It is by nature the birthright of all children that they should have the opportunity to a benevolent and family environment in which to develop and mature. When this right is impaired, it is the duty of all neighbors to bring to bear all the resources available to remedy the causes and detrimental results of that impairment. Brought tighter by our common commitment to help all children enjoy the benefits of a loving and caring family and to promote the ideals of the individual in a free society, we, the foster parents of the state of Illinois, do hereby establish and ordain these by-laws.
