Just got done watching a story on channel 7 news about a Costa Mesa couple that has been in the adoption process for a Haitian toddler for many months. Well, they finally received their child and seem to be very happy. I too am happy for them and wish them years of happiness.
I just don't understand why people adopt children from foreign countries when there are thousands of children living here in America that are living in foster care or are otherwise available for adoption.
I think it's great that people are willing to open their houses and lives to a complete stranger and accept them as their own, but don't understand why they feel the need to go to foreign countries to do so.
Brad Pitt and his crazy wife, along with Madonna, are perhaps the largest celebrity personalities involved in this practice, I just wish they would put that same effort into the country that has given so much to their lives.
Off the soapbox, carry-on..
