Long lost families and the not so happily ever after

16 Aug

For those of you who still think adoption is all ‘Long Lost Families’ reunions with hugs and tears and forgiveness…wake up!

Children go into care these days because their birth parents put them in harm’s way! Because they put alcohol and drugs before the welfare of their child. Because they don’t meet the child’s most basic needs.

Children these days do not go into care because birth parents were forced to give up the baby they loved by a cruel society’s backward view about unmarried teenage mothers!

In the future the reunions won’t be the joyful outpourings of love, forgiveness and the lifting of guilt we see on TV today.

Adoption in the 21st century is about child abuse, child neglect and child abandonment. Hardly the ingredients for a happy ever after.
