    Some people say no matter what the child will be better off with straight parents rather than gay parents. However “Williams Institute confirms there is no difference in the behavioral outcomes of adopted children raised in same-sex households when compared to those raised by heterosexual couples” (Perry). Whether gay or straight it does not affect the children’s behavior or emotions. Even though the couple is gay the children will still be better off with them apposed to being in foster-care. The foster care system is unstable because children get passed around like a toy when it comes to foster homes. All anyone wants is for a real family and to be loved no matter the sex or sexuality. Society needs to realize that “Being taken away and…

In 2013, 58,699 children in California were living in foster care. Of…

Youth in a residential placement may be coming from a failed placement with a foster parent and or removed from a biological parent or family member’s home.

    Growing up, children in foster care are faced with the uncertainty of what will happen when their 18th birthday arrives. With many not graduating high school, and little stability, emotional support or general 'life training ', foster children in Canada often fall into poverty when no longer supported by the system. Required to leave their foster homes at 18, most of these children have no clue how to pay bills, pay taxes, and upkeep a job and school at the same time, let alone cook for…

    My opinion on foster care is that yes, it does help most families, but I still do feel as if there are many issues in the system for placement and caregiving that needs to be fixed. The foster system has helped many kids reunite with their families, but at the same time, it has mentally and physically traumatized many. I feel it has traumatized many because many children have been emotionally, physically and sexually abused more than once. As I had stated earlier in the problems, over 28% of the…

The term foster parents means nothing to him at the time because he is terrified, alone, and worried about his own parents. He may have siblings that, despite the best efforts from social workers, weren’t able to be placed with him. Suddenly, he is taken in, cleaned up, given fresh clothes, and a warm bed to sleep in. Over the…
