Two-year-old dies in Texas after being placed in abusive foster home

Two-year-old dies in Texas after being placed in abusive foster home

The Texas division of Child Protective Services may be ultimately to blame for a child’s death this past week after the child was taken from her parents because they smoked pot and put in foster care with the woman that would eventually end up killing her.

 

Joshua Hill's daughter, Alexandria, was taken from him and his wife in November 2012 because they smoked pot in their Round Rock, Texas, home while their child slept. The 2-year-oldchild was then placed in an abusive foster home by a private agency contracted by Child Protective Services.

The toddler was rushed to a hospital last Monday night with severe head injuries. Alexandria was later flown to Scott and White Children’s Emergency Hospital in Temple, Texas.

“They wouldn't tell me what condition she was in or what was wrong or what had happened," Hill said. "The only thing they would tell me is I needed to be there. When I got there, I found out that Alex was in a coma."

"When I got there, I found out that Alex was in a coma"

Last Wednesday night, Alexandria was taken off life support and died.

Police said the foster mother, Small, could not come up with a story that would explain Alexandria's severe injuries.

Last Thursday, they arrested Small and charged her with murder — her bond is set at $100,000.

Another foster child was removed from Small's home on Monday.

While the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) removes children such as Alexandria from their homes, they leave it up private agencies to do background checks on all foster homes.
