Seattle Times letters to the editor

Morning-after pill for teenagers

Adoption is also an option

I really appreciated the letter by Anna Hiatt [“Consider adoption as an alternative,” Northwest Voices, May 7].

One of the biggest blessings of our lives was to adopt a child many years ago, when my husband and I decided we did not want our biological son to grow up as an only child.

I agree wholeheartedly with Hiatt’s opinion. As someone who has been a nurse most of my life, more than two decades of which were spent in childbirth or maternity, I am convinced that life begins at conception and am opposed to abortion.

Adoption may not be the option for everyone, but it has been a marvelous option for our family.
