Seven Kids Left in Africa Begged for Change. Allegedly abandoned by their American mother in Africa as she took up military contract work in Iraq, seven children from Texas begged small change to buy food and shuttled from a neglectful stranger's care to a concrete-block orphanage, Nigerians said Thursday.

Ages 7 to 16, the children apparently spent 10 months in Nigeria. They didn't arrive at their last stop - the government orphanage in this market city of millions bustling with traders and crippled and leprous beggars - until a few weeks ago.

Don't mean to sound like a bastard, but it happens all the time in Asia, Africa and South America. Why should it be any more important just because it happens to a Westerner?

Fred, you are absolutely correct. How did she expect those kids to survive by themselves in Africa?

I could understand it if she left them in Bangkok, but Africa? What was she thinking?
