I guess this is the end of my "good faith" sperm donating days...

You may have already seen this story, but I thought it was worth a post.

So if this guy is legally obligated to child support, then we should all be asking our respective embryologists for new skates or a baseball glove or something of similar ilk - I mean, they're just as much a responsible party in creating life as the parents were. Hell, the embryologist probably spent more time with the sperm than the biological father.

21 years old, going on... 1 month...

Since I seem to be a news hog lately, and full of only ugliness and evil, I thought I'd send along this link since it's fairly uplifting and interesting.

So I'm morbidly consumed

the hits just keep coming.. I'm not searching them out, I just see them in the paper. If I had a sense of humor today, I'd see the irony in all of this - but it just makes me ill. I don't get it. Insight, anyone? WTF?

Why them?

Every once in a while, I come across a news story that involves an infant or a child and some grotesque abomination that their only-considered-a-parent-due-to-matching-dna caretakers inflicted upon them. Sometimes I've actually read stories and just sat there and cried. But always - ALWAYS - when I read about abuse to children, as a person who has struggled to bring my own biological into the world, I wonder - "why them?".

It never gets me anywhere, and yeah - we all know that there are crack babies born by the bakers dozen on any given day, but I read the following story, and I just couldn't get away from it. Why them? Why her?

On point

Stumbled across a great, and so topic appropriate, quote:

I'm working on some new material, based on some of your recommendations that folks have e-mailed. You kids out there in blog-o-land like meaty details, it seems! So I'm working on a follow-up to the coffee/beer post and also something to give you an idea of our deliberations on IVF. So more to come, hopefully. Best to you all, and thanks for all the positive feedback.
