Adoption matters

I believe this is so uplifting and reveals a new light on adoption. Because I feel a lot of the time the birth mom is left in the dark. But this brings them into a new light and shows there’s beauty and truth in adoption.

Birth mothers matter

Incredibly predatory. Sad. Help women keep their children! But then I guess there’s no money in it fo you
