He is the definition of evil. Already let down by her parents, enters foster
care, and meets Mr. Hoskins. Just isn't fair. I hope she gets the help
she needs, with a better job of screening her next foster parents.
"Outside of traffic tickets, court records show Hoskins has no prior
criminal history in Utah."===========So, no criminal
history in Utah. Good so far.What about the 49 other states?
If foster parents need to go through a background check before become foster
parents, they may need to start doing a more indepth background check. I bet
if you asked his neighbors, they may have been able to tell the investigator
about his nudist actions before placing a 13 year old daughter in this house.
This is so sad, and happens far to frequently. The large majority of foster
parents are people trying to help these unfortunate children coming from
incredibly varied and challenging backgrounds. That said, I'm disappointed
at how often these things seem to take place. I feel for kids in foster care.
They feel like pawns in the world and occurrences like this just reinforce that
feeling. They've had (generally) tragic lives up to the point they enter
"the system" and that system - while trying to be a vast improvement on
what they've been through - brings as much instability to them as it does
stability.I wish I had solutions to offer. I know DCFS does what
they can and will take any reasonable suggestion for improvement seriously. My
heart just goes out to these kids - especially the teens who feel hopeless about
being adopted and having a real family.
Well duh! When DCFS places children in foster homes where there is deviant
behavior the propensity for something bad to happen goes way up.Why
in the world did it take DCFS multiple visits of "While watching video of
Zachary would hug and hold the victim on his belly.
Zachary would then kiss the victim multiple times on the lips."?If one from the general public sees even once what may be signs of abuse we
are obligated to report it or we may face strict penalties.
