Go Angelina Go!

Who couldn't be happy for her (and him)! She is adopting another child, this time a little brother for Maddox (big bro for the girls). That makes one bio and three adopted - you go girl!

I don't understand the grief that she gets when she decides to add to her family. People always say that she skips the process and does things illegally. Come on, we don't know every single detail of her life. We don't know when paperwork is filed. We don't know when her home visits are. If I were her I'd make people in the process sign confidentiality papers. I mean do people really believe what they read online?

For those of you who think she is baby collecting (a term used in my singles adoption group last week..a term that absolutely horrified me) dig down deep. Are you upset that she has the financial means to be able to adopt more than once? It's not cheap people, mine is creeping up to over $17K. That's a lot of money when you don't even make 40K. Are you upset that she has the support of her partner, a man who loves her kids as much as she does?

I guess it all boils down to if you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all. What she does is none of our business. If you can't be happy for a family that is growing by either bio births or adoption then keep it to yourself.

Go Angelina Go!
