Thom Marshall wrote about a girl who wants to live with her step-mother instead of her biological one, only to be stymied by the courts.
When will judges learn to keep their noses out of business like this? A 12-year old knows well enough what’s best. Far better, I might add, than a judge who’s too busy to even hear the cases in his jurisdiction.
Similarly, the courts need to uphold the rights of adoptive parents who have committed their hearts, lives, and wallets to the raising of their children and stop favoring biological parents who re-appear into the lives of these children.
Biology means very little, in the scheme of life and our legal system should concern itself with the stability and quality of a child’s upbringing rather than rewarding under-achieving sperm and egg donors.
