Would like to share a post with you titled, "Young Moms and Coercion in Adoption."
"I UNDERSTAND it’s heartbreaking for an adoptive couple to plan for a baby, get their hopes up for the baby, and to expect the baby… and have the mom change her mind. However, at the same time, they need to understand the heartbreak it causes a mom to actually sign away her rights and to walk away from her child." -OnceLost
This isn't an isolated incident. When a mother does not sign relinquishment papers, we have to see this for what it is - not a "failed adoption" but successful parenting. Wonderful. The best of all scenarios. We have to grasp this. This must change.
