According to surveys, 1,200 kids enter foster care in the United States every month. These children have a life filled with stigma and uncertainty. Thanks to the foster care system they don’t have to starve and sleep on the streets begging for money. This is something that has been made only for the protection of children.

But unfortunately, foster care isn’t paradise for all the children in it. Yes, they do meet good and loving people who want to take care of them but as with everything there are a few bad apples in the bunch. The happiest day however for any of these children is the day they get adopted.

1A really happy child

There are millions of children in foster care which is a very sad thing to see. These children are given food and shelter and even education but not the love and warmth other children get. The day a child is finally adopted from that care is the best day of their life.

2Foster care is full of children in need

In America, the foster care system is responsible for taking care of orphaned children until they get adopted. They do this by placing those children in need into an institution, group home or private home of a state-certified caregiver referred to as a “foster parent”. The child lives here with others until they get adopted.
