Grandparents, society will support those children

Today, while listening to our local FM station 94.3, I learned that five of the seven children born this week were born to unwed mothers. I would like to commend the two couples that actually were married when they had their children. I would also like to commend the parents of the other five girls who decided it was a smart thing to do to try to raise a child outside of marriage; you will most likely be raising your grandchildren. As for me, I now know where part of my tax dollars will be going for the next 18 years.
