Having a happy family could

Having a happy family could be considered as a blessing. Some couple are deciding to adopt a child for their own reasons. Probably, you've now heard about the boy who was sent back to Russia by his adopted mother. As if international associations weren't strained enough, the Russian adoption return might make things just a little worse. I do not know who should be blamed, the adoptive parents or the adoption agency, though I think I side with parents. (Any person see that movie The Orphan? This is almost the exact same thing, except no one's been killed yet.) Some children are just not best served in a normal home, and need more extensive care than a normal family can provide or even fund, besides payday advances or second jobs.
