I know the type of man he was.

Of all things, I’ve been sitting here staring at a picture of my father by birth I’d never seen before, and wondering, again, why he was such a coward. And why was he so callous that he couldn’t even take the time to answer a few questions and give me my family health history. I really wasn’t asking much, I didn’t ask to meet him, just to tell me his side of the story and give me my paternal family health history, and we could call it a day.

What adoption shouldn’t be.

Long-time adoption agencies and lawyers have been dealing with adoption for decades, nothing new there, except they now compete, co-exist with an ever expanding list of *new and improved* so-called adoption service providers who call themselves consultants, whose goal is to get you (a hopeful adoptive parent) a baby, and fast.
