  1. Elizabeth, I will say here that you got my attention with a few PMs that went between us. I was one that said that my family would have a problem with adopting an African American child. I really did believe that, as my father has a slang reference for just about all ethnic groups. I received a few direct statements from Elizabeth that really made me question my motives. I see my dad a couple of times per year. It would crush me if I had a child that he wouldn't accept, but I would survive it.

  2. Wow, now the additions are coming in! Congratulations to the Singh family!
  3. Congratulations to the proud aps and welcome to the precious little one!

  6. Congratulations! What a great Christmas gift!
  7. We have always planned to adopt to grow our family. It has been something I have wanted to do pretty much ever since I can remember.

  8. That is wonderful! It brought tears to my eyes just readin the shirts! I hope that when the time comes I look at it as expecting!! (Sometimes I am too logical for my own good!!!)
  9. What a horrible thing to happen to a child! Denial is one of the things that scares me at this point. Thank you for posting this information and letting us know that one denial doesn't mean all will. I am fairly new to the adoption world, but I have a sweet friend that has been there and is walking beside me! Elizabeth, thank you so much for being in Memphis last Wednesday. I enjoyed hearing (and seeing) your passion for adoption and speaking with you afterward.
