I know I initially railed on Madonna's fitness...

But at this point would it not be better to leave the child with her? If she is even a half way decent mother it seems unfair to rip the child from it's new comfortable surroundings. My main problem was how the adoption (and reasons for the adoption) were handled now that that has already been botched this 'show' investigation leaves me just as queasy as her initial adoption.

I have never heard of any major flaws in the way she raises her biological kids - so though I think this kid will have a weird/even potentially messed up life I still think it would be better for him to stay than to be pulled out and sent by to a father that has pretty much let him go.

Of course if there is some major flaw in Madonna's parenting they should not let her have a child, but I think the bigger thing that should be investigated are all the inherent flaws in a system that allowed a rich celebrity to cut the line as if she were merely taking 20 items in the 10 items or less line.

My position is if she is willing and able to look after a kid, they should give her as many as she wants. Heck the kid is better off any day living with her than in some orphanage. All this controversy is silly.

I think adoption laws sometimes delay people who would make great parents, instead leaving kids in the hands of people who temporarily care for them as a source of income. The statistics of children in canada abused whilst in temporary foster care is a ridiculous 70%. (stat courtesy of my women's center training.)

About Me

Cali-J ueber alles in der Welt. Some think that I am mean; (I call them friends), in fact I am not that mean. What I am is sarcastic and dry to the sandpaper level. I have friends that I have never said a kind word to their face, but I praise to the ends of the earth to anyone I know and will defend them to the end. That’s just how I roll! My boys know that I am down for them, my girls know that no matter what I will keep them safe (and occasionally flirt with them [If you are a female friend of mine and think I haven’t flirted with you it just means you didn’t notice, it was extremely subtle or…not yet ]). No one is safe from my sarcasm even my own parents; hence of course as a kid I spent a significant amount of time in punishment. I treat people with respect if I think they deserve it – everyone starts off with the same amount of respect from me (a lot). You don’t need to earn my respect; you have to keep my respect.
