Wow. I never expected my last post to generate so many comments, but I wanted to thank each and every person who commented as it just goes to show that there are many varying opinions about abortion and adoption and what is acceptable to write about out there.
All I can say is that this blog is my chance to offer you MY opinions. Just me. I don’t expect everyone to agree with me all the time, or even part of the time. That’s not why I’m here. I’m here to get my feelings and emotions out, regardless of what POWERDAD may think..lol. I’m an adoptee and I’m a survivor. I have a right to my opinions, just like all of you have a right to yours. Don’t want to hear what I have to say? That’s fine…just click on the “X” at the top of the screen and be gone. It’s as easy as that.
I did have just a few things I wanted to say before I hit “Publish”.
I don’t think of myself as a victim. Like I said above, I am a survivor. I am not strong because I am adopted…I am strong in spite of it. And regardless of how you try to spin my words, I do acknowledge that there are certain circumstances where children cannot live with their natural families. As I stated in my comments on the below post, I believe in guardianship. Give a child a family but do not take away their heritage and their link to their natural families.
I am really glad you have been reading my blog, but I cannot change the way I am or how I talk or write. I’m sorry if you disagree with me commenting on other’s blogs but isn’t that the whole point of blogs anyway? I cannot promise that I won’t continue to point out other blogs or sites that I don’t agree with. Again, that’s my right..just as it’s everyone else’s right to link to my blog to call me out on something they take offense to. And for the record, I’m discouraged by the conversation as well.
I did visit your blog and saw the video of you campaigning outside of the abortion clinic. You have your thoughts on the matter and I have mine. Clearly we will never agree…and while I am a bit appalled by your methods, you’re entitled to preach your God’s words any way you’d like. Please don’t tell me that I’m not Christian or am evil because I don’t go along with your way of thinking though. Judge not, lest ye be judged, right?
