Thank you for your kind words. It is nice to know that two people with different beliefs (not all beliefs of course) can discuss things rationally and politely.
"But I am honestly and truly perplexed at the thought of someone not careing,knowing,and loving thier own children enough to be involved in thier lives."------------>>regarding this comment...I am sad to say that growing up in a relatively middle class community, I had an equal amount of friends that were being raised by terrific and terrible parents. My parents were and are terrific and often tried their best to step in and help those children that weren't so lucky. I am truly an opitmistic person who generally believes in the good of humanity, but I have to ask...where are you living? Have you truly not seen this type of neglect ever in your life??
