As someone who chose to have just one child, I must say that I am completely opposed to any policy that dictates the size of a family. Frankly, I don’t care how many children someone wishes to have, as long as they take responsibility for them. I’ve gotten a lot of flack for my choice to have only one child, from strangers to coworkers to my own family members. But it is my choice, just as it is the choice of another mother to have four, five, six or nineteen kids. Yes, the more people there are, the more our planet will be strained. But, I think there are other solutions to this then telling women how many children they can have.

the idea of a global one-child rule makes me sick to my stomach. i am expecting my third next month, actually my fourth– my third child, i was forced by the father, to have an abortion. 😦 it’s a trauma you never get over, and the other “options”- sterilization, fines, etc.– they are no better. i feel terribly for these owmen in china– wish i could go hug each one of them.

I’m so glad Sean Goldman was finally returned to his father, after he was wrongfully kept from him for so many years.. It’s such a messy situation though, because Sean was taken from David when he was 4 and he’s 9 now… the only father he really knows is his step-dad (whose actions I find disgusting), and now he has a baby sister in Brazil too. It’s a sad situation all around but I am happy that Sean and David finally have the chance to get to know each other again and I wish them all the happiness in the world!

i’m glad he got his son back because the mom shouldn’t have taken him in the first place. but on the other hand he’s been in brazil with that side of his family for the last five years and is gonna have to get used to his father and his american side of his family now, so hopefully he can adjust and still keep in contact with his brazilian family, especially his baby sister.

I’m brazilian and everyone in Brazil wanted Sean with his father. Only the friends of the Bianchi’s wanted him in Brazil.
