Texas District Judge Barbara Walther, responding to a state Supreme Court ruling last week, signed an order filed by attorneys for the parents and Child Protective Services, allowing the parents to begin picking their children up from foster care facilities around the state. The first emotion-filled reunions came Monday afternoon, as parents trickled into foster care facilities to pick up their children.
It would be nice to see some CPS heads begin rolling soon as well. But I’m not holding my breath. It’s absurd that the judge put any restrictions on the parents; I certainly wouldn’t blame them if they decided to leave Texas and never look back.
