Should grandparents be able to adopt their grandchildren?
I have nothing against Grandparents adopting their grandchildren because my SO was adopted by his grandparents after his mother was brought to the hospital in labor with meth in her system and he had drugs in his system too when he was born. She had the chance to get him back, but failed to ever visit him while he was in a group home but when his grandparents tried to adopt him, his mother got a lawyer and was 100% against it, obviously she lost. But I think he's a wonderful person today because of the fact he was raised by his grandparents who were good people and his mother was not.
But my cousin who is 23 just gave birth to a baby from a one night stand and forgot to take her birthcontrol and she wanted to give him up for adoption. But her parents told her that if she was going to give their only grandchild up for adoption, they were going to adopt him and raise him as their own. She would be able to visit him as much as she wanted but all parenting rights would be theirs. She told them no, that if they did that, her mistake would have to linger with her and she wouldn't be able to "get away from it" and that she would take legal action against them.
What do you think? Would you let your parents adopt your child if you didn't want them and they wanted to adopt them?
