The adoption programme over at channel 77 Astro gives very heartwarming stories of adoption. The adopted kids are really welcomed into their new homes and showered with lots of love .

When posed the question of whether any adopted kid would want to trace his natural parents one day, daugter replied." I would want to. I want to know the reason why they gave me away."

I was nearly given away , so I heard , because I was the fifth girl to be born to my parents. That would have been an unacceptable reason to be given away , right?


  • Hard to say, since Asians have so many pantangs, back then.

    But, it wud hurt alot, if that was the only reason!

  • perhaps some parents miss the point of having children in the 1st place - someone to share their love 7 affection with. i think daughters are more likely to look after the parents than sons, but of course, there are exceptions as well.

  • In life, we all have our share of heartaches. Some seems to have a bigger share. To each his/her own.

    Giving up children should be a painful thing to do for all parents. Each one has his/her story behind... and there is no similar one.

    We really can't judge...

  • mott and yan, yes,things are often not what they seemed

    doc, want to persuade wife to have a go at another daughter?
    Or adopt? I agree with you about what you said about daughters. Wish I have more too but alas....

  • I think it is sad to be given away. Of course I have the perspective of causiing my mom to flee her home city because of an unplanned pregnancy. She kept me. But I wish she had not let my stepfather adopt me.
