Flora Sotomayor, assistant CPS director, said during that time caseworkers were paid overtime to oversee court-ordered parental visits, and no families missed any visits.

To Avoid Broken Adoptions, Avoid Breaking Families

Failed adoption is an unsettling reality that is too often hidden from the public eye. Adoption can be a wonderful thing for the right child at the right time. There are many adoptive parents who are heroic and inspiring. However, since the federal Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997, adoption has too often been as presented as—if not a panacea—then at least the preferred permanency option, by public child welfare authorities.

The term "permanency" is used inaccurately, sometimes almost cynically.

MARCH 10, 2003
While in the care of the Children's Aid Society (CAS) of Ottawa, Ontario, Wabi fell from the second floor of the foster home and landed on the main floor head first. He sustained a skull fracture and hematoma. My son had been in surgery for several hours before I was informed by CAS that I needed to come to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Upon arriving at CHEO I was informed by a doctor that my son was in the middle of having brain surgery and that the matter was a very serious one.
