Erie County Children & Youth Reviews
OCY trying to terminate my rights and adopt my children out to foster family, even after I completed all that was asked of me. I completed service plan and was told children would come home soon. 9 days before hearing I get paper saying OCY wants to put kids up for adoption! Gail Dyslewski never sent out kinship letters to families, required by law. The agency denied this, and even after an internal inquiry proved she did not fulfill her duties, continued to present to the courts they had contacted family. Megan Watt canceled son's evaluation for his special needs, saying" I don't think he has autism and I don't want to waste my time for nothing on a long assesment". Daughter fell from bunkbed and broke arm in foster home. When I asked Megan Watt if she investigated, she said that was a "supervion issue", but she had adressed it. Children remaimed in foster home until 2 weeks later, when foster family asked for removal because they couldn't handle them. Carrie Luther fabricated a story about my wife's rights to another daughter being terminated to stop our overnight visits and essentially remove my wife from the picture. Megan Watt was aware of this and did nothing to stop it. Kim Cavotto and Tiffany Niedelski both knew of all the violations and did nothing, denying it all. These people submitted false information to the courts, commited perjury, and have been the entire time. This agency's reputation for this is very well known, yet the city, county, and elected officials have all ignored the issue. These people are destroying families and ruining lives, all for money and friends.
OCY is trying to terminate my rights and adopt my kids out. I did everything I was asked to do by them and the courts. The caseworker told me they would be coming home and then about 10 days before Court, I get the report they are asking for a change for adoption. No reason or explanation, no warning. They lied and put false statements on report. They never sent out letters to our family either, which is a requirement for them.
