Abuse of Screaming baby turns into a life of abuse in foster care for children

It was about five years ago now, and it happened in the roughest part of Cairns where I was living, Murray St. flats in Mooroobool.

I heard a baby screaming, what I thought to be a blood curdling scream, and crying, on and on and on. I said to the girl I was staying with that I was going to jump the fence and check on that baby, but she dissuaded me with her comment about how it was Murray Street, there were kids everywhere and there were always babies crying.

The next night it was the same, and once again I insisted that it was only right that I should jump the fence and check on that baby.

17 years of hell at the hands of social services Part 1

17 years of hell at the hands of social services Part 1

My story is in three parts, two of my daughter and one part of my grandson and is a continual catalogue of failing after failing by social workers from Greenwich Hospital, Kent County Council, Cornwall Social Services, Bournemouth Social Services and Dorset County Council.

It all began in 1994 when my now ex wife decided to stab me in the wrist with a pair of hairdressing scissors, I went into hiding in South London as I was in shock for some considerable time when my ex turned up waving a pregnancy certificate some months later having

Foster children have grim prospects

on Mon, 08/13/2012 - 18:38
Fight Child Protection Department Corruption: 

The prospects for kids who age out of foster care are grim.

Studies show that half won't graduate from high school, one-quarter will be homeless for a while, and more than half will be unemployed within a year or two of leaving the child-welfare system.

More than 600 Arizona teens turned 18 and left foster care completely in the past year.

State policy requires teens who are 16 and likely to remain in foster care until they become adults to participate in a program to help them live on their own.

Services include counseling, training in life skills such as budgeting and grocery shopping,

The federal government will issue a formal apology to those affected by forced adoption practices in the 1950s to 1970s, thanks largely to the efforts of a Woy Woy woman.

For almost 45 years, Robin Turner has been living with the grief of having her baby son stolen from her hours after his birth and her work helped spark a recently completed Senate inquiry into the children removed from their mothers.

Thousands of young single mothers were forced to hand over their babies for adoption from the '50s to

New child welfare audit says Oregon can do more to reunite parents and kids in foster care

on Thu, 04/26/2012 - 19:25

SALEM --While Oregon child welfare caseworkers do better than the national average in seeing that children taken into state foster care are returned to their parents, a new audit also finds caseworkers often do not include parents in critical discussions concerning their families and have little time to ensure meaningful visits between parents and kids.

Overall, the 28-page report portrays a system under stress.

Overworked child welfare staff do not get much help from the central office in prioritizing their work.

High Workloads and Limited Resources May Prevent Children in Foster Care from Returning Home

Salem – A state audit released today found that while the Department of Human Services’ Child Welfare Program returned children home at a higher rate than the national average, high caseloads and limited services to parents may prevent children in foster care from returning home. Auditors suggested the agency consider some strategies to help case workers with the challenges they face.

“In this resource limited environment, frontline workers are expected to do more with less,”

their a law within themselves

After stumbling across your page on facebook, it showed me that i'm not alone in fighting this horrific battle against DoCS. I had the horrible knock on my door back in 2008 just months after my 5th child was born. The case worker stated they were just following up on a report that was made when I was pregnant due to my stress levels. After telling them I was concerned as my daughter was born 8-weeks premature and had breathing difficulties they said they would get me linked with the right services.
