Kids rights are most important rights of all

This article about child advocates fighting for children to have permanent homes hit on several nerves for me.

Similar to the article about mediation in New Zealand, this article points out the obvious: in severe, obvious cases of abuse and neglect (cases you would have “thought would have been open and shut after the boy’s sister had been violently shaken by one of the children’s biological parents, suffering injuries that would eventually kill her.”) children’s rights have to be the first priority.
There are numerous examples of children who’ve suffered too long at the hands of (to put it lightly) bad parents, but does anyone know of any examples of severe abuse where the parents were exonerated?
