Well, I adopted from foster care and I can assure you that there were deeper issues than the way they were dressed and them not having expensive toys. It's hard to accept but sometimes kids are abused and neglected by their biological parents even when the family has support. My twins first parent's received thousands and thousands of dollars in therapy, multiple rehab programs, multiple parenting classes,personal parent aides, housing and food help, free child care to help lighten their parenting responsibilities and every other service under the sun and yet the family still was not able to parent safely. Terminating their parental rights took YEARS and several removals from the home. The rights of the biological parent's to parent their children FAR outweighed my sweet little girls right to a safe, loving home where they could reach their full potential.

As a sister to 4 adopted siblings, I just have to shake my head at this. I know their stories. I know the hell they came from. CPS didn't just decide to swoop in and pick up a few kids just for the heck of it one day. If CPS hadn't gotten involved my siblings could have DIED.
