Would that have mattered? Babies are naturally "aborted" all the time. The body will sometimes just know that it's not in a position to carry a baby and terminate it's own pregnancy. This is no more of a tragedy than when someone uses their head to not put another child in the child-care system. Your case was good, but far more children will never be adopted. I could just as easily produce plenty of stories of abuse and neglect. This is especially common when a young mother gives up on their child or has the child removed for it's safety in a few years. It's much less common to be adopted as a young child than as a baby.
