I interviewed a parent, who was devastated , due to allowing two foster children to live in her home. She said, before the kids moved in, the social worker gave her very little information regarding the two boys (ages 8 and 12) that resided in her home. The boys never gave her too much trouble so she let her guard down and would allow them to play with her 5 year old daughter alone in different rooms in her home. One day, the kids were upstairs alone and she said that something told her to go and check on them. When she opened the bedroom door, the 8 year old had her 5 year old’s legs spread wide open, the 12 year old was on top of her, and both of their underwear were down. She said he was trying to penetrate her daughter. She was devastated and immediately had the two boys removed from her home. Afterwards, she found out that both boys had been sexually abused.
Mothers, before you allow foster children to move into your home, you must find out everything about them. Also, never leave them alone with your children. You must watch your children at all times, if you want them to stay safe!
