More rights urged for birth mothers

This is a thing of beauty, and this woman deserves some real props for the article.

I will say this, as an adoptive parent: we accepted Roo as a legal risk placement. Granted, it was for a revocation period of only 10 days (beginning on day 3 of his life), which I don’t believe is long enough. But the only thing that got us through those 10 days of having him without knowing if he would be our son was the knowledge that Miranda and Michael had at least that much time to be without him and make their decision again one way or the other.
