WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A foster mom is heartbroken and angry after the death of two-year-old Matthew Navarrete Reyes in Wheaton. She says the system failed the little boy -- and his three brothers -- sending them back to their neglectful and drug- addicted parents who Montgomery County police have just charged with murder.
Holly Tremblay reached out to WUSA9 to say something has to change. She says there is no way these boys should have been given back to these parents.
"We had to drop them off at that home, and they're screaming, 'Mommy, mommy, mommy!' as we're driving away," said Tremblay, a special education teacher, via Skype from her home in Orange County, Ca.
"It wasn't hard to believe at all, unfortunately, because we saw the signs," Tremblay said.
