Another Child Died in Foster Care

Carol Poole called 9-1-1 at approximately 2 a.m. on September 22 reporting that her 2-year-old foster daughter was unresponsive. During the 9-1-1 call the apparently distraught foster mother told the dispatcher that the girl had hit her head the previous day while playing but she seemed fine. When she went to check on her she found her not breathing. Also, during that 9-1-1 call she followed directions given by the dispatcher to apply CPR. The girl was rushed to the local hospital. She was then taken to a children’s hospital.

Her biological parents were located a few days later. Her biological father is serving a prison term and he was escorted from the prison in Lansing to the hospital. The biological mother was located and brought to the hospital. The reason they needed to be located – they needed to give permission to remove their daughter from life support. The reason Allison Newman’s biological parents were allowed to make the decision to remove their daughter from life support is their parental rights had not yet been terminated even though Allison had been in foster care since six-months of age.
According to reports from neighbors the Poole’s were a nice couple who planned to adopt Allison in the near future.

I wonder what went wrong in this home.

Allison’s attorney claims he visited Allison in the foster home “once or twice this year” and she seemed to be doing well. I would like to know why he had only visited her once or twice in the past nine months. I want to know the last time a social worker visited that home.

It was reported that at the time Allison sustained her traumatic head injury the foster father was out of town on business.
