I received this notice yesterday. It’s a solicitation for pregnant women who would like to have MTV’s "True Life" follow your story as you decide to place your child for adoption. The flyer says:
Are you pregnant and planning to make your child available for adoption? Then MTV would like to hear from you.
MTV’s award-winning documentary series, "True Life," is producing a new episode about young women who are making adoption plans for their soon-to-be-born children. We’re looking for expectant mothers who would like to share their stories with young people across the country.
Our goal — as with all episodes of "True Life" — is to help MTV’s young audience understand why so many young women make the choice to place their babies for adoption, and to help de-stigmatize this choice. We will treat the young women who participate in this documentary with respect, dignity and empathy.
I wonder if they’ve done a show about the various experiences of adoptees who may or may not have searched for their birth parents, or to show the range of experiences from the adoptee’s POV.
