Seems someone is getting a demotion at DSS per the closed session meeting tonight..rumor is it is Bobby C, since they got new computers he may not be needed any longer?? Then too it could be -- for not doing their job.

We shall see!!

Thank You I feel the same way about saving a child at first I was scared of haveing to give one up after getting attached to it then after thinking about it I relized that at least while that child was with us it got so much love that maybe it could carry it with is the rest of its life and get something from that

Fostering could be a great reward. I heard that after Rebecca was fired at DSS she went on to foster children in Kentucky!!

Contact the foster care unit and get that paperwork started, you could make a BIG impact on someone's life!! There is no guarantee that you could adopt but it is a start. Good luck and God Bless.

Please,that place couldn't make it without Bob....

Instead of demotions; the board needs to be informed about how busy things are and consider filling a few more of those empty positions that are still vacant. They need to be reminded how many have left & the positions have never been filled.

"FOWL PLAY" puts me in a foul mood. Bob Coleman is the best. He is the one DSS employee, past,present,or future, who could never be replaced. As for computers, Boc does a great deal more than helping people with their computers,even though some need help turning them on and off.

I don't think fowl play was saying Bob is not a hard worker or a good guy, I think they were indicating that perhaps JH would try to make it look like he is not needed and try to get rid of him to save money and make herself look good or something..afterall she needs money to buy those camera's to spy on everyone..and for HER safety since she has pissed so many people off!!LOL

JH is a joke and needs to walk away from DSS while she can with dignity as it appears she may be going down soon as I hear some legal matters are forthcoming.

If they are afraid of violent customers why not hire a security guard like some other agency did...perhaps JH is afraid of failing a field sobriety test! LOL

Well, I wouldn't trust anyone that works at Buchanan County DSS. I know first hand how they are and how the "try" to help you adopt and "help" the kids.

My husband and live live in SC 6 hours from Grundy. We thought we had a good chance to adopt 3 kids in their care. So we agreed to bring them down here to live with us. Their mother was killed and their father was facing jail time but still had supervised visits 3 Saturdays a month.

We drive up there 3 weekends a month so he could have his visitation. That was back when gas was $4 a gallon. We paid for all travel expense for the whole year.

I tried several times to get DSS to ask the juge if he'd consider making the visits 2 Saturdays a month along with half a day on Sunday that way we could make 2 tips a month to VA and the kids would have a chance to join sports or something. NEVER WOULD ASK FOR US.

You have to be careful because kids will be influenced to say anything and trust me they will play both sides to get what they want. Young but very smart.

The last straw for me was when the kids stepmother threatened to run over me "IN FRONT OF THE KIDS" and that's how their mother was killed. DSS said I had to get along with the stepmother because I was on the foster mom.

After a year of crap like that we knew they had no plans on helping us adopt these 3 kids.

If they take the kids out of the system look at all the jobs no longer needed...judge time, lawyers time, doctors time, psychologist time...it's all about keeping them in the system so they have jobs.

I woudn't psss on anyone of them there if the were on fire.

If you decide to, good luck and may GOD please bless you for trying.

NEVER AGAIN FOR US....

BUC. CO. DSS-- touchy subject..

id like to know how it is that that POS place can sit there and allow a woman that has no electricy for 3 months keep her two kids, and how this same woman collects 2 food stamp cards in her name and her kids fathers name and turns around and sell them for pills and what not, pays 750.00 dollars on her electric and sees nothing wrong with it .. but me a mother of one that works and provides everything i possible can for my child gets harassed... umm goo figure because the father of my son feels like bein a prick ... a worker wich will be nameless that works for DSS is so old she is to seenile to see what is going on should retire .. if you aint a rich bitch then you aint got a snow ball chance in hell with that place...
