Just One More...

Tony has always wanted a little girl... and EVERYONE who knows him... knows that. But unlike him, it's a passing thought for me. I really only wish that we had one when I'm out shopping, or when a great song comes out, or when I think; maybe, just maybe... we could have Just One More because some &#(%*%$ people really do NOT DESERVE TO BE PARENTS! I mean... they don't even deserve to inhale oxygen to sustain their own lives... much less anything else.

I had to fill out more paper work on a little girl (one of 7 children in this particular family) because ... she NEEDS TO BE PULLED OUT OF THE HELL she currently lives in.

Mind you, her "biological" DNA donors are already in jail for their last"great parenting efforts." But what does our great system do, put them with "relatives"... who continue the abuse. So now, the children are split between "other relatives," where the neglect is so profound... they make the DNA donors look like the 'lesser of 2 evils.' WHY is that? Is that really the best we can do?

I know you can't save them all... but in this case... I really would just like to have "one more." But that's not even good enough because there's 4 older kids (3 in another town), this girl's twin sister, and a young toddler who also DESERVES TO GET OUT OF THE HELL THEY LIVE IN...

Tony get's frustrated because I can't just let it go... I just don't know how!

So, so sad. Rachel, I don't know how you do it!

I agree with Jenny,I don't know how you do it. I could never do your job. It breaks my heart to hear about this stuff. Your students are lucky to have such a caring teacher. Hang in there.

Love the music! Great choices of tunes.

It's like parenting- one day at a time, and some times are much better than others.

But I love it... almost all of the time because they teach me great lessons about life.

That, makes me the lucky one.
