The HERO tag is a *severe* understatement in this case.

These folks should be canonized.

The Muthaship: 3 grammar Nazis and a jackass right out of the gate.  Fark rarely disappoints.


Hey, subby asked for it. It's not a lot to ask that people understand the basics of the English language.

Now that I have that out of the way, this is a great story. These people are awesome, and definitely deserve some kudos, as well as the family that adopted 'Baby J', it's nice to hear these stories, and reminds me of my own foster parents. They adopted 4 kids, fostered me, let anyone's friends in HS who were having family issues stay at the house, loaned out the house every summer for an Easter Seals sponsored summer camp, and other stuff. Ours was the house where dinner was cooked for 12, no matter who was there, because anyone could stop by and eat, you could have any of your friends stay for dinner without having to tell anyone. In a town that had actual Crips and Bloods, and some crime issues, we never had to lock our doors because about 75% of the criminals in town had spent some time at their house as kids, and the place was off-limits. I don't think that they could have gone anywhere near this level of care, they had enough problems with an emotionally wrecked 17 year old, but they still gave a lot and deserve some credit.

The people in this story? They deserve sainthood. You get money for a foster kid, but not 400 doctor's visits worth. I hope to hell they didn't have a co-pay for a foster kid. That alone would be $10 Grand, based ona $25 copay.

I had a real hard day yesterday, and woke up feeling pretty awful this morning. This article was the first thing I read, bringing me to tears (of joyous wonder). What a beautiful story. Thanks.

God damn, it's all I can do to rescue an unwanted dog.  I kept one kid alive until adulthood and that's some kind of miracle.  Good thing she was tuff.  Can't see doing that experiment again starting with a broken one.

This *is* a great story.  Props to your folks.

My wife and I had planned to start fostering once she graduated from med school.  But she developed congestive heart failure, had open heart surgery, and was unconscious for a week.  Then we found out she had a brain injury while under, and she was unable to complete her program...and she was one semester away from graduation.  So we now have a nifty $100K school loan to deal with, and she never finished school...so no income.  We're still talking about fostering, if we can figure out how to afford it.

My stepsons should be out of the house in another 5 years, and my daughter will be 9 or so. The wife and I have thought that would be a good time frame to take in a foster kid or two. The nice part is; even the stepsons will help with a little one, they've been great with their sister.

Fostering is tough, you never know what kind of baggage the kids are going to come saddled with, but I know what it's like to sit in a Group Home with nobody around at holidays...

This is a lovely story and the foster parents are lovely people, but this also sounds like a really good reason why crackheads shouldn't have kids. Ever.

27 illnesses at birth and being born without a pancreas sounds like nature saying, "Uh, maybe this isn't such a good idea." Cute kid, though.

And then they let that same drug addicted syphylitic broad have ANOTHER kid, who also needs a home? Why? Who are these people? When you fail so spectacularly, shouldn't your breeding priviledges be taken away?

Breeding is not a privilege, Herr Earthworm.   However, the punch in the face mentioned above feeeeeels like a good idea.

Are spelling bees no longer hosted in your eugenics program?

Breeding is neither a privilege nor a right. It is simply part of our biological make-up, like breathing and digestion. Yet, as a society, we have decided that we can, in certain circumstances, legally cause those functions to cease in some individuals.

So why not the same with breeding?

"The baby was born with 27 illnesses, including being born blind, deaf, diabetic, addicted to cocaine and plagued with neurosyphilis, which left her hands and feet raw and skinless. "

Holy farking shiat.  It's amazing the girl is still alive.

And those two parents are awesome.  Sad that the father died.

Human rights are "commonly understood as inalienable fundamental

Not to be all Wikipedia, but it pretty much gets the gist of what is and is not a human right.  Breeding being an activity that is inalienable to us as an entity and such as breathing is a part of that whole "life, liberty,and the pursuit of happiness, your contention that breathing or digestion can be separated from the human right to life is not supported by the literature of hundreds of years of philosophical thought.

Why not breeding?  How about why not breathing?  How about we make breathing a privilege instead of a human right?  You ok with that?
 
2013-04-03 01:34:11 PM
To finish that thought on Human Rights:

Human rights are "commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being"

Well now that my husband is just annoyed by me telling him this story, I wanted to rant here.

1. This couple is really farking awesome.
2. Ehrm... I know this calls upon the great Godwin, but... Quality of life? In this case it seems pretty cut and dried that J's going to be a fairly functional person, but faced with the initial problems she had, I would've said "let her go, man".
3. On that note, why the FARK did the doctors/hospital not notice that the blindness and deafness were frickin' curable?! OMGWTFBBQ. Those are important!
3.5. And how the fark did they not notice she didn't have a pancreas?! Jesus!
4. And as a last argh, my husband and I are generally healthy, intelligent, upstanding folks and we had one kid. But this girl's mother is literally a syphilitic crack-whore and appears to be spreading her (potentially sub-optimal) genetic material as fast as she possibly can. I don't necessarily think letting her have more and more kids is the best idea ever. Can't we... Like... Pay her to have a tubal? She'd have money, it'd be cool. Aboveboard. Right? *wince*
