About Me:
I am a 20 year old Atheist who just recently moved from Kansas City Missouri to Boston Massachusetts. I found out I was pregnant and I wanted to let my aunt and uncle adopt the baby. I am living with them now and I am having a huge issue with allowing them to adopt, they are theists, very very religious. I am having a hard time with this.
Age
19-24
Why are you here?
I am here to be a part of a group. Like minded, but free thinking individuals. I am living with crazy bible thumpers at the moment and I need to get away from the constant bible verse quoting I hear every day.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
I was never really religious. Even at a young age I knew that God didn't exist, which boggles me that grown adults believe in such fairy tales.

Contemplation

Posted on December 24, 2009 at 8:00am 11 Comments

I had a four hour long conversation with my aunt this evening. She was explaining to me in great detail: her faith, her political ideas, how she raises her children, so on and so forth. Myself being a very liberal atheist, I mostly stood there, trying not to have a disgusted look on my face, and smiled and nodded. It was very hard for me not to tell her that everything she believes in is childish and wrong. After the very one sided conversation, I locked myself in my room and watched… Continue

Hi Alexandra. My name is Graham. I saw your post about having someone religious raise your child.

My son will be 9 years old this year. We gave him up for adoption when he was 3 days old. I was 17 then and his biological mother and I knew we couldn't give him the life he deserved. A teacher at our old high school adopted him. I didn't know it at the time, but the family is very religious. My son has been raised in a christian family. Sometimes it kind of bothers me; knowing that he's been indoctrinated into the religion. But I am hopeful that he will someday find free thought and rationality the way I did. That said, when I have seen him these past many years, he always looked happy and I know the adoptive parents are very nice people.

Since you not only know the possible adoptive parents, but they are family, then you may have a great level of interaction with your child. You may be a source of inspiration for free thought in your child's life, as long as your aunt and uncle allow it. Even if they would prefer you avoid directly religious conversation, you could still teach the child how to question thoughts. I'm not sure what level of interaction they would want, but the fact that they are willing to adopt your child is pretty awesome for them.

In the end, of course, this decision is yours. If you choose adoption, then just know that there are many others of us who have done this as well. It is a very hard path. During the first few years, I would almost cry every time I thought of my son. I'm now at a very comfortable place personally with my decision. I am very happy he was adopted and I hope someday he has a very joyous life.
