Another baby.... REALLY?

My sis is almost 37 and had her first kid last year almost the same time I am due with mine.(same sex) So I asked could I buy all her stuff. She says no she is keeping it hoping she will have another. She almost died having this last one because she refused the c-section that the dr was telling her she really needed to have for and the babies safety. Not only that but she has 3 adopted kids that she says now that she has had her own she wishes she could give back to the state. She has had all 3 more than 5 yrs. I can hardly talk to her anymore because of this. Should I just let it go?

  • Let it go... obviously she is living in her little bubble where everthing is about her... If you did say something then it would just be a waste of time and breath.

  • That's terrible. You don't go adopting kids and then try to give them back when you have your own! I would feel really bad for the kids, but I would let it go. You can find great stuff at tag sales and consignment shops.

  • Let it go don't waste your time worrying about other people's lives, just live your own

  • Let it go! She is very wrong to say she wants to give the children back but if that's the person she wants to be, you can't do anything about it

  • I say let it go, and be there for the kids as much as you can. If she's ready to give them back to the state after having her own, I can't imagine that she's treating them fairly.

  • that makes me so sad for those adopted kids, enough so where it would make me unable to talk to her anymore, sister or not. these aren't dolls, they are little people with feelings and need nurture, to say she wants to give them back made me sick for them
