Do you think that this is ethical or right?

Subject: Do you thing you can find someone for us that is thinking of adoption?

Message: My husband and I would love to adopt a Caucasian baby or up to the age of a 2 year old. We would LOVE this child more then you could ever Imagine! We are completely ready and have been Foster Parent for the past 2 years, but have decided to stop fostering because we can't take the pain associated with losing a child that is with us and then returned to family! It is something that makes my Husband and I cry, not sleep and worry every night about how they are doing and we love them so much, it is like a death when they leave us! We are now on the road to only adopt and give a child a great life!! We are ready for a child and have everything they will need in our home, a baby nursery, and we have our home study ready and a Attorney and so we can do this at anytime. Your child will be loved, have lots of family around and be LOVED with all our heart!!! If you would like to talk to us and you are both 100% sure you what to do adoption, then please e-mail me and I will tell you ANYTHING you would like to know or ask!

Update 2: ETA: Here is my response to this unsolicited email from this woman: I am a mother of loss from 1967. My womb shut down for business a decade ago. Frankly, I would be more inclined to give you the name of a good therapist than that of a pregnant woman.

I am a mother of loss from 1967. My womb shut down for business a decade ago. Frankly, I would be more inclined to give you the name of a good therapist than that of a pregnant woman. Perhaps this is inconceivable to you, too, but there really are a lot of people who consider this kind of solicitation tasteless and unethical. Frankly, your inability to have a baby of your own is not something that I really give a thought to. I am more concerned in seeing to it that desperate women like you do not have a chance to abuse or coerce pregnant women to satisfy yourself and your presumptive desperate need.
Update 3: Birthdad in Hell,
I opted to put their letter on here instead and give you all the opportunity to share that information with them. They are reading or they wouldn't have had my information. Go for it!
