[QUOTE=WishUponAStar;978151]And Soundgod, I know you were wondering if child protective services really needed to take them away. Well, at least in situations I’ve seen, even if there is a tiny suspicion of neglect, abuse, etc. [/QUOTE]
No, I’m sure that there are guidelines that specify that the children must be taken into protective custody after any event like this. I’ll admit I was quick and didn’t even factor in the very young ages of the kids. It really stinks for the kids too because they are already foster children. Maybe the 2 year old will have no memory of any of this, but the 4 year old will certainly remember having parents switched at least once. I guess somewhere in the back of my mind I was thinking “they’re already adopted once, it can’t be good to have it happen twice in such a short time”.
Sadly CPS in Florida itself doesn’t exactly have a sterling track record. Let’s face it, if they did, this set of foster parents wouldn’t have created this situation to begin with.
But please everyone, keep in mind I’m not and never have been a parent, so I don’t know what I’m talking about. (Or do I?:blink:)
Edit: A 2 and a 4 year old alone in a hotel room? What kind of self absorbed idiots are these parents? Heck, they went out of their way to adopt them in the first place!
