For families who adopt, I agree that adoption is a blessing for them. It is a way for them to fulfill their desire to raise children. But, why do people keep telling pregnant women in unplanned pregnancies that adoption is so wonderful, especially people who have never given one of their children away and don't really know what it feels like? For most birth moms, placing a child for adoption is anything but "wonderful." Do people assume that it is either abortion or adoption, and if they praise adoption, and say abortion is murder, that a mom will not choose abortion? Is THAT what makes adoption a wonderful option, because it is not abortion? There is nothing "wonderful" about adoption if you are placing your child for adoption, in most cases. Many moms choose between parenting and adoption, so is adoption STILL the wonderful option for them?Answer Question

Speaking as a birth mother, I defend adoption. No it may not be for everyone, but consider this-If you had to choose between killing your unborn child and giving him/her a chance at life even if it's not with you, what would you choose? I know it's a different situation for every body. I had the beauty of having a couple that I'm very close with and consider my second parents to adopt my daughter, and I have the pleasure of getting to know her and watch her grow up and some day I will have the chance to sit down with her and tell her the truth of who I am and why she is with them. I am prepared for the "why?" and the tears and even the possibility that she may resent me at first but I'm ready for that.
