 Without knowing the circumstances, just upon hearing a woman gave a child up for adoption, would you think less of her or judge her negatively?

No, my twin brother and I were adopted.  We would have had horrible lives if our birth mother had kept us.

if she's giving her child up for adoption at least she's giving her child a chance and not aborting.

no i would not think badly of her giving up a child is a heart wrenching decision and im sure that there are good reasons to do so .i think its a selfless act

I would almost think more of her.  I think it would be one of the most difficult things ever to carry a baby for 9 months, give birth to it, and then give it away.  That is a strength that I don't think I could ever have.

As an adoptive mother there is no way I could ever think less of a first mom... She deals with an incredible loss every single day while I have the joy of raising our daughter. It hits me so very much every year about this time.

My dd is adopted from China and her 3 year family day is in 2 days. I pray for her first family every day that they have some peace that our dd is safe and loved. I cannot imagine the grief that first moms feel all of the time. It is very humbling for me... I've lost a child, adopted a child and given birth to a 3rd child and I know how I've felt about all 3 of my girls...It must be very difficult for Lilly's first mom to have no idea whether our dd is alive or not....sigh...

it depends..some women dont give the baby up....they get taken away...so it honestly depends on the woman and what i think of her
