Lifetouch Reinforces One Child Polcy

One-child-policyAs the new school year begins, the nation’s main school photography company reiterated its one child policy. According to an official statement from the Peoples Republic of Lifetouch, “Families can have any number of children, as long as that number is one. It is easier to change the nation than to make our computer systems recognize that families have more than one child.” Again this year, Lifetouch will forbid parents from combining photos of multiple children in a single package or gift item, stating defiantly that “…such practice would require us to modernize our infrastructure, and we will not do that.” In conjunction with this policy, Lifetouch is distributing adoption pamphlets with all school photos so that families can place their second child up for adoption.
