"There are two reasons why we publish this Bulletin at this time. First, there are evidences that all good citizens need to be alert to the problems of underprivileged children, and the children of broken families, and those whose parents are proceeding through the Divorce Courts (so numerous, unhappily, today). .... Secondly, clergy are constantly being asked for advice concerning problem children, and constantly being asked about children for adoption. We ask ourselves such questions as these. `What should the clergyman do about the problem of underprivileged children ? -- children of cruel or neglectful parents ? -- the children affected by divorce proceedings ?' `What is the most helpful role of the clergyman in adoption proceedings ?' `What can he advise about children of unmarried mothers ?' `How best can he help the Child-Caring Agencies with information and advice ? -- how much responsibility can he assume in making decisions ? -- may he better consult with Social workers and agents of the Children's Aid ?' For these two chief reasons we publish this Bulletin. We believe it will be of help. Dr. Charlotte Whitten has written the Article specially for the Bulletin. No person in Canada is better fitted to advise clergy and other interested citizens on this most important matter." -- Foreword.
