Mormon idiot I know (no longer calling him a friend) started telling people at work that he's becoming grandfather again, pretty soon. (Note: five years ago he freaked out about becoming a grandfather at 46.)
Well, his 23 year old daughter and son-in-law are adopting the SIL's brother's son. The brother just abandoned the 10 year old. This stupid family is martyring themselves to look better. They're raising the (at least) three they already have in absolute poverty and now they're adding this 10 year old. I am guessing the daughter has already had her fourth child and probably fifth, but Mormon idiot caught wind of people ridiculing him behind his back at work for encouraging his daughter to have kids in poverty.
My question is: what the hell is the benefit of having such a dumb ass parent? He has his CPA and masters in accounting, has experienced economic hardship after economic hardship, had to be talked into a retirement plan that wasn't Mormon run (and didn't have those friendly hidden fees and charges put on him by his Mormon brethren) while at the same time he sits (like a dunce) watching his young daughter and son-in-law (both with no education) having child after child in poverty on his meager army salary.
What the hell is happenin?
Comments to comment from closed that. My issue isn't with adopting an abandoned child; it's a problem when the mother and father seeking to adopt are living in poverty themselves. Do you really think there are no other people in Florida that will and want to adopt this 10-year-old?
Do you, as a father, feel your 23-year-old daughter who's already raising 3 to 5 children of her own in poverty, might not be the best option?
Hell, we hear stories about the crazy cat woman living with 100 cats. I guess there are stricter pet owner expectations on this board.
Lastly, if you feel that raising a child in poverty is okay (It isn't!), I have swampland in Arizona that I'd like to sell to you.
