I wish the schools...

I wish the school's would teach more about adoption...I feel adoption is not talked about enough so there for teens dont know their options like they should.

Your thoughts?



We thank god for our infertility everyday!!

Re: I wish the schools...

probably depends on the area you live.. don't know about school around here, but I know in my HS a friend of mine was raped by a cousin (I think, don't remember if it was a relation or not for sure) and she placed the baby for adoption... she was only 15... she spoke to some of the health classes about her experience and I know the youth pastor at our church had given presentations on abstinance also - but that was almost 15 years ago, so I don't know if the school allow that anymore because of "church and state"
Praying for #2 - either by birth or adoption

Re: I wish the schools...

You are right, it's not talked about enough. I used to be a teacher so of course, when we adopted DD#1, my students knew ALL ABOUT adoption. A co-worker had a little girl who had been adopted in her class that same year and the girl was very open about it. Her parents even brought in cupcakes to celebrate her "Gotcha Day".

I think it's just not something that comes up in normal conversation in classrooms.
