Re: “When Love is Not Enough

I agree with "mommy" - that comment is inaccurate.

As an adoptive parent, I also have concerns about the "little monsters" label. The vast majority of adopted children are as delightful a blessing as any biological child could be, and maybe even more so because the parents have the joy of seeing a child go from a bad situation to a great one. Articles like this, while certainally helpful for some, also tend to make the majority of people who are not involved in the adoption community fearful of adoption, particularly when labels like the word "monster" are used to describe children.

The truth is that most adopted children, while suffering small developmental delays, are not "monsters" do not have severe psychiatric disorders, and don't exhaust their parents. In fact, not all parents choose to adopt because they cannot have biological children. I would love to see this publication write another article on the absolute joy of becoming an adoptive parent.
