It seems that most questions in this category get negative answers towards adoption. Adoption is a beautiful thing! I had a friend give up her baby when she was 17. She was fully intending on raising her with her parent's help, but she realized she was not ready to parent. SHE decided to persue adoption, no one forced her or even mentioned it to her. She chose a wonderful family & her daughter is now 11, and doing great! And STILL an open adoption (even though it was only required for 5 years). My friend had another baby last May, and her first daughter knows all about it. Adoption is not a bad thing!
I think when someone has a negative experience with adoption they are unable see that their own personal experience isn't a reflection of the whole adoption process. Emotions run high when it comes to anything like this that changes your whole life.
