Last night there was a post (that's now gone) about a lady who is on PA SNAP benefits. Now I do not care about the post but a comment got me thinking. Someone had commented about the fact that this women adopted her child seemingly when she was getting assistance. Now this wasn't the case as the adoption supposedly happened before the rough times but this sparked my interest.
I am a CPS worker for my state and see the hundreds of kids just in my office awaiting adoption. Most will not find permanent homes before 18 :(. Anyway if there is a family that needs SNAP support that's can otherwise provide a great home for a child should someone be appalled at this?
Now I'm not speaking in that ladies specific situation at all. But in Fostwr care we the tax payer pay so much for them to be there. When they get adopted through the system the child and adoptive family still get a monthly stipend to care for the child but it isn't anywhere near the cost of keeping them in fostercare.
** and I'm sorry I know people are sick of PA posts but I, personally have never come across this beforehand here.
So if they needed extra SNAP support is this a bad thing? I just want opinions.
Edit.. Not to fuel the fire but FYI in my state it is perfectly acceptable to be on limited assistance and adopt or be a foster parent.
