From an emotionless place I see the wisdom in allowing families to terminate adoptions.

From the very specific lens of motherhood, and as a woman who knows more of adoption than most (to be discussed another day), I cannot comprehend this.

Here are my questions that have gone unanswered:

Why does this woman need to be on that national news?
Sometimes trying your best is still a failure. Can we admit that?
It does not go both ways, don’t blame the baby.
What about her other children? What will the biological children do when they have abandonment issues, as they should?
Where is the shame? Why is she on the Today show instead of hiding?

I have nothing nice to say to Anita Tedaldi, so I guess I’ll say nothing at all.
