i do not doubt that this man did this to the teenage girl. by mistake;, the dhr took my kids away from me for three weeks one time. when i got them back;, they were traumatized. the foster parents had beat them black and blue--for crying for me. i never had put a mark on them myself. miscarrige of justice. i know this happens to foster kids. i hope someone makes him pay. but;, im sure he will get away with it. some of these children dont need to be taken from their parents.

I too am a foster parent.Yesterday I was contacted by my foster child's worker and therapist and informed that an investigator would be over shortly. Apparently they don't believe that 4 year olds have playground bumps and bruises, and he had a bump on his collarbone. The Therapist called the child abuse hotline, and after persuasion, he said that we hit him. I have never hit a child in my life. The investigator was helpful and when he asked the child about the injury, he said that his Dad did it, his dad who was recently released from jail for child abuse against the child. The dad who was not supposed to have contact with the child during his visits with his mother, but did.. So now here we are, foster parents accused of child abuse against a child we have come to love. Never again will we foster. My husband is a teacher and is not allowed to teach until the investigation is over, the childs worker has called and emailed me continuously (hourly) since the accusations were made, and demanded that I return home while I was grocery shopping, working, etc. I am basically confined to my home until they finish investigating. What I can't believe is that they have allowed the child to remain in my home while all of this is going on...

dhr is screwed up big time. they rather believe the lies that someone tells them instead of asking the person for proof of what has happen. i know this for fact because i was accuse of things that i did not do. long story short my mother made up lies to tell dhr about me hurting her when she would do the hurting of me. dhr believes the lies of ppl that tell those lies.
