NSW parents who adopt a foster child could be paid up to $37,000 a year as part of a state government push to provide secure homes for some of the state's most vulnerable children.
The new reforms would help to deliver support to 900 more children each year, on top of the 19,000 children already in foster care.
Minister for Family and Community Services Pru Goward told Sky News the move would break down financial barriers faced by some potential adoption parents.
'We had a lot of wonderful fosters careers, who had children for 5-6 years and would like to have adopted but couldn't because they were low income workers and couldn't afford to live and bring up that child,' she said.
'I would hate to think that adoption in Australia and NSW became only for a privileged few.
Reasons given by CPS in Norway for depriving children of their parents

The list below was initiated on the 14 March 2012 and new points are added as time allows.
The list contains arguments all of which have been used by the Nordic child protection service (CPS) and/or allied professions and people in actual cases, such as in case reports and in court when the CPS argues for the necessity of taking children away from their parents and placing them in foster homes or institutions. They bring up the same kind of arguments to prevent foster children being allowed to return home in cases in which both parents and children say clearly that they want to be reunited. A couple of standard arguments are then added: The foster child 'has now developed attachment to its foster parents' (even when the child says no) and 'the child must have routines and stability and not be moved' (even when the CPS has moved the foster child many times).
Children in WA state care abused

In seven cases, the person responsible was living in the same household as the child victim.
Almost 90 children removed from their parents for their own safety were abused or neglected in State care in WA last year.
A Federal Government report revealed yesterday that 87 children were sexually, physically or emotionally abused or neglected in care — almost 2 per cent of the 4725 children in care in WA in 2014-15.
The biased and unbalanced views of child protection by mainstream media

Can someone please explain why the Australian Newspapers to not appear to print a balanced view of child protection?
All they ever print is how hard done by the caseworkers are (even when they allow a child to be harmed), yet only print how bad parents are.
In fact even the worst parents do most of the caring for the children and caseworkers do nothing practical for the children. All they ever do is paperwork. So long as they get their paperwork done everything appears OK.
Why are parents time pressures and needs not printed ever, to ensure proper community supports for parents, but the papers are fixated on staffing levels and the daily routines of handsomely paid social workers?
Here is the SMH complaining about staffing level on behalf of social workers
And here they are again complaining about the daily routine... They claim to be really busy but appear to have enough time to lobby and talk to the newspapers... What a joke
Even the first entry (8am to 9.30am) shows how slow they must be. It apparently takes an hour and a half to listen to 6 phone messages and pass a job to someone else. (They wrote three paragraphs of work on this hour and a half time slot to make it look like they were very busy. But in reality most of it refers to what they did on a different day. Usual deceptive reporting I think. If they are going to say what they did in an hour and a half why don't they just say that. All that the case worker reports doing is listening to a six phone messages and passing a job to someone else in the entire hour and a half. If they are so slow it is no wonder they need extra people... At $80,000 PerYear listening to those six messages cost the taxpayer almost $60 i.e. around $9.00 per phone call. Are phone sex agencies that expensive?)
Jeez - at that pace it is no wonder it took them 4 months to fabricate evidence in response to a request for assistance
Lawyer uncovers “alarming trend” as children taken without warrants

A federal class action lawsuit filed out of Southern California states that the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services has kidnapped “thousands” of children without warrant or reason.
According to the suit, which makes mention of several social workers and investigators, Riverside’s operation “makes a habit” of kidnapping young children.
Speaking with the Courthouse News Service, the Plaintiffs’ attorney, Shawn McMillan, said that he “uncovered an alarming trend” when investigating similar cases in the area the year prior.
“County child welfare agencies regularly subvert the constitutional rights of parents and children by seizing children from their parents when there is no danger to the child, and in fact no need to seize the child at all,” McMillan told Courthouse News. “The class action is designed to address a procedural problem. They [Riverside County social workers] as a matter of course don’t get warrants before seizing kids.”

It's not the system that lacks ethics and morals and its not the system that allows between 90 and 120 children in care to die every year in Ontario. It wasn't the system that refused to register with College of Social Work avoiding ethical oversight for 18 years or to refuse to cooperate with the Ombudsman and the Privacy Commissioner unless forced to by law, or to completely disregard fundamental justice, it took all the people entrusted to oversee the system to do that.
Child Protection in Canada hasn't earned it's dark reputation by doing good work and helping children and families or by serving the best interest of the community.
They've earned their terrible reputation by pitting parent against parent and pitting, doctors, teachers, police, daycare workers and anonymous informants against poor families in secret courts.

Inside child removal in Australia

IT seems like the government can be damned if they do, and damned if they don't when it comes to removing children from their homes.
No one really knows what goes on behind closed doors. But when it comes to protecting Australian kids at risk of neglect and abuse, our state and territory-based child protection agencies are expected to not only find out what's happening but to act when a serious threat of harm threatens the health, safety and wellbeing of our youngest and most vulnerable citizens.
