Why Can't We All Just Get Along?

Seriously, why do things like this happen? I mean, the foster system is so badly in need of repair, but you'd think somebody would notice that a child was dead for 11 months.

I have no words of blogger wisdom to offer in any of this, it's just so unbelievable and so sad. And it points to a system that is failing the children it was set up to protect, and that is a really big problem, a problem that should be fixed well before we start arguing about less consequential things or shoving blame. It shouldn't take the untimely deaths of children to urge us to reform the social services system.

And Eli7 is going to go into family law and make it all better, right?

[I will now step off my soapbox.]
