a souless human being....
I'm nothing special, but I've had a productive life with a daughter and two grandkids.
My brother has raised a son on his own, worked at a HVAC duct plant for 10 years saving enough money to quit, and get a history degree from a local university known for producing good teachers. He wants to teach HS history and coach wrestling.
She lives within a 30 minute drive. We've went out of our way. Her loss. She's about to be old, and is gonna come to regret her decision.
Well, at least she knew her attitude was wrong and tried to do something about it.
But she sounds like your basic upper-middle class parent, and I’m puzzled as to why she didn’t seek out a medical evaluation earlier. Most modern parents in that group are so obsessed with medical diagnoses and love to talk about them so much that it’s hard to believe they’d let the chance to have a child with a syndrome slip by like that...
Better late than never, I guess. And it sounds as if things will improve for this little girl now.
I think she's seeing what she wants to see.
Sadly she is not only not unique, she is not even unusual.
There are many like her even within the church.
Love isn’t just a feeling, it’s also a choice.
Give my Wife and I her child, we’ll love her.
I can actually see how the undiagnosed medical problem could interfere with the mother infant bond because it interfered with nursing which plays a huge bio and neuro chemical role.
If this ill child had been 2nd born instead of first born, I’m guessing the mother would have been way more forceful with both her husband and doctors in seeking for a diagnosis because she would have known from the beginning that something was right based on previous experience with a healthy infant.
As it was I bet she had a lot of her gut feelings downplayed as “nervous, new mother” syndrome. The cognitive dissonance this created was displaced onto the relationship with the child.
Well, it did say that she had suggested to her husband that it might be autism or something, and he rejected the idea that anything was wrong.
A number of people do not like one of their children, The mark of character is making sure the child never discovers this fact.
that bitch doesn’t deserve to be loved by her child.
Love is not a FEELING, which comes and goes. It is a decision to put your stupid self aside and care for a child you have in your care.
Gad, what a STUPID generation.
This is far more common than most people think. I find this on a regular basis in my work. I read the emotional subconscious stored memories of childhood experiences, all the way back to conception. I do this with total strangers without them saying one word. It’s real easy to detect if a child was unwanted by the mother as the child stores the mother’s emotional experiences as their own while they are in the womb.
One of my first cases where I discovered this was with a female university professor about 50 years old who was losing it emotionally. I was able to tell her that she was the oldest child and that her mother did not want her. She responded that her mother ended her career and married her father when she became pregnant with her. Each time I touched the stored memory, it physically knocked the woman off her feet. (I do not touch their physical body in any way) This subconscious emotional memory was beating up this woman, even though she had a very loving mother throughout her life. Ends up, her mother who lived in Europe was coming to visit her in two days, thus her emotional eruptions.
I sure would like to hear the child's version of all this.
This woman sounds a lot like my own mother (a story best left untold).
