It would be wonderful to read here the support systems in place for those who foster children who have experienced extreme trauma in their lives. As well as information on the training a foster parent has available to them to address the needs of children who are born addicted to drugs, alcohol fetal syndrome, sexually exploited, neglected and physically harmed by their birth parents. Having known only a handful of birth parents who lost their children to the system and then did the rehab and parenting classes and are now successfully parenting, their stories need to be told for the one's facing severe issues. There is hope. And hope is nothing without backing to reform one's life to honor the children they have brought into the world. Kudos to the families which choose to foster. With all the inherent risks of bringing an unknown child or teen into your home, you need training and support.
A sad but well written article on the lost and or abandoned folks who hopefully are not forgotten by those who knew them, loved them and lost touch with them.
