It is abandonment for a small child.
A synonym of being unloved.
I have extraordinary foster families around. And I say this in admiration,and in no way mean to put those families into question
This is pretty common knowledge. A child needs his/her parents and siblings first and foremost. And to see them,and keep in touch with their family.
And reuniting them whenever possible is what is looked for.
And no,Theo,not everything is a" loophole" for nothing.
. I know a few cases here were parents left everything behind in complicated crime and gang abundant environments,and came miles apart to a rural area to start again.
It would surprise you the normalcy with which some children tell how a father,or a brother or somebody in the neighbourhood has been killed.
In all fairness too,they have come.to areas with a chance of affordable housing and a job…here,in rural areas where I also move about. And they look for work,and keep their teens busy ,studying,working,and doing sports close by. Simple family life.
I do not have the source here right now,but I read that families from Honduras and Guatemala are also moving to Panama and ( if I am not mistaken,Costa Rica).
Not everyone is trying to work a loophole,but to survive and give their kids a decent life. Most are excluded. And children pay a very high , and unfair price.
