I am a birthmother, I read the article. Once again I hear the delight of the adoptive parents who have just purchased a live human being that has been removed from her mother and her culture. Yes, they acknowledged it was a sad time. But, does anybody really know how sad it is? The child has a whole in her heart that can never be filled even with all the love and attention she will get from her new familly. Will anyone ever acknowledge the fact that she has been traumatized, what about when she is a teenager looking for her true identity, will she find it? Every one is so happy, so happy that her needs get unnoticed. Adoption can be a good thing but I think the childs needs are much more important than the parents happiness and that seems to be pushed by the wayside.
