I know that this happens every day. I know that children are criminally abused and neglected but today in San Fransico a woman (I can't validate her with the mother label) threw her three young children off a pier and they drowned. A man suffocated his 10 month old baby and another Florida couple is on trial for stariving five children.
I could have found loving families for all nine of those children.
I easily found a family last week for a 29 day old baby with a brain bleed. I sent in a family this week on a unbelievably tragic, beautiful shaken baby who will now be a total care child. I have another family waiting on the selection process for five black brothers and two other families in on two different sets of five siblings each. That's 17 kids that won't haunt me at night. Seventeen kids that will find, and thrive in, loving families. Seventeen children that I won't worry about.
But there are many, many more that I need to find families for and, worse, yet, untold numbers that will die in America at the hands of those that brought them into this world.
