The Beauty of Adoption

I'm trying to stay off the Internet this week in order to get caught up on some paperwork and other general life-management matters (which I haven't been handling so well lately), but I find I can't resist the occasional urge to peek at my blog reader and facebook. So far I've encountered two heart-breaking stories of soul-crushing first mother grief, and several stories of adult adoptees who are seriously struggling with a variety of adoption-related issues. This is not atypical. I read such stories every week.

Somewhere in the United States an adoption worker is telling a young expectant mother that she should do the "selfless" thing and give her baby a better life than she can provide, and that adoption is a beautiful thing that benefits all involved.

Need I say more?
