There had been times when I debated with myself on the subject of adoption.
- What goes on a child's mind when he was given away at such a young age?
- What goes on a child's mind when his biological parents reappear and try to claim their rights over him?
- What goes on a child's mind when he has to make the choice between his adoptive parents or his biological parents?
Meanwhile, the subject of inter-racial, inter-religion, inter-country adoption raises another subject, and by knowing a handful of people who are either adopted or adoptive parents, made me mull over this time and time again.
When one is engaged in a court battle against the biological parent, wherein both sides are placing their foot firmly on the ground, what are the concealed turmoils felt by both parents?
"He wants to be with us."
May God be with you.
