Re: “Twenty problems with 20/20's coverage of the Justin Harris 'rehoming'

And you missed #21. The Adoption & Safe Families Act of 1997 provided the girls with Medicaid which was intended to provide any and all medically necessary treatment. The AR Medicaid agency could have offered intensive wraparound or residential care to stabilize the girls. The Harris' were never offered these services that the children are entitled to under federal law-under their subsidized adoption. Across the nation, states are routinely telling families that Medicaid "doesn't cover intensive wraparound or residential care." That's a lie, as evidenced by EPSDT class action lawsuits that have been won in MA, WA, CA, and are currently pending in IL. States have a financial incentive to "rehome" (which is now being called unregulated custody transfer) kids into foster care to draw down federal funds that can't be accessed by adoptive children-unless the state "rehomes" them back into foster care via a neglect/abuse charge. Don't be fooled into thinking that a rehoming via a regulated custody transfer via a child welfare department is any less damaging than a parent led 3rd party guardianship. Read "Second Time Foster Child" to see what a "regulated custody transfer" really looks like! There is an average of 100 children being recycled into foster care in IL and there were 470 in Utah in 2005. Who is telling THAT story?
