I have never claimed that all biological parents are bad parents, or abuse their children. I myself am also a biological parent. I know a ton of biological parents that are great parents that do not abuse or neglect their children. First, let me clear this up. I am not against biological parents. I am against parents that do abuse or neglect their children and that make the choice to place themselves before their children. I have written blogs when asked questions, and for help, by biological parents that hoped to get their children back. I did this because I was actually trying to help them because they asked me to help them.
I have never supported any foster parent that harms a child, nor would I ever. I have never denied that the Child Welfare system does not have major problems, and is in need of desperate reform. I can honestly say that there is not one part of foster care that does not need reforming including foster parents.
I am not against biological family members caring for children that would otherwise have ended up in foster care if it is in the best interest of the children. I have written several blogs concerning kinship placement including how to go about it, and making it work.
Funny how some like to call me, and other foster parents, names or make other negative statements concerning foster parents such as self-righteous, hypocrites, goodie two-shoes, rescuer, attention seeking, looking down my nose, riding my white horse, etc. While some question whether I think I am better than you (biological parents for abused or neglected children) I think I make better life choices. Just because I choose not to abuse, or neglect my children, does that make some people feel that I think am better? Remember we all make the choices in our own lives.
