For those who read and commented on "Sorry Mrs. Smith...", the adoptee and I have posted a follow-up. http://cedartrees.wordpress.com/2009/10/03/sorry-mrs-smith-looking-beyond-the-story. This adoptee has bravely told her story.
International adoption or not, the parents were forced to either surrender their daughter or possibly see her die. The hospital refused to treat her, and had an "arrangement" with an adoption agency that would pay $$$. Coercion? Extortion? What do you think?

Don't you think you caused enough uproar with this story? You've already posted this question (http://www.cafemom.com/answers/299394/Have_you_seen_this_adoption_story) and you got many answers to your question before it got completely out of hand. Who new are you trying to reach?
