OMAHA, Neb. -- A 1-year-old boy died after he was injured and taken to a hospital on Thursday. The child has faced challenges since birth, records show.
Police said the boy was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center in the early hours of Thursday with a critical injury that wasn't described. He died at the hospital.
Davion Winrow was in foster care since he was born. Police said he was taken to the hospital by the person who was caring for him at the time. The name of the individual is not available because the investigation is still ongoing, police said.
Davion was born on Sept. 18, 2006, to Lisa Moten. According to court records, she was a known alcoholic and a drug addict. As a newborn, Davion tested positive for cocaine and was placed in foster care, and Moten's parental rights were terminated, records show.
Records show that Moten had previously lost parental rights to three other children, two in 1994 and one in 2003.
Davion was scheduled to be place up for adoption in February.Happy New Years

I thought foster care was supposed to be BETTER than the homes these kids came from?

From July 2009:
On Monday, Ashford sentenced Poole, 25, to 22 to 24 years in prison for child abuse resulting in death in the September 2007 death of Davion, a baby who had been in foster care after being born to a crack-addled mother...
HHS had placed Davion with Poole even though Poole had never been a father and had a difficult upbringing, during which he stabbed another child at age 8...
Ashford convicted him of child abuse resulting in death, rejecting Poole's arguments that the child died accidentally.
