"The horrors of war pale beside the loss of a child." - Joe Soll, C.S.W.
|DISEMBABYMENT - How Our Babies Were Taken|
In 1984, a 22-year-old woman learned she was pregnant. She and her baby's father were separated. The dad was not wealthy and neither was the mom. Her "Christian" parents were middle-class, but they said that to help her out with her baby would be committing a mortal sin - she must "give" her baby away. She reluctantly told the baby's father ... and not long afterwards he committed suicide.
Fathers often suffer over the loss of their children. Other fathers are relieved when their child is adopted because they don't have to bother with child support. If they are planning to run for office or they are religious leaders, they are more concerned about public opinion than they are about their own son or daughter. Sadly, the Dads who want to abandon their children get better treatment in our society than the Dads who want to take responsibility. By "society" I mean the United States of America.
This page is dedicated to fathers who lost their babies to adoption. The adoption promoters say you are just "birthfathers". We say you are real father - you are heros - if you tried to support and love your child and work with his mother.
Though we are dismayed that the disparaging word "unwed" and "birthfather" is used in this article, we applaud the dad who tries to take responsibility for his wonderful child.

In many states, a dad has to sign the "Putative Father's Registry" IN ADVANCE or he - and his child - are essentially SCREWED.
Eric L. Smith has written extensively about the Putative Father's registry and we suggest you look up all his articles.
Because the laws differ from state to state, adoption businesses often MOVE THE NAIVE MOM TO A DIFFERENT STATE TO GET A BABY TO SELL TO CUSTOMERS. The adoption businesses make money. Infertile people and gay people get babies. Babies get "replacement" parents in spite of the fact that they have real moms and/or dads that love them.
