A Labor of Love

Have you ever wondered what a Colombian Foster Mother is paid each month? I have, and guess what they are getting a raise. This week ICBF announced that their 5, 429 foster mothers, who were not paid anything for their labor (just a small subsidy to pay for the child's needs), will be paid the grand amount of $40,000 -$50,000 pesos -- this is about US$20 a month for their work.

Definitely a labor of love and not a money making venture!
