I wonder if people really NEED to believe that most mothers who relinquish generally freely "choose" adoption and do not love and/or want to parent. Many adoptive parents insist that the birth mother of their child did not want to raise her child and wanted them to do so. How is it possible to believe that is true in most cases? Maybe it is true in rare exceptions, but most of the moms I have met over the years wanted to parent. Relinquishment was a desperate, reluctant act, not generally something they WANTED. Most felt they had no other options, and they were encouraged to place. It is painful to acknowledge that babies are often placed for adoption for lack of supporting their mothers, but, it is often a reality. I know that their are many available programs to help mothers. But, many moms in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy are not as aware. But, info about adoption is abundant.Answer Question

Dannee, I'm confused. You say that you disagree with SR, but then you say " Our birthmom wanted to parent but was unable to do so.." But that is what SR is saying; That women don't chose adoption because they don't want to parent.
