Inside a mother’s womb “Life” is created in darkness.
The formation is simple, in/externally, equal in nature and development.
The ONLY difference between “Lives” is the sexual organ that controls equity.
As “Life’ enters the world Liberation is improbable to many.

Children conceived and born into the Foster Care System (aka Child Welfare) lives are not of their own. Their lives are controlled by the fate of the systems in which they are born and to whom, their parents. Equality, Equity, Liberation, and fate do not exist but exist as a commodity investment for economic growth. The investment protects the interest of its investors (aka politicians), which is governed by the foster care system’s policies and procedures to shape and condition “Life.” Life’s conditioning teaches learned helplessness and system dependency graduating “Life” from one system to another. For instance, the ideology of “Oppression” is the breaking of self emotionally, mentally, and physically. The incompetencies, worthless, and inferiority are mirrored in the systems in which they function education, employment, and housing. The inferiority is perpetuated by their lived experiences of the “mistreatment interpersonally from members of the dominant group, and they eventually come to internalize the negative messages about themselves.”
Equality is the separation and categorization of individuals and families based on race and gender. The distribution of resources and opportunities is no longer based on equality, but individual competency and worth. For instance, if, a young mother and/or father has a history of child welfare involvement automatically child welfare visits the home to assess whether the parents are capable of meeting the needs of the child(ren).
The assessment is designed to reinforce the “breaking of self” triggering interpersonal trauma (e.g. domestic and community violence, poor health, and mental and behavioral health) and impulsive behaviors. To make matters worse it is the mother’s fate that is charged against her because of her race and gender, not the father. The institution’s power and limited protection from the child’s father and community break “Life” at surrendering to system dependency.
Equity reverses the roles of the father and mother’s relationship because the system’s policies use the mother’s last name, not the father as a means of identifying and creating a family’s profile. Child welfare services the distribution of resources and opportunities are determined by the mother’s life history, system compliance, and her behavior. Subsequently, it is the core principle of oppression the “breaking” of the individual that uses images and acts to break the natural psychological and physical being called “Life.” The use of public images, stigmatization, and stereotypes of black males not present in the home exacerbated by community violence naturally affects one’s psyche triggering intergenerational trauma, poor impulse control, and helplessness. Evidently, Life is no longer just or equal to the individual or family. The inequities against children and families exacerbated by systems’ policies and procedures prevent the capacity for individual growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.
“Life” for children conceived and born in Foster Care is shattered when the world no longer is able to distinguish between animals and plants from human beings. The cry to liberate “Life” to those oppressed especially black and brown children is a dream to many “that one day even the state ... sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice” (Martin Luther King, Jr, “I Have a Dream, 28 August 1963).
And, this my friend is my another mother’s testimony!!
