Foster Children

Dear Editor,
The world has reacted with frenzy over the plight of about 2,000 children separated from their parents after illegally entering the USA. My heart goes out to those children and families.
However, I wonder what has to happen right here in our own backyard to make people aware of the much worse situation we allow and support for children in our foster care system.
The 2011 Statistics Canada Census put their numbers at 47,885. The children entering and exiting the system are changing daily so the statistics totally underrepresents the innumerable youngsters being impacted over the years.
