Returns Not Valid After Six Years

So this story popped up in my email. You know the kind: Child ungovernable! bad product! give us a refund…and then some!

So I Googled the APs’ names and found this. By their own account, this boy seemed to be adjusting splendidly at that time.

What a difference six years in a loving adoptive home makes! Kinda makes an urchin wonder who gave this kid to these people…and what happened to him under their roof. I would say I’m trying to imagine being eight years old and expected to call a 69-year-old stranger Daddy, but I’m not, because I don’t want to. I don’t want to.

“Love the boy dearly,” my ass. “Ruined [y]our lives,” my ass. Also, what does “he was a risk for severe mental illness” mean? I think it means you have grown weary of your expensive toy, because every human ever born is “a[t] risk for severe mental illness.” If this case is what it seems to be, I hope the adoption activist community and cosmic justice will get all over this couple like stink on shit.

    There’s too much “W” in “TF.”

    Actually, unfortunately, “Returns Are Valid After Six Years.” If the children had been adopted from foster care they could be turned in at any time. Sadly it happens a lot. You see, ALL children adopted from foster care are adopted as a “High Risk” placement. In reality, the AP’s can turn them in at any time; and they do. When many of these children hit puberty they have severe identity issues. Many issues are related to not looking like anyone in their family. There are now counselors specializing in these issues.
    The natural families have no idea about anything the chid/ren are going through, and they’re placed back in the system in group homes. The families believe they’re in a loving forever family and to leave well enough alone. It is awful.
