    Perfect for those who are looking into international adoption

    The book that I have been reading the past few weeks was called, Are Those Kids Yours? American Families with Children Adopted from Other Countries, By Cheri Register. What a great read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in international adoption. It was more of a conversational book than a story, filled with thoughts and emotions about the international adoption process. It also had another great aspect to it, and that was a look into a life as an inter-racial family. I could see how some people who may be uncertain about having kids with a different race than them may be a problem. But reading this actually enhanced my thinking and my desire even more to be an international family. Reading this, I can see that international adoption (and adoption in general) isn't for everyone. It just breaks my heart to hear about how many children around the world need homes and will most likely spend their lives in an orphanage and will be turned out into the streets when they are a teenager to beg for food. Did you know that everyday 38,000 children die around the world, and most of them are homeless or living on the streets? Thats the equivalent of 100 jumbo jet crashes. Everyday. Yet we hear nothing about it. (the same kind of statement reigns true for animal slaughter houses, but this isn't a post about that).

    Well if you are at all interested in someday adopting internationally, this is a great read and oh so informative. It left me with the question of, would you be okay with interracial children that look nothing like you and were born in another country? And my answer is YES. It isn't our blood that makes us who we are, its the choices we make in life and the impact we have on others. And above all its about love. Love knows no color, no race, no religion, and no nationality.
