“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.”

“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.”

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

“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.”

“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.”
And what exactly does the pro-life movement in the USA have to do with a kidnapping in Greece.”

“Um. Reread the last paragraph. It's actually very clear and self explanatory. HINT: if the pro-life movement actually cared about babies AFTER THEY'RE BORN perhaps less of this type of thing would happen.
