I have to agree with the other ladies. The best way to deal with people who are saying things that are just plain inappropriate is to try to change they way you talk about adoption. I know that for us we were getting lots of people saying, "I can't believe someone could just give their baby away like that..." That one always pissed me off. So I wouldn't correct them or call them out, but when I would talk about adoption and birth parents I would say things like "An expectant mom that is choosing to make an adoption plan". I say things they way I would want them to talk about it, and it works. Adoption for us is by no means a last resort. Like Beth, I feel absolutely blessed to be on this journey and definitely feel like it's exactly where we are meant to be right now.
I hope things get better for you soon! It will take time, but maybe with some gentle nudging things will change soon.
