    @ Phil: No sir, my last name begins w/ a "Z". Do you like my writing? I may be gone soon too. My Mac will cost too much to repair and I am changing cell plans w/ no web.

    @ Cesar: Dude, really? Use more words if you would like to evoke a response.

    OMG, these are the stupidst posts I have ever read. People who sell children should be locked up for life.
    But there is a bigger story here. Where are the kids parents? was the baby stolen from them, was it ok with them, how did the grandma get the word out? Hummm.They don't look like rocket scientists. There are plenty of loving families who are looking for a child to adopt. All they had to do is contact a lawyer, and arrange a private adoption, sometimes they reinburse the birth mother for medical expenses, etc. There is no reason for this. It's creepy, probably has to do with drugs.

    So 30k is what a white baby goes for these days? Sounds kind of cheap if you ask me.

    Sounds like a fair price to me. Why buy all your babies overseas for $50,000. Saves time and keeps the money in the States which is good for the economy.
