When a reader on Quora.com asked other users to share the most “appalling” things that had been said to them about adoption, a lot of people shared their experiences of running into the latter sort of person. From “How much did she cost?” to “You can’t expect too much of these crack babies,” these people have run into some doozies.
There are a lot of awesome, supportive people out there. And there are a few who are ignorant and sometimes even blatantly unkind. It’s these people that sometimes make comments to adoptive parents – or even their children – that make you wonder if all of their neurons are lined up correctly.
