“Parents Sue Lawyers Over Unhealthy Adopted Baby”

A couple says the infant they adopted from an Indiana birthmother in 2006 displays severe neurological deficits. They’re suing their lawyers for $5 million, saying more should have been done to warn them. [Gothamist, New York Post]


  • Looks like that “failure to warn” concept that attorneys keep pushing is now coming back to bite them in the ass.

  • Jeeze! Do babies now come with warranties? How about instruction manuals? I feel I reproduced too soon…

  • As an adoptive mother, stories like this really wrench my gut. You sign up to be a parent, you sign up for the good, bad, ugly, horrifying, amazing, sickness, health, *whatever,* however you signed up to be a parent, adoption or biology.
