I see it all the time... that is... people assuming that we, birthmoms, chose adoption so that we can get a fat check in the mail. Or, other ridiculous, hurtful comments about the subject.
I, for one, didn't get a dime, or asked for that matter. I applied for Medicaid for my pregnancy and used it as a secondary insurance (I had my own medical insurance).
I took care of myself.
I don't believe in the pap's compensating the expent mother. I completely disagree. There are financial assitance if it's needed. The only thing the adoptive parents should be responsible for paying is for the infant(s) stay at the hospital and so on.
I know I can speak for most birthmother's here... we LOVE our children more than anything in this world... and the optioni of recieving money had NOTHING to do with our reasoning for placing our children up for adoption.
