Dr. Ms. Feverfew –
So us mothers put up with a lot of crap from people who are either to dumb to know better or to mean to care how various labels may effect a woman who has lost a child to adoption. I have been referred to as everything from a mildly noxious “birth mother” to a patently offensive and derogatory “breeder.” Today though…today I was called something that is so sickening I want to vomit.
She called me a brood sow.
Yes, a potential adoptive mother referred to me as a brood sow.
Now I have heard it all.
P.S. Just had to add that one of the brilliant ladies on the forum that came to my defense had the best response: “So you are content being just a plain old sow then?” Still laughing over that one!
