THIS WAS MY COMMENT TO THIS BLOG POST PLEASE GO TO THE BLOG AND COMMENT!
I wish that the First Lady of Florida was really a child advocate, while I appreciate child literacy and healthy life styles I feel that she has much bigger issues, such as the corruption in DCF, the private for-profit companies that run DCF that allow social workers to own stock, the case plans that do not reunite the families, parents signing off their rights because of threats and so much more.
I am not surprised as the rate of adoption going up with all of the incentives, and our number of children in foster care from April 2010 to April 2011 has rose statewide 32% and some counties much more. NCCPR reports.
I have written her and never received a single response, maybe if I was opening a new library she would care?
When we live in a state where judges can throw the court reporters out of the court room and shut of the tapes then something is wrong.
Why can DCF not give parents a paper explaining their rights when they first come into the home? Why are they not required to record every visit? Because then they could not lie in court, manipulate evidence or bully parents.
Once again I request that the First Lady Ann Scott really be a child advocate.
