Foster care child misplacement cases growing rapidly
It is a sad reality that despite the dozens of laws that exist to protect children in the U.S., thousands of children are subject to horrid abuse and acts of violence. Even more alarming is the fact that many of these children experience abuse by guardians and parents who are meant to protect them. When a child’s home is no longer safe, the child may be removed and placed into a foster home. Although a foster home is required to conduct thorough background investigations on all prospective adoptive parents, the reality is that many foster parents’ homes end up being far more dangerous. The number of children being abused and murdered as a result of foster care child misplacement is growing at an alarming rate.
