@JM @redwhitebluedude @Steeltruth well, foster care is the main way older children, siblings and the disabled get homes. And, I'd be inclined to say look at the problems with the indian child welfare act.. it's led to the same scenario, where in lieu of foster care they look for distant relatives that arguably have no love for the child either and many these children end up back in contact with their abusers, experience new abuse or become indentured servants. .
@JM @redwhitebluedude @Steeltruth it's the catch 22, I know. The system is geared in favor of the check collectors vs the families that genuinely want to foster or adopt. which sends more people looking outside the U.S. because the system is so broken in the U.S. - the system's questions are designed to vet out the wrong people -- such as having preference or limitations in who they'll foster or not
on the other side, I'm reminded of a thai insurance commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk5vDet2_5w
@stringtags That is beautiful and rings so true. Thank you for sharing!
Saul Montes-Bradley asked me about orphanages and what happened to them. Many successful kids came from those. Today they are mostly gone like mental asylums. And where are the insane now? On the streets. Nothing is perfect in this world, but making an industry out of CPS with gov't funds is Not the answer.
@JM @redwhitebluedude AGreed. Sadly we have been forced by high taxes and strangling regulations to break up the nuclear family. Both parents having to work to feed, cloth, house and let the govt educate our kids has strained all involved. Getting back to a nuclear family is key with locally run education including CIVICS!
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
