Just had a horrible day at work and needed to get something off my chest.........
We had a terribly abused little kid that came into out ER today. I wont go into any details, but to say that she will be better off when she passes away.
What I really don't get is this. Here I am, wanting to have another child badly, making a child and having to let her go early, while this child was perfectly healthy before this happened to her. Why would you have children if you are going to abuse them? Do the parents not understand that they have been given a gift? That they have something truely special and that they should be protecting her from the world? Not damaging her! Yes there are many children in the foster care system that do not ever get adopted, but if they don't want her, why not give her up to someone who does? To top it off, the mother is pregnant with another child. If she didn't want the first child, why on earth would she have another?
This whole scenerio bothers me!
Sorry for the rant. Needed to get it off my chest.
