DFS forgot my granddaughter at drug dealer's home for days.

Postby Kimberly9303 » Tue Sep 22, 2015 9:57 pm

There was a hotline call made on my daughter and her new boyfriend. There were drugs found in clear view. My daughter was charged with endangering a child and possession of opiates. They arrested my daughter and took her to jail where she remained for 3 days. The homeowner (boyfriend) present at the time was not charged. My 4 yr old grandson was taken into dfs custody immediately. My sweet little granddaughter who was 5 yrs old at the time was supposed to be picked up at her school by dfs. She was forgotten about and left with the assumed drug dealer (boyfriend) for 3 days. Doesn't this mean that dfs did not do their job? They failed to make contact with my granddaughter (therefore no welfare check was made) for 3 days. Is this enough evidence to show gross negligence by dfs? They are trying to terminate my daughter's parental rights. Please help!
