I attended this meeting. The first thing secretary Dreyfus stated about children is how resilient they are. DOES THAT MEAN THEY WILL BE OKAY NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE NEEDLESSLY PUT THROUGH?
Given CPS's long history of intentionally failing children I am skeptical. Even if Susan Dreyfus wanted to create an ethical altruistic child welfare system for Washington State there are many ominous and onerous obstacles to overcome and she could not achieve this on her own.
Tellingly I don't think much will change this is based on Washington Family United Lobbyist Dave Woods recommendation that Pam Roach should be Washington State Washington State Children Administration Assistant Secretary and it was noted that Susan Dreyfus declined. In my opinion Pam Roach if willing would have been the better choice.
There are many vested interests at work maintaining the current faulty status-quo of child welfare.
Number one is the adoption initiative and quota no doubt supported by the unnecessarily gigantonourmas foster care industry and their deep pocket well organized lobbyists. CHILDREN ARE NOT A COMMODITY.
Number two big problem is the plethora of Non-Profit organized involved charities and or service providers. Many of these institutions also are totally unaccountable and there are many politicians, Judge's,Attorney Generals,Public Defenders,CASA and or their spouses who sit on these boards. If these all of these Non-Profits were ethical or accountable and did not pay the hands that feed them this would not such a conflict of interest to "BEST INTEREST OF CHILD."
While I am on that subject "BEST INTEREST OF CHILD," I believe that all documents should read "Best Interest to Child because" this statement as most often currently applied in legal proceedings or determinations involving children need not even consider the child at all and this loose definition only helps justify the intentional failure and deliberate disinterest prevalent in family court and by Our Politicians and CPS; CHILDREN AND FAMILY'S DESERVE BETTER!
