All the More Reason to Push Adoption Down People Throats

There was a news story on Fox News about a baby who survived "falling" through a toilet on an Indian train onto the tracks. The family stated that the mother became unconscious and the baby fell through the squat toilet. The family initiated the search for the little girl so it seems it probably was an accident. How many times have we heard in our country about girls (and women) who abandon their newborns? Of course it happens in other countries, especially in cultures were women are looked down upon.
Read the story here.
The process is renewed in my mind. Maybe I should take the "gloves off" when discussing adoption? Who the heck cares if I'm too pushy. If the statements I make help someone make the choice to adopt, then it is worth insulting all the others. It goes back to the article Pam posted here about how Christians are basically coping out and not helping to take care of the orphans hence the fostercare system is so huge. I wish everyone could see my cause through my eyes. Oh well. I wouldn't have anything to rant and rave about then I guess.
Well, I'll get back to my CVS shopping now (hope I don't trip getting off my platform.)

Our Party

A Birthday Party

I'm just doing a quick post. My friend took most of the pictures of the party for me and they went home. I'll probably do a more extensive post and put it on Ananya's blog. Today we are off to meet our new therapist and have our first session with her. I'm excited because Ananya bonded well with her the first time we met. I'll post more when we get home.
Oh yeah. We had a very special guest. Jansen came to visit us. (Pam, he looks so much like Micah that it is just plain scary.)

Our Photo Shoot for a Soon-To-Be Birthday Girl

These are a few of the good pictures I got today trying to take Ananya's birthday pictures. I'll have to try again another day. I took video of it. She was not feeling it. I'll try again later. For now we are off to take a nap.
Sorry the whole video is sideways, but that's how my life is alot of the time. LOL!
