Most of you know how I feel about the importance of children being raised by two functional and healthy parents, who can provide and protect that child so that they can have a better chance to go out into the world to be productive, functioning and law-abiding citizens. That’s why when I was asked to spread the word about tonight’s premiere of the new season of I’m Having Their Baby, I was all for it. If you’ve never seen the show before, the theme of it centers around expectant mothers in precarious situations, or for a variety of reasons, are unable to raise their babies, and the adoptive parents who go on the highs and lows of the process. Take a look at some of the drama in this clip…
This season will delve deeper into the lives and love relationship of the birth mothers who are in the process of deciding whether or not to adopt, and how friends and family members react to their decisions. One thing that stood out for me in the clip was seeing the black women choosing adoption for their unborn children. I find that especially noble, considering that the dysfunction faction of the black community scoffs upon adoption, despite what the ravages the out-of-wedlock birthrate has wrought.
Some folks may have mixed feelings about watching this reality show, but I don’t—it’s one I’m looking forward to watching. It’s nice to see a show about people acting like adults and making decisions that best for other people besides themselves.
I’d love for you guys to take a look at the show tonight and come back to let me know what you think…one commenter will win a $50 Visa gift card, courtesy of the Oxygen Network.
