Today, I depart from addressing these letters to my daughter to send out an urgent call for help. You know that old saying, “Birds of a feather flock together”? Turns out that so do adoptaraptors.
I have never used that term before to describe an adoptive parent but today….today it is appropriate. Actually, I don’t use it to refer to just ONE person, but two sets of adoptive parents. And trust me, it is more than appropriate. Once I have calmed myself enough to tell the story, you will wholeheartedly agree.
I am so angry right now, I can hardly put two words together intelligently to explain the situation. Let me just say the God of Israel weeps today because of these adoptaraptors.
I ask – no, I beg of any who might be reading this – to send prayers, healing thoughts, all the collective goodness and love you can muster up to fellow first mother [my friend] and her lovely reunited daughter (who is also a newly minted first mother herself). They have been treated as poorly as can be possibly imagined by these self-righteous LDS adoptaraptors.
Right now – right at this moment – there are two women in exquisite pain who need all the love and support they can glean from the universe.
P.S. I edited this post and the comments to protect the identity of my friend and her daughter. The adoptive mother in this situation….well, I don’t even know what to say about her. All changes have been bracketed both in the post and in the comments. 03/10.
