U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing Temper Tantrum
"Having an instant multicultural family was magical for about two weeks,” says Stacey Conner, a 41-year-old American mom from Spokane, Washington.
After she volunteered in an orphanage in Haiti in 2005, Conner and her husband adopted a 5-year-old Haitian boy named “J.”
Conner claims the boy had attachment disorder and began a strict regimen of attachment parenting of constant surveillance in which a child must often ask for food and water. After two months, J threw a tantrum where he unintentionally hit Conner’s nose with the back of his head.
Conner says the 5-year-old’s strike was accidental, but describes it as “a domestic violence situation. Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even like J.”J was sent to live with another family in the Midwest. Conner’s biological children adjusted seamlessly to life without their adoptive brother. But other people were puzzled. Neighbors who had seen J riding his bike asked, “Where’s your son?” When Conner answered truthfully, “I’d get the most horrified stares, so I’d keep walking. And I didn’t tell many out-of-town friends or extended family for months.”Despite such events, the Conners were approved by local social workers to become a foster family, and in October 2013 received a 3-month-old boy as their first placement.
white people will let their white kids karate chop them in the throat and call them names in public, but a black child becomes naturally upset after you treat the kid like a grown criminal/animal and you just give them away. go it. sounds reasonable.
"i’d get the most horrified stares"
This is why we don’t trust y’all white savior “oh check out this profile pic of me and these smiling poor brown children. You can tell I really made a difference” asses
The fact that for the most part these people are allowed to do shit like this with no legal punishment or recourse on behalf of the children being abused is mind boggling.
She literally treated that child like a dog.
Actually no, she’d probably treat a dog better.
Accidents like that happen all the time with children, and her first instinct is to stop loving the child and give it away?
I hope that beautiful boy is okay, and with a family that treats him like gold.
Welcome to the adoption industry where they give zero fucks about the well being of the child.
Jesus christ, what a sociopath. My mother had her own batch of crazy to deal with but I can at least say she never just gave me away when I pissed her off (which was often). I can name countless times I accidentally beamed my mom in the head while throwing a fit, and this lady actually thinks this was some kind of act of purposeful violence? She shouldn’t be legally allowed to raise ANY children, even her biological ones, if she’s going to be that rash with them.
I just need someone to sit Derek Hale down and tell him that he’s amazing and kind and brave. That all the mistakes he did were with the best intentions and he shouldn’t feel guilty about what happened, that he deserves to be happy and selfish sometimes. That he isn’t a sacrifice or someone that no one cares about, that there are people who would care if he died or left and that he surrounded by people who love him.

Firefighters are some badass mutha fuckas
firefighters are incredibly under appreciated, this is sadly the first appreciation post to them and we need more of these, they literally walk through hell to pick up people and pull them out, they are all Castiels if all civilians are Deans, and they save animals, treating all like humans, i have never heard of a firefighter that has chosen not to save someone for there race or sex or sexuality or anything, a human is a human and an animal is an animal, i love these people and they don’t deserve to be ignored as much as they are
