Although i agree with not transferring foster kids without the court's knowledge, obviously, for the children's safety, i can see the other side to the problem when a situation arises where the children are left to being abused/exploited in a home since the original foster parents can no longer financially care for the children properly,cannot afford to take the case to court and have no next of kin. I knew of 2 classmates in high school were who were foster children, one was abused in a previous home, luckily she had been transferred to a better, more loving foster home and another who was recently transferred from a foster home in an urban area to a foster home in our suburban area, apparently a worse home since he acted out in class, stole money from me and a few other classmates, for food he later confessed to our teacher, and physically threatened to hurt me with classroom equipment (I did nothing to provoke it-we didn't even speak to each other prior the incident). In the last case, I'm not sure if the case went through court.

Enough support will compel our national policymakers to end child trading through "re-homing" by acting immediately to hold oversight hearings, initiate a comprehensive GAO investigation, convene senior Administrative leadership to examine and coordinate state policy, and pass legislation to strengthen policies and practices that will prevent harm to adopted children.
