A quote that acknowledges mothers are being deceived and conned out of their sons and daughters:
PURELY AMERICAN: LAWS, LIES AND LOVE, Dr. D. William Troxler, Capital College, 2000
"The giver is called the birth mother or biological mother or natural mother. These terms cloud the
fact that a mother who 'gave up' her child was authoritatively deceived at a vulnerable moment by her entire support system
and the professionals who were supposed to serve her."

"No matter how much they want and can love a child, most adopters are blind to the child’s pain of separation. This
does not make for good parents. Think, for a moment, how you would feel if you were expected to join in the "celebration"
as everyone dances on your mother's grave." Julie A. Rist, adoptee - "Is the U.S. Promoting Pain?"
