A-moms current and potentential

There has been lots of discussion about posts on other blogs from two women, one an unhappy adoptive parent and one a potential adoptive parent. These two women have been incredibly honest one stating that adoption is not her first choice and the second saying that she regrets adopting two children because it appears she finds the demands of motherhood overwhelming.

Too me this does nothing more than indicate that adoptive parents are human. So what’s the matter with that. The problem is they are not sold that way. Sold to whom? To those being told that surrendering their child to adoption is the best option for them and the child because there is a perfect home waiting. A home with perfect people. This is ludicrous of course because there are no perfect people. No one can make any such guarantee.
