CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO DCFS IN WASHINGTON STATE

1,651 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 with DCFS in Spokane to get my grand daughter back to Wenatchee where she belongs. Her mom kidnapped her and took her to Spokane and claimed that there was domestic violence by my son. There is no proof of domestic violence and actually, we have proof that there was not, the police notes from when they showed at their house. She is currently in jail for 2nd and 4th degree assault DV and they have my grand daughter in Spokane foster care because they want to reunify her with her mother and Wenatchee is too far away for that to happen. My son has no record, works, has a house and the mom has no job, is an alcoholic, drug addict that likes to assault others. But because of her lies and deception for the last 4 months, my son is not allowed to be alone with his daughter and must have supervised visits. I would be able to take my grand daughter, if I lived in Spokane, but since that is not happening, she is living in Spokane with a stranger while her mom sits in jail for the last 10 days. I thought DCFS was family first, but obviously not in this case. They believe all the lies she is saying while she has the record to prove that she is the violent one. The judges also side with DCFS, so there is not fair justice in this system.
CPS is investigating my family for abuse due to a disgruntled neighbor calling after i caught his 29 year old son breaking into my house. Neighbor made up false allegations, now CPS is threatening to take my children. I can believe i fought for my freedom for the government to take away my children. My children are the center of our lives, we live for the happiness of our children. CPS says we are guilty until we can prove we are innocent. They lie lie lie there way into your house, then see nothing is wrong and find something to build a case. My house is impeccably clean, but she sneered at a cereal bowl in the sink and toy under the table. They show up holding a piece of paper that is supposedly a court order. When i asked to see it, it was blank, not signed. CPS is legal kidnapping for profit. They are destroying whats left of the family, protecting the real criminals, foster parent in it for the money, not the love.
I live in Spokane County and they did the same to me as well.... I am/was a single mom of 5 beautiful girls and did what I was told to do just to have them twist the reality as well as truthfulness of the situation then throw it in my face in court.... of course the judge had no clue.... he is more inclined to listen to the department over the parent.... especially when the parents not allowed to speak up in court per her scatter-brained and unorganized public defender.

Loosing my girls really ****ed me up emotionally and mentally. My girls were my world, my everything, all I really knew in life and once they started removing them from the home; my second oldest then all four of my other daughters all on false reports from my step-sister and manipulation of situations that occurred within my situation.

Just because these people do not think they would be able to be a single parent to five girls close in age did not mean it was impossible. I WAS DOING IT...... NOT ONCE DID I BEAT, BRUISE OR HURT MY DAUGHTERS. THE WORSE THING I DID WAS PUT THEM IN TIME OUT IN THEIR ROOMS
DCF massachusetts ruined my life so i feel for these people. the governement doesnt care about the kids or the parents. only one third of mass workers are licensed and 95 kids have died in mass under DCF since 2001, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. God finally get up and do something about it. god knows i will never shut up. neither will the other 2000 in mass who DCF destroyed.
My daughter Lisa has been trying to get help for Ana my granddaughter ,talking to counselors Doctors, and Mental help advisers to give Ana the proper treatment, for her mental health problems,to no avail. The CPS, is letting Ana call all the shots instead of having her evaluated,for proper treatment, Lisa has exhausted all her resources , please help us get Ana help, before it's too late.
My daughter Ana has been diagnosised with BPD and has made 7 false cps complaints against me after threatening to kill her grandparents, myself, being hospitalized for suicidal ideation and being in therapy for 4+ years, recently she was restrained by 5 police officers for kicking out my door and window of land rover and threatening to kill herself in the parking lot of her therapists office! CPS has her in PC Foster Care at Spruce Street Inn... She's been out of therapy for 3+ weeks! CPS took possession of my child under dependency law because I am a threat to my child! They never requested any police reports, never interviewed family, community etc! LaQuista Carter and David Richards - DSHS CPS, NORTH supervisor closed this case based on "not a cps case but a mental health case" 3 days later I am in court! NOTHING has been done to help my child!
A very unjust system with no concern for the children. The supervisors dont follow up about complaint's.
I have had CPS lie to me and coerce me and my family. At this time they have removed my daughters child on false allegations with no proof at all. The original case was founded on a statement never made! They are the most corrupt organization I have ever run across and have no concern for what is best for children. They only want to remove children and place them out of the home so they can collect their bounty. One of the court commissioners actually accused my daughter of killing her child who died of SIDS! So we are being punished and the other child taken away for losing a child to SIDS. Inexcusable.
