  1. Sadly true, Val. I lost two foster children I loved with all my heart because when the mother realized she would not get State support for them anymore – she came and got them. She didn’t want them. I had them for half of the girl’s life. I potty trained both of them and had them in a preschool for children with developmental problems. After she took them…the boy wound up in crime & the girl pregnant and unmarried, just like the mother who had both of them with two different men – never married – got a severe case of STD that thankfully rendered her unable to have more children. She counseled her sister and other young women to get pregnant, never marry, and collect state welfare payments. Losing those children shattered me. Thinking about it shatters me all over again.
