I agree that there truly are abused children out there and CPS does a lousy job at protecting them as well....The motive? Thanks to the ASFA law (adoptions and safe families act), a situation was created in which bonuses are paid for each child adopted out of foster care..The bonuses are from $4000 to $6000 per child.. Once this bonus was established, the number of babies adopted doubled even tho the law was set up to help teens...Just in the State of Oklahoma, children in state custody has soured from about 8000 four years ago to almost 10, 500 today. Children are not being reunified with their families, even when service plans have been complied with.....Child deaths in foster care are soaring as well...

The bonus isn't very much in comparison to potential life long problems.
On cell. Can't go into details, but the ASFA doesn't help place children in a way that drives CPS to purposely not return kids to family. I'll be back. Thanks.
