"What Has Happened To Her To Date?" ...Asks A Reader

What does Pam Roach want!!!Why is she such a ****,****,****. (This is a family blog.)

I want the State of Washington to follow the law. And, personally, I would like to have a picture of me standing in the front yard of a neat little Enumclaw home, with a little 3 year-old, her mother, and her loving grandparents. It would be a picture I would hang in my office as a reminder of love and perseverance.

Little Lisa to date?....

*She lived the first 9 months with her grandparents. Her mother was 16 and unmarried.

*The grandparents cared for her and did everything they could. Grandpa left his job of 15 years to get a position with better insurance....for the baby. He had the car glass tinted to keep the glare off the baby's sensitive eyes. They provided all needs and were loving grandparents. No one has ever said any thing different. The baby loves the grandparents.

*When 18 months her mother came home but this time decided to take the baby for a couple of weeks. When she returned the grandmother thought the baby looked a little weak and did not want the mother to take her again. Over that the police were called.

*Mother and baby were sent to two different "homes" in Tacoma. One house, provided with your tax dollars and approved by DSHS, had 13 people and one bathroom. Two wrecked refrigerators laid in the front yard. In the second "home" the mother and baby were housed in a basement bedroom with another mother and her two children....that would be 2 unrelated adults and 3 children in one bedroom. Neither home was supervised. The grandparents hauled in a bed as none was provided. They took needed food.

*Lisa's mother argued with another troubled girl and that is when the state took little Lisa.

*Now? She lives with a single 43 year-old woman who was a troubled teen herself. The state has placed an infant there too. Lisa goes to back to back daycare. Five days a week she goes to Childhaven and then is bused to Kindercare.

*She came to daycare with a black eye. The mother noticed it on a supervised visit. I called the police to report it for the mother.

* Lisa has only been allowed five visits in a year with her grandparents. In February, Lisa clung to her grandparents and cried when the social worker dragged her away. It was heart wrenching for everyone...even the social worker.

*Recently she arrived at daycare with food up her nose.

*Lisa loves visits with her mother. When the little girl became upset because the mother's visit time was over....DSHS reduced the number of visits that the mother could have!

TO DATE???? SHE HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM HER FAMILY, DEPRIVED VISITS BY FAMILY MEMBERS, KEPT FROM PLACEMENT WITH RELATIVES WHO HAVE PASSED IN-HOME STUDIES, AND SUFFERED DISTRESS WHEN SHE HAS DESIRED TO BE WITH THE PEOPLE SHE LOVES. THE DEPARTMENT HAS DEPRIVED THIS LITTLE GIRL OF HER RIGHTS!

THE LEGISLATURE HAS SAID THAT DSHS MUST FIRST PLACE WITH RELATIVES. NONE WERE EVEN CONSIDERED! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS. THE COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATE (CASA) WHO IS SUPPOSE TO REPRESENT THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILD HAS PREDETERMINED THAT THE GIRL WILL BE TAKEN AND PERMANENTLY PLACED WITH THE FOSTER ADOPT. THE STATE TRIES TO ALIENATE AFFECTIONS BETWEEN THE CHILD AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY. THEN, IF THE YOUNG MOTHER BREAKS ANY RULE THE CHILD WILL NOT GO TO FAMILY, BUT BE PLACED WITH THE FOSTER PARENT.

STATE LAW IS BEING SHOVED ASIDE.

Note about the little girl: Little Lisa is perfect. She is not drug affected. She does not have Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The mother is learning as she grows up. There is no precedent in law that says you terminate parental rights if a teen tests positive once in 9 months for alcohol as Lisa's mother did

For all of you out there that do not know...

As Ms. Roach so perfectly describes her frustration with this department called DSHS.

Imagine if you will the frustrations of parents who do not have anyone advocating for them for their children. NEVER sign agreed dependency orders..If you do ,you are admitting that you have done something wrong to your children. Take it to trial. The public pretenders and the SS will try to intimidate you to do so. Please do not fall for this trap. I am not giving legal advise..just what I have learned from my experiences of working in the trenches with families.

When Ms. Roach is having these problems with the department, imagine a parent, not educated in how this system operates. What are they feeling? You bet, they are mad as hell! So now you the parent are mad as hell..so you must need anger management. And on and on this will continue. You can never win against the state, as they have more money. The attorney General's office works for the state. They will lie to win their cases ..or they get fired.

I have no idea where these case workers and the CASA's learn to write the reports that they do. I will tell you this..that they all sleep with the enemy. Casa will very seldom if ever go against what the department wants and the judges listen to them as well. They are all involved with this trickle down effect and profit at our families expense. However, some family judges are getting smarter aabout the departments abuse of power.

The department will tell you just to relinquish your children because no matter what services you complete and hoops you jump through..you will never get your children returned to you.

I am here to tell you..never sign your rights away..no matter what they tell you..NEVER!!!

As an advocate for children and families..I hear this told to me on a daily basis. Get the real picture in your mind..They just want your children..at any cost.

This is one thing that you should all know..There is no money in it for DSHS if they place your children with family..or adopt them to family. Understand..please that all your children represent to them is dollar signs.

None of this is in the best interest of our children. You must be willing to to anything and everything for your children. You are in for the biggest fight of your life.

As an advocate, I can only offer you my encouragement. You need to tell your public pretender this and mean it. " You are either going to fight for me ..or you are not..and if you are not going to fight for me and the return of my children..you are fired. You have 2seconds to respond."

You see we have all been there. They took my nephew and adopted him out to strangers..And I will tell you as GOD as my witness, I will never stop fighting for those of you who need our help.

This is all about the State of Washington getting that Federal Money..and it is in the millions of dollars. They don't care about our kids..IT IS THE MONEY.

If you only knew half of the information that we know about this system and how it opperates.

How disgusting.This poor child and mother.Any child that would attend daycare with food shoved up their nose or black eyes would be taken INTO custody!This Federal Funding needs to be shut down in Washington and people need to lose their jobs.We go to war for oil but sit back and watch a "protection" agency kill and destroy families.What a country!

After doing a little research,I am very curious where is the Braam panel? "Foster children have a substantive due process right to be free from unreasonable risk of harm,including a risk flowing from the lack of basic service and right to reasonable safety." Just how can so many of the panel members also works for DSHS.If they are in a Braam meeting,they can say one thing but in a court room,it all goes out the window?!Keep rocking the boat Pam.These kids are so worth the fight.

Hundreds of thousands of children, babies, and families have been destroyed by CPS. CPS is the same all over the world: vicious, brutal, totalitarian thugs. Please, everyone, spread the word about CPS. They can come into your home at any time (and they can easily get a warrant from one of their corrupt judges) and take your baby or child. All it takes is one anonymous phone call from a "friend" or a stranger. Anyone can make that anonymous phone call, alleging child abuse, at any time. If this ever happens to you, you will be destroyed in the worst way. Don't wait for hell to happen, expose CPS now!
