As an Aparent, what feelings do you have for the bmom's other children? Do you ever feel guilty about the child that you are raising being so comfortable and happy and having all of these advantages when you know her other children are not (if they are not)?

You've explained your faux pas, but still I feel your post is insulting. Isn't the very premise that a birth mom gives her child up for adoption because she's not ready to parent? Isn't the inference that she then goes on to finish her education, start a career, meet "the one", and then go on to have a family when she's ready? Despite your explanation, you obviously assume every birth mom is poor, dysfunctional and on drugs.
I say you take a good long look at how you view birth mothers. Many of us went on to be doctors, lawyers, politicians, nurses, SAHM's, etc., etc.
btw, many of us would give up the careers we went on to persue to get our children back. Sometimes the big house and the fast car in the garage just feels like shit.
