Some Estate Leaders Advocate for Break Up of DCF

HARTFORD, Conn. -Eyewitness 3 News - Parents attended a Department of Children and Families hearing Thursday to voice concerns about the organization.

They said the state is quick to take children away and won't give them back, even if there is a family who wants and loves the child. Trina Porter said she has spent two years trying to get her niece, Isabella, out of state custody. She said Isabella was 2 years old when she was taken away from her mother.

Linda Holden said her adopted daughter, Chelsea, who has behavioral problems, has been in state custody for two months. She said Chelsea was only supposed to be evaluated for four days.

She said that when she was allowed to visit this week, her daughter was heavily medicated and suicidal.

Thursday was the fourth and final day of hearings. Some state leaders recommended breaking up DCF to make it a better agency. The committee that conducted the hearing will make recommendations to the General Assembly at a later date.

When my mother was kidnapped the DCF helped the kidnappers plan their escape route and assisted them in remaining undercover until a West Palm Beach Judge put a stop to the whole charade. I had a hard time understanding why, now after reading all these articles I understand why, legal kidnapping is a big part of the racket, it comes natural.

If DCF is to survive as an agency they must change their mission to keeping families together and not just pretending, there are a lot of good DCF people that really believe in what they do unfortunately the corruption up above- affect us all.
