CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO DCFS IN WASHINGTON STATE

1,751 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 3 children that I am desperately fighting for. My case is set for trial Nov.17th .. 18 days from today. I am taking it all the way bc that is what's RIGHT. The last few months leading up to this point, things have begun to crumble. The progress/ completion that was, and has been seemingly holds little value. Compassion, empathy and understanding of life's variables or ones position isn't taken into context. "If it is important, and you're capable you'll find a way, no matter what. Won't you?" Trying, and doing yet not getting the complete support, concise direction, or clarification from the officials that crucify, cajole, manipulate, assume and abuse their power. I have completed many services. I have good, solid relations with ALL my service providers. I have been honest, and true as that is all I can be, especially in matters that contain my heart(s)... Yet with the department one thing is said, & another is on paper? They're building a case against you, not for you from the beginning. And whatever is written/ concluded is as TRUE as if God himself paraphrased the whole calamity?! There are rules/ guidelines not being followed. There is a level of professionalism that isn't being adhered to everyday, in so many ways, for varying reasons by to many. To complain, report, correct or justifiably push against this twisted system is just used against you in one form or another. They decide, they "know" what's best. Professional state appointed parents that have at least 4 years of schooling and a certificate in a profession that is projected to increase by @ least 20% over this current decade... Therapy, pills, and some "nice" strangers to care for, love and comfort the 3 little one's( that have never been separated, or away from you for more then an extended weekend) is what is best now. As my mind uncontrollably replays my reality I am conscious. I am accountable. I am real. My intentions, mistakes, progress and set backs I own. I have dedicated myself, to my mission this battle of obtaining my breathe again. And I have a 60% chance..?.. Messages not returned, meetings cancelled, communication between legal parties not happening or not accurate, new case worker a month before my trial, new GAL 2 1/2 months before trial that has yet to actually make it to an observation, children's permeate placement no longer an option... 2 visits left with my kids before trial and I have to tell them something. I can't even describe this constant state of emotion or head space.. Consumed by the pure fear of a looming injustice, another casualty case of the system.. Something has got to give these are my children this isn't fair ,this isn't right. How many more lives have to be affected? Hearts torn? lives forever changed before some swift and serious corrective action is actually executed? Is it the work, the mess, the damage, or the certain law suites that cause this to be constantly ignored. Pushed aside disregarded 'CPS conspirators resentful ra

The lies and pain need to be stopped.
Stop ripping kids away from their family's under false regulations. Makes me sick.
I live in California and I am experiences the same type of neglect from CPS. If the DCFS in Washington is worse, then something needs to be done. I'm signing this in the hopes that something is done about this, and that it also helps other states follow suit.
Three of my eight children, the ones that are most adoptable, are being kept in the system while the older ones have all been returned to us. Lies are all being told to the courts by the case worker and his supervising crony.
Please help! ! DCFS/DSHS/CPS/DLR ; Region 4,West Seattle,Region 2,King County have been conspiring by stealing children away from vulnerable,trusting families who cannot afford defense other than state approved public defender's. There is a obvious pattern of corruption by the same authorities who are on boards,councels and committees. I am certain I can provide names of a few who have acted inappropriate and deceitfull representing cases which end in termination or adoption . These children are suffering and surely will grow up with personality disorders which in turn will result in unproductive adults. What are these people thinking!!!!! Is money so important to them that they are willing to lie straight faced to the rest of us.
The agency which I am referring has a "DUMMY" file they use to file allegations against me. I Know this factually because an Attorney was able to get my file to me. But I am still waiting for my file to be released under the PRA act. and have made several formal requests to obtain my file from the cps office who handled my bogus cases. I was told during the last dependency hearing that I was not allowed a civil trial because there had been judgement made at my fact-finding that I was found guilty of "coaching" my daughter, who had made several disclosures of sex abuse done to her by her father. She is still living with her father. The rumor in my town is that her father's mother is moving up from another state to care for her as he is been noted as not caring for her. This is outrageous news because she was maliciously taken out of my care without probable cause,liniment danger or due process. Who is going to save my child?
Greysharbor county does do everything in there power to steal Kids. I have a open case since june,they have nothing on me at all,Social workers keeping me on the said as I continually asked who was the state attorney for me, Mean while as the social worker keeps talking to me in the lobby the judge is signing a order for Shelter care, I live 6 hours from this county, Greysharbor and the state attorney all knew My case qualified for a change. They kept accusing me of drugs that I have never consumed not even alcohol,UAS weekly and a hair folical. They have nothing,they knock on my door one day and tell me to leave the county now, I was gone in 2 days,As soon as they knew I was gone they filed papper after papper in superior court fulling knowing where I was at 6 hours away I spoke with them on several occasions,while they filed away and Never notified me. There is so much more. I am the only living walking human being that they have come across that you cant bargain one child for the other. When they released my 7 year old they did a reintake on him and will not give me a closure letter. this whole agency needs to be investigated,the corruption in every aspect of the CPS system in greysharbor county Washington. Not to mention the foster home that my 7 hear old was in locked the small children in the room with a clip on the outside. My 7 year old undid the clip and let the crying,screeming small children out.The foster mom got a shoe string and my child couldn't let the small kids out. I reported it, Im sure they did nothing about it. this county truly does steal kids and will go to whatever means to try and get there leverage, to use it against you. Well not me, Yep im a good girl that has lived with god as my shield:) My case is active and I am on the hunt for a attorney that fights for the kids,that this vicious county steals.
My wife killed herself after losing our 4 babies because she was a stay at home Mom who suffered from intractable seizures and I was trying to work to keep food and shelter. Our kids were never abused or neglected until they went into foster care where one was sexually abused by a much older child. It broke my child's spirit. They destroyed our family. Most of the caseworkers in Clark County have napoleon complexes because they have unlimited legal resources to fight against a parent who isn't afraid to stand up to them. How dare anyone question a civil servant who's paid with our taxes??? .......
