Vicious Cycle

Whatever happened to foster care?

Welcome to the world of WTF! An Australian court has decided to award custody of a five year old child to her  heroin addict, sex offender father because her mother is even more of a friggin nightmare than him! The child, who already has behavioral problems and a speech impediment, no doubt stemming from being burned on the butt, attacked by a dog and beaten with a shoe, will now live with dad and his knife/sword collection ( though the court has asked him to remove it). In handing down the decision the magistrate said “The father provides calmer parenting with more clearly set boundaries than the mother does,” Hmm and luckily for the girl, her dad is on a disability pension and hasn’t worked for ten years due to depression so he will have heaps of time to give her all the love and care she needs. The mum, you say? Well let’s put it this way, soon after giving birth to her baby she left the labour ward to buy heroin. Child protection campaigners are mortified, horrified and seriously pissed at the courts decision while the Department of Human Services say they are no longer dealing with the case.

    I cringe when I hear cases such as this. No he’s not a fit parent and it’s about time the professionals got a grip. She’ll be dead in no time. I feel like stealing these kids away and hiding them. No wonder they have problems. It’s so so sad. Poor little girl>

  2. But the nanny state still fuckin’ lives on. Why is it when people get into government work, they leave their brains in the toilet?

  3. the problem is that there are not enough CARERS to do foster care work. drop the baby bonus of
    AU$5 000.00 for a start. people are buying plasma widescreen tvs and then they dump their kids into the system, seriously it happens.
