      No problem on this end.

      I’ve mentioned often that I have four adopted siblings, most of whom weren’t voluntarily surrendered. My folks have been foster parents for 47 years having hosted well over 400 kids and currently have been caring for an infant the past few months. My opinion comes from experiencing how things are, not how I think things should be.

        Me to, my Mother (an R.N.) was a temporary child care plus she sheltered pregnant women in the '50's through to '60's when unwed women had a negative Social stigma.

          i don’t have a good answer if i did I would share it with everyone.

          I was poor as a child at times. And I guess it don’t agree with me.

            Ike Eisenhower once said he grew up poor, but he didn't know it at the time.

                We were so poor as kids that we used to play cops and robbers with real cops.
                Our only toy was a dead cat, and we had to share it.

                      I'd say your folks have done more good than I could hope for in 50 life times.

                        Thank you. They’re a local legend of sorts, I honestly don’t know when they’ll hang it up. Just who they are.
