My granddaughter was born in Asia, within a few days they had to go to the American embassy to get her a passport and visa. I’m sure the baby would have had to have some kind of legal document.

What update would you like? Based on your prior commentary one would deduce that you will victim shame the kid for not fighting off the abductor and avoiding getting locked in a hard side suitcase.....

Well, you actually made me laugh and spit tea on my computer screen.

Now that I've cleaned it off, what in the world are you referring to, specifically?

(Honestly, it's the weirdest thing, online communications with strangers. No one in my entire life would say to me what you just said. I'm actually usually accused of being a bleeding heart).

Everyone, including infants, need passports or other travel documents to travel internationally.

This lady already has 5 kids. Why does she want more???

The young Filipina girl should be ashamed of herself. Either don't have sex or practice safe sex.

The white knight savior syndrome would be my guess. Presumably a local child dropped off at a fire station would go to some other foster/adoptive parents.

The other theory would be the human trafficking mule.

LOL. Selling a filipino baby to finance the 5 kids... Epic!

Oh, if only it were so easy... if only birth control didn't fail, everyone had easy and affordable access to it and access to information about how to use it properly, no one ever got raped (including by spouses), there weren't societies who believe a woman's worth is tied up in how many kids she has and a man's ego is tied up in how many women he can impregnate, etc.

The shame is probably what cause the kid to disappear into a foreigner's hands instead of being passed off to a married relative in another province who becomes the parent and the birth mother becomes the aunt.

Sorry, hope your screen and keyboard survive. My commentary was based on observations of some of your posts. If I am wrong, my apologies. Happy to make you laugh tho...
