Warning: what I am going to say is MEAN.
I'm very bothered by the picture of adoption painted in this post of Tertia's.
On the other side of that "meant to be" what is there? Nothing. A nobody. No thought, not even an inkling of braincell activity in her direction. Nothing to the woman who gave this child life. Why? Is she not worth mentioning? Is she garbage?
So a baby comes from, where, a stork? And lands at an adoption agency, where some suffering infertile gets the call that makes her life complete? And what happens to that other life, the one which was not worth mentioning? Too bad she wasn't valuable enough to be included in this beautiful connectedness.
I've read this 3 times before commenting. The emotions are almost too much to handle, but so glad that the story has such a wonderful ending - for EVERYONE involved!
I love "things working out for the best" stories.
They keep me clinging to this idea that there is order in the universe...
A orderly universe that involves broken familes and desperate women in crisis? Nice.
Wow...Amazing...Don't even know what to say. I am so happy everyone involved got their happy ending.
Uh huh. Everyone.
That's what is so great about being human, I think is being able to experience such rich emotions...
And simultaneously ignore so much pain! Yes, we humans really are something special.
