All of you know that my husband and I have hearts for adoption. We are advocates for domestic adoption, as that is where our hearts called us. (It's not to say that there is anything wrong with international adoption. It was just not the path for us.)
Sandra Bullock is adopting a domestic baby from New Orleans!
I AM JUMPING FOR JOY INSIDE!
Why is her adoption such a big deal to me? It is because celebrities have pull. When they do something like helping storm victims, calling attention to mistreatment, and adopting babies, people stand up and listen. Wow! How this will bring to light all of the children in our very own country-- in our own backyards-- that are equally as homeless as other children in other countries. These children have unfortunately been the victims of abuse, they have been hungry, they have seen things in life that they shouldn't have. That is here. That is in America.
I am so thrilled that we now have a celebrity face of domestic adoption. She has been so quiet about it. Instead of thrusting this child into the limelight, she went about it in stealth mode.
He is gorgeous. He is so lucky.

Smiles in my day:
- Despite the horrible cramps that woke me at 2:30 AM, I slept through the night. The previous night, I had not.
- The rain stopped, so K- and I were able to walk to school this morning.
Have a great day!
