Sometimes people are exactly what they seem to be. I am not being cynical, I do care. I really do. It is becoming increasingly difficult for me to continue to do so  after all the abuse heaped on me for my different viewpoint. Read more

Thank you for sharing your story, it adds to the wonderful and colorful dialogue we have going in this commentary section. I understand your viewpoint, and I agree. I agree that there is a need for foster care and adoption. I agree that we need to meet the existing demand for both. Further, I understand that not every Read more

I’m not telling anyone to do anything. I am attempting to have an adult dialogue regarding adoption without resorting to name calling and derogatory remarks. Obviously I touched on a subject that is near and dear to your ideals. There are many different situations leading up to adoption, the one you described sounds Read more

I’m not forcing anyone to do anything. There is quite literally a very large demand for foster care and adoption in America. I am one of the few folks that want to make the lives of a child in this circumstance better. Not sure how this became a discussion on me forcing my ideals onto someone else. I am just Read more

I understand it’s hard, I have not done it I lack the appropriate equipment. However I can provide insight from the loving husband perspective. I can provide insight on “geriatric” pregnancy, I can provide insight on type-2 diabetic pregnancy and the difficulty in controlling diabetes during pregnancy. And I can Read more

Thank you. Not sure how I turned out the way I did, but I’m glad I did. I had a very chaotic childhood, After my birth Mom and dad divorced, mom then married same sex, dad went through 6, yes 6 marriages. I was raised by Dad and wife# 2, 3 and a little from#4. Both mom and dad are docs FWIW. Sis went to the UK and Read more

Agreed, and I am not forcing my ideas onto anyone. Just attempting to have an adult dialogue about a very touchy subject. Thankfully this is what makes America great, the fact that we can disagree and still be neighbors.

I have an idea...in fact I have 3. I have been present at every one of my child births. Momma is a “Geriatric” type 2 diabetic. our 3rd child almost went the way of cesarean. Docs were very concerned with baby position and shoulder dystocia...apparently kiddos born from diabetic mothers are “large” and have a higher Read more

I understand where you are coming from, but you as an adopted person—would you rather not have been alive? Just asking.

Sad and heart wrenching stories indeed. One thing I feel missing from the narrative is adoption. There needs to be more discussion about adoption. Folks need see this a a very viable alternative to abortion. Do you know how hard it is to adopt a child? Do you know how expensive it is to adopt? Very hard, and 25k on Read more

I think it was a nefarious cat plot involving a rube goldberg type machine. At Least that’s the explanation that I came up with when I discovered several cooking spoons on the floor covered in kitty vomit as well as on the countertops, cabinetry and ceiling. Yeah I think my cat is plotting my demise.
