KATIE MOVED TO NEW FOSTER HOME - KATIE TRAUMATIZED
Certainly it was wrong to have taken a cancer victim out of her home and away from her parents and family. This can never be in the best interest of the child that has cancer and a loving and caring family that honestly wanted to see that she got the right and best treatment available for her.
If the state thought the parents weren't capable why wasn't Katie placed with relatives as required by law? Why did CPS lie in court documents that there were no known relatives to place her with when they had names of all of them and one testified in court she would see that Katie received the treatments?
Katie was moved to Houston away from family and relatives, which makes visitation difficult and financially difficult. Katie was first placed up there in a foster home with 11 other children with various medical needs. This was a bad medical decision on CPS's part for someone like Katie undergoing chemo and needing to be in a home where no one is sick. The fewer people she is exposed to the better.
Now Katie has been traumatized by being moved to another new foster home. She didn't need this mental, emotional, and pyscholigical abuse at this critical time in her treatments.
The legal definitions within the Texas Family Code of abuse and neglect are:
a: mental or emotional injury to a child that results in an observable and material impairment in the child's grouwth, development, or psychological functioning;
b: causing or permitting the child to be in a situation in which the child sustains a mental or emotional injury that results in an observable and material impairment in the child's growth, development, or psychological functioning;
a: the leaving of a child in a situation where the child would be exposed to a sustantial risk of physical or mental harm.....
b: placing the child in or failing to remove a child from a situation that a resonable person would realize requires judgement or action beyond the child's level of maturity, physical condition, or mental abilities and that results in bodily injury or substantial risk of immediate harm to the child;
c: failing to seek, obtain, or follow through with medical care for a child....
d: placing a child in or failing to remove the child from a situation in which the child would be exposed to a substantial risk of sexual conduct harmful to the child;
Is CPS guilty of neglect and abuse of Katie? You be the judge.
