A woman who adopted from china put up a series of pics showing how some of you really sound to us. We adopted six and the things people say in front of and to the kids since they were little is incredible.  I can identify with  some of it even though our kids are from the US we adopted all diff races.

I saw this on facebook two days ago It was pretty powerful. I have witnessed people acting like this over adopted childrenn. and remember thinking at the time how incredibly rude that person was.

People are rude. I would never ask such questions. All kids need a loving home.

imagine us in the store with four caucasion two mixed and two african American little ones. We walk up to Santa at the mall I mention they are all brothers and sisters so Santa knows and he starts asking rude questions in front of them. He is Santa to them. Like are they really brothers and sisters are they adopted or just foster ect.   People would stop us in the mall complete strangers and ask are they all yours?

I can't believe someone would say those things to a child. It says far more about them then it does about whoever they are saying it to.

I'm against international adoption. Leave babies in their own country!!!!! Why adopt overseas, and not from our own country? There are lots of babies/kids in America who need a living home and family.

Who gives a flying fuck what passport a human being holds? A child in America isn't somehow more deserving of a home than a child in Ethiopia if that's where a parent would like to adopt.
