I over-reacted today to a post. I read into the wording that was used and took what was meant to be sarcastic as a serious jab at another member. For my mis-guided response I am sorry.
But it is also a good reminder that often we merge adoption situations all together and it starts to get muddled. Sometimes we take what is said and apply it to our situation (or what they think is another's) and if it doesn't fit - "it's on" .
Step-parent and Family adoption is different from traditional adoption
Infant adoption is different from foster adoption
Voluntary relinquishment is different from involuntary termination of parental rights
Domestic adoption is different from international adoption
On top of that, we are all individuals with differing unique experiences within these (and more) categories. The opportunities to not understand each other are vast, The topic is so personal, & risks each of us take are so great.

I am relieved that it was a misunderstanding and you were the person who we know and respect around here.
