Are you kidding? Cedar City is not nearly as nice as you are trying to make it sound.

Default not nearly as nice?

What do you mean, you dont think its nice in Cedar City? I guess I have a different appreciation of whats nice, I was raised in Los Angeles, California, So I guess when there are no drive bys, or reports of my grandmother getting mugged at the grocery store,and 4-5 helicopters circling my neigborhood looking for fugatives all night long, Cedar seems like Utopia to me. Call me crazy If you have lived in this state all your life then you are tuely blessed to have not had to see violence growing up, I really want that for my children.
What are your feelings on Cedar City?

Well, while Cedar has a lot going for it (scenery, Shakespearean Festival, beatiful canyon nearby, close to the Nat'l Parks, etc.), it isn't paradise. The winter's are cold (and some of the people are, too), and it's windy more often than not (I'm not talking breeze here); it's lacking in the civic pride that St. Geo has (how many old pioneer homes have been torn down--just to be replaced by a little strip-mall or tacky newer houses---and I won't even mention the gracious old El Escalante Hotel); plus how many homes and yards are uncared for? And have they gotten better at weed abatement? In case you doubt me, I was born and raised in the town (Sorry, about that, Rhonda; glad you like it)

Default Cedar City

Cedar City is nice, but not as nice if you are not Mormon. My daughter was born and adopted there and we had a lot of hassle by the hospital staff because the LDS church does not want a child adopted out of the LDS church. The doctor actually tried to infludence the birthmother not to place.

Assuming the baby was put up for adoption through LDS social services, then yes. That is their right given it is a private non-profit organization sponsored by the LDS Church. Below are the criteria

"Basic requirements for an infant adoption include a couple being (1) married at least two years, (2) sealed to each other in the temple and maintain current recommends, (3) able to clear criminal background and child abuse registry checks required by government regulations, (4) and able to financially provide for a child, including insurance coverage once the child is placed in the couple's home. Couples should also hold a current temple recommend and a positive recommendation from their Bishop"

Now lets get the topic back on track.

It was not through LDSFS. LDSFS will gladly take birthmothers from any religion (no brainer) but will only place babies with LDS couples. This was a private adoption, private placement and there was no reason for them to get involved. The birthmother was not even LDS either. They felt it was their duty for it to go with a LDS couple or not be placed at all.

"They" were most of the hospital staff in the maternity ward working during those 5 days she was in the hospital, as well as the doctor. One nurse was so obvious about her dislike of adoption in general and this baby being placed in a non-LDS home that my Cedar City attorney asked the head of the OB ward to please have her not be allowed to come into that room to provide care. The hospital obliged and she no longer came into the room. The nurses acted as if I didn't exist when they came into the room, and were no very pleasant to the birthmother either. The last day she was in the hospital, the day she would also terminate her parental rights, the doctor confronted me at the OB desk when I arrived that morning. He said he spoke to the birthmother and told her she didn't have to place (which we all knew anyway). She was in tears when I got to her room and said he upset her. I couldn't get out of Cedar City fast enough!
