Time to bring them home.
As most of you Samantha is on her twelth caseworker in two years, this one’s name is Erica Smith. This one finally decided to show up for a visit this morning and it was stupid at best – asinine at worst.
The first question out of her mouth was “Did you show up for court on the 17th?” Really? Obviously this is either and attempt at humor (not)or she herself didn’t bother to show up and we know she didn’t and or she has not read the file (You Think).
Her next question was is this your permanant address? She is currently staying with a friend of hers because Jackson County DFCS refuses to help her find housing as they are supposed to do under Title IV funding and reasonable effort. The next stupid thing she said was “Do you have mail her with your name on it.?” This question was posed to Samantha because the father of the children had told his attorney who told DFC. (Really) This is just another tatic by Michael Wilfawn the father to keep Samantha under his thumb. Which is what abusers do, especially those who are in prison and no longer have control over their victims.
Then the coup de grace of stupid questions, “Are you seeing anyone?” What business is it of Erica Smith and Jackson County DFCS is she were? T
This entire visit aka inquistition was a fishing expedition for a couple of reasons, 1. She didn’t bother reading the case file. 2. the prior caseworkers have left the building and departed for parts unkown, and the last and most intersting is they are now playing catchup because they assumed they had a slam dunk case and Samantha was going to lose her rights as a parent. They know they have no case, they know that the children should never have been removed in the first place.
Jackson County DFCS and the newest member of the revolving doors Erica Smith are no on the wrong horse.
