    Maine Department of Human Services was the agency that took Ayla from her mother's family, gave her to the father's family in whose care she suffered injuries before disappearing. Maine has a dismal record of protecting children, from the infamous case of Logan Marr, suffocated by her foster mom, a former DHS worker, to the ongoing case of Mila Malenko, whose father gained custody despite a lab finding of 56ng of meth in her urine, despite his being substantiated for sex abuse when Mila was two, despite the fact that he has refused to allow her mother court ordered visitation for 8 months (lorihandrahan.com), to the countless cases of children whose names and stories have not been told, all put in peril by the agency charged with protecting them. Someone needs to look at the larger pattern into which these stories fit. The powers that be seem willing to watch. Who will bear witness? The lives of little children depend upon it.
