Toughen laws to help prevent abuse of children by foster parents

I am requesting that current policies and laws regarding the care of children in foster care be toughened to address the abuse of children by the foster parents who are supposed to be protecting them. It is more prevalent than people realize that children are abused by their foster parents. These children are already vulnerable, and then they are hurt further by the ones who are supposed to be helping them, causing them even greater lasting emotional scars. While I am now an adult who has aged out of foster care, the abuse I experienced and saw my foster siblings experience still haunts me. I have seen my foster siblings be disciplined severely resulting in injuries like swollen eyes, welts, bruises, and etc.  I also experienced this myself in a foster home. My biggest concern is that current foster children will get hurt in their foster homes. So I ask you to pay greater attention to and strengthen laws that will help to increase oversight of foster parents and social workers to protect the children in their care.
