You're correct. Those poor kids you just want to give them a bath or put some clothes on them. I don't understand how a 6 month old can have dirty toenails. I guess they let them crawl in the mud because they usually are not walking at that age. If you can't keep your kid clean, I don't understand why you are allowed to keep it. The state needs more abilities to take these children and allow them to go into adoption placement without the biological parents ever being allowed to take the kids back. You wouldn't see so many foreign adoptions if these loser parents couldn't take the kids back after a few years.
C'mon Jen lighten up, this is supposed to be a fun and sarcastic thread.

Portsmouth likes to claim anything within thirty miles, as long as it is somewhat positive. Branch Rickey was not born in nor did he live in Portsmouth, but somehow that fact is ignored. The A-Plant is not the Portsmouth A-Plant, but the local news media call it that (or some variation of it.). Don Gullett is from Kentucky, but he 's somehow a Portsmouth guy. At least Roy Rogers did live in Portsmouth briefly during his boyfriend, but his family moved to the country ASAP.
The A-Plant, built by the Goodyear Atomic Corporation (now defunct) under contract from the federal government, was most assuredly the Portsmouth A-Plant. It was a huge project, and one of the main factors in the choice of site was the Portsmouth population center which provided sufficient workers. Get educated and watch this video by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, entitled "The PORTSMOUTH Story":
