What Would You Do For a Baby?

Would you “pray, beg” and try to raffle off a Kindle Fire?

Would you carry large amounts of cash around the world for bribing purposes?

Would you kill a baby’s mother?

No wait, that’s crazy.

Oh, come on! If it happened that often, we’d have a name for it.

Well, let’s assume you wouldn’t kill anyone.

Would you lie to its mothers face, promising visits you never intended to allow? Or would you maybe start with good intentions and then decide the open adoption was a bad idea and move away, leaving the child’s mother no forwarding address?

Would you let the coercion that supposedly doesn’t happen to first mothers anymore work for you, using your network of friends to turn up the heat?

Would you hire a lawyer to “hammer” any first family members who dared assert their legal rights?

Would you complain and complain and complain about how unfair it is that you can’t just purchase a person outright?

Would you lie and lie, year after year, reasoning that the longer you keep that kid illegally, the more likely you’ll be awarded custody because you’re white and well-off?

Or would you be really creative and come up with a new one? How about screwing the kid’s mother, then screwing her over?

No. Nobody does such horrible things. Bitter adoptees make this stuff up.

  1. Yep, every word, besides even if it were true it’s only One here and there!!

    head shaking and sad… I opened up this post singing ‘what would you doooo for a klondike bar?’ but quickly stopped singing when I realized that it was all links…. the extent that someone would go to covet another woman’s baby is pathetic…

  3. I’ll admit it, I looked for Klondike Bar-related images and videos for this post.

    But this latest guy–talk about the lowest of the low.

  4. I know and the damn baby goes and turns something like 12 and they are all, “who is this kid?” she isn’t like us at all. Why?

  5. “Would you lie to its mothers face, promising visits you never intended to allow? Or would you maybe start with good intentions and then decide the open adoption was a bad idea and move away, leaving the child’s mother no forwarding address?”

    I know someone who would do above ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^. The people who raped me of my child did and so many more have, as well.

    To be pregnant, unmarried and vulnerable in this society is downright frightening, knowing all of the things you mentioned can and do happen.
    We live in a sick, sick society indeed.

    • i wish we kept better stats on open adoptions. I’d love to know what percentage of them are still open five years later.

      • Good question! I’ve been trying to suss that out for years, but here is one (unofficial) stat that was inadvertently released to the ether by a social worker from Bethany, where they have those open adoptions that aren’t really–letters go back and forth through the agency, or the people actually meet–anyway, she said that approximately 80 percent of the adoptions that start out Open end up Closed.

        Not a good statistic and I wish there was some way to reach unsuspecting women/teens who are pressured into giving up their babies. Many of them come to rue the day.

  6. Eighty per cent? How is it that, even after all these years, I can still be surprised by this stuff?
