See if people from those "pro-life" groups are willing to take the kid.

I have a solution.  Or really, it is more of a modest proposal...

That's a hell of a way to keep the little shiats in line isn't it ?

namegoeshere: mesmer242: UberDave: Neighbors were used to seeing the little boy playing with his toy cars and chickens outside his mom's home in Huffman.

Well, that explains things.  Mention of that area needs to accompany Alan Jackson music...or banjo music.

My son turns 3 tomorrow.  I can't even begin to imagine how totally farked up one would have to be to remotely consider getting rid of their kid.

According to the article, pregnant and off her depression/anxiety meds. That can make people pretty messed up.

Here's a decent primer on prenatal depression: t _anyone_talking_about_prenatal_depression_/pregnancy_and_prenatal_depr ession_why_didn_t_anyone_warn_me_i_would_feel_so_bad_.html

I hope she gets help and is able to resume being a functioning parent at some point. That does actually happen sometimes.

I feel for her. That said, maybe she should have stayed on her meds, and added some birth control.

You do not need a second child. Stay healthy, and care for the one you've already been blessed with.

Her doctor was probably the one that told her it'd be ok to go off the meds. If she didn't have an issue the first time around (every pregnancy is so different), there'd be no way to know. Until recently, doctors thought pregnancy hormones protected against depression and a doctor who's not up to date on research will blithely take patients off their meds.

I found out about prenatal depression when I had a friend completely lose it during the first part of her pregnancy. She'd never had any signs of depression before other than not being able to handle taking birth control pills. That's the kicker - if you have emotional issues due to birth control, you're more likely to have emotional problems when you get pregnant. It's a catch-22 since it's easier for you to get pregnant from trying to rely on other methods. My friend made through it ok eventually, but is not willing to have another child. If she'd had a "normal" pregnancy the first go-round, she may have tried for a second - oblivious to the risk.

I never had any problems with depression during pregnancy so I had no idea it existed. Now I try to mention it whenever appropriate because it's not talked about and doctors only recently realized that there's a real basis for it. If any depressed pregnant women stumble upon this thread: You are not alone. Your brain is messing with you - you are a worthwhile person! Ask your doctor, your family and your friends for their help until you feel better and take meds if you need to.

Aarontology: EvilEgg: She didn't even charge any money. Sure, a three year old isn't worth as much a baby, but still you could probably get at least one or two thousand.

I traded one for a flat screen tv and a bag of weed once.

Yeah, about that:

I want my TV and weed back. This three year old sucks.

Pretty tempting offer.

You get a kid without dealing with all the costs associated with childbirth plus the kid comes potty trained (hopefully).

We should all be born with our tubes tied.  There should be a $1000 charge and a 12th grade level math and reading test required to get them untied at age 18.
