Why wouldn’t you tell her son. I would think it would make him feel good to know his mother did not just walk away from him. Sounds like the adoptive parents are a little in secure. She deserves to know her son.

I think she should be able to see her son. She did not give him up willingly and for her family to was horrible. Besides how wonderful would it be for him too know that his mom did not give him up or abandon him??

I work in the adoption field and am an adoptive parent. I can say that someday this boy will find out who his birth mother is and will be really angry with his adoptive parents for lying to him all his life! Adoptive kids have a need and right to know who they are and their history! Its a part of who they are. There is no doubt that they think they are protecting him, but there not! They are very misguided and need to discuss with professionals who work with adoptive kids!

I’m surprised that her son was given up for adoption at all. If anything happened to my kids, I would hold onto my grandchild for dear life.

Her family thought she left. They didn’t believe she was kidnapped. That said I totally agree! If my child was gone in any way (even if of their own free will) I would NEVER in a million years give away their child my grandchild. But then everything I’ve heard of her family seems like they weren’t that great to her in the first place. So sad. I hope some day she can see her son again.

That is probably why she will not have anything to do with them.

How very sad that the child’s adoptive parents would keep a child from one of his most intimate relationships – and prevent a mother from reuniting with her son. Hopefully her son will have access to his birth certificate one day and know the truth. On that day, his adoptive parents will regret not telling him. No person has the right to deny another the knowledge of their own biology.

We only know one side of the story, and there are at least two others here that aren’t being told, and most likely none of our business. No, this isn’t illegal, as Michelle went missing and responsibility of custody of her son fell on her parents. For whatever reasons, they felt that letting another family adopt him was the best thing to do. And, we don’t know whats going on in the lives of his new family, or with him personally. It may be in his best interest that he not know he truth right now. I hope one day he does ask those questions, or figures out the answers on his own, and that he can be reunited. But don’t place judgment on Ms. Knight’s parents or her son’s adoptive family. Instead, simply pray for them.

Pray for them? They deliberately kept/are keeping a child from his mother…..who through no fault of her own no longer has access to her child? Sure I will pray……that the earth opens up and this mother gains access to her offspring……

I think it’s screwed up the boy’s adoptive parents want her identity kept a secret from him. She should sue for visitation. She didn’t give him up. He has a right to know his mother and know she never abandoned him. Selfish, entitled adopters and nothing more. They probably raised him to believe she was dead and were secretly hoping she was so he couldn’t have a relationship with her when he came of age. Michelle is too nice. She deserves a relationship with her son whether his entitled wanna be parents like it or not.

AMEN. Selfish, child-entitled bastards. It’s not like Lily doesn’t have the financial means or lacks stability. She’s proven she’s MORE then capable of earning her keep. It’s so sad to think she doesn’t have Gina or her family in her life, let alone her own family. Lily can’t even have babies of her own anymore. Selfish, selfish people.
