Today I thought I'd make a list of links. Some of these are blogs and some are articles that caught my eye plus a bit of info.
Articles that make you shake your head.....
This article states..... "In honor of National Adoption Month,Adoption Network Law Center is holding a submission contest, where the winner will receive complimentary adoption services. All submissions must be received by November 17, 2012 and the winner will be announced November 21, 2012." To me this equates to - "enter to win a baby!"
This one says that "Gladney will host events such as a birth mother Thanksgiving luncheon Nov. 11 to recognize them for giving a gift to loving families." I wish people would stop referring to children as presents to be given away.
Sadly too many people think like this..... “Yeah. We had our first kid a few months ago and my wife said she just hated to be pregnant, so we’ll probably adopt next time- avoid that whole pregnancy thing.”
It's all about the advertising. Buy your baby by using a FB page plus "business cards, window decals, YouTube videos, a craigslist ad and a website"
Some great blog posts happening this month and we're only 6 days in......
