    My Great Sadness

    My nephew was three years old before I learned of his existence. My sister hid his birth and then gave him away without telling anyone. She was ashamed and in her fear made a poor decision. I am far angrier at her not trusting us to love her and him than her getting pregnant...

    Double Life

    I guess adoption isn't always a bad thing. It depends on the family who adopted you. For me it was a so so situation. My adoptive dad was so nice to me. He cared about me. Never talked down about me really. On the other hand my adoptive mom  was at times abusive. Cops were...

    I lost my sibling to adoption,

    the saddest and ironic part is that she was given to a family member. I dont get to see her at all because my aunt who adopted her does not talk to us. I have seen her one time, it was at her brother's funeral, not the big reunion I was hoping for, she doesn't know I'm her...

    Ok, well I was adopted 32 years ago. I have always been left out, told I was crap compared to the biological sister who is a brat. My natural parents divorced when they were young and neither wanted me, so at the age of one I was given to my adopted parents, who divorced...

    I feel like when a person gives up a child

    because they "were not ready" is absolutely bull crap! Like for God sakes the government offers food stamps, there are programs that will literally give you pampers for the baby and everything. A person that gives up so easily really just makes me sick u would even put yourself...

    Adoption Over Abortion

    Obviously the ideal situation would be for a woman (and her partner) to raise her own child. But sometimes that doesn't work out. Personally though, I agree with adoption as an alternative to abortion. You're at least giving the child a chance to live and experience life. I know...
