Offensive term

I find your use of the term natural parent offensive. As an adoptive parent myself that term deems me to be the unnatural parent. As a social worker I’m surprised you used this term as it’s something I expect from lay people, not those in our field.

Libby, thanks very much for pointing this out. A mom is a mom. Period! And words matter, I was trying to point out the deep trauma of parental abandonment to young children (and all Beth received later from her mom who loved her and changed her life), I should have found a better way. I so appreciate your writing! SaraKay
