Adoption 101: How do I place my baby up for adoption?This outrageous post on Examiner.com suggests:
You can elect to financially aid the adoptive family, receive photos and updates on your child and meet the family before the adoption takes place. It is important to do only as much as you are comfortable with.
HUH?!! I read it 3 times thinking surely it was a typo and the author mean RECEIVE fincial support from adopters, i.e. housing and medical costs....which always advise against as it creates indebtedness and disallows a change of heart.
But this is outrageous! Are they suggesting now that mothers who lose children to adoption BRIBE adopters for contact?
Wouldn't being paid to care for a child make them feel like babysitters???

I think she ought to stick to writing about what she knows something about.
