Consider Adopting the Whole Family

I feel that retired men of my age group who have already successfully raised their families would be the best solution to unifying many of our dysfunctional black families, by adoption the whole family, instead of breaking up families and spreading the children around into foster care.

I feel, what I and other fathers have to offer a woman raising her children alone, would benefit and make a difference in their lives.

Today, I wouldn't have a problem to help raising someone's family with the same assistance that the system offers to foster care providers.

To think that a woman and her children wouldn't become attached to the man helping them is naive; then again, to think that a man would commit himself to a woman and she have a lover would never work, there lies a dilemma.

So basically, by adopting the whole family keeping them together helping the mother and her children catch themselves, like a father, when the family is able to go it alone, you see them off with your well wishes.
