April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Below is a infographic you can share with others via Facebook, Twitter, or any way you choose.
Below is the video ReMoved (only 12 minutes long). It’s a must watch for everyone really, not just foster parents, those interested in adoption, and child advocates.
I love what Lori McClurg said, “These children are our children; we all share in the responsibility to help improve their life outcomes.” She’s right, everyone needs to step up and do something for these kids who’ve been dealt such a blow in life. Not everyone is able to become a foster parent, but you can be a mentor, a tutor, or support foster and adoptive parents.
