Adoption? How do I "give up" my baby for adoption?

Depending on how you came across this blog you may be intrigued or even offended. Please trust me that it is not my intention to offend. I am just using this opportunity to prove how offensive this is. The truth of the matter is that in speaking with hundreds of people looking to place a child for adoption, many of them do not say “place my baby” or “place my child”. They use the term “give up”. This choice of words is not a reflection on the person uttering them necessarily, it is just the way society, and mostly “Hollywood”, has phrased the most amazing selfless act a woman and man can do for a complete stranger. I will not bore you with the historical background of why “give up” or, more specifically, “put up” came to be the term used by the masses when refering to adoption. The important thing is that we all learn that these amazing women and men are not “giving up” on anything.
