The Best Thing for the Child

Just a follow up to my previous post...

There is a wonderful post about this attitude from the first mother's perspective on the Adoption Animal House. (In case you aren't familiar with it, it's a blog written by an adoptee and her first mom.) "The Lie That Keeps Working" is the post.

It really hit home for me. And I wanted to share since it follows so closely on the heels of my own reflections on this issue.

Thank you Phil. I was completely amazed when I read what you had written. If we can both get to the same place from very different perspectives I think we have arrived at one of the truths of adoption. That lie is the root of all evil and it is damned persistent.
