A "Mother" gives Love, not Birth: In honour of Mother's Day, which of the these is True?
Each year there are approximately 4 million births in the U.S. vs. only 2.4 million deaths
There are 463,000 children just in the U.S. foster care system; many of whom are available for adoption.
More children become available for adoption each year than are adopted.
Children often wait five years or more to be adopted., move three or more times in foster care and often are separated from siblings.
The average age of children waiting for adoption is eight years old.
Each year, one in five children (29,516 in 2008) who are available for adoption turn 18 and leave the foster care system without a family
Adopting from foster care is AFORDABLE & TIMELY (as opposed to FERTILITY TREATMENTS) . . . Most child welfare agencies cover the costs of home studies and court fees, and provide post-adoption subsidies. Thousands of employers offer financial reimbursement and paid leave for employees who adopt and Federal and/or state adoption tax credits are available to most families.
Every child is adoptable. Many children in foster care have special needs. All of them deserve the chance to grow up in a safe, loving, permanent home. Support and other post-adoption resources are available.
Adopting from foster care is permanent. Once a child is adopted out of foster care, the birth parents cannot attempt to claim them or fight in court for their return. A family formed through foster care adoption is forever.
According to a National Adoption Attitudes Survey commissioned by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, 63 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of adoption and 78 percent think more should be done to encourage adoption.
Nearly 40 percent of American adults, or 81.5 million people, have considered adopting a child, according to the National Adoption Attitudes Survey. If just one in 500 of these adults adopted, every waiting child in foster care would have a permanent family.
It is a scientific & medical fact that the risk of health issues and/or mortalithy for the mother & birth defects and/or mortality for the baby/babies increases exponentially every year over the age of 35 , , , Even more so if Fertility Treatments are invoved!
All of the Above are True

Poaching is the Number One threat to the Conservation of the Rhino
Man is the Rhino’s only Predator
Shooting a Rhino is the most common killing practice used by Poachers.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo has the worst poaching pressures in Africa. Scientists believe it is possible that the entire population has now been wiped out there.
If Poaching does not stop, ALL Species of Rhino will be Extinct in the Wild within the next 5-10 Years!

In honour of World Day Against Child Labour (6/12/10), I'd like to address Child Abuse in this weeks Quiz: Which of the following is True? . . .
In the last 10 years, an average of about 900,000 children are abused in the U.S. alone each year!
The incidence of abuse & neglect among children with disabilities is twice as high as it is among average children.
Parental substance abuse is a factor in at least 70 percent of all reported cases of child maltreatment.
A major reason children enter foster care is abuse & neglect associated with parental alcohol or drug abuse.
Almost 80 percent of perpetrators of child abuse are parents and about 7 percent are usually other relatives.
In 2005, an estimated 1,460 children died as a result of abuse or neglect.
Almost three times as many children are maltreated as are reported to Child Protective Services agencies.
Animal Abuse, Child Abuse, Domestic Violence & ALL Forms of Violence are directly related!
Reporting Animal Abuse cases can help prevent Child Abuse & Other Forms of Violence.
