Wow. I gotta ask, what are they doing that they can promise babies in six to nine months?

Nine months is easy. Six months is a little harder, but if you harvest them before they are ripe you can sell them as rare "miniatures" for a higher price.

St_Francis_P: And if you set them on the window sill, they'll ripen naturally from the sun.

It you set them atop the piano, they'll entertain, amuse, sadden, and outrage.

That is absolutely nauseating.

Who paints a wall Navy Blue? They're not gay. Is this an Onion article??

"For some women it's very important to have a family that is not around them," Kane says.

Totally out of context, but true. :-)

croesius: megalynn44: My husband & I will be entering the adoption waters this Spring if our next round of in vitro fails. We've already been trying for 2 years. The prospect of 3 more is utterly heartbreaking to be quite honest. It's so scary because I do not think I could emotionally handle being conned in that way- giving someone money for a baby and it not working out.

Kudos to you and yours. Adoption is a wonderfully noble thing, regardless of the reasons behind it. Mrs. Croesius had a child in college, and scheduled an open adoption as she knew she couldn't give him the life he deserved and needed. Not too versed as to the popularity of open adoptions, but it has been a good thing for all involved. He has a terrific loving family, still gets bier day cards and occasional calls from her, and we visit when we get up in that neck of the woods. Long story short, good on you for your desire to enrich multiple lives.

/odd thing is, his adoptive parents gave him the same name I have...and this was 8 years prior to me meeting her.


Hmmm.... bier day = birthday. He's no quite old enough for biers yet.

A gay couple with a poodle named Paisley? That's so gay it almost makes it back to "ironically straight".

soup: If only Obummer would get rid of those useless government regulations, we could finally buy some adopted children at Walmart while shopping for sweatpants like the founding fathers intended.


Walmart?! Puh-leeze, as though I would buy one of those shoddy, mass-produced, made in China children...
