One year ago, DCF first came and took the kids because of an anonymous 51-A filed. There was no warning, and they had the children for a whole month. Recently they came and said everything looked great and that my brother was doing well working a full time job and that the kids looked happy. Then recently my 16 year old sister wanted to see a therapist, so my parents set up an appointment. She told the therapist that she was cutting, and wanted to die. She said part of it is that when my brother was 10 and she was 4, he made her do some questionable things. She filed a 51-A, and now there are 2 cases open and they took the children again and said it will be for 6 months. How can we combat this? The caseworker only shows contempt for our whole family but has never even met us.
