Let’s Talk About Sex With Foster Youth

Whether extended family or foster parents, there is no uniformity in training on how caretakers should address sex with youth who grow up in foster care. No one is responsible for teaching these teens about safe sex practices, healthy relationships, and the value of love.  This lack of comprehensive sexual education for youth in foster care has a significant correlation with high pregnancy rates and contraction of sexually transmitted diseases, among many other negative outcomes.

In response to this, Fostering Media Connections presents, “Let’s Talk About Sex with Foster Youth,” a series of

Statistics for the Luke's Army Support Website in 2012

on Sun, 12/09/2012 - 11:04

In this image, we take a look back over the last year on lukesarmy.com....

The last month of the old lukesarmy.com website, there were 4400 unique visitors to the site, in Jan 2012. It took me three months (May 2012) after shutting the site down and rebuilding it, to once again reach that figure.

In june unique visitors to the site reached 6102, and the site has not dipped below 6000 unique visitors since, with 7339 unique visitors in Nov 2012 just gone.

The site had just over 172 000 page views over the last year, and the site was down for two or three months of this year.

International adoptions plummet globally

on Sat, 05/19/2012 - 14:08

HANOI, Vietnam — The number of international adoptions has plummeted to its lowest point in 15 years.

Some adoption advocates argue that the decrease also is linked to strict

Crimes Against Fathers Women's Opportunity to Assist

I believed the best way to set up a site for women who wished to stand up against crimes against fathers is to make it a sub portal of the Crimes Against Fathers sites rather than to make it an entirely separate site.

My reasoning for this is as follows.

CAF (Crimes Against Fathers) is the global resource to gain remedy for crimes against fathers. Women are WELCOME to a womens section.

This makes it clear what the women at the site stand for…..the remedy of crimes against fathers. Other sites might come later.

It makes the point that
