Talking about adoption, birthparents, abandonment, race, and China with my kids. That's not all we talk about -- but reading this blog, you'll think it's all we do!!!!!

The Rescue Meme
Yes, I know it's talking about adopting an animal. I'm all for that. And I also don't care when adoption is used to talk about things that are not like adoption -- highways, stars, zoo animals, liberals . . . . But a friend sent the photo to me, and it reminded me of how much I dislike the rescue meme, which I've written about before.
I thought you might like to watch this trailer for a new documentary about saving orphans, believe it or not, called Rescued:
Oh, and the trailer is quite frank about one thing -- the rescue isn't just saving a life, it's "collecting lost little ones" to save their souls. What else could adoption be about, huh?
