I was intrigued by Adam’s link: “Legitimacy is the most precious resource of the state and should not be frittered away like this.”
I’m also a parent of three and it isn’t so hard for me to imagine my own “B” in a similar scrape. I can’t even wrap my mind around what it would be like for Texas to give my kids to strangers.
At the same time . . . my husband and I have been considering adopting. Another thing I can’t wrap my mind around is an adoption that would never be really and truly finalized. Would you, could you, have adoptive children sealed to you in a situation like that?
I’ve got no good answers here. Anyone?
