I want to hear from anyone about issues related to Access with the CAS. For example. It seems to me that there is a common theme of the CAS always fighting to reduce slowly but surely parents access visit times from 8 down to 4 hours and similar reductions.
It seems that they slowly over time try to reduce the hours you spend with your child in order to try and "break the bond" then they fight for adoption and "Crown Ward with No Access for the purpose of adoption".
Then, the adoption takes place, and during the probation period of six months in that new adoption something "happens" causing an adoption breakdown and the child returns to foster care again.
This pattern has been showing up so we need to hear from more and more parents out there who can show a trend. The reason I believe for this is funding.
See, if a child gets adopted, the CAS loses in two ways. They lose a foster home, and they lose funding for the child. So there is nothing good for the CAS in actually allowing an adoption to take place. There is no benefit for the CAS in this at all. Only two negatives.
What are your opinions? Please respond by clicking on the title of this message.
