WHO IS JACK SCHITT?
For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt?
We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt'!
Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.
Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, who married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc.
They had one son, Jack.
In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.
Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt. Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony. The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.
Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.
Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt', you can correct them.

Thank goodness Jack wasn't adopted, so his genealogical origins could be found! In honor of this new discovery, here's the latest boat-load of the famous Schitt family...

“Bitter Sweet is an important film to help everyone understand what adoption is about. It is positive, accurate and very well done.”
Sister Paula, Founder. International Life Services
A Video Documentary Bitter Sweet, Stories of Open Adoption is a poignant look at one of the most difficult, and loving, decisions a woman can ever make. Making the decision to turn an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy, into the miracle of family, through adoption.
Filmed over two years, Bitter Sweet provides a rare look into the adoption process. It features the stories of five courageous women who share their sorrow, strength and hope as they process through the steps of considering and finally choosing adoption for their children.
“A must see for anyone woman facing the most important choice of her life - I use it in all areas of my counseling” Kim Felder, Adoption Counselor,Kinship Center, Los Angeles, CA
....So here's a new documentary in the arsenal of coercive tactics to persuade women to surrender their babies to adoption. Adoption is not a win-win ~ it is a loss-loss-win-loss-loss. It is not the most "loving" decision a woman can make ~ what bull-schitt (excuse the french, but true). A truly "courageous" woman would do whatever it takes to fulfill the role of Mother that God gave her the minute of conception. She wouldn't fall for the lies of being such a "courageous hero" for the benefit of desperate would-be adopters...sorry for being so blunt, but it is just the plain truth.
Relinquishment and adoption is the act of a Mother legally abandoning her helpless baby to strangers through a business-transaction, in a supply and demand based industry. Period. It is not courageous and not really all that loving. It is the easy way out. It is fulfilling the needs of adults over the needs of the child, no matter HOW GOOD the adoptive home is. I don't see adoptive parents making "loving" decisions to give their newly purchased kids away to another "more suitable" family when they suddenly get sick or broke or divorced or fall on hard times, in order to make a "courageous, loving choice" for the benefit of the child. I don't see parents doing that, period. I only see women falling for lies that are told to them in order to keep the waiting lists supplied.
As an adoptee it is very hard to rationalize ANY REASON a mother gives for abandoning her child...we get a little bit of relief by hearing first mothers tell their stories of how society treated them and their life-long loss that resulted...but it really disgusts me that it all still goes on...
When I see advertisements for adoption agencies that talk of giving a "birthmother" the chance to go to college and make a life for herself (without her own flesh and blood helpless baby), it makes me feel like I am not as valuable as a college-education and career. It makes me feel MORE unwanted than being given the "gift" of a "new" identity through a competitive monetary transaction. It makes me feel like a commodity who isn't worth the effort or sacrifice of being WANTED and NURTURED by my own mother, society, and life. Adoption doesn't LEGITIMIZE anyone. It creates unacknowledged loss for all parties involved and for society as a whole.
