Birth Mom Article

So as I mentioned in this post, I am staying with my grandparents this week.

They both read the newspaper quite a bit, and my Oma happened to mention to me while we were eating dinner, that she read something in the newspaper about "Birth Mothers Day".

This article put both a good and bad taste in my mouth.
read will see what I mean.

I despise how they say "giving up" for adoption. it's "placed"
can I just say that I cringe every time I hear someone say "give up"?

I didn't give Avery up.
I placed her with her family.
(like I don't say that enough!)

I disagree with some of the things mentioned in the article, and I think they take some things a little too lightly, which will cause harsh feelings.
as shown in some of the comments.
(but only some...most of them are awesome.)

Over all it's a good Article. Especially when they mention "coley". Her and I are both on Mrs. R's Birth Mom Panel.
(if you don't already read her blog, I highly recommend you start)

While reading,
I found this awesome idea that was mentioned in the article.

The Celebrating Adoption Walk.

It takes place this saturday May 9th, 10:00 am at Provo High School.
(125 N. University Ave.)
I'm going.
you should too!!

Don't Forget to wear white or an adoption shirt!!

First of all, HI! I've read your blog before but never actually commented and thought it was about time since we are both on Mrs. R's panel....

Secondly, I totally agree with you about the article. I hate, hate, hate the "give up" phrase! I'm glad the reporter used "placing" in the bit about my adoption as that is how I said it to her when being interviewed.
