    Long Ago

    Its been a long long time ago but the loneliness and fear from my childhood is something i can still feel when I think about it.  I was the most tormented kid I have seen.  It still has repercussions even to this day. For the last 28 years I have been a foster parent...

    I Wish

    Children don't choose to come into the world. They are defenseless and dependent on adults in every way. I believe it is the job of parents to provide a safe, healthy, happy home to their children. I feel so horrible for the children in the world who grow up in orphanages and...

    There Was None...

    When I was a child, there was no happiness. I don't hardly remember a day when I was happy the whole day without feeling some sort of depression. No child deserves that.

    No Fools

    Children live on instinct, that is all they’ve got. They haven’t trained in bullshit, like the adults with a lot. You can never force a child to trust you if it can’t. They don’t use your tactics, they don’t see things at a slant. ...

    I Think Every Child Deserves A Happy Childhood

    Every Child needs a happy childhood. For me, being bullied and teased, has made me weak as a teenager. People still is mean to me and it bothers me because it reminds me of my past. If a child is happy from the beginning, they may be happy as an adult. Children learn to...

    Every Kid Should Have It, And Remember It

    I personally don't recall much from age 10-ish down. There are times where my grandma would be telling us about things she use to do with me and my cousins and I would be the only one who doesn't remember. I've been told that some people just don't remember or they simple don't...

    Something I Never Had

     I want every child to have the happy childhood that I never had.  I want them to keep their innocence and carefree nature. However, I do not want them to be sheltered.  I do not want any child to end up like me because of a miserable childhood.

    Mine Was Stolen.

    Things happened to me that ruined my childhood and eventually ruined me. I don't want to see people go through what I have gone through. I realize that I can't make the world perfect, but I'm going to make a diffrence and, hopefully, save lives. It's loud and here I go.

    The Most Obvious

    I've seen many children, sometimes in devastated countries.  When poverty was the rule, the people, especially the children were laughing!  This kind of precious inner joy is awesome and almost sacred.It's not a matter of giving in or spoil a kid.  That's the worst...
