I didn't expect the parallels that I saw tonight between The Crown's Aberfan episode and adoption. But they were there.. and they were deep.
We held a yard sale on a Sunday. That's a strange thing here in the South. The weather made us adjust. That's a great parallel with adoption. It's all about adjusting.
Fast, speedy, quick: those are not words that describe the adoption process. It's a decidedly slow process. You can sum it by saying: adoption is waiting.
Underneath the swirls of fondant on a 3-D cake nothing is as it seems. So too with adoption. Beneath the surface is layers of nuance and imperfection.
When you’re thinking about adopting, you Google it. All the websites will bring instant intimidation. That's ok, adoption is intimidating.
