September 2012Governor Gregoire:We are pleased to submit the Report on Severe Abuse of Adopted Children. This report
is a joint project of the Children’s Administration and the Office
of the Family and
Children’s Ombudsman and examines ways to improve our adoption system, protect
children and strengthen families.To assist our work, we convened a multi-disciplinary group of professionals within thechild welfare and adoption system. The
report’s objective analysis of adoption issues
and corresponding recommendations resulted from the efforts and collective knowledgeof this workgroup. We appreciate the contributions of each member and the dedicationthey brought to this project.The report recommendations address each phase of the adoption process fromassessing and training prospective adoptive parents, to support services for adoptedchildren and their families. In order to implement the majority of theserecommendations, it is essential that CA develop a detailed work plan identifying astrategy and timeframe to carry out these reforms.While cases of severe abuse and neglect of adopted children are not unique toWashington State, our state is in the forefront of efforts to strengthen the adoptionprocess to address this issue. Thank you for your leadership and commitment toexcellence in our child welfare system.Sincerely,Mary Meinig Denise Revels RobinsonDirector Ombudsman Assistant SecretaryOffice of the Family & Children Ombudsman
