For You To Think About

This past spring, the popular MTV True Life series aired a documentary titled, “I’m Placing My Baby for Adoption,” which followed two women who considered adoption during their unplanned pregnancies.

Attorney James R. Marsh  reports that the shows producers set clear goals for the drama: to help de-stigmatize the adoption process, to show that adoption is a choice that loving, responsible mothers make when they believe it's best for their child, and to express the range of emotions birthmothers experience during the decision process.

Even in the most scripted environment – recorded television –  the courageous decision to place a child for adoption could only be made by one person: the birth mother.

For You To Pray
