After the 1960's introduced LSD to our culture, white farm people wanted to be parents, but if didn't think it was possible, so they created a term they called "Jahovah's witnesses"--- This type of family is workable on a large farm property, away from contact of the larger world.
However, if you are the only person you see in your entire family who doesn't look "normal" questions start to arise from a very young age.
At the end of the day, if your child IS an "alien" or feels like one because there is no one else around to trust who shares any remote facial features, you will stare in the mirror
wondering what it would be like to be able to read your own face
Wondering what it would be like for your family to be able to read your face,
Wondering why they said you were "handicapped" at seven years old.
Word to the wiser, and the Jahovah's witnesses.
I have several critiques--- 1. If one or both partners know what it's like to be adopted, then I believe you should have the right to adopt.
2. If you choose to adopt,
make sure your child LOOKS LIKE the people in your family.
If they don't, you will not be able to read thier face, and they will not be able to read yours.
3. ADOPT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS;
If your child seems to be acting up, it does not necessarily mean they are 'mentally ill' as there is a list of physical disorders which present as 'bipolar,' 'ADD' or 'Aspergers' where your child's mind is not sick, and the cause is actually physical.
4. You cannot teach your child racism or predjudice. They will not understand.
