Subject:RE: Experiences of Bio Mothers with Children in Foster Care

Thank you so much Jonathan for your response. I greatly appreciate your direction. I would absolutely love to hear your wife's input as well. I am needing to identify two online listservs. I will use the National Association of Council for Children as one of those.

I would suggest seeking out parent attorneys. One place to start may be the National Association of Council for Children. Another may be your local dependency/juvenile court and the parent attorneys who work there. In my state (North Carolina), I would call the Office of Indigent Services who may also have some ideas about who to contact. Let me know if you are okay with me sharing this email with my wife who is a parent attorney and who participates on list serves that address such issues.

Maybe check to see if the caseworkers would be wiling to speak with the mothers about your research and find out if anyone is willing to participate? Good luck!

Sent: Thursday, October 01, 2015 1:14 PM To: Child-Maltreatment-Research-L@cornell.edu Subject: Child Death-Related Investigative Reports Greetings! I am in search of state (or county-level) investigative reports which follow the death of a CPS-involved child. These reports usually document the investigation re: the circumstances leading up to the death and the agency’s involvement with the child/family, and also identify “problem areas” and recommendations for change. Just to be clear, these reports are distinct from those issued by child death review teams. I have identified 4-5 such reports (MA, FL, VA, CT), but would appreciate learning about more.
