with respect, I saw a doco on the work for welfare in the states as well and it appeared to have devastating consequences for the children involved. Often times the kids were left with irresponsible friends or relatives and some tragic incidences had occurred as a result. Grandparents are not exempt from being irresponsible either. I know some grandparents that you wouldn't trust your dog with. Your'e right the media does twist things but there are two sides to the story. It is hard to get accurate news but the net is a good place (if you can discriminate) to find non biased reporting.
