Dear Mama Tao:
I have such a sad tale to relate. I was waiting at the bus stop, contemplating how lucky I am to be a birthing goddess and wondering how soon I could TTC after my HBA5C last month, when a "woman" seated on the bench next to me pulled out a bottle and began to Formula Feed her poor infant (it wasn't even a glass bottle--it was PLASTIC! I mean, how can one person be so UNEDUCATED??) Naturally, I fled the area in hysterical tears, having been Proximity Raped. Luckily, I had sewn a healing sage incense stick into the hem of my organic cotton baby sling for just this kind of emergency, and I instantly smudged DD. But I seek a deeper cleansing ritual to try to rid my baby of toxins. I need not tell you how important it is to create a protective aura around my rainbow child--she's the only one I've bonded with since she was my only normal birth. ((((((((((((((Mama Honesty)))))))))))))))) I've already scheduled appointments with my holistic healer and my chiropractor, but I'm desperate for suggestions before then. Oh, Mama Tao, can you help me????

Normally during a situation like this I would recommend getting pregnant as soon as possible. Considering that this child did not belong to you, I think the only way for you to ease your soul ache is to adopt this poor infant and nurse it with your own sweet milk.
One of the easiest ways to adopt a baby that is not for sale is to call Social Services. Child Protective Workers are notorious for taking children who don't have psychological issues because children who are from genuinely abusive homes are harder to adopt out.
One little erroneous call from you to CPS should get the job done and then that poor baby will be all yours to nurse and bond with. If they are going to formula feed, they should not have had kids in the first place. They don't deserve them!
