wanting info about Min of Family taking kids

Postby Little Dragon on Sat Sep 01, 2012 2:36 pm

Hi KIV'ers.

I just found out about a family whose3 youngest siblings have been taken by the Minstry. The mother has left. Very sad situation. What happens when kids are taken into foster care? The older kids are with the father still. I hope the young ones go to a caring foster home. How do you know?

Anyone with info on this sort of thing , please respond.

I think I misunderstood. Is this man your friend or did you only find out about him from his ad he placed on usedvic telling the his side of the story and asking for furniture?

Sadly I am acquainted with this family. I had no idea of the situation. I fjust found out one of the kids had been injured. I don't know the whole story. If the Ministry got involved, they must have had a file on the family.

Terrible way to find out, though.

Yes,it's very sad. The whole thing. I do hope the kids are safe and can be together in the same home or at least be able to have regular visits with each other. Many foster homes can't larger sibling sets and they are often in different homes. I do know that the Min. does it's best to have them arrange visits though.
