Turns out, my biggest fear regarding international adoption (namely, that a child will be “placed for adoption” without his/her parents’ consent) isn’t just a problem in parts of the world where running water, electricity, and knowing where your next meal is going to come from are luxuries. I saw this tonight, and I’m distraught for all parties involved.
Also, Hubby and I watched this documentary, and now I’m terrified to ever have a teenage daughter. Or any teenager. Or kids in general.
My stomach hurts.
