First, I want to wag the Dumb Toe of Ugliness at the adoption system in this country. For shame! It is a sick system indeed that gives adoptive parents a newborn for almost two months then says, “Oh, by the way, your child may be taken from you, and it’s possible that you won’t know one way or the other for several months.” While I respect the rights of the birth family, I don’t think anyone should be allowed to bring that much pain and uncertainty to someone else’s life.
But I also want to give thanks to the legal system that miraculously cut through all the bullshit and did the right thing for the baby in question. She will stay with her adoptive parents and that’s where she belongs.
Congratulations, K&S, to you and your beautiful baby!
