I myself am a parent that constantly worries about my son that is in foster care, and there really is something terribly wrong with the agencies.I am suffering from PTSD that has escallated to Gerneralized Anxiety,and was Autistic as a child because I was once in the same shoes that my son is currently in.My son is ten months old today,May 11,2008.My greatest concerns are for my sons mental,emotional,and neurological health,at 5 months old he was diagnosed with Seperation Anxiety,and he has begun showing signs of Autism.He is too young to take any medication for this.I have gone beyond proving to the agency that I am a mature,and responsible mother to my son,and fully capable of taking care of him on a 24/7 basis.The agency works backwards from how it should run.The agency,system,and courts bend over backwards for Drug Addicts to get their kids back into their care.I don't fit that criteria,so they are harder on me. Nobody wants to adopt a child that is a drug baby,so the drug parents get their kids back.While I am healthy, and my children are healthy,the agency and the courts deem me an unfit mother because I don't have a history of drug addiction,adopting families always hope and pray to adopt perfectly healthy babies like my son,but one must consider the effect that this all is having on the children, and the pain and confusion that they are going through.My name is Yvonne,my sons name is Damion.I have shed so many tears over all that he is going through,and the abuse that he is enduring at the hands of the agency and te courts.(tears)Please pray for myself and my son,that justice is served and that the truth shall prevail.Thankyou for posting this prayer heading.Please pray for us, and please post prayers,so that two or more may gather,and may join in one accord.I am not the one that created this prayer page, I merely wrote this legthy request. I look forward to reading posted prayers, so that I will know what to pray. I would like to see other parents that are going through the same thing, post their comments and prayer requests too. I am requesting prayers for my son and myself,as well as for all the other parents and children that are suffering this terrible situation, and are suffering along wth myself and with my son.I was looking all over Beliefnet for a prayer request page and this is the closest thing that I could find.Whoever created this page, Thankyou so much !
