Welcome

Thanks for stopping by! Whatever Things Are True covers politics, policy, and parenting in international adoption. Too often, the way we talk about international adoption reminds me of that old fable about The Blind Men and the Elephant – we tend to confuse one small part of the animal for the whole beast. Although I’m the mother of three via international adoption, I try to take a child-centered approach to adoption issues. I hope you’ll stick around and share your thoughts, too.

Well, there's indeed hope for those who look for it. I'm happy that Lea's life is complete again with her new family and her long-lost brother. It shows that being adopted may bring ups and downs, but most of those stories have a moment of unconditional love between the parents and their chosen children.

That is a wonderful, uplifting, life affirming story.
