A recent watchdog report - which looks at the journey of children coming into care in the UK, creating stability, contact arrangements and eventually leaving care - has revealed "heart-breaking decisions about children in care," says this article from BBC News. Among the cases shared in the report are a teenager given a tent to live in, a child denied the chance to say "goodbye" to his dying mother, siblings abruptly removed from a foster family wanting to adopt them, and a fostered girl returned home to find her bags packed and a taxi to a hostel waiting for her.
