Boy, 5, forced into adoption with gay couple pleads: 'We want to stay with our gran and grandad'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk ^ | January 2009 | By Jonathan Brocklebank and Michael Seamark

Posted on 05/02/2009 8:21:28 PM PDT by Maelstorm

The mother of two children who are being adopted by gay men even though their grandparents want to care for them wept yesterday as she told of her final meeting with her son and daughter.

‘I told them, “Listen, Mummy is not going to see you for a while”,’ she said. Her son replied: ‘But Mummy, I want to come and stay with you and Granny and Grandad.’

Their grandparents spent two years fighting for the right to care for the children, whose 26-year-old mother is a recovering heroin addict. She desperately wanted her parents to look after them.

But social workers said their ages – he is 59 and she is 46 – and their health – he has angina and she is diabetic – ruled them out.

The mother told the Mail that she had been ordered to say her goodbyes to the children last August during a trip to Edinburgh Zoo. ‘They told me not to cry and be strong so as not to upset the children,’ she said. ‘How can you tell a mother that when she’s never going to see her children again?

She voiced her anger at the decision to allow her son and daughter to be fostered by a homosexual couple.

‘I did not under any circumstances want my children to be placed with gay men. I wanted them to have a mum and a dad.

‘They can’t be telling me that, within a 60-mile radius, the only people they could find to look after my children were two men.

‘I’ve got nothing against gay people. I’ve got gay friends, but children need a mum and a dad, not a dad and another dad.

I don’t understand why they won’t let the Grandparents have these children..
Diabetic? Isn’t that being descriminated againast?

The mom is a ‘recovering’ heroin addict?

Nowadays I thought you just about had to be a cannibal to not get your kids.

Ah ha. That’s the argument I’ve always had when Bill O’Reilly has said, “I would rather see two loving gay men adopt a child than two abusive heterosexuals!” Really? That’s the choice? We can’t find any good heterosexual parents, even though gays are 2% of the population and only a small percentage of them even want to adopt?

This is exactly what’s in store for America with gay marriage on the horizon. Children being taken away from loving grandparents, aunts and uncles, and handed over as fresh meat for perverts.

Most 46-year-old diabetics whose disease is under control are not too ill to take care of two children. One assumes that the mother, once rehabilitated, could resume custody. Since when are the wishes (and potential happiness) of the child to be disregarded?

But the prospective adoptive parents are gay men. I mean what choice do they have? A couple of virile gay men to take care of the kids or a couple of elderly grandparents who love kid? This is what you get once you adopt all these “well intentioned nondiscrimination” laws it then makes it extremely difficult not to give those who are of special categories precedence especially if they have some king of sexual peculiarity. This is an old story I missed from the beginning of the year. Isn’t it interesting the media had little time to cover it? No Nancy Grace or and Greta? Not even any Glen Beck or Rush Limbaugh. We are going to lose this battle and find our world remade if we don’t stand up to this. People moan and groan about global warming, well what in the hell do you think Abortion and Gay rights are. They are no better. They started out with the same political pseudo scientific lies the only difference is that far too many Republicans have bought into them because they are cowards and more parasites to the cause than worth anything for as little as they can reason on their own.

The modern left is built on a collection of myths and lies and far too many Republicans who don’t have the intellect or will to challenge them too happy to sip cocktails while sharing a political hot tub with their counterparts on the left. These issues social and fiscal are not different. The same reasoning that supports fiscal policies that work should oppose social systems that don’t. Liberalism has ruined our society and spawned a generation of selfish hedonists whose children are more likely to end up in prison for one reason and one reason alone because they don’t have a mother and a father.

The experiment has failed. It is time to end it.

What a travesty. Parents should have the right to have a say in where their children end up. The kids should have a say as well. Those kids are going to hate those men and the government.

Those grandparents, who are not that old, had better watch it. If they get ill, they’re going to be classified as useless eaters. Angina and diabetes at their ages are not enough to disqualify them from raising those children. They can manage to stay in good enough health for the few remaining years of those kids childhood.

Here, we wouldn’t consider their health problems to be of issue. Over there, even though the health care is free, it has limitations and long wait times for certain things. I wonder if that plays into the equation. I don’t agree with what is happening. I would think the grandparents would be able to care for the kids, and if not, there must be another family that would take them.

