I specifically dislike ones that begin with "Looking for a Newborn Baby?" WHAT?! Let us just find the right one to fit YOUR family. Not anything about what the child needs but what will fit YOUR family. Blech. I know, I know - I am an adoptive mom. I adopted *gasp* a newborn baby. I don't know. Maybe I am a complete imbecile and live in fantasy land. I just don't think that adoption should be run like the stock market. It should not be an "industry".
There are needs out there. There are kids who need homes. There are pregnant women who need options. But it should be about the moms first. What if they can or should parent? What if you never are placed with a child because they are all staying with their bio families? We need to be just as ready to rejoice in that as we are ready to rejoice with a placement. Are you ready for that? Do you get *excited* when your agency has a lot of placements? Take a minute to think about what that means. It means more families are being broken up. More women are parting with children they've nourished and loved for nine months.
Adoption is NOT about families who need or want babies. At least it shouldn't be. . . . think about it today.
