The Brady Bunch

No this is not about the Patriots. So my wife read this story in our town and it was about these kids who were taken away from both parents. The kids were in placement in our town and something happened with that. So the kids were shipped back to the orphanage or wherever they put kids with no parents. One of the kids from the Football team asked the coach if there was any way he could continue playing on the team for the rest of the year even though he was not living in town.

The coach has a big heart and started up a fund for the kids and send a sappy message around asking if anyone in town wanted to adopt these three children. My wife despite all her faults actually is fairly humane and now kinda, sorta wants to adopt the kids or at least be a placement home for a while. She is all like "yeah, there is a fund for them already that will take care of most expenses and you get money from the state" and what not.

Is it too cynical for my first thought to be "Does she just want more child support?". DOH! Anyway I am not sure if she is serious about this or just wants to do something to help them out and maybe make a few bucks in the process. Peace.

I can't think of a more stable household for more children.

A completely unnecessary complication in a situation already too complicated for comfort. An epically bad idea IMO, that, yes, may have ulterior motives...

If I thought you were not being totally serious I would have thought that this was a great satirical post.

Live with you and your wife and the toxic environment that exists -- especially as you begin divorce proceedings? Ay, Caramba!

Zero votes for has to indicate something here. I think you can trust the majority vote -- make that slam-dunk.
