I absolutley agree. But there are things you can do. You can report bad Judges and lawyers to the Judicial Committee, bad social workers to the state
TN has already been sued and then found in contempt for non compliance, if you have problems the Governor is not going to help you. He's part of the suit. And the former referee to the Juvenile Court is now the regional director of Childrens Services.
I suggest you completely read this and see how much of it applies in your case. If there have been things not followed report it to the Brian A monitor

In response to requests from local child welfare advocates to investigate the systemic failings of the Tennessee Department of Children's Services (DCS), Children's Rights filed a class action suit in 2000 on behalf of the more than 9,000 children in DCS custody. A settlement agreement calling for sweeping reforms was reached in 2001, but initially yielded few results through several changes in leadership. In 2003, Children's Rights brought a contempt action in federal court seeking to expedite implementation of the court-ordered reforms. In the years since the contempt motion, DCS under new leadership has made some progress, especially on infrastructural issues, but much work remains to be done before the benefits of the settlement are fully delivered to the State's abused and neglected children.
Children's Rights is continuing to monitor the work of DCS to ensure the health and safety of children in the Tennessee foster care system (Learn more…) http://www.childrensrights.org/site/PageServer?pagename=casesTN
