Its still common in Texas for foster placements and adoptions to be protested for racial differences (black children removed from Caucasian homes, Hispanic children removed from Black homes, etc). One of the biggest heartbreaks I witnessed as a foster parent was seeing 4 little Hispanic sisters being removed from a very warm and loving and stable home of two retired black school teachers, the only parents that the two youngest girls had ever known. The protest was filed by their uncle, who sucked up their money for two months after their removal, and then abandoned them at the very steps of the local CPS office. They were placed in a group home and grew up angry and unattached.
So I keep eharing. And I keep wondering why the people of Texas don't put a stop to this nonsense.
