A Rant: This might make me sound horrible, but I don't feel bad for her!
This morning my mom sent me a message on Fb venting because the child hasn't seen a dr since he was two months old. He's obviously way behind on his vaccinations and they can't add him to dad's insurance until after they get the order from the court. And they don't go to court until Feb 7 (I think). My mom is stressing out a little about money, which is understandable, but they can afford it. However, she said she feels bad for my cousin. What I said probably makes me sound like a terrible person, but I said it anyway.
I told my mom I have zero respect for my cousin, M. I don't feel a bit bad for her. I got pregnant at a young age and I'm raising my children. I didn't pawn my children off on whomever would take them. The only thing that girl cares about is herself and whatever swinging dick is the flavor of the week. She hasn't lived with her child since he was less than a month old. Instead, she bed hops all around town and will pop in to see her child when she wants money from whoever has him. Everybody in the family enables her behavior. While I feel terrible for her child, I don't feel bad for her. Her son will grow up thinking his mom didn't care about him because his aunt and uncle raised him. And now she wants another child?!? For the love of all things holy, I hope she's on birth control otherwise my parents will probably end up raising another child that isn't theirs. I feel bad for the people who have to change every aspect of their lives to ensure that this innocent child is taken care of because his worthless mom didn't care enough to grow up and take care of him. It makes me sick. What "mother" (and I use that term very lightly when referencing M) can carry a child for 40 weeks and then just dump them off on whoever will take them?!? She's a poor excuse for a mother.
Like I said, I know it makes me sound bad, but come on!! Nobody should feel bad for her. Her innocent child is the victim in all of this. She's not a damn victim, although she's trying to play that card. Nobody took her child from her. She gave him up. I think it's awesome that my parents stepped up to raise him, but it's still sad that that's what had to happen. Ugh!!!
