I also was offended by the Aug. 1 letter concerning child abuse and adoptions. We have been blessed with natural born children, foster children and adopted children, each loved for who they are.
I have seen the heartbreak when a young mother surrenders her child out of love, knowing she cannot care for the baby. I have seen the joy of a new mom and dad adopting the baby for which they have prayed and anxiously waited for.
I deeply resent the insinuation that adoptive parents often abuse children! Yes, unfortunately child abusers come from all walks of life, but so do loving parents.
