you can't fix stupid

and stupid people should not breed - it's not fair to their offspring

my niece (Dee) had a baby this week. He'll be kept in NICU for 7 days. Because she didn't get any pre-natal care. Why? "The office was too far away."

my nephew and his wife are also expecting any day. His wife offered to drive Dee to the doctor...because Dee has no license. But Dee was just too lazy to make an appointment.

Why does Dee have no license? She got a ticket in another state and "somebody told me that as long as I didn't go back to that state, it didn't matter if I didn't pay the fine." I guess Dee missed the computer revolution. GA suspended her license.

Dee has no job. She's single. The baby's father is also unemployed. And Dee has a daughter. The father of that one has never wanted anything to do with his daughter.

so this poor little newborn is in NICU because of his mother's dumba$$ choices. I know what you're thinking...teenagers just aren't responsible enough to have kids. Babies having babies.

Dee is FREAKIN' ***32*** years old!

at this point, I have no hope that she will ever grow up. I have a 40 yr old brother who does the same stupid things.

hey, they are adults. If they want to totally mess up their own lives, go ahead. But don't bring any kids into the world. And quit expecting your family to support you. Dee lives with her dad; my brother lives with my dad.

Fortunately, Dee's dad can pay her medical bills. And the hospital bill for the baby.

I just hope that somehow these children can rise above their horrible parents (my brother has a son) and beat the odds.

okay...rant over emoticon

    There are many people that make mistakes with kids, because they don't come with a parents manual. The example you gave is sad. Not getting pre-natal care makes no sense! Common sense is definitely not one of her qualities. I will pray for that little one. I have a feeling he is going to need lots of prayers!!

    When I was struggling to have kids, I was so angry at parents who were in these exact situations or the ones who delivered 'drug' babies and abandoned them at hospitals. Just urks me to no end!

    Praying for the baby and family!

    I'm so sorry, but glad you got this mess off your chest.....with only a mild rant, go ahead and scream if it will make you feel better.
    I almost fell off my chair when you said this new mother is 32! May God Bless her baby and the other children who are caught-up in this situation. I sure hope someone steps-up and gives the adults a good, swift kick.

    You are absolutely right---no fix for stupid sometimes. But fortunately sounds like these children have some positive influences in their lives which HOPEFULLY makes a difference for them.

    the sin is they actually keep these poor innocent children for the $$$$.. I work with one who had five kids, from three dads.. She does work, but gads, close your legs and open your ears for cripes sake!! SEX+STUPIDITY=PREGNANT!!!!! D*U*H*!!!!!!

    These people get a free ride and I work full time to support them, yet when I was going through a divorce, I had to have major surgery, would not be able to work for two months,, I asked social services if they could just pay my heat and electric bell for those two months, I would sign an affadavit to the effect that I would pay the state back with my first two checks post-op.
    NO WAY! I had a job, and my baby daddy was married to me still Two weeks before our divorce)

    I had to take out a LOAN to pay my bills,, yet this woman got everything free, she gets about $15,000 BACK from her tax return!!!!! They get top of the line medical care, she refuses to go to local docs, so she sees specialists wit hall of these kids, I cannot afford to pay for my life holding meds!!

    Stupid, selfish, thoughtless people should be born sterile!!
