Debunking preconceived notions about adoption
Filed under: Adoption
For all of us who have either adopted or are planning to adopt, this piece does a good job of debunking some of the preconceived (i.e., inaccurate) notions that people may have about the concept of adopting a child or about the process.
While I have some issues about the cost of adoption--true, rich people are not the only people that can adopt, but it is VERY expensive, and both domestic and international agencies are not doing this SOLELY for the good of their hearts. Let's be real--they're in business and they'd like to make a profit, or else they wouldn't be doing it in the first place.
Nevertheless, this column serves as a good template from which to gain better understanding of what adoption is all about.
