I’m not surprised.  I can’t remember ever running into a more despicable gang of adoptahugs than the Cs and their entourage of baby grabbing lawyers,  adoption agents,professional media whores,PR hacks, racists, haters, religious nuts, and crybabies. They make the DeBoers look sane.

The Demons of Adoption Award is a response to the annual Angels in Adoption Award sponsored by the Congressional Coalition for Adoption Institute (CCAI).  Ironically,  in 2010, Godwin and his wife Laura, the head of Nightlight Christian, received an Angels of Adoption. Award.  They were nominated by former Senator Jim DeMint (SC-R), now president of the conservative Coors-family founded Heritage Foundation and long-time friend of Bill Pierce, founding president of the National Council for Adoption.  A few years ago, a writer for the Heritage suggested that women be allowed by law to sell their parental rights.

Announcing the latest Demon, Pound Pups Niels and Kerry write: :

Knowingly starting an adoption procedure that can reasonably be expected to be contested, is immoral. Adoption, when practiced, should increase a child’s stability in life, not lower it. Raymond Godwin and his wife  [director of Nightlight Christian]Laura knowingly created a situation that was potentially disruptive, and ended up actually being disruptive for two children. For that, they deserve to be recognized as Demons of Adoption.

down in flamesOriginally Angels in Adoption  may have had some merit. In fact, some subversive BNers got their wings for their actual work in OBC access and bastard work, but those days are pretty dead and gone. Today Angels of Adoption is not much more than a horn-blowing, back patting self-indulgence  for and by  an industry going down in the flames of its own ignition.

In their announcement, Neils and Kerry point out some of the public embarrassments CCAI has had to bear in the last few years due to  its lack of scruity of nominees sent their way by politicians.  Serial molester Jerry Sandusky, Daimen and Allonna Stovall,  (later charged with beating their adoptee with belts), Faith Allen (Masha Allen’s re-homing tormentor and all around nutjob, and predatory Utah adoption lawyer Larry Jenkins have all received awards. (Read the announcement for the juicy details).  One of the humorous angles on the angels is that Bill Pierce ridiculed the Angels of Adoption Awards, calling the award and dinner “ointy toity.”

Thank you Pound Pup for another great election. It would be great if you didn’t have to throw these things, but I’m afraid they’ll continue for a long time.

What horror awaits us next?
