CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO DCFS IN WASHINGTON STATE

Messages Sent So Far
We are currently in a battle, like many people I have been contacted by, and numerous people who have spoken with me regarding corruption in Washington State by Caseworkers and their supervisors. In our case we were courted by the state to adopt my great niece, because her mother could not care for her. They said, we really want to keep her in the family. Numerous homestudys visits from AZ to Spokane later we brought her home. A new caseworker took over and as the adoption neared she was removed from us and is now in foster care. We have never received a official reason for removal. The caseworker has told family members, agencies lawyer all different stories but will not put it in writing. Now we have learned this is not a uncommon practice. Caseworkers have their "favorites" in the state they seek to help find the "perfect" child. Sadly we learned money does change hands and children are removed needlessly from Biological parents and family members eager, able and willing to care for these children. Families are being destroyed and effected for the rest of their lives. It is our understanding this has been going on for a long time, we are just the latest victim. We need to stand up and have the whole department investigated. The time has come to protect these children and families.

For the love of God & Family why is CPS being allowed to get away with kid-napping and selling children? We are supposed to be a country of family values so why are so many families being torn apart? Why is there not a louder outcry? Where is the investigations of these cases? The workers, judges and attorney's are all in this together. Who is willing to take on these people and create change. We need HELP..

My teenage son was removed from my home after he went missing and was called in as a run away. Upon returning to the home after being absent for 6 days, breaking into a bedroom window, a called was made to the police as a burglary in process and he was placed temporary into a facility while I put together an intervention team. While there CPS got involved without no due cause. They interviewed him without my knowledge and then kept his whereabouts from me after he ran away again once I had him come home. They munipulated all aspecst of the information that was provided to them, though not ever talking to me once. They finally informed me I was being investigated as I did not sign a volunteered paper to allow them to help me. They "Founded" me as abusing my son by neglect. They filed for dependency with these false allegations and kept delaying the process for me to have a day in court long enough for my son to age out. My whole family is destroyed from their neglect in the due process of gathering information and looking into my sons history of delinquency problems.

A woman was accused of biting her son on the check and of course the case blamed the father. Rather than make the give custody of the children to the father who was stable the continued to stay with this mother. An older cousin apparently was molesting the her son's older sister. CPS was called nothing was done to the older cousin and the situation was brushed off as a made story. The girl to this claims she was molested to this day and got no support or help for this problem. The mother of the older cousin was believed lock stock and barrel. The girl who was molested was put on the bad/wrong medication. The girl had to take his daughter to a hospital to get her treatment double and have the medication change so she could half way function. The mother of the daughter married a convicted felon (her second husband) who scared this girl regularly. The felon second husband wound up in jail and would send threating letters to this girl. The girls father complained and nothing was done by adult services. Finally this with the help from the people in their local church was moved into her own assisted living apartment to get away from this mother. The mother in the last three years was put into jail for assault of an elderly neighbor. The father of this girl does have any criminal record and a good government job and is stable yet he was labeled the problem. Thank for nothing CPS you guys are worthless.

i saved my three year old grandaughter when i found out her parents were heroin addicts and living in a van . I flew to Las vegas, and got gia. She was screaming for her mother, so I brought them both to washington. My daughter was arrested for domestic violence toward me, i took care of her for a year, and when my daughter had been in treatment, and in outpatient under the advice of child psychologist, I returned her to her mom, while I got a day job. I had no babysitting available at night. I was told that if I give her to her mom for short period, I can get better job, and cps will turn to me for placement. Lots of awful details cps and poliice took gia from her daycare, They have lied about me, and made up awful lies. I do not drink, smoke gamble do drugs, or had any police arrrests etc. They have stolen gia and have not allowed her to see me my heart is broken they have stolen her I have proof that evertything they say is a lie I got gia in daycare, headstart, counseling, church wic etc. My beautiful daughter ( looks like mila kunis) is living on the streets, and is a heroin and crystal meth addict. cps has done nothing to try to help her,

My case has been open for 4 years and i still don't have my children back! I have done all recommended services, had no previous charges or dirty UA's and CPS continues to harass me ! They lie, cheat and coheres people into saying what they tell them to say! Stevens county CPS (Jackie Burcher particularly) will do and say anything to rip and keep children away from their biological families! They say their main goal is to " keep families together" but that is the last thing they actually want!

I live in Olympia where we have an abundance of resources available for people in need and when I faced homelessness with 2 kids I was sure we would be ok. I had a meeting with my daughters principal to ask for the school's support, talked to homeless liason, went to family support services, called the family shelter every day for 3 months telling them all that I was afraid that C.P.S. was going to take my children. Again and again I was told that it was ok, and not to worry. Not only did they kidnap my kids, but I have been blocked at every turn since then. Terrible attorney, can never reach social worker, constant cancelled visits and the worst part is that when I first spoke to the caseworker she said "Now that we've talked and you've explained, we could have avoided this." When I asked her to give back my kids, she said, " Well, we're probably going to try for a dependency anyway." And my family has been suffering since. Kathryn Diane Taft
