Judge Janice Jack of the U.S. District Court said Tuesday afternoon in a 10-year proceeding against Texas over the failure of the foster parent system, it was time to “chase” and find a solution, anticipating a hearing. It ended without.

“All we want is to get together and find a solution,” Jack said. “I’m no longer interested in sanctions and stepping into fire. I hope these kids are safe.”

Jack suggested that stakeholders work with court monitors who have become experts in the subject area to identify solutions to ongoing problems that plague foster care. Her court clerk said the judge also canceled Wednesday’s continuation of the hearing.

For three hours, judges, foster child legal counsel in Texas, and state officials were discussing new discoveries from court-appointed observers. In detail, foster children spend the night, many are given the wrong or inappropriate doses of medication, are exposed to sexual abuse, engage in self-harm, are unlicensed and dangerous. The location (office, hotel, etc.) was included.
