I’d like to acknowledge the work of Michael Petit, the president of Every Child Matters. He served as the state of Maine’s human services commissioner, and as deputy of the Child Welfare League of America.

I beg you, dear parents, cherish your children and have them suffer NO MORE. (Click here for more.)
