I know that look. I know her. I believe her.
Did you know that:
- Approximately 2.6 percent of American adults−6.1 million people−live with bipolar disorder
- Mood disorders such as depression are the third most common cause of hospitalization in the U.S. for both youth and adults ages 18 to 44
- About 9.2 million adults have co-occurring mental health and addiction disorders
- Although military members comprise less than 1 percent of the U.S. population, veterans represent 20 percent of suicides nationally. Each day, about 18 veterans die from suicide (x)
Mental illnesses are still highly stigmatized. Whether you chose to share your story or just offer to listen and help another, spread the word. We are people too and we deserve to be heard.

If you don’t think that’s awesome I don’t understand you :D
“If you were Emma, would you give Henry up for his best chance at life or would you keep him and subject him to a life of poverty, which was how she’d been living before she found a job as a bails bondsman and was able to afford a small apartment? Clearly the responsible thing to do would be the former. It would be just selfish to keep him if all you had was your car and no money, house, or job. Who the fuck would want to raise a baby in a fucking car?”
Personally, my argument was never whether or not she made the right choice giving him up. My argument is how wrong (literally illegal) it is that she just decided she had the right to take him back. That is just not how it works.
See, I totally agree with the legality of it, but honestly, even after meeting Regina for the first time, it was never Emma’s intention to take him back. Mary Margret was the first one to mention the idea, after the whole frame-job thing, and still Emma was hesitant.
Then the curse broke, and Regina was revealed as the Evil Queen, what person in their right mind would just trust that someone who rightfully earned the title of Evil would act in Henry’s best interests upon suddenly finding herself backed into a corner. Now we, as the audience, know that Regina’s only priority is Henry, that she’d rather face execution than harm him, but Emma didn’t know that. She had not yet learned anything about Regina’s past, except for her darkest hour, of which Emma had no reason to question. It was only then that Emma took him back, and only just long enough to be sure Regina was capable of being the mother she was to him prior to the curse breaking, which, if you remember, she wasn’t capable of for the few weeks following the curse, nor when her mother was back in control of her.
But once she recovered from everything, she snapped right back into the great mother she was prior to Emma’s arrival in Storybrooke. And now, Emma honestly wants Henry and Regina’s relationship to mend; she’s under no delusion that she is somehow a more legitimate mother than Regina, and she has no intention of reclaiming her biological child from her.
Just try to see it from both Regina AND Emma’s point-of-view and tell me their actions were unwarranted when you consider they both thought of the other as an incarnation of evil.
