Well, two down and upteen to go! I would be really interested to hear what foster parents say kids actually got. One i know said they got random stuff, along the lines of what your son had indicated. I would also be interested to know if the boys at CYS recognized their stories and asked their social worker where their gifts were. Does DCFS also open every birthday gift given to every child to be sure all are given equally? no? Of course not, and the fact that they throw that out as an excuse shows that they do not have any defense.

I have emailed this story to 20/20, CNN and Memphis news stations. These ladies sicken me, they are nothing but pure evil because a good soul could never do this to a child.

Although I don't live in NE AR, as someone who donates regularly to help fill children's wish lists,I am absolutely appalled!
I have been forwarding updates on this story to my contact at the attorney general's office. His advice is that the state police should be involved and investigating. I haven't seen anything about the state police being involved. Have they been contacted?
I will continue to update my contact at the Attorney General's office. While I'm not sure it will help, it certainly can't hurt.
