Lance Hillsinger, a Child Protective Services (cps) social worker for thirty-four years, has completed his new book, “In Place of the Parent: Inside Child Protective Services”: through heart-wrenching, heart-warming, and even sometime humorous, true stories, the reader sees how the juvenile court/child welfare system operates and how “the system” has changed over the author’s career.

Lance writes, “Nationwide, every year, over 250,000 children enter foster care. They are placed there by child protective services (cps) and the juvenile court. Do caseworkers go about their job as competent and compassionate professionals or as paper-pushing, uncaring bureaucrats? Are juvenile court judges fair to the child and the parent? In Place of the Parent: Inside Child Protective Services takes you inside the courtroom and the inner workings of cps.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Lance Hillsinger’s new book is a brilliant tool for readers to be informed and enlightened in the inner workings of these services. The reader sees parents struggling with addiction and other issues, the lives of children of those parents, and how “the system” tries to make things better.

Readers can purchase “In Place of the Parent: Inside Child Protective Services” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
