This is one individual...how he didn't get fingerprinted, I couldn't tell you, but you can't blame the actions of one person on a whole angency. You can't always predict people. But...being fingerprinted and drug screened is a requirement for DCF employees who have direct contact with children...and yes, employees can be drug tested at anytime and background screens are cunducted evey five years. Children do not get snatched from homes randomly. Anywho who says any different probably had their children removed at some point in their lives and they are in denial about whatever it is they did to have that happen.
REALLY. AND YOU KNOW THIS HOW. KIDS ARE TAKEN FROM GOOD HOMES EVERYDAY IN FLORIDA. HOW DARE U SAY PPL COMMENTING ARE JUST MAD OR ARE GUILTY. SCREW YOU AND DCF. LIAR!! U have no idea how it feels to be in the situation so do us all a favor and get off this blog..

DCF in Lake County gave my grandchildren to my daughters Mother and her husband, she didn't even raise her own son, he lived with his grandparents. When I explained to DCF that I had made complaints of drug use previously to them, probation, and an anonymous call was also made by another family member to DCF I also talked to the other grandmother who lived minutes from my Grandchildren and not one of these complaints were followed up period. When I explain to DCF that the children are now in an enablers house who also uses drugs and has the same circle of friends my daughter and her boyfriend had they do not even give me the time of day. They think this is a joke. Sadly, I am telling the truth. I've written numerous letters outlining timelines of my daughter and her boyfriends drug use throughout the years only to have my letters go ignored by the Judges in the case. I admit the problem, other grandmother, well she turns a blind eye to her son as he can do no wrong...after all she was not there for him as a child and feels the guilt. Now she is rewarded by Lake County Florida DCF and has her second chance messing up another generation. I have the childrens sibling for 7 years and DCF seems to enjoy splitting the family up and allowing contact between two prisoners through the other grandmother......DCF is Concerned? HA Concerned about keeping their jobs, not about the welfare of children. Good choice Lake County DCF!
