Josiah William Baker now — fostered, then adopted, by Jon and Tina Baker of Twin Falls, who picked up the 4-month-old from the hospital. Now 3 years old, he has permanent brain damage and developmental delays. He's non-verbal and can’t be left alone. For Josiah and other neglected, abused or abandoned children, Idaho needs a foster care system. But it's an overburdened system with a shortage of foster parents, overworked social workers, a lack of systemwide oversight and a culture “undercut by a constant feeling of crisis,” said a February report by the Legislature's Office of Performance Evaluations. NOTE: This was my opening image for a four part project on foster care. Josiah actually made it into two of my slots for the month on totally different occasions. The other one was a daily story on the Rising Stars Therapeutic Riding Center. He just so happened to be one of their clients that day.
