RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I have reported two cases to DHS CPS in Oregon. The first was after two days of listening to a grandmother taking care of her grandson by screaming obscenities at him non-stop from the moment he got home from school, even through the arrival of his mother. The second was after a young boy arrived on my doorstep scared and lone, lost in the big city. I took him home and he was afraid to go in because of his older brother's threatening attitude. I don't know what transpired after I made the calls, and I don't know if DHS considers verbal abuse to be excessive enough to respond, but my heart and conscience required I make the calls. Someone needs to watch over these little ones.
