something i never do, but i did

I was browsing some of my favorite blogs today, and came across one I hadn't seen yet documenting a family's journey to adopt a baby girl. This blog really struck me because I am adopted. Being adopted, you'd think I'd know a thing or two about the process, but I really don't. I never asked my parents that many questions, probably because I don't want to come across as ungrateful or not appreciative of the fantastic life they've given me. Seeing the Congolese Love blog and seeing how expensive adoption is really stuck with me. I won't get started about how I feel about people who want to have children and can't versus people who abuse their ability to have children, but let's just say I immediately felt I wanted to help these people get the child they deserve. They are hosting an iPad 2 giveaway to raise funds for the adoption. Go on over and show your support, I certainly did!
