CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO DCFS IN WASHINGTON STATE

1,703 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.

Critical review and reform of this governmental organization is in deep need. Those who are considered professionals should also be accountable for their actions.
I have been trying to get custody o my childrens half sister from TX. The judge in TX has already agreed that she can live with me, pending that I pass a home study. After I went through all of their classes to become foster care certified they denied my home after only visiting it one time. They refused to give me any reason as to why. I literally passed all back ground checks, income requirements, and all the other hoopla they put me through. I even have full custody of my nephew. Both her parents want me to have custody. Because of Spokane CPS not approving me, she (who is 15) will most likely age out of the system in Texas three years from now. She feels so unloved and betrayed by CPS. I would like to have laws made that held them accountable for decisions of our children. I want them to tell me why they would deny a child her right to a home and her family.
I got my kids back from cps almost lasted 2 years.on friday they took my kids from the school no call was made to me. After they where 15 mins late coming home my boyfriend called the school and got transfered to a detective. He then went to meet the dectective i had to go to work so i can pay the no good sob. So they held my kids over the weekend into tuesday my worker called me at 11:00 am to inform me there was a meeting at 1:00pm. Wow they lied the cop lied and all they do is twist and turn your words. I used the knowlage i learned the 1st time with there classes and now there saying i did it wrong. My son has adhd and the school that called the detective cant control him for3 years hes fine for me. So rip them out of a home that loves them for what? I just paid you to steal my kids

I am the single mother of 6. I was a nursing student and my mom watched my kids so I could go to school. A lot happened but 3 years ago my kids were taken from me. About a year and a half ago my 3 older kids were returned to me. The foster people two different sets of foster people want to adopt my 3 youngest and the state is trying to terminate my parental rights. One day in June the former GAL (she is no longer a GAL) came to my home while I was at work and took my 10 year old daughter but left my 11 year old and put my 10 year old back in foster care. Two of my kids are with abusive foster people but the state turns a blind eye. They lie and make things. The department and the attorney General's office are constantly lying and can get away with it. Why is this ok? Does anyone know what I can do?
There is a lot of corruption coin on with the government. Caps. Police. Senate . Even all that way up to the white house Nd another thing yes they r destroy in families. The richer r getting richer Nd the poorer r getting poorer. We the people need to step up Nd do something Nd maybe******will change
I am the custodial parent of my niece due to court order after the Caseworker kidnapped her from her daycare.
An anonymous caller made a false claim and this caseworker rushed to the daycare to steal my niece away and placed her in foster care until the 72 hour hearing.
This caseworker can barely speak English and no one in the court room could understand completely his account and reason behind removing my niece.
No one will allow my sister to provide the actual reliable evidence that she has proving this caller made a false statement, her court appointed attorneys barely listen to her and make no objections in court.
There is no abuse reported.
How exactly does that equal imminent danger?

When I ask the caseworkers, casa reps, and attorneys when this will all be resolved they all tell me it could be years... YEARS!! What?
What a waste of time and money and don't get me started on the abandonment and behavior issues this has now caused in my niece.
Obviously the State of Washington has no idea what the well being of a child is.
My aunt should be getting my little cousin Peyton this is ********
Sometimes its hard to make the right choice but sometimes they are lazy and not doing ther JOB!
My nephew is currently in fostercare and our family is having difficulty getting placement. The CPS worker wont consider me or even run a background check no reason given and will not return my phone calls and the same goes for her supervisor. My sister who is the grandma is also being hassled as well as my niece who is the mom of the our little peyton.
Caseworker took a newborn away from mom and grandma. The baby had family willing to raise him. This case worker was rude and didn't try and she lied to the family.
Something has got to be done about our states broken unjust system, caseworkers have such large case loeads because they are taking children and destroying families of non abused children, when in fact their job should be to protect children from harm. My daughter recently had a baby and she's developmentally delayed and the nurse reported bonding and attachment issues. The social worker and her supervisor took baby even though I as her mother is available to help her. My daughter is not stupid, she is 18 and just needs some parenting supports in place such as parenting classes and etc. The baby is not in imminent danger, yet a nurse can lie and CPS is quick to jump in and act and continue to take bits of truth and fabricate it to huge lies. If children are taken based on lies and CPS has to lie in order to keep children, doesn't that say something about the system? One should not have to lie if there is truly a problem within families.
Whatcom county and specifically Maple Falls Wa is I swear a baby farm to these people of cps I have seen time after time families ripped apart for the sole purpose of a baby to adopt out. The violate rights, break laws, and in fact lie and trick these women and men into submission and make it impossible for them to get their babies back. Hearsay is their law and government is not in charge of these caseworkers they do what they do based on their uninformed personal opinions of what THEY think is right. They take the word of liars without a second thought because it serves their purpose. They don't look for ways to help but instead the whole time they set you up to fail.
DCFS have taking our 3 grandchildren and have separated them all. They wonít give them to us cause the oldest grandchild said i spanked her, but my husband is a monitor. my son and his wife have followed every rule they have given them. DCFS family court judge and lawyers donít follow innocent until proven guilty there is no balance in family court. Its a nightmare. Now they donít want to unify the family. How do i get my grandchildren back!!!!!!
