    At 2 am today I got a call from a girl I havent seen in a long long time. At first I was ecstatic but her reason for calling became apparent pretty soon. She called with the express purpose of asking me to raise her kid. What the fuck. No seriously. WHAT THE FUCK.

    Who the hell does that?

    We were supposed to get together senior year but she opped for a "Thug" and went our separate ways. Fast forward a few years he knocks her up and bounces and she has the gall to ask me to get with her and help her raise her kid.


    Unbelievable.

    Perhaps she considers you a good male role model (Is her kid a boy?) for her child. I am not sure how much she expects you to help raise her kid, but perhaps she is simply looking for a good male role model (and someone she trusts obviously) to more or less be kind of like a "big brother"? Just throwing other thoughts out for you. If she was going to relinquish her child to you for the purpose of bailing out of motherhood, I have no respect for that UNLESS she realizes that the life that she can provide is nothing compared to what others can. That I MAY have some respect for if there is validity to it all.

    Id be more inclined to consider other possibilities if she didnt burn bridges years ago. At this point she is little better than a stranger to me.

    She must be in a really difficult place and I'm thinking she probably isn't very stable or aware. You might be able to help her find a solution to her problem. When people have come to me with really heavy problems I help them find the local government and/or non-profit agencies that are available to help folks. I'm thinking a women's shelter sort of place might be a good place for her to go to start to sort out her problems.

    In a way it's flattering. But in another way it's sad.
