It must’ve been something I said on their FB regarding the Rodriques family.  I’ll admit, I said a lot, but I did show some restraint.  If I’d said everything I really wanted to say, they would’ve probably blocked me. 😏

Their only hope is that someone who actually wants to rescue them and thinks they can take on all that would entail can still pass muster as Godly enough to please Jill...They really are pretty girls under the makeup, and if someone could manage to wrench them away from the family without breaking them they might actually blossom. Or am I being too optimistic?

Remember when we thought Derick would do that for Jill? #hopelesslyoptimistic #foolmeonce #freenotnurie

Can someone please look at the beach pictures on Erin Bates Paine’s IG and tell me why Carson has such deep dark circles under his eyes?  I personally know a baby who developed those, and it was her very first symptom of liver cancer.

Well said. He's enrolling in a regular secular technical training school (seems generally like a community college).

A little late to the game, but I work in a tutoring lab for the technical side of a state college. Timothy's academic issue won't be as much of an issue, because a lot of tech students have problems with reading, writing, and arithmetic. What will determine his success is his hands-on ability to do the actual physical work. If he's a good airplane mechanic, he'll get enough help to pass the rest of his classwork OR, if his state is like mine, they'll have a certificate option that eliminates any classes not directly necessary for working on airplanes. We currently have a student who is functionally illiterate but has a phenomenal memory. His books are on tape, we read & record his tests, and he gets straight A's on the practical work.

I'm really hoping he succeeds despite his parents. As pathetic as the Rodrigues's are, at least they're encouraging and allowing Timothy to have a dream and pursue it. He may turn into another fundamental twit, but if he succeeds as an airplane mechanic there's hope that his kids won't be squished into a stink bus grifting for their dinner.

Jill Rodriguez is teasing a big announcement on July 1. Her options are: courtship for Tim, courtship for Nurie, courtship for Kaylee, or baby #4. Many people are guessing all of the above.

Erin explained in one of the comments that Carson has very deep-set eyes (similar to Chad's) and the shadows they create make him look like he has black eyes.

I think it's genetic. If you look at the Paine siblings, they all have deep undereye hollows. Carson and Brooklyn (who are mini-Chads) have them while Everly (who looks more Bates-ish) does not.

There’s no way in hell that JBoob or Gil would allow any of their spawn to hook up with any of the Rod kids.  Nope, won’t happen.  JMHO, of course.

Everly doesn’t look anything like her siblings IMO.  Although the other two are cute, Everly is an extraordinarily beautiful child, I think.

I've been following her for quite some time and I've never seen her tease out a pregnancy announcement.  Usually she makes a video as soon as the pee stick shows a positive.  I'm just hopeful that it's a courtship this time.  Poor little Janessa has enough strikes against her without being pushed aside already.

The courtship thing strike me as hilarious because, well, July 1 is nearly 3 weeks away. What if the courtship breaks up before then? I mean, any quality time with that family would send most people running for the proverbial hills, so it's not outside the realm of possibility. 

Sadly, I agree with folks it is probably all of the above. . . .

 if Timothy is in a courtship, that'll crash and burn. He couldn't even survive one semester of college. And any girl would be in direct competition with his mama for his affections. It won't be Kaylee unless it's Nurie , too. (The Biblical Leah and Rachel thing). So that just leaves preggo with number 14 and I really hope that's not it, cuz the Rodriguii already over populate the world. I hope it's none of them, but it's probably all of them.

If some entity actually picks parents and circumstances for babies to be born in to then that entity needs to revisit the workflow. There's a lot of room for improvement all over the world.

Why in the world would God allow another child to be born into that lunacy?  I mean, He works in mysterious ways and all but geez...give the poor kid a break.

Changing the subject...

Kelly Bates has posted a picture of 2 dead babies on her family’s  IG account.  Conjoined twins of a family friend, and they look full-term.  They were conjoined at the heart, so they only lived 8 days.  She thought it was appropriate to post a picture of them after they died.  I don’t even know what to say.  Is that appropriate?

I agree.  Did Kelly even have permission to post that???

I suppose it's possible that the grieving parents want this out there to pursuade others with non viable pregnancies to carry to term and not choose abortion.

Presumably, Kelly is 'pro-life'/anti-abortion and believes in the rights and dignity of all humans.  Posting a photograph of any deceased person is the antithesis of preserving their rights and dignity.  Especially if she didn't have the permission of their parents, Kelly had absolutely no right to post that photo.  Even if they did allow it, the respectful and dignified answer would be to tell the parents that it isn't necessary, that everyone knows their children were beautiful and to ask for prayers for the family without a photo.  Or, you know, ask for a photo of them prior to their deaths, preferably one that showed their faces only instead of using a photo that would exploit their malformation for hits on her site.

ETA: If Kelly thinks that posting a photo of children with a severe malformation who died shortly after birth is somehow going to convince people to carry babies with similar problems to term, she is delusional.

Oh, she posted several pictures of them, but the one of them dead is the first one you see.  You have to swipe to see the others.

She never mentions getting permission from the parents. Of course, all the leghumpers are defending Kelly saying the picture of the dead babies was beautiful and that it really touched them. I wonder if she would ever post a picture of any of her dead family members?Screenshot_20190611-192820_Instagram.thumb.jpg.eaf7dc31b9c46f82193846e3164a2883.jpg

Just because their lives had purpose and they brought joy, doesn’t mean she has to post a photo of them deceased on Instagram for strangers to see. I really do hope she had permission from the family. In that vein, why aren’t they posting deceased adult loved ones in coffins?  Their lives had purpose and they brought joy.

So Chelsy Bontrager Maxwell had a baby (Axton John) in January. She recently published the birth story. (Actually I thought it was rude that other people demanded it earlier and I don't mind that she posted it later.)  She had planned on having a woo birth at home (with twinkle lights, diffuser with oils, music, etc.). She seems to have a more competent birth team than the Duggars with several midwives and a doula.  She seems to have been active labor only a few hours before she headed to the hospital for failure to progress. She gave birth vaginally with help from the vacuum process. 

So it does seem less dramatic than she had said and it worked out well. She listened to the medical professionals, which is good. On the other hand, she was giving birth at home 45 minutes from a hospital (although John sped up to get there). If anything had seriously wrong, that's a long distance especially in January when the roads might be icy. Her Maxwell sisters-in-law mostly also give birth at home and don't live too far from her (Melanie is the exception). Her brothers' wives gave birth at hospital too, so the home birth seems to be a Maxwell idea. John Maxwell, her husband, looked good in this story. She said he was by her side the whole time and took good care of her. He helped make good decisions too. He looked better than other fundie husbands.

The baby pictures were sad and startling to me, as the grandma of new identical twin girls.  So sad to think of what joy that family might have had and the terrible loss they experienced instead.  I don't think it was Kelly's place to post that picture.
