Yes and no... but this is a forum for discussion- we are not putting out articles, as she did.  This is moms talking to each other.  So kind of an apples to oranges comparison.

It just doesn't make any sense for a woman who lives in England to be working for the CDC?  Wouldn't she live stateside, at least, and probably closer to Atlanta?

She's not the same Amy Parker who works for the CDC.  The author of the article lives in England.  She does NOT work for the CDC.  She is a piano teacher.  Dr. Tenpenny posted that she thought they...

I agree- I think she is flat-out lying.  I saw her Youtube video where she talks about having bipolar.  It leaves me wondering how much of this article was written because she resisted Western...

I replied to it and was promptly told that parents who don't vaccinate are irresponsible and shouldn't have kids.  Ooops.  I always regret posting on those things.  
 
The article is so full of...

I honestly just think he's a higher needs baby- personally, I think the Primal Wound is B.S.  I am an adoptee, adopted at birth, and by nature was always an "easy" baby.  My brother, also adopted at...

You have to be okay with her not wanting contact.  Even if it was an open adoption, the level of contact may have been nil- because she may have wanted it that way.  As an adoptee, I can tell you it...

I'm an adoptee, and if you want my honest advice, I would not contact her, I would instead allow her to come to you IF she chooses to do so.  She might not.  I am 40 years old, and just had contact...

I think that the whole Primal Wound thing, which honestly IMO is based on junk science and personal bias, has become really popular in the anti-adoption crowd.  I have never met an adoptee to...

It's totally legitimate to feel this way, I just want to point out how inaccurate "Just like any other person- I have one mom and one dad" is.

Right- so you have one child who knows her BM and thinks of her and I'm sure talks about her. You don't think that influences the other children?

If your son has questions, perhaps that is due to the fact that you have several degrees of open adoption in your family, and that is discussed often?
