Giving Someone Else’s Kid A “Better Life”

“They don’t have to worry about where they are gonna go the next day or the day after, its permanency for them.”   OR  “I want them back. They should have never been taken from me…”

There was a protest outside of an Iowa court house this past weekend.  Because Jeanne Munson wants her grandchildren back.  I repeat:  she wants HER GRANDCHILDREN back.  But some adoptive parents like Julie Hess think it’s better if they just go with her.  Because…”stability” and safety and all.  And because Adoption Saturday is reason to celebrate:   “…if it wasn’t for the state and other adoption agencies, Hess says there would be nothing worth celebrating on ‘Adoption Saturday.'”
