How can people even ask this question? I was reading on another blog today about this topic and the person whom wrote that blog agreed with me - how can someone even suggest this, especially when, if you think about it, when, after biological children are born - you still have to pay hospital bills.
The fact is - you spend money on kids, whether its by adoption or for their basic care. Does this mean you are buying them? No. It means you care. It means you want them to have a good life. It means you want to provide for them everything you can. It means you love them.
And to those adopting disabled children who get told, "you know she will be with you her whole life," if the child you are adopting has significant special needs. My answer to that would be, "I would hope so. My kids will always be my kids my whole life. What a blessing that will be."
Anyway, those are just a few little things I thought I'd mention this morning. Mara is still needing her home. The Orphan Dolls are still ready to teach the world. Please continue to pray that Ruslana's family can adopt her. My baby Nephew is growing bigger every day. My friend's miracle baby is a little girl! And the family I mentioned in the post below made it by. But they are still struggling badly. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers for them.
Oh! And I might have a new job! We shall see. Prayers for all of you bringing home kiddos, by birth or adoption!
