When Children in Foster Care Want to Come Home

Note: This file will be updated as more information comes to light.

You can put in for a dismissal of the current orders. You need to go to the department and talk to them about it and then file against the current order. You need to prove the child does not want to be in care and that your circumstances have changed and how and why their better off at home. There is a word for the dismissal but i can't think of it right now. Will get back to you on that. He said the courts tend to listen more when the kids are 13/14 and up.

From the perspective of former foster kids

I'm a former foster child. I had suffered abuse at home with my step dad. I stood up to my abuser and asked for the help of child protective services. He confessed and was convicted for his crime and I was placed in foster care. Even though my step dad was the criminal he was released years before I was. Foster care had become such an abusive prison for me I finally ran away, homeless out on the streets, to young to work and no where to go.

Not only do I have physical scars from the abuse I received in foster care but some days I still cry from the type of mental maltreatment I received at

Babies account for one-third of all deaths of Alberta foster children

Babies account for one-third of all deaths of Alberta foster children

More than half of infants died in their sleep or due to prematurity, yet government has few policies to address these issues

Between January 1999 and June 2013, 18 babies in foster care died in their sleep. In at least six cases, records show the child’s foster parents employed “unsafe sleeping practices” such as co-sleeping, sleeping on unsafe surfaces, and having toys and blankets in a crib. These can increase the likelihood of sudden, unexpected infant deaths.

The names of the mother and child in this story have been changed to comply with an Alberta law that prohibits identifying children

Man with juvenile sex crime history was licensed as foster parent, abused more kids

SEATTLE — Richard Jason Boothby is now spending 18 years behind bars for child rape and molestation after sexually abusing at least three foster children in his care.

The abuse happened over the course of a year, starting in May 2009, when the state Department of Social and Health Services placed a 4-year-old boy in Boothby’s Shoreline home, despite Boothby’s juvenile criminal record for molesting young children.

In 1988, when he was 15, Boothby had pleaded guilty to indecent liberties and was sent to Echo Glen, a state-run children’s detention center.

Protect foster children from sex trafficking

Protect foster children from sex trafficking

These girls and boys must be better cared for and watched over.

Recent sting operations revealed that more than half of the children being traded for sex come from foster care. The same children identified by our courts as most in need of protection from abuse and neglect are being bought and sold everywhere from truck stops and cheap motels to wealthy suburbs. They are being used, reused, and then discarded like trash.

Former Tulsa Foster Parents Arrested After Kids Found In Filthy Home

Tulsa Police arrested two former foster parents Monday for child neglect, after finding their house infested with roaches, bed bugs and lice, for the second time.

They took their four foster children away in July and took three other children away Monday.

Tulsa Police said it's not the first time Robert McElvain, 35, and Felecia Polk, 25, had children living in filth.

TPD's Child Crisis Unit searched the house in the 6200 block of North Main Street Monday and found it was infested with bugs.

With the couple in handcuffs, police took pictures of the trashed out house, with roaches climbing the

  • Susan Johnson became a foster mother after her daughter left home
  • But she has faced 'a cavalier attitude to her safety' from the care system
  • Twice she has had foster 'children' she was incapable of caring for
  • One Afghan 'boy' turned out to be chain-smoking man of 26
  • Another British 15-year-old emptied her bank account of £1,000
  • But she continues to foster, despite her family's objections

The aggression in the voice on the other side of my spare bedroom door was both startling and frightening — not least because it was supposed to be coming from a young boy.

Foster care system is at breaking point - Overloaded by Child Stealers Like Jeremy Sammut

Foster care system is at breaking point - Overloaded by Child Stealers Like Jeremy Sammut

Jeremy Sammut (Centre for Independant Studies) Children should be removed from parents and adopted at the earliest opportunity.

Note: Another news report which simply ignores the position of the parents involved who have had their children legally kidnapped. Stealing a child from a loving family under anything but the worst conditions is equivalent to issuing a death penalty for that whole family, not just the children.

Foster parent who abused babies sparks $23 million in lawsuits against state

The lawsuits represent one of the most sweeping cases against the state child-welfare agency for abuse by a single foster parent. Some of the children were as young as days or weeks old.

James Earl Mooney told police he couldn't remember how many of the 50 babies and toddlers who lived in his Salem foster home fell victim to his sexual abuse from 2007 to 2011.

But attorneys for 11 of those children have filed nearly $23 million in lawsuits against the Oregon Department of Human Services. Investigators may identify more children who were victims and their names could be added to the suits.

Victim's tears as foster mum freed

A "DICKENSIAN" foster mother who carried out a decade-long catalogue of abuse against children in her care has escaped a jail sentence.

Any closure these victims had from winning their case has now dissipated with the absurd,disgusting sentencing.I don't believe for one minute her husband was unaware of the abuse,only so much can be hidden and to say the case was historic from only 20 years ago is ridiculous.The legal system is a disgrace.Plenty of people cope with diabetes,how idiotic this decision is!!!
