Grandmother Bari Willard has begun her march from Anacortes to Olympia where she will be on Monday for a visit I have arranged.
Christmas was on a Friday and therefore the department did not honor her visit with "Lilly." Nor was she allowed to visit her granddaughter last Friday because it was New Years.
Today she arrived (walking) to the office in Mt. Vernon to visit Lilly. She had been given no call what-so-ever about the cancellation of this visit. It is Friday. This was the day for a visit.
"Oh, Lilly isn't here," said the social worker. "She is in Mexico with her grandmother." (That would be her great-grandmother.)
Not even a courtesy call from CPS. Nice people, aren't they? Grandma was in tears. There is absolutely no consideration for this woman. They lie about her and vilify her and ignore her. What do YOU think about this?
The following is an unaltered comment I thought I would bring forward. My comments are in parenthesis. The reader writes:
"What about the other Grandparents?Her fathers parents,a lot of untrue things are being said. (Lilly's paternal grandfather is a several times convicted felon with prison time and drug problems and has never been a consideration for placement.) For one she saw her father more than a few times he was a good father and would have most likely won custody he was to be in court the day he was put to rest. (Hello...he was, as you put it, laid to rest. He died in a terrible car accident. How can he possible care for the child...are you OK out there?)She is in a very fine home where she is loved and happy. (She was in a very fine home where she was loved and happy before the state lied and took her.) Talk to the other paternal grandparents lets here their side!"(Those are the felons. They are in frequent contact with Lilly as a matter of fact. That is a fact that if it were true of the maternal grandparents would be used against them. It has not been a problem at all for the state in their placement of Lilly with the GGPs who parented the felon...oh well...no big deal huh? Randy Hart and company?
