Oklahoma DHS has hundreds of child in THEIR care that are either "missing" or "unaccounted" for - it's horrible how BAD it is & that is just Altus not to mention the rest of the state DHS offices!!! They waste ALL their time harassing GOOD people that LOVE & CARE 4 their kids when there are tons of kids getting abused, neglected, & even killed. They honestly NEED to get their s**t together & very quickly BUT it will NEVER happen.......so sad!!!!

I hope people reach out to her rather than turning away.
I KNOW for a fact that as long as someone has ANY kind of Bachelor's Degree then you can work for DHS........I personally KNOW 2 people that are "DHS Caseworkers" HAHA anyways 1 of them has a degree in Parks & Recreational Leadership(should be a Girl Scout leader DEF NOT a caseworker) & the other 1 has a degree in BOTANY lol she is an expert at taking care of plants BUT DEF NOT overseeing cases involving families OR children!!! It's really ridiculous!!!

It appears that way...as if nothing happened. What a shame. Due to her criminal actions and behavior, I have to pay more child support money because she was demoted to a lower pay scale. I know this is my responsibility, but I believe she should pay more (as in getting a part-time job to pay the difference). I am not the one who committed the crime.

I'm very sorry for what has happened... I hope those weren't your children. That town lets who they want out of trouble... Only reason she got punished is the attention it got. I personally know someone we'll off that was caught with weight of drugs and got off. His father told me he had to pay off some ppl... I left after being stocked by an officer there for a year with no help from the pd... Keep this family in your prayers

? for EXX
If this is the case-how/why does she have custody of these children.And why is she working for DHS ?
I believe there is many more details to this story then we are reading.Let's all wait for investigation to finish before we pass judgment on ANY of these writings......
Why were these children allowed to remain in her custody after this situation? That's the question. Working for DHS is no glorified career in my opinion. Especially when the workers that are in charge of deciding the fate of families does stuff like this. And faces nothing.... Not be held accountable for her actions because of the position she holds and the people she knows only shows how corrupt this agency really is.

I don't care how stressful her job was, there is no excuse in this world for scratching and trying to stab your son with a fork. I bet he hid her wine bc she'd get drunk and abusive. I doubt she helped anyone, I'm sure she stole plenty of kids from loving families, got them adopted then got her adoption incentive which starts out at$5,000 per child and can be much much more!!!! Do some research on how corrupt cps /dhs is! Listen to peoples stories!

Wow crazy shit, but doesn't surprise me at all, and for dhs sounds about right they want to take people's kids that are actually trying to raise them , but just look who they hire at dhs hell most of them working there can't take care of there own. Most of the women there been married and divorced several times and raise more hell than anyone but still have the right to judge someone and take there kids damn what a shame. Jackson county dhs needs to clean house and get some real workers

In fact no DHS employees don't have any kind of training or any license to get their job all they have to have to work there is a degree of any kind
