    Angry Adoptive mother admits STARVING children pleads guilty to ONE count!

    http://www.courierpostonline.com/app...511110378/1006



    Under the agreement, the prosecutor's office will dismiss another 27 counts in the indictment, including all those charging aggravated assault. The one count she pleaded guilty to was amended to cover her lack of care for all four boys. It spans the period between December 1991 and October 2003, when she and her husband were arrested after a neighbor found their oldest adoptive son, Bruce, then 19, digging in a trash can for food. Bruce and his three adoptive brothers -- ages 14, 10 and 9 -- were among 13 people living in the Jacksons' rented home on White Horse Pike, which sometimes had no heat or electricity because of the parents' failure to pay utility bills

    This is the case where 19 year old Bruce weighed in at 45 pounds when found looking in a neighbors trash can for food!!!!

    OK, how many adoptive parents are we looking at now? Not the ones that provide personal funds to their children but the ones that rely on State funded supplements. The ones that adopt to receive the benefits.

    Almost all children adopted from state foster care receive state funded subsidy's. I adopted my son and just because he was of mixed race he receives it. I use it to help cover the cost of private school.

    Clearly, I did not mean any harm only that some of these families use the funds as their only income. Kudos to you for using the funds in the best light and to give your child an upper hand in this world. Please do not be offended by my post as I meant it only for the scammers and abusers.

    No no no, I wasn't offended at all! I was just telling ya

    Actually, I was offended when they told me my son was classified "special needs" because of his mixed heritage! Sounded crazy & racist to me! But who in their right mind would turn down almost $700 a month that you could used for your child's best interest? I divide the payment in half every month. Half goes to his school and the other in a college fund.

    I saw MANY foster parents and adoptive parents begin to collect children for the money. You can tell who they are because they usually quit work and drive a really great car! They are also the folks that take vacations without their kids all the time.

    "Special needs" because of mixed heritage? Now that offends me. Don't turn down a dime.....remember the people who are in charge of politics right now. You are providing for a possible exceptional human being...a someone who may never have had a chance. A someone I might just vote for one day...you let me know when he is running and I know with the parenting that goes with this beloved child the world will be a much better place. Bless you everyday of the week.

    That's a great use for the money! This child is blessed to have you as his mother.

    Those are the ones I worry about. They're in it for the money only.

    it makes me angry to think that a mother could do that to her own children... These parents receive allowances for the children that are often more than enough to survive on. These parents shoukd be ashamed of themselves... and should never be allowed to act as parents again.

    What a good Mom you are Linda. Many children of mixed parentage are difficult to place. But I don't know how they came up with him being a "special needs" child because of his racial heritage. If that were the case, my whole darn family fall under special needs category. I check off everything listed on forms asking for race. LOL!! Our family get togethers look more like company picnics. From the darkest Black to Blue eyed blondes, and everything in between, all blood related. My sister's daughter looks like Trya Banks, my brother's daughter looks like Brittany Spears, and my Mother is Japanese...go figure LOL.

    Linda,

    Please do not answer if this is too personal...
    Although I am offended that social services said he was special needs due to his heritage...
    Is it possible his mother was using drugs or alcohol while she was pregnant?
    SOme other factor they relayed badly to you??

    Nope, I even knew his birth mother, I had her as an emergency placement for three weeks when she was 12, I must have made some impression because when she gave birth to my son at age 14 she insisted he come to me I begged her to come with him, but she refused. Life in the "hood" was more exciting I suppose. She was just very young and immature and a foster child her entire life. Sadly she has had a child every year since, all are in fostercare.
