Re: “A child left unprotected

As an adoptive parent of foster children I don't feel like I can stand by and not comment on this atrocity. I am outraged at the fact that grown adults feel that they can toss children around like they are animals. In fact, I don't think most of us would treat our animals like this! I will be the first one to stand up and tell you IT IS NOT EASY adopting children out of foster care. There are MANY issues you have to deal with, that even with training, you will sometimes feel like you have taken on more than you can possibly handle. Love is not all the children need. That is a romantic ideal, but not the truth. They need love, consistency, tolerance, understanding, sometimes professional guidance, and a TON of patience from their foster/adoptive parents. I will even admit to throwing my hands up, falling on my bed, and sobbing. The feeling of "will I ever get to this child?" or "what else can I do to help them?". As a foster/adoptive parent you feel like no one really understands. Family or friends can't understand that you can't carry my child around like a normal toddler because if you do, when we go home they will proceed to suck there thumb and regress on potty training like they are a baby again. Or, no, we can't attend that function because our children had bio family visits today and they are completely out of control and we need family time to help them start functioning correctly again. Saying all this, YES IT IS HARD, but it is possible. I don't know all the personal details of Harris and his family, but they have not been through any more or less than all the other families that taken "difficult" children in. This is a travesty and I would hope that Arkansas will open it's eyes to see that this should be illegal and prosecutable to the fullest extent of the law. If DHS has the safety of the children in mind, this needs to be changed. And as a side note, I am the mother to a child that was abandoned by two families, much in this way. She had issues they felt were not worth dealing with. She has taken a LOT of affirmation to the fact that she is worthy, loved, and valuable. That is something we will be working on for years. I can't imagine the battles these two precious girls will face in this abandonment. May God have mercy on the souls of men that have so lightly regarded the precious human life. Harris, shame on you and your wife.
