> I don't know, FP. Even if he had a tight grip...did you see the footage? I didn't, but I was told the baby was kicking and seemed terrified.
FP: Yes, I have seen it. It all happened so fast because he ran out to show the baby and ran back in just as quick. He held the baby under its arms around the baby's body and was also holding his head that was sligthly covered as if he wanted to protect the baby from the sun and/or unclean air or something. I wasn't aware the baby was kicking and terrified, perhaps, I need to look for that next time. They will show it a hundred times before they stop. LOL
Even babies not old enough to crawl know enough to be scared of being somewhere high without support.
FP: I did not know babies did not feel like they are without support if you held them with your arms around their body under their arms. Well, if I ever get pregnant, I will go read child development books or take that class again. Perhaps, I will have a clearer perspective from the interview tonight.
I appreciate that he has been abused and has many issues, and I don't condemn him for it. At the same time, I hope this child wasn't traumatized for an insanely wealthy eccentric's whim. I can't imagine these kids are growing up in a healthy environment, even if he adores them.
Also, I thought it was incredibly selfish for him to snatch his daughter immediately after birth and run away with her (still with the placenta and everything). I don't know if I could ever forgive someone taking a child from me that I had just given birth to- that moment can never be replaced.
FP: WOW! I wonder what was that all about. I guess, I will find out tonight on the interview if I am not stupid enough to forget to watch it. If that is the same baby? He told people that he doesn't know who the mother is and she doesn't know who he is, so that must be another child of his. I see the interview will be quite interesting.
His intentions might be good and full of love, but that doesn't mean he isn't causing pain for those around him.
FP: True. You have a point there. Thanks for bringing that to my attention and reminding me of that. Perhaps, Elizebeth Taylor needs to show him real love by telling him the compassionate truth and stop enabling him, just so she can feel needed with him depending on her for love and nurture or something like that.
