This probably sounds like the understatement of the year, but things tend to get complicated when it comes to adoption.
And this story from the “Am I the A**hole?” page on Reddit is a real whopper.
This person has some regrets about the way she treated her sister about the kids she gave up for adoption and now they wanted to know if they acted like a jerk.
Take a look at what happened.
AITA for telling my sister that the adoptive parents have a point for no longer contacting her?
“My sister gave birth to her twins boy and girl in June of 2020.
She had been living with me before then after being evicted. I have three kids and work full time and I told her if she was going to keep her babies she was going to have to find other living spaces. I have a 2 bedroom and it’s cramped already. I’m not sacrificing my room to share with her and 2 newborns. She said okay.
When she was six months pregnant she said she was going to give her baby up for adoption and contacted this top adoption agency. They sent her a pamphlet of potential parents.
I was shocked since she never brought up giving them up for adoptions. I felt guilty and told her if she got a job and paid me 400$ a month maybe we could find a 3 bedroom. She said she doesn’t want to be a mom and she’s made up her mind.
She ended up choosing a very wealthy couple for her baby. They both made six figures and had a very clean squeaky look to them. I told her they looked stuck up and she said that she wanted her twins to live an upperclass lifestyle. The agency and couple flew her out to their city in a 5 star hotel for the rest of her pregnancy.
It was supposed to be an open adoption and when my sister came back they did send pictures once a month by mail. When the twins were about six months all of a sudden they ghosted my sister, deleted all their social media handles to probably create new ones, and even moved. My sister had a breakdown and I was equally shocked.
The agency brushed her off and said the parents have the right to do whatever they want and told her not to call again unless she was pregnant. For weeks I pitied my sister until she got d**nk and told me something.
She said that she texted the adoptive mom that she needed 2k because she wants to go back to school or something and the mom told her she doesn’t feel comfortable with my sister messaging her asking for money and my sister told her that they’re beyond rich and 2k is what they spend in a day so they’re not hurting and that’s when they ghosted her.
That changed things for me and I told my sister that she shouldn’t have done that and that maybe they had a point. She started crying and is still giving me the cold shoulder.
Now let’s check out what Reddit users said about this story
This reader said that the sister just sounds flat-out greedy.
Another person said that pretty much nobody would want to have anything to do with this woman because of how she behaves.
Another individual said that if they did give her money, you know that she would keep asking for more…I think they’re right.
And finally, this person recommended putting some distance between them and the sister.
I think I agree…
