     Slam the Gavel welcomes back Laura Thomason from Missouri to the podcast. She was last on Season 2, Episode 133 where the talked about counseling and being an Advocate for at risk youth suffering through the Foster Care System.
     Laura gave updates to her case where the grandchildren are now back in the family for well over a year. We talked about Laura completing her Master's Degree in Science and Human Services, specializing in Community and Social Services. 
   Children have gone missing in Missouri, approximately 987 all in one year noted 10/2021 and only 34% were reported missing. Laura explained that there is no one trained to deal with children that have been trafficked and other problems within the foster care system along with the Title IV-E incentives. There are price tags on children's heads and bonuses to be had when there are adoptions. Funding comes  per head, per child as well as a tax cut if adopted out of foster care. They have made it easier to adopt out of foster care, even the Governor of Missouri is a foster parent.
    "It's complicated, it is a mess," Laura explains, "and the average person doesn't know what goes on or doesn't want to know to ease the mental distress." Laura encourages parents to know their state's laws, stand your ground, know your rights.
