Uh, newborn babies free for adoption almost never go to foster care, they are adopted at birth.

Hi David. Here is the article I read with that particular prison stat. It sites research done by Arrow Child and Family Ministries, but I can’t find their original research. I actually agree with you that this figure is most likely inflated, and there is a lot of conflicting information on this figure. Regardless, it’s not really the point of the essay. I disagree with most of your other points, and I’ve linked many sources in the article that serve as my response. Thank you for fostering and thanks for reading. http://amarillo.com/news/local-news/2012-06-24/what-comes-next
