I know this seems like a loaded question...but I'm curious. Foster parents agree to take in other people's kids; kids who may have been neglected and/or abused. I think it's inappropriate for someone put in charge of these kids with special emotional needs to put them in child care and take off. Here's the example... my neighbor is a foster mom to 2 teen siblings whose mom neglected them. They are great kids; they come over to my house and hang out several times a week. I was startled to hear from the girl that their foster mom is dropping them off at her mom's house and going to Mexico for the weekend. JMO...but I think that's wrong.

OMG! I could go on forever.. One last thing, the cure for abandonment issues is NOT never leaving the child again, it is COMING BACK that helps them heal. They don't trust anyone to come back, and they never will until someone they love and care about leaves, and DOES come back.

I don't know about that. Every person needs a vacation once in a while. Just because this woman is a foster parent doesn't mean that she isn't allowed the chance for a break. I am a mom to two kids 13 & 12 and twice a year I drop them off at my mom's and take off for a weekend. Does that make me a bad person? I love my kids more then anything in the world, but they can drive a saint batty without a break. Don't judge a person unless you know everything that is going on, and even then unless you are that person you never really know everything.
