After reading the train wreck that is the Bristol Palin thread and her being a spokesperson for teen motherhood, it made me wonder...... Wouldn't it have been better if they chose a teen that gave her baby up for adoption? Now I know Bristol Palin has a lot of family support and money to help her care for her child, but most teens don't. So......................... Seems to me a girl who is in her teens and not ready to take up the responsibility of teen motherhood and doesn't want to abort her baby would consider giving up her baby for adoption. There are many families out there waiting to be parents. I know first hand, my brother and his wife adopted 2 children because my SIL had Lupus and couldn't have children. One of my best friends adopted a boy a few years ago and has been on the waiting list for another child. What do you think?
