This week I had an encounter with adoption, up close and personal. I always thought it was about the chance to give someone a perfect life. Why? I have no idea because I know there is no such thing.
I figured out very quickly that it’s a much simpler concept. It’s merely the chance of giving someone a better life. A better shot at being an independent individual, or more of a shot than they’d have in an orphanage in a third world country.
People spend a lot of time worrying about culture and displacement. But I say rather focus on being loved, having someone to love, a decent education, a loving shove up the stepladder of life.
Prince Harry has been in the news again with his Lesotho deeds, and no matter how much of a hair-raiser he is, to have a son with a heart that big, must make his papa proud.
I take my hat off, I raise my glass, I give a shout-out to those who’ve adopted. Thank you for your stellar contribution in making this world a better place.
