But, this high school friend of the grandfather went public when she filed that complaint. Before she filed it I could have used her name. But I didn't.
At the end of this blog I am going to post a link to a site that has information about this case. I did not write it. I did not research it. I do believe the information to be factual.
I have been threatened in a nasty email (unsigned) that the child would never go back to the family... and only on to yet another foster person. I believe that was the email of a DSHS employee. This person knew too much about the case to be anything but one of these conniving elitists.
I want the state to follow the law. I am asking nothing more than that DSHS be accountable to the law and for their actions. And....I believe that is what the public wants!
Unfortunately, DSHS is in the press too often. Children die (eight in Pierce and Kitsap county since the first of the year) because lawmakers and the public do not make demands! I am making those demands! And, I am being ignored.
I tried every avenue available to me to get Child Protective Services to follow the law and instead they have done everything in their power to take this child and permanently put her with someone else.
The system is broken on both ends. You know they can't get it right when it comes to taking kids from bad people. It should not be a stretch of the imagination to believe that they also take children from GOOD people.
The biological mother in this case had marijuana and liquor as a teenager...but not to excess. The child is not drug affected. So, how bad could the mother have been???
If the state terminated the parental rights of every unwed mother who had even one drink of booze in a period of nine months....we would be shipping bus loads of babies out to foster adopt families. And that....is apparently exactly what they want.
THINK OF ALL THE MONEY THAT DSHS WOULD GET TO DO THAT! My Gosh...what a bonanza!!!
Warning: this blog DOES reveal some of the names.
