All Birth Mothers on Drugs and with Criminal Records?
My husband and I keep hearing that almost all BM’s are on drugs and usually have criminal records. Is this true? We were matched recently and in the interview with the BM she accidentally gave her last name. We looked up her criminal record and were floored!!! We started to fear our own safety- we decided not to go through with the adoption. The only thing is, we keep hearing from the agency and others that these BM’s are all in that situation and many are scammers too. I do not trust the statistics now on 20% of BM’s changing their minds- I have a feeling there is a lot more and it is just not being reported. Anyone have any light to shed on this? Anyone experience the same? Or fear the same? What do you do? We are also starting not to trust the agencies as they should be doing these background checks fully including those on the boyfriend- regardless if the guy lives with her or not… talk about an eye opener. I want a baby, I am just not ready to fear for my life each and every day!
