English term or phrase:the boys lost on that one
On a letter of reference for a family wanting to foster an additional child: "The are excellent parents and do not use drugs or alcohol. My experience with them in observing their parenting skills is when they had two foster boys in their home two years ago. You could not have found better parents. However, the children were taken suddently from their home and placed with a permanent family. The boys definitely lost on that one."
