The subject was the second in-home study that had just as many lies as the first one done over a year ago.
Turns out CPS believes it is their responsibility to contact individuals who know the family and ask questions. These people are the "collateral" informers.
It was an 85 year-old "collateral informer" with dementia who told the department that Mrs. Willard had breast cancer...or maybe she was the one who told CPS that Mrs. Willard was minus one kidney and on dialysis twice weekly. I get my informers mixed up. In any event, you will recall that Mrs. Willard (at 45) had never had a mammogram at that point and so it would have been IMPOSSIBLE to know she had breast cancer. (She then spent lots of money to get the screening and prove she did not have cancer! If she had not done that... then her supposed affliction would stay in the report. But, it stayed there anyway!!!!Even after she turned in the negative breast screening test it remained in the report. CPS did not believe the report!!!) And, of course, she has both kidneys and no bi-weekly machine hook-ups.
The department admitted that they take unverified "stories" and put them as fact into their reports. In my own life, I am very familiar with star chambers and make believe dossiers written by people with agendas. And written because they have the power to do so. They enjoy the hurt and harm they cause others. It actually makes them feel good. Can you imagine getting off on harming people? It is a form of sadism that shows itself when evil people have unrestrained power.
So...in the room yesterday..it was decided that there was no proof Mrs. Willard was on dialysis or had breast cancer. This whole process has taken months. It takes months because the department desires that. They want to be able to tell the judge that there is more bonding now with the adoptive family. It is part of the game, a game that is repeated over and over all over the state.
The department does not care about the truth, apparently. Nor, do they care that a little girl has been wrenched from her home a year ago now.
There is more to the story.
