The death of a child by arrogance and ignorance ....

There are no statistics that will ever help you understand what it feels like to be a child abused by the child protection system. No one really watches out for these children they are all lost within a world ruled by narcissist, pedophiles and do-gooders. 
A child removed from a home of poverty aka neglect is thrown into a broken system where true abuse becomes a life they can not escape.  Even when the child is allowed visits from parents and family who can witness the physical marks of abuse it is still ignored by arrogant workers who believe the parents are incompetent and their reports are retaliation. So sad when a mear accusation can cause child removal but isn't enough to protect a child from abuse within the system.
By far the worst betrayal comes when a child finds the courage to report the abuse themselves and they are quickly dismissed (caseworkers often believe the reports from the foster carer above that of a child). Years of sexual abuse, physical abuse, starvation and child labor is the consequences of this inept mentality birthed from the very system created to protect them.

What about us? What about the children in care?

What about the children that were ripped and torn away from their family? Why are we getting pushed into the darkness? Why? Why? Why?
Are there any ANSWERS? NO! there are no answers for us kids and I will not stand down anymore

I have been in care for 11 years now and I have had the worst bringing up then I would have had living with my parents….. I have been pushed around, pushed to the back, put down and I have my rights thrown out the window I’m here to tell everyone that this needs to stop it needs justice!!!!

With the residential and foster care systems, these are a couple of the rights kids in care (are supposed to) have:

• Kids have the right to feel safe and be safe. (Remember what happened to that little angel in foster care sit and think for one second if you have to did she have her rights torn and ripped up?) why haven’t FACS said anything?
• Kids have the right to be healthy and go to the doctor dentist and all other facilities (this should be if you are living in a FACS placement or not if you are under the age of 18).
• Kids should be allowed to be a child and treated with respect (with my own experience this right wall full of bull I had to grow up from the age of 12 I never got the child experience. Some workers don’t know what RESPECT is - workers these days get a certificate in social welfare and there known as a perfect candidate for working with Facs children.
• Aboriginal kids have the right to feel proud and strong in their culture (residential children are lucky to even go to NAIDOC week).
• Kids have the right to have their say and be heard (another own experience as you can tell just from reading this I am a strong minded person I have gotten turned away snickered at ignored and spoken over when I have tried to voice my opinions and have my say).
• Kids have the right to be given information about themselves.
