Gabriel Fernandez and Aliyah Smith which resulted in their death. Their lives were jeopardized because their caregivers were not being checked up on properly by social workers nor were they drug tested monthly. Both children were taken into the system as babies/ young toddlers. The problems they faced were long term abuse and neglect. If they were once in the system their caregiver should have been required to do mandatory urine tests once a month, this small thing could have prevented their such young and awful deaths. They should do weekly family visits like group homes and have phone calls without notices. The biological family should be allowed to visit the child in foster care after a drug test and a background check. Social workers and drug free family members should be in contact with teachers, daycare, doctors so they can record any abuse or illness. Gabriel Fernandez and Aliyah smith had many family members that cared and saw the abuse and when reported the abuse the child had no justice, instead, they were pronounced dead at such a young age.  We are so much because there are so many babies, kids, and even teenagers going through abuse mentally and physically. Children should be able to feel safe in a foster home after being taken out of a bad situation already. They should not have had to go through such torture and pain, these children should be able to have a fresh start with good parents and people that want to love and take care of them. We want justice for every child in the foster system, to feel safe and loved and to have a fresh start at a new life. It's so sad hearing about all these young kids dying and being abused, tortured and dying. This has happened not only in just our city and all around the world but in our own families that we love. Incompatible foster parents including the ones that killed these two innocent children are tricking the system into teaching the kids how to lie about what happened to them. These children need to be cared for more often by the social workers and should have once a month's check-up, physical exams by a doctor to look for sexual and physical abuse.
