  • i think it's a better choice than getting an abortion, especially if you're not financially stable to have a child.

  • I think they must have had to make a difficult choice.

  • I think it's a brave thing to do. She chose life and since she can't for whatever reason care for the child, another family will and their dreams will come true.

  • I gave up a child for adoption!! I don't think anythings wrong with it. If I had decided to keep the baby he would not have the life he has now! I know the family he went to and they're a VERY well off family and will give him things I wouldn't have been able to at the time and probably now. No one will ever make me feel bad about what I did.
    Oh by the way I didn't "give up" my child, I placed him in home with loving family!

  • Must be hard to do. I have respect for them for doing what they think is best for the child. I couldn't do it.

  • I feel very respectful and (though it's not about me) proud of the decision they made. They truly understand the notion of "the best interests of the child" unlike many who think you have to keep a child, even though you have no ability to care for him/her. Birth parents who give their biokids the chance for a really great future are making the hardest decision they'll ever make, and giving an incredible life to their offspring and the parents who adopt, love and nurture "chosen" children.

    I have huge respect for their bravery, kindness and selflessness.

  • I think that it takes a hell of a lot of courage!! And I praise whoever is doing this, to choose adoption rather than abortion!! I think it's wonderful to give a child to a family that really deserves one or has wanted one for so long but hasn't had the chance! I think adoption is a wonderful, beautiful thing!!!

  • I have a lot of respect for a person who can do that. So much better than an abortion. To me you would have to be very couragous and very selfless.....

  • What is there to think? I really don't understand questions like this.

  • I think it is a very hard thing to have to do, I totally support moms who decide to give their baby for adoption for a better life.
