Editor's Note: Dr. George Tiller, whose Kansas women's clinic frequently took center stage in the U.S. debate over abortion, was shot and killed while serving as an usher at his Wichita church Sunday morning. His death has sparked much conversation about abortion and late-term abortion. On Andrew Sullivan's blog on The Atlantic website, a number of people have weighed in with personal stories on the issue of abortion. Look at this one from a reader.
A reader writes:
We've been on an adoption waiting list with a local agency for over two years now. We don't care about race or background, and we're fine with an open adoption. Our only wish is that our first child be an infant. (We're open to adopting older children later, after we have at least some experience as parents). As our friends seem to crank out kid after kid after kid, we wait. And we wait. While I continue to be staunchly pro-choice, it's not easy - I would give everything for a life that we could hold and know and love and raise as ours.
