There are some things that I can't forgive....

What this "mother" did is incomprehensible! She should NEVER be allowed to have children again!

I see things like this and I want to scream. That I have to go through YEARS of infertility, pay THOUSANDS of dollars (all worth it, by the way) and have people pick through my private life to decide if I am suitable to finally be a mom....and this woman can just "pop" them out and then hands her child over to be abused.....AHHHHHH!

Now CYFD will get involved and they will probably give her classes to get her GED, free therapy, job training, government subsidised housing and rehab. Then they'll decide she's a "fit" parent and hand the child back to her because she's the "biological" mom. Why do we give these people another chance to mess up the next generation? Biology holds way to much weight in children's court these days.

I am totally serious when I say that EVERYONE, that wants to have a child, should have to go through the process that adoptive parents do, before they are allowed to procreate. We'd not only solve the world's overpopulation problem, but we'd stop teen pregnancy too.

Now, before anyone yells at me that, (said with a winey voice) "that would mean you wouldn't have your son," let me just say that God always planned on Samuel being my son and that would never change, but if it would mean that children would never be offered as sexual slaves again, I would be a martyr for the cause.

There are some things that I can't forgive. I struggle with this. In my Bible class I heard the following: "JUSTICE is getting what you deserve, MERCY is not getting what you deserve and GRACE is getting what you don't deserve." God is all about grace, and I do pray that Antoinette Nicole Davis, gets her act together, but part of the price of her crimes should be that she NEVER gets her daughter back. Offer a prayer today for the little, Shaniya. I pray that you find a wonderful home to love you and that you are raised to be a happy, healthy, strong woman, that will make this would a better place. May God hold you tightly, Shaniya. God bless you.

Things like this just make me so mad!!! I see it everyday women having lots of children and little girls of all ages are left to roam the streets all hours of the night and all it seems like they ever get is a slap on the wrist.It's so hypocritical really. Why is a biological mothers are looked at as a 'real' mother and an adoptive mother mother seen as someone who couldn't have a baby and had to 'get' one, in my eyes it's the same thing because they are both mothers. It makes me so mad to see women who are BLESSED with the ability to give birth act like it's nothing and treat their children like pawns in a game. I pray for you little Shaniya

I had to gigle when I saw this post (yes, I know the story behind it is NOT funny, and that part makes my heart ache..) because it sounds EXACTLY like what I have been running around stating for the last 2 weeks to any and everyone who will listen! (I really think if another one of my "non-adoptive" moms hears me say it again they will clobber me!) But it is so true!
Here I sit and have evry aspect of my life disected, about to have the Fire Dept to my house for the 2ND time to be inspected, and the chick that is renting my house is 8 months pregnant, on disability for some morning sickness that no longer exists, as she chain smokes 2 packs of cigs a day, just returned from a week in Vegas, and admits to drinking on occassion because a few drinks here and there "won't hurt the baby'! UGH! I could pull my freaking hair out!
Okay, thanks for letting me rant!!! It IS really SAD though isn't it???

I heard the story on the news down here, too. My question, though, was why would God bless this lady with a child only to have this child experience such trauma. I mean, God knew this would happen to just breaks my heart. I know one day it will make sense, but today it just bothers the heck out of me, too!

I agree! This made me sick. JUST SICK! I could go on and on about the value of a life like a little child... but it's all been said!

BTW I love your new background - so cute!

I'm sure you already know this but that beautiful little girl was found dead. This is the reason I don't watch the knews. That beautiful little face and this horrible story will be haunting me for a very long time.
