Children are entitled to a secure upbringing. It's called childhood and it is their birthright. The reason people aren't given adult status until they're 18 in this country, is because we recognize that children aren't able to care for themselves and make appropriate decisions concerning their own welfare. They need guidance, and they need love.
As the election year progresses, many candidates in both parties and at every level will say it. Child-welfare professionals work mightily to make it a reality. Our country's laws and policies are intended to promote its essential truth: Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, permanent and loving family.
The poster is simple; Superman on the left, Batman on the right, about to do battle. The title reads; "Orphan Fight." No big deal to you. Not that big of a deal to me either. But I run the nation's only monthly foster care magazine and let's just say folks are less than pleased with this particular meme.
In no way, and in no fashion am I a saint, and I believe that foster parents from all over would echo that sentiment. We are not saints. We become tired, worn down, and exhausted. We have our own frustrations and disappointments. There are times when we succeed, and there are times when we experience failures.
