Let’s Talk About The Foster Care System and Abuse

You may have read that I was once a foster mom, I thought since I couldn’t have children of my own that God was trying to tell me that I have so much love to give to a child, why not try to help the unwanted or abused an older child.

 

Everybody wants babies, but there are so many that are neglected by abuse. Maybe they come from a young, uneducated person or persons, drugs, economic situations, sickness, or the worst sexually abused by a relative or sibling.  The absolute worse is RAD, Reactive attachment disorder, these are children that were never natured as a baby and become almost like a living terminator.  If you want to know more about that one, just ask.

 

We first went through background checks, psychological checks, and were counseled on what we should be looking for on the national website.  President Clinton had passed a new deal that if the bio parents didn’t get it together, their rights were terminated, and their children were put up for adoption. If you adopted a special needs child, that child would continue to receive benefits through the government, and they were eligible for free county college.  Sounds great, right?

ASFA was enacted in an attempt to correct problems inherent within the foster care system that deterred the adoption of children with special needs. Many of these problems had stemmed from an earlier bill, the Adoption Assistance, and Child Welfare Act of 1980,[1] although they had not been anticipated when that law was passed, as states decided to interpret that law as requiring biological families be kept together no matter what.[1] The biggest change to the law was how ASFA amended Title IV-E of the Social Security Act regarding funding.

Moreover, ASFA marked a fundamental change to child welfare thinking, shifting the emphasis towards children’s health and safety concerns and away from a policy of reuniting children with their birth parents without regard to prior abusiveness.[1] As such, ASFA was considered the most sweeping change to the U.S. adoption and foster care system in some two decades.[1] One of ASFA’s lead sponsors, Republican Senator John H. Chafee of Rhode Island, said, “We will not continue the current system of always putting the needs and rights of the biological parents first. … It’s time we recognize that some families simply cannot and should not be kept together.”[1]

Ideas for the bill originated with both Democrats and Republicans.[2] First Lady of the United States Hillary Clinton originally voiced interest in the issue of orphaned children in an article she wrote in 1995.[3] She then held public events to bring the issue exposure,[2][3], and met with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services officials and private foundation executives over policy questions and recommendations. She cited the Act as the achievement which she initiated and shepherded that provided her with the greatest satisfaction.[3] The bill began in Congress with bipartisan support, then became contentious over issues of terminating birth parents’ rights to children and funding levels for programs to keep children out of foster care.[2] Hillary Clinton played a key role in finding a compromise between Republicans and Democrats on the latter issue after negotiations first broke down.[2]

In greeting the final measure, Bill Clinton stated that the bill “makes clear that children’s health and safety are the paramount concerns.”[1]

 

Well, we passed initially and accidentally became foster parents to our neighbor’s kids a few years later and had to go through the process all over again! We were told all these good things I mentioned above, and the recruiter wanted the rights of the parent terminated for previous offensives of neglect and now adding incest/rape to the abuse complaint.

James Fowler tweets: California CPS child molestation crisis shakes foundation of power

I will gladly take this case on, as a former foster mother to two sexual abused sisters, I can reveal that the more you advocate for your kids, the more resistance you get. The squeaky wheel doesn’t get the oil.

 

 

My caseworker went out of her way to shut a psychiatrist down with an Asperger’s diagnoses, or they would refuse to pay her and stop using their office.

 

I had the school test her, and I had to fight for that. The child in question had an IQ of  I believe it was 69. She dissociates, suffers from PTSD, Bi-polar, ADD after being raped by her father, and forced to carry a child to term when she was 14 years old. Her brother had raped her at age ten for a gang initiation. She was also molested by one of her mother’s friends when the mother was being investigated as people saw the kids eating out of garbage cans.

 

My caseworker was such a bitch to me, and she claimed she was coming to inspect and never showed up. She always wanted the bio mom to take the kids back even though she never showed up for visitations at my home and was standing by her man who molested the younger child.

 

These are the kids we will fight for, let’s make sure we search these vile acts out and make them known. I feel this is the only way to bring attention to these poor kids.  send in anons with article links.

 

We will be diving into why a person molests and why does it run in families?
