Why are so many grand parents raising their grandchildren? Are drugs so great that mom and dads choose them over their children? Why are you throwing away such precious lives and are so selfish that you cant see beyond getting high. I don't get it, if you cant be a parent then don't bring them into this world. It should be punishable by a jail sentence and then maybe they may come back to reality when they are sitting in jail for not being a parent. The only punishment a parent gets, is for their child to be taken away and they don't care or it would not have happened anyway. The mother is given every opportunity by the judge to get their child back and most don't they just go the other way and I feel the judge should give them a year in jail. The laws need to be changed for the justice of these children and then maybe these mothers and fathers want be so quick to continue their drugs and forget about their children.

I don't understand it either im raising one child and the mother doesn't even think about him at. She also chose drugs and a man over her child and doesn't even give him the time of day. She has had two more and threw them away also. People like this should be punished by having a jail sentence.

I'm raising one, the mother has thrown away a total of four precious babies with four different daddies to four different homes. I'm just glad she didn't kill them like some do.
But I agree there should be punishment of some kind for people who have babies and then just walk away. Even animals don't do that. But animals don't do drugs either.

Its a shame that these mothers today do this. I feel strong is saying give them a year in jail for doing so and it might change some things. All the courts do is take the responsibility away in which they didn't want to begin with and they run off enjoying their ridiculous lives. If you cant be a parent then don't become one I certainly didn't want to become a parent again at my age but I will do whatever it takes to ensure a happy healthy life for this child. You so called mothers should get yourselves fixed so you don't bring anymore children into this world to suffer by your hand. I say put them in jail!

I agree with you whole heartedly....if you don't want children, use birth control instead of bringing a bunch of un wanted babies into the world. There are so many couples out there that want children and would make wonderful parents that can't have them. I will never understand how a woman can give birth to a baby and walk away without another thought. A jail sentence would probably be a good idea, but I think steralization would work wonders.

I'm with everyone else, it's terrible how so many parents are not raising their children. But how would we lock them all up in jail, there would not be ever be enough jail space for all of them. I truly don't believe in abortion and will never understand how so many feel it is ok. I do think that after a woman has given 1 or 2 children away, she should be forced to have her tubes tied.

Jail time is not the answer. The woman has been and out of jail so many times its like a revolving door.
It is good that your grandchild and other children have good grandparents who love them and want them. But I can't begin to imagine what it must be like for a little child to know their mother didn't want them! Can anyone else ever really make up for that sense of loss in their lives? I don't know, I guess time will tell.

"Listen, then, to what I say unto you: Respect woman, for she is the mother of the universe, and all the truth of divine creation lies in her.

"She is the basis of all that is good and beautiful, as she is also the gem of life and death. On her depends the whole existence of man, for she is his natural and moral support.

"She gives birth to you in the midst of suffering. By the sweat of her brow she rears you, and until her death you cause her the gravest anxieties. Bless her and worship her, for she is your one friend, your one support on earth.

"Respect her, uphold her. In acting thus you will win her love and her heart. You will find favor in the sight of God and many sins shall be forgiven you.

"In the same way, love your wives and respect them; for they will be mothers tomorrow, and each later on the ancestress of a race.

"Be lenient towards woman. Her love ennobles man, softens his hardened heart, tames the brute in him, and makes of him a lamb.

"The wife and the mother are the inappreciable treasures given unto you by God. They are the fairest ornaments of existence, and of them shall be born all the inhabitants of the world.

"Even as the God of armies separated of old the light from the darkness and the land from the waters, woman possesses the divine faculty of separating in a man good intentions from evil thoughts.

"Wherefore I say unto you, after God your best thoughts should belong to the women and the wives, woman being for you the temple wherein you will obtain the most easily perfect happiness.

"Imbue yourselves in this temple with moral strength. Here you will forget your sorrows and your failures, and you will recover the lost energy necessary to enable you to help your neighbor.

"Do not expose her to humiliation. In acting thus you would humiliate yourselves and lose the sentiment of love, without which nothing exists here below.

"Protect your wife, in order that she may protect you and all your family. All that you do for your wife, your mother, for a widow or another woman in distress, you will have done unto your God."

YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY BABY!

Technology and liberal values will be the death of America. Twenty years ago, if you were a child and screwed up, you got yer azz beat. It taught you a valuable lesson. Don`t do scummy things. Now with the liberal agenda in place, you cannot correct your children without fear of breaking the law.

I can answer that question for you. My parents (both) gave me to my grandparents when I was 2 years old. They in turn adopted me out of the family. No, no one can ever make up for the sense of loss I've had all my life knowing my parents didn't want me. I was not lucky enough to have the best foster parents either, but at least they tried. Its something I had to come to terms with in my life, and move on. Its absolutely something I could never do to my children.

Your story is so sad and I hope you the best, and you know even if the grandparents raise their grandchildren they will always have that sense of loss and unworthiness and love. There does need to be a punishment for these parents im not saying jail is it but I don't know what the answer is but these children deserve better.

I'm sorry for what you've had to go through; maybe it would have turned out different if your grandparents hadn't adopted you out, I don't know. I hope they have all come to realize what a precious gift they lost in the process, and it sounds like your experience has made you a better person as well as a better parent. All the best to you and yours for the future!

Thank you for your kind words, but please don't feel sorry for me. I'm a survivor, not a victim. I agree these children deserve better, and it really makes me sad when I see all these mothers just leaving their babies behind. They will have so much to over come when they grow up. I have met both my parents, and I've asked them why they did what they did, and honestly....no answer is sufficiant for me. I'm just grateful for my 2 beautiful boys, and I strive everyday to be the best mother I can be for them.
