Only if they were required to always identify their connection properly and how they personally benefit from adoption.As an atty they would need to include they make money when successfully placing a child.
The reason why this could be an issue is because there are groups where women ONLY considering adoption ask questions.The woman needs to know if there is a benefit to the person encouraging adoption. This is much more profound than nutrition or beauty advice.

Actually no .It is a place for vents.I don't care for the witch that is overseeing my reunion with an 35 y.o. adult .She is angry ,angry at her birth mother and has told me in way to much detail for a strictly professional relationship.
She worries me because she clearly lets her anger color what she says to both me and my oldest.I have been known to vent about her in one of the groups and wouldn't want her there maybe realizing it is her I am stressing over.
She has every right to feel how ever she feels about being adopted and her birth mother but that does not make every job correct for her.

Why not? I am fine if politicians or people that work in media are in Politics and current events, or stylists being in Beauty and Fashion, or health care professionals being in the Health section or nutritionists being in Diet & Fitness, etc. Why would it not be okay for them to be in the section they specialize in?
