This story broke on the news last night and I had to write the name down and double check this morning to make sure it was really true. It was. This woman was responsible for making sure children were not abused in Foster Care. REALLY? A Drug Addict? No wonder we are losing children to murder in Foster Care- it is past time to change this system

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A central Florida woman employed as an investigator for the Department of of Children and Families was arrested over the weekend after she was caught with 15 grams of cocaine in her possession, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Susan Cunningham, 39, was seen buying drugs at a motel known for drug activity, deputies said.
She was subsequently pulled over and at first, she denied having any drugs. A K-9 unit was brought in and the drugs were found, according to wftv.com.
She was arrested and bonded out of jail on Sunday.
Cunningham’s primary role at DCF is visiting homes to make sure children aren’t being abused or neglected. She has been with DCF since 2005.
Her current investigations will be turned over to other agency workers.
In a statement to WFTV, DCF Director John Cooper said Cunningham’s termination papers are already being drawn up.
