Every year the amazing Pound Pup Legacy counters the putrid drivel of the Congressional Angels of Adoption Awards with their own “award”: The Demons of Adoption Award. You still have time to add your nominees or comment on those listed. I’m listing here those I added to the mix; these are mostly taken from years of collecting and cataloguing the Very Worst of Adoption at Destroy Adoption Mythologies Now (DAMN).
I second the nomination for Adoption Apologist Adam Pertman.
I would add the following Adoption Horror Shows:
DR. JANE ARONSON | For keeping the fires of colonialism alive by referring to Ethiopia as “Abyssinia” while performing a similar whoring out to celebrities like Mr. Pertman.
SHARON SIMONS | Of “Mom at Last” web site fame, whose ignorance of everything except how white she wants her family to be creates a morass of Adoption Waste Sediment that will never wash away. Creator of the AdoptionApp which lets you “phone home” an awaiting child.
MARDIE CALDWELL | The usual suspect. Still building and maintaining baby farms, which are categorized by race.
MIRANDA DEVINE | The conservative media mouthpiece of Thatcher-era familial and communal destruction, attempting to undo the barely “reformed” Australian adoption laws and demanding retractions of apologies to mothers.
PLANET HOSPITAL “SURROGAYCY” | An offense against offense. Satan himself cries when he reads this web site.
I could go on and on. But I’ve just ruined my day, and it’s only 8:00 a.m. Feel free to report any of the above to relevant Attorneys General, Better Business Bureaus, Anonymous types, and Hacker relatives or friends.
