There is no way that I can adopt a kid from foster care that is old enough to talk.
I was just on the adoption boards reading about a foster mother that was asked by her foster child why Santa never found them before? The child asked if it was because the child was bad?
Most of the advice on the board was about how to lie some more to the child to make them feel better. I’m not for lying to children. There is no Santa Claus. Anyhoo … this is more about one person’s response that if the biological parents ARE telling the kid(s) that there is a Santa Claus then you can’t tell the kids the truth or the birth parents could get upset with you. Really? REALLY?!
It’s obvious to me that I cannot be around a child that can speak because once the parent finds out that I don’t believe in god, don’t lie to children, and have little respect for authority I’m going to be in big trouble! Lol
The adoption worker asked that we be honest with her, so at least this will help us be specific! A child 0 – 1 year old it is! Lol
