After a ten day wait...the termination trial resumes today.
The state spent three days bashing the mother mostly with stuff that was heard last June. This time the issue is that the mother tested positive for alcohol. It was the first positive test for alcohol...ever! The mother weighs about 105 lbs. The test that was given was not for alcohol but for drugs (she tested positive one in 18 months for marijuana). The expert witness said the test was not reliable.
(Interesting note: while the mother has never had an alcohol problem the state has put her in alcohol counseling...for the money they get...and to better position themselves to take the child.)
The grandparents who raised the child for 9 months wait in the hall. The aunt and uncle who passed the in-home care study (that the state hid from the judge and allowed to expire) wait to hear the daily progress. The evil CASA has now spent 1,000 hours trying to take this child from her family. He has had a lot of practice. This was how he made all his attorney money in CA. (When he doesn't get his way he gets livid angry...he is a scary man!)
The Three-Year-Old remains with the single foster adopt who has also been given an infant boy by the state. Little Lisa goes to taxpayer funded daycare 50 hours a week. She stays in a home with an active restraining order out on a former boy lover of the foster parent. God only knows how many men go in and out the door. CPS sure doesn't know.
Lisa showed up at daycare with a black eye and CPS has expunged information from an email about the black eye. The day care worker point blank asked the child: "What happened to your eye?" The answer was expunged with a black felt-tip. (I saw this email.) The next time the department sent out the email the direct question was taken out of the email. They would have you believe that the question was never asked. CPS should come forward with the email. Let's just say that the cover-up tells me they don't like the answer the girl gave.
I have tried numerous time to get that email made public. DSHS/CPS is covering up and lying about the content of the email. They want that child!
The foster adopt says she has never been married. Yet her name is different than her maiden name. And, when you look her up in the white pages on line...you see there is a man with the same last name listed at that residence. A man answered the door when process server went to the house. The man at the door said, "She doesn't live here." Who was the man? The foster adopt said there was no man at the house. Clearly...that is not the case.
The Foster Parent This is the woman who filed a complaint against me because she doesn't like this blog. (Really, it is just so much easier to take a child if no one knows anything about it...Right?) I believe in open government. We should know WHO would adopt our kids over the rights of GRANDPARENTS and OTHER RELATIVES. We are allowed to know nothing. And there is very little standard for who gets children.
This child belongs with her mother and with her family.
