Adoptee Dump Bonanza!!

Is it just me, or is this on the increase?

From the diplomat you love to hate, to the African-theme-bedroom designing disposer, to the Yippie-i-o-ki-ay ranch for kids with 'screwed up brains', to missing Jaliek Rainwalker (who according to this article was pending a return prior to his disappearance), and now this one who, unbelievably, claims the state 'forced her' to adopt her son. This is a new one on me, I've got to hand it to her. The crime her son committed is horrific, but claiming she was forced into a relationship, that takes the cake.

Are throwaway adoptees with boo-hoo-hooing adoptive parents on the increase? Is it being reported more? Or am I just more sensitive to it? I'm not sure.

Edit: Policy on Adoptee Returns came up in my reader after I made this post. Check it out. I gotta get back to work.

WTF????? Sorry I don't usually cuss. You know I have an un-ruly teenage daughter at home. Perhaps I should "dump" her. Geesh, un-adoption???? Camps for returned children???? This is just crazy! Yes, children have problems, as a parent you deal with it, if you just give them back basically you add more issues to a child who already has issues. Whatever happened to love being unconditional?

It does seem to be on the rise! Adopters are allowed to break the contract, but not the kids! Go figure.

This is my absolute #1 adoption-related... gripe? I guess? I don't think there's a word in any language strong enough for how this issue makes me feel... I can't even talk/think about about it clearly enough to articulate... anything. ARGH. unreal.
