Seems like all the time I read about women and men trying to brush off children. I hear about women who are living with a man, and trying to figure out how to get his 'difficult' child out of their lives since they child may be a bad influence on the children that she plans to have in the future. Being as the birth mom is a drug addict.
Now I'm reading posts about a woman whose husband got a call that he has a child that he didn't know about, and it seems that the father and his now wife want to turn their back on the child!
I can't understand this at all! this is a child who needs loving adults! If I was stepmom to the child whose mom is a drug abuser, I wouldn't be fighting to get this child out of my life, I'd want DH to fight for custody!
When I was engaged to DH, I found out that his ex gf had a child. I asked if he was sure it wasn't his. He was, he hadn't seen her at all from over a year before the child was born. In truth, I was disappointed. She's a wonderful little girl. I would have loved to have made her a addition to the family extended or otherwise.
I am the 'auntie' to so many kids, when I see a kid my reaction is to be there for them, I can't understand the desire to turn your back on a child. A child is a child, brought into the world by the actions of a adult. Planned or not, why do so many adults want to brush off that responsibility?
So are there others out there or am I really that strange?
Sorry, but I just don't understand.
