This case is incredibly disturbing and frightening. That the courts found the ex-Lesbian lover (Jenkins) a more reasonable person to give custody of a child who she has no biological connection to...and what sounds like an unhealthy relationship with (radio program I'm listening to said that as a 6 year old she would come home from her visits talking and mimicking suicide and masturbating!) ... is so scary and illogical that it's hard to fathom.
It makes me sick to read the news article call this little girl Jenkins' daughter. She is NOT her daughter. Jenkins is an EX LOVER...basically an ex girlfriend.
If Jenkins were a man...an ex boyfriend with no biological connection who was only around the first 17 months of the child's life...what would the courts do?
I have NO doubt that they would award sole custody to the mother - who in this case does not sound like a mental patient as they're trying to make her out to be...she sounds like *Gasp* a Christian! Heaven forbid! A man would be laughed out of court if he tried to take this little girl away from her real mother (again...if he had been the boyfriend for such a short time and no biological connection).
There is just no such thing as "two mommies" or "two daddies"...sorry. I know it's un-PC to say that, but it's true.
I'm not "anti-Gay" ... although I'm sure someone can call me that if they wish. (Supposedly) free country and all that. My hubby's former sergeant is a lesbian who has a wonderful partner and we adore them both. What two adults do together isn't my business.
But when it comes to the welfare of children...the courts seem to be forgetting that the child's welfare matters much more than the Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual-Tranny-Whatever agenda.
I pray that Lisa and her daughter disappear for good and set up new lives.
I feel like I'm living in Bizarro world. Where the moral Christian woman is being persecuted and the Gay/Lesbian agenda is being rewarded and championed by the government. Very odd.
Having said all of that...It would be entirely different if both women had raised this little girl for all the last 7 years. The little girl WOULD have memories and a relationship with both women. But that is not the case here.
