Stunned

I went online today to check out reviews of an adoption agency that we are thinking of using.  One of the comments on the review site dropped my jaw to the floor.  It was directed to a woman who had recently adopted, so while it wasn't said specifically to me the sting I felt was though it had been.  I can't believe that there are people out there who honestly feel this way about women who cannot get pregnant.

Ahhh, ignorance at it's best! I think you can take comfort in knowing that the majority of the population is not so moronic.

She is probably someone who has had a bitter experience with adoption. :(

It is hard to believe that someone is cruel enough to have those thoughts, let alone post them publicly on an adoption site.

I've actually had someone say that to my face. I think it took me a full 5 minutes to scrape my jaw off the floor. This woman was even more surprised when she found out we were going to adopt AGAIN.
I just remind myself they haven't been the ones praying about infertility and adoption for years...

HOLY CRAP! I can't believe anyone would say such a thing and still profess to believe in any God at all! And what of those children who would otherwise have been adopted, but under "God's Cruel Plan" were meant to never have families?? I don't know why, but the human race never fails to amaze me regarding its apathy, cruelty, and stupidity.

Hey, stay classy Miss I Know What God's Thinking At All Times! The world's a better place with you in it, obviously!
