I know you read this blog because just this week you, or your staff, reacted to this post by pretending to wish Trig a Happy Birthday within minutes, even though Trig’s real birthday was two days prior.
I don’t expect you to be motivated by anything I say or write. However you have proclaimed your love of family, and you have often defended and rallied behind Bristol. Today on Bristol’s blog she posts pictures of Tripp (that’s two “T”s…as in Shailey Tripp) for the last three Easters. In each one Tripp is doing something that children love to do on Easter. Here are the pictures:
Here is your “Easter” picture of Trig as you send him away.
We didn’t see a picture of a birthday party or an Easter celebration, even though this past weekend was both. For years people have speculated that Trig isn’t your biological son. We will probably never know the truth about Trig’s biological mother. What we do know is that every child deserves to live in a home where he feels he is loved and cared for by his mother. Because Trig is a special needs child he needs that love even more. It seems Trig no longer serves a political purpose for you. You will surely never hold another political position, so you no longer have a need to remind people of your position on abortion.
You travel around the country without Trig, endorsing candidates for political office who eventually lose,
attending basketball games without Trig,
attending NASCAR races, with your husband the pimp, but without Trig,
meeting drug addicts with the girls, but not Trig,
appearing with politicians for political purposes, without Trig
appearing with famous hunters who promote statutory rape, without Trig,
giving speeches at graduation ceremonies in remote locations,without Trig,
appearing in New York for television shots, without Trig,
eating at Chick-fil-a, without Trig,
and making “reality” shows about the great outdoors, in front of green screens indoors, without Trig.
You don’t have time for Trig, and we understand that. Make up a lie to explain why, but send Trig to Bristol, or to anyone that will raise him as their own son, who will love him and provide for his special needs. Trig needs a mother, and you need to tell him you are sorry you have used him for the first six years of his life. Let him experience the joy of making a snow bunny and coloring Easter eggs. His life is precious and he deserves a mother who will love him and celebrate his life. Make it easy on yourself, and give him a permanent home with a mother who will love him.
Malia Litman, and all mothers who love their children
