But what's really notable about the post is this:
Santa’s adoption story is not uncommon in the world of international adoption. A baby abandoned at birth, potentially destined for an unhappy life, until fate steps in and delivers the baby into the warm and loving arms of a family. Santa grows up tall and red headed in a house of elves, where his differences are celebrated. It sounds a bit like Elle or Bunny’s adoption story.Won the "adoption lottery?!" Lucky they were adopted, unlike so many children around the world who won't get adopted? Nothing like enforced gratitude and survivor's guilt, all in one pretty Christmas pudding . . . .
My family has always told Elle and Bunny they won the adoption lottery the day they were adopted. I’m not sure the girls would entirely agree, especially when they have been naughty, but they were one of the lucky ones. So many children around the world don’t get adopted.
What would you do if your family told your adopted children that they had won the adoption lottery?
