Boulder homeless couple has baby girl

Lexi and Chris Weaver

The Boulder homeless couple featured in a Nov. 21 Boulder Weekly feature story — Lexi and Chris Weaver — now has a little girl.

The baby was born last weekend. Mike Coccoli of Americans 4 Social Justice (A4SJ) told BW that thanks in large part to the article, the couple has received generous support from donors and local homeless advocacy agencies, which have provided temporary housing and other resources that permitted the child to be born indoors, with the necessary support, rather than under the bridge where the couple was living. (See letter to the editor this week.)

But not all feedback has been positive. Tom Cummins of A4SJ says the couple was shaken up by the negative comments posted under the online version of Boulder Weekly’s story, and is unwilling to release the names of the assisting agencies or donors, or even the name of their baby, for fear of negative consequences such as having someone call in the local child protective services unit.

In the comment section under the BW story, two people identified as “Kristina11” and “Shawn” got into a heated debate about issues such as how, and whether, the homeless couple should be bringing a new life into the world.

The online comments “shook them up big-time. I thought they were going to pull a runner,” Cummins said, referring to the likelihood that the couple would leave town. “But luckily, the baby came a little early, so they didn’t have time to plan it.”

He added that the couple is doing very well.

“These first couple of weeks with the baby are going to be exactly what they need to get back on track,” Cummins said. “They’re going to be OK.”

But he said the online comments section after the BW article was not constructive.

“All that shit that ended up in those comments was just really hard to stomach,” Cummins said. “These people don’t know these kids. And here they are making all these judgments about them. I mean, they are the nicest kids. They would give you the shirt off their back. To be treated that way was just ugly.”

Cummins did say that A4SJ received a significant amount of donations thanks to the BW story, even more than the contributions sent to the Weavers.

Anyone who would like to donate money to either the couple or the organization can send checks payable to A4SJ to P.O. Box 17356, Boulder, CO 80308.

While I am thrilled about the news of the little girl's birth which I received notice of on the day of her birth, I am mortified by the lack of accuracy from the statements of people who spoke to this reporter.  For example: "Tom Cummins of A4SJ says the couple was shaken up by the negative comments posted under the online version of Boulder Weekly’s story," is but one example of an inaccurate statement.
I just got off the phone with Chris, the baby's father, and he told me he was not even aware of the negative comments in the original article.  Chris also stated that they had no intention of ever "running" anywhere.
It sounds like someone is projecting his own concerns onto this young couple and putting words in their mouths. 
I was also grossly misrpresented in this article in the following statement: "two people identified as “Kristina11” and “Shawn” got into a heated debate about issues such as how, and whether, the homeless couple should be bringing a new life into the world."
Shawn (whoever he is) advocated adoption.  NEITHER of us advocated abortion as this statement seems to suggest.  Shawn made several disparing comments against this young couples' fitness as parents.  I vigorously defended Lexi and Chris as capable and caring and spoke to their right to raise their own child.  I resent being placed in the same category as a guy who threatened to intercede in their affairs.  Did the reporter not read the actual comments?  For the record, I support and will continue to support this young family.
Congratulations, Lexi and Chris!!

I'm not sure why this article overfocuses on and misportrays the comments of the original article. When you read the comments they are mostly hoping for the best for this couple.  Aside from one guy who used the forum to make personal attacks on another commenter because he fixated on adoption as the ONLY option for this child, people focused on the human compassion aspect of the well-being of this family.  

I wish this article had been more about the celebration of the birth this little girl and a beautiful human life entering the world.  I continue to wish the family the best and offer my blessings to them.
