This weekend I read a book that had tips about how to bond with your baby, how to help calm him, how to help him sleep, etc...
It seemed like a pretty good book until I got to the "special circumstances" section about fostering and adopting kids. It was a very short section. And unfortunately, this short section contained some advice for adoptive parents. In essence it was: You may get pregnant after adopting. We don't know why it happens, but people that adopt often get pregnant afterwards.
Come on lady, give me a break. I thought you were some scholar or renowned baby expert. What were you thinking when you put this paragraph in here?
Needless to say, the book lost a bit of credibility with me. I will keep her tips in mid, but she obviously doesn't know everything if she had to fall back on the age old, "adopt and then you will get pregnant" myth. And maybe that's good that I know she is human and fallible. I don't need to take everything "the expert" said and think that's the way things are supposed to be.
