DO NOT RUSH PLACING CHILDREN IN ADOPTIVE ETC. CARE----DANGERS IN DOING SO
 

Much care and thought should go into placement of adoptive etc. children.  Quick thoughtless placement is no real placement at all.  Many concerns fall in line when assisting our needy children with kind, loving, and mentally equiped adults who should be able to handle each child's specific and various backgrounds.  I repeat------a hasty decision could be putting this group of children in mental/physical dangers.  Please consider all aspects before placing a child.   Many confusions could be avoided when placements are implemented in a proper fashion.
