Child Abuse in Foster Care

by Louise B
(Eastbourne, United Kingdom)

My son was abused mentally emotionally and even beaten by foster carers/adopters there dosent seem to be anywhere for him to talk about it as we hate social services they wont listen their house is full of more children now my son is 17 sleepwalks has symptoms of early onset bipolar disorder or/and adhd. he needs councilling for his anger problems. these people ARE NOT FIT to have children they are in it for the money they kick them out when they are 17/16 they make me sick my son is more damaged now than before i have always suffered depression and i got involved with a violent horrible man and before that an alcoholic who tried to sexually abuse my 8 year old daughter and broke my sons arm when he was 4. ive always loved my kids and feel so bad for the past. but the adopters with the cruelty they inflicted onto my son and their cruel twisted lies have ruined our future
