Touched by Adoption

Touched by Adoption
Dont ask stupid questions

Good Bye

Real mums are exactly that. Real mums. They feel, they bleed and they hurt. Yet some think adoption is something to celebrate. Even going so far as having a nation adoption week. Would you celebrate this womans pain?

    Did you see that woman in the black, the one holding the camera almost smirking?

    Makes me sick Tina.

    But it is what happened.

    My daughter was taken out of my arms also.

    Hiya, the video doesn't need any dialogue for you to see that the poor mother is being looked upon as an imbecile. The woman with the camera isnt even paying attention half the time to what she is filming, and are they the hospital cleaners that keep wandering in and out! Not an ounce of compassion shown!

    Perhaps, painful as it most definitely is, Britany may have indeed made the right choice for herself and her very obviously loved babe.

    There are a great many of us who are comforted - and comfortable - in our grief knowing that by deciding and allowing others to take over the role of being primary parents WAS the best decision we could make for our child.

    And nobody - even someone who isn't as secure in their decision to relinquish - has the right to question this woman or any other who ultimately did the same.
    Same as we have no right to judge those who chose to raise their child themselves.


    We know nothing about Britany, other than she quite clearly loves this child.
    Nothing of the reasons that brought her to the decision to not parent herself.

    We all know it isn't easy - probably the hardest thing we will ever do.

    So respect her decision. And her.

    Chinatears, I respect her 100%. I do not respect the people wandering in and out of film shot. Ok, they probably work in the hospital and have jobs to do but they showed total disregard for what was clearly a heart wrenching and emotional farewell for Britany. The whole point of me posting the video was to show people who judge and condemn a mother for giving her child up for adoption the realities of it. It isnt something that has been decided lightly. It must be the most painful decision a woman can make. I also want the people to see the mother for what she is and that is a human being with feelings and emotions and not an incubator 'birthmother' that falls of the planet as soon as she gives birth. Respect.
