Buying A Baby

Kiera's mother was offered $10,000 to give up her rights and let her aunt and uncle adopt her. I am so angry on so many levels. I am grateful her mother informed me immediately and wanted to know if she should call the police. I consulted with my BIL and she will report it tomorrow. She is willing to call their offer and let them pay her or sign anything to prove their horrible intentions. She promised she would never actually do it and wants her here with us. I believe her b/c I was the first person she called to help her figure out what to do. I also explained I wasn't worried b/c she couldn't actually do it without seeing a judge first due to her particular situation and our LG. These people are supposed to be Christians, he is a youth pastor. If you remember he also had some child abuse charges somewhere in his history.

I will be calling the CW that loved them so much tomorrow. She was very happy that the baby was here but insisted they were wonderful, too.

Kath, I am so glad you handled your situation so well. I don't post your comments b/c I worry they are too personal. Please let me know how it goes.

Gross. I am glad you are reporting it. Unfortunately, it seems that is what most adoption agencies do anyway. They just get licensed to sell babies. I know, a lot are legitimate...but money shades things in off-color ways...

Do you have any other verification that this happened, outside of what Keira's mother told you? I know it's probably true, but there's a certain Friends episode that comes to mind...

Holy crap!

Yes, her friend Amanda was there with her. She was screaming in the background to her mother the same things that I was being told. It was very upsetting to both girls.

Wow. Thank goodness you're able to get this reported and dealt with. How scary!

Thank God her mother told you. How awful. The actions of some people in this world never fail to fill me with despair.

Sorry if I've already asked...how old is Kiera's mom?

She just turned 23, I think.
