~ Children Want Homes ~
There is a seven year old, brown eyed, energetic youngster who is most
anxious for a home. He is bubbling over with pep and ought to be in a
home where there is plenty of yard so that he may romp to his heart’s
content and be good and glad to sleep when night comes.
Then there is an eight year old boy who is the quiet peaceable type,
who just wants a home where he will be e loved and in return he will
adore some kind foster parents.
That isn’t all, because there is also a thirteen year old Irish lad who
has a smile that is contagious. He looks Irish and is proud of it. He
doesn’t want to be petted and “fussed over: but he likes to have people
“notice him” and “pleasant”. Some family with a grown son who has made
good will be the place for this lad. He is anxious to be as “good as
the other fellow.”
Oh, yes, there are some girls too, and there are groups such as a
brother and sister, two brothers, three little sisters, and sometimes
even tiny babies.
If you have raised a family and now that they are all grown wish there
was a youngster in the house again, quit wishing.
Or if you are thinking of a child whom you had but a short time and
then lost, don’t you think it would be good for both you and some
homeless child to meet.
Or perhaps even there have never been children in your home. What an
opportunity to make some unfortunate child happy.
The Board of Children’s Guardians 37 Municipal Courts Building St.
Louis, Mo., will be very glad to meet you. If you will write to us one
of the Board’s visitors will call on you at your home.
In some cases the Board will pay a [s]um sufficient to offset the
wants real homes for these children where they will be treated with
love and affection and as members of the family.
