    Holy %$*&!!!!!!!!!!

    She knew Gavaghan because he betted on the ponies in Delaware? Hello!

    Ummmmmm, that guy doesn't have an entirely clean record.

    That is some of the craziest %$*& I have ever read.

    Police searched Gavaghan's residence in Northeast Philadelphia and found evidence the adoption was to take place. Well not an adoption.

    Wismer did such a good job of acting that even our newscaster Claudia Gomez felt sorry for her. The tables have turned.

    This baby was born addicted to opiates. According to this article Gavaghan the "adoptive" father is a known seller of opiates. The baby had to stay in the hospital for four days while Wismer left the hospital and went to a casino in Philly. Gavaghan had to pay an additional $2,000 to have his name put on the birth certificate.

    All this and this chick was talking about it on Facebook?

    Police: Del. woman tried to sell baby for Disney World trip

    Gloria Hockman, director of communications for the National Adoption Center, said the sale "certainly is an unwholesome and inappropriate way to deal with a baby you don't want to raise," she said.

    She also said it is not uncommon.

    "Lots of people are waiting in line for babies," she said. "This is not the first time that I've heard about someone paying for a baby. If her motive is to make $15,000, that's going to be an issue. But if she thought that the man would make a good father, she could have taken him to an agency or to an attorney who could have arranged a home study."
