Horror-ified

I have a nasty sinus infection, and my child has the beginnings of bronchitis. So sleep is at a real premium at our house. I thought about saving this post for when I wasn't hopped-up on Sudafed and could actually give reasonable voice to my outrage.

I cannot. I will simply trust that all of you who read my words, all of you who have a favorable perspective on adoption, all of you who at least attempt to fathom what it must feel like to be an older child with no family...will be horrified by what you will see if you go here:

Shame on you, Warner Bros. Shame on you.

I don't feel adequate to the task of taking you to task just now. I want to point out how incredibly painful a film premise like this is for all adoptees and orphans in the world. I want to point out how if there were almost any other minority group being singled out in this manner, this film could never have been produced. I want to spew insightful venom at you and I am just. not. well. enough. I want to rail against this atrocity of a movie that may just prevent some children from FINDING FAMILIES, but I can't.

I'm going to trust all of you to do it for me.

I can't believe I even watched that. Truly in bad, bad taste.

Feel better soon!
