"My friend who grew up in foster care has so many issues with self-destructive behavior and self-esteem because if she didn’t act like a golden retriever, her foster family would label her “troubled” and have her moved.

Basically if kids act like kids they’re called “troubled”, so they’re taught that they have to be this impossible perfect inhuman thing up to the point where either they’re lucky enough to find a good family, or the stress of this unattainable expectation leads them to a place where they actually are “troubled” (I hate that word so much by the way)…"

whereinthewarehouse, in response to “U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing Temper Tantrum

It bears knowing that this Haitian child was branded “attachment disordered" and subjected to an intense regimen of "attachment parenting" in which children are forced to ask for basic necessities like water and food.

One of the leading proponents of this brand of “parenting” is American adoption expert Nancy Thomas, whose standard for good adoptive parents is as follows:

"If you don’t know if a parent’s a really awesome parent or not, we have a little test. You look at the child. If the child has their head and their arms and legs still attached, that’s it! It’s an awesome mom, an awesome dad. And you know, it’s just proof right there. Because if they weren’t an awesome mom and dad, they would have ripped the child’s head off by now, or at least an arm."

Please share this post and become a MEMBER at http://lakotalaw.org/donate-new to effect permanent change for the Lakota children. The Lakota People’s Law Project and the Lakota tribes of South Dakota have been working on achieving the permanent solution to the corruption of South Dakota’s Department of Social Services by rerouting federal money from the state and getting it directly to the tribes. For this to happen the Lakota tribes will have to overcome many hurdles and organize their own foster care and other family planning programs. Although we have worked on this struggle for over 8 years, we are finally breaking through and creating the system that will prevent Lakota children from being kidnapped by the state of South Dakota and taken from their communities. 8 of the 9 Lakota tribes have applied for federal funding to assist them in planning for the installation of these programs and the Department of Justice, in conjunction with the ACLU, has just released an amicus brief supporting the Lakota children and condemning the practices of South Dakota. The full brief can be read here: https://turtletalk.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/122-1amicusbriefoftheunitedstates8-14-2014.pdf  Please help make this solution a reality by donating to help the Lakota children remain with their families!

Please Keep Sharing and become a Member at http://lakota.cc/1kvf8ka to help create a foster care system run by Lakota, for Lakota and end the corrupt practices of the state of South Dakota.The children of the nine Lakota tribes of South Dakota, over the past ten-year period, have been ten times more likely to be taken by the state than White children. Every year since 2001, an average of 742 Lakota children have been seized and forcibly removed from, not only their Lakota parents, but, indeed, from their entire Lakota tribe and culture by the State of South Dakota and “placed” in all-White foster care settings. Approximately 10,000 such Lakota children have, therefore, been essentially kidnapped from their Indian culture since the beginning of this century. Although Lakota children make up less than 13 percent of the child population of the State of South Dakota, they make up over 60 percent of all of the children presently in state foster care institutions and non-native homes in the State of South Dakota. Lakota foster care children are indeed “money-makers” for the State of South Dakota, which classifies ALL Lakota children as “Special Needs Children”, thereby authorizing the State of South Dakota to collect up to $79,000 per child, amounting to some $65 million in federal monies per year for the state.

U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing A Temper Tantrum




"Having an instant multicultural family was magical for about two weeks,” says Stacey Conner, a 41-year-old American mom from Spokane, Washington.
After she volunteered in an orphanage in Haiti in 2005, Conner and her husband adopted a 5-year-old Haitian boy named “J.”
Conner claims the boy had attachment disorder and began a strict regimen of attachment parenting of constant surveillance in which a child must often ask for food and water. After two months, J threw a tantrum where he unintentionally hit Conner’s nose with the back of his head.
Conner says the 5-year-old’s strike was accidental, but describes it as “a domestic violence situation.”
"Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even like J.” J was then sent to live with another family in the Midwest.
Conner’s biological children adjusted seamlessly to life without their adoptive brother. But other people were puzzled. Neighbors who had seen J riding his bike asked, “Where’s your son?” When Conner answered truthfully, “I’d get the most horrified stares, so I’d keep walking. And I didn’t tell many out-of-town friends or extended family for months.”
Despite such events, the Conners were approved by local social workers to become a foster family, and in October 2013 received a 3-month-old boy as their first placement.

"They were found barefoot in January, huddled under a blanket against the biting High Desert winter cold, two kids on the run from a former foster mother, who had bound their hands with zip-ties and beat them."

Reporter Garrett Therolf’s unflinching look at the tragic problems within California’s private foster care program isn’t an easy read, but it’s crucial for increasing awareness of the children at risk of abuse within the state’s system. Read the full story here.

(via latimes)

It bears knowing that the nightmarish child abuse disbelieved by the masses is not only institutionalized in adoption and foster systems, but literally recommended and often mandated:
