Reformed Daughter And Wonderful Grandparents...Willard Case

Message from the Willards:
Our daughter's appeal was denied. We now go to adoption court against the great-grandparents on August 5th. Our daughter is appealing now to the Supreme Court of Washington.

I am campaigning. That means this will be short. But, the story is one of CPS charging forward with their minds already made up. Lying to the judges...they have absolutely no cares for what they have done.

The Willard's daughter was promised by CPS that if she relinquished custody of her little girl (Lilly as reported here) that her parents would be able to adopt Lilly. (That was lie #1. They can not make that promise and there was no paperwork to make them hold to that.)

The state took Lilly and put her in foster adopt with the 26 year-old single woman who had put in an order for a blond blue-eyed little girl.

I entered the seen. You know...just trying to help. The foster adopt filed an ethics complaint with the Senate (something that CPS probably said would be fun for her to do). I won. There is actually nothing wrong with a legislator trying to help a citizen from a lying bureaucracy. Personally, I think more should get involved. But then...I think government people who lie should be held accountable.

The state did a second home study replacing some lies (the grandparents stole a computer, etc) with other lies (Mrs. Willard was on dialysis and had breast cancer, etc.). Nothing happened to anyone because of the lies told to a judge. Nothing good was ever said about the Willards in the home study.

While all this was happening the MOTHER, sobered up, started school, and got a job. She has her own place to live. She petitioned to have her child back in a timely manner. Lilly never would have been taken if the state had not promised that Lilly would go to her young (45ish) grandparents.

With my intervention and some special political connection of the great-grandmother, Lilly was placed with the wealthy GGPs. That is certainly better than having her with the unrelated foster woman. So, that at least is a plus.

The court, today, ruled that Lilly's mother can not have her back and there will be a adoption hearing for the GGPs who have had "Lilly" for many months. The mother will appeal this ruling from the Court of Appeals. She is appealing to the Supreme Court of WA.

Please see the case that was decided in this court just a few weeks ago. The case of AB is reported here in PRR. The system is just fine with the lies. For them the end justifies the means. But the mother and the Willards, the hundreds of friends that the Willards have, and at least one that this monster of a government agency helps kill kids (one a month) on one hand...and takes kids and redistributes them on the other.

Madame Senator..One year and one day in jail for any social worker that lies in court for the procurement of federal dollars.

Everything must be on the record in court, therein the truth lies.

Accountability does not seem to be in the vocabulary of DSHS. If the truth is admitted at this point they open themselves up to many more huge lawsuits.

Ms. Dreyfus and Ms. Revels- Robinson..What are you doing to prevent your underlings from acting in this manner??

You promised change! I see the same BS. Your department is operationally dysfunctional as this case proves.

You will be held personally accountable.

Fire the people that make you and your department look bad.

And to the Attorney Generals Office..You look equally as bad by letting this department that you defend get away with this.

The payment of these lawsuits should come out of your operating budget..maybe then you would think twice..or not.

Hi Pam: This is the same story for my niece and me. Mother was tricked and lied into giving up her rights by CPS, and CASA with promises I would adopt her. BTW not ONE of the conditions these people signed on their bogus "contract” has been honored (just a piece of toilet paper to them), not visitation for the mom, no pictures, nothing. Of course you know the rest of the story.

What they are doing now is "parking" kids with relatives because this is cheap labor, most often costs nothing. This is in actuality slave labor by US Code 18 definitions. Then after they've tricked the parent into giving up rights ~ ca-ching! Auction time!

The lies are disgusting. If just ONE of these lying workers were held accountable and fired, it would be a relief, but more would be a delight.

The worst part about relinquishing parental rights is they NEVER tell you about the right to give the child over in guardianship to a family member. This takes CPS and CASA out from under the whole thing ~ and sadly all that money they want based on how many kids are taken. Where if guardianship is signed over, the mother keeps her rights and the grandparents can take the child.

Ohhh no, but we cannot have that, can we? God forbid if they allow a kid to remain in the family and give some room for the parent to grow! Why, who gives a darn about the kid, that would mean these agencies would LOSE all that money (sob, reaching for a kleemex to hide the smile)!

What most grandparents and parents want for their children is that they grow and it is an easier transition for the kids if they are in family with mom around and grandparents there for them all. But then again, boo-hoo! That means the agencies have to give up money for the kid’s happiness. You got to feel sorry for an agency pretending to do what is “in the best interest for the child” when in fact, for them all, judges included, it is really “in the best interest of my wallet …”

I pray that the Judge has compassion for Lilly on the 5th of Aug. and will do what is best for her. That would be to return her to the Willards!!
