Oh, my, where to begin?

Houston CPS cut off funds to the woman in March when they learned the children were not living with her.

Apparently it didn't occur to Houston CPS to contact police and the FBI about 4 missing children!

The woman, who divorced in 1990, was approved for the adoptions after passing home studies conducted by Spaulding for Children, a nonprofit child welfare agency in Houston, Olguin said.

Lemme guess: this outfit gets paid a fee for each home it approves.

'No magic number' Joel and Olguin said it is not out of the ordinary to place as many as seven children with a single parent who is seeking to adopt them.

Of course not. Why would it be, when all CPS cares about it collecting their bonus for getting children "adopted"?

Newt Gingrich was right. We need orphanages, and we need them urgently. It's time to stop propagating the lie that there are plenty of adoptive homes available for all the kids who need them. And the "pro-life" movement needs to recognize and end its complicity in the spread of this lie.

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.
