Are you a mom?
If so, you can ask real moms your parenting questions and get answers in minutes!
Recently, DH and I's mutual friends adopted a little girl. Ted and Janet had the baby for 3 weeks, and all of a sudden, POOF!
Authorities handed the baby back to mom!
How can this happen? Ted and Janet waited 6 years to find that they could not conceive, then 3 years for the adoption approval and to actually get a baby! Then, the $70 k+ it took to pay medical bills and adopt, and it's all gone!
Is this the new way to make money? Set your kid up for adoption, have your medical bills paid, and take the kid back?!

I feel bad for your friends. A failed adoption plan is a huge loss. The only way your friends can avoid this in the future is not to agree to a pre-birth match. Unfortunately, they are unlikely to ever adopt because there are several, scores ofÂ couples ready and willing to take that risk. btw, I have never heard of anyone spending $70k, I think the usual amount is $40k or less
