When I collected my daughter yesterday afternoon from.... I can't honestly remember what number placement this is... She disclosed details of her attempted suicide...
She has endured 2 year's sexual abuse by a foster carer's son-in-law from 2011 - 2013 she aged 11 to 14....then a group home where the house not only backed onto her old foster carer's back year but her perpetrator could see through her bedroom windows. She was further psychologically tortured by the staff at this group home....
My daughter is still with me today luckily, however I had not been told by DCP Bunbury Western Australia about her hospitalization for attempting suicide...
My little girl, only 14-15 at the time, attempted to use a knife to slash her wrists, "but I found it too blunt and tried scissors instead".
She failed to cut deep enough into her wrists so instead "I broke the scissors and just started cutting.. I couldn't stop... My arms, my legs, my stomach." she told me how she was bloodied and and no one noticed. She then told me "all poisons were loved away, so I went to the boys toilet, where I knew they kept a bottle of Bleach for when the boys do a number 2....i drank the entire bottle before someone noticed that there was blood and I had locked myself in."
She goes on to tell me, "*** the carer, took me to hospital, she was the reason I was there mum. She was so cruel telling me no one wanted me, I was a f"**k up... That no one loved me and she was my only hope" my daughter spent 2 days in hospital while a psychiatric team assessed if she should be moved to a specialist hospital in Perth.... Not once was I informed of this. I had been begging for my baby to come home, along with her siblings.. And now they can contact me, all sorts of nightmare stories are emerging.....
Children are dying in foster care. The system is inhumane and beyond cruel!! I would never have know about my babies suicide attempt unless she had been successful. I have warned dcp that if things did not change, I would be greeting body bags.... I never expected I was that close to it being the truth!

My first post, I too have had a bad experience with what you call DOCS, here in Western Australia they are called Department of Child Protection (D.C.P), it has been 7 months since they decided to start on me and the misery and stress is still going on today, I have had 3 of these harpies after me so here is my story.
Please take note that I have carefully edited out the children’s names for their own protection, I have 3 children but they do not live with me now.
To begin with I am or was a single parent, in mid May of 2009 my daughter decided to come and live with me, my daughter also asked if a friend could also come and live with us as the friend was having issues at home, I said it would be ok providing it was ok with the friends mother, to which it was, at this point I was made aware that the friend was a DCP client, so I went to the local DCP office to have a discussion with Lisa Devine about my options by way of seeking help for the friend, to which I was told that they cant give out details, however, I never asked for details of the friend, then this harpy said to me, that this is a big ask of you to take on a child you do not know as well as your own biological child, are you sure you can handle 2 14yo, I said that I will try, by treating them the same without any favouritism, the conversation ended ok enough and I left their cave.
In early June 2009, I picked up both my daughter and her friend from the local bus terminal, got them settled in and enrolled at the local high school, all was going well, no issues nor problems at all, just like a normal family, both girls made friends and were quite happy.
In early August 2009, this is where my nightmare began, my daughter decided on having a 15th birthday party and wanted to have friends attend, which I said ok; the party went well, no fights or screaming, quite a sedate party, then 2 days later, the misery began, I took them 2 to school as I did since they arrived all ok, about lunchtime, I got a SMS from my daughter asking if her friend came home as my daughter couldn’t find her friend, I replied that her friend did not come home, I went to pick up the 2 from school at 3pm, and was then accosted by a male (Brent Montgomery) who was asking me about the party.
I said the party was ok why? He then said well we want to come and collect friends belongings from you, again, I asked why and what was going on, the male just turned and walked away, my daughter then appeared and was visibly upset when, my daughter got into the car, I asked her what was wrong, my daughter replied that the friend was taken out of school earlier, by two adults a male and a fat female, we went home, about 45 minutes later a govt plated car appeared, and both the male I spoke to plus the fat female came out, the friend was in the back seat and also came out, visibly upset, I let the friend inside to get the belongings, the fat female demanded to go inside, I asked what the problem was, she refused to tell me, with that I refused her entry to my home, she then became aggressive, to which I just laughed at her, calling her an idiot, the male never made a move on me as I was considerably bigger than him, 20 minutes later they left with the friend, leaving me with a very upset child to comfort.
