Chapter five is called New Beginnings and starts with a movie quote:

"Fortune smiles at some and laughs at others."

Yeah, we get it, you think your autistic kid is some kind of unfair punishment. Move on, #HellMother.
Hey, instead of telling couples who want to adopt to never give up on getting an infant, you could've, oh I dunno, reminded them that hundreds of perfectly wonderful kids in the system could really use a good home.

But of course that wouldn't be perfect enough.

"His head circumference, balanced features, dark hair and ruby lips are perfection."

Look, I get it #HellMother, at the time you were practically ODing on positive hormones, but there is still something icky about describing a baby this way.
Well, at least that chapter was mercifully short. But the glorifying of perfect infants is so very telling. People have unreasonable expectations about what children should be and #HellMother is no exception.
