Soapbox: Botox Mom Hoax and Foster Care Month
This is Foster Care Month. Why can't just one journalist take this sad instance as an opportunity to do a story about the crucial safety net that foster families provide in a time of such crisis for children? Why can't they do a story about the impact of relocating on foster children so that classmates and friends are more sympathetic and less bullying to a foster child in their schoolroom? Why can't they talk about the support systems needed that are being cut right and left in the city and state budget crises that are happening all across the country?
