May is Foster Care Awareness month and DCYF is of course focusing on what they want to sell to the public. They are claiming that 800 children will be " IN NEED" of a Foster Home" this year due to parental neglect and or abuse. Well that is just HOG WASH!
The fact is that is there weren't so many witch hunts and case workers with control issues who are absolutely dead set that they are going to take away a parents child just because they don't like the parent there would probably not even be half that amount.
The fact is that NH DCYF case workers do not use foster care as a last resort and in most cases they use it as a first resort! They do not offer services when they are supposed to.
AND the fact is that more often then not there is a family member like Dorothy knightly more than willing to take their family member so that they do not have to go into the foster care system, BUT...the control crazed case workers refuse to put the children with the family members just because they have a personal dislike for them.
meanwhile millions of dollars are wasted not mention the real issue that thousands of children's lives are ruined because of this issue.
DCYF needs to stop covering up the real issues. Yes I believe there are some honest and good people at DCYF but there are many more dishonest, control crazed people that need to go. It is them that not only are hurting NH's children but also give NH's DCYF case workers who are honest and trying to do a good job a bad name.
So the honest people who have any power need to step up and speak up or nothing will change for these kids. There will still be kids being taken from good homes for no reason and abused kids being left to die.
