Children are being taken by the ministry and put in to foster homes in the Northwest an kept there.
It took me 6 months to fight to get my grandchildren outta the system, The 1st home they were put in was with a 70 yr old sungle female where my youngest grandson got bite from her dog, The 2nd home they were put in was with people I knew who partied all the time, But try telling the ministry that when the workers put it all over their facebook accounts how much they party n post photo's....

Plus the one worker use to go out the the foster parenst home to party n crack out with the people who were responsile for my grandchildren.
My youngest brother lost his son in the system, He was fighting them for awhile n then the foster parent now is going for custody.. Who are they to take our children away when they put them right into dangerous places.I have no respect at all for the system at all.

it is terrible when they say the kids are at there best interest yet they do not work at the kids best interest by getting them back home with the parents or parent .

I'm not tryna start an arguement here, But in one post you are admitting to the drinkin yet in the other you are all for the system. You yourself told me you have saved a lot of money since seperating. I did a lot of foot work while fighting for my grandchildren an i know for a fact that the ministry does not do a proper home check on the foster parents. I was also helping other parents get their children out as we the public have noone to help us. I know cuz i fought the fight an i won. All...

The ministry did they help you out other n with money? No they did not because i know the boyz didnt have the proper beds as i was tryna help you guys get that as thats what your spouse at the time said was needed, The only ones who helped was the NTC they helped get you guys the Car seat needed. I also talked to the people in Victoria about how things were handled. I was on the phone all day everyday tryna get all the info i needed. I did this all for my grandchildren. To this day i will stand by my own findings an say the Ministry does not do their job right at all..

I myself grew up in the system, taken away perminintley from 9 years old! seperated from my family, I've been through so many homes I stopped counting after 18 homes counted! Today, I hear sooo many horror stories about the system still running the same Bull**** after 21 years! So so sad & corrupt :(

I grew up in many foster homes throughout my childhood. Though I was eventually adopted, I suffered every form of abuse imaginable by our "wonderful foster families." Though a couple were good, most were awful. I found my birth mother when I was 18 and she is furious that I was subjected to so many horrible things. I was also denied my culture and was not taught anything about my Native American heritage. Though it is true my parents could not take care of me at the time, I was better off...

Though it is true my parents could not take care of me at the time, I was better off with my family than the hell that the state threw me into. I would never wish this on any child, regardless of race but unfortunately, this crap happens every day. These children have voices, but they are rarely ever heard. They have to trust the adults in their life that are supposed to take care of them and protect them. We need to do something to change this. They are the future of this world.

...Not to mention if foster homes were watched as much as native parents, maybe the foster care system would be better for children who REALLY need to be in foster care...There is more abuse going on in foster care (the system) than any native home.

Taking children from their parents is devistating for that child and it's not the answer. Children AND parents need guidence not separation.

They are still attacking our culture and our families...

as an adopted child, I know the emptiness of no connection, no ancestry. This is unnecessary pain for aboriginal people who have a rich and deep cultural heritage readily available.
