abuse, being a support system and educating the public.
We hope that getting these stories seen and heard may help protect families and children from ever being torn apart in the first place.
Also, with the funds that we are beginning to collect, invest, and grow from the Steem Dollar donations of those who have written with our tag #familyprotection, we hope to help families in crisis and further spread the word of these atrocities against families and children.
We have had SO MANY people on Steemit share their own personal accounts of trauma and tragedy at the hands of CPS agencies.
This is a list of people who have shared their own personal experiences here on Steemit in the last 6 months.
