that babies are more special if they are purchased by you rather
than born to you should ensure the adoption industry a market
for babies well into the future. When there is a large market
for babies and few real orphans, exploitation of naïve young
mothers and poor families occurs.
Marion, IA (PRWEB)
September 14, 2004 -- The Middleton Doll Company recently announced
that its Lee Middleton Original Dolls Subsidiary will expand its
Newborn Nursery® Adoption Centers into five additional Saks
Department Store Group locations. The new centers will be located
in Parisian stores in Rochester Hills, Mich. and Alpharetta, Ga.,
a McRae's store in Sanford, Fla., a Carson Pirie Scott store in
Lombard, Ill., and the Boston Store at the Mayfair Shopping Center
The Newborn Nursery®
with all the dolls lined up must look enticing to little girls.
The babies are described as anxiously awaiting a loving
home. A prospective adopter is encouraged to choose a doll
that looks like her and to reject a doll that does not meet her
idea of perfection. She fills out an application which is quickly
approved. Then the prospective adopter puts on a hospital gown
and the store assistant, dressed as a nurse, gives the baby a
Will the adopter be
rescuing a baby from a bad situation or a drug-addicted
mother? Not likely. According to the announcement these are healthy
babies: Once the nurse determines the baby doll
is healthy enough to be adopted, the parent-to-be
is able to hold her new baby doll for the first time.
After the prospective
adopter is given baby-care instruction, the doll is placed in
her arms and a photo taken. The adopter receives a falsified birth
certificate on which is written the baby name she chose, a falsified
date of birth (the date of adoption may be used), and her own
name as having given birth. Later, when the adoptee becomes suspicious
and questions it, the photo of the adopter wearing the hospital
gown while holding the baby will give credence to the lie that
it was the adopter who gave birth. Before the transaction is complete,
the adopter may be encouraged by the nurses words You
are such a good mommy.
dolls sell for only $99.99, far less than a real infant who may
be purchased from a lawyer or adoption professional
for tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in United States.
Absent from the Newborn
Nursery® are the babies mothers and the original birth
certificates. Will any little girl think about this? Perhaps the
mention of awaiting a loving home provides the desired
inference - it must be that the mothers of these healthy-looking
adorable babies didnt even want them.
In reality, all infants
who are adopted must be born. They have a true birth certificate
which includes their own name lovingly chosen by their real mother
if she was permitted to do so.
By the time their
babies are born, their mothers have usually spent between six
and eight months worrying about and caring for their them. During
pregnancy, they take the dreaded large vitamin pills in spite
of morning sickness, drink milk, eat and exercise as directed
by their doctors. They delight in the feel of little feet and
arms poking out of their bellies as their baby changes positions.
They sing and talk to their babies. They often spend hours creating
hand-made gifts or selecting something special for their baby.
In the later months, their backs may fuse up at night from the
strain produced by the weight of their baby, making it hard to
roll out of bed. Labor may be a long and arduous experience and
birth may bring with it great joy over a beautiful healthy son
or daughter. Despite all this, its unlikely the natural
mother will be told You are such a good mommy. or
even have it acknowledged that she is her childs mother
at all. Instead she will be called a birth thing.
Mothers anguish over
the loss of their child in advance of birth and forever afterwards.
Having been surrounded by all the advertising for adoption and
hearing nothing of the reality, parents or grandparents may believe
adoption is truly best for their child/grandchild. Adoption lawyers
cannot be expected to be honest with the natural family - they
rarely consider anything but their own monetary interests. And
its unlikely an adoption professional will provide
honest information concerning the known life-long effects of separation
on a newborn baby and her mother, either. Its unlikely they
will offer any sort of real help or encouragement to a mother
or father to keep their child. After all, they dont achieve
angel status or get raises or bonuses for helping
real moms - they get these things for finding healthy
Over time, the adoption
industry has become increasingly clever in shaping public opinion
in order to obtain babies and build a market for them. Getting
little girls involved through play-acted infant adoption via the
Newborn Nursery® may be the best method yet. Teaching very
young children to deny an adoptees identity and heritage
will help to ensure adoptee human and civil rights violations
continue. Denying any acknowledgement of the source of the adoptable
babies encourages the continued exploitation of nice, naïve
young mothers and poor families. Teaching children that babies
are more special if purchased by you rather than born to you should
ensure the adoption industry a market for babies well into the
Newborn Nursery Adoption
What is the Message to Little Girls?
Note: "Birthmother" is a dehumanizing and coercive term,
which makes a mother appear as if she was only the source of a baby
for adoption, not her child's mother and parent. Instead of "birthmother",
"birthmom", "birthfather", "birthparent"
(aka "birth object") the honest terms "mother",
"father" and "parent" should be used. If necessary,
mothers whose children have been adopted-out may be called "natural
mothers" to distinguish them from the people who adopted their
