In a recent viral TikTok video by ihopecorez, a foster mother is seen clearly favoring her naturally born child, Ava, over her adopted son, Caleb, during lunch at a bustling restaurant. The video begins with the mother announcing to Caleb that he has a budget of four dollars for lunch, while Ava is told she can order whatever she wants. The scene is set in a busy restaurant, where an observant woman and her mother are overhearing the conversation.

As Caleb requests to be excused to use the bathroom, a startling conversation unfolds. The foster mother reveals to her companion that she receives a little over $700 for fostering Caleb. She states that by keeping his meal under four dollars, they can allocate the remaining funds for their own desires, potentially even getting an iPad.

Caleb, unaware of this financial scheming, returns and politely asks for a hamburger. The mother denies his request, citing the budget constraint. However, a compassionate diner overhearing the conversation offers to pay for whatever Caleb wants, including his desired hamburger and even a milkshake. The foster mother reluctantly agrees, and Caleb is finally treated to the meal he wants.

The video concludes with the kind diner asking for Caleb's name and phone number, hinting at the possibility of further support or intervention.

This video has struck a chord with viewers, highlighting the often unseen struggles and unfair treatment faced by foster children. Watch the full video on TikTok to witness the touching intervention and reflect on the importance of treating all children with equal love and respect.
