Dr. Thomas couldn’t understand how a talented surgeon could be deemed “incapable of the delicate work of raising a child.” The inconvenient and inflexible scheduling of the court did little to improve the situation. Lunch break at the hospital was taken if and only if no one was dying at the time, so tardiness to the hearing was almost inevitable. Nevertheless, the lateness had “reflected an indifference unhealthy for child development.”
The conceited shallow jerks. If they were so insistent on seeing everything so simplistically they should have respected the basics; never separate a child from his mother.
