What being a foster parent is really like by Kevin Schroeder This is my opinion. It is what I believe. But I am open to the possibility of error. This is my take on well over a half decade of trying to have children which ultimately culminated in my adoption of three children whom I love.
It was and still is the most difficult thing I have ever been through. I hope that by sharing these thoughts you might walk away changed, if only a little. Additionally, if I have written something here that offends you, bear in mind that you probably have not gone through what I went through.
This post is not shiny and polished. Sometimes polish is needed and sometimes rawness is needed. This post has currents upon under-currents which you probably will not understand.

This was somewhat of a brain dump. The premise is that some evil queen in Storybookland curses the whole place and all of the characters end up in Maine not remembering who they are. Snow White and Prince Charming, whose real name is James, apparently, hide their new baby in an enchanted tree where it is protected from the effects of the curse.
The down side is that the baby is transported to the same area and appears on the side of a road where someone picks her up and she is placed into foster care where she is bumped around from home to home until she ages out of the system and becomes a bounty hunter.

What Children Need and Do Not Need. The learning goals for the Privilege Workshop are to increase the understanding of privilege amongst the participants by presenting the facts; that each student has most likely been in a situation where privilege affected their life in one way or another, both positive and negative.
Being a Parent is a Privilege, not a Right.
