CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO DCFS IN WASHINGTON STATE

2,259 Letters 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.

I have been fighting cps for two yours they have torn my family apart. I have done everything I went to inpatient graduated did iop graduated did op graduated doing anger management did mental health have been discharge did two classes of fathers maters classes did parenting class did them all. they have me and my wife so stressed out and depressed that we got in an argument i received a dv 4th degree assault and now they say im done my kids are going to be adopted off. i haven't even been found guilty of the crime but cps has already convicted me of it. my lawyer is getting the assault charge dropped but cps seems to be the judge and jury of my fate with my kids.they have told me either sign my rights away to a relative or i will never get to see my kids again. they say they look out for the safety of my kids but when they picked my kids up in Olympia to take them to a foster home an hour away they didn't even put my kids in booster seats they brought them to my visit and again my kids where not in booster seats not even i would put my kids in that kind of neglect but cps can do anything they want.I have turned my life around been clean and sober for nine months and i am attending Grays Harbor College taking human services to get my AA and become a chemical dependency counselor but still my kids will be adopted off.What kind of justice is this?
my 3younger children were taken by Dhs and its been hell my husband and I have complied with Everything they have ordered but Dhs hasn't and went behind the judges back even yet the court doesn't trust us and we have paper proof where they submitted and were falsifying documents: also they have refused all my family with relative placement even though they had approved home studies done and are very stable loving people: they haven't let them see them or my other older children for 7 months they are baby snatching liars and something must be done everyone of you families are going on our prayer list God bless
My three children where taken Jan 2013 because I was on Meth and not being a good mother. Since then I have been clean for 15 months I have finished every class they have asked me to do Now they (CPS) are saying because of my learning disability ( I'm a little slow) that I can have my kids back. Even though I can cook, clean, shop that public bus go on school outings I do have family support also who will help me I feel they are convicting me with out me being able to do anything about it . So yes I will stand with you for my kids and others. This is wrong I want my kids back with me... They took them because of the drug use not my disability
MY GRANDCHILD WAS TOOK FROM PRICE UT FROM CPS WITH ALL LIES THE JUDGE TOOK ALL CPS LIES DID NOT LOOK AT ANY PROVE I HAD WE NEED TO STOP CPS THANK YOU
I have been fighting with C P S for the past two years. they placed my two beautiful daughters with their great aunt. since that time she has been lying and manipulating the system and though I have made considerable progress from where I was in my life I feel there is nothing further I can do. every time I feel that my life is going back on track, I get called into the CPS office for a reminder of just how little control I truly have over my life since they have taken over. I should not feel so powerless in a system set forth to help families. my children start acting up when they're in the aunts house and I get blamed. my children run away from school while in the custody of the aunt and I get blamed. and yet when on visits between me and my girls they never have an issue act up or misbehave.no I have records to prove this knowing that the office seems to be interested.no matter what bad things happen, it is my fault. Whatever good things happen gets acredited to the children staying with Aunt and "how good of a job she is doing".I would like to join those of you who can truly understand my pain in fighting this corrupt system in making it better for those who truly need the help.
We are trying to get our baby back from cps
I I would like to join in the battle
I am fighting to get my daughter back from the state. I am happy to stand behind you in this battle.
Destroying families and hurting children while they say they are trying to help. Families, friends and children are all affected by these CPS workers that aren't willing to take the actual time to get to know them but instead jumping to conclusions. The gravity of long-term effects on these families that are unnecessarily going through the system is substantial and harmful to everyone involved. The system needs a change now!
I am a mandated reporter in WA state due to my job. I have reported multiple times to CPS on behalf of my boyfriend's 2 children & their baby sister. The mother is at this time unfit. CPS however refuses to remove the children or do anything about the situation. My boyfriend had a team meeting at the Tacoma, WA office today with the mother and the caseworker. The caseworker tried to tell him he was the one who was losing visitation (illegal for her to do mind you) and she told him that even though I am a mandated reporter it is hurting his side of the case and that it is just a bunch of petty complaints that are piling up on her desk. I'm over here like what the hell...I'm mandated for one so yes I will report what I legally have to but how can anyone say that an adult (mother in this case) neglecting to get her children proper medical care, proper school enrollment, driving around high with the children in the car and refusing to make them wear their seat belts among many more things of this nature is not cause to remove the children. And topping it off she also said the reports for one child's school counselor is petty as mine and she won't do anything. We did not even know until last week that the school counselor had been not only calling CPS but the local law enforcement as well. Something needs done about these caseworkers. They are failing our children and their families.
My story is another like the other parents and grandparents. My granddaughter was taken from her mother in Bellingham wa. as she went to prisonfor eight years.my son went to court and the judge released her to her dad he then brought her back to walla walla.Soon after the cps was at his door saying they were supervising her. But he could put her with a family member and she went to live with her aunt and uncle, what was suppose to be six weeks untill they get paperwork done . It was all arranged. my son thought that he was going to get to bring her home monday. He gets to their office and they tell him that they never said that because the worker was on vacation.They then said they were going to place her in a foster home.This has been going on for two years she is now five she will never have a normal childhood courtesy of cps. And the irony is he hasn't done anything to loose her. They have lied and made this a game and the only thing they are worried about is the mother getting to spend time with her while she is in prison.I am going to take a recorder in the meeting with us on monday I',m giving it to the news and let other people know what they are putting family's through for litteraly nothing.and its time someone exposes them for they baby snatchers they are.
My children were removed and 2 lived on the streets. One was adopted out to strangers! She came home as soon as she turned 18! They have nothing to do with her since they had to pay SS Back for the checks they forged and no longer get money. I took her to pick up her 12 years of memories and clothes! It all fit in a duffle bag! Adopted children should not have a check tied to them. Far too many sickos out there!
