Uuuh! Love! 💔 💔
"Adoptive parents don’t purchase children. They simply pay legal fees and agency fees. Just like biological parents pay hospital and doctor bills. Don’t turn the child into nothing more than a commodity."
People are truly astonishing. I know a couple who spent a LOT of time and a LOT of money fighting to be a child's parents. I know this because they are close friends and we talked about the process a LOT, not because their was a price tag on the child's ear.
They also blow the 'you'll get pregnant as soon as you adopt' theory out of the water, not only because they did, but because they had many times before the decision to adopt as well. That's not always the incentive for adoption.
Neither is a bargain price-- so don't ask such insensitive and insignificant questions.
Is anyone an adoptive parent, or an adopted child? Have you ever thought about it?
My husband was adopted as a newborn and, I am more than convinced, welcomed into a better life than would have otherwise been provided fro him.
Also, we have friends who adopted a child in need of a home, despite already having many (biological) children. They just knew she needed them.
What's your story? Your inspiration?
I love this kind of story. I'm glad they have each other.
What's the best thing to do when you're already feeling overwhelmed with your daily responsibilities? Add a puppy to the mix! :)
This is our new puppy Penley-- a rescued Boxer mix ♥
We put in an application for a dog we met last weekend only to find out that he is already set to go to someone else's home this weekend. That's ok, this is an idea that is new to us; we're just getting started with this pet search. But it's so disappointing and disheartening! I know there's no real comparison, but I can't imagine how people do this with a baby!
I knew she was adopting a little girl, but I didn't know she had a son on the way as well! Wow, congrats to their quickly-growing family!
Congrats to Charlize Theron
