A young man traumatized at age 7 by a foster parent is now suing two agencies as well as his former foster father. Now 12 years old, he still suffers greatly. The allegation in the case is that the foster dad had not been appropriately screened before being licensed as a foster parent.

The agencies being sued are Kids in Distress and ChildNet. Kids In Distress issued a statement in regards to the suit: “While we cannot share any additional information regarding allegations due to confidentiality regulations, Kids In Distress is dedicated to protecting our children and will comply with any investigations.”
