@bowlerdave I do know of many cases where DHS got it right and helped children! How many children have taken into your home because they were not in safe homes, were abused, neglected, and not treated well? http://caringforthekiddos.blogspot.com

As a foster parent I find it heartbreaking that children would die as a result of abuse and neglect in a foster home. It also gives those of us who take the job of being the caregiver of a child who needs someone to love and protect them unconditionally a bad wrap!

That's a lot of deaths that DHS is responsible for. Of course, those of us that have had dealings with these criminals are anything but surprised. If you want a good loving family destroyed, if you want a healthy, happy child dead, get DHS involved. I don't know of one single case yet where DHS got it right and actually helped anyone.

"37 children who came into care as a result of Child Abuse or Neglect by a biological parent or other adult in the home, and later died as a result of the abuse/neglect...." Wow.....that is almost 1/3 of those deaths were while in the care of DHS. That is disturbing.
