I have always wondered what other people thought of this. It is probably stemming from watching too many Lifetime movies. But in all seriousness. Should a BP be able to 'change their mind' for months, or in some bizarre cases, years on the adoption of their child. Or should they not be able to change their minds at all once they sign the adoption papers?
I ask, because while I am quite certain that placing your child up for adoption is not by any means an easy decision, it doesnt seem right to me, to go back on that when your child has been taken in by a family that loves them. (just so we are clear here, this is a general question and has nothing to do with anyone specifically).

I think that it is a good and healthy thing to have 30 days to discover that you really made the wrong decision. I know that would put the adoptive parents in a more stressful situation, and the infant would have some separation issues if they were to take them back, but as luckyshamrock states these girls are making a decision that will impact their own lives until death and their baby's life in HOURS. A women many times does not even realize the love she has for a baby until she holds her baby, and by the time she is holding the baby the adoptive parents are likely waiting down the hall or somewhere nearby and how can she take everything back now? I have heard that story time and time again. She needs time AFTER the baby is born to consider her decision. .
