I understand how you feel. It’s easy to think at first that it should be done purely from a giving standpoint. BUT, raising kids takes a lot of effort. Homes, food, utilities, have to be paid for at the least. Providing a home for kids is something that a person can’t just make happen by wishing for it.
People are always telling me they are looking for a child caregiver that is just doing it because they love kids. Well my love for kids can not pay my mortgage, life insurance, auto insurance, gas, electricity, water, telephone, food, taxes, taxes, and more taxes. I must be paid for my services. So why shouldn’t the foster care system also be paid for? I just think they should require the parents that lost the kids to pay child support in the least.
