Parents Behaving Badly---Danny Vu, Again!
You might remember Danny Vu when I wrote him up as Asshat of the Week. He's the guy who tried to sell his toddler daughter to a customer in his nail salon for $7000. Why? He needed some money to fix up his home.
Turns out he tried to do it before.
After his arrest, another client came forward and reported that Vu had offered her his daughter for $10,000. Vu faces trial in January.
Since there's been a lot of anti-adoption brouhaha of the "Natural Family or No Family at All" type going around on some of the adoption blogs lately, what I want to know is:
Is there NEVER an instance where adoption is an appropriate solution for a kid?
You'd think trying to sell your child for cash would rank somewhere on the top ten I Really REALLY Don't Want to be a Parent list.
