From a PRR reader:
"Once again, the wonderful Everett dept. has torn a family apart. They lost a baby to SIDS and about 6 weeks later the other children were taken because they felt the mother was grieving TOO MUCH. Are you kidding me? We have something in common. The evil, lying supervisor."
Grieving is different for different people. By the way...has anyone ever heard of someone doing harm to the remaining children when a child dies? Seriously...one in 6 million? If all the kids die then you might hear of a parental suicide. But in your grief you know you have to be around for the others whom you also love and would never harm. My guess is CPS was looking for a reason, any reason...to take the remaining children. I bet we are talking little girls, too. Blond ones? No money in the family? Non drug affected kids?
I think it is important to chase a few of these cases. The new DCFS administration knows that too many kids are being taken. They know that they are not working to place with relatives when kids are removed. These are stated opinions of the new leadership. It is documented that the new leadership will not tolerate lying.
Let's all pray for this poor young mother who lost an infant to SIDS and now has had her remaining children taken. I discussed this with someone I know who counsels grieving children and adults. I hope someone cares enough to watch this young mother. Now she has lost all of her children. Pray for her.
