The Agony and Ecstasy of Adoption

It's hard to listen to NPR anchor Scott Simon's at-once misty-and clear-eyed story of picking up his adopted daughter in China without thinking of the far different, gutwrenching experiences of the guys at fullerbranter.com (formerly homokiddosfo).

Set aside for a moment the questions of gay vs straight adoption. (Not easy, considering the obstacles gay couples trying to adopt face in countries like China. Or states like Florida.) It boggles this new parent's mind what emotional, financial and logistical challenges some people are willing to endure to get a kid, something that came so easily to us (no pun intended; this is officially a thoughtful, meditative post.)
