" Oh, you're so lucky you have the funds to adopt. My husband and I would do it in a SECOND if we only had the money.."
I can't tell you how many people have written similar words in the past few years. The number is astronomical. If you're a facebook friend, just take a look back on my wall, and anytime I promoted adoption..you'll see a nice long list of 'poor me' responses from people that WANT to adopt but financially can't afford it. You know what I say to this?
yes, bullcrap. I know its not a nice word and this is a G-rated blog and everything, but...BULLCRAP. i am so tired of hearing this excuse I could just scream. Tell it like it is, people..call a spade a spade: its not the money but the fear of the unknown or the concern of disrupting your life or the worry that you won't be a good mother or, or or. but for God's sake, stop using money as an excuse, because it is the LAMEST excuse of all.
