Woman Allowed to Resume Visits With Granddaughter

May 20, 2000

LOS ANGELES — A grandmother who said that the Department of Children and Family Services had prevented her from seeing her grandchild after she complained about the agency on television has been reunited with the 5-year-old girl.

Florence Wallace said that one day after The Times reported that she had been barred from seeing her granddaughter Cashey, a social worker contacted her and said her weekly visits could resume.

Wallace said her visits were interrupted after she spoke to a television reporter about the death of another granddaughter in the agency's foster care system last year.

County officials said that there was no retaliation and that they merely modified the conditions under which Wallace could see her granddaughter. Wallace now can see her weekly at an agency office.
