The story of four children who recently died whilst in foster care

Here is the story of the four children, one my own, and the three others belonging to other parents that I have met in the last year since my son died.

Like the others in our sad little group, I do not like to talk about what happened to my beautiful son, Luke Borusiewicz. I will say one thing, when I look at the photos of our last visit together, I can see the love for me in his eyes, on his poor little scratched face. Two days later a scratch on his penis that needed him to be taken to the doctor it was so severe. They ignored pleas from myself and Lukes mother. These people answer to noone.

I have the parents of these deceased children's permission to discuss it though, and to cast it into the public light. None of us want our children to be forgotten, and we all want justice. I know it is inevitable that I will meet more parents whose children have died in foster care due to this departments blatant negligence. If you know of anyone, please send them to me, it is time that we all came together, and expose what has, is and will be happening.... This email address is being protected from spambots.

This department believes that 100% of it's workers are right, 100% of the time. Nobody is perfect, we all know that. I tried and tried and tried to get my son back. Ask any one of the thousand who have been wronged by these child safety departments Australia wide, to these workers, many of the senior ones especially, this is some sick sort of game, where their prejudices and narrow mindedness is at the forefront, they are right no matter what, and if there is a personality clash, watch out, your child is going to pay for it.

HE carried four-year-old Bailey's coffin, every bit the grieving step-father. But last week in the Supreme Court, Nathan William Forrest, 22, was all smiles - flashing his family a wink and a thumbs-up after Justice Elizabeth Fullerton jailed him for a minimum of just six years for Bailey's manslaughter.

It was a nightmare end to a family's struggle with the Department of Community Services during Bailey's sad, final months.
His mother Jessica Constable wept during the hearing and maternal grandmother Karen Chapman collapsed in her husband Jeff's arms and was taken to hospital by ambulance.
