With all due respect, how do you think they will feel if they grow up without a family to love them? I never post the Chinese names or exact dob or provinces of these precious children and I always have permission to post their pics, and I would love to think that they will one day all find forever families. I also support organizations to help families in
This is something that I have definitely struggled with and would love to get your feelings. I get her point and I get the whole angry adoptee thing. I would be angry too, if I had been adopted by terrible parents but bio kids are born to terrible parents all the time! Sigh!
I wholeheartedly agree that the best case scenario is for good families (and I don't mean rich families) to stay together, but what about those kids who are very real and are very much without a family? Are they better off in an orphanage in their birth country within their culture or are they better off within the arms of a loving family outside of their birth country and culture? I know what I think.
TM over at Our Little Tongginator has a wonderful Sunday Linkage and this week, she linked to a really great post entitled, I Will not Apologize for Adopting, about this very subject. Go check it out.
So, please, let me know what you think. I know that posting all this personal info about these kids is a double edged sword, but it breaks my heart every time I think about these kids who wait and who may never know the love of a family. All the kids I advocate for are either SN's little ones or are older kids who are in danger of aging out - to a life of what???
I do have VERY mixed emotions about posting this info, but how can I turn my back on these kids? I never, ever want to do anything to hurt any one of these beautiful kids.
So, I am asking your opinions - honest opinions. If you think that these advocacy posts are a bad thing, let me know, just please realize that I have only the best of intentions!!!
