Abusing the abused

Abusing the abused: Children should be placed with loving relatives

The trauma for children being removed from their homes because they've been abused at the hands of caregivers whom they should have been able to trust is almost unimaginable.

A Utah Division of Children and Family Services policy of putting these children in shelters instead of in the homes of grandparents or other family members or friends who are familiar to them is deplorable. The practice is especially onerous since it grew out of a misunderstanding of federal law, a grievous error that apparently was made by no other state agency in the country.
