Struggle continues: DCF not improved since Jeremiah’s death, critics say

It has been more than a year since the state’s Department of Children and Families discovered 4-year-old Jeremiah Oliver was missing while under the agency’s care, though he was last seen by family members months before that.

Preventing Un-Adoption Tragedies

In September 2013 Reuters shocked the world by exposing the dangerous practice of re-homing adopted children. The five-part series called “The Child Exchange” described adoptive parents giving the adopted children that they were unable to handle to total strangers found online. Many of the children were from Russia and were described as presenting a danger to their adoptive families and, in some cases, were given to unsavory people and pedophiles.

Sinhue Johnson’s fight over his family shows child-protective system at work

Social worker shortage hampers CYFD

D’Val Westphal’s buoyant description of the efforts of the state Children, Youth and Families Department to address child abuse and neglect usefully lists steps that have been implemented such as better communications and consolidated services.

What the article does not mention is that the department is still woefully short of “boots on the ground” – the social workers desperately needed to quickly investigate allegations of abuse and neglect and then spend the time needed to monitor the well-being of the children and help their caretakers learn how to parent.

Note: The article also fails to mention the child welfare fraud that is constantly being overlooked.

18 deaths in Minnesota foster homes over past 5 years

Data provided by the Minnesota Department of Human Services shows 18 deaths have been reported in foster homes in the state over the past 5 years, with two of those deaths caused by abuse. The official cause of death in the Dec. 26 case of 6-year-old Kendrea Johnson at a Brooklyn Park, Minn. foster home remains under investigation.

U.S. foster care system offers hope for children at risk

There is apparently a push to recruit new foster care and adoptive parents this time of year, so they start pouring out the warm and fuzzy bullshit.

This time of year it is important for them to pour on the bullshit because of the November being “National Adoption Month” where they liquidate the assets. This causes some foster parents to get out of the business because they finally have your kid of their own and can live just as well off of the adoption subsidies.

Sadly, many stolen children never get adopted into these wonderful happily ever families. Some even… age out. When that happens, there isn’t as much hope.
– As many as 36 percent of those who age out of the system become homeless, while 56 percent become unemployed.
– Roughly 27 percent of male foster children will be jailed after aging out.
– Less than half of emancipated youth who age out graduate from high school and fewer than 12 percent graduate from college.
– About 40 percent of aged out foster children become parents as a result of unplanned pregnancy.
This info comes from another warm and fuzzy bullshit article where they show the perfect happily forever after family in an attempt to recruit more. In reality though, it’s a real struggle. They fuck these kids up before they find them the forever homes.
