It’s the white lies, the prevarication, the embroidery, the arrogance and contempt—Mrs.Kelsey’s attitude towards the family medical question–that is the problem. Her response to the relatively soft medical history concern exemplifies her prediculous contempt and adopteephobic attitude toward us. Our horribly complex and varied adoptive experiences, rooted in class, race, economics, misogny, religion and culture, are too complicated and unpopular to be contained in her ego-driven babybox narrative. They and we best be marginalized and avoided.
In a recent TikTok, Monica Kelsey, founder and CEO of Safe Haven Baby Boxes continued her assault on adopted people and adoptee rights… This time around Mrs. Kelsey really jammed it with a head butt into her screen to get her point across that adoptees “with issues” aren’t welcome at her table.
Class Bastard—the Adopted—to the minds of the baby box tycoonery poses some kind of existential threat to their evangelical stampede through America to normalize baby-abandonment-by-box-in-the-wall.
