My Definition of Adoption
When it comes to definitions, I’ll just say that Webster didn’t know everything. Wikipedia doesn’t cut it, either.
Adoption is a social, legal, emotional, spiritual, anthropological phenomenon that profoundly changes individuals, family members, neighbors, communities and cultures.
My definition of adoption is something along these lines:
• society’s expression of its faith the future
• a family’s commitment to love
• a leap into the unknown
• a place to grow and become your own self
• a bridge connecting the past to the present and beyond
