There aren't a lot of things that really get under my skin, but this banner is so frusturating to me!
As most of you know, part of my job is working with foster parents. Some foster parents are really great and come into the foster care program with the best intentions, but there are some that just aren't the best.
Every pair of foster parents have different motivations for getting into the foster care program, but I really feel that the message of "subsidize your income" is the wrong reason to get started in foster care. Yes, foster parents are given a monthly foster car payment, but that money should not be the reason that you begin fostering children! Fostering children should be about wanting to help children that are in need and wanting to give them a loving home, however temporary it may be!
The type of people that are drawn to foster care for the extra income really should not be foster parents. I think that this banner is sending the wrong message about the reasons that families should foster children. It's about love, not money.
Stepping off my soapbox.
