UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

One would think a worker at the agency would know the correct terminology and that the proof reader would realize that they quoted her twice.
The law says you cannot give your baby to somebody without taking the mandatory legal steps.

the story:

Stevens Point police allege Bobbi Jo, 32, and Jason Dolski, 30, took a baby from a woman more than a year ago illegally.

The couple faces charges of child abduction, unauthorized adoption and lying on a birth certificate. They’re being held in Portage County Jail.

Adoption is a complicated process that must involve a licensed adoption agency.

The danger of giving your baby away without the legal documentation is not knowing what could happen to the child.

Hope Pregnancy Resource Center in Wausau works with women facing pregnancies they weren’t expecting.

The executive director wants birth mothers to realize they do have support, and that it’s a good idea to get lots of information and weigh your options before making any major decisions.

And if you do decide on adoption, you must seek professional help from a licensed agency.

“Now it’s worked out that birth mom really has a lot of control. Now she can if she chooses, she can choose the family, she can interview the family, she gets a biography about the family, so pictures and things that she’ll know about the family,” said Janna Janke.

Many birth moms choose to have an open adoption, meaning they can have direct contact with their biological child throughout his or her life.

“Now it’s worked out that birth mom really has a lot of control. She can choose the family, she can interview the family, she gets a biography about the family,” Janke said.

She says unfortunately many women who face unexpected pregnancies are scared, in denial and feel alone.

And that’s when support is so important.

According to Lutheran Social Services, though you can’t buy a baby, birth mothers can receive up to $5,000 in some cases. But that’s only for a birth mom’s needs such as medical expenses, helping with rent, and transportation costs.

On average, about 120,000 children are adopted each year in the U.S.

 

Again, I had control of the situation?  Oh yes that is right    never did I have any control.  I don’t have control now and I didn’t then.

I did not have the biography of the paps.  I only received a 2 page selling.

    This article is atrocious in so many ways–poorly written, disorganized, and in some cases just not right (as in your lack of control).

    “According to Lutheran Social Services, though you can’t buy a baby, birth mothers can receive up to $5,000 in some cases. But that’s only for a birth mom’s needs such as medical expenses, helping with rent, and transportation costs.” <—This quote is horrible, its like its saying, "well, TECHNICALLY no one will pay you for your baby, except for that $5000 you could get."

    Bleh
