‘We are just destroying these kids’: The foster children growing up inside detention centers
States have so many foster children they’re putting them in detention centers and hotels.

  1. But we MUST stop allowing women to have abortions! Far more important to SAVE THE FETUS than it is to take care of unwanted children (for whatever reason!) or children whose parents are unable to care for them due to drugs, poverty, etc. and must turn them over to the government … who now complains there is a lack of qualified foster parents! So the kids grow up in FAR less than desirable surroundings and end up with health and mental problems.

    I guess I’ll never understand some people’s thinking.

    • Hello Nan. I was horrified by that article. Kids in juvenile detention / prisons with kids who committed rapes and murders and other crimes, kids who have committed no crime other than being without parents. Kids who live their entire childhoods in these places subject to the same rules as the ones who broke the laws. Also think of all the same sex couples willing to adopt that Christian adoption agencies are demanding the right not to place children with. Imagine that these Christians think it is better to house a homeless kid in jail than with loving same sex couple? The way that must twist these kids minds and emotions. The stories they told, it is child abuse pure and simple. Hugs

      • And you can be assured that many of these disadvantages kids will grow up to be criminals and rapists and murderers. There’s no getting around it. Many, many, many children suffer the consequences of decisions made by adults that can’t see beyond their own personal taboos and biases.
