41. A handful of "Romani kings" for well over a million Roma....

There's no doubt it's sick. And I really wish I could rescue every child going through these nightmares. Being pressured by family and the potential of ostracism to marry even someone your own age when you're still a kid yourself is wrong (and that's the more normal function of the custom from my understanding -- and I'm glad that girls are standing up to their parents and refusing to cooperate with those plans.).

What bothers me is the speed at which people have jumped to the conclusion that this was obviously the calculated, diabolical plan of this horrible couple, without considering that it's possible the mother might have wanted the child for the same reasons US couples adopt children -- to love them and be loved in return.
