Little Lisa Is Passing Blood And Has Part Of Her Colon Hanging Out

Instead of being home and under the comfort of her biological grandparents and natural mother, little Lisa (fresh out of the hospital) is back in daycare, generally.

She has had rotavirus diarrhea for over a month! Her diarrhea is full of blood!!! She has a protrusion from her anus. She is bleeding in that area. She turned three in August.

One of her two day care facilities will no longer take her. SHE IS SICK!!

She is using pull-ups again. Lisa was "potty trained" but not any more. And the diarrhea is a terrible mess...right there at the daycare.

Her mother went to visit today but no one had the courtesy to call her and tell her Lisa would not be in daycare today. CPS is really a rather rude bunch. They couldn't give a rats ass if someone has to take three bus transfers to see their child only to have the child not be there.

CPS wants this child. They are unrestrained in what they will do or allow in order to get her.

And, there are no apologies. It is just the way CPS treats people. No R-E-S-P-E-C-T. One of my colleagues says that the average CPS worker lasts under two years and then they move on to other government posts. Maybe attrition rates in this department should be studied. Decent people do not like adversarial activities when they know the department has gone too far.

I am no doctor but I have never heard of a child getting a rotavirus and then having their colon protrude from their anus.

Just everyday ordinary common wisdom indicates that had Lisa been taken to the doctor/hospital timely that her diarrhea would not have been so severe that it caused her colon to prolapse. But on second thought I can't find anywhere on Google that rectal prolapse is related to the rotavirus.

Somebody needs to get a second opinion from a neutral doctor whether the prolapsed rectum is related to the rotavirus- or if Lisa was suffering from the prolapse BEFORE the rotavirus.

My God people, take a stand, let your voice be heard. This has got to stop. Will they only be happy after she's gone!? Is that how they figure they will get this family to shut up and back off? What the hell does the hospital or Dr. have to say about this? Are they not mandated reporters? And why is this little one going to daycares? Sounds like a real loving fosterhome...so loving the fosterperson can't even be bothered to take care of this little girl. Good Going DSHS....another notch on your belt! You must be so proud!

This department has "gone to far" on many families..
They are so cruel and heartless. That baby needs to be with her family not shuttled back and forth from foster home to daycare. This has to stop. It is an outrage the way they can get away with treating families and children. She is only three years old. How can she ever recover from this.
They have too much power and money.
They answer to no one.
Seems the courts do not care either...Where does that leave families...Pam you are a ray of HOPE.

This is an all to common happening with children in care. Not always the same illness, but most definetly the same blatent neglect. The responses I have recieved are almost always the same from DSHS. "They are a licensed home " We will look into it. I have found that reporting a foster home approved by DSHS to DSHS for abuse is just a waste of breath. I have called and sent police on one occasion when I knew the address. That child was placed in kinship care in less than a week. That foster mother had the gall to state in court, her concern that the child that almost lost his leg [due to her neglect] would not recieve the good care she could provide him. Thank God the Judge was provided pictures by the parents. I would hope anyone having any knowledge of this childs wherabouts and the condition of this child will call the Ombudsmans office. The Governors office, The police! No child should be sent to day care when they have just been released from a hospital.I guess foster pay does not cover lost wages. I am so personally done with the neglect of children in foster care. In this case this kid has been fed human fecal matter. The lies and deceit that DSHS constantly provides to the courts. How many more children have to die before it stops.

Pam, I would like to comment on the person who said they were not a doctor and questioned her illness. We visited our grandaughter in mid Oct. and were notified that she has bad diahrea. Just before court last monday the social worker informed us that our grandaughter was at Childrens hospital for severe diahrea and her colon was protruding. The social worker also informed us that she was diagnosed with the virus 10 days prior. But yet the foster kept her in daycare obviously because she didn't want to be bothered with caring for her. So, that means our grandaughter had serious diahrea for atleast a month! Don't get me wrong, because there are fosters out there who do it for the children. And for that we thank you. But there are others who do it to supplement their income. And that becomes very clear who they are. And one big question I have is, how many of these kids in foster care truely don't have family willing and capable of taking care of these kids? In our case we have alot of family capable. But the state refuses to place with family. To the Lee family from our family we truely are sadened at your loss, and our hearts go out to you. God Bless everyone for your support! little Lisa's papa

"Serious diarrhea for a month" Ummm, HELLO? Isn't that classic child neglect? Didn't the hospital and doctors who are mandatory reporters report the foster mother??

I think its time we try to look for help from people about CPS and the whole state of Washington.

as a former foster child and experiences with cps i can attest to the fact that the biggest problem is the size of dshs which cps falls under and the foster care system...the next biggest problem is money...and ideas good idea that the money can be spent on to affect change...also there has to be oversight as pam has mentioned along with the systematic restructuring of dshs into smaller angencies...the tradgedies we read and see on a regular basis will not end until the welfare of childeren in this state becomes a priority with the state budget..i may be a moderate democrat but this should have nothing to do with party affiliation this is every ones problem and i commend senator roach for being part of the solution...
