I thought it was weird, too. Although maybe they did it to get a girl? My black friend in HS was adopted b/c her parents wanted a daughter, and they had four boys already.<quoted text>
I am in no way defending this woman, but I wonder who's idea it was to adopt in the first place. They already had 4 kids. Sure, they could afford it, but you really have to WANT more kids if you are adopting. I wonder if this was his idea. Something that he wanted to do, and she just went along with it.
Either way, I can't imagine rasing a child from 1996 to 2003, 7 gd years, and then putting her up for adoption. That's just heartless. I wonder what kind of special needs she is. Regardless, this woman had more than enough money to hire help if it was too much for her to handle.
So the kid is now 17 or so? About to be rich.
I wonder if mom was't thrilled that the girl had medical problems in this story?
But yeah, giving the child up at 7? That's pretty heartless. She obviously didn't bond with her adopted daughter.
