If you care to look at some of the comments made after the CBC article, this only highlights some of the attitudes that adoptive parents have to endure. Yes, we’re all entitled to our opinions, but I would love it if people who have actually experienced adoption through the foster care system or otherwise, share their opinion, rather than people who have no clue.
I’m struggling so hard to make it through this waiting process, maintain positivity and optimism and endurance in the face of daunting challenges. This is a given if you choose the path of overseas adoption. I just had the “misfortune” to have to wait longer than a week. Or a year.
Just adopt, my ass.
