Adoption Controversy: A Friendship Torn Apart 😔

In a whirlwind of emotions, a couple who had already adopted their niece, Katie, decided to adopt another child, Henry. Henry was initially the adoption choice of Jill, the sister of their friend. However, Henry rejected Jill's adoption, leading the couple to adopt him instead. When the news broke out on social media, Jill and their friends were shocked, accusing the couple of 'stealing' Jill's would-be son. This led to a dramatic fallout, with friends calling the couple 'greedy' and some even joking about them 'stealing' other people's kids. The couple, however, stands by their decision, believing they made the right choice for Henry. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️
