Cult Kids Sent To Group Homes

The polygamist kids are being sent to group homes:

Child welfare authorities have said the children from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints likely will not go to traditional foster care families, but to larger residential settings so groups of up to 20 siblings can remain together.

They will be going to public schools and have "house moms", but not their own mothers.

I have very mixed feelings about this whole process. If the children are really abused...of course they should be removed without questions. If there was no abuse than they really should stay with their mothers.

The problem with "house moms" is that they never stay around too long. It is a difficult job. it is constant. It gets to be too much for most people on the long haul. The children will have a very hard time bonding. I feel for them because the ones that truly will suffer the most are the children. They will suffer well into their adult years if not their entire life. It is so sad!
