DCYF investigated about 10 cases of abuse involving Nashua mom prior to daughter's death | New Hampshire

DCYF investigated about 10 cases of abuse involving Nashua mom prior to daughter's death | New Hampshire:
NASHUA — Prior to the 2014 death of 3-year-old Brielle Gage, the New Hampshire Division for Children Youth and Families investigated about 10 cases of abuse and neglect allegedly at the hands of her mother, according to Jeffery Strelzin, assistant attorney general.

My Comment:
I will never understand why in God's name, DCYF and the Family Court  returned Brielle and her siblings to their Mother while Felony child abuse charges were pending. I also don't understand their reasoning behind ALL of the other many children, whose parent's are proven innocent in Criminal Court of child endangerment charges,the children unharmed, why Family Court charges are never dropped and the children never returned.
The death of this precious little girl should never have happened and if the State had given custody to her Grandmother, like they should have, she would be alive today.
This has nothing to do with enacting new Law's, but everything to do with abiding with the Law's we already have in place.
R.I.P. Brielle.

NH Supreme Court sides with mother over state in parental rights fight | New Hampshire

NH Supreme Court sides with mother over state in parental rights fight | New Hampshire:

LYNN, J. The respondent, the mother of a minor child, appeals the order of the Circuit Court (Weaver, J.) terminating her parental rights over the child. See RSA ch. 170-C (2014 & Supp. 2015). On appeal, the mother argues that the trial court erred by: (1) granting the petition brought by the petitioner, the New Hampshire Division of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF), to terminate her parental rights while the direct appeal of her underlying criminal conviction was pending; and (2) finding that termination of her parental rights was in the best interest of the child. We reverse and remand.

My Comment: I can't believe my eyes reading this article. This has to be a first in NH!

First off, this case is reversed and remanded because the Mother's felony assault conviction of the child is on pending appeal. For the life of me I will never understand how parent's whose Criminal child endangerment charges are dropped, (because in Criminal Court evidence proving innocence is admitted) whereas evidence proving innocence in NH Family Courts are NEVER allowed admitted and the child is NEVER returned.

The State can terminate a parents rights when they are sentenced to long term confinement and won't be eligible for parole for at least six years. I'm curious as to how long this rule has been in effect knowing that other's confined for as little as 18 months have their rights terminated. And to top it off, the convictions have nothing to do with their stolen child!

Found it: https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubPDFs/groundtermin.pdf      
 Current Through January 2013

Another common ground for termination is a felony conviction of the parent(s) for a crime of violence against the child or another family member. Also, a conviction for any felony that results in a long term of incarceration and requires the child to enter foster care because of a lack of alternatives may also constitute a ground for termination of parental rights.

Should You Adopt a Child When the Birth Parents Have Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar Adoption | Adoption Situation - Lifetime Adoption:

It is believed that genetics do play a part in if a person will develop bipolar, though most relatives of a person afflicted with this illness will never develop bipolar disorder. If one parent has bipolar disorder, the risk to offspring is approximately five percent. It can be as high as 14 percent if other relatives, such as an aunt or uncle, also are diagnosed. In the unusual case where both parents have bipolar disorder, the risk to offspring is approximately 30 percent, but can increase slightly if other relatives are bipolar too. 

Impact of Adoption on Adopted Persons

Impact of Adoptionon Adopted Persons

As discussion of the adoption process becomes
more open and accepted in American society,
and as more Americans have experience with
adoption, there is also more attention focused on
those involved in adoption—the adopted person,
the birth parents, and the adoptive parents (often
referred to as the adoption triad or the adoption
constellation). This factsheet examines the impact
of adoption on adopted persons who have reached
adulthood.

Being an Adopted Child

A multitude of issues may arise when children become aware that they have been adopted. Children may feel grief over the loss of a relationship with their birthparents and the loss of the cultural and family connections that would have existed with those parents.

For The First Time, Data Detail Just How Hard Foster Care Is On Children’s Health

For The First Time, Data Detail Just How Hard Foster Care Is On Children’s Health | Center for Health Journalism:

We’ve all heard or read the gut-wrenching stories of children in foster care who’ve had to endure abusive treatment or squalid conditions, and of social workers and child welfare systems failing to carry out their most basic mission. The prevalence of such stories compounds their awfulness.

............The data did reveal one counter-intuitive finding: “(C)hildren adopted from foster care had worse health than their counterparts placed in foster care.”
