As you read Heather's account of her family's contact with
the CPS, ask yourself:

Who are the real child abusers?

Five Days in Foster Care Prison

by Heather Eley, age 15

                  Heather Eley, age 15, lives in Winchester, Indiana, with her father, David Eley, and eight siblings. The above story was told by Heather, six weeks after her mother, Pam Eley, died unexpectedly at home. An important backdrop to the story is the long-standing animosity from Pam's side of the family (Cox), who do not approve of the Eley family's strict religious practices, such as home schooling and wearing modest clothing.
