I've noticed that sometimes posters here are hesitant to state the name of an agency that has unethical practices, or if they've had a bad experience. I do not criticize that choice, but I'm curious as to why. I know there are people who visit this forum who are hoping to adopt. It seems like this would be an opportunity to let them know some important information about agencies or facilitators. I think the vast majority of PAPs want to work with an agency (etc.) that will treat the emoms and themselves fairly.

Just to be clear I did not mean my first response to be down on anyone. I mention the b-mom group only because I find them to be the ones with the most information about the subject (onethentwins had a journal post about this topic for example) and are the most vocal about it. They also generally have reasons to be suspicious of people at agencies and adoptive mom's as well. I should have clarified that what I find insulting is to be lumped together with a-mom's who do have that attitude of entitlement. I worked very very hard to make sure that my children truly needed a family and I had done everything I could to help their bio family first.
