That being said, under the terms "forced adoption" "exiled mothers" and "adoption industry" are mothers, children, families and communities hurting from the same destructive things we talk about in other topics.
Lack of informed consent/refusal.
Lack of basic information.
And then afterwards, no acknowledgment and no healing.

I was just reading through your comments on your status posted about adoption as an option and it really stuck with me. I got pregnant my senior year of high school. I was that "party girl" that no one was really surprised to see end up knocked up.
I am sure most people would have said I would have been better off choosing abortion or adoption but I knew I could do it. I re-dedicated my life to God, I stepped up and tried to learn everything I could to be the best mom I could be for him.
I am now the mom to a healthy, intact, breastfed (toddler on demand) vaccine-free, gently raised and loved happy little 2 year old boy who is my entire world. He also made me realize what I want to do with my life and I am applying for 2 different midwifery schools over seas.
I also feel like God has really laid it on my heart to try to change the way children are viewed and treated in the Christian community. (Referring to adoption being the replacement for abortion and wiping away the mistake.) I relate to so many of your posts and rants.
