Recommended Blog

A foster care alum contacted me about her new blog. I've just read the first two posts. It promises to be a moving and thoughtful blog. I recommend you add it to your list.

Growing Up Lost

    Thank you for sharing this, Yondalla!

  2. I just read it.

    OK, I know that adoption isn't and shouldn't be about taking children away from "less deserving" parents and giving them to "more deserving" parents, but the blogger's mom, that woman, if she has any more children, should have them taken away from her immediately. If Mom hasn't learned by her mid-twenties that wanting a more exciting social life is not an acceptable excuse for child abandonment, Mom is not salvageable.

    Do Social Workers not have the latitude to allow parents and grandparents like that to stick with the "social life" story, let them sign the papers, and then immediately have the b*tches arrested for child abandonment? If I was a judge, I'd sentence each of them to prison for eighteen years - you thought being responsible for a child was too restrictive? Well enjoy your social life in lockdown, ladies.

    Oh, I'm so angry now

Comments will be open for a little while, then I will be shutting them off. The blog will stay, but I do not want either to moderate comments or leave the blog available to spammers.
