I read a lot of NFL biographies and many don't come from suburban, wealthy, white families. I don't see how being put up for adoption increased his chances of going to the NFL.
His mother is a ***** who was impregnated by a loser who disappeared. She was too stupid to wear a condom or get an abortion then threw her child away.
Today she works as a nurse and has never met him. She will continue working as a nurse while his adoptive parents share in his new wealth.
Moral of the story is that just because you're worthless doesn't mean your offspring will be. This country would improve ten fold if only parents would love their kids and support them.
Also worth noting, Steve Jobs parents threw him away. A decision that cost them potentially billions.
I think you was the one who called her "worthless." I never got the impression that she was. She just simply wanted better for her kid.
In all truthfulness folks give up their kids for many reasons. Not all of it has to do with them not have the income. I think it's best not to judge what we don't know.
