I don't care who's "blood" is involved. This woman has had two prior run-ins with the law and is obviously an incompetent parent. One of the
most disgusting and harmful things done in this country is work toward "family reunification" when parents commit crimes or abuse their children.
There are kids all over this country who have been reunited with parents who were drug addicts, serious child abusers, prostitutes. People who have
done these things on a repeated basis and continue to have their children reunited with them.
Neglect your child, don't feed them, properly cloth nor supervise them while you're out smoking crack and turning tricks and 90 days later after
some bs rehab its "honest Your Honor, I learned my lesson" and back goes the kid. Second strike, third strike and still its back to the parent,
all in the name of "blood".
Neglecting or abusing a child is a one strike offense. The child threw up. She could have easily have choked to death, particularily when strapped
in a car seat which is designed to constrain the movement of the kid making it impossible for her to roll over on to her stomach. The car was
running, meaning the keys were in it, making it ripe for stealing.
As a parent of both my own and an adopted child, is there a tighter bond with natural children over an adopted one? Yes, because your natural child
reminds you of other people you love as well as your own childhood as they remind you of yourself. Is that difference significant? Not really, its
a subtle thing. There is no way that this kid would not be better off in another setting, whether that is another family or a well run institution.
I know that I'll get grief about the institution bit, but it is a better thing than being with an incompetent and neglectful parent. Why?
Because in an institutional setting the childs notion of trust and the conception of what a loving family is is not destroyed like it is when she is
living with trash like this woman
