You all have a right to your opinions. I'll be adopting a family again this year to give them a Christmas they wouldn't otherwise have. Will this FAMILY be a single "man". NOOOOO!

Think about this. Who makes up the majority of the homeless? Men. If we can help this person out to keep him from becoming homeless, then he has a much better chance of finding another job and being able to support himself and pay taxes again. Belittling someone who is humbly and honestly asking for help is just plain cruel. Single mothers with children have MANY MORE avenues to pursue assistance. It is sexist to assume that just because someone is a male that they are less deserving and it puts a terrible pressure on men to expect them to assume more responsibility than women in supporting themselves. Finally, who do you think is dying and becoming blind and dismembered in Afghanistan right now? Poor, rural males who feel that they have nowhere else to turn to find a means to support themselves so they get caught up in the "economic draft." Because of the prevailing attitude that if they are "MEN" they have to magically make jobs appear, even though this country now is in a financial mess. The middle class is being pushed out. There will be many more homeless before this economic mess is through and they will be mostly men.

So you support yourself through the government by adopting children. Why don't you go get a job and support your own self quit using the children to get all the freebies. I hope you are kidding about adopting cause you sound like someone that's abuse to children your only interest is the money.

No. I adopt a family through the Salvation Army and the Boys and Girls Club for the Holidays. I don't have kids of my own and I don't adopt any kids. I just hear too many stories of dead beat dads that let their kids suffer, then try to ask for a hand out. If you really want to give back, adopt a family from the Salvation Army or Boys and Girls club. You would do them a lot of good. Like I said, I don't give hand outs to "men" that have kids to support and whine about it. Get a clue and help these women out.

I'd rather spend my money on a single woman trying to raise her kids. If you think that's bitter, you have serious issues.

Now I know why your bitter cause you have no kids of you own and you wonder why, look at yourself in the mirror and your past that's why you are bitter. I still think you are an abuses person toward your self other people and children those I wary more cause they are innocent the children.
