This is to the adopters that have children of parents who are fighting back. I am sickened and mortified at those who hang onto other's children. You know the difference with my adoptive parents is that my parents didn't know. But you know that that these natural parents are fighting and you still continue.

The commenter below very honestly is the kidnappers of Stephanie Bennett's child. They very honestly didn't read my blog in its entirety where as Kari did. I have to give her that much. If she considers adoption now, she will God willing consider it ethically and morally. She will be a little more aware that adoption hurts not just natural parents but adoptees. She will more likely to investigate. The anonymous poster will sit idly by gloating in her/her hidden position in Virinia/Ohio. She presumed that I was a natural mother. I am not. I am their adoptee at 42 years of age. I am the one person who has found out that her father wanted to her. I am the person who found out that her natural mother was treated deplorably by the adoption agency. I can tell you that it sets me in a rage. I am absolutely furious at what Suemma Coleman Home for Unwed mothers has done to my natural mother. She was shamed, humilated, starved, wounded and betrayed by an industry that profits of her and the millions of others.

I for one will no longer take it. I will be screaming at the top of my lungs at the injustice that was done not just to adoptees but to their natural parents.

Well heck, Amy, I get what you're saying. Totally.

Somebody actually left a long winded comment like that without first figuring out which part of the triad you occupied? That's funny! And a little scary, if you think about it. Your blog does, after all, have the address of amyADOPTEE!!! What your first mom had to endure sounds like something out of the novel, A Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. But worse. Because it actually happened. I'm sorry, Amy.

What are these people thinking?! As an adopted adult, I would be FURIOUS with my adoptive 'parents' if they kept me from my family. The only way I'd ever talk to them again would be through my attorneys, and I'd sue for damages, and 'pain and suffering'. Keep fighting the good fight, Amy!

What does make people so entitled? It's just odd.
