Protect your grandchild's future and wellbeing


Last updated 9/2/2016 at Noon

My 8-year-old grandson has been in seven foster homes within one year. Both parents are unable to care for him.

In one foster home, he was assaulted, leaving his body badly bruised. He feared future assaults. His mother saw the bruises during a supervised visit. The bruises and assault were confirmed and dealt with by the Pasco PD.

My grandson was also molested in another foster home. Soon after, he threatened to kill himself.

In the first part of this year he was allowed to call me weekly for 15 minutes per call. He was not allowed to speak of his problems or the call would be abruptly terminated. If he "misbehaved" the punishment was to lose his call to me.

Sign to support Legislative Initiative 877, Children Need Grandparents. Loving grandparents should be allowed to petition Washington state’s courts for visitation with their grandchildren in situations like this, and so many others.

Washington state is the only state in the union that is neglecting to protect the important relationship between children and the grandparents that love them.

Call 509-378-0027 for information on signing LI-877 TODAY.
