R is for Respect…..

Respect – Noun – “A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements” or Verb – “Admire (someone or something) deeply, as a result of their abilities, qualities, or achievements.”

DON’T BE LIKE ME, when I was uneducated and naive.  I thought adoption was for people who simply didn’t want their child or were low lives.  But, it is not the case at all, I love my son more than my life itself and I had my life together.  

  1. Myth: Birth mothers are unwed teenagers. Fact: Although it’s hard to get exact statistics, it appears the opposite is true. Anedotal evidence suggests that the younger the expectant mother is, the greater the odds she’ll want to parent her child herself. Younger women tend to glamourize motherhood. But older ones know the reality and better understand the sacrifices it entails.
  2. Myth: Birth mothers are drug addicts and homeless Fact: Birth mothers come from all walks of life. The main reason most birthparnets place their baby for adoption is because they lack the financial or emotional resources to raise a child. Some birth mothers may have substance abuse problems and some may be homeless, but they represent the minority.

Become educated, listen to their story, don’t judge, don’t assume. JUST RESPECT!!!!
