Fed up

 23rd January 2012

I have had better days. Although for a change my depression hasn’t been the main cause of it. On the bright side we got the car this morning so it’s a luxury at the moment to be mobile. It’s made the dogs happy as well as they like travelling. It will make life so much easier when we go shopping as well.
Today I seem to have been spending half my day on a forum I run. Two of the members have fallen out and I can see both points of views. It’s sad as they are both good people who have been a good support mechanism there. Neither wants to post so I’m hoping the situation calms down soon as it would be a crying shame if neither came back to the forum.
It took my mind off one of those questions on Y!A which normally makes me vent. It was one of those questions where the person posting it is very uneducated about surrendering. She was basically trying to sell herself and her husband as wonderful potential adopters who would like to adopt a baby from a mother who wanted to give her baby away through adoption. These types of people think it is so easy to surrender a baby without actually researching the subject. It is very rare for a mother to surrender a child and not have regrets afterwards. It happens but it’s not the norm. In this day and age there is so much literature, blogs and forums that are adoption related that it never ceases to amaze me that potential adopters don’t do their homework.

About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
