The Death of Enna  

Saturday, May 24, 2008

In the few short weeks I have been blogging I have learned so many things. My skills are still limited but I did not want to pass up the opportunity to help spread the word on how adoption can go so terribly wrong. I can not post links yet or add news article snippets but I can request that you take the time to read some of the thoughts of others linked here on our blog. Adopted Jane, Adoption Triad, and the Daily Bastardette all have posted links to the article about Enna, a 2 year old from Guatemala who was found dead at the hands of her adopters. They have given their thoughts on how many levels of tragedy this encompasses.

Although I stand firm on adoption having the "potential" of being a good thing, this by no stretch of the imagination falls into that category. I'm not sure this even was adoption. It is apparent from the article that even their 200 animals were better cared for, but not by much.

As a mother from the BSE (baby scoop era, where most adoptions were closed) it sickens me to think what must have been going through those children's heads and I wonder if their first parents will ever learn the truth. This is beyond sad, and it needs to be understood that adoption is not always a better way of life. People from all aspects of adoption need to become more responsible with their wishes for a child who has no say.
