ADVOCACY FOR CHILDREN DAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS, EARLY CARE AND EDUCATION PROFESSIONALS, AND OTHERS FROM ACROSS THE STATE TO STAND UP AND RAISE THEIR VOICE FOR CHILDREN.
May had her first child while living as a state ward in a group home when she was 16 and her second child when she was 18 before aging out of foster care.
Her mother was 17 when May was born.
Her grandmother was even younger when May’s mother was born. How old will her daughter be when she has her first baby?
Abused children suffer traumas that last forever and leave a child feeling devoid of love with an emotional void that cannot be filled by social workers, teachers or kind foster parents.
All girls want love in their life. A baby is love. The difference between that poor child and a preteen mom with no parenting skills, a drug problem and a violent boyfriend is about 8 years.
