Aside
Non Profit, no funds, more casualties

Child Services does not have enough supports from the community and government to protect all the kids in the world, more or less their community. 

 

I was going thru the channels…yes again. And came across a women…Nancy Grace asking why “child service returned the child after removing from mom for 10mths”. Well…lets see…per the state, it cost a lot of money to remove a child from the home, the first goal of the family and worker is reunification. If a parent works her case plan and follows the shit poor rules of the state, she can get her kids back. What a parent mind set during that time is..no one knows. But these “parents” are the same parents capable of harming their child/children, same parents that can clean up well, same parents that “plays the role” for the state, and collect food stamps, medicare, and etc …that may or may not turn around and kill their child.

Nancy, do you really think that everyone is capable of reading peoples minds. Do you really think that case worker isn’t killing her self knowing that child is dead. Its not the workers, its the state, its the lack of funds to get foster homes, its the lack of support from the community to foster a home for a child, its the massive intrusive paper work it takes to foster a child, its the lack of power the workers has because despite what he worker observes, per policy you must return the child if the parent does what they’re suppose to do. Per policy, even though there has been massive police reports, school reports, witnesses that have heard, seen, or reported this family social workers have limited power to remove a child. And if they’re able to remove a child, they have no where to place the child because no one comes forward to house these precious babies. 

Your blaming the wrong people. Yes we are outraged that this child died at the hands of her mother they way she did, but we are outraged and fed up with the way the “system” works. 

The worker followed state rules, and I am certained the social worker and a million other non-profit worker witness this, report this and see no resolution until a body is found. There is not enough social workers, or man power to help these poor babies. And the state agency do not honor their workers pushing them to work 50 HRS PLUS A WEEK. There is no overtime, you have to flex…mean while you have a few court reports due, and children your worried about. No one wants to help, but everyone wants to blame and point fingers.

 

C’MON!! WTH…insensitive. 

 

Oh by the way, your making mucho money off your show…good for you. 

 

Disgusted,

RANT on values suck the life out of us.

Work and no play. Play and no work.

What happens to us after high school, or college? What happens to people who are forced to transition into the “real world”. What is the real world.

I gotta tell you, I just don’t know anymore. the more I see the news, and the more I walk this earth I see why people loose their minds and go off the “deep end”. Drinking, drugs, strippers, over eating. Life gets in the way, or life becomes to overwhelming that you can’t find magic, or happiness because your to busy trying to stay a float. 

40 hour weeks, get longer and the pay looks the same. Bills trickle and before you know it, you don’t even see your paycheck because it sucked in. Do we need cell phones, the internet, cable, a car, childcare, food, electricity, water, gas, alarm systems, animals, doctor visits. The shit is ridiculous and COSTLY!  

Then you watch the news (if you have the right channels/cable) to realize you can’t trust anyone with your kids, not even family at times. You might of went to College or University and owe thousands of dollars, and now you have the degree that was suppose to be the “Ultimate” success, but now you basically pay a car note monthly to honor your loan, stay in good standings just to work at a job that pays a little higher than the min wage. Oh but he min wage has been increased, your paycheck hasn’t, your responsibilities “as assigned” have quadrupled but your stuck with the same pay and you see your family less. Let alone, your losing your passion for life, for things that once made you smile because of sheer exhaustion. You put more out than you receive, No one is paying you your worth or recognizing that your working hard to keep up with the impossible goal or “action plan”. 

Its become so ridiculous…I see why people get us and move to Europe or they head to the smallest island where life is simple and the focus on work is minimal. You can actually stop and enjoy life, people, and still make decent income bc a descent home doesn’t cost you your life. 

So they have raised min wage, do you think they have raised wages across the board for non-profit workers? But ITT gets big bucks. We don’t care for our people like we should, we don’t value humans.

Get rich or dye trying is what we do every day. I know that job you have committed and dedicated your time and skills to should be honorary to your commitment. They should be willing to care for you when your sick, show their gratitude for your time spent improving the community, and “data.” 

Non-profit workers do so much for the community and they get the shorter end of the stick. We don’t help each other. WE see our kids dying; murder, suicide, suffering from behavioral health management, foster homes, abuse, hungry kids, lead to hungry adults. Our system has gaps, it was designed to help, but it does more damage. Unable to maintain workers because they are burnt out within 6 months to a year. I am one of these workers, my heart is big, my passion is countless, I wish I could do more…so much more that I dream of making a difference. But those dreams are shattered when I walk into the office and see more paper work needed than me out there with the people that truly need coaching in the right direction. There is no direction to go to, there are no services. It could be because when we did have services people abused them, it could be that services were given to the biggest liars, and actors.  It could be that we have more needs now than we have ever had. Or it could be that people need to be smarter when making babies to think further, knowing that kids need formula, diapers, to be with other kids their age, in school, help with homework and be loved for the rest of the life. I don’t know what it is, I don’t have a solution, I just know that it hurts to see people in pain, it hurts to know that people are being taught that it okay to step on people who are trying to make a difference just to get ahead by half an inch. Its like when your in traffic and someone cuts in front of you, just to arrive at the same destination at the same time. Its pointless!

I just can’t stand to see the route the world is going. I’m scared for my kids, I’d like to believe my husband and I would be here forever to protect them…but everyday we wake up, we know we take a risk of the unknown. Should I think like that, is it healthy, no its not. But there is no other way…I worry. I worry about my kids, my family, my community, your community, your kids, your family. Because it affects us all.

Sept 11, 2011, December 12, 2012, Treyvon Martin, Our troops…oh my gosh, our young men and women that want to make a change, want to protect America, but we don’t have enough resources to help you once your out in civilian life.   Amber alerts, people killing children, parents dealing with this, siblings dealing with a loss, or shootings that take a life of two, or 50, 100’s 1000’s, behavioral health unfunded, CPS workers trying to make a difference but at not able to because of policy, critics, bullies…and the list goes on.

Today isn’t the only day that i think of this, it will not be the last time I think of this. 

How to deal, when your eyes are wide open and you have been exposed. I am not numb to what is going on…but I am in survival mode. 

Upset and disgusted, but expected to carry on. 

Pray that the lord give us strength, bc we all need it to get thru our day.
