Few children in foster care ever return home

Very few children who are taken into foster care by child welfare services ever return to their own homes. A new study by the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) found that just over 10% are returned to live with their parents, and of those almost a third end up in foster care again.

The study indicates that rescuing a child from a home where his or her welfare is in jeopardy is rarely a temporary measure. In most cases, foster care ends only when the child comes of age.

Even so, social workers estimate that in almost 90% of cases, intervening by taking a child out of the home

LEORA Miller had been living in Australia for 10 months when she received a knock at the door from two Interpol representatives. She was told she had 14 days to return her four boys to Israel.

Adoptive Parents try to return kids like defective TV sets

Adoptive parents are returning their children to the adoption agencies. These parents have decided that they don't want their kids anymore. My child didn't come from an agency, so where should I return my child if I decide that I don't want her anymore? Three adoptive families returned or attempted to return their children when they decided that they couldn't or didn't want to care for them anymore.

An Oklahoma couple tried to have a law changed so that they could return their son to the state because they say that they are afraid of him.
