Poll Results: "Adoptress Letter"
I'm not suprised by the poll results for the "adoptress" letter -- 65% of respondents said the author of the letter, assuming she really was an adoptive parent, was deranged. Twenty-nine percent thought the letter was a satire. A few commenters thought the letter might have been written satirically by an adoptive parent taking to the extreme what some APs feel adult adoptees and first mothers want adoptive parents to do. But notice that NO ONE, not one adoptee or first mother, voted that the author of the "adoptress" letter was admirable. And first mother Cassi, with her usual wisdom, reminds us to have compassion for those hurting because of adoption, including the adult adoptee upon whose blog I found the "adoptress" letter.
