CHANGES NEEDED WITHIN DCF

In 2015 my grandson Adrian, age 7 was abused, tortured and starved to death my his father Michael Jones and stepmother Heather Jones. Shortly after we learned of Adrian's death, records from DCF were sealed by the State of Missouri and Kansas. (DCF records were finally released in both Missouri/Kansas in 2017). Heather took a plea deal and was sentenced in December 2016, she will serve life in prison with a hard 29-1/2 years.  Michael was awaiting trial, which was to begin on April 17, 2017, but prior to that date he took a plea deal.  Michael was charged with 1st degree murder and will serve life in prison with a hard 25 years. With all the overwhelming evidence, we have a hard time coming to grips as to why Michael and Heather did not receive life in prison with no chance of parole.  We as a family have many questions. I would like to ask this question - How can we all stand united as one to make the necessary changes to the system to prevent another child from suffering abuse?  We use our VOICES! 

Since Adrian's death it has become very clear to me that the current system DCF(Department of Child & Families) in Kansas is failing miserably to protect children. We must get to the very core of the problem, which is DCF and their failure to remove children from abusive situations. It has been discovered that DCF in Kansas has a history of shredding records, which leaves me to believe they have things to hide. Since Adrian's death there has been a Child Welfare System Task Force set up, which is looking into DCF.  In the meantime, here are some things that can be done to help prevent child abuse. Ask your elected officials what legislation they are supporting to protect children. Demand that local government in your State put more money into efforts to fight and prevent child abuse. Contact legislatures, senators, and the governor in your State. Write letters to local newspapers in your area. I hope that we as ONE can help prevent further child abuse, and let the process of healing begin. We together can make a difference. #justice4Adrian
