It seems to me that many people simply ignore or dismiss the pain of others in adoption and pretend that it is uncommon. However, any birth mom or adoptee group that you find anywhere will prove how profoundly painful adoption can be. Adoption is for the children, right? Then, how can people dismiss the difficult challenges and loss issues that many adoptees experience? Or, do people really believe that most adoptees have no adoption struggles?
Adoption is based first on loss, how can people fail to understand that loss is painful? Adoption may be wonderful for aparents, but what about the rest of the parties involved? I know not everyone feels the same, but enough people find adoption to be a difficult experience that it should matter.
People only see the good in adoption just like they think every birth mother is selfless. If giving your child up for adoption is selfless than what do we call it when we choose to step up and raise our child? It logically doesn't make sense to call birth mothers selfless.
