What a horrible tale of abuse. Foster parents are supposed to love and protect the children in their care. Do you have love to give to a child? Consider becoming a foster parent today: http://www.kidspeace.org/fosterparent.aspx?ekmensel=77931891_50_52_224_1

In my opinion this is a prime example of the system completly FAILING to do what it was intended to do and that is TO PROTECT THIS CHILD. I have heard and read what the spokesman for CPS has been saying and it stinks right through the TV and newsprint. To place a child with a family that was just licensed and not monitor them very, very closely is an injustice in itself. Where is the accountability on the part of CPS?
