I happened to stumble across this article. As I was reading I had this sense of déjà vu, as I was one of these young girls in 1975 fallen prey to a CPC. Over the years of relinquishment I have come to believe that CPCs exist, as you quoted, to "help themselves to a baby." They didn't care anything about me except as incubator. I'm so glad to see them being exposed for the baby robbers they are. Separation, grief and loss through adoption didn't just damage us moms. It affected our children too. If I could do it all over again, I would've held my baby girl and never let go.
