In reading this story I am horrified. And, I think about how DSHS FOUGHT tooth and nail for my niece and nephew who didn't need "protection".
My niece and nephew were taken directly out of a hospital room over twenty years ago; both born healthy. They were not born to drug addicts or alcoholics. How and why is that possible?
I had a large home at the time and definitely they would have been well cared for. (I lived out of state.) They would have had wonderful meals as I am also a good cook! They would have lived in a nice clean home!
Today, we are separated because of the involvement of strangers (foster care and foster/adopt). Could somebody please tell me how this could happen?
How does it happen that DSHS allows a child to starve, while destroying another biological family that didn't need their services?
The couple who gave birth may have needed a helping hand. However, grandparents and relatives could have assisted with that helping hand. So, while the state makes this child a millionaire and did nothing to protect this child, another biological family suffers the consequences. That is what I am reading into this story!
Thank you reader.
