Quote ransomha: Jason had no problem letting Lucky be Jake's father so, he might have told him to just let Dante raise him.
Maxie and Spin weren't planning on being parents and if they could give their own child away so their friend wouldn't be sad, what kind of parents are they going to make anyway?
Yes, they were not planning on being parents, but that is by no means any indication of what kind of parents they would be. It was not that they were unwilling to be parents, they were allowing her to be raised by some one else in order to not hurt Lante. But still that says nothing about what kind of parents they would be. Just because some parents choose to not parent their own child because, say they gave up the child for adoption, that dose not speak to what kind of parents they would make.
Plenty of parents on here have parented their own children and have done awful jobs and some who kept their children and did well.
