Welcome Ms. Tonya Springer…

Tonya Springer

I am happy to report that my dear friend, Tonya Springer, will become my first guest blogger at SpiritsonFire. Tonya will be adding, what I believe to be, a sort of spiritual balance to this, our (yours and mine) blog. What my family and friends endured is something that is very difficult to just put aside as one would some old clothing. So I realize I may at times seem one-sided. But hey, you can’t blame me; and, I am working on it.

But in staying true to the original purpose of this blog, as I share my opinions on the activities of child welfare organizations and workers I cannot forget that there are also very good people embedded in the same system that I distrust. Also, I have to account for the children and families that are not only seeking information about what happens in the system, but are also looking for some spiritual comfort and reflection on what is going on in this mad world overall.

I think Tonya is the perfect person to help me (us) bring some of those important elements to this blog so that it doesn’t become just some hateful reflection of what is going on with the child welfare system according to muah and those folks whose stories I share.

Ultimately, as I have repeatedly said, I’d like to see both sides work together in reforming this broken system. Resistence does seem to come mostly from “the system”, but it is a New Year and anything can happen.

Here’s hoping 2011 is the year of “Child Welfare Reform” along with some human-spiritual rebirth! Alas, such high aspirations.

Won’t you help us attain them?

God bless,

LMo.
