490 days ago a little 9 year old girl with autism,in British Columbia, Canada wandered away and was very happy when found and returned home! All was well until ............... 3 days later Child Protective Services, MCFD, asked dad to voluntarily give her up to custody to lighten his load. That did not happen! So they abducted her from school and he has not seen or heard from her since and although he was promised regular reports, the few he got probably ended a year ago.
So she has been living in a foster house in a locked basement apt with paid staff watching her - costing taxpayers thousands of dollars a month. This is crime against a child, punishing her because she is autistic and wandered away for a few hours. Do you punish your autistic child when they wander?
IS THIS HOW YOU WANT YOUR TAX DOLLARS SPENT TO CARE FOR OUR CHILDREN?
There is no concern about dad's parenting abilities or the care being provided since he still has his 2 sons and one is autistic. If CPS felt dad needed help why wouldn't the government of British Columbia (and right across Canada, North America, globally) provide in home support where this little girl is loved and thrives?
Perhaps some answers will be provided in court finally, pretrial hour this month , trial beginning in Dec with last trial date 69 days later in Feb 2013. (these dates were chosen back in Jan 2012!
