People who love killing babies continually point to people who think killing babies is wrong and say “You need to adopt more kids.” As if children in bad circumstances should just be lined up and shot, then buried in a mass grave. Which is basically their position. See Democrat John Rogers Justifies Abortion Saying Unwanted Kids Should be Killed Now or Later. Anyway, Alabama, which recently banned abortion, is also setting new records in adopting foster children. So much for that sacred cow.
A record number of children from Alabama’s foster care system found permanent homes during the 2018 fiscal year, Gov. Kay Ivey announced today.
There were 710 foster children adopted during the year that ended Sept. 30, up from 509 in fiscal year 2017 and 502 in 2016. The previous record was 676 foster children adopted in fiscal year 2009, according to the Alabama Department of Human Resources, which oversees the foster care system.
According to the article, about 70% of children in foster care return to their biological families, with the remaining stuck in limbo as their shitty parents have lost parental rights. No, I will not walk back the shitty comment. If your kid is in foster care, it’s probably because you’re a piece of crap. The excuses won’t fly here. So spare me.
Alabama’s people are stepping up to adopt more of these poor kids who need permanent, loving homes. Which I think was rather the whole idea of the foster care system.
If I may say to any errant pro-baby-killing troll: the reason a lot of people do not or cannot adopt children is that adopting children is a tricky business. Department of Human Resources Commissioner Nancy Buckner said this is how Alabama made this new record possible:
Buckner said the increase in adoptions in 2018 is the result of a joint effort that involves juvenile courts, probate judges, DHR and other partners.
Which I take to mean some skids got greased, some red tape got cut, and a little bureaucracy got slashed, making it easier for people to adopt foster children.
Alabama is doing a number of things right. Keep on keeping on.
