International adoption, a miracle?
I hate this article on international adoption published in the Washington Post.
Michael Gerson isn’t at fault by talking about the ‘miracle of his family’. I’m certain he wrote out of true emotion. But his article serves to perpetuate the myth that an adoptive family should ‘feel’ a certain way. What about new adoptive parents who may not yet feel the full love that will grow over time? If I had read his article three years ago, it would have depressed the hell out of me.
