We are really happy to be adopting from R****a. We are also REALLY lucky to live in the United States. IF we lived in R****a, I would have given birth to what THEY consider a "defective" child (Hope.) They would have pushed me into putting the baby up for adoption, where her only hope for ever having a family would come from America or possibly Western Europe. That is IF a family can come up with the $30,000+ price tag they put on her. She would live in a crowded poor orphanage until she turned 4-6 years old, when they would take her away from the only home shes ever known (not that it was all that great) and put her in insane asylum/ mental institution. So many of these children are chained to there beds, and are forced to live scared and hopeless until they eventually die. Often they don't make it past the 1st year after being "institutionalized."
I cannot wait to bring this little girl home and give her all the love and laughter that EVERY human being deserves-FOREVER! Im also very grateful for Reece's Rainbow http://reecesrainbow.org/ for helping these children find loving homes. My family is very blessed.
I CANNOT imagine my sweet little girl EVER being treated less than a human. It breaks my heart!!!
