First, read this. . .

Link to story

NOW tell me why my wife & I cannot adopt? Tell me why we need to be near millionaires to take care of a child that SOME people get to have for FREE!?!?!?!?!?!  (FYI, AND yes, IF someone YOU know is looking to adopt away their child, we would not mind to hear about it. But, we are NOT Angelina and Brad NOR are we Oprah, we are just to 'regular' folk that make 'regular' money but have an 'irregular' amount of love for ANY child that needs it! And by 'any child' we actually think there are enough children right here in THIS country that could use the love without traveling overseas to find one!!!)

Human being can be so HORRIBLE sometimes I wish we could just dissasociate ourselves from some of them.... you don't even want to be classified as being the same species as someone who would do that to their own child OR ANYone for that matter.

I wish I could remember what show or movie I was watching just recently... or just happened to "click" in at the moment.  In the scene,  some teen was talking about his father.  The line I heard was something like "You need to have a license to drive a car, to own a car, or even to own a dog.... but they will let any SOB become a father."  That line really made an impression on me - it is SO true and SO sad.

That is sad.

 

Besides the emotional scarring, and being raised with low-level street values, the daughter could have been, or already is, infected with all kinds of diseases before she even turns 10. 

 

I would suggest that IQ and moral values test be required to become parents, or a parent... but then the human race would probably become an endangered species within the next 100 years.

 

However, I do think that adoption agencies should put more weight in the qualification process for those with good hearts and moral values rather than in how much money the prospective parents have in their bank account.

 

Clearly, some people, who do not need to adopt because they can breed like rabbits, are not good parents. Money is not the most important aspect in raising good kids. Strong love, good values, and quality care are what count the most.

The really sad thing is there are so many parents out there who should have had to pass a test before they had children.  And the ones who really want children have to prove themselves and jump through hoops to get one.  There's something wrong with the logic here.

It's not just the trailer trash that should be tested. And obviously the stinking rich have their own set of problems. Everyone should be tested.
I recall when I went to a niece's christening. My sis-in-law had a friend who had a little boy about 4 years of age. This woman was to-doing over the baby like crazy and when her son wanted to climb in her lap she told him "No, you're bad." Folks, we had been in that house for several hours and that little boy hadn't done anything bad. In fact he was unusually quiet for a boy his age. It hurt me to see this woman ignore her son in favor of another woman's baby.

Kinda reminds me of one of my cousins kids. We were at a family get together a few years back and this very young child, I think he was around three or four, kept getting into everything! Well, this is something an under supervised child might do, so, MY mother kept telling him what NOT to touch and where NOT to go, meanwhile HIS mother was busy talking to other family members, unconcerned about what her son was getting into. Finally, when the little angel nearly pulled a large vase over onto his head (after being told to stay away by me, my mom AND my sister) his mother looks over (he started cryig when we raised our voices towards him) and says to us, 'He is JUST a child, he isn't hurting anything' My mother got that famous look in her eye (a kinda cold, don't mess with me look, that could make water run right back up and back behind the dam!) told her, well then ACT like his MOTHER and control your child before he kills himself'

After a few seconds of silence (it really felt like hours, but it probably was just a few seconds), she gathered up her son, noticed the disaper needed changing (or so she said) and they left the room. We didn't see them for a few minutes when her husband (my cousin) came out and informed us they were leaving.

I feel bad for that child; he isn't being brought up correctly and his parents, BOTH of them, seem to be happy to let ANYONE else take care of watching him as long as they do NOT bother them.

How sad, and this is a part of MY family.

I get really, REALLY tired of IRRESPONSIBLE parents that will NOT take charge of their children -

Dad Wants Insurance Company to Foot the Bill for Daughter's Wayward Behavior

Saturday, April 07, 2007

Daddies, it seems, can forgive their little girls for just about anything — especially when there's an insurance company to fall back on.

That seems to be the case of a Marietta, Ga., father who not only was willing to forgive his then 19-year-old daughter for leading police on a high-speed chase while she was high on drugs, but also figured she wasn't responsible when cops were forced to smash in the car's windows to make an arrest.

That was in 2003, but now Michael Natbony wants someone to compensate him for repairs to his car — and, of course, it's not going to be his daughter, Jennifer.

Natbony wants his insurance company to foot the $12,612 repair to his Lexus SUV, according to a lawsuit filed by his attorney Robert S. Windholz. A trial in Fulton County State Court is tentatively scheduled for next week.

Attorney Steven J. Angles, who represents Progressive Casualty Insurance Co., claimed in court documents that the insurance company isn't responsible for "lawful damages"; in other words, for the pounding the car took when the cops rammed it. The Natbonys have declined to comment.

 

J.E. Van Alstine, the Cobb County officer who chased and ultimately stopped the Lexus, laughed that the girl's father would sue over an incident caused by her wild ways.

He remembers that Jennifer Natbony had pushed the Lexus to speeds past 100 mph and turned off her lights during the 5 a.m. chase. And though there wasn't much traffic, she was speeding and going the wrong way on a one-way street when she passed Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where there could have been a shift change or ambulance en route, the officer said.

"The chase was certainly worthy of something more than probation," Van Alstine said Thursday when he learned of Natbony's sentence. "I thought she did some time."

If the insurance company and the Natbonys can't reach a settlement, a Fulton County jury will have to decide who should pay for the damage.
