Slayer, the family has been trying for some 3 YEARS to get her, and the courts agreed. The foster family, by refusing to honor the courts decision effectively kidnapped her for 3 years. Then blamed it on the government for traumatizing this girl. The fosters knew from the very begining that she would go..either to the biological father, or this family. The foster family refused to help her understand what was happening, then threw a baby temper tantrum in a selfish attempt to get their way.

I’m glad to FINALLY see someone else with this opinion. The harm that has been done to this child is by the foster parents. They knew from the begining that she was to go with either the family that she is with now, or her biological father. THEY brought this upon themselves. What did they want? To adopt a child without the hard part of finding the child? To pretend to want to be fosters, so the gov’t will pay them to adopt? They KNEW that this was not to be their child. They are spoiled brats, all about me attitude, and couldn’t see past their own selfish wants to prepare this child for the future they KNEW was in store for her.

They tried to, and was denied. Also, the blood family has been trying for some 3 years to get her, and reunite with her blood family, and siblings. The foster family has ignored multiple agencies and courts that have been trying to place her and ruled for her to be placed with blood family, and the foster family refused. How do you think the blood family feels? By this logic, someone can kidnap your child, raise them for 5 or 6 years, and should keep them, because that’s who she called mom and dad.

There isn’t enough information here. I have done research, and think that this foster family is out of line. Foster families are there for TEMPORARY placement. They knew, going into this, that she would be placed with father, or his relatives. They KNEW this at the begining. She has a full sister there, and one right down the road. They made this worse by promising the child things that were out of their power to provide. By throwing a tantrum, and a spectacle they made this worse. Being with BLOOD FAMILY is most important. They refused to listen to 4 or 5 groups, including the courts, and drug this out an extra 3 years. She could, and should, have been with the blood family for the last 3 years. If my nephew couldn’t take care of his kids, you are darn straight that I’d fight for them, especially if I already have one of the siblings! Talk about spoiled brat, “all about me” , aren’t they unfair to ME! attitude! Their job was to make life easier for this child, and instead they made it worse. Their foster accreditation should be stripped. This blood family wasn’t strangers. She has gotten to know them, in person, video chats, and phone calls. She deserves to know about her family, stories, history, and should get the chance to grow up with her siblings. Period.
Foster families frequently become ADOPTIVE families....They had already applied to adopt this child. You can't reason with a 3 year old and expect them to understand....she's had been with them for 3 years (as no one stepped up to adopt earlier....EVEN those distant native American relatives who skyped frequently, UNTIL adoption processes started). Now she is almost 6 years old and you STILL cannot explain to a child of this age that hey, you are just a temporary kid to us, we are just temporary parents to you...you are totally insane. INSANE
Do you think that the child's relationship with the foster family over the last 4 years trumps her 1.5% heritage?

Most comments have been about Homosexuals, and whether it is “right”, or “wrong”, but you are missing the point on this one!
The CEO is RIGHT!!! if you don’t like the practices, don’t support the company! Just remember that, and be ready to quote it when the shoe is on the other foot!

My daughter LOVES football. We have a big (I mean HUGE) family, and at any family event, she would play football with the family (almost completely boys–most of which were in football themselves) and she held her own. I allowed her to play in the local pee-wee, mostly so that she’d get hurt, and get it out of her system. She is now 3 years, with some injuries, and still loves it. She’s one of the better players on the team, and we haven’t, and don’t plan on, insisting that any rules change. I do agree that –in most cases– girls aren’t able to compete, but she is a big girl, and is still growing-and VERY muscular, and as long as she earns her spot, she’ll keep playing. I don’t expect anyone—and don’t WANT anyone–to change the game, or rules. There are some boys that are not good candidates for football, and there are a few–select few–girls that can hold their own.
She has been in Judo and Tae Kwon Do since she was 5 so that I didn’t have to worry about her protecting herself. She is a tough cookie.
Good for you. Good for your daughter, too.
I grew up with one girl in particular that played baseball, soccer, basketball, and football on on boy's teams until she was highschool- aged... she then switched to girl's teams and absolutely dominated.
She got a full ride to a Div.-1 school for soccer and then played professionally.
PS: She was a knockout- too. Very pretty girl.

This is not the first time that Progressive has gotten themselves into hot water over not paying valid claims. Just the first one with a member of GBTV. They are for non-standard and high risk individuals–High risk that you won’t get paid!!!

I have advised my children on what to watch out for. I have advised that appearences matter. I have also advised that if a cop approaches you—or worse points a gun at you, that you need to make sure that you raise your hands, and help them understand that you are not a threat. I have taught my children to watch around, and to listen –at least to some extent– to their intuition.
I have taught these things to my children because it makes sense–partly because the oldes 2 are girls. They know that appearences matter–if they dress in a revealing way, someone may get the wrong impression. That it is not safe to go to your car at night at… whatever store… if there’s a van next to their car–when there’s no other cars around.
Your appearence matters. My husband has tattoos, yet when I see a heavily tattoo’d individual, I’m nervous at first, and pay attention around me. If I see someone who might be following me (I don’t care what color) and their pants are hanging to their knees, I’m careful (although it will be harder for them to run after me!)
Some of this is true regardless of color, race, heritage, ethnicity…whatever.
If racism is going to end, it must come from both sides. Not only must “whites” accept “non-whites”, the “non-whites” must accept that most (this means over 50%)people want to treat everyone the same (or similar),but cannot when some don’t treat themselves with the dignity and respect they state that they desire.I
I agree. I would be just as scared of three or four white boys in hoods as I would three or four black boys in hoods.

Our job as Christians is to let you know the good news–that God is real, and loves all of us. To show you with the way we live our lives, by the way we interact with others. This is, indeed, a leap of faith. It is not something that even needs to be proven.
We are to help you open your eyes, with love and respect, and allow Got to work in you. These arguments about “prove it” and “prove against” is pointless.
Many people–archeologist, and other scientist–have gone out to prove that things didn’t happen the way the Bible tells it… they discover the truth! Things DID happen the way they are told! That alone should give most a reason to consider the possibility.
In any case, those of us who are truely Christian will show others love and respect, and let the power of God run through us to shine out to everyone.
That being said, will will die for our beliefs. We willnot, and cannot let this great country go to the point of losing the freedom of thought, of consideration, of religion, of self sufficiency. We will stand up and stand tall, and know that our Father is proud of us.
You see how this person responds? Not with intellectual attacks or putting someone else down but with an attempt to reach out to someone who doesn't think like they do.
Atheists, if you wish to draw others to your movement, you need to to do a better job then bullying through the court system are mocking people with billboards.
Look under "True Scientist vs. Pseudo Scientist!
Keep in your heart that Pseudo Scientist are Christians! ;)

I like to design aircraft and split atoms for a living on the side. I know science...I just don't use a tool like science and manipulate it into a religion and call everyone else knuckle-draggers because they don't think the way you do.
