Best interests of who?

Remade life not enough: Ohio high court denies mom who lost daughter


This statement particularly disturbed me: "If the court had ruled for Fugate, Roberts said, it could have opened the floodgates for other parents to do the same thing. "It could have created problems not only for us, but other children services agencies across the country," he said."

Is this really what we're worried about when we're practicing family and juvenile law? The administrative convenience of the agency? Seems a bit backward to me.
