A Real American Girl

As the mom of a little boy, I miss out on the whole doll experience.

However, check out this sweet story of an adopted little girl, her family, and — yes — her doll!

    Awe. I hope one day you have a little baby girl, Bristol! And I hope she’s just like you – beautiful and sweet.

    My wife and I have considered adopting or bring in a foster child we do have children. Being in our sixties we have thought would it be fair to a child not being able to live a full life with their parents, but again we just may bring in a foster child to love!

    I gotta say that I think one of the great tragedies in this country has been the real lack of transracial adoptions in our society, and of adoptions in general. For the greatest, most prosperous country on Earth to even HAVE orphanages and children without families is a stain on all of us. This country should be THE place for families -REAL, traditional families, that are always willing – and encouraged by the State – to open their homes to children who need families. Orphanages should be practically empty in America. Social service agencies should be more family-oriented; placing children in homes at a constant rate. The legal system should be restructured to promote and encourage adoption. Citizens should unite against ANY and ALL forces that stand between a child and a home – for whatever reason … period. Churches should be leading the way on this … ESPECIALLY for transracial adoptions!
