JEFFERSON CITY – The number of kids in need is growing, according to the only foster care and adoption association in central Missouri.
Central Missouri Foster Care and Adoption Association will host its 10th Annual Gala Thursday to support children in foster care, adoption or kinship care.
President and CEO of CMFCAA DeAnna Alonso said 2018 is the most children in need she has seen since they opened a decade ago, mainly because of the opioid crisis.
“We see more kids coming into care because of the substance use issues that are connected to opioids,” said Alonso. “Also because of poverty rates and neglect.”
According to CMFCAA, they have helped 1,400 children in central Missouri receive foster care. About 15,000 total children are in foster care in the entire state.

However, the traditional concept of the “self” and the “body” can remain problematic, at least under some social classes and in some social media and even some mainstream culture. Because of this, the traditional social view of the self has become an almost non-recognizable concept for many Westerners.
The meaning of the term self may also be understood as a social concept rooted in the common experience of physical self-transcendence, or of physical being embodied by “self.” Many Westerners use the term self in this context and in different contexts. The definitions generally include both physical and mental self-existence; however, the concept of self can also mean both physical and mental.
For example, although it is not always clear how to relate how to describe the term “body” to “self,” most of the terminology used in media depictions of the term is similar to how people associate physical and mental selves. However, by its very nature, this terminology does tend to overlap with the terminology used to describe the “mummy” or “baby sister” and also similar to what is often used to define a person who describes himself as a “body-related person.”
