I'm mad right now..so mad, in fact, that I'm writing twice in one day when my blog posting has been sporadic at best lately.
There's this poll that you can vote on...did you know about it? It's run by Circle of Moms and it's to vote on the Top 25 Blogs by Moms. It's for mom bloggers who write about adoption and foster parenting.
So far so good?
Amanda from The Declassified Adoptee and Claudia from Musings of the Lame are in contention still...but the Powers That Be over at Circle of Moms have decided that Cassi...sweet, beautiful Cassi of AdoptionTruth needs to be silenced and have taken her out of the competition.
See, they rigged their contest. It's open to adoptive parents, foster parents, adult adoptees, birthmothers, etc. etc. etc...but...here's the issue...and why they kicked Cassi so unceremoniously to the curb. They only want bloggers who talk about adoption in a positive and supportive manner. ::insert projectile vomiting here:
I'm glad that Amanda and Claudia are still fighting the good fight and getting the word out...but I'm sad that anyone else who disagrees with adoption as it stands now are always being seen as pariahs.
Sorry Circle of Moms...you've got it all wrong. Shame on you.
I'm an adult adoptee. I'm a mom. And I'm positive that I don't support adoption. Can I be on your list?
