Casting Call for Foster Care Reality TV
F'real?!? "Dramatic?!?" Me?!? I am soooooo not "dramatic!!!" (Hmmm... Upon reviewing all of the exclamation marks in that statement, they might have a wee bit of a point there...) Anyway...
So I began pondering the possibility of my own reality show, and it occurred to me that since entering the world of Foster/Adopt Land, I might be onto something! Maybe something like "Teen Mom" where the series follows four different foster families along with the children's birth families... Now that would make for some interesting television! Trust me. You haven't experienced the full impact of "Jerry Springer" until you've lived in the world of foster care for a few years. I've experienced and heard of some doozies over the past four years... with stories involving foster families as well as birth families! Just imagine the possibilities!!!
I think I just might put out a casting call for my new series. (I haven't thought of a name for it yet, so feel free to post your title ideas. :-) Think your family might be a good candidate for the hypothetical show? Share away! We might have hit the jackpot here! :-)
