     All over the United States many people are affected by drugs. A lot of these people are addicted and can’t get enough. Drug abuse doesn't only increase the risk of your health it also can increase the foster care agency if you have children.

    

According to The Wall Street Journal, Steve and Fawn Kippenberg said, “They hit many lows in their decade-long battle with pain-pill and heroin addiction.” They have been expelled from just about all of their homes. But, nothing in the whole wide world was worse than getting their three young children taken away from them. The three kids were taken into custody because of safety concerns and were gone for a few months so that their parents could get cleaned of drugs.

     After a long year of recovering the parents regained custody of their three children just in time for the holidays.
