FROM PART 2: In March 2014, a Hancock County couple, along with their five children, were thrust into a child-protection case that left the family torn apart for months. Almost a year after getting their kids back, the couple watched closely as a familiar name emerged from a criminal investigation involving a child-services worker accused of forgery.
A single mother from rural Hancock County walked into the sheriff’s office in 2015 with a stack of documents and an allegation that sparked criminal investigations into what may be the most secretive government entity in Mississippi. The woman told investigators a child-services worker had forged a document and used it to take away her child.
The allegation, described as “disturbing” by Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam, was the first of several lodged against the Mississippi Department of Human Services throughout 2015. The other allegations included document tampering and children being sexually abused while in DHS custody.
This is Part 3 of ‘Fostering Secrets,’ a six-part investigative series into Mississippi’s child protection system.

DHS Workers currently in court today have been using the peoples fundamental rights to freedom of speech and to associate with and impart ideas, in an effort to trash mothers whom have had their children removed unlawfully.
Seven DHS Workers including Sally Twycross are currently sitting in court proceedings wasting thousands of hard earned tax payers money because they do not like the fact that they have been named and shamed on various websites across the internet. There is nothing illegal about this, in fact, it's the mothers fundamental rights to take such actions considering the amount of abuse her now three year old son has suffered since being taken by DHS when he was just five months of age.
