When CAS takes a child from mom and dad, he is gone forthwith. But reunification? That has to be a gradual transition over months. Here is a case in which CAS has decided to change foster parents while engaging in gradual reunification. The foster switch will take place abruptly this weekend.
It doesn't make sense in the best interest of the child. But it does keep the funding stream going for a few more months.
Lori Miller I have been caring for my 2 year old grand-daughter, child of my eldest daughter, for several months. Recently, my youngest daughter was sexually assaulted by an extended family member, who has since been charged, arrested and as far as we know, is still in police custody. However, due to the assault, CAS was notified and have since decided that my grand-daughter may be at risk and is removing her from my care as of this coming weekend. This is absolutely ridiculous, there is absolutely no risk to her safety whatsoever. My grand-daughter is already beginning her transition back in to her home with her parents. This 'move' is certainly not within the child's best interest and we need help a.s.a.p. but it seems as if CAS is untouchable. Please help....looking for someone to do a story for us that might open up some doors to help. I have my whole family and numerous friends as support and even all our voices aren't enough. I have contacted so many workers, government officials and media that I can't keep track but am running out of time....my grand daughters well being is at stake.
