  • IDK. Why don't you message the mom and ask her what she meant?

  • I KNOW! I have never met someone who's anti-adoption. I don't understand how it's even possible. If abortion isn't an option, but you don't want to or can't keep your are you supposed to do?

  • Abortion is an option though. Maybe she meant she's not for giving up for adoption, but would rather abort if she were in that place?? Just ask. I'm not a big fan of adoption myself. But it is how it is.

  • Some people feel adoption is equal to buying/selling a child. *shrug* I don't get it, myself.

    If a child needs a mom and the BM can't/won't take responsibility, adoption is a logical alternative.

  • I would send a personal message to that Mom, hard to interpret where she is coming from.....maybe she was adopted herself?
