This child has been in foster care on and off since birth, 2 short years ago. The last year he has spent with Erin and David, a foster home. My office ruled out the bio parents very early on and told the foster family they could adopt the baby, even though blood relatives have come forward. We gave the relatives the run around and told them they were not allowed visits or information because we were still working on the family reunification portion of our plan.

Our real plan was to keep the family away from the baby until we could get before a judge to severe parental rights. The family forced their way into the court process. With the GAL's insistence the judge ordered a best interest exam (BIE). Two family members and the foster family went through the BIE. CPS and GAL believed best interest lied with the foster family whom has had the child for one year. the Psychologist not only ranked the persons 1 thru 3, 1 being the best choice for placement of the baby and 3 being the last option she also made recommendations.

In this case, not only was the foster parent picked last, it was stated that this family would be a good structured home for a child in crisis but not long term. The child in question has been with this family long term and still remains with this foster family. I do not believe the child is safe with this foster family. The psychologist's observations and discussion with the foster mom were disturbing. I do not understand why the child has not been removed form this home nor why this foster family with obvious problems and issues bordering on child abuse are allowed to continue to foster children. Certification should be revoked, no adoptions should be allowed.

Who will save this child? Who is monitoring these private companies who are approving unsafe families and unstable persons like Erin & David to care for foster children. We need greater checks and balances!

AUTHOR: Cat - (U.S.A.)

I am really confused by your post. You state your office knew from the beginning this was not a good home, that your office told this foster family that they could keep this child and adopt. They kept family members away from the child. So, what is your position in your office and why did you not do something because if you did, you did not mention it in your post. Why did you not go to your supervisor and stop this? If your boss would not help then you should have gone up the ladder? Why is there not a CASA worker assigned to this case ?

It sounds as if the judge picked the family last. So perhaps there is hope in that the judge will see that your office kept this child from the family.

What concerns me the most is that YOU have just broken the confidentiality of this case wide open all over the world wide web and that is a huge NO NO. Your office will see this at some point so I hope you will be prepared for the repercusions of your actions. There was no reason to give the first names of the foster family on this post where it can not be taken down. This should have been handled in your office from the very beginning. I do not understand why you had to come here and blow the confidentialty of this case. You know being a case worker how serious that is. While I believe that there are serious issues in this case I believe your office and you should have dealt with this from the very beginning. Your job is to protect children.
