You misread rajaton. He said he wouldn't deal with just anybody willing to pay.
A lot of people are making this guy seem unreasonable. Yet, don't know him only know of this. If this guy truly can't support his kid, but wants to actually find fit parents. I see nothing wrong with this. As it's probably better then sending his kid into foster homes anyways. Not to mention asking for 5 grand may seem greedy as hell, but it could also be an easy way of seeing if the people have enough financial wealth to take care of his kid better then what he could do.
Now of course if he is in it strictly for the money then he deserves more then jail time, but we don't know him well enough to make that decision from a little article.
If he is looking to give his son a better life money in his pocket shouldn't factor in! There are other factors here if his parents have stopped talking to him even after the mother was out of the picture!
People pay parents all the time to adopt their kids. It's not even illegal. They do it by paying for the hospital bills, etc. when a pregnant mother doesn't want her child but wants to give birth. Frequently, there is a side payment as well...
Please explain how this is different. Is it because the child has already been born? Or because there are no medical bills to pay?
While I agree that a craigslist ad wasn't the brightest idea and that the foster child programs are a joke... This might just work out for the child. Desperate times sometimes call for desperate measures. Who is to say that his wife didn't rack up 100k in credit card debt in his name and then leave? Things are not always in black and white.
omg! that is sad if he wanted to get the boy a good home he sould do it the rite way he sounds mess up in the head he should be look at anyone think that he might being selling because he sell kids or on drugs or mentally crazy what rite person in their mind would do that. i think he need help not with money but mental wow! if he reads this i hope u stop!dumb
