Re: “Ann Fessler's adoption project, in print and on display in Durham

Ann Fessler's "The Girls Who Went Away" is an excellent read for anyone open to learning what really happened to the women who surrendered their babies during the Baby Scoop Era. Sadly, although tactics have changed since then, adoption is still very much an industry in North America. Young mothers (and fathers) are still coerced into signing adoption papers under the guise that adoption is in the best interests of their children -- even though research has shown adoption to have very negative consequences for adopted people. It's time to take the money out of adoption and instead invest in family preservation and other forms of custody that protect, rather than exploit, mothers and children. Sincerely, Jessica DelBalzo author of "Unlearning Adoption: A Guide to Family Preservation and Protection"
