god i could not agree with you more!! some of the stories my husband told me just broke my heart. how can someone who signed up to be a foster parent treat a kid so badly. its not like they were forced to be a foster parent, they signed up for it! Omni Visions is nothing but a joke all they care about is money! most of the time thats what all the foster parents care about. every parent my husband stayed with got so much money for keeping him, which was suppose to be spent on things he needed, well needless to say the poor guy got maybe one or two new outfits & that was about it. now im not saying all foster parents are bad, cause he actually lived with some that were really nice & spoiled him terribly. we hope to some day become foster parents, not for the money but so we can hopefully make a good impact on a few kids.

I would love for some of you so called parents to become a parent to a child who has already been abused in some way or another by their own parents. These theriaputical foster children are hard core !!! They have seen and done more things than most adults. These same "KIDS" like telling. you the parent, what they are going to do and you cant stop them !! What do the foster parents get to do with these kids.. 1) time out 2) make them write sentences 3) take privalidges away (what a joke) 4)Call the case worker and hope they get the message that day..HAHA People have the wrong idea about what "fostering" a child is about.. Do you really think it is puppy dog tails and lolie pops... No being a foster parent is HARD !!! NO PIECE OF CAKE. I am not saying ken taylor was right, i think he should be prosecuted, but i know for a fact he took in kids NO ONE WANTED in their homes. Those kids were level 2 and 3, very high risk... and risks he took. I do not like this man ken taylor, but i do know the kind of kids he took. If more of these lame ass parents would take care of their own kids the way they should , DCS would have fewer kids to care for. Wake up parents and Take care of your own kids correctly!!! I get so tired of people lashing out about foster parents, so untill you walk a mile in our shoes , SHUT UP about something you dont know about. But as for Omni and DCS/CPS their a joke!!! Trust me it is not worth any amount of money you get to raise these children, you can give them the world but it really does not matter. These children are gonna be what they want to be no matter how well you try to raise them, and DCS will not help you at all !!!It is a shame what has happened to this young boy, but to all those fellow Theriputical Foster Parents ... GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Ken Taylor became a grandfather early this morning. While ken's oldest son sits in a Jefferson county jail for drug charges while his
live in lover gave birth for the 2nd time. Her 1st child was taken away and placed in foster care
because the baby boy was addicted to meth, hydro's, oxy's, etc when he was born. The poor little fellow was in the hospital for the better part of his 1st year. Let us pray that this baby will not have to be subjected to someone like Ken
Taylor, his son and so called mother just because she gave birth to the baby.

When he was indicted for first-degree murder his bond was increased from $25,000 to $50,000. Dr. David McNeil and Otis Stubblefield, both members of Manley Baptist Church, put up the additional $25,000 in a property bond so Taylor didn't have to fork out any more money.

Taylor and his family are living with Taylor's parents in Jefferson County. The trial is scheduled for March 9, 2009.

If he's convicted of first-degree murder, he could get 51 years. If he's convicted of second-degree murder, it's 15 to 25 with no chance of parole.

If these kids are so great then why are they living in a foster home. I got so sick of watching his family on tv crying over their sweet son and/or nephew. My question is why were they not taking care of him instead of someone else. Also, none of us except Ken knows what exactly went on that night.

Maybe, he was just wanting something refreshing after one of his work outs.
