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?

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 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.

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. :("

Think I am done Marla as I did not want to get involved in this thread as I saw your post about your 18 yr old being pregnant. Thanks anyway.

I guess you missed the part where I explained that she moved in already pregnant. But hey, I'll gladly enjoy the board without you speaking to me. Thank you!
