Was this the show they'd been advertising a lot all season? Where the mom loves her "normal" daughter but is ashamed of her other daughter? Even the commercials made me cry....
When dh and I found out we'd have twins, an unplanned (unmarried) pregnancy, we thought about giving them up for adoption. I look back on that know, having found out they're disabled, and I'm so thankful they're with us. No one but their parents would give them the kind of love and patience they need. I mean, I know there are some saintly adoptive parents out there, but it's a parent's special job to love their kids no matter what. At the darkest moments of raising my boys, when their illness seems so all encompasing, unfair, and brutal, I'm comforted by the fact that, even if it makes life really, really tough, at least *we're* the ones raising and loving them.
I feel sorry for that woman. Something in her must be terribly hurt to deny love to her daughter. Makes me think of the grinch...that his heart was five times too small.
I really hope someone out there (authorities or otherwise) can offer that girl a better home. I hope the mom loves her at least enough to let her go.
