There’s an Angry mommy article on two close friends of mine that foster. We were so excited to have a single mom and a gay cpuple highlighted at such a level here in our county. So very many people here that think they can’t foster, and this article was an eye opener for many. The results have been great for new family inquiries.
Here’s where I’m pissed off- a local news person (Heidi Harris) has come out and said that only straight couples should foster and adopt. Of course we’ve now all written to her- with no response, but she took the article down. It’s still out there though. I’m so mad 😡. Our “orphanage ” as it’s called is Full to capacity. Babies wait in hospitals.
We need good FP, how can someone let their personal opinion affect something they know NOTHING about. I’m sure there are now single parents and gay couples that have seen it, and may be thinking twice about possibly becoming FP.
How do we go about repairing some of this damage? I’m so sad 😔
