I'm haunted about the death of this kid who jumped off 196th bridge in lynnwood. Usually, you would hear this all over the news if this child is someones child. But, because he came from a foster home, just breaks my heart. So sad, really sad. And, now the bad part state of washington is having a cut back funding foster kids. If they are going to cut back on funding unwanted kids. I think the Government outta mandate to give free tubal ligation or IUD to women that comes in to a clinic for prenatal care. Then, they should include giving these women IUD or just tie the knot. Just so sad this kids didnt ask to be born. And, makes it worst when they are toss from home to home. And you know most of these foster parents are people whod doesnt want to work but would rather get money from the government to have foster kids. ANd most of these home are not even stable. The sad part, all these foster kids have a bad name because of all the different homes they've been and all the exposure they been thru. Just so sad :) i wouldnt mind considering being a foster parent to a baby or 2-5 yrs old kids. The older ones, with all the go thru just scares you. If i didnt have any young kids. I would really consider one. You dont even have to pay me. Just help me supply food. We need these foster parents go thru some screening and training before they take these kids...i think they are better off to live in a boys and girls club, like a big family and we can all visit and take some of this kids out and expose them to some family gathering..:)Im here to make my opinion, but yet. I cant do anything about it..just so heartbreaking.
