For the children

I have the pleasure of sitting on two children’s commission dealing with the outcome of children in this state.

One thing this article didn’t mention was that after about 7 years (regardless of age when entering) the children experience a 2nd tramatic episode. The 2nd episode appears to be related to the first episode

The 2nd trama has been disruptive to the successful permanency.

I went into Foster care twice. As a toddler/before school, as a fifteen year old.

At 22 it was a bad time in my life that took a 1+ to get through.

YES Miss Julie it is great to adopt a 10 year old.

Everyone do what you can to help children be successful. Volunteer, Foster, respite, work in the field.

Thanks. Your friend.
