Pattuq: There isn't a single non-ridiculous name in that entire article aside from his Grandmother.  La Dwina?  Demetrius???


Hey man, my Grandma was named Demetria.  My Grandfather's name was Orion, so put it in your pipe and smoke it.


/They had some interesting names in the hill country.

Depends on if its "he really loves bball, so give him something he likes as a prop" or "they really love bball, so give him something they like as a prop"

little Jeff: the aunt wouldn't take him in?  nice......


Lots of reasons why someone wouldn't take their siblings kids. This woman has a criminal record, but if not "Just don't want to" is an extremely valid reason.  No sense in upsetting your own home and family to take in a kid no one wants with his/her associated baggage when he/she can just find a good drama free home without you.

"Forever home?" Is he a stray dog? We really do talk about adoptees like they're pets.

Based on how they are treated sometimes , they might as well be.

Mikey1969 and cheryl taggart, thank you. Food for thought. We shared 2 meals with the kids at the Masonic Home, on 2 different days (my National Guard unit did a work day last Friday, painting, maintenance, etc. The next day I blew off my NG Christmas party to go to theirs). Some kids have visits with their families on weekends, some don't. The Masonic Home has an off campus home visit weekend that I am compelled to investigate. A tiny, shy 8 year old boy's family never comes for him. Cute as a button, so I wanted to bring him home. But over dinner, several very bright, sweet teen girls clustered around me, asking me tons of questions, and telling me how good they were in school, how they loved music, how they liked my hair, wanted to meet my dogs....how do you choose? My husband and I decided, as a start, we will go back to visit as often as possible. I love to do tie dye. I talked to the head guy about coming out with a bunch of white t-shirts and dye to do tie dye day. I want to donate flower seeds and board games and books and my time. I want to send each of those kids a birthday card on their birthday. I was blessed with an awesome mom (RIP). I can't do nothing for them. My mother would have felt the same.

That work day was the best thing I have done in a long time. I want to go back.

My mom came from around Joplin, MO. She had an aunt named Fluta, a cousin named Wilene, and twin cousins named Currage and Justis. Guess they spelled their names phonetically.

I wish I could take him but I've already got my own in college, one of her friends living here because of difficulties with her family and my nephew's baby because his girlfriend is in jail and he's barely capable of taking care of himself let alone a baby.

My hands and house are full.

I need a bigger house.

I wish I had thought of that when I was 15 and learned my parents were homophobic.

Just find another family, this time with cool parents!

Kid is a genius.

I have great aunts named Kitsie and Cocoe.  My great grandfather was Dargan.  I've always said that if I have a daughter, I want to name her Kitsie, but my husband thinks it sounds like "trash".  ...Which it might, but I still think it's damn awesome.

As long as he keeps away from the Kuritas and Liaos everything should be ok. Nothing good ever comes from a Davion being around the Draconis Combine or Capellan Confederation.
/got my eye on you too Mariks.
