Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone, but still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, they didn’t grow under my heart, but in it.
All adoptions are special; all parents who adopt have a special jewel in their heavenly crown. Adoption is the most wonderful thing in the world. Nowadays it seems that Hollywood has caught the adoption bug too. Is it because it is the “hip” thing to do? Perhaps they want to protect their figure but still have children? There is also the possibility that they see a need and have the means to fill it so they are. So long as the children are well loved and cared for no one should judge their motive behind the move.
While all adoptions are special and deserve to be adulated I must admit that when I hear of someone adopting from our own country it strikes a very special chord within my heart. Please do not think that any adoption is seen as anything less than wonderful. However, so many travel outside of the United States to help children when our own country is filled with children in need of forever homes. There are hundreds of children just in the state of Alabama in need of a family to be their own. Today People magazine announced that Sandra Bullock has adopted a baby out of New Orleans. We say YOU GO SANDRA!! Now if the other stars would follow suit. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we found homes for all of our children and then star taking care of the rest of the world?
Happy Mother’s Day to all Mothers out there whether biological, adopted, or just the only person that would step up to the plate. You are all heroes so be proud!
