    In other words, as soon as we make it easier for people able to provide for a child's welfare to adopt, we'll have more people adopting more children.
    I have a problem with "Drop the idiotic prejudices about gay couples adopting children " and "

    Giving up a child is so very serious, it has to be emotional, it must be heart reching decision to make. A mother or parenst should never to pushed into that decision. Yes a change of mind is valid at any time.

    It's like abortion in that we cannot say "you said you want to abort" and "so SYM you made your decision too bad.. "

    Giving them time to make up their minds on what is obviously a very emotional decision is one thing.

    Giving them too many opportunities to change their minds, even after the adoptive parents have assumed care for the child in question and had an opportunity to form a bond, is something entirely different.

    It's cruelty justified by what is ultimately a selfish impulse to take back what one readily gave into the keeping of another.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Up to the point of adoption must be the absolute cutoff for mind changing.

    I'm not familliar with all the particulars of the process.

    All I know is that there's far too much leeway for the mother (and father, if he is in evidence) to have a change of heart.
