I picked up my daughter yesterday afternoon from a social service agency. She was on a 48 hour lock out for being physically violent. She bit me. She was arrested and the appropriate agency was called to pick her up. I then have 48 hours to decide what to do, foster care, other placement. It is also used so that your child doesn't have to go to DCFS. They are notified and then they try to help find a solution if they can. Well anyway, I went into this facilty to pick up my daughter. The director who I never met called me into a room with another Director of Services. She proceeded to tell me to quit abusing social service agencies and raise my own daughter. She said that she raised her own two with no help from social service agencies. She said all that I was looking for was a babysitter. She said the state of Illinois cut our money by 250,000.00 and we don't have the time, staff or room for you or your daughter. She was very hostile and really quite unbelievable. I am absolutely stunned. I have worked two jobs and tried to never have any help. I am looking for help from my daughter. Our DCFS is very upset and reporting her for what she has done. She told me that I can sit at the police station all day that they are never coming to help me. I am so mad. I wrote down while it was fresh in my mind exactly what was said and who said it. She was yelling and my daughter was sitting right outside the room and she and the caseworker heard everything. The caseworker who has a heart of gold and has been very good with my difficult child, and helping me was really in a state of shock. Her hands were shaking when I reached to sign my difficult child's discharge papers. Did anything like this happen to you? I am talking to everyone and everywhere that supplies this organization with funding. I cannot believe how a professional acted with a family in crisis. More verbal abuse, just what a stressed out mother of a challenging child needs. URH.
