Redditor Tells Her Sister That She Would Be A Terrible Mother If She Goes Through With Her Plans Of Adopting And Dumping A Child
Although adoptive parents frequently choose adoption as a practical way to start a family, the results of adoption are frequently more profound and satisfying than they could have ever dreamed. There are numerous benefits of adoption for families.
Through adoption, hopeful parents can raise a child they otherwise wouldn't be able to. Adoption offers infertile couples a surefire way to grow their family without the emotional or financial risk associated with IVF procedures.
Couples and single people can adopt children in order to spend their lives with them and experience the unique joys of parenting. All these and many more are what one stands to benefit from when one decides to adopt.
But you can just decide to adopt when you know you have plans to let that child go after some time. This is what the OP's sister wanted to do, and she brought the story to the AITA subreddit community to help judge her actions.
The OP and her sister are pretty close. So one day, the OP's sister said she wanted to adopt a newborn.
The OP was confused because she is single and has never wanted kids. When asked why she wanted to adopt newborn babies and raise them until they were 8 or 9 years old, then give them up, saying she could no longer take care of them for whatever reason, she had no valid explanation.
Read the story for yourself below.
The Story's Headline
She can no longer take care of them for whatever reason
She called the OP and told me to stop airing out her dirty laundry
Let's keep going further to read all what redditors had to chirp into this issue
That way of parenting is not being a good parent
You don't adopt a baby and give it up
What kind of mental gymnastics led you to that conclusion?
Stand your ground and do not apologize
It says something about your own bizarre morals
She's planning on doing so via non legal avenues
She should not be allowed to adopt
Please don't let that happen to that child
Your sister is not a nice person
You shouldn't assist her with the adoption process
You told your sister the truth
She's already shown you what she does with rehoming animals
Her goal is to cause mental damage
Your sister needs help on her emotional detachment
You need to tell the adoption agency her plan
This Redditor wants to make one thing clear
Why would anyone consider ruining a child's life like that?
You need to tell the adoption agency the same
That's just so wrong on so many levels
Although each adoptive parent has their own unique motivations, the main benefit of adoption is that it creates families. The OP's sister clearly didn't know what she wanted, and Redditors made that clear in the comments.
