    IIRC its the adoptive dad who is now divorced from Terri who pays the child support regularly for his adopted son, even tho they are not still together. He is one off those rare decent men who lives up to his responsibilities. Refreshing, IMO.

    That's a great question. Is that considered a felony? It might also depend on what kind of background checks are done on substitutes. When I moved to my present state they did a background check which checked for a felony conviction...when I renewed my license I also had to do a background check with the state's child protection service division.

    Lots of women give up their careers or never really get a hefty start on them when they have children. They do this because they think it is important for their children to be raised by a stay at home mom.

    If I had a dollar for every time someone has said that I wasted my education and ruined my career by staying home with my kids, I'd be rich.

    I don't think it is a waste, and I don't judge others for making different choices.

    In many single-income families, money is a big issue, btw. It is in ours, and we are far from being the only ones. The only way it works is by being frugal - needs are met, wants are not (especially for the parents). I have frequently gone without things other people take for granted so that I can use the money for my kids' wants. It is a constant juggling act, but it is my choice (until now when I couldn't get a job if I wanted one because there aren't any).

    Perhaps w/ all the negative press SM is getting the article is factual but was written to put a more positive spin on SM. She sure needs it at this point.
    God forbid my personal life was put up there for the world to judge, I would be mortified, and curl up and die. I am a good person but Lord knows have not been perfect. Few of us could stand up to that kind of scrutiny, I think.

    It would be just plain horrible, especially on top of the nightmare of having a missing child.

    Every named source in that story was a friend or family member of Terri's. I would be interested in a friend of Desiree's description of the events surrounding her divorce from Kaine and Terri's moving in with him.
    I agree with your characterization of it as "storybook."

    BBM But what kind of wife/mom would she look like to her husband if she did that? If she is the one responsible for Kyron's disappearance then it's not very hard to believe she hated/resented him. This would be the ultimate evil. A lot more so than if a stranger sex offender abducted him. :cow:

    I had no choice but to go to school (as a single parent) and get my nursing degree. Before that I was a waitress and that was NOT paying the bills. My degree enabled me to raise my kids alone and in a decent area, good schools, etc. Had I met a rich guy who wanted to take me and 3 kids on, I think I would have still worked. BUT my kids were not small when I graduated nursing school, they were 7, 8, and 10. I would have loved to have been a stay at home mom when they were small. JMO

    BTW, I cannot believe that LE would spend the money for Blackhawk helicopters and then continue to search Sauvie if they don't have a darn good reason.

    Money is tight nowadays.

    I am amazed that people give more credence to blogger opinions posted on FB or random comments responding to an article than to the article itself! Unlike opinions -- dates of marriage, college, births, and a time-line of events can be substantiated through a Google search. This article says that Deseriee left the country to Canada for treatment of life-threatening kidney failure. She returned with $30,000 in medical bills. Terri, a friend, moved in to help with child care. The women have been friends a long time. Why is this information being dissed as clever, fairytail like? Why is this any less realistic than a random opinion? moo mho

    It may be easy to sell a child there, but how would one go about it?

    Your average middle class mother, it seems to me, would have no idea how to do that. I wouldn't. I don't think it is as simple as merely standing on a street corner in a bad part of town and asking passersby if they want to buy a child.

    Or am I just naive and most people know how to go about selling children?

    Not only that, but wouldn't a child who would definitely be searched for not be the best buy? If I were buying a child, I'd want to buy one that no one cares about. Otherwise, the risk to me would be far too high.

    Grandma... :laugh: BRB ..... That is a joke :) There are hundreds of articles on Kyron, and I am still looking for the article about Terri calling from across the gym. I know it is there ...I read it, it was in some of the older articles when the school starting speaking out. I will find it !!!! :crazy:
