This post is the second in the , Why It’s Never Helpful to Tell Adoptees to Be Grateful They Weren’t Aborted series.
After exploring this subject and bringing some
enlightenment to those who had no clue of this fact, I’d now like to move on to
bring some of my adoptee and first mother friends to talk about another related
issue in response to this question. That is, the fact that adoption and
abortion are not the same issue. After they share, I’ll wrap things up.
Deanna: Adoptee friends, why is it not helpful to tell adoptees to just be grateful they weren't aborted?
