I lost the original post and can’t remember all the words. So, I’m writing a summary from what I can remember.
Where Would The World Be Without Mothers?
The world would be up the creek without a paddle if all the mothers were to suddenly disappear. The world would turn into a scary scene from a dystopia novel, except it would be real.
And before anyone say anything about their abusive mother. I’m not saying she was or she wasn’t abusive. I was not there. So, I can not say. But I do know she didn’t have to keep you. Dads abandons children all the time. She could have just left you under a complex stairs, in a urine soak hallway, at a church or fire department.
Because raising a child is the toughest thing you will ever do.
Some probably say they wish she had left them somewhere. No, you don’t, as bad as she was when you were growing. An orphanage would have been much worst. 98% of children in orphanages are never adopted. You simply hear about the success stories. No one want to talk about the children who can’t socialize for they have been neglected for years. Remembers these workers are not those children kinsmen. Some may be nice but to most it’s a job, not relationship.
Only 2% of the children in orphanages are adopted. That means had your mother left you you would have spent the next 18 years in a place where you couldn’t do as you please. A place you can not go back to if life became hard.
The Child Trend studies suggest that “about 2% of the U.S. child population is adopted, either from foster care or through private domestic or international adoption
Historically, an orphanage is a residential institution, or group home, devoted to the care of orphans and other children who were separated from their biological families
While working as an intern for social work I heard the supervisor of one of the Orphanage says. “A bad mother is better than no mother.”
