It never ceases to amaze me how people who have absolutly no clue what they are talking about are the first ones to scream at the top of their lungs. Those who are lost somewhere in their own reality and believe the mush they are served by those in charge of Chip Protective Services. Yes, I got more hate mail. The thing is – it is really sad when I am accused of not knowing what I am talking about when in reality it is the person who is spouting off at the mouth who knows nothing. They need to go back and get their facts straight before they play with the big boys. I have spent over twenty years of my life researching and dealing with DCF/CPS I know how they operate inside and out. I know what they are thinking before they even think it.
So with that being said, let me just post something actually three things from “momtotkn” who didn’t even have guts enough to sign her name to any of the three comments she so rashly wrote. Here is your fifteen minutes of fame. Enjoy.
Comment: number One
“Quite honeslty, I find your blog to be ridiculous and you appear to be very
uneducated with your grammar and story telling. I Don’t think you have a clue
how foster care works. You can get up to how much a month for these kids? IT’s
not the ‘norm’ at all to get 500 a month per child. In fact, the rate is 14.60
a dayfor younger kids, and most people spend more than this on clothing and
food for the children”
She needs to go back and read her Title IV- Funding manual. And or someone is lying to her big time. I have the manual for Georgia and yes she is from Lagrange Ga or the surrounding area. (Yes, I do my home work) Now the lovely comment about the fact that I appear to be uneducated. If that were not so laughable it would surely piss me off. If she only knew how educated I am. Really that is the best shot she has. She needs to do her homework.
“I am a foster parent and have never gotten reimbursed for christmas or birthday
gifts. I think the limit is 50$ per child for christmas and $25for birthdays. I
spend well over that on my foster children’s presents.”
Really- did you keep the receipts and turn them in along with the other receipts you are supposed to keep for reimbursement? Try again, As I said before I have the Title IV funding guide. I also have the breakdown for Georgia. In fact it is on this blog in a post if you know how to find it go look.
Comment #3 Love this one
“I think you need to let go of this battle. It’s done. There
is more than blood family. Adoptive parents can be more ‘real’ to a child than
their biological family, when the biological family has done nothing to take
care of the child or protect the child. YOu might want to stop spewing your
venom, because one day these girls will find it and read it, and see what you
have written about their adoptive family, and they may want nothing to do with
First of all Lady and I use that term very loosely. There is nothing like blood no matter the circumstances. Every child wants to know it’s family and don’t fool yourself it will happen to you. Second of all those children were never ever abused. Their mother was just poor. Third of all no they would not have sent them to Texas it would have meant losing federal dollars. And yes they will want something to do with their “blood family” when they are older. Trust and believe. You have no idea about this family or those in it.
Time for you to do your homework and live in the real world. If you were asked to take a child and not earn money the question is would you? The answer probably not!
