Nancy’s Thoughts About War
Nancy prefers peace. But she will fight for children.
She is an adoptive mom, a psychotherapist, a trainer and a writer. Our world is made better by Nancy’s wisdom. Here is a peek into her opinions about war.
“More than half million children live in foster care in the United States. Most are there because of a personal war of abuse and/or neglect. No twenty-four hour coverage by embedded journalists chronicles their story. No president promises them a quick end to their plight; no congress rallies around their need with emergency allocations. The fight against terrorism does not extend to the personal, private terror of vulnerable children.
What if, just once, our leaders directed their passionate patriotism toward a pre-emptive strike against the evil axis of poverty, neglect, violence and racism? What if it was a national imperative that all children lived in safe homes…
Now there’s one war I could support.”
In an article for Adoptive Families magazine, Nancy offers some useful suggestions for parents as they talk with their children’s teachers about adoption.
