Disrupting an adoption

this is a heartbreaking story about a family who adopted a newborn with FAS and the issues they faced.  Eventually they chose to not parent their daughter anymore.

I can easily see people judging them.  But my heart goes out to them.  I think this is a fear for adoptive parents - although people may think this is only an issue with international adoptions.  Obviously not.
