I wish I could adopt children who are neglected by their parents right at this moment.
I cant help but be upset when I hear about a 3 year old baby thats been neglected and is so hungry that he wakes up to walk to the kitchen to get a loaf of bread and a packet of hot chocolate, and then is found by an in-home nurse with poo all over him because his mother is unfit to take care of him.
My little cousin doesnt deserve this at all. Or my other cousins for that matter. They may be bad as hell, but they dont deserve that kind of life to be brought up in. I wish I could do something to help, but that part of the family has pretty much burned their bridge between us and reaching our hand out to them most of the time gets our selves burned. Many of the people surrounding them are so negative not many people can expand their perspectives outside of that town. I cant help my adult relatives b/c they are the ones that have made their decision, but for my younger cousins? being around adults like that is only going to continue the viscous cycle and I really dont want my cousins to grow up like that. Especially my baby cousin. He doesnt deserve this. No one in the world deserves this. Part of me wishes I could take care of him, despite the fact that I am only 19 and I dont work full-time, or have a place of my own. But I wouldnt let him sit in a destructive home were that is the main component for a child’s development. (I know I know, Im way over my head on this.)
Idk, this hits close to home. Ive heard about my peers being exposed to abusive and negligent parents and Ive always had empathy for them b/c no one deserves to be raised that way, but for my own family to be growning up like that? I cant help but be upset. More like PISSED. I wish so badly that I could do something about it, but all I can do is pray for them.
