I have a passion for helping others. Nothing makes me feel happier and more fulfilled than improving someone’s life. If I could make one lasting impact on this earth I would work toward developing a program that educates and also requires first time parents to meet certain standards of care skills prior to allowing them to walk out of the hospital with a newborn baby. No one is looking out for these children when they are most vulnerable. When parents fail to meet their obligations for caring for the infant or child, we intercede and relocate the child if that is deemed necessary. I’m concerned, however, about the damage to that young life that has already happened up to that point. How much better would it be if we trained our future parents instead of leaving them on their own until they fail? I have two children. I know how hard it is to be a new parent. Many new parents are ill-prepared and do not have a strong network of family to guide them and teach them how to properly care for an infant. Having a child is so much more than just feeding and changing diapers. So much more. Proactive teaching and guiding would, in my opinion, benefit the lives of many children and make happier families. The positive impact of that would pass on down through generations and improve the very fabric of our society. A re-birthing of our nation, you might say.
