GBB: Must not be football material.[www.aceshowbiz.com image 850x457]
GCD: The sad part is, it's still probably easier, quicker and cheaper to adopt a child from over-seas.
EdNortonsTwin: Where's the altruistic left? What, no takers?
MNguy: EdNortonsTwin: Where's the altruistic left? What, no takers?I bet he could shovel snow and wash dishes pretty well, exploitative right
DarkSoulNoHope: Come on Christians, this kid wasn't aborted like your doctrine demands, now put your money where your mouth is and adopt this kid so I can ignore him later in life passing out Chick Tracts to me at the mall!
Loucifer: What's his time in the 40?
NephilimNexus: It's very clear what's going on. He has just run into the vast chasm between what people say they want to do and what they're actually willing to do.
Publikwerks: EdNortonsTwin: Where's the altruistic left? What, no takers?No, the left want the government to take care of him, which is what it's doing. The right, on the other hand, want charities or trickle down blah blah blah he needs to get a job.
Ebenator: Say that reminds me, how'd you get that kid so darn fast? Me and Dot went in to adopt on account a' somethin' went wrong with my semen, and they said we had to wait five years for a healthy white baby. I said, "Healthy white baby? Five years? What else you got?" Said they got two Koreans and a negra born with his heart on the outside. It's a crazy world.
Nabb1: The Internet: where people think sharing a link or voicing opinions is just as good as doing something.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Sadly, at 15 he's probably going to stay an orphan/it sucks, but you do kind of get used to not having a family//you save a fortune on Mother's and Father's day cards and gifts alone
GBB: MNguy: EdNortonsTwin: Where's the altruistic left? What, no takers?I bet he could shovel snow,sell drugs, work at a call center,tutor other kids in mathand wash dishes pretty well, exploitative rightRacist.
big pig peaches: The government bureaucratic machine is the problem here.
Gentoolive: it's the govt agency in control that's screwing him over. Yay govt control
meow said the dog: EdNortonsTwin: Where's the altruistic left? What, no takers?Where are the pro-"life?" Ohhhh they only care from the uterus to out.
Mr. Right: DarkSoulNoHope: Come on Christians, this kid wasn't aborted like your doctrine demands, now put your money where your mouth is and adopt this kid so I can ignore him later in life passing out Chick Tracts to me at the mall!Read the article. Thousands called in, hundreds left messages that never got a call back. A family from Michigan that did get a call back was informed that Eckerd (the foster agency) wouldn't allow him to be adopted out of state. I have no idea if any or all of the callers are Christian. There is a real problem with this story and it's pretty obvious that something, somewhere is broken. But you can't lay this on a lack of desire to adopt the kid, Christian or otherwise.
Nabb1: Do we need to start arguing about abortion in a thread about an ORPHAN? But, hey, you can leave the thread satisfied with how you are making the world a better place.
