The Times Leader investigation examined why Luzerne County has a higher rate of children in foster care than other counties of similar size and demographics in Pennsylvania. The series found that while it has been commonly believed that foster children are returned to abusive parents too often, the opposite is true: children linger in foster care for months, sometimes years before the courts reach a decision. (Aug. 13, 14 and 15, 1995)
