This is going to be an incredibly geeky post. but after watching Glee from Tuesday I was bugged.
-First thing they did wrong, Coach Sylvester telling Quinn she "lost her kid"
-Second thing they did wrong, incorrect adoption language....ALL OVER THE PLACE
-Third thing they did wrong, made Quinn totally out of control...i get grieving but this was out of control.
-Fourth thing they did wrong, Shelby trying waaaayyy to hard to get into Rachel's life. As a birthmother i understand her pain and wanting to be apart of her life. I also, however, believe in boundaries. If Josie doesn't want me to be part of her life one day then that is her choice and I will respect it.
-Fifth thing, plotting to get custody...pretending to be someone else....yucky...yucky...no no.
They did do a few things right,
- I liked that Shelby was trying to institute and open adoption. Telling Quinn she wanted her to be part of Beth's life.
-I also liked that Mr. Shu and Puckermann told Quinn how it really is and told her to grow up. She needed to hear it.
- I liked that Puckermann was so good about it. he really showed open adoption in the good light. Showing that open adoption only works when there is mutual respect and boundaries.
Really i am just annoyed with the way adoption gets so often poorly portrayed in the media. Open adoption is awesome. Adoption is absolutely beautiful. TV stop making teen moms all seem like these troubled teens who place because they could never be a good mom. that is not the only reason for placing. stop making it seem like you can never recover from placing for adoption. stop making us all seem like .... (for lack of better explanation)....like we are all crack whores who will never make anything of our life. STOP. do your research on CURRENT and COMMON adoption stories. they can be happy...most of them are. read our blog roll on the side millions of stories...happy ones.
