A Criminal Mind

With Megan rounding the corner of 8 1/2 months (!!!), we have to start thinking about obtaining our next child. Unfortunately, we can't just plan 9 months ahead of when we want that new addition. Every child-obtaining scenario we can think of involves a lot of time and/or a lot of money. Well, lucky for us, we thought of a much easier way!

Yesterday we were at the Utah amusement park, Lagoon. We were wandering around the park with Little Miss Megan when we came across the "Missing Children" station. Then, the thought occured to us: why not just "find" a child among the missing? Hmmm, how hard could it be?

Walk into the room frantically and exclaim, "I'm missing my child!" They promptly ask you who your child is. You point to the youngest one in the room... (the one who can't defend himself)... and wha-la! You got yourself a new kid! Nice plan, eh?

That's just the beginning. I figure we can't go to the same park twice to pull this off correctly. We're going to have to broaden our horizons past Utah.

Take a family (meaning: "obtain more family") vacation every year. First, hit Utah's amusement park. Then, move on to Nevada, then California, fly to Ohio. You get the picture.

I haven't worked out the rest of the details yet, but I'll surely keep you up-to-date on our new adventure. And, in the mean time, if you want to "donate" one of your children to our cause, just drop them off at your local amusement park and let us know when to be there.

(For any baby-snatcher-cops out there: this post is entirely for fun. We would NEVER do this, so please don't come after us.)

I love the idea! So much less hassle and cheaper than a silly adoption agency.

I think I saw this on an episode of Law & Order....and the outcome wasn't a good one.

From Jeff: The final stage of this plan move to a country that doesn't have extradition rights with the US and enjoy raising your family in the third world!
