Description

The purpose of the article was to find a foster-parent for a little girl and her brother. Some information about their background is given. As this type of article was not uncommon, it is likely that the Child Welfare Department hoped that this story would interest people in becoming foster-parents generally, not just for the children in the article. In the early twenty-first century, newspaper articles and advertisements continue to be used to encourage people to become foster-carers, but much more care is taken to protect the children's identities.
