I just got back from a call to find the hard working officers I supervise in the station. They were there with 4 children, waiting to be picked up for foster homes. Mom was in custody for domestic violence. The youngest was 3 months old. Cute as a button. THEN I find out that the 3-month-old is being taken from --- you guessed it --- a FOSTER mom. In other words, on to mom number 3 at only 3 months old. And we wonder why people grow up to be criminals. I'll remember that little smile for a while. Adorable. Tragic.
