I Don't Understand!!!

This is not about my story, but about others that I am reading, and some I saw on that stupid show "I'm Having Their Baby."

If a woman does not want her child, for whatever reason, and the father does want the child, why doesn't she just give the baby to him??? How can a woman take that decision away from him? And the court system does the same thing. I have been following 2 stories where the dad wanted the child, and the mother placed the child for adoption anyway. And now the dads are fighting in court for their children!!! And it's taking forever! With no guarantees.

Also the children who were kidnapped from foreign countries and sold to adopters here in the US. When there is proof that the child was never placed for adoption and a court in the original country demands the return of a kidnapped child, why does our government not step in? I have to admit that I have lost a lot of faith in our legal system over my lifetime. I believed when I was younger that these people were here to help us. I starting learning in middle school just how wrong I was.

I will continue to pray for all the mothers and fathers fighting for their children. And I will pray for the world to understand how wrong it is, and make some changes. Mainly that the first thing people ask is if it can't be an open adoption. It shouldn't even be brought up when no adoption should have taken place to begin with! One day these children will grow up and realize what was done to them. And I hope the kidnappers get what they deserve.

Okay my vent for the day is over now.


  1. Exactly! How can anyone fight a natural parent who wants to parent? How does the law allow this? It's insane. I'm following several of these cases too--it's just heartbreaking.

  2. It is crazy!!! A parent should have the first choice on whether they want to have their own child. One will hopefully be coming home with her dad soon. I am praying for them all every day.
