New parents are hard to accept, especially when the child has been passed home to home. These attachment issues may restrict the child from moving forward in their lives and excelling in the new environment provided (Robin). The lack of stability in the system is only setting up the children up for failure, according to Stone, “we treated foster children as if they were our own, yet many of them never felt as if they were.” It is difficult for young children and adolescents to comprehend the separation of their parents let alone the process of moving to multiple foster homes while under the guardianship of the state. Other children mask their hesitation at being attached to a family by letting others see only what they want to see. The children are attached, but only on a “superficial level” (Robin).

Journal 1 Response: It was very hard trying to decide on which entries to write about, until I got into Mr. William Jacobs conversation with his grandson. It’s the early 1940’s and he’s recovering from a battle injury, when his future Mother in Law dropped in to see him, and to also share some rather intimate detail about her daughter’s health. She told him that when her daughter was a little girl had an operation and the doctor at the time made a mistake, causing her never to be able to have children.

The rising deaths and DCFS cases is a testament to the disservice our nation is doing to neglected and abused youths. Once kids are placed in the foster care system, they are often moved from one placement to another which may negatively impact all aspects of their lives that are critical to success in later life such as school, social relationships, and environmental/community influences. This constant separation and loss may lead youths to feel hopeless, and resent social interactions as they feel that social relationships are extremely fragile.

When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public.
