I wonder who paid for the airline tickets to Nigeria? It doesn't sound like the woman holds many high-paying jobs.
Pastor Beemer was just interviewed on CNN. The story about the treatment of these children--and the effort Beemer went through to save them--brought tears to my eyes.
$512x7x12 ! Dang! She was robbing us all blind!
Living in a boarding house, but driving a late model Mercedes. There's some priorities for you.
This woman is the quintessential 'welfare queen'. Getting $3600 a month for kids she shipped off to Africa and abandoned.
And the kids aren't even from Africa. They had to be frightened and feeling completely rejected because of this selfish woman. Stories don't get much more disturbing than this.
Houston CPS cut off funds to the woman in March when they learned the children were not living with her.
Apparently it didn't occur to Houston CPS to contact police and the FBI about 4 missing children!
The woman, who divorced in 1990, was approved for the adoptions after passing home studies conducted by Spaulding for Children, a nonprofit child welfare agency in Houston, Olguin said.
Lemme guess: this outfit gets paid a fee for each home it approves.
'No magic number' Joel and Olguin said it is not out of the ordinary to place as many as seven children with a single parent who is seeking to adopt them.
Of course not. Why would it be, when all CPS cares about it collecting their bonus for getting children "adopted"?
Newt Gingrich was right. We need orphanages, and we need them urgently. It's time to stop propagating the lie that there are plenty of adoptive homes available for all the kids who need them. And the "pro-life" movement needs to recognize and end its complicity in the spread of this lie.
There's a special place in hell for people like this.
How did I know she was getting a fat monthly check for each and every one of these kids. Dumping them in Nigeria was a great idea from her point of view. She'd never have to spend a penny on them. Nobody would check up on her...she was home free. Too bad that missionary found them. The woman should be jailed for years. Child endangerment, abandonment, stealing, a whole host of charges.
I would take them.
I wonder how much this woman paid to adopt all of these kids. A friend of mine paid 10,000 to adopt two girls from Russia.
