New Baby Thoughts and the World

So, as you all know, I have this precious baby! It is hard to believe how fast we fall in love with them. It is also so hard to believe that we feel the same love for all of our children. There is that much love to go around. As, I look at my new baby, and all my children, I am so grateful to have all of them in my life and it brings tears to my eyes (tears of joy!). I feel so blessed to be able to bring these children into the world and teach them the things they need to learn. I guess that is what brings me to what I want to write about today. Some people in the world just confuse me! Why do some people even have children? For instance, my cousin, who is a lot younger than me, got me really thinking about this. My cousin R got sent away to a boarding school when she was in high school. She had ran away from home and her parents felt this was the best opportunity for her to shape up. She was doing so good. Until her parents found out she was pregnant. R had the baby and kept him. R has been pregnant every time I have been. She had a baby at the end of last year (her 3rd) and she is living with her boyfriend and doing drugs. Social Services came in and took away two of her children and her oldest is staying with R's dad. Social Services is trying to find R to get her to go to rehab so she does not lose all of here children. But, they can not find her. R called her dad the other night and told him she just wants to run away. She does not want to face up to her problems and does not really seem to care about her children anymore. Social Services has the children in foster care. It really is a sad situation. I just do not understand how people can choose drugs over there children? I know I can not judge them but when I look at my own children I just do not think anything would keep me from them. I would do whatever I had to do to keep my children. Mind you I know R has had a VERY hard life for a young woman. I also know that we all have the right to choose in this life what we do. But, it still pains me. We have another girl who goes to our church who is in a similar situation as R, except she went to jail. Also, there have been several local news stories lately about babies parents going to court for murder because they beat the child to death. I just do not understand how anyone could do that to a baby. Right before I had the twins, my doctor had delivered a set of triplets. As, a mother of twins, I know there are a lot of pressures put on parents of multiles and it sometimes makes it harder. So, again I can not judge but it is hard for me to understand how these parents abused these children and killed one.
These are just some thoughts I have had going through my head. Looking at my own child I just can not see how I could let anything come in the way of raising these little spirits! Like I said I am not judging, just do not understand. I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for blessing me with 4 spirits to raise. After my first was born, I thought I would never have another because It took me so long to get pregnant the second time. Look at me now. lol I have 4 beautiful and healthy children to raise and I am so grateful!

P.S. My cousin R and her children could really use some prayers as well as all of the children out there who are suffering!

I often wonder that too, how people can hurt their own children, it makes me so sad. I hope your cousin can straighten out for her kids.
