I am positive there are parents who are responsible and end up with kid in
foster care… I wasn’t making a blanket statement. (foot in mouth
again). Just that the foster kids I was familiar with came from drug homes
where mom and dad were both heavy into drugs, were dangerously abusive to
their babies, and really needed foster parents themselves. Except for one
boy who was testing his oats as a teen by becoming violent to his disabled
mom. She didn’t take two minutes of it – she dropped him at social services
and said “I can’t have violence toward me in the home – goodbye.” He came
home after a year totally changed. You never saw a nicer young man – he
said he discovered how nice it was at home and didn’t want to leave again.
