This is completely inappropriate for a fish list, but, I was wondering...

Why do people have to prove themselves as capable of properly raising a
child in order to adopt one, but anybody is allowed to have one the good

that could be avoided.

Please, no one respond to this tangent. That's the last thing nanfa-l
