Ugh, why do people always make the comment that they don't understand why people adopt from other countries when there SO MANY kids here (meaning in the US) to adopt? Why does it really matter where kids are from as long as they are loved? Don't kids from all over the world deserve families? Is the US somehow superior and I failed to get that memo?

OK, rant over. Just wondering...

Oh, and edited to add: Most of the time the people who make the above comment have never adopted AT ALL, let alone from the US. UGH!

OK, seriously, I'm done now. I feel better.

I completely agree with you. I have no issue with people adopting from other countries. I really doubt anyone who has adopted at all would have an issue with it. People are just so dumb!!

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

I agree - it's crazy! I've people tell me that about donating money to the starving kids overseas too - as if they don't deserve it as much as the US children! It's wacky

Thanks for backing me up on this one! I don't know why it bothers me sometimes, I should be used to dumb comments by now, but every now and then stuff like that just sets me off.
