Have you seen Me?

Have you seen Me?


This is my Grandson Austin, stolen by Nashua, NH DCYF on 2/3/2006. Date of Birth 1/25/2000.
I am 99.9% sure he was adopted by an older Foster couple in Merrimack, NH, who still deny the adoption.
His best buddy in the whole world, his Grampie, is in grave condition battling cancer. The people who I believe adopted him are well aware of this fact, but still deny he is with them.
I believe seeing Austin again could make a huge impact on my husband's will to live.
If anyone has seen Austin, whose name may have been changed, please let him know his Grampie is terminally ill and he may never get to see him again. Also, please contact me if you see him.
Thank you, Dot

Stay Clear of Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialists

If you don't want your loved ones drugged to oblivion, stay clear of Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialists.
My husband was sitting in a chair, walking and eating until the Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialist took over his medication. He was so over medicated on Morphine, all he did was sleep. No food, no walking, NOTHING!!!! He walked into the Hospital and three weeks later he was brought home by ambulance on a stretcher. Because of being over drugged, the love of my life is now dying!

N.H. DCYF’S accountability sorely lacking

N.H. DCYF’S accountability sorely lacking

Every day most of us try to hold ourselves or our direct wards whether they be family or peers accountable for our actions. We are told "To err is human, to forgive is divine," but we also know the extension of any pardon must follow the admission of one's mistake. Above all other institutions that function in our society, entities that make up our government at every level, should hold themselves to the highest standards of accountability.

In the case of the N.H. Division of Children, Youth and Families, recent events have made it clear accountability is a foreign concept.

My Father was diagnosed with Cancer by Holly R. Albino - GoFundMe:





My Father, Bill Knightly was recently diagnosed with Kidney Cancer, Bone Cancer, what they believe to be Lung Cancer, Cancer of the Spine and an Abdominal Aortic Aneurism.

The Medical Bill's are starting to pile up and my Mother, Dorothy Knightly and my Father only have Medicare.  Medicare pays 80% and my parents are still responsible for the rest. They've never asked anyone for anything . They've alway's paid their own bills with what little money they had. With surgeries in the near future and with the Medical Bill's already accumalating, my parents are getting overwhemed. 
Anything donated would be greatly appreciated by my 4 siblings, Bill Knightly, Rob Knightly, Mike Knightly, Candy Knightly, myself Holly Knightly Albino and our husbands, wives, grandchildren and of course my parents and will help in the care of my Dad. Hopefully he can pull through this and not have to worry about the medical Bill's being paid.

DCYF needs new leadership now

DCYF needs new leadership now:
Every year, various studies, audits and reports on State services are released in New Hampshire, and most see a day or two of press coverage before they are filed on a shelf in the State Library. But the Center for the Support of Families report on DCYF — the Division of Children, Youth and Families — released in December, is one that cannot be so easily dismissed. Its recommendations need to be the basis for systemic changes to an agency that has failed our most vulnerable citizens.

My Comment: Just a decade ago, under Maggie Bishop's direction, any and all report's of child abuse and neglect, no matter how frivolous, wound up tearing apart many families needlessly. Children were removed from not only their parent's but their entire family as well. Relative placement of these children was never even considered, but the Federal incentive money kept rolling in even though Federal mandates weren't being followed. Once a child was removed, they were never returned, even when innocence was proven. Why should ALL families again suffer because DCYF and the Judge messed up on these two cases?

Former Foster Parent Exposes How CPS Kidnaps Kids Away from Good Homes – Puts them on Drugs:

I became a foster parent with the intentions of putting a roof over the heads of orphaned children. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. By the time I completed the training process, I understood that the majority of the children that would be entering my home were not orphans. I was brainwashed into believing the children had come from abusive and neglectful homes. I was told the state had rescued them from horrible living environments and that I was somewhat of a hero for taking them in.They were all lies. It took several years for me to truly see what I had become a part of.
Child Protective Services was stealing children from loving biological families.
