This is about the child!

AdoptionAngel, It is true that it will be an enormous adjustment for the child, were she to be transferred into her sister’s home. It is highly likely that the child moved from many homes prior to her current placement, yet she still has been able to adjust. Therefore, it is not unreasonable to think that this could be the same for her transfer to her sister’s home. Furthermore, it seems doubtful that the child has no relationship at all with her sister, if Shelly has been involved in the long process of determining placement of the child. During these situations, there are multiple visits and it is unrealistic to think no relationship exists or could exist in the future. I suspect the child has not been in the foster care system her entire life, so who’s to say the child never “had” her sister, or vice versa. [You can't lose what you never had.] The article mentions severe medical problems of the child. If these lead to a shortened lifespan, shouldn’t she spend these years with her biological family, if they can provide for her? Should the rest of her biological family be punished for the transgressions of her parents?? Should the random stroke of fate that allowed the child to be placed into her current foster home determine the course of her life, simply because of her young age or the foster family’s reluctance to let go?
