Quoting Quiverfull: God Doesn’t Look For The Most Able?

snowflake

by Adeye Salem from No Greater Joy Mom - Embryo Adoption FAQThe new clinic (Snowflake (tm) where Adeye plans to have all of those frozen embryos implanted at is apparently also enabling the Salems to promote themselves to everyone as the go-to answer folks for questions. Or else they're allowing the Salems to prance and preen for attention via these videos. I cannot figure out which one it is, a 'Look at me!!!!' or a genuine attempt to 'help' others. What do you think?Some digging on the interwebs turned up this interesting article from 11 years ago about Snowflake adoption - The problem with 'embryo adoption' … [Read more...]

Duggar Drama: Fighting For a Place in the Front Row?

Not Jill and Jessa but what they might be itching to do to each other is reports are right.
