If you get a note like this from this guy, ignore it. Delete it. If you ask what his daughter likes, he’ll try sending you a very suspicious folder with random art in it, as well as a virus.

Please spread this around because someone who doesn’t know any better can really wind up getting screwed over. Thank you!

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"
gee
wonder why

This is why we don’t trust y’all white savior “oh check out this profile pic of me and these smiling poor brown children. You can tell I really made a difference” asses

The fact that for the most part these people are allowed to do shit like this with no legal punishment or recourse on behalf of the children being abused is mind boggling.

She literally treated that child like a dog.

Actually no, she’d probably treat a dog better.

Accidents like that happen all the time with children, and her first instinct is to stop loving the child and give it away?

I can’t.

I hope that beautiful boy is okay, and with a family that treats him like gold.

Welcome to the adoption industry where they give zero fucks about the well being of the child.

Having known more than one family who adopted a child from another country and treated them well, as they would their own child, I would like to point out that this does not happen in every situation where a family adopts a child from another country.

However, it sounds to me like this woman was very unfit to be a mother in the first place… every child is going to throw temper tantrums at one point or another. And here we’re talking about a child with attachment disorder. The system has many flaws, giving this child to this woman was one of them, but I’ve known many people who were more than fit for parenthood who were unable to adopt a child, from America or any other country. 

There needs to be more blame placed on the system for not properly screening all of their adoptions, but let’s not forget that there are good people out there too, who are unable to have children or choose to adopt out of a goodness in their hearts and who love their adopted children like they are their own flesh and blood. 

This situation, however… sickens me.
