Thanks for saying this. There are very understandable concerns about adopting older kids. People should know their own limitations and motivations (although people are rarely honest with themselves about these things when they get into regular parenthood tbh), when they get involved with the foster care system and provide services. Some people just aren't cut out for it. I looked into it, did a lot of soul-searching and ultimately decided against it. As you said, there's the fear that I'd do more harm than good.

The whole system of sealed record adoption was set up around the idea that the biomother had committed some sort of "sin". Once the foster child was adopted he or she had to be protected from the biological parents. The sealed record laws continue, so is it surprising that people still carry the remnants in their attitudes?

I absolutely adore these pictures and what this family is doing. I seriously had a good cry reading this.
