Is it ok to give them away for adoption if they are severely hurt in a car accident? Or some other serious accident? 

If they can't speak, need nursing care and life gets difficult, can you give them up for adoption and be done with it? Would that be ok?

What if their accident caused a brain injury that caused low impulse control and emotional response difficulties. Would it make a mother a horrible person to say she gives up and put the kid in foster care?

What if it's cancer?  Is that ok then?

Why does it being autism make it ok?  Do autistic kids not feel love, betrayal, abandonment?

2 posts about this.  Everyone supported this mother who wants to give up on her child without making any effort to be a mother.  It's not ok.

You are a mother.  When stuff with your kid gets hard you pull up your socks and dig in.  You don't get the option of giving up, giving them away.  If you do that, you are not a mother and not a good person.  You are a weak, pathetic excuse for a mother.

Now make a post saying that you're giving your dog up because you can't handle it anymore. You'll be ripped to shreds. Kids are cool to dump though.

Sadly people want the 'perfect' child and not a 'broken' one. So yes, I'm sure there are people who would give up their child because of an accident or cancer.

Or maybe they recognise they can't give that child the life they deserve.

I know! It's like, what?!? A dog/pet is more important than a child?

I think that it's never wrong to know your limits. Regardless of the circumstances.

If people can abort because they don't want to get fat, then yes. It's all selfish and ridiculous. The only difference here is which offends you more.

I understand being frustrated, I don't understand throwing you hands up and giving up before you've even tried. Which to me, is exactly what that mother was doing.

Adoption is a viable resource for any parent who doesn't feel they can properly raise a child.

I personaly wouldn;t want to see limitations put on it. 

So yes, it's always "ok" to give a child up for adoption.
