Over the years, the entertainment industry has capitalized on stories about children who are in foster care or adopted. While some of these characters, such as Anne of Green Gables, are heartwarming and inspiring, others put fear in a viewer’s heart, leaving them to wonder why on earth anyone would take a foster child into their homes.
So, what is fact and what is fiction? Are children up for adoption in Orange county and other California areas angelic saints like Pollyanna or should they be avoided at all cost?
Just like Other Kids
The truth is, children in foster care are just like any other kid. Children are put into foster care not because of something that they have done wrong, but because they have no family that can provide them with a safe and supportive home.
