No matter how crazy they may make you, it should go without saying that you can’t actually sell your kids. There are laws against that kind of thing. But that sure didn’t stop one 22-year old mother of two kids from trying. She posted numerous times on Facebook offering to sell them and actually had someone lined up to buy them. (Are you creeped out yet?)
Reportedly, a woman from Fort Smith, Arkansas was going to pay $4,000 for the pair; one is 10-months old and the other is 2-years old.
The mother of the children did not pass Go and did not collect $200, but instead was taken straight to the Sequoyah County Jail, where she’s being held on a $40,000 bail. The two kids have been taken into protective custody. Oddly enough (as if the story wasn’t horrid and weird enough already), she was trying to raise money to — get this — bail her boyfriend out of jail. Try as I might, I can’t find any Facebook page for the accused. If you find her, let me know on Twitter (@mbchp) so I can add her picture to this post.
