I read the story about Christian Choate today. My heart is broken. After Ethan and Kyron and Zahra, this poor little boy. Wouldnt it work for every child to be registered in to the equivalent of a Facebook like network? There could be 3 levels of security. the first one would be that any child that is in foster care or home schooled must sign on daily or have an adult that is not their foster or egg/sperm donor provide proof of life at least once a week. This can be changed per situation - but the children could be signed on at a daycare, or school. Case managers advocates and relatives with permission could log onto level 2 access- that would be confidential - notes from day care- or POL posters as well as any comments for case managers (POL poster says mom has new bf - is concerned etc.) yes I know that this could become ugly and mud slingy but im trying to think of how to keep these children on our radar. the final security level is for children ages 7 that are in high risk homes - case workers - and /or advocates - teachers etc. While I know that an abuser can force a child to write whatever they want - there could be communication between fosters and teachers...I think it could possibly work - and at leaast they can find a way to keep proof of life and access the location of children..
