Back up on the soapbox...

All I wanted to do was leisurely veg on the computer, reply to some emails, and snooze some time away until Kitchen Nightmares came on.

But no. Nope. Didn't happen.

Because as I perused through some posts on the Triplet Connection, I was encountered by a thread that made me actually think that someone, somewhere, left the key in the lock at the loony bin.

"Planning to give one child out of my set of triplets".....away for adoption to a family member.

WHAT THE (fill in the blank with your own choice of colorful word)?

This person and her husband are "seriously" considering giving away one of their unborn triplets to a family member and spouse who have had trouble conceiving for 10+ years. Don't get me wrong- I am thumbs up for charitable acts, but this takes it a tad too far. We are not talking about having extra puppies around the house, these are babies! That you birthed!

And the kicker- "Moreover, we had planned only for one more child and I feel that God is giving me more than we desired so that we can spread this happiness in someone elses life too."

The sentence would read more appropriately if the true wording stated that someone is dealing with some serious selfishness issues and wants to justify it by hiding behind "God" so they don't have to endure personal attacks on a message board geared at triplet + parents. To post this on a triplet forum is the equivalent of going on an attachment parenting website and singing the praises of practicing the CIO method. Be prepared for the slingshots.

I think I just vomited in my mouth.

I am without words.

"I am cleaning out my closets and have some sweaters that might fit you. Oh, and also...would you like one of my children?"

How will they decide which one they give away? The girl? The bald one? The smallest one?

This is disgusting and they don't deserve any of those babies.

I wish I could take all 3 of them.
