Philbb: FTFH: "I gave away my little girl so I could get drunk"You can do this? Why didn't anybody tell me? I thought I had to wait until my kids were grown.
lockers: That has to be one of the most level headed and responsible decisions she could have made. Was it selfish? Sure. But less so than if she just binge drank while neglecting her kid.
violentsalvation: Uh... Thanks for not destroying your daughter's life too, I commend you for having the momentary mental clarity to decide not to give your kid a childhood of neglect and abuse.
Gunther: It's the Daily Mail. There's a 50% chance the story is completely fabricated, and a 100% chance it's been embellished.
Spaced Lion: ...Lucy?
gonegirl: So an addict put her child into a sane and safe situation, bottomed out, got clean, and then reconnected with her kid afterwards.And Subby wants me to shame this woman in some way?
autoredial: anyone else think sterility should be default and parenthood should be a conscious choice?
QueenMamaBee: IMO if you fark up that badly, you've lost your right to be a parent. I'm sure she's given that kid lots of issues to discuss with her shrink
gadian: QueenMamaBee: IMO if you fark up that badly, you've lost your right to be a parent. I'm sure she's given that kid lots of issues to discuss with her shrinkAt least those issues aren't "here's everything bad that happened to me or that my mom missed out on while she was drunk off her ass for the first 18 years of my life".
QueenMamaBee: So she sent the kid to live with dad because drinking was more important, almost drank herself to death, got sober, then came back swooping in like " Oh Mummy's back, Mummy is the greatest mummy ever. Love love love"?IMO if you fark up that badly, you've lost your right to be a parent. I'm sure she's given that kid lots of issues to discuss with her shrink
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Could be worse/could have just murdered her//and gotten away with it
E5bie: QueenMamaBee: So she sent the kid to live with dad because drinking was more important, almost drank herself to death, got sober, then came back swooping in like " Oh Mummy's back, Mummy is the greatest mummy ever. Love love love"?IMO if you fark up that badly, you've lost your right to be a parent. I'm sure she's given that kid lots of issues to discuss with her shrinkNot really. More like, "Mummy, can I live with you, please? Dad's got replacement kids now."At least with alcoholism you can tell when the crazy train is about to return. Not so with schizoid and evil.
ultraholland: What a horrible thing to do. A healthy white baby can fetch thousands on the black market, and that kind of scratch can fund a bender to end all benders. She just gives the child away. This biatch disgusts me.
gglibertine: I'm not going to praise this woman for "making a responsible decision." A responsible decision would have been to go to rehab. Giving your child away so you can keep getting drunk is not going to "save" the child. It's just going to give her a second complex to add to the one she already has from living with a drunk parent. And then, once she's had time to build a new life, suddenly her attention whore Mum wants her back and she's expected to be happy and grateful about it. She's not old enough to know better. She's not old enough to say "fark off, biatch, you had your chance." And she has most certainly not forgiven anything, she just feels obligated to say she has so Mum can have her moment of "redemption in the newspaper".Look at that little girl's face. The forced, closed-lipped smile. The sad eyes. I know that expression well.I hope she gets the help she needs. And that she already has a support system in place before Mumsie gets bored with dressing up the dollie and wants her gone again.
E5bie: QueenMamaBee:With my alcoholic dad, the crazy train never left. Joy joy joy.My sympathies. That's horrible. Some (not all) people do change when they get sober though. OTOH the crazy and the asinine are at higher risk of developing alcoholism in the first place, in which case getting sober gives them the opportunity to start addressing their other problems (if they will).
Mandapants: An acquaintance of mine is a lady who is on her 7th marriage (she's 50-ish now).She had kids with one husband, then couldn't deal with the situation and left after finding another guy ... then had another kid that she couldn't cope with and left again.2 out of the 3 kids seem okay. The remaining kid has some serious psychological issues and is in jail for several cases of arson with major damage.This is one of the instances where you really wish that parenting licenses were real.
