United States of America Foster Care System
I believed that we should plan parenthood, the birth control pill, the sex education,
is not working, teenager do not seem to care. Do you know that over 748,000 thousands children are in the US Foster care system, because of abuse, neglect and or abandonment, over 115,000 children in Foster Care are waiting to be adopted.
The numbers of years a child waits to be adopted is closed to 30,000 annually and the number of
children who turned 18 and leave foster care system without a family, is just the same.
Those children leave the system with a feeling of not being loved, they goes out into the
world looking for someone to love them, and ended up pregnant and subject they babies to the
same pattern, back into the system.
Do you know that is cost between $160,000 per year to keep one child in foster care, I think it
time to slow down those unwanted babies, However, that is a task that the government have no
control of, we need to come up withways of making teenagers see that it not worth it, getting
pregnant and giving up your babies, and most of the time abandoning them;
Why not gave them an offered, that some of them cannot refused;
Money always work well for some folks, "Promise them $25,000 dollars to refrained from getting
pregnant until they 25th birthday, Someone might asked who is going to paid out this money
to teenagers to refrained from getting pregnant, "so who is paying the $160.000 per year to
keep one child in Foster Care?
The birth control pill, the sex education, the various number of leaflets, is not working, so why not
try this method of control, it might work and it might not, however, if the system can prevent four
thousands unwanted babies from going into the system, that a plus to the system, and not a
minus, and it might gave some teenager girl something to look forward too, a new start
twentyfive thousand dollars down payment, for her first home, a car whatever, she see fit to
used the money for...and remember not only does it cost $160,000 per year to keep one child
in the Foster system, it also cost $50,000 to adopted one of them.
This approached might seem harsh, or even pure malarkey, but according to those statistics,
those unwanted, abused and abandon children, might decrease.
Do we really need to add more children to the Foster Care System.. and do the tax payers need
to be flipping the bill over and over again, let's do something to eliminate this trend.
