While I do agree we do need orphanages, I disagree with the reasons behind taking children from their homes. We also need GOOD orphanages with good people in them. The issue is that people want kids to be taken from bad situations, but then they forget about the kids leaving them in the hands of predators and other people who should not be in charge of a lizard let alone an abuses child. If our government can’t do any better than take kids and place them with complete (but approved) strangers for extended periods, then the system is broken. Hotels are not orphanages. I was in an orphanage, and let me tell you, it is NOT a hotel or a boarding school.
