“Everything you say is possible. Its also possible that the state held this kid in limbo for so long that he developed physical and emotional problems and then became impossible to place. It happens all the time.”

LOLseeker on Oct 28, 2013 at 05:52:00

“Yeah, that's also a possibility. I hope we hear about his successful adoption into a great family in future. Like a lot of older orphans he could just 'make his own family' (partner, kids, etc) but that's not the same as having a parental figure or two and possibly adoptive siblings as well. Hope he gets all he needs and wants.”

“Actually it is like a whole line of folks are waiting to adopt. Why do you think so many foreign babies are brought to America?

My point is he should have been adopted out when he was a baby instead of waiting so long that problems developed because he did not have a family.”

LOLseeker on Oct 25, 2013 at 18:38:15

“That line of folks waiting to adopt foreign babies is not the same as a line of folks waiting to adopt "home grown" babies. So that comment still stands. There was no long line waiting for babies like him.

Yeah, he should have been adopted as a baby, but the world's full of 'could have and should have' --- the fact remains that there's not a great amount of people keen to adopt a black kid whose mother was a drug addict and thief. Rightly or wrongly, many people believe 'like parent, like child'.

Also, the problems he developed could have been obvious from day one in his life. Even a baby can have rage issues and be obese. He's a prime candidate for having had that, given his mother's background. For all we know he was also born addicted. There's a chance he wasn't in good enough condition to show for adoption when still in that stage people prefer.”

“I see no evidence that hew was addicted as a baby.

He was not an obese baby.”

LOLseeker on Oct 25, 2013 at 18:42:29

“You don't see any evidence he wasn't addicted as a baby.

You don't have any evidence that he wasn't an obese baby.

You also don't know that he wasn't a baby with rage issues. Either way, fact remains, he didn't get adopted, and without further information speculating on why not is rather pointless.

You seem to be taking this somewhat personally. I'm just pointing out the obvious, not making slurs against him.”

LOLseeker on Oct 24, 2013 at 21:05:23

“His mother was a drug addict. If she did drugs while pregnant there is every chance he was born addicted.

It's a guarantee that her drug abuse harmed him in some way, even if he wasn't born addicted.

Also, one of the typical damages of drug abuse is underweight or overweight offspring, and yes, they do tend to start life under or over weight.

Do you actually have any experience in these areas, or are you disagreeing for the fun of it?”

“Most healthy babies that are offered for adoption early enough are adopted.”

LOLseeker on Oct 24, 2013 at 20:56:27

“That's hardly a quantifier --- 'most' babies put up 'early enough' are adopted. That could mean anything. We're talking about babies here, it's not like they're babies for a long time.”

“He did not have these issuex when he was a baby.”

LOLseeker on Oct 23, 2013 at 17:57:14

“Most babies put up for adoption are never adopted. It's not like a whole line of folks are waiting to view every single baby needing a family. It's far more likely than not that he was already showing his issues before he became a teenager. He's just been handed from foster home to foster home.”

LOLseeker on Oct 23, 2013 at 17:54:34

“Yes, he had many of those issues as a baby. He was born black, to a mother who was a drug addict and convict. Her addiction issues may have ruined his health from his infancy onwards.

As for the other issues, he could have been, and very likely was, an obese child, with rage issues and poor academic performance. Such are the fallout damages typical to many drug-abuser's kids.

He never had a good shot, but I sure hope he gets one now.”

“"He knew little about his mother, a drug addict and a convicted thief, and has himself grappled with academic, rage and weight issues."

Plus, he's black.

In a nutshell, I'd think these are the main reasons he's been passed over by prospective parents.”
