Hello, my husband and I are foster parents in Mobile, Alabama. We foster a 16 year old girl and a 12 year old girl. Their older sister (19 with a baby) lived with us until the State social worker became very jealous of our relationship. The social worker said that she has never heard this girl call anybody "mama!" The social worker moved her out of our home and placed her in a group home for young expecting mothers and young mothers that have nowhere to go. This child clearly has somewhere to go!!! My husband and I want to adopt these girls and get them out of the system. The social worker say's that she wants our 19 year old to stay in the group home to learn a lesson, but we are welcome to adopt the other two.
These girls have been moved from home to home and been in foster care for 9 years!!!!!!!!!
Since the girls have been with us they have gone from Special ed to Honor roll. They are active in ROTC, cheerleading, serving on boards, etc.
We want to adopt 3 black teengers (1 with a baby) and get them out of the system. THE SOCIAL WORKER IS THROWING ROAD BLOCKS IN OUR WAY!!! She refuses this request!
PLEASE GET THIS MESSAGE TO MICHAEL AND GEORGE BECAUSE THEY WILL BE IN MY TOWN TOMORROW TO DISCUSS THE MENTORING PROGRAM.
Many times when we are trying to help our children we have barriers such as this and the statistics make it seem as if we don't care about our own...this is not true!
