Just a quick note to Prospective Adoptive Parents,
A mother who chose adoption is likely to regret in one or many points in her life, that she isn’t parenting her child, or that she was in a place where she felt adoption was her only choice, or any of the many reasons why she’d feel regret.
This should be common sense to everyone, apparently it’s not – so I’m pointing this out.
It’d also be pretty hypocritical to laud first mothers as loving their children enough to want better, and then, be upset that they regret having to choose adoption in the first place.
If you’d be upset, unless you are a despicable person, then her regrets wouldn’t be directed at you, they’d be her own regrets anyone would have. If you wouldn’t be able to comprehend why, or accept that the mother of your child regrets that she isn’t parenting her child, then adoption is not for you.
FYI – I certainly hope my mother regretted not parenting me…
