No one has a copy of the study yet. CPS wants you to suffer without the study in hand. I maintain they called just to feel the pain in some one's heart. I mean...if they had just mailed the study they could not have heard the cry in response. Why else would you have someone wait 8 months and then not just mail it to them. What was the rush except to be the bearer of bad news!
Three sins were recounted according to the messenger:
1. The grandparents rent and do not own a home,
2. The grandparents have had financial problems (bankruptcy a few years ago).
3. The grandmother reportedly is in poor health (unknown source). She is rumored to have breast cancer.
For the sake of consistency I mentioned to Randy Hart (apparently he still works there) that we don't take kids for reasons of renting...or financial condition...or over rumors.
"This is not our best work," said Hart to me.
"Then you should correct your errors and get it right," I said. (Good gosh...a child is in the balance here. Hart is the consummate ass cover for the department.)
Hart said that the department was making changes and the Stuth Case was a good example of that. O.K. so I went after him for that stupid statement and reminded him that the department argued for placement with the drunken foster adopt woman, in the court room, just 18 hours after the 4 year-old was removed on an emergency basis from the same foster woman from which they removed the child. All this proving that Mr. Hart is a revisionist when it comes to history. NO ONE CAN DEAL WITH SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT WANT TO MAKE CHANGES SUSAN. GET RID OF THE RIFF-RAFF. YOU WILL NEVER KNOW TRUTH WITH A GUY LIKE HART WASTING MY TIME AND YOURS.
So...then Hart proceeds to tell me the real reasons that Lilly will not be going back with the good grandparents that raised her from birth. All rumors....
Tune in tomorrow for the grandmother's defense. See again the differences in the way people are treated. See why maybe the hope was false. After all, if you can not correct your errors...but only justify them...you are dishonest to the people and should be replaced. We demand a higher standard and we demand a standard that is already set in law.
I suggested to Mr. Hart that the report had better state the facts of all the community service awards received by Mrs. Willard, the grandmother. He was pretty silent. I am guessing he has read the study though he claims he did not. And, he knows that he has to go back and put that stuff in there. It wasn't in the first home study either. I complained about it and posted pictures of the trophies on this blog. I am guessing they will use this blog to find the stuff....How funny is that?
