Another Family Comments....

This came to my FaceBook account. Another heart wrenching account...

"The great grandchild that I raised is 8 now and 30k later I can see her maybe 2
hours a month but this is not about us adults this is about these children. DSHS
abused this child and many others. When will they be held accountable? Thanks to
Pam and the Stuths for bring this to the front. When will we listen to these

Senator Roach,

This law is a landmark law which will give standing to grandparents and relatives. I also want to thank you for all of your work on behalf of children and families. Unless, the state says that an unborn child is not a child this law does give standing to grandparents to unborn babies. Which is what I support. Biological grandparents should be considered defacto parents for their grandchildren before strangers are considered. For the state to say this would not be true; they would have to change every other law involving an unborn child.

Senator Roach,
Once again thank you for what you do for the children and families. These children are just toys for the DSHS to move around from place to place and they say that they do this in the "Best Interest of the Child",right I believe it is in their " Best Interest" or whatever vendetta that they have against the custodial person that had the child, because if it was truly in the "Childs Best Interest" they would return that child to the loving family that they grew up with. Placing them in home after home is very damaging to the child, Oh but wait a minute we will just get them counseling that they did not ever need before. The children are the ones that pay and will continue to pay the rest of their lives.
God Bless you Senator Roach

As long as the department defines "Best interest of child" our children will remain intentionally failed and commodified.
