Is putting children in Foster Care REALLY helping them?
Look at these statistics!!! Can you believe this???
At the time of this chart …
There are 408,425 children in foster care.
Girls in Foster Care pregnant by the age of 19 …. 50%
Former Foster Kids in U.S. Prison … 74%
Carcerated Within 2 Years of “Age Out” … 50%
Former Foster Youth on the Death Row … 80%
What are we doing to our children???
Does this sound normal to you? Please take another look at these statistics. These numbers are unbelievable and outrageous!
So, is putting children in Foster Care REALLY helping them?
Obviously not! Then, who is really benefiting from this system?
There are so many things wrong in this system. From the above statistics, it seems quite obvious that keeping children OUT of the foster care system should be a HUGE TOP priority. S o, how do children get put into the system? Well, calls in to the DCS Abuse Hot Line are categorized by priority. Maybe we need to take a serious look at how these calls are handled and prioritized. In that effort, please read the Legislator Letter Series Letter 6 to better understand what is happening … and then send those letters to the legislators so that they can see for themselves and then hopefully everyone can work together to … Stop the reign of terror by DCS on families and children in Arizona!
We at the Miracle team are well aware that there are many good families in our country who foster for the right reasons which is to genuinely open their hearts and homes to a child in need. There is a small percentage of the total children in care who do need and would benefit from good foster parenting. However, by studying reports and scanning charts, the percentage of children with good outcomes is not inspiring. Maybe by leaving children who are not in danger with their families, we can reduce the number of children in the foster care system so that the truly good and generous foster families can take in all of them — giving safe, secure homes to those who need them. A resounding ‘thank you’ to all the good foster families out there! Our goal is all the same … safe, secure homes for all children.
