What an awful tragedy this is that the 21 month old child had to die! It behooves me II say that this child would obviously be better of in the custody of his grandparents, especially if they were to assume all fiduciary & legal responsibilities ( and they were.)
While I am sure that the sovereign State of Oregon & its Child's Services did what they could II a degree. They are obviously overwhelmed & the child died as a result. I love grandparents & would trust my mother June & my father Joe with their grandkids any day. The wisdom & knowledge that a grandparent can impart to his child's progeny are beyond valuable.
Plus grandparents can put their grandkid charges in the right state of mind to get a great start & succeed as students in our Alberta Education system.
A Grand Affair,
