The following statement was sent to us by email with the request for publication.

On May 27, 2008 my children were taken by DFACS. I am fighting for justice and to bring my children home!

On May 27, 2008, I, Kristi Strickler was in my bedroom getting ready for work. I have four children. My husband was outside with all of our children. My two year old, Jakk, was playing outside in the front yard and he tripped over a rock and fell on a radio. The antenna on the radio was broken and when he fell he hit the sharp edge of the antenna. We immediately took him to the hospital. Upon taking him to the hospital the police were notified as well as DFACS. They took our oldest son, Jess into an interrogation room at the hospital. By law you cannot take a child into custody without the parent(s) being there. I had two police guards standing at my hospital door. When they questioned Jess, he said the exact same thing that Kyle, my husband, and I stated. Then they told Kyle, my husband, that he needed to go home and get the rest of our children who were staying with a babysitter at the time. Then they took all the children at the time.

A couple of weeks prior, according to a DFACS worker at the hospital, there was an incident where a young child was taken to the hospital for a fractured arm. DFACS was called in and they decided to not take the child. A few days later the mother of the child’s boyfriend murdered the child. The DFACS worker said on that day, May 27, 2008 that my children would be taken on this day, because there was a lot of heat on DFACS; and they had to take them in order to rectify their wrongdoing.

    Hey , just had two cents thought id share.
    I am ,was, dealing with my children being abused while in dhs/ cps care. No matter how hard I tried the caseworker would do nothing. Then one day I had enough. So I wrote the caseworker an email expressing all of my concerns (not emotions ) I included pictures / evidence. (I done this before) but this time I cc that email to my lawyer, the kids lawyer, the ombudsman, the US house represntative, and anyone else I felt needed to see and hear it.
    I also requested that the caseworker respond within a reasonable amount of time , and enlighten me as to the safety precautions she would be implementing to insure my children’s safety ( as her current course lack reasonable precaution to insure this) and I also stated that my children’s safety was very much state responsibility now and if anything goes wrong the burden of guilt would rest on her (I turned their blah back in her face)
    And guess what , wonderful things started happening, my children are happyier and I am forcing accountability on the social worker ( this is an unknow territoryfor them
