Rachel Braccini Interview For Final Interviewer: “And so you mentioned that you have a little brother, how old were you when he was born?” Me: “I was twelve, I turned thirteen one month and eleven days after he was born.” Interviewer: “And you obviously don’t have any children, correct?” Me: “Well no, that’s why I’m here.” Interviewer: “I see. Well let me just give your application another once over. Alright let’s see, you said you used to babysit as well?” Me: “Yes, plenty of times. I’m really good with kids, but see, I’m not too fond of them all the time. But I’m sure I would love my kids unconditionally.” Interviewer: “Of course. But suppose you had a child born with a disability of some sort, would you still love it? Would you want to give it up for adoption. Tell me, what exactly do you think you would do?” Me: “Well, I’d have to talk about that with whomever the father is. But I think I would still care for it with to the best of my ability. It would just be difficult obviously.” Interviewer: “Right, that’s understandable. Well you certainly seem responsible, not the type to just throw your child in a dumpster if you didn’t like it.” Me: “That’s disgusting. And inhumane and incomprehensible to me.” Interviewer: “I’m glad you feel that way.”
Note: I was watching this show the other day and it was talking about teenagers hiding their pregnancies and then throwing the babies in dumpsters. It was the weirdest thing I had ever seen. And I got the idea that their should be some sort of application process for motherhood. You hear all the time about Octomoms and women having crazy amounts of kids and not being able to support themselves, let alone the kids. It’s totally unrealistic, but an interesting concept in my opinion. Maybe if there were an application process for motherhood, some of the countries issues such as poverty and illiteracy could be solved. But that’s along the lines of something Hitler may have tried to do, so naturally it’ll never happen. Which is probably a good thing.
