Feelings

Words hurt.

"I am praying that lil Peaches' never gets home to a selfish baby buyer like YOU!" - I will leave the author unnamed because his/her "name" in unimportant.

I don't care whether or not you agree with international adoption. I don't care whether or not you agree with fundraising adoptions. This is NOT something that needs to be said.

It's unfortunate that some people seem to think that a child is better off left in an orphanage, growing up without love, affection, and attention than to thrive in a family.

You know what though? I don't know you nor do I care to know you. Your opinion of me means absolutely nothing. Just know that my daughter is loved beyond measure, even now, before she gets home.

You try to bully and belittle many adoptive families and a lot of them just ignore you and your hateful words. Your words hurt people, though, and discourage a lot from posting their amazing, wonderful journey.

To all adoptive parents and potential adoptive parents: There are people out there who will try to hurt you through their words. This is not a reflection of anything you are doing wrong. If anything, it's a reflection of what you are doing right. Please do not let these bullies belittle you and discourage you. You are not alone. We are in this together. You are doing what's right. Never forget that.
