Just in case anyone doubted me when I blogged below about 'jewinthesun'..I was able to google her site, even though it's private now, and am pasting her words for all to see...
The Anti-Adoption Movement
January 22, 2010
Yes, there is one, and here was my reply to one idiot’s blog posting. I can’t believe these people exist, but there’s a reason most adoptions fail:
I am usually the type of person that leaves people to their own opinons, but the vitriol in your post is maniacal at best. Sounds like you’re an extremely bitter adoptee who could use some serious emotional counseling to come to terms with your adoption. Birth has nothing to do with parenthood. For every story you throw out there, there are a hundred more of abused, unwanted children being raised by parents who had no business having children. Any state agency can tell you that. Have you ever been through the adoption process? Ever experienced infertility? Ever just decided to adopt because you wanted to give a child a better life than foster care? I don’t believe the answer to any of my questions will be “yes.” Your parents that raised you must be so proud of your disregard. Adoption is not a baby business, so it would behoove you to do some research. Adoption costs are tied to legal fees, social services, background checks. The black market baby days of the 1950’s are long over. I worked for an adoption agency, and I never saw anyone forced to give up their children, railroaded into the decision, or anything of the like. What I did see were scared young women who felt like they could not raise a child making a very unselfish decision to try and give their baby a life they could not provide. We all go through things in life in which we’re told to be grateful things aren’t worse. It’s life, and no one chose to be born. What we can do is make the best of it, and play the cards we’re dealt. You attempting to stop other people from placing their babies or people from adopting won’t change the fact that you were adopted, no matter how hard you try.
Her words really speak for themselves, don't they? Is it any wonder I couldn't contain myself from commenting??
