Foster Care Fortnight 2017 is launched

fostering and adoption

This year’s Foster Care Fortnight has been launched by the Fostering Network.

As the name suggests, the Network is a charity which has been working to promote foster care for close to 20 years and the Fortnight is their biggest awareness-raising event each year, designed to showcase the commitment and dedication of existing foster carers and highlight the need for new recruits.

Participants can download and display posters and placards, take part in online campaigns and make dondations to the charity.

This annual typically attracts significant media coverage and the vocal support of celebrities and politicians.

The Fostering Network explained:

“Thousands of new foster families are needed every year to care for children, with the greatest need being for foster carers for older children, sibling groups, disabled children and unaccompanied asylum seeking children.”

It would seem the business of removing kids for big money just keeps growing.
this is not how the Human Race was meant to be. very sad.
if more resources were pooled into looking at why families run into problems instead of just removing children then thousands of kids would still be with their parents. many parents have simply made very minor mistakes or fell victim to a misunderstanding of what really happened or simply a misinterpretation of events by school staff or a Social worker which can then be very quickly twisted into something sounding far more serious by the time its written into a report. by this time the parents are in the spiders web of proceedings and its almost impossible for them to prove their innocence at the hands of the closed family courts where control is likened to that of a Nazi death camp where justice and human rights do not count. this is the dark reality of whats going on. Local authorities are driven to do this by financial incentives which are very likely shared with Social workers and others involved in the whole process. that truth hasn’t been uncovered yet but i have a feeling its only a matter of time before it is.

Well said it is an ‘industry’ trafficking children regardless of the emotional abuse/trauma that causes life long issues is being done in secret courts with one judge who rubber stamps whatever ‘hearsay’ is written in fabricated sexed up reports, it has to stop its criminal organised and stinks of social engineering an abomination.

Yes katherine, only people like us know the real truth behind the veil of secrecy. we have been there and witnessed our own family lives burned at the stake as if we were criminals. they do say money is the Root of all evil and there is no doubt its the root of this child stealing industry.
