After reading this article about a mother who gave up her adoptive baby, I completely understand her decision. This article is about a lady who desired to adopt, but could not form an attachment to the child because it was special needs. Love is not automatic. Why do can't our culture respect decisions that are most responsible and honest?
I personally shun people who criticize other people who are honest about themselves. Too many times, children suffer the consequences of non-loving parents who say differently because of cultural pressures. I personally have very high expectations and cannot tolerate a special needs child (especially Down's syndrome). I can only do best by being honest to not put myself and a child in that situation. I would probably become abusive.

It took ALLOT of courage on that woman's part to give her adopted baby up, and I applaud her decision. At least she was honest!
