Why is the state tormenting these children given up for adoption by allowing personal reactions with parents who give them up? It understandably that children want to be with their biological parents but this is torture for them mentally and emotionally to allow this kind of off/on relationship.

It would be better on them and the biological parents to keep them together regardless of living condition than this kind of mental torture they are being put through. This should be stopped and dropped from practice, its too dangerous for children and adoptive parents and biological parents who have given up their rights to be involved at all. This is terrorizing to the children and not at all good for anyone, especially the children and adoptive parents who are always being threatened by the threat of state stupidity.

This really hit me "Foster children typically aren't given a lot of information so they've all grown up with unanswered questions about their lives." What a confusing mess.. especially if the child knows little about what is happening. How hard for a child.
