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.

I have a special needs niece being falsely accused out of vengeance for something she has nothing to do with. She received threatening texts, and all of a sudden cos shows up. This is a crying outrage.

CPS Evie Ahrendt is incompetent PLEASE ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS HAD AN ISSUE WITH THIS WOMAN CONTACT ME PERSONALLY by email. She is culturally incompetent and uses racial profiling. She needs to be stopped. Our child has Autism and she has absolutely no expertise in this area.

Hello my name is Ian Slanga, I am a father of two daughters, 14 and 13. And my wife is on disability. In the month of March our landlord had sold the property we were renting. And promised us some money to move out in thirty days. I desperately looked and looked and packed, and the thirty days came to end. Luckily I had a friend that had a boat house garage down by Long Lake. It has electricity, a well for water. We had talked to some friends, so the girls would have a place to stay and take showers. While my wife and I stayed in the garage. And continued our search. We saw the girl almost everyday, and made sure they were taking care of , and sometimes they would stay down at the garage. Where I set up a microwave, crockpot, TV and a queen size bed, with ample blankets. Then my oldest daughter started hanging out with a friend that convinced her to go missing for five days and then file for a Chin's. And when CPS contacted us they shoved paperwork at us and did not inform us of our rights. I have been poking around and a lawyer told me to find legal aid, and not to sign anything more from them . I feel we were blind sided and our daughter was not in any danger, we did not neglect her. And I have said this to CPS , is that if our landlord had given us that money, and we had been able to get into a place. This would not of even be happening. Any advice I would like to know what you think.

Earlier this month my 2 year old son was removed from my home over shin bruises that were reported to the social worker as part of the safety plan. When we were in court the following day the social worker claimed they had not been reported when in fact they had. So my son was pulled from me i dont understand the drs even stated they are normal and non abusive bruises. This has caused me and my son unnecessary stress and emotional turmoil. The case originated from a call on my ex for a bruise on my sons butt he claimed happened from a briefcase. All the experts from childrens hospital in seattle said that story was not plausible. My ex even admitted he could have caused those bruises on our son. The recent mark on my son while in his dads care was on may 10th i had picked him up from daycare and checked him immediately like the safety plan says and my son had a huge discolored bruise on his butt again i went through every hoop and called all parties involved. my son was placed with me and his dad had supervised visitations. For the whole time i had my son fully in my care he had zero marks zero bruises other then half dime sized shin bruises from climbing and banging his legs. One lie from a cps social worker cost me my son and its damaging us both emotionally.
