The internet has opened up so many opportunities for birth mothers to reunite with children they have given up for adoption. It is causing some ethical questions for everyone involved. A recent story on the Today show talked about birth moms contacting the children they gave up for adoption, some before they even talked to the adoptive parents.
Social media has opened up a whole new world for adoptive parents and kids. There use to be people who were “middlemen” between adoptees and parents. Now millions of people are on Facebook and Twitter and easier to find than ever.
There are children who have no idea they were adopted and with this new trend, parents who’ve adopted children now have to worry about something else. What do you think? Is there an easy answer to this? Should adoptive parents have some kind of rights regarding birth parents contacting their children?
