I started looking at adoption situations yesterday. Several birth mothers who were looking for a match had previously adopted out children.
One birth mother had given up ten children for adoption before her current pregnancy. According to the information posted, she is not parenting any children. She just loves being pregnant and loves giving the babies to couples.
But she wasn't the only one who had previously adopted out her children before the current pregnancy. I saw others who had done the same thing, only with two or three kids, instead of ten. Is this common? Is it preferable from the standpoint of a couple looking to adopt?

It is illegal for birth mothers to make money from the relinquishment of her baby. It's called baby selling and it's illegal. So therefore it's a mental thing.
If you adopted her child, how would you go about having an open adoption? Would you contact 10 other families so that your child can know it's siblings?
