  12. Elizabeth - are "celebrities" subjected the same rules as the rest of us? Do they have to have home studies, etc... or can they work out private adoptions without any of the paperwork? I am curious about this. It seems that when these folks lives, warts and all, are played out in the media, it would be awfully hard to ever receive an "objective" fair evaluation. I would think the statement "adopting to save the marriage" would be reason enough to preclude them from adopting. Just my 2 cents...

I have felt and said from the beginning and still feel the same way today that the only one who has been cheated of anything is Danny - and unfortunately, I can't ask him whether or not he agrees. We have absolutely no regrets about our adopting Danny. As a father, I am sad for him that he will never have some of the opportunities that healthy children have to play sports, be in school plays, have long talks with best friends, etc..., but in contrast many healthy children will never receive the amount of lo
  21. Oh Elizabeth... thank you for that article. There is so much there that we can identify with. "It's worth it all just to see him smile," said Heather Peralta. This is our greatest joy with Danny. Just seeing him smile is everything to us. To know that he is comfortable and happy and that he knows he is loved is all we need. Heather used to think having such a child would be the worst fate. Now she feels the bigger the challenge, the better the reward.
