Does it outrage anyone else that this is happening? I mean... seriously! This isn't a horrible sweater that Aunt Sally gave you for Christmas to be "regifted" to someone else. It's a CHILD! How can you just give them away?

It should outrage anyone with a heart. I'm sure we will hear all about how rare it is but IMO once is too often.

It is sad :(

My cousin did foster care and had two little boys. After being in the system for like 8 years they got adopted. We found out a year later the mom put the oldest in a facility and the youngest was put back in the system.

I read that this morning. It makes my stomach turn but I certainly understand, many kids have alot of emotional issues that the parents simply can not cope with I think we need to have a better mental health system to help parents and children and really anyone who needs it.

Thats sad
but think about it this way
maybe they just couldnt support the child anymore financially

Rehoming? Nice euphemism. Let's call it what it is: abandonment.
