According to new statistics Alabama families set a record for adopting children from Foster Care.
A record number of children from Alabama’s foster care system found permanent homes during the 2018 fiscal year, Gov. Kay Ivey announced today.
There were 710 foster children adopted during the year that ended Sept. 30, up from 509 in fiscal year 2017 and 502 in 2016. The previous record was 676 foster children adopted in fiscal year 2009, according to the Alabama Department of Human Resources, which oversees the foster care system.
“It sends a strong, wonderful message to all the foster care children in our state,” Ivey said at a news conference at the Capitol, where she posed for photos with children and their families.
There are about 6,375 children in foster care in Alabama. DHR Commissioner Nancy Buckner said about 70 percent of foster children return to their biological families.
“But those that don’t, they need their own loving caring, permanent family and that’s what it’s all about,” Buckner said.
It is quite funny to see every narrative the left has completely blow up in there faces. Since the signing of there Pro-Life Bill, the left has attacked residents of Alabama as backward and just overall horrible. They claimed they don’t care about children they just care about controlling women. That is clearly not true but I doubt any of the Hollywood elite will be praising these people.
