Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful that 416 children in Texas may grow up without being forced into marriage at age 12.

I hadn't paid much attention to the "Polygamous Ranch" story that was unfolding over the past few days. In fact, my only passing thought was, "Those poor moms ... having their children taken away from them."

But yesterday on my way home from work, I heard the following story on NPR:

Suddenly, I don't feel any any sympathy for the weeping mothers. No 16-year-old girl should be giving birth to her fourth baby.
