How he can be an unfit parent to one child and a fit parent to the other is one I'm still working on. I'll get back to you just as soon as I figure it out.
Look at the genders of the children involved.
Boys don't need nor deserve "fit parents".
Now if gwallan had even read the original article, he would have seen that the boy was older (I believe if memory serves me correct - older teens, where the young girl was pre-teens and even younger when the case began). Older children have a harder time in foster care and being placed due to their age. This begins about preteen years.
