Foster children's welfare raises concerns

Need for DSHS reform
On the flip side, I've seen a loving foster family totally used by the system as glorified baby-sitters [“What needs to change at DSHS after $11 million foster-care settlement,” Opinion, Dec. 23].

It seems the Washington State Department of Health Services (DSHS) can't get its story straight on an infant's birth family's situation. In and out, back and forth. Who is really going to take care of this baby's best interests?