What are the grandparents going to do now? It seems like their lives are pretty much over and they are not even old or ill enough for the mercy of an impending death.

I’m certain that the two gay men will drive both children to drug abuse, mental illness, and a whole host of other problems. There is nothing but misery here and there is absolutely no hope. Welcome to hell.

Since their existence is based upon destruction and not procreation, they have to indoctrinate and abuse others into their “lifestyle”. Now they have the force of government on their side.

It’s disgusting. But it’s disgusting all the way around.

Scotland has a lot of social problems, of which this junkie is one.

No matter how badly I think about the social services office (and I do find their actions here appalling)- if this woman hadn’t got herself hooked on heroin she wouldn’t be in this fix in the first place.

I hate junkies. When you see the way they act and the problems they cause in the city it’s difficult to think of them as human.

Having said that. I can tell by looking at the photo that she is indeed recovering from her addiction. Regardless of which woman it is in the photo, she’s got too much meat on her bones to be an active addict.

Leaving the gay couple out of it for the moment- I don’t see how the social services people can justify taking the children away from the grandparents. They’re blood kin. They’re always going to have a more active interest in the welfare of the children than a random couple.

‘Maybe”? The kid will be gay. He’ll notice dad and....dad sodomizing each other and obviously, the kid will not be taught right from wrong so I really do pity the boy. He won’t stand a chance. Just depressing...

As I read the good book he says that of those who would cause a child to sin ( and doing this qualifies ) it would be better for them to have a stone round their neck and be drowned then what he has in store for them.

All I can do is pray for the poor children. And read Psalm 58 last two verses especially regarding the forces that have done this to the children.

My best friend’s sister about 10 years ago had 2 small children and became addicted to cocaine with her husband who died of an OD.

She signed away rights to her parents as she got herself together got off the drugs and such and then stayed with them and her kids while she went to school and got a paralegal degree.

Now 10 years later she is remarried the kids are 16 and 14 and she has 2 with her 2nd husband who is raising the first 2 like his own.

It scares me to think that if she lived in Britian today in the same situation her kids would have been taken away by the Nazi social workers to be given to a state approved home because at the time her father had had a heart attack and her mother had some health issues.

(by the way taking care of the grandkids inspired her dad to lose 75 pounds and her mom to get into shape and they are alive and kicking at 73 and 71)

Disgusting-and will be happening in the US soon.

What the mom, grandparents, and children, are learning; is that they don't count.

The children (all children), are property of the state, and will go where the state says they should go- period.

IIRC about one-third of people over 50 have an issue already with either diabetes or heart trouble.

Does this mean that CPS would step in to terminate parental custody based on the health of the parents? Scary!

Found while googling:

The Adoption of an Oppressive Law

So McClintock was absolutely right to characterize same-sex adoption placements as a social experiment, with the most vulnerable of children used as guinea-pigs. It is now clear that the DCA is not only happy for the most vulnerable of children to be used in this way – it insists upon it. Anyone who objects cannot serve on adoption panels. There is thus no possibility whatever of conscientious objection.

In Britain it is the Labour Party, in the US it is the Democratic Party. Same difference, just an ocean in between. The far out leftist ideas are generated on one side of the Atlantic or the other and then passed to the other western nations. This is an anti-God ideology that is being spread throughout the western world.

The Labour Party, Democratic Party and other left parties in other countries are the incubators of all of the far left ideas. They conceive these ideas and then they put them into practice through the law.

Values count, it isn’t just about taxes and money. You northeast Republicans, take a good look at this and see the future.

The lesson here is simple. Be a good compliant citizen and you get walked on all over. Organize into an angry, violent identity group, and you get your way. Muslims practice this. Blacks practice this. Homosexuals practice this. Everybody, but the whites practice this. I never hear the English taking Muslim children and handing them over to Jews, Christians, homos. I bet they would go out of their way to make sure a Muslim child got placed in a Muslim home. I haven't heard of a Child of a lesbian being taken and place in a Christian home. It's not going to change until the ordinary citizen organizes and fights these identity groups.
