Realities of Child Protective Services

Realities of Child Protective Services

We enter the new millennium with well over 500,000 of our children in one or another form of state-provided alternative care. An estimated 365,000 of our children are removed from their homes for their "protection" each year in these United States. They find themselves warehoused in foster homes, group homes, and institutions. When there is no room for them at the proverbial inn, they find themselves warehoused in prisons.

  1. There is an article in the "New York Times" this morning about children of illegal immigrants.
    The mother named, was in jail for false id, her son was adopted out with out her permission simp;y because the adopting couple had a large home and were stable.
    As she said, her parents were poor, but the children were not taken away. Well worth a read, though I am against illegal immigration, this is a sad story and one that appears to be effecting more then we are hearing about.
