Worth Reading - A Friend's post about Adoption Insensitivity

It is refreshing to hear some outrage from someone outside of the adoption community. My recent post "You're Adopted.  Hahahahaha!"  stirred up some strong feelings among readers.  One comment in particular inspired my friend, Michelle, to write a post that I think you should read.  Click on the link below.
