Don't foster parents receive some sort of money? Maybe her biological family is finally taking her back for the paycheck.

It just chaps my hide that society seems to think that biology is somehow stronger than love. I have a lot of relatives who are related to me through adoption, not biology. My husband, as I mentioned, was adopted. I have two adopted nephews. My husband's friend has two adopted sons and one biological son, and my husband and I discussed adopting ourselves. I had a cousin who was adopted too.
So many people who can get simply ripped out of my life because I don't have a biological tie to them.
Had there been biological relatives capable of caring for this little girl at the time her parents abused her, she would have been given to them then, but they apparently either were unable or didn't want her. So now that she has a family she has always known, the blood relations turn up and she gets simply ripped out of one life for another?
No wonder people choose abortion.
I was wondering the same thing about why her relatives didn't step up in the first place when she was given a black eye by her biological parents and take action to take her in at that point.
