This is not a topic I talk much about, mainly because it's not a topic I know much about. This particular video only came to my attention because it happens to include my soon-to-be-nephew. What the video mainly does is try to drive home just how little the kids involved in international adoptions understand about adoption, Americans, and what happens when/if they get adopted - just how much of a culture shock it really is for them.
It will also, very probably, make you want to adopt one of these kids.
Watch it anyway.
Congratulations! I hope your nephew comes home soon.ReplyDelete
My brother and his wife head out on Friday, but it'll probably be a while - at least a month after they get back - before we meet the new nephew. They're planning to keep him to themselves for a while, basically to let him get comfortable with them before he has to cope with even more new family, and this video goes a long way towards explaining why that's likely to be necessary.ReplyDelete
