U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing Temper Tantrum
"Having an instant multicultural family was magical for about two weeks,” says Stacey Conner, a 41-year-old American mom from Spokane, Washington.
After she volunteered in an orphanage in Haiti in 2005, Conner and her husband adopted a 5-year-old Haitian boy named “J.”
Conner claims the boy had attachment disorder and began a strict regimen of attachment parenting of constant surveillance in which a child must often ask for food and water. After two months, J threw a tantrum where he unintentionally hit Conner’s nose with the back of his head.
Conner says the 5-year-old’s strike was accidental, but describes it as “a domestic violence situation. Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even like J.”J was sent to live with another family in the Midwest. Conner’s biological children adjusted seamlessly to life without their adoptive brother. But other people were puzzled. Neighbors who had seen J riding his bike asked, “Where’s your son?” When Conner answered truthfully, “I’d get the most horrified stares, so I’d keep walking. And I didn’t tell many out-of-town friends or extended family for months.”Despite such events, the Conners were approved by local social workers to become a foster family, and in October 2013 received a 3-month-old boy as their first placement.
white people will let their white kids karate chop them in the throat and call them names in public, but a black child becomes naturally upset after you treat the kid like a grown criminal/animal and you just give them away. go it. sounds reasonable.
"i’d get the most horrified stares"
“APPROVED BY SOCIAL WORKERS TO BECOME A FOSTER FAMILY”
NOT TO DERAIL THIS POST BECAUSE THIS IS FUCKED UP IN SO MANY WAYS, BUT THIS RIGHT HERE IS WHY THE FOSTER SYSTEM IS SO FUCKED UP JESUS FUCKING CHRIST. MY FRIEND WHO GREW UP IN FOSTER CARE HAS SO MANY ISSUES WITH SELF-DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR AND SELF-ESTEEM BECAUSE IF SHE DIDN’T ACT LIKE A FUCKING GOLDEN RETRIEVER HER FOSTER FAMILY WOULD LABEL HER AS “TROUBLED” AND HAVE HER MOVED. Basically if kids act like kids they’re called “troubled”, so they’re taught that they have to be this impossible perfect inhuman thing up to the point where either they’re lucky enough to find a good family or the stress of this unattainable expectation leads them to a place where they actually are “troubled” (I hate that word so much btw)
Darren Hunt of Utah
The murder of young Black Men by police continues.
oh for fucks SAKE
Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…
Police say he lunged at them, autopsy shows he was shot in the back, White America sees nothing wrong with it and tells black people to stop playing the race card.
The world has changed and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes the best that we can do is to start over.

Manchester Dogs home was set on fire tonight by some sick individual. Over 40 dogs have already died and over 150 dogs have nowhere to go. They need as much support at possible. Please reblog this and donate if you can, so that the dogs that survived the fire can be cared for.
*bangs fist on table* I WANT COLD WEATHER
AND LESS THINGS CATCHING ON FIRE
You sound like me once I find a job. We’re both going to have to work at not living our jobs 24/7
Ohhh hell yeah. I’m hoping, at this point, once I’ve gotten all the nitty gritty things answered and I’ve gotten more used to the process, I’ll learn to leave the work at my desk and just relax on the weekends.
I hope when you find a job that you’ll have super nice employees who are more than willing to help you out those first few days.
Created for Moon Crisis: A Sailor Moon Tribute Art show. I wanted to capture the Shoujo feeling I remember from the 80’s.
It will be available through the show as a 18x24” Giclée print and also afterwards as a direct purchase (the first time printing in this size!). Email me at teacupbee @gmail.com if your interested in purchasing as I am determining how many will be created. It will only be available IN THIS SIZE for a limited time.
The thing I’m finding most difficult now that I’m working, is actually leaving all thoughts about work.. at work.
I’m forever mulling over the things I did, and maybe should have done. I have little tiny questions that I still want to ask the office, and I can only hope they all have patients of the saints with me.
Really though, what I want to do, is to be ridiculously efficient as possible, and get all these people worked through so they don’t keep coming back. Of course, things like that will happen, but man, I want this process to go as smoothly as possible.
