Keep Laila Home

This petition had 1,778 supporters

My husband and I have been fostering our biological niece for almost two years now. We live in the state of Kentucky but the child is from the state of Oregon. Now after two years and non stop fighting for the child and her best interests, Oregon is making us send her back to live with a foster family that is not even related to her. We have had people in the state of Oregon with a state agency make up stories and false allegations against my family in front of judges and other hearings. The court appointed attorney for the child told a reporter in Oregon that my husband and I are "horrible people but what can you expect from people from Kentucky, they are all related". This is the type of person the state of Oregon has looking out for the interest of their foster kids. There is something majorly wrong with a system that does not believe that family is what is best for the children. We love our niece and want what is best for her.  This is the first stable home she has been in since birth. This child has been through so much trauma in the first 2 years of life before she came to live with us. Now she is happy and is doing really good and is able to function like a normal little girl. Two therapist here in the state of Kentucky have stated in writing that moving her out of her safe environment would be damaging to her.  Please help fight to keep Laila safe in her home with family here in Kentucky.
