NC Mom loses five children to foster care when she asks for help with housing.

Here’s an article about a mom who lost her five children to foster care because she is in desperate need of housing for her and her family and requested for help on Craigslist until she could locate a job.

Not only was she punished for her creativity and efforts, but here are possible calculations related to this matter: 5 children in foster care for one year including services = $75,000. Fair market rent for a 4 bdrm apt in NC for one year = $15,204 ($1267 * 12). $10k for case management and services. Total $25,204. Does this make sense? Of course, this is not calculating the emotional toll.

Here is the link to the article.
States must use common sense when it comes to Family law.
