Are Foster Families Always Safer?

Are foster families always safer than the child's parent or guardian? I am not sure at this point. I am about to go on a rant again. This is the second story we have ran in the last few months about a child allegedly being neglected in a foster home and dying! The whole point of a foster home is to keep the kids safe! I cannot explain how much this infuriates me!

FROM CENTRALILLINOISNEWSCENTER.COM: The Peoria County Coroner says a little girl from Livingston County died as a result of head injuries.

Kianna Rudesill died Thursday at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center. The 4-year-old girl was in a state-licensed foster care home in Cullom.

According to the Pantagraph, the child, originally from Bloomington, was placed in foster care with her siblings after the biological mother was sentenced for two counts of child endangerment.
No one has been charged in the child's death--- DCFS, and the Livingston County Sheriff's Office are investigating.
