Re: “Arkansas’s overloaded foster care system

There is more to Ivy's story, it is one bedroom per two people. Clearly, someone in DCFS wants to make more money on having foster kids that taxpayers AND the federal government have to pay for. The Arkansas Times should look at bank statements for officials in Sebastian County, AND DCFS officials, to see exactly how much are they making and is it because they get money per kid in foster care? I sense corruption in Sebastian County. "Overzealous police" are overzealous for a reason, and some of the reasons for removal are just outrageous. Instead of trying to guilt people into becoming foster parents, maybe focus on making parents healthy and better. It sounds like the parents wanted help but DCFS is more interested in ripping children from their families, then failing to place children with relatives. Being placed with relatives should be a top priority for DCFS, not residential treatment homes.
