Do you think it's cruel my SIL won't see the child she gave up for adoption?
When my SIL was 14 she was raped. She didn't realize she was pregnant for a long time, and by the time it was obvious it was too late for an abortion. She gave the child up for adoption.
The child was a girl and is now 18 and named Katie. SIL got married two years ago and has a baby now. Katie tracked her down, even though SIL thought it was a closed adoption, and called her. Katie said she'd like to meet and possibly form a relationship. SIL said no thanks, she's not interested, and hung up.
My MIL thinks she was being really cruel and that she should meet. What do you think? I'm on the fence- it would be devastating for a child who'd like to meet a bio-parents to hear that, but SIL probably just doesn't want to relive that time.
