I am so frustrated tonight. I should say actually that I am really disapointed at our justice system. If anyone knows about the Adam and media issue, this is what it's all about again. I called Social Services today and told them I wanted an investigation done on the 2 EA's that abused Adam. They had all these wonderful things to say like, you are such a strong person, it's so sad, blah blah!!! Turns out they can't go in an investigation because Adam is no longer at that school and no longer in danger. Even after I explained to them that they had done the same to an Autisitc little boy 3 years ago and that the mother had reported it to the Social Services and an investigation was done then. I told them that they had to investigate every person that calls with an abuse case, I know that for a fact as my cousin used to work for Social Services. These 2 EA's are now working with a child who has Asberger. He needs to be protected, so I got a hold of the mother and explained to her in not all the details but to watch fro signs. I think that all these wonderful Associations that are there to help our children and I won't name them all as I have contacted so many over the last 3 months, are just there to pass the buck. They send you from one agency to another. I think they are scared off by the fact that we are intending on going media with this. I told them today that they better be worried if I go media, cause I'l make sure people know that they sure are not doing their jobs when it comes to protecting children. They will investigate silly complaints, but of course not something that may affect their precious budget if they offend the Ministry. It is all about politics and I am soooooo sick of it, it has been 3 months of hell, to try to do the right thing. . We meet will our local MPP tomorrow,which seem like the only ones that have been sending us in the right direction. So if there was ever any dought about me going media, they have fired me up now. The only last thing needing to be done now is for us to find a lawyer who will take our case po-bono and protect us while going media. We don't have $450.00 an hour to spend on a lawyer to protect us for something that is the right thing to do.I'm hoping the MPP will do that, they have their own contacts. (Again politics right) Well may as well play the game as we have gotten nowhere with going to the people that our suppose to protect our children. It's not as easy as people think to go media, it can really backfire, especially when you go against the Ministry of Education. We are from a small town and this issue will go National. I am not going to risk it all by putting a small ad in our local paper. If we do this we do it all the way, not just for Adam but for every child out there. I am embarrassed by such a government that does not stand up for what they preach. Thanks for letting me vent, I really needed it tonight.
