Poor kids have greater chances of asthma, Substandard housing being a contributing factor.  What would you change/add if money was no object?  What are your thoughts and experiences?

Oh, she doesn't miss a thing....but she does seem to read a lot of things that the rest of us have never typed.

I assumed when I posted about my dsd that it could possibly come up later. I'm OK with that. I don't care if people think I'm a poor parent because I had an 18 year old stepchild who lived in another state had sex that resulted in pregnancy. We're supporting her the best we can; if someone finds fault with that, so be it. I'm just a little disappointed that the post didn't look like the standard issue:

"Sorry your daughter got pregnant. :("

I know. I was a big lurker/occasional poster back when this board was in its prime and I can't believe the memory that some people have... or their inane obsessions.

Wow you could have fooled me. For someone who claims they live a christian lifestyle and wants to better themselves everyday, it sure doesnt sound like it. Scary IMO if this is the type of christianity everyone is supposed to strive for.

If you are going to sit in judgement, you might want to move away from the glass house.

I think you have stated many times, Peachy how religious you are. It amazes me for someone who tries to be more like Jesus to act this way toward total strangers.

Honestly I hear it more from you as you judge.  Why?

No Peachy, not confusing you with someone else but that is ok if you feel this is the way a devout christian should act. Maybe that will be a good question for bible class :)

How do you know how a devout Christian should act?

I have been on this board for years and yes, it's nice to stay in touch with some on facebook. Wow, I didn't know you were trying to read my posts there, Should I be afraid?
