Saw these people on the today show this morning:
Go to story on Nuzum family.
Are these people on CRACK?!
And more importantly is the adoption system on it?
I mean these people do not have the means to support all these kids....many of whom have special needs. While it is admirable that they want to help all these speicial needs children....they need to realize that they cannot *afford* to do so. They can't just keep adotping an expect that the community will help.
This leads me to another topic, sorta related that burns my butt:
I am soooooo sick of society rewarding people for having too many kids. Like the big deal we make over mutli-births. These people get showered with gifts as elaborate as new homes and cars....to having volunteers come in to help take care of the babies. While I am not against the spirit of helping/giving, I am against the practice of fertilizing several eggs at once and implanting them. I mean obviously the procedure has been perfected if it can cause women to be pregnant with 6, 7, 8 babies....so why not just implant 3 eggs? And I say 3 only, because there is a chance not all will take, but there is a HUGE chance nowadays that they will.
Okay, maybe it's the bad mood I'm in today, but geez....had to go off about this. Just had to....
