Adoption is an important part of society. Children need adequate parenting and if their first parents don't think they can do it, then it is responsible and good of them to find someone who can. Of course, it might not be the voluntary adoptions that worry you. The ones that are involuntary are definitely troublesome. Those parents do need to be more responsible before that sort of thing is required, but it could simply be out of their control like an addiction or mental illness or something and again the kids are most likely safer in an adoptive home... if it is a good, thoroughly home-studied adoptive home, of course, and counseling is involved. Adoption is not perfect and things like reactive attachment disorder do happen so don't get me wrong, but mental illness can and does happen in biological family homes as well. Now, if there were better sexual education in Illinois there might be less need for adoption so if you really want to reduce adoption rates, do whatever possible to get that comprehensive curriculum in our schools. The lack of a good education, that's what should disgust you, discusted.

I was adopted and extremely happy that my biological parents were selfless enough to think about ME instead of themselves. They were 19 and 20 year old college students at the time I was born. They weren't ready to start a family and had no means to support me. My adoptive parents were married for years and were unable to have children themselves. I'm sure they are very grateful someone was able to give them the incredible gift of a child.

make sure that you were given the right info. Most A-parents do not tend to give adiquit info(not saying your did not) but it happens all over the world. Some fathers in this area were not even part of adoptions, some didnt even know of child at all. Open adoption is always best at any cause. The adoptee will always know who they are and where they comefrom without questions in their lives! As a search Angel I know too well about Birth parents who regret the desision and adoptees who find me to search for there Bi parents as they grow!
