She said that Lisa's "goodly" (my term...no one at DSHS seems to like biological relatives) grandparents would have regularly scheduled monthly visits with the grand-daughter they had raised for a year and a half.
The grandparents are thrilled with being able to see their grand-daughter...even if for just an hour a month.
I wasn't happy that these visits had been purposefully and largely withheld for the last 14 months...and that they would be limited to one visit a month. These supervised visits are one hour each.(The grandparents have had five visits in 14 months.)
NOTE: REMEMBER...THE GRANDPARENTS HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG!!!!! NEITHER HAS THE MOTHER TO WARRANT PERMANENTLY TAKING HER CHILD.
SUMMARY: The head of the Department of Social and Health Services writes a state senator and says the grandparents will now, after 18 months, have monthly visits. A...n...d..(drum roll here but no real surprises)... When the grandparents called to set up the visits....they were denied!
A recently released Child Protective Services employee called the division of Child Protective Services fascist. No kidding.
