Children's Aid Society removes son of Whitby homeless woman | Toronto Star

Wondering what others thoughts are on this. My thinking is, why isn't the kid with Dad? No mention of dad except that he provides some financial support. Nothing about her leaving an abusive situation or anything. Maybe he does not want to see the kid? Either way its strange that nothing at all is really said about him.
Poor kids though, I know it may sound bad but what about adoption for these children? Give them at least a chance in life.

Well, a couple of things we can glean. If she is on welfare, she would be required to seek full support from the father. Since he is only giving "some money" it seems likely he is not in much better situation financially.

The CAS can't release any information about the father to the press, and if the mother isn't saying anything, then there is nothing to publish.

.
Didn't even think of that. The article (and other related articles on this matter) really do not go into any detail on the why's and how's of this situation.
